Getting on the move with baby

One of the best things about holiday times are the visitors who come with it.

When family are coming from out of town and bringing infants or young children, those hosting them often feel obliged to buy items their young guests need, like portacots, highchairs and baby baths.

For families contemplating travelling with babies, the thought of having to juggle car seats, buggies and other infant paraphernalia, as well as the children themselves, often seems daunting and may well influence their decision to travel.

However, there’s no need to bring all that baby gear, nor to feel under pressure to purchase. You can simply hire it.

Baby On The Move specialise in the hire and sale of baby products. Their hire range is extensive and includes infant capsules, toddler seats and boosters, buggies, bassinets, cots, exersaucers, monitors, safety gates for doorways, and more. They stock well-known brands and ensure every item is well maintained and clean.

Two conveniently located and owner operated Christchurch stores offer an efficient customer-focused hire service. And regardless of whether you’re hiring for a few days or on a monthly basis, it can be arranged over the phone, by email or online. 

“We want to make it as easy and painless as possible for those wanting to hire short or long term,” says Baby On The Move Christchurch Central owner, Fiona Paskell. “We have many repeat customers who use our service every time they have young family members visiting. We pride ourselves on our ability to accommodate last minute hires; however, we definitely recommend booking well in advance for peak periods like Christmas, Easter and school holidays.”

Baby On The Move is committed to best practice standards with regards to child safety and the products they hire and sell. All staff have in-depth product knowledge and are happy to advise customers on their hire choice or on items purchased. 

Staff at both stores are certified NZ Transport Agency child restraint technicians. If you hire products, including car seats, they will be correctly chosen by an in-store technician to comply with the child’s age, weight or height requirements and will then be installed by the technician.

If you are collecting hirers from the airport, you can arrange to pick up the hire items in advance and have seats installed in your vehicle ready for the airport run.
