Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ikea won’t ship any items to Australia, or anywhere else outside of the U.S. for that matter.
But there’s a fairly straightforward workaround to get any item sold on the Ikea online store delivered to Australia. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Australia
Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you just had a USA address that you could ship packages to? Then you could order from the USA Ikea online store until your heart’s content.
The great news is that there is an affordable way which doesn’t involve you buying a house!
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Ikea or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Ikea Online Store
Once MyUS receives your package from Ikea, they’ll ship it straight to Australia.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Australia.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
