Types of Strollers:
With so many options available it may be confusing to choose the right stroller for your specific needs. We’ve outlined the five main types of strollers below to help you make an informed decision on your rental. If you still have questions after reading below, please contact a Quality Provider in your destination city to get more detailed information.
This sturdy and durable stroller is the most common choice. This type of stroller is suitable for infants and toddlers making it a great option to rent while visiting family or while on vacation. You can mount an infant car seat (rear or front facing) and the seat reclines to a comfortable position for toddlers when it’s time for a nap. Full sized strollers come equipped with a tray table, cup holders, padded seats and an extendable canopy. They have a roomy underneath storage compartment to store travel essentials like snacks, a diaper bag and souvenirs! These strollers hold approximately 50 pounds or 23 kilograms* of adorable toddler weight.
If staying physically active is important to your daily routine, renting a jogging stroller can help keep you on schedule even while traveling. Jogging strollers have one swivel wheel in front and two wheels in back making maneuvering and rolling over uneven surfaces easier. They come in single and double options. Shock absorbers and superior suspension help little ones stay comfortable while moving at a fast pace. A built-in handbrake makes sudden stops possible. So, no excuse to skip your morning exercise routine whether it’s a quick jog or a long hike on the trails! Jogging strollers can be used in place of full sized strollers as they have all the same conveniences. Weight limits are typically around 50-75 pounds or 23-34 kilograms* depending on the model.
If you have twins or two small children, a double stroller is a great option to consider renting. They come in two formats: side-by-side and tandem, or one seat in front of the other. A side-by-side stroller is going to be wider since kids will be sitting next to each other. Depending on what sites you plan to see on your family vacation make sure this is an appropriate option. Kids will be able to easily interact with each other sitting side-by-side which may or may not be the best for your situation! A tandem stroller will be a better option if fitting through narrow spaces will be an issue. Children sit one in front of the other and the back seat is typically elevated so visibility is not lost. Some tandem options are also able to hold one or two car seats. Depending on format and model double strollers can hold 70-100 pounds or 32-45 kilograms*.
Lightweight strollers like umbrella strollers are easy to maneuver and can go with you just about anywhere. They fold down to a manageable size making them easy to travel with. Many lightweight strollers come equipped with useful features such as an expandable canopy, underneath storage space, seat recliner and a built-in cupholder or snack tray. Without a specific adaptor, umbrella strollers aren’t suitable for infants 6 months or younger and have a 40 pound, or 18 kilogram weight limit*.
Also called snap ‘n go strollers, these are essentially frames on wheels and are designed to hold just a car seat. They are convenient, lightweight and compact making them easy to toss in the back of a vehicle and perfect for traveling families who may be using forms of public transportation. Car seat strollers are not typically designed for toddler use but some full-feature models do exist. They can safely hold up to 35 pounds or 16 kilograms*.
This stroller option gives bigger children the option to sit in a seat when they need a break or stand on a secure platform while being pushed. They come in single and tandem options if more than one baby or child is in tow. They are often called stand-on strollers, can hold 90-125 pounds or 41-57 kilograms* and come with the same features as full-sized strollers and jogging strollers.
*All listed weights are approximate. Please refer to the stroller manufacturer, manual or website to determine exact weight limits for the stroller you choose to rent.
Clean, Safe & Insured Baby Equipment:
Quality Providers are required to complete extensive training on equipment safety before they begin renting baby gear. They are taught how to properly clean items to ensure every family is able to experience safe and spotless items. Unlike most baby gear rental companies, BabyQuip carries insurance covering your entire rental experience making us the safest choice for you and your little one.
Things to Consider When Renting a Stroller
Space Limitations - Predetermining how much space you will have to store a stroller when it’s not in use is smart planning! Whether it’s trunk space, closet space, garage space or storage space, consider your space limitations and rent accordingly.
Public Transportation - If you plan to live like a local and experience riding the Bart in San Francisco or the Subway in New York City you may want to consider having to lift your stroller up and down stairs or fit it through tight spaces, turnstiles and/or gates.
Activity Level - Consider your activity schedule. If a daily jog in the foothills is built into your vacation agenda, rent a stroller that can handle rough, uneven trails. If you have a jam-packed week filled with museum tours and sightseeing you may want something with ample storage.
Setup Time - Make sure you take the time to fully understand how to set up and fold down the stroller you rent. This will save time and sanity every time you need to use the stroller!
Size & Weight - Full sized strollers and jogging strollers can weigh up to 40 pounds or 18 kilograms. Make sure you can maneuver and easily lift the stroller you choose without hurting yourself.

Stroller Safety: Frequently Asked Questions
Are strollers cleaned before and after they are rented?
Yes! We require that all QPs meticulously clean all of their baby equipment, including strollers. Babies' immune systems are still developing and we understand that you as parents or grandparents rightfully expect clean, sanitized products. Strollers are inspected and cleaned after every pickup and then inspected and lightly cleaned again before the next delivery. We recommend that QPs use organic or non-toxic cleaners. Inquire with your QP for specific products used.
Is one stroller better than another?
All of our strollers are clean, safe and insured, and one stroller is not necessarily better than another. Each traveling family will participate in different activities and embark on different adventures so choose what’s right for your situation and not what everyone else is choosing. If you need a stroller for a busy weekend getaway an umbrella stroller might be the best choice. If you’re heading to the mountains for a relaxing extended vacation, an easily maneuverable jogging stroller might be optimal.
What are the stroller safety requirements in the US?
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission all strollers produced after September 10, 2015 must meet new Federal requirements for overall safety. BabyQuip QPs are aware of all current laws and safety standards and are required to strictly follow them. Feel free to quiz them! Child safety is very important to us.
