Hawaii – Navy Community
Each service member is authorized to ship one privately owned vehicle at government expense.
Check with your current Household Goods officer for current information regarding shipping times and locations. You must have permission from the lien holder to transport the vehicle to Hawaii. If the vehicle is co-registered, you must also show that person’s permission to ship the vehicle. If you are shipping a privately owned vehicle (POV), it will require approximately 35 days from the East Coast, 32 days from the Midwest, 33 days from the Southeast or 25 days from the West Coast to reach Oahu. All personal vehicles must be safety inspected and registered within 30 days after arrival on the island.
