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 Reverb and have the package shipped to Australia. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Reverb 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.
United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.
When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.
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 used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Reverb 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.

Once MyUS receives your package from Reverb, they’ll ship it straight to Australia.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Australia.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
