Ship a Vehicle to Moscow, Russia from the United States
Shipping a vehicle to Moscow from the United States is very possible. Expect to pay duties and have all proper documentation with you to present to Customs. There will be policies to adhere to as well. One must contact the Embassy of Russia for further information.
Some of the documentation that might be needed include:
- License or Picture ID

About Moscow and Its Surroundings
Moscow is the capital of Russia. It is also the most populous, with more than 12 million residents. The city happens to be the coldest megacity on Earth. It also holds Europe's tallest free-standing structure and the tallest skyscraper in the continent.
As busy and industrial as Moscow is, 40% of it is greenery. It has large forests outside of its metropolis. The capital is widely known for its architecture. The region is rich in history and holds many cathedrals and towers.
Shipping Methods Available
There are several shipping methods available but only two of them are practical. The third, air shipping is practically impossible for most due to its high cost. The other two are much cheaper.
The RO/RO shipping is the least expensive. It requires that the vehicle roll onto and off of a ship. The vehicle must only contain the floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire.
Container shipping allows a person to ship other belongings. There are two container sizes to choose from. The vehicle is placed in the container. The vehicle and the container can have other property in it, as long as the items are cleared by Customs. The container can be shared which will help ease costs.
