Christine in Ogunquit says

Thanks very much. The stroller and mattress were great and it was a pleasure dealing with you. It was invaluable to be able to rent a stroller and a crib mattress.

"Your delivery guys were patient and professional."

Hi Ben and the Ciao Baby team,

I want to thank you for the excellent service received at the delivery of our rentals on 5 July in Wells, Maine. Your delivery guys were patient and professional even though we ran a little late in arriving at our destination.

What a great service this is!!

"What a great service this is!! I was thinking I'd have to buy 'stuff' that I'll never really need again, and also have to rent a trailer or something to get it from here to there since I just have a normal-sized car."


- Sheila (Ogunquit)



Meredith in York Beach says

"Thanks for everything! Baby slept well!"

Child-Carrying Rental Backpacks - Not Just for Trails!

If you were at the Portsmouth Holiday Parade this past Saturday evening you might recognize these two good-lookin' fellas!  Little Ben is Ciao's newest customer, and he's also one of downtown Portsmouth's favorite toddlers. We're super proud to have had the opportunity to hook him up with one of our cozy Kelty Kids child-carrying backpacks so he could get a better view of the beautiful floats, the Portsmouth High School marching band, and of course, SANTA! It was one of the best holiday parades I've seen in Portsmouth in a long time!  Based on Ben's and his dad, Tom's, smiles, you'd never know it was absolutely FREEZING out!  :)

A note from Ben's mom, Emily:

[The backpack&91; was perfect!  Thank you so much. 
He fought going in it, but as soon as Tom was walking he loved it. We could still talk to him and he could see everything. Almost felt sorry for the kids in strollers. 

We agree--child-carrying backpacks are definitely not just for hiking.  They're PERFECT for parades!

Ciao Baby Customer Testimonial: "You were a lifesaver!"

The comments below are from an email we received from a wonderful customer to whom we delivered a bunch of rental baby gear last week, including a full-size rental crib, a high chair, a nursery center, a push tricycle, balance bike, a bin of toys, and a Joovy Cocoon X2 double stroller:

"Thank you so much, Abbie!  We will definitely think of Ciao Baby whenever we are traveling near you and would love to rent from you again!  :). Our girls were so intrigued by the Cocoon stroller and thought it was great!  They also had the best time with the bike and tricycle - we live right in Boston where it is hard to maneuver riding toys due to the brick sidewalks, so we spent a lot of time riding all over the neighborhood last week!  We all had so much fun.  :)

You were a lifesaver!  We rent baby gear multiple times a year, and yours was by far the nicest and cleanest!  :)  It worked out perfectly.  Thank you!!"


 

 

 



Notes From Ciao Baby Customers: Vacation Linen Rental Service & Rental Baby Gear

Every so often I love to post nice notes I receive from Ciao Baby customers.  We are very proud of our high-quality rental products (incl. the exceptional rental linen we provide), and our commitment to only offering equipment that is sparklingly clean and extremely safe.  Here are a couple of recent customer emails below. I'm always so grateful that folks take the time to send us a note right smack in the middle of their post-vacation acclimation!  :)

From a customer in Washington, DC, who rented both baby gear and linen for a family vacation at Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport, Maine:

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for excellent products and
service!!  We look forward to doing so again.

From a customer in Portsmouth, NH, who rented an extra large playard / pack'n play, high chair, and bin of age-appropriate toys for her little niece's visit to Portsmouth (She's referring to the book "Goodnight New Hampshire" that we buy from G. Willikers Toy Shop in downtown Portsmouth and include in our NH rental toy bins!):

We luv the high chair! And the NH baby book!
Thanks so much!



More Bins of Fun!

I just had to post this photo of another one of our age-appropriate toy bins because it's so cute!  This Bin of Fun is geared toward 12-14 month olds, and includes some new and exciting toys like a tugboat made 100% from recycled milk jugs, a wooden puzzle with chunky farm animal puzzle pieces that stand up on their own, and (my favorite!) a "Good Night Maine" board book specifically for our Vacationland customers.  Of course, the Italian-made Quercetti Quack & Flap walking ducky is back by popular demand.  We've gotta have at least one noisy toy in this Bin of Fun!  :D As always, we are proud to buy all of our toys locally at downtown Portsmouth's premier family-run toy store, G. Willikers! Toy Shop! We are so lucky to have such a special story in our community, and we really appreciate having brilliant toy experts help us pick out the most popular toys for each of our age-appropriate bins!

We are thrilled to deliver rental toys for kids to play with while on vacation at the southern Maine and NH seacoast! Don't lug all your regular toys on your beach vacation--we will bring a bin of fresh toys for your child directly to your vacation destination.  Then, when you get back home, your child's "old" toys will feel new again!

So Much STUFF To Pack...We Couldn't Fit Another Crumb!

Just received the email testimonial below from a lovely Ciao Baby customer from Boston.  I'm so grateful Rhonda took the time to write it--it definitely brightened up my rainy morning!

Hi Abbie... Just wanted to write a quick note of thanks! As you know my family:husband and 2 1/2 year old rented a house in Maine and used your company for a crib and a beach wagon! What a wonderful company you have! It was such a convenience for us. Honestly we had to pack so much "stuff" for a week that I don't think we could have fit even  a crumb more so we are very grateful for your company! 

For a week that was very trying, your company's professionalism, promptness and congeniality was the highlight! I appreciate the early unscheduled pick up! 

It was a pleasure to do business with you and hopefully my son will like the beach better next year and we will be calling on you again! (Although he didn't like be beach he loved his wagon!)

Thank you again! Have a wonderful summer!

Rhonda Doherty

Thank You For The Great Service...

I distinctly remember saying this exact same thing last summer, but I'll say it again!  GRANDPARENTS ARE THE BEST! I love delivering cribs and other child rental gear to grandparents because they are so excited for their grandkids to visit.  It reminds me of my mom and dad who are so blessed to have all 8 (and soon to be 9!) of their grandchildren living within a 6-mile radius of them.  I just received this sweet testimonial from a really nice couple in Durham, NH, following their visit with their granddaughters last week.

"I just want to thank you for the great service. Our 2 yr old grand daughter Molly loved the crib and slept very well.
We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends who may be in need of such equipment
Have a good summer
Thanks Again
Sue"
