5 Reasons to Rent Baby Equipment on Your Next Family Vacation

5 Reasons to Rent Baby Equipment on Your Next Family VacationAs we are planning our next family vacation I just received this great guest post.  We are going to go on a cruise with our little girl we just are not sure where yet.  Maybe we will rent some stuff instead of lugging it around as we travel.  Enjoy!  

As a parent, one of the biggest challenges is being prepared.  Being prepared for baby to learn how to walk & crawl, being prepared for their first day of school, and being prepared when vacations or circumstances take you and your little ones away from their familiar home.  Here are some great advantages to consider when it comes to baby equipment rentals and tips on how these services can help you be prepared and keep baby comfortable…even far away from home.

Save Frustration!  While many people try to find a way to pack and take nearly their entire home with them so that baby will be comfortable while away, this really can be a huge hassle and headache.  The tremendous time and effort that it takes to pack everything up, the wear and tear on your baby’s items during packing and transport, and the space required when traveling with so much gear really adds up to more frustration than is necessary.  With baby equipment rental, getting what your baby needs is as simple as placing your rental reservation!

Save Money!  Often, people are deterred away from using baby equipment rental services because they have a wrong idea that the cost will be extremely expensive.  In actuality, baby equipment rental can save many people money!  How?  Not only are many of the rental fees very reasonable, but they also save money associated with luggage fees.  Additionally, for those who drive to their destination away from home, renting your baby equipment instead of transporting it may even save you gas expenses and allow you to drive a smaller, more economical vehicle.

Save Wear & Tear!  Do you have a nice, expensive stroller or car seat that you use for your child?  When traveling with baby equipment, many people become frustrated because airlines do not take care of their baby’s items, resulting in excessive wear, tear, and even damage.  Another factor to consider is the abuse that your child’s stroller will likely take when being used at theme parks, amusement locations, and other public areas.  With baby equipment rentals, your items stay safe, clean, and in nice condition at home instead of being subjected to unnecessary wear and tear.

Save Naptime!  Traveling with little ones can be exhausting…and not just for mom and dad!  Many times, parents miss a child’s naptime window because they spend too much time trying to transport & unload equipment and set it up at their destination.  This missed naptime usually leads to a child’s mood being sour, their schedule being interrupted, and a cranky and tired child during the evening or next day activities.  Many baby equipment rental companies can help you save naptime by having your child’s crib delivered and set up at your destination when you arrive, making it simple and easy for baby to take a much needed nap almost immediately!

Try New Things!  Have you been considering purchasing a double stroller for your infant and toddler?  Or maybe you have wondered how valuable a certain piece of baby equipment will be to your family?  Baby equipment rental is a great way to try out new items for baby without the large expense of purchase.  Simply contact a local baby equipment rental dealer, arrange to lease the baby item of your choice for a few days or weeks, and see what you think!
