Hopnswap’s rental community connects local parents and caregivers with traveling families in need of baby equipment.
Washington D.C., 2017-Jun-08 — /Travel PR News/ — An easier way to rent safe and affordable baby equipment has launched in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia just in time for summer vacation planning. Hopnswap, an online baby equipment rental marketplace, seeks to ease travel woes for families with young children. Families traveling to the D.C. Metro area in need of baby rental equipment are able to browse the collection of strollers, car seats, car seat bases, playards and booster seats, choose their desired equipment, chat with the equipment owner, reserve and pay online. All of the baby rental equipment is available for delivery.
Hopnswap’s family-to-family rental marketplace provides an opportunity for local baby equipment owners to list and rent the baby equipment they already own. All of the equipment on the site is owned and listed by local parents and all of the equipment is reviewed before posting and cross-checked with national product recall lists.
Home to more than 90,000 families with children under six years old, the Washington D.C. metro area welcomed a record 21.3 million total visitors in 2015, many of whom traveled with their infants and toddlers. Hopnswap is founded by Tahira Christmon, a Maryland based working wife and mom who quickly witnessed the challenges of traveling with a young child after taking her young family on a trip. After paying excess luggage fees to haul their baby equipment on the flight, she came up with the idea to create the family-to-family ecommerce community.
“Traveling with an infant or toddler can be challenging and stressful. While it’s particularly important during family travel to provide safe, reliable and comfortable environments for kids– it’s not always feasible to bring the playards, car seats, and strollers to make that possible,” said Christmon. “We are committed to creating a community that makes it easier for families to move about their lives by creating connections that help ease family travel while rewarding local parents and caretakers for being a good neighbor and sharing their baby equipment.”
Hopnswap is currently serving Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia travelers. Renters are able to browse the rental collection and chat with equipment owners for free. There is no charge to become an equipment owner or list your baby equipment. Visit Hopnswap.com to learn more.
