All our hire items are carefully cleaned according to the manufacturer’s instructions and care is taken not to use astringent or allergenic cleaning products. Capsules, carseats and boosters etc are stripped off all fabrics and accessories on return, safety checked by a restraint fitter and all parts are hot washed, sundried and put back together by an accredited restraint fitter to ensure the integrity of the restraint.
One of our accredited child restraint fitters examines each returned capsule individually and are trained to recognise any signs the capsule could have been misused, in an accident or any attempt at repair or replacement of parts have been applied or replaced during the previous hire term. Any capsule with any recognised issue is destroyed on the spot by having the harness cut off completely with scissors and discarded.
Most babies will fit into their capsules until they are about 6 months of age. If your baby did outgrow their capsule please just notify the office and we will replace your capsule with an appropriate rear facing carseat for the remaining term of your hire free of charge.
