Where are our Carpet Shops?

We don’t actually have any retail carpet shops in Stockport or Altrincham.  We offer a dedicated mobile, choose at home service.  This means that we bring all of our samples to you in your home.  Our registered business addresses in Hazel Grove and on Atlantic Street in Altrincham are purely our offices –

please don’t come to us – we will come to you.

Despite not having a shop we have as much choice as any other flooring or carpet shop in the Stockport and South Manchester region … but the difference is that we bring carpet shop to you.  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.

Do we fit the flooring for you?

Yes we absolutely do fit your new flooring for you.  Our service is fully inclusive of all materials required and professional fitting.  All of our carpet, vinyl, laminate and lvt flooring fitters are fully insured and well known to us.  The flooring fitters we use are self employed contractors so you will pay them separately for the work they complete but we will explain all of this to you during the appointment.

Why choose us?

Our Google and Facebook Reviews speak for themselves so if you reputation and reliability are a priority for you then check us out.

Customer Service has always been our priority and we want everyone to receive the best possible service.  Our ‘Trading Standards Approval’ was a huge milestone for the business and gives our new customers extra confidence when ordering.

We never demand payment upfront for your flooring.  A 50% deposit is taken at the time of booking and the final balance isn’t due until after your new flooring has been installed and you re happy with the completed job.

David O'Neill

Stockport & Didsbury Branch

Hi there.  My name is David O’Neill and I am the original business owner of Out & About Carpets.

I live in Hazel Grove with my wife Louise.  In this photo is Hurley our dog who unfortunately we lost in 2022.  I have 2 grown-up children and 2 grandsons.  I love watching football and also enjoy walking, spending time with my family and travelling.  Myself and Louise have been on numerous USA road trips and cruises.

Since the early 1990’s I have worked in the carpet industry.  My first flooring job was for Carpet World in Hazel Grove where I worked for over 20 years until Carpet Right took the store over.  Since then I have worked in a variety of roles within the flooring industry including wholesaler, manfacturer and other retail outlets.

Theo Stavrinides

Altrincham & Trafford Branch

Hi I’m Theo Stavrinides and I recently opened the Altrincham & Trafford branch of Out & About Carpets.

I live in Heald Green with my partner Caren and daughter Ivy.  I grew up in Cheadle Hulme and have many friends and family in the South Manchester area.  I was in the RAF for 11 years and was based at Brize Norton for most of that time.  I worked mostly in Logistics.  After being away for so long it’s great to be home.

In my spare time I enjoy meeting up and socialising with friends and taking trips with my family.

Louise O'Neill

Office & Administration

Hello everyone!  My name is Louise and I’m David’s wife.  I work mostly in our home office doing all of the administration, accounts, social media and website maintenance for the business.

We now live in Hazel Grove after living in Cheadle Hulme for 10 years.  I moved across to Timperley back in 2001 from the Chester and Wrexham area.  I worked mostly in air freight export roles until I started my own wedding stationery business in 2010.  I sold that back in 2019 and since then I’ve been working solely on Out & About Carpets.

I love travelling and spending time with my friends and family.  If I’m not working from home you’ll mostly likely find me in a coffee shop or the Brezo lounge on my laptop!

We used out and about carpets to carpet our living room a few months ago. We were really pleased with the quality of finish and installation. When we needed our hall stairs and landing carpeted we had no hesitation to ask Out and About back for the job. Very pleased again with the experience from start to finish.

From the outset, brilliant people to deal with. Friendly and professional throughout, no hard sell and no hidden extras or surprises. Happy to help save money where appropriate. Fitters were equally professional and careful to take the time to do a neat and tidy job throughout. Bathroom flooring, hall/ stairs/ landing and living room all completed same day. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this firm.

We got David out to give us a quote for two bedroom carpets a few weeks ago, we were trying to track down a carpet to match one which was already in the house and David helped us with this and with all the extra information too so everything was clear as to what we were getting and costs. On the day of the fitting the guys were really helpful and did a great job, we are really pleased. Overall, the service was excellent and extremely efficient, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Helen
