Shipping to Hawaii

Recommended Posts

Hi, Ladies,

 

Have any of your shipped stuff to Oahu? I have a ton of things to take and I'm thinking about shipping it to my WC. I've been searching for cost effective ways to ship my items there but I haven't found much.

 

I'm looking to ship about 100 chargers, 100 fans, 90 parasols, and other misc. things. Any and all help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

hey! i shipped about 9 boxes of stuff to HI (Big Island) from the East Coast.

 

my recommendation is to send everything USPS parcel post (the cheapest way) just make sure to bring it boxed and sealed with plain clear tape to the post office - the only boxing / tape they have for free is the Priority Mail and that is much more expensive.

 

I think it cost us about $100 to ship everything ( a lot of stuff) and it was SOOO WORTH it!

I sent stuff from Vancouver to Maui but used my company's FedEx account. If you have time, send it USPS with a tracking number.. probably alot cheaper than FedEx or UPS.

hawaii is a bargain to ship too. I've only mailed letters, but they are the standard rate of 47cents. same for alaska. I thought there would be an additional fee.

 

when i was spending so much on postage to send out wedding invites, I felt like I really for my money's worth for the hawaii & alaska ones.

 

not sure if it's the same for packages.

it is the same for packages Morgan.

 

as for time the things i sent USPS took about 1 week but can take up to 2 so make sure you send them early (like 1 month before) and ask your WC to store them :)

Thanks Alyssa, You said you shipped 9 boxes were they huge boxes filled or lightly packed and stuffed for shipping? I'm trying to determine approx. how much its going to be. Even though I have a lot of things, weight wise, they don't weigh that much. Thanks~

most of the boxes were small and packed tight but we had 2 larger ones b/c of their contents, we packed them for shipping with newspaper or peanuts. i used the smallest possible boxes to consolidate and make it easier for our WC to store everything!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
