All of our rentals are in like-new condition and undergo our cleaning and safety process detailed above. Think of it like a rental car– the car has been used before but looks and feels brand new because it is a new model and has been through all of the safety inspections and thoroughly detailed before you drive it.
Yes! We check-in with our customers via email 2-5 days before the end of their rental term to see how the item(s) are working for their family. You are able to extend your rental term (i.e. 1 more month, day, etc.) at this time. We also highly encourage you to let us know sooner via email if you are able to.
Unfortunately, we do not issue refunds at this time. When an item is paid for it is reserved for your family for the rental term and we are unable to serve another family. We understand that all babies are different and may not take to a particular item. This is another reason why we feel like renting an item is a good idea. You have the ability to try different options.
You will be charged retail value for a replacement if you are unable to locate it.
We only offer high-quality items to rent and if there is damage we are unable to serve another family. For any damaged or excessively dirty item, you will be charged the retail value to cover the cost of replacement.

- Vehicle was driven away from the scene
