What does buying a Canadian car seat mean to you?
The low US currency and the ability to travel to US, make it easy to consider a purchase from the US. We would like to take only a few minutes to explain to you some of the things you should consider. A car seat purchase is a substantial one and should be taken seriously.
First and foremost, be sure you know the regulations and legal responsibilities you have to respect. Transport Canada certifies each car seat that enters the country and the fines are hefty if you are caught with an uncertified seat. Don't believe us? Call the Alberta Children's Hospital and ask how many parents a month are coming through the car seat clinic to avoid paying the fine they received for an incorrectly installed car seat or illegal car seat!
By buying with a qualified, local business, you are ensuring local warranty, service and parts at the dealer's expense, not yours. You are also helping to enrich YOUR economy and Canada's business growth.
You are also choosing fewer travel miles between you and your purchase; vastly reducing carbon and green house gas emissions used in shipping products huge distances.
