We all know that flying can sometimes be stressful, especially with your kids. One local couple is trying to help make your vacation easier so you can actually enjoy it.
Billy and Stacie Frigic have a 17-month-old son who keeps them busy and they have another boy on the way. Last year, the couple decided to take Finnegan on a flight to Hilton Head for their first family trip together.
"I had anxiety about traveling with him big time," explains Stacie Frigic.
But luckily the couple didn't have to worry about packing the high chair and wagon, thanks to a children's rental equipment service called
. Stacie's sister-in-law told her about it.
"Everything was at the condo waiting for us," said Frigic. "Everything was clean, pretty much brand new. It just made it a whole lot less stressful."
The company has dozens of locations across the country. The Frigics loved it so much they decided to become Cleveland's Baby's Away franchise owners last fall. Since then, they've had several requests and deliveries every week. The holidays are the busiest times.
You can either call the company or go online to rent the products. Simply tell them the day and time you need them, and the items will be delivered to your location. They'll also set up the equipment for you, tear it down, and pick it up.
Crib and stroller rentals each cost $12 a day, $72 a week. Car seats run about $7 a day, $42 a week. Frigic says that's about $30 cheaper than most rental car companies.
The company says they also stay on top of any equipment recalls, which means peace of mind when you're traveling with little ones.
"You don't have to worry about anything. It's just stress free," says Frigic.
The company does not install car seats because of legal reasons.
