Hire for Baby is proud to say that we do hold public liability insurance for the hire of baby equipment and the installation of child car restraints. Due to the nature of our business, i.e. hiring baby equipment/installing car restraints, it is very expensive and extremely difficult to obtain liability coverage. However, due to the fact that we are the largest baby equipment hire service in the country, we were able to obtain this coverage. You should ask about this before hiring from any baby equipment company; most policies do not cover the hire of baby equipment.
The majority of our branches are able to offer free installation of hired child car restraints at Hire for Baby premises. Our managers are trained to provide the safest & most appropriate child restraint & installation as we believe that your child’s safety is of paramount importance. We also provide anchor fittings and/or extension straps as required – all at no extra cost. We also fit your own child restraints and assist in solving problems/issues relating to postioning of children relative to age and types of restraints on the market.
Recent law changes across a majority of states requires that children under 6 months must be rear facing, children from 6 months to 4 years must be in either a rear facing or forward facing child restraint that has an inbuilt harness, children over 4 and under 7 must in an approved restraint. Child restraints must be suitable for the child’s size and weight and properly fitted and adjusted. To find out more about specific state requirements we ask that you visit the state rta website for further information. All franchises are trained to understand the new laws and how they apply to you.
By law every child restraint sold in Australia must meet strict requirements, which are set out in Australian Standard AS/NZ1754. This covers materials, design, construction, performance, testing and labelling of child restraints. All restraints must carry the Australian Standard AS/NZ1754 sticker. Most overseas child restraints, including restraints from countries such as the UK and USA, do not comply with these Standards and cannot legally be used in Australia.
