How to Get Items from West Elm USA Delivered to South Africa
Receiving items from West Elm requires a physical United States postal address – you can’t get around that. This address is where West Elm will ship your packages to.
How do you go about getting a physical US address to use if you don’t live there?
To get a physical US-based address, you’ll need to use a Freight Forwarder. These are companies located in the US that give their customers US addresses to use for online orders.
They help with the international shipping process so you can receive your items with no hassle.
One of our favorite Freight Forwarding companies is MyUS.com.
MyUS.com will forward packages to South Africa, no matter which city you live in. Some of the places they ship to include:
Gauteng, North-West, Mpumalanga, Orange Free State, Northern Cape, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape.
We’ll tell you why we think they’re the best. Firstly, they don’t add any hidden fees, unlike other companies. This means they offer very low rates. And secondly, they provide an ultra-reliable service to their customers.
We’ve used them for years, and in that time, we’ve shipped many packages.
You can use your MyUS.com address when ordering from any US-based store, including West Elm.
MyUS will accept the order on your behalf. Once you’re ready for it to be shipped to South Africa, they’ll send it out.
As a bonus, if you order multiple items online, MyUS will combine them into one large shipment before sending it to you.
Freight Forwarding services allow you to buy things from the USA, despite living in another part of the world!
