East Cleveland is a city located in Cuyahoga County and home to a population of over 17,800 residents. As the name implies, East Cleveland sits just east of Cleveland, which borders on the city’s western and northern edges, while the city of Cleveland Heights sits to the east and south. East Cleveland was originally formed as an unincorporated community not long after Cleveland was founded, and was incorporated first as a village in 1895 and a city in 1910. East Cleveland is perhaps best known for being the home of Nela Park, the first industrial park in the U.S. and is still in operation today; now, it is the home of GE Lighting, the second largest employer in the city.

Auto Transport to and from East Cleveland
East Cleveland, naturally, is a part of the Cleveland Metropolitan Area, and if you’re shipping to or from East Cleveland you likely won’t see any difference in price or services if you were shipping to Cleveland proper, or any of its neighboring cities and suburbs. This is because car shipping carriers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities and their surrounding metro areas. Since Cleveland is so large, and East Cleveland so close, ten miles here or there for pickup or delivery will not affect your shippers’ price at all.
Carriers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities along major interstate highways, and in that East Cleveland is not so lucky – there are no major interstate highways that run either through or sit in close proximity to the city. This is where the city’s distance helps as well; while car shipping carriers will have to adjust their routes and travel along either surface streets or along a state highway, it won’t make much of a difference if at all. If the price is still too high, you can also discuss alternative pickup or delivery locations within the Cleveland metro area that may help save money.
