13 YEARS!

In May of 2019, baby equipment rental company, One Tiny Suitcase celebrates 13 years of successful business in Alberta. Launched in 2006, One Tiny Suitcase has come a long way since the humble beginnings in a NW Calgary basement. Started by Stacey Corbett, a mother of twins, this unique rental service has experienced notable growth, expanding to include an office in Edmonton in addition to our original Calgary location. In May 2018, Murray, Odette and Danielle became the new owners of this fabulous business. They have enjoyed meeting new and returning customers and look forward to the years to come.

We specialize in short term rentals of equipment for babies and families visiting Alberta. Find the baby gear you need with us! Our most popular items include Britax, Diono and Peg Perego car seats, for infants to toddlers to your big kids too. In addition, new Calgary mothers are pleased to be able to rent our hospital grade Medela Breast Pumps. They receive them where they need it, in a timely manner with no delivery charge.

As a proud member of Tourism Calgary, we have partnered with key members of the business community to provide rentals to charity events, the hospitality industry, community gatherings and visitors to world class events like the Calgary Stampede.

We continuously strives to serve our clients’ needs by offering the latest equipment rentals with a high level of service.  We appreciate the support that our customers and community partners have demonstrated over the years. They have played a big role in our growth and success. THANK YOU!

Christmas Crib Safety

Many of you will be travelling away from home this holiday season. Like me, your first concern is probably how to make sure everyone gets a good night’s sleep while on vacation! Getting my kids to sleep through the night at home was hard enough for the first few years, travelling upped my anxiety level just a bit more.

Crib safety

Whether you are staying at a hotel, renting a private vacation home or bunking in with grandma and grandpa….make sure baby’s bed meets the same standards for safety you use at home.

Here is a link from Health Canada that tells you what to look for when inspecting a crib.

Consumer Reports has a great article on tips for using a Hotel Crib or Pack n Play.

As an owner of a Baby Equipment Rental company, I can tell you that the pressure to ensure our equipment meets and exceeds current safety standards is high. Operated by parents for parents, I would recommend the services of my counterparts in other cities across the world. But as with everything, double check for yourself before you put your baby to bed!

Here is a link from Health Canada that tells you what to look for when inspecting a crib http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pubs/cons/cribs-lits_enfants-eng.php.  As you can see from an Inspection of Hotel cribs in one city in the US http://www.hotelchatter.com/story/2006/7/14/133223/752/hotels/Hotel_Cribs_Can_Be_Child_Deathtraps, not everyone is as diligent in making sure their products meet current safety standards.

I would like to say that things have changed but after a recent (2008) stay at a hotel in Banff, I found a pack n play with a gaping hole in the mesh inside our room ready to be used.
