While I strongly believe in how much difference face to face help and support when trying out new slings and carriers can make. Sometimes, just occasionally, it's not needed. Sometimes you know exactly what you'd like to borrow and just want to hire directly.
Maybe you've already been to the library and didn't hire something you tried at the time and would like to now. Maybe you're already an experienced babywearer who is going on holiday and want to hire a lighter weight carrier or a toddler carrier for that trip. Or maybe you are really struggling to make a session, and want to try something a friend has recommended first before committing the time to come to a session or schedule a consultation.
Whatever the reason all carriers can be hired out, without coming to a session and you can arrange your hire directly through the website here. And you can add postage at check out if you'd like me to post the carrier to you (I will happily post anywhere in the UK), or you can come and collect from my home - "doorstep hire".
To arrange a doorstep hire, simply click "local collection" at check out when booking your hire and then use the comments box to let me know which day you'd like to collect. The system assumes post so only allows hires to start in 3 days time, but if you are collecting you will be welcome to collect early and please just let me know in the comments box if you'd like to do that and I will be in touch to confirm, send you my exact address and then the carrier will be waiting for you in my front porch (space between inner and outer front doors) to collect anytime that day.
It's that easy!
Then you simply enjoy your hire and return to my front porch at the end of your hire period!
Things to note, if your are considering if a doorstep collection;
- There is no additional charge for organising a door step collection, you pay only for your hire period.
- There is no opportunity to be shown how to use the carrier or to try it first. The sling will be in my front porch and I am often not present when doorstep hires are collected.
- If you would like to be shown how to use the carrier, or would like to try one or two different options and compare them before deciding which to hire please do consider booking a mini-consultation (£30 for upto 30 minutes one to one help and advice) or coming along to a sling library session instead.
- You are welcome to ask a couple of questions about suitability of a particular carrier for you personally and what else I might suggest when arranging your doorstep hire but please bear in mind that this is no subsitute for face to face help. Without seeing you and your little one in the carrier I have I can not be sure it will work for you, so I can only offer fairly generic advice and not truly tailored information. As such the doorstep hires works best for those who already have tried or know well what they are intending to hire.
