September 8, 2005 “I just wanted to let you know that Home Depot has a website that people can purchase from, but it doesn’t ship to Hawaii. My husband works at Home Depot in Iwilei, and he receives a lot of calls from local people who shop the Home Depot website only to find out they can’t buy the products online. Because not all products are offered in the store, customers often have to settle for something that isn’t exactly what they wanted. I was telling him about the article in the Advertiser about your service, and I just printed out your information to give to customers who want to buy from Home Depot online.

I hope your business is going strong because we need the option you provide. Some mainland businesses act like they are shipping to Mars instead of Hawaii! Thank you!” – Carrie J.

“Aloha. Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know WHAT A GREAT SERVICE YOU HAVE!!! I just picked up three packages as kind of a trial run because I didn’t know what to expect and everything was actually better than expected. The pricing was very fair, delivery was fast, and the boxes arrived in perfect shape. Hoku Express was very helpful and courteous and seems to make a great partner for you. Your e-mail notifications were perfect - just enough to be informative. Thanks and BEST OF LUCK!!”

“I picked up the bookcase today. It arrived with no damage to the item itself, although the crate was a little beat up.  I am seriously happy with the service you guys provide.  I know my home wouldn't be the same, because of the items I have been able to ship through you, that otherwise I probably would have passed up.  If you are ever doing any promotion work and you need a quote from a happy customer, call me - I'm at your service.

Great company, excellent customer service.  Fast and affordable.  I had furniture shipped from an online company that doesn't ship to Hawaii.  I thought it would be expensive and complex.  It was simple.  Took only a week from the time the package was received at their California warehouse to the time it was ready for pickup in Honolulu!  I compared rates with other shippers, and the price beat all other estimates.  In some cases, the cost may even be better than the shipping surcharge that you have to pay to ship large items to Hawaii from companies that do offer shipping to the islands.  Although they don't offer door-to-door service, if you have a truck an can pick it up, it can save hundreds.  The guys at the warehouse are friendly and loaded everything to my car.  Nothing is too far away with this company!  I would definitely use them again.

I really appreciate the quick service and excellent communication, and wanted to let you know that you've got one faithful customer here.  Mahalo again!

“How many times do you come across 'Free shipping...except to Hawaii and Alaska'?  We simply can't avoid the fact that there aren't cheap options to get products overseas, but Ship to Hawaii offers you another option to get it here cheaper.  Simply sign up for an account on their easy to use website and get you customer code.

When you purchase something, simply use their California warehouse address as the delivery place and include your assigned customer code and it will arrive here in Hawaii at there warehouse that is shared with Aala Shipping.  They will only charge your credit card after the items have arrived and you can use their online calculator to estimate the cost to ship your item.

I love IKEA and because they don't ship to Hawaii at all, I tried Ship to Hawaii to get my son's loft bed here.  For a fraction of what other shipping companies would charge, It was about $180 to get a very large heavy box (about 100lbs) to Hawaii.  I was very happy to pay that and get a cute and quality piece of furniture for a fraction of the cost of what could be paid at the local furniture stores.  One unnamed local furniture store was selling a similar bed for $800!  Shipping plus the bed from IKEA is half that price!

I received emails from Ship to Hawaii when my package arrived in the CA warehouse and then a few days later in the Hawaii warehouse.  Then you pick it up at Aala Shipping.  It was all quite painless and easy and I've found a great option to buy furniture online!  I'm beyond grateful for another option to get IKEA stuff.

“Thank you very much for being so patient and helpful.  as a first time customer I was so anxious waiting for the drums to come in.  Everyone was so professional and helpful, even at the dock when I checked in.  The drums came in all the way from Florida and everything was intact.  My husband was very surprised with his new drum kit.  He plays for a rock band Wicked Scarlet which has been nominated for a Hoku for Rock Album of the Year.  They will also be opening for Halestorm when they come to concert in Hawaii.  I am so grateful for your business to make this possible.

“As a new Ship To Hawai'i customer (I've only done a couple of packages so far), I'm overall very pleased that I joined.  Getting stuff to Hawai'i is expensive and frustrating---it drives me crazy to have an online merchant offer free or very low cost shipping anywhere on the mainland and then quote completely outrageous charges for sending it to Hawai'i.  My first package saved me 4x the annual membership cost, and even better, I was able to get exactly what I wanted, which wasn't available locally. 

A few things I've noticed that I'd like to pass along, primarily related to the 'dimensional weight' method of calculating shipping cost:  First, I learned that dimensional weight is often much more than actual weight, and this really comes into play with online merchants that pack little things in big boxes---which is way too much of the time.  Accordingly, Ship to Hawai'i seems to be the most valuable when sending heavier things in smaller boxes.  Second, I've found it very challenging to find out at the time of ordering what the dimensions of a package will be, so that I can choose which method of shipping is best.  A lot of websites don't even tell you shipping weight of the order, and the only way I've been able to get dimensions is calling their customer service -- and even then they often have to get back to you after checking with the warehouse.  Finally, not all online merchants are up to speed on the California sales tax issue; the FAQs at Ship to Hawai'i say that sales tax doesn't apply, but on my most recent order the seller said they had no choice but to collect sales tax, but that once it was transshipped by Ship To Hawai'i, I could submit the bill of lading and get a credit for the CA sales tax paid.  Don't know yet how that's going to play out. 

All in all, I'm really glad I'm using Ship To Hawai'i, and I hope these tips will help others choose it too---there's no doubt i'd still have joined if I knew all this ahead of time!
