HIRE KITS AVAILABILITY
We have LOTS of hire kits across our hire kit ranges however demand is incredibly high and keeps increasing. Our hire kits are normally fully booked up 6months in advance. Yes that's correct 6 months in advance! At the time of writing in July 19 many of our kits are now only available from Jan 2020 and Jan is filling FAST! To hopefully guarantee a kit is available for your hire period you should be aiming to order at the latest 12weeks pregnancy. The website will show when the next hire kit period is available, a date may show sooner than 6months but it's likely that there is only 1 or 2 kits left for that period and the date can suddenly jump by several months by just one new reservation being placed. We DO NOT accept hire kit orders for delivery AFTER baby has been born as from experience you just won't get enough wear out of them. We also aim to get them out before baby is born so you have time to learn how to use them. If the date available is after your due date please check our other hire kits instead or keep an eye on the page incase of cancellation although this is VERY rare. We understand it can make parents nervous buying anything before your 20 week scan. Please be reassured if for any reason you need to cancel your hire kit BEFORE it is dispatched it will be cancelled and refunded in FULL. Once hire kits are dispatched the hire fee will not be refunded in part or full in any circumstances other than in cases in stillbirth/SIDS.
The Sandys hire kits cost:
£85* hire fee + £100 deposit
On the return of the nappies the £100 deposit can either be refunded or used against a future order.
*IF you spend over £150 on other items with us you will also received an additional £30 credit from your hire fee.
The Nappy Lady Sandys XS Hire Kit contains:
- 20 Sandys XS. This should allow you to wash every day and half to two days from birth.
- 5 XS/Small Wraps
This is enough for one baby full time.
If you have Twins you should need to book 2 kits, they don't have to be the same type of kit. At time of booking add details on your order that you have two kits for twins so we can confirm the most appropriate date to book for you and we'll arrange for a 10% refund on your hire kit.
You'll also need to buy:
- Paper Liners if you'd like to use them. (Bambinex liners fit the best.)
- Nappy Bucket/Nappy Mesh to store the used ones in.
Even with buying these additional items the cost of using the Sandys will work out less than you'd spend on disposables!
The Sandys Hire Kit will probably not be brand new but will be in a good, clean, sanitised and hygenic condition, washed at every return by The Nappy Lady.
We expect that returned Sandys will have been used and washed according to our guidelines but not damaged. We do expect some wear and tear of course. On the return of the nappies please do not worry if they are stained as this is common with newborn/breastfed poo. Stains are easily removed by drying them on the line (or even a window ledge) in the sun for a day or two. If any nappies are returned beyond use, the deposit or part of it may not be refunded to cover the cost of a replacement nappy.
The Sandys XS newborn nappies are ideal for the early weeks when standard size 1 nappies just seem a bit too big on a tiny newborn.
Sandys XS officially fit from 6-12lbs . At a RRP price of 9.99 per nappy this makes buying Sandys XS a luxury most people can't justify for a nappy that will only last a few months. However i think everybody should have the option of using newborn nappies which is why we offer a hire service. They are more absrobent than muslins and require no folding. Motherease is a well know and trusted brand sold by The Nappy lady for over 15 years so you're getting a quality nappy The Sandys secure with poppers at the side. They are shaped nappies so they offer excellent containment and no folding required.
Once hire kits are dispatched the hire fee will not be refunded in part or full in any circumstances other than in cases in stillbirth/SIDS. The deposit will be refunded in full on safe return of the hire kit.
Extending the hire kit period.
Your hire kit period is for 3 calendar months from babies birth. If you need to extend your kit beyond 3 calendar months we will try to accomodate this depending on the hire date of the family after you but this can't be promised. If the hire kit is able to be extended this is an additional £20per calendar month. If the kit is returned late the extension fee will be automatically applied.
