I hired a car seat for my 4 yr old when visiting the UK in July. Very efficient service and very easy to deal with.
Would use again & recommended to others.

Great first experience with The Baby Loft. We rented a double Out ‘n’ About nipper with 1 Moses basket. Excellent communication, the whole process was super smooth and the buggy was delivered in excellent condition.

We needed a twin stroller for our daughters that are 2 and 4 years old while visiting London because we were going to walk a lot and both won’t enjoy walking. We found this page and rented one and it was super!
Everything went well, the stroller was perfect for what we needed and served its purpose. The owner waited for us at the airport and got it immediately, the same happened when we had to travel back. The owner was there waiting and we gave her the stroller and continued with our journey.
Thank goodness for rentals! It has saved us a lot of hassle 🙂
Highly recommended 👍🏼

Jane was extremely quick in her response to all my questions. Delivery and pick-up were easy and smooth.
We rented 2 cribs and 2 car seats and all the items were clean and ready to use.
Will definitely use The Baby Loft again and highly recommend to anyone travelling with little kiddies.
Thank you for making it so easy!

Great service from Jane regarding a cot rental for my grandson on our recent visit from Canada.
Good pickup and. Drop off service at Heathrow from Steve the delivery guy.
Very seamless process and a decent piece of equipment which definitely served our needs perfectly.
Thanks for a good experience I love it when a plan comes together 🙂

I have used Baby Loft before and they were exceptionally good again this time. Jane and Steve go out of their way to help, whilst providing excellent service, updates along the way and delivery and collection when promised.
For anyone needing to hire baby equipment I highly recommend them. I shall definitely use them again.

I came to England for unfortunate circumstances as a relative of mine had passed away and I was dreading it as I travelled all the way from Australia alone with my 6-month-old son.
Thankfully I found the baby loft website just days before I was due to fly and with incredibly helpful staff (I dealt with Jane and Steve) they made it so much easier and less stressful.
They not only provided remarkable customer service but the car seat I hired was in great condition, easy to use and Steve even took the time to explain how to install it correctly as well as help me uninstall it from the car.
I cannot recommend this service enough and I will definitely be using it again when I come to visit my family in the UK in the future. Thanks again, Jane and Steve!

We were visiting my sister in London from Australia and needed a pram (buggy, pushchair) for our 18 months old.
The pram was delivered to my sister’s house the day before we arrived and was collected the day after we left, so convenient! Jane was so good to deal with, she answered our emails quickly and sorted out any issue we had quickly.
If we need any baby related things next time we travel, I’ll be going straight back to The Baby Loft!

We had family visiting us down south from Scotland for the weekend including my 14-month-old nephew.
We were in need of a baby car seat and after a quick google search I found The Baby Loft and I am so glad I did. The service from start to finish was exceptional. They work around you and are really great to deal with.
Steve kept me in the loop of when to expect him and even fitted the seat for me as I had no clue! They are very reasonably priced too. I would highly recommend this company and I will definitely be using them again. Thanks, Jane and Steve!

We needed a child’s car seat for just three days’ holiday in the UK, where a family reunion had been arranged.
Fortunately, I found BabyLoft and was able to arrange the delivery of the seat to our accommodation. At first, I had requested to take delivery at Gatwick but this was changed a couple of days before our departure – without any fuss, much to my relief.
The car seat appeared to be new and it was picked up as arranged from our accommodation. Our brief holiday was not complicated with having to find Baby Loft offices and there were no delays in our arrangements. It was money well spent.

What can I say – we had Norwegian guests arriving unexpectedly with two young children. Where, on a Thursday afternoon can you get two car seats at short notice – guests are arriving the following Tuesday?
I rang the Baby Loft, gave the children ages to ensure we got the right sized seats and on Monday two car seats were delivered and both were in pristine condition.
Frankly, you could not ask for better service – Jane at the office end of things was really helpful and Steve, who made the delivery and collection, kept in touch to say when he would be arriving.
I highly recommend Baby Loft and will be using them again.
by Derek on Mon 4th Feb 2019
The service is absolutely faultless from finding you on the web to getting confirmation that the seats had been returned.
My Aussie grand-kids don’t come very often so this was the perfect solution and I am delighted to recommend it.

Thanks to The Baby Loft excellent service and the nearly new equipment I hired over the Christmas period my grandson’s first visit to the UK from Australia made him safe and comfortable whilst travelling around.
Will definitely use this company again. Thank you.

I was really glad I stumbled across The Baby Loft. Coming from Australia, Jane was great at assisting me to ensure I had the right car seats for my kids.
The whole process was so easy. Steve met me at the airport at the car hire place, waited for me, and put the seats in very quickly. He met me again when I had booked to return them at a convenient time for me. The seats were clean and in good condition.
Very happy with the overall service and will definitely use them again!

I was so grateful for Jane’s flexibility when dropping off the baby gear at our Airbnb holiday let in Twickenham.
The items arrived on schedule and Jane helped us to assemble and dismantle the travel cot.
Thank you! We will definitely be using Baby Loft again on our next trip.

This is the third time that we have used The Baby Loft and, once again, they have offered an excellent service. Prompt response to our emails and quality car seats were provided.
They delivered to and picked up from my sister’s address ready for when we landed from overseas. It’s been a pleasure using your company again and we wouldn’t hesitate to use you in the future. Many thanks.

Wow, I thought it had only been a month since my last blog but oh my … 3 months have whizzed by. I am certain that the clock suddenly speeds up once you have children, and then again when you run your own business. I have a fear of losing track of my 30’s in a blur and worry that when I look back in years to come it will be like watching a film stuck on fast forward with scenes of endless running, whizzing and darting with no time to stop and marvel at how quickly the family are growing and life is passing by. (more…)
What an exciting couple of weeks. I personally have really enjoyed the Olympics albeit from the vantage point of my own living room on catch up TV. Due to the demands of the Baby Loft and the additional tourists visiting London we didn’t get to attend any actual Olympic events but our equipment certainly did helping us to get into the spirit and partake in the Olympic mania that has swept the country.
So after starting The Baby Loft two years ago I finally decided that it was high time for a well-deserved family holiday. After spending the last two years back & forth meeting families at the airport and not actually leaving the country myself it was definitely our time. So I booked a week away for us in Italy in the Tuscan hills. Not one to make life easy for myself I decided it would be good to also use the experience to again validate the Baby Equipment hire concept, so I decided to take my own buggy & car seat for Olivia. Ohhhh Myyyyyyy never again !!!
Travelling with little ones is a NIGHTMARE. Gone are the days when you stroll leisurely around duty-free killing time. (more…)
So after multiple failed attempts to sit down and start blogging, I have finally managed to grab an hour and just get on with it. So where to begin… well, I have promised myself that I will endeavour to write a new blog each week, the content of which even I am interested to see. It will basically involve how my life and life at the Baby Loft is evolving & unfolding. You see I currently have two babies in my life, both are roughly the same age there is Olivia my little girl who is almost 3 years old and there is The Baby Loft, my baby equipment hire business which is a tad younger at 2.5 years old. Both of which enhance & enrich my life in different ways of which I will share with you as we go along. (more…)
After spending the last 15 years in different retail roles – When does a mumpreneur decide enough is enough and it’s time to start her own business? Today I interview Denise Proctor who after returning from her maternity leave in 2010 was made redundant, a great motivation for her to start The Baby Loft she said.
by: Your Hidden Potential
Mum of two Denise Proctor started baby equipment rental service The Baby Loft in 2010 and expects to double its opening year’s turnover of £20,000 this year.
I was on maternity leave with my little girl, and it struck me that young kids need so much stuff but often only for short periods. When I went to mother and toddler groups, a mum might say “I wish I hadn’t bought this travel cot, I spent £1,000 on it and it’s not very practical”. Two weeks after going back to work I was made redundant, so I decided to set up a baby equipment rental service.
When I first chatted to Denise from The Baby Loft I was a little unsure about the idea of hiring baby items rather than buying them but I have been converted! Not only by Denise but my in-laws are travelling in the USA with a group of their grand-children and it has worked out cheaper and more efficient for them to have car seats delivered to the airport by a baby hire company rather than use the car hire company or carry three sets!
As most of you know I specialise in sourcing baby-friendly holiday accommodation but there are occasions when you have to stay somewhere without baby or toddler provisions and hiring could be the answer…

Have you ever climbed up into the loft only to discover your first child’s pushchair, high chair and so much more baby equipment than you ever remember buying! One mother had just that experience and turned it into a thriving business opportunity. Denise Proctor launched The Baby Loft -www.thebabyloft.co.uk over two years ago and the discovery in the attic has turned into a thriving business opportunity for Denise Proctor.
