We understand some customers wish to pick up and drop off their rental items and we like to explain why we decided to become an online store.
Our main focus being full size cribs for babies to sleep well during your vacations with both baby and parents’ full rest.
These cribs are heavy and hard to fit in your mobiles. Some may have large vehicles to accommodate the size of the crib, however; carrying it in and out is not recommended by us unless it is absolutely necessary. We have had unpleasant experience with customers doing transfer between vacation homes and/or carrying from one town to the other. Bad incidents create awkward situations when needing to send invoice for replacement. Due to those past experience is the reason we do deliveries and pick-ups. For requiring transportation service to most, we decided to become solely an online store without a store front.
It is very beneficial for that reason plus advantages to maintenance and cost related, since we can offer reasonable pricing for premium products. We could do both to please both parties, however; that would double our costs with maintaining both the stores with a staff and the delivery truck, maintenance, another staff to drive around and insurance so on. It would double our planning and scheduling as well.
We try to stay as low as we can for our flat shipping (both ways of delivery and pick-up) at $15. Most companies charge double or triple. If they offer free shipping, their products are higher in rental rates. We try to stay fair and reasonable with our pricings and shipping.
Thank you for your understanding and if you must absolutely save $15. We would work with you and if Florida market is leaning towards customers wanting to do their own transportation -- we would consider it in the future, but for now we are an online store with delivery and pick-up service only. If you need car seat for specific plane arrival and departure times for the day, we work with you to get your car seat in time and pick up after your schedule.
We understand as parents and we try to help with maintaining your spending and would do and suggest anything to save you!
