Beach Baby Rentals Responds to Graco Car Seat Recall

Statement from Beach Baby Rentals regarding the Graco Car Seat Recall

Press Release – February 13, 2014

Beach Baby Rentals, LLC, a Fort Myers Beach business that rents baby gear and other beach equipment to local vacationers, is making a major inventory change in response to the recall of certain car seats manufactured by Graco.  Effective immediately, Beach Baby Rentals will no longer be offering the Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Convertible Toddler car seat or the Graco SnugRide 30 Infant car seat as part of its baby and toddler offerings.  Instead, the Britax line of car seats will be offered exclusively to customers of Beach Baby Rentals.

Graco announced the recall on Tuesday, February 11, 2014.  In response, that same night Beach Baby Rentals contacted all current customers who were using our Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Toddler seat and offered to deliver a Britax seat as a replacement.  While these car seat swaps were an expensive undertaking for the business, Beach Baby Rentals felt it important that no customer have a possibly defective car seat in use.  We have procured additional Britax seats in order to ensure that no upcoming customers who had previously reserved a Graco car seat are adversely impacted by this massive recall of Graco seats.  As such, all future reservations of Graco seats will be fulfilled with the Britax models, which are highly rated for comfort and safety.

While we consider this recall unfortunate and an unexpected business expense, Graco has committed to replacing the faulty buckles with newly designed buckles.  If Beach Baby Rentals decides to begin renting the Graco seats in the future after this buckle, we will leave it up to our customers to choose which brand of car seat to rent.

Beach Baby Rentals provides rental with delivery and pickup of a wide range of top-notch baby gear and related equipment to Ft. Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Sanibel, and Captiva.  If any current or upcoming rental customers have any questions, they should contact Beth Freeman or Kathryn Friedman at 239-765-0032.
