Stockport & South Manchester

My name is David O’Neill and I set up Out & About Carpets Stockport in 2012 from my home in Cheadle Hulme. Since then my business has grown thanks to the support of my existing customers and excellent reputation.

My wife Louise now works with me full time and we have moved to Hazel Grove.  I have a warehouse near the Pyramid in Stockport but I don’t have a shop or any retail premises.

“No Shop = Low Overheads = Savings for my customers”

I have more than 30 years experience in selling carpets and flooring – most of that time with Carpet World in Hazel Grove – but elsewhere for well-known retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers.  I know that choosing the right flooring can be difficult and so I felt there was a niche in the market to take flooring and carpets “Out & About” to the homes of my customers to help them make the decisions easier.

By offering a choose at home service it helps me to keep my overheads low and these savings are reflected in my prices.  Despite not having a shop I have as much choice as any other flooring or carpet shop in the Stockport and South Manchester region … but the difference is I bring carpet shop to you.

When I started my business I wanted to ensure my customers receive the best possible service.  My Trading Standards Approval was a huge milestone for the business and gives new customers extra confidence when ordering from ourselves.

We work with a large selection of carpet manufacturers and flooring wholesalers.  If there’s a specific product you are looking for please let me know.

Thanks once again David for your help and advice on some flooring yesterday, really helpful which is why we always use Out & About Carpets.

Dave and the fitters from out and about are absolutely fantastic, from start to finish the customer service was excellent, they were all extremely professional and friendly. 100% recommend them and I will be using them again.

David was great, he talked through all the different carpets and underlay and made recommendations on what we wanted. Didn’t try to upsell us, used our existing door plate and grippers and followed up once the carpet was fitted to make sure we were happy. Carpet looks great and we will definitely use again when needed.

Fantastic selection of carpets, underlay and vinyl. Very professional and personal service, highly recommend.
