Moving to Big Island Checklist
In response to 143655: You must make Hawai'i your primary location, posted by Shirley on Wednesday, 20 November 2019, at 1:49 p.m.
We are considering moving to the Big Island. We are aware of a lot of considerations, such as, the higher cost-of-living; the isolation issue; the cost to visit family on the mainland; and the difficulty with online shopping with respect to some companies refusing to ship to Hawaii. If we decide to move to the Big Island we would, most likely, purchase a house to avoid the high monthly HOA fees associated with buying a condo. We were wondering if anyone has ever seen a checklist of all of the moving considerations, as we are sure there are some complications or issues of which we are unaware. We are new to this message board, but we assume these types of questions are asked of the current residents quite often and you are probably tired of answering them! That’s why we thought there might be something already prepared out there to help us out. Any input and advice from residents who have previously moved from the mainland would be greatly appreciated!
