With the holiday season in full swing, Plunket would like to remind families that every time a child travels in a car they need to be in a car seat or booster seat.
Plunket’s Car Seat Service exists to help families get access to child car restraints. If family or friends are going to be driving the kids around over the holidays Plunket can help with a short-term hire for a few days or weeks.
For a car seat to perform correctly in a crash and protect your child it needs to be installed correctly.
Plunket recommend getting expert assistance from a child restraint technician for a check to ensure that your child's car seat fits your vehicle and is installed correctly. Give your local car seat service a call and make a time to get the seat checked. They can also advise about the best car seat for your child’s age and weight, and one that is best suited to your car.
Child restraint technicians are available through Plunket Car Seat Services, and at a number of other hire outlets or retailers. It is a totally free service. It’s best to phone before coming to check availability.
