Shipping Container Costs to Russia

Russia might not yet be as popular among immigrants as its Western European neighbours, but this vast, culturally and historically colourful country has plenty to offer expats. Towns and cities can be very different from each other, so it's good to get to know the culture of the place you're moving to beforehand. The winters are harsh and summers can be hot too. There are plenty of museums, theatres and historical sites to explore and football, ice hockey, rugby, swimming and mountaineering are just a few of the many sports you can enjoy in Russia.

Shipping your possessions to Russia should be a smooth process. If you don't know which shipping container to use, just remember that a 20-foot container will hold the contents of an average 3-bedroom house while a 40-foot container will accommodate the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house. A 40-foot container is also suitable if you're taking a car along with the contents of your 3-bed house.
