The import tax for a motor vehicle in Russia is roughly 25% of the vehicle value, in addition to the value added tax (VAT) of 18%. You can start to see how the costs can add up quickly when shipping a car to Russia--there’s also an annual vehicle tax, which is based on the engine output of the car. Cars with a lot of horsepowers will be much more expensive to maintain on a year-to-year basis because of the tiered vehicle tax.

Russia Auto Shipping | Driving & Registering A Vehicle

Driving anywhere you’re unfamiliar with can be tricky and it helps to do some learning before you get there, especially in Russia. If you’ve never been, study up; if you have, these resources will help re-familiarize you with the road signs and licensing information in Russia.

Getting A License In Russia - For Americans importing a car into Russia, this helpful information will clarify the process of getting a local license.

Understanding Road Signs In Russia - A nice, no-frills visual representation of the most common street signs you’ll encounter while driving an automobile in Russia.

  • Registering a car in Russia is not as difficult or time-consuming as it can be some other foreign countries. Russia does offer temporary vehicle registration, which is valid for three months but can be extended up to a full year in some cases. Learn more about the vehicle registration process in Russia here.
  • Tax-free auto imports are limited to certain vehicles and most personal or commercial auto shipping to Russia do not meet the criteria. Tax-free car transport to Russia is only for foreign diplomats and vehicles that will be used for official business (for example, construction projects, medical services, etc.)

As of 2014, Russia does not charge a duty for the import of electric vehicles, though the value added tax does still apply. There is discussion that Russia may also eliminate the VAT for electric vehicles in the near future.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Russia

Like most things in life, when you hire a company to do a service for you, you want it done right the first time.  Especially when shipping internationally from the U.S. to Russia, proper planning and working with a reputable shipping company goes a long way.  At A-1 Auto Transport, we have a commitment to deliver and have the industry experience to do it.  We not only ship heavy trucks or large vehicles, for we can accommodate any oversized and heavy shipping need.  In recent months we have worked with folks and organizations who have needed to transport the following items overseas:

Mowers                                            Crawler Loaders

Log Loaders                                    Scissor Lifts

Cranes                                              Trenchers

Pontoon Boats                                 Skidders

Tractors                                            Boom Lifts

Bulldozers                                       Forklifts

And much more!

Each and every piece of freight that leaves the U.S. has a unique shipping circumstance that impacts its cost, vessel type and method of transport. At A-1, we have numerous options to get your oversized and/or heavy cargo to Russia.

Options in Shipping Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Russia

  • Container Shipping-  Shipping via a container is one of the safest and most common ways to ship cargo internationally.  Being limited to 40ft, container shipping isn’t always suitable for larger cargo and another option may be more ideal.
  • Flat Rack Shipping-  Flat racks are essentially shipping containers without walls and a roof.  This setup allows them to fit the most unusual types of cargo that couldn’t be crated otherwise.  Freight does typically get exposed to the elements with this type of shipping due flat racks being unstackable and stored on top of the ship during transport.  Shrink wrapping is an option for extra protection if necessary.
  • LoLo Shipping-  LoLo is short for Lift On/Lift Off and its purpose is to lift inoperable freight from the dock to the vessel and back again at port.  Very useful in shipping oversized items that wouldn’t otherwise fit into a container.
  • RoRo Shipping- RoRo is short for Roll On/Roll Off and is the cheapest, most convenient method of shipping to overseas.  As long as your cargo is self propelled and able to move from the dock to the ship’s hull, then RoRo is an option for you.  Secured to the deck within the ship’s hull, transporting with this method is the usually the least expensive.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
