sounds like a good idea - when you go down that path, you might also try quotes from a few other states or online shops (including forum sponsors) as you might find a cheaper deal even with the slightly higher cost of shipping (although west coast isn't Hawaii cost, it is higher than south/midwest/online). my sister lived in Hawaii for a few years and always had a few stories about outrageous costs.
