Frequently Asked Questions

We have answered the most commonly asked question asked and placed the answers below. If your question is not here please send us an email via our contact form and we will answer in a timely manner.

What car seat is the safest for my child?

This depends on your vehicle, the age of the child. All Australian standards child restraints must comply with the mandatory requirements. What we look for is how the car seat fits your vehicle the child and your lifestyle.

When can my child turn forward facing?

The law requires your child to stay rear facing until the minimum legal age of six (6) months of age.  We recommend keeping your child rear facing until they fully outgrow the rear facing height markers on your restraint.

Can my 7 year old not use a booster now?

The minimum laws stipulate your child must be in a booster until 7 years of age.

What we find is most 7 year old do not fit the vehicle seat and seat belts correctly. The child will often put the seat belt behind their back or place both arms over the sash portion of the belt and kneel up to see out the windows. This is extremely dangerous and can cause serious harm if involved in a collision.

Do you offer a mobile service across Perth?

Yes! We are available to install car seat right across Perth.  Starting from Mandurah to Joondalup to Midland to Fremantle and every where in between.

Do you visit rural, regional & outback areas for talks and installations?

Yes! We regularly visit these areas on a pre-arranged, pre-booked day. We do have certain requirements for example minimum of 10 participants to make travelling from the City a viable option.

As much as we would love to offer FREE checks. We are not a non for profit so we cannot tap into government funding to assist with the high costs associated with organising and staffing these events.

 

Can you visit the hospital to install my babies car seat if I give birth before my due date?

Absolutely we can do that for you. If baby was born preterm we can assess whether baby will correctly fit your current seat correctly. If baby is found to be to small then we have premmie infant capsules for short term hire and we can bring one along to the appointment just in case it may be required.

What vehicle can fit three seat across the back?

This is a hard one to answer as every family is different. There are certain vehicles that suit better but this depends on what your financial position is or if you are just wanting new car seats to suit your current vehicle. We offer store consultations to discuss the car seats available and to demostrate what is required.

Can I take my car seat or capsule on the plane?

The best place to find out the answer to this is to contact the airline you are flying with and let them know what seats you have and what the require.

There are certain car seats that can be used on airlines but it is up to the pilot and cabin crew as to whether you can use the seat on the plane.

 

I'm moving to Australia from overseas can I use child's car seat in Australia?

I am currently going through family court and require a car seat installation certification. Can you provide on for me?

This can be traumatic for both parents so we are more than happy to assist you both with your installations.

We do though not get involved with your case and we will remain impartial and non-judgemental to your circumstances.

You are still responsible for the upkeep of the car seat fitment on the child ad in the car and we will ask you to sign an indemnity release as we do with all of our car seat installations.

Are you an authorised insured and accredited installer?

Absolutely! We wouldn’t have it any other way.

We choose to be WALGA Roadwise accredited for a additional layer of security for your reassurance.

We also hold $20 million in Public Liability, Workers Compensation insurance and we are covered by WA State Government Indemnity.

 

How long can I hire seat for? Do you have a minimum or maximum hire period?

Hires start from 3-7 days and can be hired for 3, 6, 12 months.

All hires are covered by a legally binding contract.

Our stock is replaced every 2 years unless involved in a collision or showing serious wear and tear which can not be repaired or replaced.
