Shipping Cars To Or From Port Of Marblehead
The name Marblehead is a unique name which often leaves users of the port wondering about its origin. The harbor was given the name by settlers who confused granite ledges in the area with marble. Since then, the Port of Marblehead has grown to become one of the busiest ports in Ottawa County. It is located at Massachusetts Bay, on the northeastern part of the area, and is about 22km away from Boston. The deep harbor which is sheltered by rocks that resemble marble has become a landmark in Ohio and beyond. A-1 Auto Transport is a frequent user of the port when exporting or importing in the US or internationally.

The Port of Marblehead is one of the busiest harbor complexes in Ohio with both private and government vessels docking at its shore. Although small in size, the port can accommodate vessels that are 500 feet in length carrying automobiles and general cargo. The ships are guided into the wharves for easier loading and unloading. In 2013, this port was ranked 84th in cargo tonnage giving it credibility as a key player for shipping cars to or from Port of Marblehead.
The tonnage handled by the port includes commercial items and vehicles that leave the port on a daily basis. Shipping companies have an easy time getting their cars onto carriers because of hi-tech equipment and computerized systems used in the clearance of goods from storage. Vehicle movers can also activate satellite tracking for customers as soon as they are at the harbor to give them a chance to monitor movement from start to finish.
The building of the first navy commissioned ship was done at Marblehead. The ship which was used in the American Revolution and captained by harbor mariners from the seaport gave it a place in marine history. Due to this military background, vehicles used by the armed forces are often processed through the port.

Costs of shipping through Port of Marblehead
Shipping costs may vary from one auto transport company to another. It is advisable to ask for referrals from friends or families that have shipped their cars before through the port. Most companies that ship through the harbor are familiar with the processes, thus shortening the wait time before a go-ahead to leave or load cars into ships is given. To cut down on costs when shipping, ensure that your car is clean and all fluids are drained to a prescribed level. If possible, remove all personal items and detachable aftermarket parts to reduce the weight of the car and to further cut down on costs.
