Q. Do you assemble cribs?
A. Yes. All of our cribs are full size portable cribs. They are installed prior to your arrival. If, under certain circumstances, we are unable to set-up the crib due to various factors involved in a turnover, they are VERY easy to set-up. There are no tools required or pieces to attach. It’s a simple step of opening up the crib, dropping down the attached base, and placing the mattress on top. Viola! They are also very light.
Q. Do you install car seats?
A. We cannot install your car seats for you. We will, however, include instructions for you to install them yourself. Should you require help, you can call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 1-888-327-4236 for the closest location of an NHTSA Inspection Station. The station should have a licensed technician to assist you with the car seat installation.
Q. How is the equipment cleaned?
A. We do a 2 step cleaning process: We dry steam all of our hard surfaces, then we use non-toxic cleaning products to wipe down and ensure they are 100% clean. All soft items are laundered in Baby Laundry Detergent.
Q. Do you offer retail items?
A. We want to make your trip as hassle free as possible so we will accommodate most needs that you have. Diapers, Wipes, Bottles and Bibs are available for purchase. If there is something you need please let us know and we will do all we can to meet your requests. A 25% courtesy fee and appropriate state tax will be added to the purchases.
