Have you ever bought lighting online before? It’s probably one of those purchases you’ve usually made in person.
Over the past few months, our shopping habits have been forced to change. Because so many shops are closed, we’re ordering more products than ever over the internet.
Where lighting is concerned, that can be a tricky thing to do. Depending on what you’re looking for, lighting can be a pricey investment. It’s also very personal and unique to us – i.e. we need to see it for ourselves to be sure it’s right – so buying lighting online can seem a bit daunting if you’re not sure what you want.
At Oliver Lamps, we’re always focused on making your shopping experience as easy and hassle-free as possible. That’s why we were so excited to open our shop at the beginning of the year, so we could meet more of our customers face-to-face and it would be more convenient for everybody. But now that so many people are finding it safer to shop from home – even when there isn’t a lockdown happening – we want to make sure that your Oliver Lamps shopping experience is easy and hassle-free online too.
What should you consider when you’re ordering lighting online?
Are you shopping with a reliable supplier?
When you buy lighting from Oliver Lamps, you can be confident you’re purchasing from the very best. We’re a family business, and we’ve been selling top-quality lighting for 62 years. Our knowledge, expertise, and customer service is second-to-none. Also, unlike many online retailers who can be impossible to get hold of if you’ve got a problem or want to ask a question, our friendly team will always be here to deal with your enquiries during working hours (even if our shop is closed!)
Do the products come from a reliable manufacturer?
At Oliver Lamps, we only source our products from the very best manufacturers. For example, TCP Smart (the company who produce our smart lighting and smart tech products) are a globally renowned lighting industry leader. All the other manufacturers we work with – from bulbs to light fittings, lampshades to home furnishings – produce outstanding quality items too.
Can you order hassle-free?
Our website is easy to use, and adding items to your basket and purchasing them at checkout only takes a couple of clicks. You can pay via credit card, Paypal, or direct bank transfer, and even arrange for items to be sent to a different address. Buying online from Oliver Lamps is safe, secure, and transparent, and in the unlikely event you’re unhappy with your order, get in touch, and we’ll go the extra mile to sort it out for you.
Can you get friendly, helpful guidance and technical advice when you need it?
We offer such a wide range of LED lighting options that we’re always prepared for any question you’ll want to ask us! You’ll always be able to contact us during working hours, and in the rare instance there’s something we can’t answer immediately, we’ll get the answer for you as quickly as we can.
Is it easy to return or exchange lighting products you’ve purchased online?
We know that buying lighting online can be difficult. It’s easy to order the wrong product by mistake or realise it’s not the right product for you after it’s been delivered. If you’ve ever got an issue with a product you’ve bought from Oliver Lamps, get in touch, and we’ll fix it without any stress or unnecessary costs.
Do the products come with a genuine manufacturer’s warranty?
Yes, they do, and if any of our products fail under warranty, you’ll be able to repair or replace them without any hassle.
We realise that some LED lighting products can seem expensive, which occasionally discourages people from ordering them online. The good news is, you won’t only see immediate returns in energy efficiency and life expectancy when you buy LED bulbs from Oliver Lamps. If a bulb you’ve purchased from us happens to fail within thirty-six months from the purchase date, we’ll give you a replacement bulb completely free of charge and with no questions asked.
Also, that thirty-six months is the absolute minimum you’ll be covered for. Depending on the product, your warranty could extend for up to five years.
Does the supplier have an environmental policy?
If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs this year, you’ll already know that we do! At Oliver Lamps, we’re committed to being as green and planet-friendly as possible, which includes recycling packaging to reduce waste and, whenever possible, using a carbon-neutral delivery service to deliver our products to customers. We’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and limit our impact on the environment whilst still providing an efficient and professional service to all our customers.

This versatile TCP Smart Colour Changing Smart Bulb (https://www.oliverlamps.com/product/tcp-colour-changing-smart-gls-smart-bulb-bc/) can create the perfect ambience in any home with over 100 different colour changes. You can dim it, set it to a timer or routine, and control it remotely by using your voice or the TCP Smart app on your phone or tablet.

This product has a bayonet cap, but we’ve also got an Edison screw version available at the same sale price.
If you’re looking for a bulb that’s still traditional but a little bit more unusual, you can’t beat a candle lamp! This Integral Dimmable Filament Candle Lamp (https://www.oliverlamps.com/product/integral-dimmable-filament-candle-lamp-b15-sbc-3-5w/) has the style and versatility of a halogen bulb but, with an average lifespan of 15,000 hours, it lasts a lot longer and will save you a lot more money and energy. There’s an Edison screw version on sale too.
Finally, even though the nights are getting longer and darker, there’s no reason why the outside of your house still can’t look elegant and welcoming! Take a look at this ultra-cool Brushed Chrome Wall Lantern (https://www.oliverlamps.com/product/230v-ip23-e27-wall-lantern-brushed-chrome/) to find out what we mean!
Those are just a few of the essential lighting products we’ve got on sale right now, but please hurry because they won’t be on sale forever! Having said that, though, you’re always guaranteed to find a lighting bargain at Oliver Lamps!
