Here’s what you do….
First of all, browse our information and catalogue pages to see if there are any carrier/s you’d particularly like to try. You can then reserve a carrier directly through our catalogue page, which you can collect (by appointment) at our Forest Hill, Crystal Palace or Lewisham venues.
You can collect and return pre-arranged carrier hires to the following venues, at the following times. Please return your carrier to the venue from which you hired it, unless we have previously agreed otherwise.
Forest Hill: Friday’s 11.30am-12.30pm
Tooting, SW16: Thursday’s 10am-6pm
Lewisham: Anytime via Parcel Box at door
Crystal Palace: Tuesday’s 10am-2pm.
Hire Period & Fee’s
The minimum hire period is 2 weeks, with hire costs from £5-£15. Deposits are not charged in advance at Forest Hill, Crystal Palace or Lewisham but, you must have a debit/credit card to hire & your card will be charged the replacement value of the carrier if it is damaged/lost/not returned.
You are welcome to extend the hire period on your carrier by e-mailing us (email@example.com). Costs of extension fee’s, late fee’s & further details can be found in our Term’s & Conditions.
If hiring from Tooting hire costs are £5-£15 depending on the value of the carrier borrowed. You’ll also need to leave a deposit of £25-150 per carrier borrowed to cover the replacement value of the carrier. We can take deposits by cash, credit/debit Card or Paypal payment; deposits are returned in full once the Library has received the carrier and instructions back in good order.
If you would like to collect a carrier from the Wear My Baby Boutique in Tooting, then go to our Arrange a Hire page and fill in your details and the details of what you’d like to borrow. We’ll get in touch to confirm availability of your preferred option and let you know when you can come to collect your hire.
If you need more help choosing what to borrow, want to be shown how to use the carrier you’d like to try out, or don’t know where to start; we’re always able to make suitable personalised suggestions for you if you come along to any of our advice sessions or workshops.
While you have the carrier, PLEASE DO contact us by email to ask any questions that you may have about what you’ve hired or to try to troubleshoot any problems with using it. We’d much rather iron out any issues while you’ve got the carrier, not after you’ve brought it back! Most of all, try to get as much use out of the carrier as possible so that you get the hang of it and can see how it’d fit into your lifestyle!
When your loan period is at an end, please return the carrier and any instructions and accessories by whatever date and method has been agreed. (Deposits are not charged in advance at Forest Hill, Crystal Palace or Lewisham venues but, your debit/credit card will be charged if the carrier is damaged/lost/not returned.)
