Now that we know that we’ll be living on the Big Island of Hawaii, the next step is deciding if we bring everything with us or start a fresh new life and buy new.
This is something you really need to think about before you move to Hawaii. It isn’t something to take lightly because it can mean leaving everything behind or spending a lot of money to ship all your belongings to your new home.
Moving to Hawaii
Our decision, start fresh with all new. Well, for the most part.
After getting a quote from Pods, for over $7,000 for their smallest pod and waiting as much as a month for our belongings to arrive in Hawaii, we decided we could pretty much buy everything all over again and spend less money. We weren’t planning on bringing everything anyway.
We will be bringing some of our clothing, mostly whatever we can fit in one suitcase per person and we’ll mail some of our special personal items like pictures, family tree research, and a few small boxes of toys. Mostly just the expensive Lego’s of Thaddeus’ and a few other items we don’t want to part from.
We will be selling off everything else and I mean everything. Furniture, tools, lawn mower, snow blower, appliances, and everything in between.
