How long does it take to ship a car to Russia?

NYC to Russia in general takes about 2-3 weeks. Of course where you’re shipping from/to adds time. Los Angeles to Russia can be 3-4 weeks via the Panama Canal. Arrival times are not guaranteed as weather and mechanical trouble can delay arrival - however I have not had any problems with delays - most ships are on a very tight schedule.

If you’re a left coaster, what you should consider is whether you want to drive across country for fun and ship from an east coast port. Or, do you want to put your car in a truck and ship it to east coast port? You also can just ship it from Long Beach, CA, Port Hueneme, CA or Galveston, TX. Just discuss options with us and consider your schedule.

What about if I don't live close to shipping port?

We can pick up your car and transport it to nearest shipping port or accross a country. Vehicles are either driven onto the ship or into auto containers which measure 7x7x19-feet long. Large or oversized vehicles will cost $150-$250 more to ship from a state to a terminal along with an additional surcharge aboard ship.
