Hi, In the throws of getting ready to make our move to Kona. I'm close to the port of Long Beach CA and am trying to figure out if Kona Container guy is reasonable or not. For example, their Preferred Plus service is an additional $4900 for them to load up the 40Ft. container, packing blankets and tie downs, and then of course unload it in Kona. I'm an hours drive away from the port so it's not that. When I questioned the quote I was told the H.Depot blankets alone are a thousand dollars. The container, drop off/pick up taxes fees it self as a DIY is $8900 for 40 Ft. container.
Is it reasonable for a DIYer to be able to pack a container for ocean voyage ourselves, the blankets and some guys to load it correctly for this??
