Carseat hire

Does anyone know how to go about hiring a baby carseat here in Geneva (or Vaud-Nyon region in particular)? My sister is coming over for a few weeks from Australia with her 7 month old son and we need to hire a carseat for him. 


Thanks for any advice,


Mia

If this is for continual use over a few weeks, not just for a ride from the airport home, I'd personally not go for a rental.  For safety, I'd buy new or I would asking around the parenting community or looking on WRS and other classifieds for a second-hand (used for one child only though) Maxi Cosi.  


Make sure that whatever you use is recent (less than 5-year-old) and legal for use in European cars (R44).

We also have three that are available free if you come and fetch, and return them. One is for the size  0-9 kgs, and the other two are for the 9-18kgs. We are grandparents so have to have these for our visiting family. Please let me know if you require them so that I can clean them to pristine standard!

Hi there,


I was looking up car seat hire as a friend is coming over for 6 days from London with her 1 year old (11kg so 2nd tier car seat required). We will be fine in town but are planning a small tripfor 2 days to Villars or Gruyere by car so will be really stuck then without a seat for her baby. I was wondering if you would know where I could hire one inexpensively or if you could help me out too!


Feels a little cheeky to ask like this, I hope you won't be put out.

Hi Nadja
Certainly we can help you out as we have helped others before you, all of whom were satisfied and very charming.
However, you would have to collect the car seat from our house in Evian-les-Bains in France and return it to the same place when you have finished using it [cleaned please].
We have two, so you can take your pick! At bottle of wine would be much appreciated in response but no payment needed,
Please call 0033450 384044 or email asap.
See you soon Sheila

Hi Sheila


 


Thank you so much for your prompt reply and generosity. Unfortunately fo rme it seems i left it too late this time as my friend is arriving before i'd have the time to come and collect your seat. 


 


Very kind offer from you indeed. I only wish i'd thought of looking earlier!


 


Best wishes

Hi all, 


I've seen this post and I really have the same problem when visiting some Friends in Divonne les Bains.


We have two children, one for whom our Friends there already have a car Seat and another little baby of 7 months that we will get one chair for the car.


Do you know where or how to hire one? Or if possible somebody could lend  us one with any compensation?


We plan to be there from the 2nd of December to the 11th!! Amazingggg!


Thank you in advance


Asier

Hi Asier,


So what you need is a chair for a 7 months old baby? Is that correct?

I would have thought that the best option is to post an ad. in the Classifieds.  That’s their purpose, so why not use it.

Hi Asier. 


The chair I have is for children from 2 kg so I think it should be good for your child. 


If you want to borrow it you'll just need to come pick it up in Champel. 


I sent you a private message with details.

You can borrow ours. BUT it has to be collected from Evian-les-Bains and returned there in the same clean condition. There is no charge. If you decide to take up the offer, please send a private EM
