We have some important guidelines to consider when looking for cheap parcel delivery to Russia one key one being to always provide a working recipient phone number in the details when you book so that any issues that may occur can be resolved in the destination. Transit times can take longer than it takes to deliver to nearby Estonia and Finland, often due to the size of the country.
Sending parcels internationally can be expensive, so we have worked hard to forge relationships with global couriers who can deliver at a fraction of the cost that you would have had to pay if booking directly with a courier. The reason we have lower shipping rates is down to the fact we send so many parcels with the couriers we resell via our quote engine, meaning they provide us with a better price, which we hand over to our customers.
For parcel deliveries from the UK to Russia, you can expect to pay from £19.99 upwards. This price comes from TrakPak, a service designed for the eCommerce market to give UK retailers access to cost-effective global delivery. This is collected by a courier from your home or work address, sent to the TrakPak depot in Basildon, where the parcel will then be sorted and dispatched to Russia.
The alternative product we can offer is Parcelforce Priority International, which is fully tracked collected by them and delivered by their Russian equivalent in the country. This courier service offers a free collection from your home or work address, or if you prefer you can drop your parcel off at your local Post Office or Parcelforce depot, as long as it is listed on our site in the booking process. You can book Parcelforce online via our quote engine from just £25.79, and this is our most frequently booked product to Russia.
TrakPak and Parcelforce can take heavier parcels to Russia from the UK as well, they both accept goods up to the weight of 30kg for this destination. Parcelforce comes into their own at the heavier end of parcel delivery to cities such as Moscow and St.Petersburg, as you can send something of this weight from just £71.99 on their service.
When shipping parcels around the globe, there are several countries where you are required to fill in Customs Documents. This is so the customs officers in Russia can see what you are sending and to whom. Many customers worry about this process, so we make it as easy as possible. We have built into the booking process a form to fill in, so once completed you can just print out and attach to your box. It is important to declare the value of the goods accurately and to give details of your goods including the colour, what it is you are sending and how many items are in the box. If you do this when booking, and the box contains nothing prohibited, it should clear customs and be sent on for delivery with no problem. If you have any questions about sending a parcel to Russia, feel free to Contact Us via email or Live Chat.
You should always check before shipping that your consignment does not contain anything prohibited for that particular destination.
In Russia there are restrictions on shipping, some items are listed below plus you can read more here.
Russia is huge, the world's largest nation in fact and home to 143.5 million people, meaning the chances of you needing to send a parcel there one day are quite high. We help customers ship personal goods to friends or family as well as parcels that contain business items. Not only this eCommerce is set to grow massively in the years to come in Russia, estimated in some quarters to increase by 13% next year alone. Internet penetration is around 66% in Russia and on the rise, so having access to reliable affordable parcel delivery services, such as ours, could be of use to you now and in the future.
TIP- If you do sell online and want to target Russia, be sure to consider Yandex as this is the search engine of choice in Russia. Many Russians are looking to the UK for fashion, and many big-name retailers have had great success in this market.
