Loadout currently fulfils its orders from 3 separate locations in the UK.

Each of these locations uses different shipping services which are categorised above.

As we incur shipping charges from each distribution location, we unfortunately have to pass each of these on to our customers in the form of multiple shipping charges however All orders over £100 have FREE shipping regardless of the shipping service category.

Multiple shipping charges only affect a small number of orders containing low-value products from different categories, however, we do apologise for any inconvenience caused by this logistical limitation.

As loadout grows we aim to have all products in one central location with one set of shipping service rates.

What happens on the day of delivery?

DPD or Royal Mail will notify you of your 1-hour time slot in the morning of your delivery. You will then be able to view live updates of your delivery through your tracking link. 

I'm not going to be home on my specified delivery day

Using your tracking number you will be able to select a safe place, request delivery to a neighbour or change your delivery day.

Nope, sorry!

For your security we aren't able to change the address your order is being sent to. Don't worry - If you're not home when a delivery is attempted, DPD or Royal Mail will deliver to your neighbour/safe place (if applicable) or they will leave a card advising you on how to arrange a re-delivery.

We currently ship internationally to the following EU countries:

Ireland, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland

Import duty/customs charges are solely the responsibility of the customer and you will be contacted once your order enters your country.
