Shipping at The Outpost is offered in the clearest and fastest way possible whilst still remaining cost effective. We only offer flat rate shipping, this means that no matter how many items you order your shipping cost will never increase!
All our shipping rates can be found in full here.
We aim to ship orders with all items in stock same day, when placed before the order cut off (UK 3pm / International 12pm).
Items which are not in stock typically take 4-14 days to arrive with us. Although this is a fairly broad time frame we do expect that majority of items to already be on order and arrive within 2 working days. Certain ranges can take a little longer due to importation, if you want to double check please drop us a message and we’ll be happy to check with our suppliers.
Orders will only ship once all items are in stock.

Shipping times vary from location to location as do costs. Please see below.
For all our UK shipping we use Royal Mail 24. This is usually a tracked service and has a near flawless record of delivering next day to the UK.* We also ship same day for in stock orders placed before 4pm. Some orders may ship on a 48 service, this is due to release date restrictions.
For this service we charge a flat rate of £3.95 for orders under £75. Orders of £75 or more are eligible for FREE shipping which should be automatically offered during checkout.
You can also opt to ‘collect in store’ which as it sounds enables you to place your order and collect it from our store whenever convenient. There is no charge for this service.
*Delivery times apply to mainland UK addresses only.
All of our European shipping is flat rate and covers orders up to 30kg in weight. Here are some examples of just how much that is;

– 545 paints…
…In short, a lot of stuff!
