Hi all,

This looks like a great deal. I was planning on just bringing DD's Maclaren (she will be 2, and it is our normal go-to strolłer). We have a Quest which reclines and has a little basket and sunshade (I think we have a raincover somewhere too). Any reason we should rent one of these city minis vs. just bringing along our stroller?

Thanks

I use clear ponchos from the dollar store all the time & they work great. Plus when it stops raining I can just pitch it into the trash and not have to worry about folding & transporting a wet cover.

I haven't received an email confirmation either, but I took your advice and got a screenshot of the confirmation page. $47 for a double stroller for 8 days!

ETA:
I spoke too soon. Just got an email confirmation.

Make sure to check your junk folder too for the confirmation email. I finally got it, but it was in my junk mail folder. Luckily I saw it.

Or you could just buy one and bring it with you. Find a PVC free one online such as Protect-a-bub (a lot safer for your child than a poncho if you plan on having them in it when you have to cover it), and then you aren't throwing away lots of plastic from a one time use and it would be sturdier.

Question Delivery of stroller???

Thanks for the information, I just reserved my double stroller for 7 days also. Here is my question though, I reserved mine without putting my credit card info. in so how do they get payment from me, I am guessing I need to be there for drop off and for pick up??? Anyone know??? Will they leave it with bell services???

They will contact you for payment. That information might also be in the confirmation email.

Received my confirmation e-mail

Yes you do receive a confirmation e-mail (Remember to check your junk folder just in case). The message in the e-mail I received is as follows;
Kindly provide us with your credit card number along with the expiration date, 3 days prior to your arrival, via the following link at our secure server

I hope this info. is helpful for others.

Shade and storage. We brought our Maclaren quest for use in airport and at night . But for hardcore park touring days, the City Mini was the bomb. HUGE sunshade. You can pull it down to where only their feet are showing. My super fair DD didn't get a sunburn at all and was protected from rain, too.

These strollers do not come with a parent console or cooler like some of the other off site companies, and some of the off site companies also deliver cases of water too. We decided to go with Kingdom Strollers because of that, but the Apple Strollers thing is a good deal if you don't care about those things.

I have decided to cancel my reservation. I cancelled because I really want the city elite. We rented from kingdom strollers ( the double elite) in August and were extremely happy. I decided to use them again. I did not want to downsize the stroller. Good luck everyone and thanks again op
