Matson no longer sells partial containers nor do they consolidate peoples goods to make a full container. You need to go through a freight forwarded who will take your pallet, consolidate it with others and ship via a full container to the frieght forwarders terminal on the mainland where they open up the container, and parse it out accordingly. Anyway, the smallest container Matson has is 20' - probably in the $5K range to ship from BI to mainland. I just shipped a mill and lathe to Kauai from NorCal via YRC.com - 2800lbs of the finest american-built machines for $1800.

No contact number in Hilo, but contact YRC.com and ask for a subsidiary located in Hilo.
