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. Customers must notify Rockabye within 12-hours of delivery if an item is not satisfactory and allow us an opportunity to provide a suitable replacement. We do not offer refunds after the rental has begun or exchanges for toys/items due to a childs lack of interest in the item.

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.

A. Payment is due at the time of reservation. Equipment will not be reserved for an order until payment is received. 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 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.
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 approved and payment information is on file. Availability of equipment is confirmed when a reservation is made and reserved items are held for your rental order.
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 lose 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 delivered to your final destination.
