Plunket is phasing out our car seat rental and sales service nationally. This is expected to be completed by the end of 2016, and some of our car seat services are already closed. To check that a car seat service is open in your area, please contact your closest Plunket Car Seat Service.

How our car seat hire service works

Our car seat service representatives are trained child restraint technicians, which means they can give the best advice on the safe use of child restraints.

When you go to pick up your car seat, a bond is charged in addition to hirage, and this is refunded when the seat is returned on time and in good condition.

It is important to have the right seat for your child, so take your child along with you so you can make the best choice.

Other important factors:

  • Check the weight and height recommendations are correct for your child

  • Make sure the car seat fits well in your vehicle with the vehicle safety belt buckled through it correctly

  • Try another model of car seat if you can’t get a tight fit

Some community groups, health providers and retailers also hire car seats. Check online for alternative car seat service listings.
