Around 4000 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 providing free car seat fittings and checks over the next 12 months with a focus on families who need it most.

Please have your Health Care Concession Card or charity referral on hand when you book for FREE Child Car Seat fittings and checks, available at Kidsafe Queensland’s Windsor, Logan & Mater Hospital sites.

 Bookings are essential. Concession cards or referrals must be shown at the appointment

Do you have a growing family?

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.

Have you just bought a new child car seat or need to move one to another car?

Kidsafe Queensland sells a range of quality child car seats, however if you have already purchased a child car seat or are just moving one to another vehicle, you can have it fitted for free* by Kidsafe Qld’s qualified Type 1 Child Car Restraint Fitters.

*Conditions apply: The free service is for Health Care Concession Card holders or charity referrals only

FAQs

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

Our focus is on helping families that need it most and so our free service is just for holders of Health Care Concession cards or those who have been referred by a charity. 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.

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

Yes, we fit all Australian Standard child car restraints – no matter where they have been purchased.
