Why Us

Along with all the amazing features and benefits of our Mexican hammocks and products we like to back that up with what you deserve - 'great service'. But everyone says they offer 'great service' so what does that mean to us and for you? 

1. Friendly, prompt communication and email response. Email us during the day, and we will reply to you the same day - usually within 1-2 hours. We're even about on the weekends. We are happy to answer any queries you have, even if you just want a chat or some travel information about Mexico. We also have live chat available for any instant queries you may have while shopping.

2. Super quick dispatch and delivery. Order during the week before 1 pm and we'll have your purchase packaged and on the way to you that same day. Place it after 1 pm and we'll still try and get it out the same day out but more likely it'll be out the next day. With 1-2 working days delivery within the North Island and 1-3 working days to the South Island, you'll be relaxing (or gift giving) in no time!

3. Free delivery. There is nothing worse than not knowing what additional delivery costs you are going to be charged until you fill in all your delivery information, so we make it super easy. Our delivery cost is free and is via courier service! Any product order to any location within New Zealand receives free delivery. The only exception to this rule is for off-shore deliveries to Chatham and Stewart Island which may incur additional delivery charges. Please contact us to discuss. 

4. Great value. We are currently only an online store, but that is good for you as we are able to offer you a greater range of authentic Mexican products at great value prices without additional overheads inflating our prices. Check back for new products and colour ranges being added regularly.

5. Fair Trade. Through our Fair Trade Federation member supplier whom we've worked with for over 10 years, we employ many weavers in remote village areas of Yucatán, México that don't often have many work opportunities. We believe in Fair Trade principles by paying and rewarding our workers fairly for their skillful hammock weaving. This shows through in the high quality of hammocks they produce for us as the weavers are happy in their work. All materials and equipment are provided at no cost to our weavers and they are free to work to their own schedule and location.

6. Mexican hammock specialists. We are specialists in Mexican hammocks. We sell only authentic hand-woven Mexican hammocks and are able to provide you with expert advice and experience - we have all the information you may need.

7. Free gift wrapping. If you are purchasing items* as a gift we can have it nicely wrapped and sent directly to the person whom the gift is for - free of charge, including a special note from you if you wish. *Excludes hammock stands and spreader bar hammocks.

8. Honesty and fairness. If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, simply return in as new condition and we'll fully refund you within the first 30 days. Feel you have purchased the wrong size or style of hammock, no problem simply return and we'll change it over for you. We also offer a limited 6-month guarantee on all our hammocks.

9. Specials and package deals. We offer a great range of specials and package deals, and are happy to make up a package for your requirements. To be kept up to date on new specials subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.  

10. We love our Mexican hammocks. Outside in the summer and in the bedroom or lounge over winter. We want you to experience the enjoyment and relaxation of owning your own Mexican hammock. That's why we'll go out of our way to make sure you are happy with the whole process. If for some reason you are not, please just let us know and we'll make it right for you. Each hammock also comes with a hammock instructions, use and care guide to ensure you know about and how to look after your hammock properly.
