Private Seat Check.
(Scroll down for Fee Details)
A typical car seat check takes about 45 minutes to an hour for one seat, depending on the seat, your vehicle, whether children are present, how cooperative they are, and how many questions you may have. Note: there are never too many questions, and you should never be sorry about uncooperative children!!
At your appointment we will go over the features of your seat, how to install it, and how to make sure that your child is properly secured. It is best to have your child present, but it is not entirely necessary as long as we are able to establish some particular measurements before hand. Baby not here yet? Don't worry! I'll have Camille, the "Crazy car seat Baby" with me for you to practice proper "baby installation."
We'll also discuss next steps, future seats and general vehicle safety around kids. Most children will need some sort of child safety seat until they're 11 or 12 years old, so there's a good chance you'll be dealing with seats for a while.
My standard fee is $40 for one car seat (or one infant seat and an extra base in a second vehicle) and $10 for each additional seat. Future appointments are $20 for the first seat and $10 for any additional seats. If you have another person who will be transporting your child (babysitter, grandparent, etc) and you'd like them to learn how to install and use seats properly, I am happy to work with them as well. If that caregiver is present during your initial appointment, the $10 fee will cover their seats. If I schedule an appointment with them after your initial appointment, I charge a discounted rate of $30 for their first seat and $10 for each additional. First time appointments always take a bit longer due to their requiring more education time.
