Gone are the days when you can hop out of the saddle, tie your horse to a solid tree, and stride down Main Street to Jimmy’s General Hammock Store. But to the savvy shopper with a computing machine and a connection to that Internet thing, it’s easy to find a great hammock company online. The best part? You won’t even need to put on your pants!
Before you read on, please take a moment to congratulate yourself, because in our completely biased opinion you’ve already arrived at the best hammock company online. So what makes a good online hammock store? A few things:
Most important, of course, is the quality of the hammocks for sale. Hand-woven Mexican or Nicaraguan hammocks offer a soft all-natural open cotton weave that provides the ultimate in comfort.
You should also consider the warranty or guarantee provided by the hammock company: Will they provide a full refund for defects? Or even an unconditional, no-questions-asked guarantee? A good, honest store should avoid the fine print and make returns or refunds easy.
Also, since Jimmy—God rest his soul—passed on centuries ago, you’ll have to navigate the store yourself. Therefore, a hammock website should be simple and easy to navigate. Information on the construction, origin, benefits, warranty and ordering details should be simple to find and easy to read.
Lastly, if you’re truly committed to the admirable task of doing nothing, then don’t be in a rush to settle for the cheapest hammock you find. Find one you love, that looks great and is priced fair. Then, search their Facebook page for a discount code or free shipping. Free Shipping? You won’t even need to untie your horse
