Plunket offers a range of car seat restraints across New Zealand, which are available to hire or buy.
The restraint must be a child restraint appropriate for the height and weight of the child, the vehicle safety belt on its own is not enough. Read more about car safety and which type of car seat restraint is best for your child.
It is strongly recommended that to keep babies and toddlers safe, they travel rear-facing until 2 years of age. Older children should stay in their forward-facing child restraint or booster seat until they outgrow it.
Our car seat service staff are trained child restraint technicians which means they have the knowledge to provide the best advice on the installation and use of child restraints.
Our car seat service is changing, and we will no longer rent or sell car seats by December 2016.
We plan to continue to educate and advocate for children’s safety in cars, and have also decided to focus more broadly on the prevention of unintentional injuries for children. We are currently undertaking a strategic reevaluation of our future injury prevention strategy and education and advocacy are key components of this.
Please keep an eye on our website for further information about Plunket’s Car Seat Service in your area, and remember that until announced, the service will still be operating as business as usual in your area.
Plunket's car seat service offers a variety of infant and child restraints and booster seats at affordable rental prices.
There are both short and long-term hire options available. A bond is charged in addition to rental, and this is refunded when the seat is returned in good condition and on time.
