how do I hire a baby capsule

Hiring a baby Capsule for the first couple of months; is a great help for many first time parents. When bubs is in the capsule, you can transfer bubs without disturbing them pram to the car and then inside. What is involved, how does the hire process work. At Travel Safe Capsule Hire in Melbourne we want to make the process easy for you.

Baby Capsule Installation

When you hire a Maxi Cosi Mico Ap capsule, you do not need to worry if you bought the correct seat, or if this capsule fit in my car, or will my partner be able to install the capsule.

At Travel Safe we take care of the baby capsule installation for you.

Do you Provide an Installation Certificate. Yes we provide a installation certificate with our registration/ accreditation number.

Please Note: When you require a later model Capsule, we recommend to hire the maxi cosi Mico Plus capsule. All Capsules are under 10 years of age and have never been involved in an accident.

Free Installation or D.I.Y. Installation

Some hire companies want you to install the capsule your self by watching online videos.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME with companies that do not provide Free installation with the capsule hire

This can be a very dangerous approach; as the chance for an error is very high; and places un-necessary stress on first time parents.

TravelSafe provide personal tuition and expert guidance; when a specialist baby capsule installation expert comes to your home and installs the baby capsule.

Free Delivery and Pickup

Many hire companies try to maximise their profits by offering free delivery; but you must return the capsule to the company at the end of the hire period.

One hire company has even gone to the extreme of making you pay for delivery ($25); and then you need to struggle with bubs; and post it back to the hire company.

This is just sheer laziness; by the hire company wanting to maximise profits; and not be involved with helping you on your parental journey.

Travel Safe capsule hire in Melbourne always offer Free delivery and pick up of the capsule (within our service area).

Travel safe are the only hire company who started as specialist baby car seat fitters in Melbourne. 

Personal Guidance

At Travel Safe we understand that people learn by two main methods. Some parents learn by watching a demonstration and others learn by a hands on approach. This is why; Travel Safe firstly demonstrate how the capsule works; and the lets you experience the capsule first hand followed by our experts walking you through the complete experience, and correcting any mis-understanding.

Hire Date and Duration

When Should I book the baby capsule – it is recommended that you book your baby capsule hire by week 34 at the latest

When Should I start the hire of my baby capsule – it is recommended that you start your baby capsule hire at least 2 weeks prior to your due date.

How long should I hire the Baby Capsule for. Many parents find that 4 or 6 months is the best hire period as bubs plus capsule becomes very heavy around 5 months.

Should you hire for 4 months you can extend; should you need the capsule for a longer period of time.

Isofix or Seat Belt Installation

Should I get an ISOFIX Capsule. NO….Isofix is NOT safer than a non-isofix capsule.

As an RTO trained and ACRI Accredited fitter, we provide complete capsule installation and demonstration of the capsule/carseat. If you still need to hire a isofix capsule Please consider the maxi cosi mico plus isofix capsule.
