Moving to Hawaii
Welcome to paradise! Land of long sandy beaches, amazing wildlife, volcanoes and palm trees. Moving to Hawaii really is a move to a tropical paradise.
When you are considering your relocation to Hawaii don’t forget that you will be in for a whole new experience in seasons. Hawaii like most tropical islands has only 2 seasons a year. The dry season, much like an eternal summertime, has temperatures that will hit the upper 80s but the islands location does tend to keep it more on the milder side than most thanks to the trade winds. The second season is the wet season where temperatures can drop to the low 60s (terrible I know).
Very few people move their family to Hawaii with first having a job lined up. The reason for this is that the job market can be tough with a high population and the cost of moving from the mainland can be prohibitive, however if you are just planning your move to HI then consider some of the options available. First and most important is tourism, this accounts for a sizeable portion of the economy and offers positions in just about every way you can think of. Second is the import/export business and transportation. With island hopping and commuting it is surprising how many small commuter businesses there are. Agriculture is still a strong industry of the islands and provides coffee, nuts, pineapples, sugarcane and bees to the mainland.
With its location in the mid-pacific ocean most things that are available must be shipped in. This means that the cost of living is very high (almost twice the mainland average) and products are not always obtainable. But one you are used to this 'Out of stock' lifestyle you will be as relaxed as the locals.
Before you plan your relocation to HI you have to consider the major downsides to moving here is getting here with all your life and belongings in tow. Due to its location remember to plan well in advance as there are a lot of hurdles that can slow the process. First on the list is to book transport for your household items and especially your car which can take between 3 weeks and a month to arrive. With potential environmental damage by foreign plant species check with the Department of Agriculture to see if any plant you wish to bring are on the banned list. If you are moving to HI with your pets they will need to undergo a quarantine inspection which can take anything from 30 days up to 120 days! There is also only one quarantine facility in Hawaii which means you may need to leave your pet on a different island to where you plan to live.
