The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Ikea and have the package shipped to Pakistan. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Pakistan
To receive international shipments from Ikea, you’ll need to have a physical U.S. address.
This address is where you’ll get the packages shipped to.
I’m sure the question you have now is, “how can I get a physical U.S. address if I don’t live there?”
Fear not, as we have an answer to that!
This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.
They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.
In our experience, the best Freight Forwarder is MyUS.
Why are they the best? Well, they charge no extra taxes, their rates are cheap, and they provide a very reliable service.
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
When you’re shopping online and choose to deliver to your allocated Freight Forwarder address, the delivery will be received by their team.
At this point, the Freight Forwarder will ship your package to your address in Pakistan.
If you have ordered multiple items from multiple US online stores, MyUS will package all of your orders together and send as one.
So, there you have it. You can enjoy the luxury of shopping on the Ikea US online store, without having to actually live there.
