Yeah, that is something I would let the buyer figure out and tell you where to drop it off.

In the process of doing one right now. It is a pain unless it is going to a major city like Moscow. Also very expensive figure a 275 pound motor in a crate at something in the 1200 to 1500 range. Needs to go to a business for the easiest shipping. If they are near a seaport you can probably get it there for 700 to 900 maybe.

I have shipped a motor there......
The only thing that kept me from cracking is John at Unishippers.
TJ, do yourself a huge favor and get ahold of John and he can get it done.

OK, lets bring this old thread out of the cobwebs... I have a guy from Russia that wants to buy my RXP. He contacted me from Ebay and has 844 100% positive feedbacks, and a lot of it is jet ski parts. He is confirmed to live in Russia, and seems very legit. Anybody ever shipped a ski to Russia? I will obviously be getting money up front... What advice do you guys have to offer? Is it even legal? What precautions should i take?
I have a way to crate the ski i think, but pictures of the methods that have been used to send them overseas that worked would be helpful.

The ski would need to be in a completely enclosed wooden crate. Make sure you have money up front not just a money order or promise of wire transfer. You would need to also know what seaport he is close to. I would recommend the buyer take coare of everything that way you are clear. Otherwise You could ship it from your place to the closest seaport in Russia and then the buyer arranges the rest of the transport. Of course the buyer PAYS for it all. I have shipped skis to Russia and as long as it is to a major city its really not a big deal. Where you get into challenges that can be very frustration and expensive is if it is to am outlying area.
If you want some pricing email me the origin address must be a business and the city in Russia with postal code.
