Remote Hire

Want to try a sling?

We have hundreds of slings in the library, and with Remote Hire you can pick up and drop off slings with no human contact!

All are slings are £5 per fortnight to hire.

All slings are washed, dried, sealed and wait 72 hours before they go to a new hirer.

What do I do to hire a sling?

Step 1: Decide what you want to hire

If you know what you’re looking for, just browse our Inventory for what’s in stock. If you don’t know what you need, you might want to email Josie for a recommendation.

When emailing, make sure you include:

  • Age of your child(ren)
  • Your preference factors (such as: position you plan to carry your child eg front, back, hip, facing outwards; fastening method, features, how you want to use it, budget – if you’re planning to try with a hire and then purchase)
  • Any particular circumstances relating to you or your little one(s) that we should be aware of (such as disability or specific physiological needs)

Step 2: Make an account

Create your account on our MyTurn hiring system: choose your username and password and add your card details for payment. Then you’re free to hire whatever you want!

Step 3: Arrange your hire pick up

Email Josie to confirm what you want to hire and how long for and to arrange contactless collection from OX4.

You’ll get emailed information on how to renew your hire if you need to, and when your sling is due back (returns are contactless too using a drop off box in OX4.
