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 Saint Lucia. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Saint Lucia
To receive packages from the United States, you’re going to need to have an address based there.
Now, we’re assuming that you neither own a house there or do you have relatives living there, so how is this even possible?
Don’t worry, you’re not going to need to splash out on a property, there is a much cheaper solution.
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.
MyUS is one of the best freight forwarders available – and it’s our favorite.
Why do we think MyUS is the best? It’s because they’re reliable, don’t charge a bunch of taxes, and offer affordable rates.
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 Saint Lucia or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-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 Saint Lucia.
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.
