Hammock Buying Guide

About Us

Ottawa based Hammock Universe is Canada's original online Hammock store... We were the first to do this, and are proud of it.

During the summer of 2001, I was overcome by the need to unwind and find a calming oasis in my small corner of the world. And what better way to relax - or at least take a nap - than in a hammock. But my attempt to "buy locally" and purchase a high-quality hammock at a reasonable price turned into a surprisingly arduous quest. So, an idea was born ..... "Hammock Universe"

Fast forward to over a decade later .... we've grown from a one-man show to a premier online shopping destination for hammocks, hammock stands, hammocks with standshanging hammock chairs, hammock accessories & more. We've been doing this longer, and better, than anyone else.

The recipe has been simple:

* Be true to yourself - We specialize in hammocks, period. That means more choice for you, and more expertise from us. We can't be all things to all people so we stick to what we know and have excelled at for over a decade!

* Provide top-end products at reasonable prices - We are more than just business owners - we are relaxation aficionados. We take great pains to ensure every single item on our site is up to our standards. All of our products are solidly backed up by their guarantee.

* Go the extra mile - During a European vacation, I fondly recall listening to a clerk in a small chocolate boutique explain to me the intricacies of chocolate making for over an hour - even though his potential sale to me was minimal in volume. It was evident that the clerk was doing what he loved and his passion for his products provided me with a truly unique & enjoyable shopping "experience".

In the same way, we at strive to provide personalized service for each and every customer. Word of mouth is primordial for our business success and we thrive on surpassing our customers' expectations because your state of bliss is at stake! Our hundreds of glowing reviews are a testament to the importance we associate with customer satisfaction. Once a customer ... always a customer...

* Super-fast & FREE shipping - This speaks for itself. Relaxation should never be delayed. We ensure all orders are shipped out within 1 business day.

* Customer Privacy - One area where we don't relax is ensuring your privacy. As e-commerce evolves, continues to upgrade its online technologies to fully protect you, our customers. We won't share your personal information with anyone, for any reason, ever.

To all of you, from all of us - Thank you for choosing and Happy Hammock Hunting!
