Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ikea won’t ship any items to Nigeria, 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 Nigeria. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Nigeria
To ship items from Ikea internationally, you’ll need a physical address located in the United States.
The United States address is where you’ll receive the items that you order from Ikea.
But wait one minute! How is it possible to have an address in the United States when you don’t live there, and neither do your relatives?
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from Ikea, or any United States company.
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.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Ikea store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Nigeria, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
