Travelling with a baby can be stressful. The good news is that you can lift that weight off your shoulder and have an enjoyable family vacation by renting baby gear.
One of the advantages of renting baby gear is that it’s less of a hassle. Whether you’re visiting a relative or renting a vacation property through Airbnb, wouldn’t it be great if you got there and found a changing table and crib in the bedroom, toys in the living room, and a high-chair at the dining area? That’s how it’s like with baby gear rental services.
Moreover, renting baby gear saves you quite some money. Nowadays, you can rent a number of items, including a play yard, a full-size crib, booster chair, high chair, baby warmer, stroller, and toys at a cost cheaper than flying them.
Comfort while travelling
Baby gear rental companies make it possible for you to enjoy all the comforts you enjoy at home. You have the option of renting large items, such as a car seat, single/double stroller and a full-size commercial crib. You can also rent the small items, such as a canopy wagon, sleep machine, potty chair, step stool, and toys.
Travel becomes convenient when you rent baby gear. Some companies reach out to the owner of the vacation property you’re renting and setup all the baby gear before you arrive. Such companies may be working with trusted partners to deliver the baby gear, set them up and pick them up after use.
The cost of renting baby gear varies with the items you want and the vendor. In addition to the fee of renting the baby gear, you may also be charged delivery and setup fees, which vary with the time and effort required to deliver and setup the items. These fees are, however, all-inclusive, i.e. they are not charged per item.
You can save on the delivery and setup fee by picking up the baby gear from the crib rental Oahu service. Baby gear rental companies will not install your car seat for you because of liability. You have to install it yourself.
A few things you need to consider
Cleanliness – You want to rent baby care items from a company that offers clean, sanitized products. Crib mattresses and cribs should be cleaned with sanitizing agents. Food stuffs and other debris should also be removed from car seats and high chairs.
Safety. –The company should also do a safety check on baby gear after it is returned by customers. None of the company’s products should be on the CPSC recall list. All items should be in good working condition.
Brand – You want to rent baby gear from a company that offers items from well-established brands because they are committed to providing top quality.
Rental company policy on breakage/loss of items and dissatisfied customers – It is important to note that in the event that a product is damaged or lost while under your care, you will be held responsible for replacement. Before renting items, find out whether you can get a replacement or refund in case you are not satisfied with it.
