Keep calm and parent on with Hire for Baby

After moving to Busselton in 2016, husband and wife duo Jo and Brad McLean quickly realised there were limited places for local families and parents-to-be to shop for baby items within the region.

That's why they took over the Hire for Baby franchise for the South West region in 2017 and initially operated it as a mobile business.

They opened a retail store in November last year to offer a Buy for Baby service in addition to their Hire for Baby service.

"We wanted to provide South West families with a local destination where they could access quality products, service and professional advice at affordable prices, without having to drive to Perth," Jo said.

"We are the only baby store in WA and one of few around Australia to offer both hire and buy options all under one roof."

"This provides our customers with the choice to suit their individual budget and lifestyle."

"For example, a cost-effective option for new parents is to hire a baby capsule, bassinet and baby rocker for the first six months as these are items baby will only be in for a short time period."

"Whereas a pram, car seat and cot will be more cost effective to purchase given they will use them for the long run."

Health and safety are paramount to Jo and Brad's business.

"We have carefully selected brands which meet Australian safety standards and recommended by relevant associations such as SIDS, WALGA.

"We have a full-time qualified restraint fitter on site to provide professional service and advice regarding your child's car seat safety."

Being locally owned and family operated means the business can offer flexibility with their product range, services and pricing.

"We support local, putting money back into the community so that small business can survive and thrive, enabling more products and services to be offered to locals going forward."

"Brad is on the road wise committee for the South West region representing car seat safety."

"He is passionate about keeping our children safe."

"We also sponsor local events and enjoy teaming up with other local businesses in the region for special offers to the community."
