Renting a carseat
I have some friends coming from England to stay for a few weeks,
and am wondering if there might be somewhere to rent a car seat
for the time they're here. Anybody know?
Try babiesaway.com. There are ''locations'' in major metro areas around the
country and they rent all kinds of baby items (car seats, cribs, toys, etc) for
reasonable rates. They drop it off (and set up if required) at your house or
hotel and them come pick it up when you are done. We've used them in
Hawaii, Texas, etc. and it's been great.
I haven't heard of any rental places, but what I do when I visit other cities in the
don't want to bring all the big stuff is buy what I need at a resale shop there and
re-sell it back to them before I leave. (Pay their full price and get about 1/2 back
cash or trade.) You could probably do the same for your friends. It winds up being
about the same as a rental, I would think.
Resale shops instead of hauling...
If your friends are only visiting you, why not have them bring
their own carseat? They may benefit from having it on the
plane as well.
Otherwise, a friend may have an extra to loan you. Or, you can
likely find a relatively inexpensive one at Target or a used
toy store or on the UCB marketplace!
A friend needs to rent 2 car seats for out of town guests. Any
suggestions and recommended places that might rent car seats for
Cost wise it makes sense to go to one of the many used
children's stores in the area. They always have seats for $10
to $40. Good luck.
