Installation – Baby capsule hire

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. 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. Contrast this to the 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. The founder Anthony has installed over 16000 baby car seats / capsules since 2012.

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.
