Question: What if the I have a minor bump in the car whilst using the car seat(s)?
Answer: Child and baby safety is always our top priority. We always ask that you let us know should this happen so we may scrap/recycle the seat(s) involved.
This situation would NOT affect your deposit as it is so important that we are made aware. We would also look to replace the seat for the rest of your hire period free of charge to continue keeping your child safe.
Child car seat law:
From 18 September 2006, the regulations for child car seats changed. Parents are being urged to learn about the new regulations which make it compulsory for children under the age of 12 (or less than 135cms in height) to use child car seats and booster seats. See below for full details.*
*The main changes to the car seat regulations include:
•Children under the age of three must use an appropriate child restraint in the front of motor vehicles.
•Children under three cannot be carried in the rear of a motor vehicle unless they are in an appropriate child restraint.
•Children under the age of 11, but less than 135 cms (4ft 5in) in height, must use an appropriate child restraint when travelling in the front of motor vehicles.
•Children aged between three and 11 years of age, but less than 135 cms in height, must use an appropriate child restraint when travelling in the rear of motor vehicles, provided there is a seat belt in place to secure the child restraint.
•Children aged 12 or more, or those who are more than 135 cms tall, must wear an adult seat belt in the rear of a motor vehicle (or they can use an appropriate child restraint).
•The use of rear-facing child restraints where there is an active front air bag (unless the bag is designed not to cause injury to a child in a rear facing seat if it inflates) is prohibited.
•For children under the age of 14, it is the driver's responsibility to ensure they are wearing the correct child restraint or seat belt.
•There is a range of child restraints suitable for different weights, check that the correct seat is being used for the weight of the child and is fitted as instructed by the manufacturer.
