Are you confident that your child is travelling safely?

A recent safety blitz by Kidsafe Qld and Transurban revealed up to 90% of car seats are fitted incorrectly.

A correctly fitted car seat can reduce the risk of an injury in a road accident by up to 70% – so it is important to make sure your child’s car seat is professionally checked to keep your precious cargo safe on the road. 

Kidsafe Qld has partnered with Transurban to offer a FREE service so families can travel safely.

Already, more than 5000 children are safer on South East Queensland roads as the direct result of Kidsafe Qld’s free professional fittings and checks delivered through our partnership with Transurban.

Recognising the importance of families having access to our service, Transurban is continuing its support by funding free car seat fittings and checks over the next 12 months (Until 30 June 23).

Can anyone get a FREE child car seat fitting or check?

Yes! Thanks to Transurban’s support, Kidsafe Qld’s FREE child car seat fittings and checks are available to anyone that books. Appointments are available Logan Central Plaza Shopping Centre, Grand Plaza Browns Plains, Stafford City Shopping Centre & Forest Lake Shopping Centre.  Bookings are essential and released two weeks prior to scheduled dates.

Alternatively, Kidsafe Qld does offer fee-for-service appointments so that you can have your child’s car seat installed, moved or checked by one of our professional Type 1 fitters at our Stafford or Mater Hospital Sites.

I have a growing family. How do I fit everyone in the car?
As soon as the second baby comes along, child car seats get tricky. Is your first-born ready to be moved on to a forward-facing seat or would it be safest to keep them both rear-facing. For total peace of mind, book a free appointment and get some expert advice from Kidsafe Queensland, the injury prevention specialists.

Help! I don’t know which car seat I need.
With more than 40 years experience in fitting car seats, Kidsafe Qld has all the answers you need. We sell only our most recommended, quality child car seats. When you buy from us, we can also fit it for free.

I bought my car seat elsewhere. Will Kidsafe still fit it?
