Why Hire

Tuesday, May 02, 2017

OK, we all know that we like to have beautiful new things for our babies and especially when it is our first baby right!  At Anything Baby we have been in the hire business now for coming up 8 years and we have seen a whole range of mothers and families.  Attending the baby expo's annually where up to 17,000 people can walk through the door, shows us that hiring is not for everyone though why is that?  Is it the perception that if someone else's baby has used the capsule prior it is not clean?  Maybe some are worried that the capsule may have been in an accident or be too old or out of date?  All of these reasons are valid, there may be operators out there that do not have policy and procedure in place for the hire of their capsules.  As a mother and the founder of Anything Baby I have very early on travelled (the reason I started this business) with my own equipment.  The risk of  loss, damage, marks and scuffs etc on my prams and car seats is something I can do without.  If I travel to a location we have a branch I will always use our branch equipment for our children, that goes to say as I know the standards for which our franchisees maintain their equipment.   However, on the other side when travelling to a place for which we are not located I have hired stock that I guess was not as clean as I would have liked and then we as an industry wonder why so many people go and buy brand new!    Read More...
