Car seat rental scheme
By law the driver of a vehicle is responsible for making sure children up until their seventh birthday are properly restrained by an approved child restraint. NZTA has more information on child seat law. A range of car seats are available for hire. The Plunket coordinator is a trained Child Restraint Technician and will happily show you how to correctly fit the car seat to ensure maximum protection for your child. All Plunket car seat prices are affordable and there are flexible payment options. ACC funded seats are available for some families if needed. Plunket also sells a range of brand new infant, child & booster seats as well as child safety items eg plug guards, cabinet locks and anchor bolt kits. To hire an infant seat (for use from birth to approx. 8 months) contact Megan McMurtrie 249 9553 as soon as possible so we can assure availability.
