Home Shipping from the United States

RusBid.com is a shipping forwarding service that allows foreign buyers to make purchases from the biggest online stores in the US and worldwide. The rates listed below are for foreign buyers only, and do not reflect our shipping charges for US customers.

Delivery of goods from our warehouse to your address is provided with the help of long-established postal companies, such as the United States Postal Service (USPS) and Meest. Other shipping carriers, such as FedEx, DHL and UPS, have higher rates or worse service compared to other preferred postal companies, although we can use the services of any postal, transport or courier company should our customers require it.

We can send your purchase either immediately or later, along with other goods, i.e. it can be stored until we consolidate the items and ship them as one large parcel. We pack your parcel, fill out all the required forms, pay postage, ship the parcel, and provide you with all information concerning your parcel.
