We clean and safety check each piece of Baby Equipment Rental gear when it comes back.After this long weekend, two of our BRITAX Roundabout car seats were ready for retirement. The Government of Canada recommends car seats have an expiry date of 5 years from when they were manufactured. BRITAX itself uses an expiration date of 6 years.
We always follow the strictest safety guidelines and have retired these two car seats after 5 years of use. They still look like new but it’s the integrity of the plastic that renders them less safe after 5 years so we have removed them from our inventory.
