Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ikea won’t ship any items to Bahamas, 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 Bahamas. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Bahamas
To ship internationally, Ikea requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in Bahamas or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

Once MyUS receives your package from Ikea, they’ll ship it straight to Bahamas.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Bahamas.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
