- Should I hire or buy a baby capsule?
Hiring a capsule is very economical as you only use it for a limited period of about 6 months. Hiring a capsule alleviates the problem of finding storage space once you no longer need it or between children. Every capsule hired out from Baby Capsules Hire and More is thoroughly cleaned and checked, and all parts are supplied with the capsule rental. Buying a baby capsule is really only cost effective if you plan on having 3 or more children.
- Do you install car seats?
Yes we offer free installation of hired child car restraints at our 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. We also fit your own child restraints and assist in solving problems/issues relating to positioning of children relative to age and types of restraints on the market.

- Can we use child restraints from overseas?
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.
