Our Carriers

Our library currently includes approximately 90 baby carriers, and we are adding new carriers all the time.  Hiring a carrier can be the perfect way to determine whether that carrier really works for your whole family before you buy.  Or maybe you’d like to borrow a carrier for an upcoming holiday?  Standard hire term is 2 weeks and we charge between £5 and £15 depending on the carrier type, however all carriers can be hired for up to 3 months costs are detailed below.  You can hire from any of our library sessions, private consults or directly from our doorstep.

To hire, we require you to fill in a hire form for each carrier you hire.  This form includes your full name, address and contact details – all personal information is collected only for the purpose of contacting you during/after your hire as required and is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulation 2018.  We also ask that you comply with our terms and conditions for hire which can be viewed here and a digital copy is supplied with each hire.
