Expert Child Safety Seat Consultation and Shopping Service

Can’t figure out which car seat to buy?  There are so many options!  First baby and no idea where to start?  No Worries!  Car Seat Questions?  I am a nationally recognized child passenger safety expert and have been professionally certified for over 22 years.  I will answer your questions and find the best choices for your unique situation to keep your baby safe in the seat.

Up to a 30 minute one-on-one call by phone, zoom or facetime plus a follow-up email with personalized suggestions and to answer any additional questions or concerns.  This is NOT a virtual car seat installation service, but I am happy to discuss your questions on individual car seats, features, and demonstrate general use and safest practices, even if you are not looking to buy a new car seat.

  • $40 Non-refundable phone/video consultation fee via Venmo, Zelle/QuickPay or Paypal (Friends/Family Trusted Payment Only).
  • Check for seasonal specials & discounts. Any discounts will be quoted by email or text when making the appointment.
  • Provide Seatcheck with basic information on your vehicle(s), existing carseat(s), children, and budget/preferences (for shopping advice)
  • For advice or demonstrations, please let me know if you have specific questions or concerns about your car seat or vehicle prior to the appointment
  • For shopping inquiries, I narrow down the options of recommended car seats to those most likely to be easy to use and work best within your budget and offer an optional follow-up consultation within 7 days.  I will provide at least one recommended carseat or answer an additional question via email, text or Seatcheck’s facebook page
  • Extra fee may apply for additional children, carseats or vehicles
  • Nationwide, USA Only. If you are in the Chicago area, you get $10 off one car seat at an in-person installation/instruction appointment at Seatcheck within 30 days of your call

I can also provide consulting to meet you at a local baby store in the Chicago area to go over models and features of products on shelves.  Contact me for an hourly or fixed rate.

*No carseat is guaranteed to fit or work for any situation, so we recommend only purchasing carseats sold and shipped by Amazon (and not a 3rd party retailer), Target, Walmart, BuyBuyBaby or other stores with a free, no-hassle carseat return policy.  USA ONLY, sorry.
