When Americans buy real estate in the United States, they often get old personal belongings of previous owners together with a house, garage and land. Such things can be sold at auction. Antiques and rarities are often bought by residents of Russia. But due to the disconnection of Russian banks from the Swift system, the closure of borders, the unstable political situation and sanctions, the transactions between Americans and Russians are complicated. When Russians find ways to pay for goods, the question of delivery arises, because DHL, FedEx, TNT, UPS no longer work with Russia.
The aggregator of international courier service helps out with delivery from America to Russia, because the transport company Time Saving Machine is connected to its platform , which continues to send parcels and documents from the USA to Russia in 2023.
Details of parcel delivery with expensive goods from the USA to Russia
A Nashville citizen in the USA left an application on the website of the courier company Time Saving Machine in the summer of 2022. A man bought a house in America and found an old reel–to–reel tape recorder while clearing out the attic, and put it up for sale. The resident of the USA was contacted by a buyer from Russia who managed to pay for the goods in foreign currency. The question remained only in the delivery way, because DHL, FedEx, TNT, UPS refused to serve Russia and the client decided to try the method of transportation offered by TSM.
The manager of the courier firm confirmed that the logistic company continues to deliver parcels to Russia and asked the customer to provide the necessary information for the selection of the tariff:
- addresses of the sender and the recipient with postcodes;
- photo and description of the item;
- size and weight of the parcel;
- wishful time and terms of delivery;
- estimated value of cargo;
- necessity of additional service.
The selection of the tariff took 15 minutes and the TSM manager contacted the client in Whatsapp, where he informed the customer about two available options of transportation a rare reel–to–reel tape recorder from America to Russia:
- urgent delivery by air courier in 2–5 working days;
- standard courier delivery from hand to hand in 9–12 working days.
Each way of shipping includes the following service:
- support of parcel international shipment with antiques by a personal accompanied manager;
- help with preparation of documents for customs;
- package of goods in reliable tare;
- tracking the movement of parcel along the logistic route;
- delivery by courier from hand to hand according to the transportation contract that has legal force and serves as a guarantee of transportation from the courier service party.
The customer liked this offer, signed the contract and made 100% prepayment. On the next day the man gave 3 bags with parts of rare reel–to–reel tape recorder to the courier and after 9 working days the parcel was in Moscow in the recipient’s hands.
Questions that worried the customer while making an application for the delivery of parcel from the USA to Russia:
- How will the packaging take place?
The sender can pack the cargo by himself, because the manager gives him recommendations on how to do it. But packaging is also available in the office of a transport company, where logistics specialists make reliable packaging for rare goods. The tape recorder is wrapped in an air bubble wrap, placed in a strong container without touching the walls of the box, and the empty space is filled with foam. The top of the box is wrapped with transport tape and receives a sticker «fragile».
- What data is necessary for concluding a contract?
To conclude an individual contract , the customer needs to provide the manager passport data. To conclude a transportation agreement as a legal entity, the client needs to send the manager a company’s card with bank details.
- How to pay?
The team of the courier company practices online settlements with customers and 100% prepayment. The customer can pay by bank card in any currency of the world. The manager sends the details after the conclusion of the contract.
