What is Rent The Stroller?
Welcome to Rent The Stroller by Tadpole! At Rent The Stroller, we provide access to a variety of best brand strollers on the market including UPPAbaby, Bugaboo, Babyzen, Nuna, and more. Whether you need a jogging stroller for the weekend, or a travel stroller for a quick trip, now you can rent the stroller you need, when you need it —at a fraction of the retail price.
How does renting work?
We know that every family is different and has different stroller needs so that's why we have different options. You can rent the stroller short-term, for specific dates starting from 1-3 days and up to a month. Or you can subscribe to our Unlimited Wheels stroller membership for an unlimited access to strollers.
How does Unlimited Wheels work?
By subscribing to our monthly stroller membership you will get to choose your first stroller at checkout and be able to swap it out for a different stroller every month, right from our website. Not all strollers will be available to swap at anytime but we will be updating our availability daily so you'll be able to check what's swap-ready before making the decision to drop off your current ride. Once you're ready to swap your ride, simply come by our location at 58 Clarendon Street in Boston or you can choose to have the stroller shipped to you instead. For fastest service and turnaround time we suggest you come in and swap at our Boston location.
What type of strollers do you rent?
We rent strollers for babies and kids at every stage in their life and for every occasion parents might need. Our strollers range from full-size, everyday stollers like the UPPAbaby Vista or a Bugaboo Fox to a travel-friendly Babyzen Yoyo to a jogging oriented Thule Urban Glide. Whatever your occasion we've got the right ride.
What condition are the strollers in?
All our strollers start off brand new or in like-new condition which is if they were previously floor models that were displayed at our store, Tadpole. We spend a lot of time and take great care of all our rentable strollers and clean and service each stroller before and right after it is rented. We, at Tadpole, have been cleaning strollers in-house for years and have a handful of stroller experts that make all our rides look like new every time. Once the stroller is worn out and doesn't meet our high standards of looking fresh, we replace it with a new one.
Are there more pick-up locations?
Right now, we offer stroller pick up and drop offs at our retail location in Boston, at 58 Clarendon Street, Boston MA 02116.
When will my stroller arrive if I choose it to be shipped?
If you choose shipping please allow 2-7 business days for your order to be processed and delivered to you. Delivery speed will depend on your location and the distance from our store in Boston. Typically, East Coast delivery window is 1-3 business days, not accounting for any unforeseen delays. It is up to you to make sure you plan accordingly and order your stroller ahead of time for your upcoming trip or event. Once your order has shipped you will get an email with the tracking number where you can check on its exact arrival. Please note that all of our shipments require a signature at delivery so you will have to arrange somebody to sign for the package at its arrival.
