To ship a car to Azerbaijan, contact the international embassy immediately. It is highly recommended that you do this before you schedule a ship date so you can appropriately prepare the vehicle for transport.
You should have a mechanic inspect the vehicle so any leaks can be fixed.
Prior to your vehicle boarding the ship, it will need to pass an inspection. Typically, this inspection is only done for cars that are not encapsulated. If your vehicle will not be in a container, make sure to remove any personal belongings. Call the Embassy of Azerbaijan to see what restrictions apply to cars entering the country.

How Shipping Services Are Priced.
The way you have your car delivered is the biggest factor in the cost for shipping services. RO/RO transport services are usually anywhere over a $1,000, whereas container methods can cost well over $3,000. Container transport is higher in price because of the extra space you get inside the container along with the vehicle. You may fill the leftover space with other possessions. This shipping method can be split with another individual to lessen the costs.
