Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is the equipment sanitized?
A. Yes, hard surfaces are disinfected, then steam sanitized, dried and bagged so they remain dust free. Soft goods are laundered in dye-free, purfume-free organic detergent. All equipment is safety inspected to assure that any damaged, recalled or stained equipment is removed from our rental inventory.

Q. Does the equipment meet current safety standards?
A. Yes, all Rockabye Baby Rentals equipment is JPMA certified and meets all U.S. Federal Safety standards. Our cribs comply 16 CFR 1219 and 16 CFR 1220 safety standards for Cribs. We are registered with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to receive all product recall notices. If an item in our inventory is recalled, we immediately remove it from use permantently.

Q. Can delivery be made to our hotel prior to arrival and picked up after departure?
A. Yes, all items with the exception of cribs can be left at the bell desk under your name or left in your room. It is important you notify the hotel of your rental with Rockabye. Items should either be returned to the Bellman Station to hold for Rockabye pickup, or left in the guest room with permission of the hotel to hold for Rockabye's arrival. Cribs must not be moved by anyone other than Rockabye personnel. Hotel staff is NOT to disassemble or remove cribs from guest rooms. Renter is responsible for equipment until it is returned to Rockabye's possession, so please notify your hotel not to move equipment.

Q. Can I pick up the equipment myself?
A. We can arrange for self pickup and self return at most of our locations with the exception of cribs and toddler beds. Cribs & Toddler Beds are not available for self pickup or Airport delivery due to insurance restrictions.

A. Yes, just provide us with the name, address and telephone number of the person at the residence we are to delivery to.

Proper Child Restraint Recommendations

Infants
- Birth to at least 1 year old AND at least 20 pounds, Infant only or rear-facing convertible

- Birth to at least 1 year old More than 20 pounds and less than 35 pounds, Rear-facing convertible designed for heavier infants

Toddlers
- More than 1 year old, more than 20 pounds, up to approximately 40 pounds, Convertible or forward-facing seat with harness

Other Children
- More than 40 pounds, ages 4-8 unless 4'9" tall, Belt-positioning booster (high-back or no-back)

Always Make Sure
Harness straps are at, or below, shoulder level.
Harness straps should be at or above shoulder level-check manual.
Belt-positioning booster seats are used with lap\shoulder belt combination only.

Remember
Do not place infants in the front seat of vehicles with active air bags.
5-point harnesses provide the best protection
Make sure the lap belt portion fits low and tight to avoid abdominal injuries.

Children 12 and under are safest when properly restrained in the rear seat. Keep children rear-facing as long as possible. Always refer to the child safety seat instructions and vehicle manufacturer's instructions for weight and height limits, proper use and installation.

Q. Can you install carseats?
A. No. Due to liability and insurance restrictions Rockabye personnel cannot install car seats or assist with installation of car seats. Manufacturers Instructions are provided with each car seat and you can click on the "LATCH" logo on our website to review installation videos. You can also check for an Inspection Station by going to the SafeKids.org website.

Q. Can we be met at the Airport?
A. We offer Airport Meet & Greet service in most locations. Since each airport is designed differently and has different security rules, please provide us with your arrival/departure information and car rental information, if available, so we can best assist you with these arrangements. Do not leave equipment inside Rental Cars, take equipment to the Rental Counter to hold for Rockabye pickup.

Q. Are there reasons I should not use the Hotel's crib?
A. Some hotels claim to offer full-size cribs, but actually carry "hotel size or mini cribs". Due to changes in Crib regulations, many hotels only supply Pack N Play's which are not appropriate for children over 35-lbs. Before you commit to using a hotel's crib, be sure to ask about the size, the sheets and the condition. If you arrive and are unhappy with what the hotel has provided, give us a call and we will be happy to accommodate your needs.

Q. What if I am not satisfied with the condition of the equipment delivered?
A. We are confident you will be satisfied with the condition of the equipment. We conduct safety inspections and sanitize each piece of equipment before each rental. If you are not satisfied with the equipment, we are happy to replace it as soon as possible. We do not offer refunds after the rental has ended or exchanges for toys/items due to a childs lack of interest in the item.

Q. What are the rental terms?
A. Rental terms and conditions are clearly communicated on our website. We ask you to read them carefully, by completing a reservation with Rockabye Baby Rentals you agree to all the terms stated. You may read our complete Terms and Conditions by clicking this link.

Q. When will my credit card be charged?
A. You will be charged a non-refundable $20 Deposit at the time of reservation. The remainder of the order total will be processed 2 to 5 days prior to the date of delivery. Cancellations made more than 2-Days in advance of delivery are refunded minus the $20 non-refundable deposit. Cancellations within 48-hours of delivery date will be refunded 50% of the order total. Cancellations made after equipment has left our warehouse or no-show for self pick up will not be refunded. No refunds are provided for early termination of orders or for equipment which is not used. Partial refunds will be mailed in the form of a check unless payment has been made using PayPal. PayPal refunds will be made via PayPal.

Q. How far in advance should I make a reservation?
A. You should place your reservation as soon as you know your travel dates. If you will be traveling around a holiday or high travel period, we recommend reserving early, as we do sell out at peak seasons. All equipment is on a First Come/First Served basis, equipment is not confirmed until the completed rental agreement is received and payment information is on file. Availability of equipment is confirmed when a reservation is made.

Q. Why should I rent instead of traveling with my own equipment?
A. The reasons are many and varied - It is additional and often bulky luggage. Most Airlines now charge for extra luggage, especially with International flights. With increased security at Airports globally, increased luggage per person equals a longer check in process for all. Airlines can on occasion damage and loose your equipment in transit, claims are difficult to file and rarely are compensated in such instances. Traveling with a child is a much more comfortable and pleasurable experience, knowing all your baby's needs can be catered to at your final destination.
