It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, Ll Bean doesn’t ship directly to Australia.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the Ll Bean store shipped to Australia, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the Ll Bean Online Store to Australia
To ship items from Ll Bean 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 Ll Bean.
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?
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
With so many Freight Forwarders out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best that we have found is called MyUS.
They are trustworthy, won’t break the bank and they do not charge any additional taxes, so you won’t be caught out by extra fees. This isn’t always the case with every Freight Forwarder.
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 Australia or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

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 Australia, 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.
