The International Move Process to Russia

We specialize in international moves to Russia, and our years of experience and expertise give us an unparalleled understanding of the process. With our comprehensive knowledge of the Russian customs regulations, we can ensure that your move is smooth and hassle-free.

We make sure that all of your belongings are safe, secure, and delivered on time. Our team is dedicated to providing top-notch services for individuals relocating to Russia.

Initial Consultation

Organizing an international move to Russia can be a complicated process. At Hercules Moving Company, we are here to make the experience seamless and stress-free. We start with a free consultation, where we discuss your moving needs and requirements.

This is when we determine the timeline of your move as well as how many items you need shipped, what services you require and other factors that will affect the cost of your move.

Having all this information beforehand is crucial in ensuring that our teams have everything they need to help make your relocation successful and efficient.

Virtual Survey

After the initial consultation, Hercules Moving Company offers customers a modern and fast way to get an estimate with our AI Estimating tool Yembo.ai.

Yembo.ai helps reduce the time needed for the estimate, as it can automatically detect inventory and measure the volume of items via a simple video call. In addition, all inventory will be prepared according to international standards, such as those specified by the ISO 17451.

With this modern and easy virtual survey tool, customers can rest assured that their inventory will be safely taken care of - all without leaving the comfort of their homes! Hercules Moving Company stays up-to-date with the latest technologies so that customers can benefit from them when relocating abroad.

Receive All In and Transparent Quote

After the virtual survey, Hercules Moving Company uses Yembo.ai to finalize a minimum amount of required factors in order to provide you with an online all-inclusive and transparent estimate. This estimate clearly mentions all charges and it is tailored for your budget and needs.

Our international moving coordinators are experienced professionals who will take into account many factors when determining the best estimate for your relocation. Every client has a personalized approach and we always strive to meet their expectations while working within their budget.

Furthermore, we can price match with any reputable moving company or Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) member for our international moving services.

Expert Packing for Moving to Russia

It's packing day and the move to Russia is booked! Be aware that most countries do not allow Packed by Owner containers (PBO) as they may have different safety regulations.

Should your items be packed by you and customs won't allow it, long delays and extra charges may follow.

At Hercules Moving Company we have years of experience in international moving and know this inside out! Our team of expert packers will use the best packing materials and techniques available.

Instead of moving blankets you'll get branded Alligator Wrap, extra sturdy international moving boxes, specialized packing foams for delicate items, etc. Note that international packing has to be performed much better than simple local packing.

We will also prepare an inventory list that meets all import-export requirements to make sure there are no surprises once your shipment arrives at the destination port. During the packing we will make sure all your belongings are safe during the overseas transport.

We offer quality international packing services along with an experienced team, specialized materials and techniques to make sure your relocation

Customs Clearance When Moving to Russia

Moving your items to an international destination requires expertise and a thorough knowledge of policies and protocols. After expert packing for a move to Russia is completed, the shipment is loaded and shipped with a preferred method. Upon arrival, your shipment will be inspected by the customs of the country of relocation.

This is known as customs clearance - the process which allows certain goods to enter the destination country. The customs clearance procedures involve completing documents and providing information about the items that are being moved.

It is especially important to have experienced professionals who understand international regulations and requirements – something Hercules Moving Company provides its customers.

We also offer personalized support during the customs clearance process, from assisting clients in completing paperwork to addressing any questions or concerns they have.

Our services help ensure a smooth transition for our clients when relocating overseas, minimizing delays and providing peace of mind that their items will arrive on time and without any issues.

At Hercules Moving Company, we understand the importance of customs clearance when moving to Russia, which is why we dedicate our expertise in helping make this necessary process as easy as possible for our customers.

Delivery to Russia

Once the items have cleared customs and are ready for delivery, a trusted agent in the destination country will handle the process. Delivery or destination service is an optional service that clients can choose to receive if they have selected door-to-door service.

If you would prefer to handle delivery yourself, you can opt out of this service. Debris removal is included in the service if it is on the same moving day; this helps keep your new home clean and tidy after a move.

Additionally, our delivery services help you focus on settling into your new home without worrying about the logistics of moving. Our movers can even help you stage the furniture how you like in your new home.

We understand that relocating to Russia can be overwhelming and that’s why we offer our expertise when delivering items overseas. Our international movers to Russia offer reliable and secure services for your belongings during their journey and provide you with peace of mind throughout the process.

What Clients say About Us

Private User

These Burlington movers did a great job moving my wife and I out of our downtown condo. Took care of everything they moved, and did things quickly and efficiently. The quote itself was reasonable and compared well to others. Will use them again for future moves.

The movers arrived on time and impressed me with their friendly and polite demeanour. They completed the move professionally, taking care to pack and protect each of the items to be moved.I was very pleased with the job that was done. I would heartily recommend them.


I cannot even begin to describe how dedicated and experienced these movers are... They were life-savers on my moving day and truly believe in the highest level of performance.

I called Hercules movers because I needed to transfer furniture from the office in Ottawa to the warehouse in a short time. In response, the moving specialist offered me several payment options, packing materials to purchase and available time slots to choose. Four movers and a truck were required for the relocation, which successfully appeared on the day of the move. Office movers transported everything quickly, nevertheless without the rush. I didn’t assume that all furniture pieces will be received so fast.

I am very satisfied with their work.They were punctual. They work fast, very careful, and very professional.

My heavy piano was transported within a few hours, taking into account the time for descending it from the second floor and lifting it to the fifth floor using the freight elevator. The price at first seemed to be a bit high, but after calling other piano moving companies in Ottawa, I’ve realized that it was no more expensive than others, even a bit cheaper.

Homeowner Toronto

Outstanding small moves service. The company exceeded my high expectations! The moving crew members were friendly, efficient, proficient and caring, and worked as a cohesive team.

Nancy Powell

Hercules assisted me in moving antique furniture from Storage Toronto to a new home. Igor who arranged the move for me was prompt in returning calls and updating me on timing for pickup and delivery. The drivers both in picking up and delivering were punctual despite bad weather conditions. The employees were very courteous and helpful. All furniture was carefully wrapped and reassembled on delivery. I would not hesitate to recommend Hercules to anyone for a complete move or for speciality moving.

Miss Jolie

Great service, they took great care of all my parents belongings. and were very courteous. They certainly eased the move with the assembly and dis assembly of the furniture. The condo commented as well that we had great Toronto movers! Competitively priced, you get what you pay for!

The team was very efficient and professional. I would high recommend them for all of your moving needs! :)

We were looking for help moving between cities and Hercules provided us with stellar service. They were communicative with us and easy to reach leading up to the move to answer any questions. The Victoria movers arrived early and they were efficient, polite, and careful. Hercules took the stress out of the big move and I would recommend them to everyone and anyone! Well worth the money :)

Excellent service! All individuals I dealt with went above and beyond, including rearranging their schedule to accommodate the move. The team moving were so quick, clean and extremely careful to ensure no damage occurred to anything. Would recommend Hercules Moving in a heartbeat.

Laura Ellen

I am very happy with these movers. They showed up on time with polite, respectful and hard working people and got the job done right. These Guelph movers moved me out, stored my belongings for 3 weeks while I renovated my new place and moved me in today. I would use them again for sure. The ease of full service for both moving and storage was of great value to me.

I hired this company about month ago to move me into new house. 3 athletic looking guys arrived on-time and did a very good job. Whatever I did not finish packing -they did it for me. Then loaded all my staff into big truck and moved into new house. They were working nonstop. Everything was done very accurately within promised time. Very responsible and polite guys. If happens to move again I certainly will hire them again and of course will recommend this company to my friends. Greater job guys. Thanks a lot.


Hercules was great to work with. They arrived on time, had a team of very competent and friendly guys who treated our possessions with respect, including our piano. They were quick in disassembling and wrapping our furniture and seemed to have a lot of experience with Ikea stuff (which we have a lot of). They worked hard and kept us within the budget. I highly recommend them.
