Stroller Rentals in the Snow!

Temperatures in Alberta are getting a little more reasonable! Thank goodness.

Some of our visitors are travelling from areas of the world that don’t get the kind of snowy, wintery temperatures that we do here in Alberta.

If you have arrived and need a Stroller Rental to get you through this winter wonderland, consider the following options:

Our Valco Jogging stroller rentals are tough, robust strollers that can cut a path through the snow. Our Peg Perego UNO stroller comes with a winter boot to keep the little toes warm! We also have travel systems by Britax and Peg Perego, double strollers and light weight stroller rental options.

Stroller Rentals can be arranged in Edmonton & Calgary by visiting our website or calling us at 587-784-0212 or 403-510-2005

One Posh Stroller!

I love when Strollers get the ‘5 Star’ treatment! Maclaren has always been known as a high end stroller built with quality materials but now it is also ultra fashionable too.

BMW and Maclaren teamed up to create a stroller to match your luxury SUV. All the features that Maclaren is known for plus the addition of several BMW logos.

Not sure I’d pay more for a stroller to go with my SUV but you have to admit it looks pretty chic for a stroller!

Gate Checked Stroller Damage

I have often had customers call frantically from the Airport in need of a stroller rental for their vacation. These aren’t customers who simply arrived and realized they needed one. These are cuatomers who came off their airplane only to find the stroller that they checked is damaged.

On a recent Hawaii vacation, I joined this group of parents. We arrived at the Kauai airport only to find that the compact stroller we had gate checked had been so badly damaged that it would barely roll forward.

The airline was very good about taking pictures of the damage and starting a claim for us but it didn’t help with the fact that we were on Day 1 of a 7 day vacation with no stroller. Carrying around 28lbs of baby for a week was not my idea of a vaction.

I have always told customers that if they were going to gate check a stroller, they should fold it themselves to avoid an airline staff member trying to force an unfamiliar stroller closed. We did that, but couldn’t have forseen them forcefully opening the stroller on the bridge so it was ‘ready’ for us when we walked off the plane.

The claims process has just begun and I will attempt to get full reimbursement for the stroller when we get back to Calgary. Let me just say, an $18 stroller at Walmart is not my idea of a family friendly vacation.

Bob Strollers

We have been getting calls from travelling mama’s lately who love their Bob Strollers. They love them so much that they often travel with them.

A recent customer called to ask if our Peg Perego infant car seats were compatible with her favorite Bob Stroller.

I was happy to report that our Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP infant car seats are from 2008/2009 and are full compatible with the Bob Strollers.

My favorite travel system is the Peg Perego Aria stroller and Primo Viaggio car seat. We offer this Peg Perego travel system at the lowest price in Calgary $14/day or $60/week for both pieces.
