It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, Ups doesn’t ship directly to Christmas Island.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the Ups store shipped to Christmas Island, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the Ups Online Store to Christmas Island
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.
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Ups 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.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Ups Online Store
The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in Christmas Island.
With MyUS, your Ups order could be with you in no time!
