Is it a good idea to buy carpets online?
Find out how you can save time and money by going through Rocking Carpets and make even better choices
When you think about buying a carpet, do established furniture companies and traditional carpet stores automatically come to mind? You’re not alone. Because even if online shopping has become the norm in a lot of retail sectors, purchasing furniture and carpets online is still uncharted territory for many. But if you carefully consider all the aspects, there’s a whole host of factors that make buying online the better option.
6 reasons why
1. Selection, selection and more selection!
Marketing lingo has coined the phrase long tail, which refers to the almost unlimited selection of different products and product variations sold in small quantities (niche products). By contrast, the well-known big sellers generally have a clearly defined selection of products, but their sales are based on volume.
The fact that traditional furniture companies and carpet dealers tend to orient themselves towards best sellers and not long tail is easily understood. Just imagine how much money would be needed for showroom space alone, if the provider truly wanted the customer to see thousands of different products.
Rocking Carpets specialises in certain types of carpets and from these types, only offers original one-of-kind pieces for sale. With a selection of over 11,000 unique carpets, Rocking Carpets takes the long tail approach to the extreme. If we were to sew together all our oriental, Persian and kilim carpets, we would cover an area of approximately 55,000 square metres – the area covered by approximately eight football fields!
2. We promise that with us, you’ll find the needle in the haystack.
You’re probably wondering how you’ll be able to pick your favourite from among 11,000 one-of-a-kind carpets. You’re totally entitled to ask that question. To help you in your decision-making, Rocking Carpets’ online store provides you with a full range of filters and search criteria. In just a few clicks, you can display only those carpets you’re interested in. Are you looking for carpets in a certain colour? Are you shopping on a budget and don’t want to waste time looking through carpets that cost more than you’re able to pay? Does your new carpet have to be a certain size or shape? No problem: You can search under these criteria and more, or even combine different search criteria. And it’s so easy, you’ll be sure of find the carpet that’s right for you in no time!
3. Attractive prices thanks to a streamlined cost structure
Naturally, nothing beats the ambiance of a modern furniture store and the attractive shop window of the carpet dealer is a feast for the eyes! Despite this, Rocking Carpets has made a conscious decision to not go this route. We keep our costs down and our structure is driven purely by efficiency. That’s what makes our prices so attractive and our delivery times as short as possible. We don’t like to keep you waiting!
4. 14-day, obligation-free trial – totally risk-free!
So test therefore, who join forever. What Schiller refers to with “who”, Rocking Carpets refers to as “what”. The vintage carpets in our shop already have several years or even decades under their belt, and, thanks to their careful reconditioning by specialists, they will accompany you on your life journey for another eternity. That is why Rocking Carpets offers its customers a 100% money-back guarantee on all carpets. Give yourself two weeks with your carpet. If you are not fully satisfied, return the carpet within two weeks and we will fully refund you. It’s that easy.
5. We’re close by!
Yes, you’re right, geographic location doesn’t play a big role when it comes to online shopping, at least not at first glance. However, Rocking Carpets is a Swiss company that takes full responsibility if something goes wrong. Your carpet is sent to you from our Swiss facility and if you want to return your order, the order goes back to our Swiss address. You will receive no unexpected and unwelcome customs and tax bills and if you need help, we speak your language.
6. The internet is on your side!
