Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Mcmaster Carr won’t ship any items to Australia, 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 Mcmaster Carr online store delivered to Australia. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Mcmaster Carr Online Store to Australia
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.
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
Sounds great, right? So which Freight Forwarder is the best one to go with?

Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Mcmaster Carr 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.
