CHICAGO, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — BabyQuip, Inc., the largest baby gear rental company in the US and Canada will now be offering longer term baby gear rentals through Inhabitr, the fastest growing online furniture rental company in the US. The initial launch is in the Washington, DC and Chicago metro areas with planned expansion in the coming months.
Baby gear is necessary but expensive. According to Mom Loves Best Baby Cost Calculator, nursery, feeding and bathing gear can easily exceed $3000. With this partnership, the companies will be the first at scale to rent baby furniture using a subscription model to parents who can rent the items for the period of time that they need it.
The BabyQuip offering on Inhabitr includes full size cribs, changing tables, baby monitors and more. A BabyQuip Quality Provider, an expert in baby gear, will set up the baby furniture and gear. In addition, for an additional concierge fee, they will meet with the parents, review how to use the gear, and help set up the nursery, especially valuable for first time parents.
“Families want to rent baby gear as it costs a lot of money to buy for a short period of time and also takes up a lot of storage space,” said Ankur Agrawal, Founder and CEO of Inhabitr, “BabyQuip brings a trusted brand and significant expertise in the baby gear category to Inhabitr’s customers. We are really excited to add the product offering to our customers.“
“Inhabitr is leading the industry with their innovative furniture rental services and their reach in over twelve cities,” said Fran Maier, Founder and CEO of BabyQuip. “We know families will love the convenience and service of having a full set of baby furniture and gear delivered and set up in their new homes.”
