In order to transport mortal remains within Russia, it is necessary to obtain a number of permits before applying to a carrier company. The main ones are a death certificate, a permit to transport from the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (previously such permits were issued by the Sanitary and Epidemiological Service ), as well as a certificate of  about the absence of any foreign objects inside the casket. At this, the absence of any of the necessary documents, is likely to result in a refusal to transport.

If the distance to the place of burial is less than 1000 kilometers, it is better to transport the deceased by motor vehicle. To do this, our specialized service provides a bus hearse or a specialized truck. If the distance exceeds 1000 kilometers, a train or plane will be suitable for transportation. At the same time, the transportation of the deceased by train is now less often, because special conditions must be created in the freight car for this purpose  (it is possible to transport the deceased only in it).

As for the plane, today it is one of the most optimal options for transportation of mortal remains. It should be noted that, regardless of the choice of transport, transportation of the deceased will be carried out in a zinc casket. In this case, it must be sealed, you should have a separate certification about this. After arrival at the place of burial, you can, with the help of specialists, put the body into an ordinary coffin or bury it in a zinc box (if the body is grossly disfigured, the second option is most often used).

When transporting mortal remains in certain directions, the presence of an accompanying person is mandatory. They can be both relatives of the deceased, and the third persons whose powers are properly registered. To call a specialist of our company, please call at: 8(495)784-11-33
