Did you know that if you own a Maxi Cosi car seat and have the misfortune of being in a road accident, Maxi Cosi will replace your seat free of charge?
Here's what they say about the Maxi Cosi car seat swap scheme:
We value and support our customers, and we understand that having a car accident and dealing with its aftermath can be incredibly stressful. That's why we came up with our Car Seat Swap Service. If your child car seat has been in an accident, you can't be sure that it's still safe. Even if you can't see any damage, it may not function properly.
We can take the Maxi-Cosi car seat that has been in the accident and replace it with a brand new one, so you can be confident that your child is safe. And we can get valuable information about how our car seats perform in collisions.
My car was once written off when another driver accidentally put her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake, driving into the driver's side of my vehicle. My kids were in the car at the time and although I sustained a minor injury, they were fortunately fine. But we stopped using the car seats immediately, just in case, since it's well-documented that a child's car seat may not be safe for use following a collision. Had I known about this scheme, I might have been tempted to replace my seats with Maxi-Cosi car seats.
If you've been in a car accident and wish to have your Maxi-Cosi car seat replaced, you can contact the Maxi-Cosi team here.
