Domestic auto shipping to and from the port of Ashtabula
Domestic shipping of cars to or from port of Ashtabula is possible as the harbor is easily accessible via road and railroad. The Interstate 90 (I-90) highway that runs east/west is only 5 miles from the port. The north/south highway close to the harbor is the State Route 11. We, A-1 Auto Transport, ship cars to locations in all 50 states of the US. In the Ashtabula Harbor and surrounding areas, we do door-to-door and terminal-to-door delivery of cars as we do not have a terminal in the Ashtabula City.
International car shipping at the port of Ashtabula
Being part of a major seaway connected to the Atlantic Ocean, one can imagine the possibilities of international shipping of cars to or from the port of Ashtabula. Unfortunately, the harbor does not have the facilities or equipment to handle auto shipping. The docks at the harbor, most of which are operated by Kinder Morgan/Pinney Dock & Transport, handle self-unloading vessels. Ships used for auto transport are container ships and RORO vessels – neither of these two types of ship self-unload.
Individuals and car dealers in Ashtabula have to use other ports for international shipping. The port you choose has to be geographically convenient to you. Also, your overseas destination should help you determine a suitable port. When shipping to or from countries in the Pacific Rim, we recommend using the ports on the western coast. Such are the ports of Vancouver, Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle. When shipping to countries with access to the Atlantic Ocean, east coast ports such as Philadelphia, Boston, and New York are convenient.
Boat shipping to and from Ashtabula Harbor
Lake Erie is a large fresh water lake, meaning there is an abundance of recreational activities such as fishing, cruising, kayaking, and sailing.

However, there is a wild thrill to cruising in a boat that you personally hand-picked. We have high-quality boat shipping services and can help you ship your boat or yacht to the harbor.
Because we use the roll-on/roll-off method during loading and unloading, your boat will arrive at the port without a scratch. And should any damage occur during transit, our insurance coverage will compensate you to the last coin.
