How far in advance should I make my reservation?
During Peak season (February, March, and April) it is recommended to place your order by January to take advantage of our discounts on delivery. This allows us to order more inventory and schedule more staff if needed. Some of our items take a month to arrive once ordered. Generally 2-3 weeks in advance is preferred. All equipment rentals are based upon availability. We strongly suggest booking your equipment at your earliest convenience to avoid any scheduling or availability conflicts.
What if I need my order delivered within 24 hours?
Please email us with your list of items letting us know you need something last minute in the subject area and provide the address for delivery, and the best contact number to reach you. We will email you back to finalize and confirm. During peak season or within 48 hours year round this is the best way to ensure you receive your order if it is last minute.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, VisitingBaby, Inc. accepts credit cards, as well as, cash or checks for payment. Sorry, at this
Time we do not accept foreign checks.
Can I add to my order or change my order later?
Yes, you may add items to your order any time, up until the day prior to your delivery assuming the item is available. Call or email us to make changes to your order. There is a 5.00-processing fee to substitute items and make changes to orders booked online and paid for already. If canceling items from your order, the cancellation policy below applies.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made two weeks prior to delivery date will be refunded 100% of the original order minus the cancellation fee of $50. Cancellations made more than 72 hours ahead of the delivery date may be given a 50% Credit of their order For a future rental and charged a $50 fee. After the 72 hour deadline before delivery date, no refunds are provided for cancellations.
We often purchase items to fill orders. The paperwork entailed for each order to fine tune all of the details is labor hours. Orders are usually prepared a week in advance-sanitized and inspected for functionality and cleanliness. Each toy box is hand packed and can sometimes take an hour. Credit card fees are charged already and paid. Staff is scheduled and items are ordered based on amount of orders placed. Delivery vehicles are packed the evening before. We turn down other clients based on lack of availability. So, we wish that we did not need to charge anything for cancellation but there are costs involved for us when you do so.
Delivery fees range from 0-100.00
How do I arrange for delivery?
Please select your preferred time and if there is a deadline where you must have your items before please write that in the comment section. Your preferred time is not guaranteed but it is used as a guide for us. Preference is given to the first person that placed their order for that day. All other orders going to their immediate vicinity will be delivered around their time. The second preference will go to the second person that ordered for that day in a different area. A circuit route is created and those farthest away that did not order first will more than likely be delivered between 2-5 or 5-8. In order to get a preferred delivery slot it is best to order ahead! If you are ordering very close to when you need your items and it is our peak season we strongly recommend that you order your items for the day before if you have a deadline.
How much is delivery and pick up? How does the delivery promotion work?

Can you deliver my rental equipment in the evening?
Sure. We can deliver your equipment in the evening and on weekends at no additional cost. There is an additional fee for late night and early morning deliveries and pickups as well as airport deliveries that are set for a specific time and delivery times set during high traffic.
Do you deliver to the Airport?
Yes, Visiting Baby does deliver equipment to airports. When arriving at the airport, we can meet you at a few different places depending on how you will be leaving the airport.
if family members or friends will be meeting us then we meet them at the cell phone lot and will need their email address to text them. .
If you are renting a car then we meet at the rental car garage usually in the exit lane. (Tampa location only-we meet you right before the exit of the rental car garage in the pull off lane.) This is located on the first floor of the garage right before you exit on to the street. There we can assist you with the installation of car seats, or help with any questions you may have with setting up the equipment when you get to you’re destination. When you drop your items off at the airport before leaving we meet you at the same place.
if you are taking a taxi, shuttle, uber or Lyft etc. You send us an email when you have landed and then you sent us another email once you have arrived at the pick up terminal where you would like the seats to be dropped off and let us know which terminal and which number sign you’re standing under or airline sign so we can find you when we are pulling up
Will you set up my rental crib and other equipment?
Absolutely – we don’t expect you to have to figure out how everything goes together after a long day of traveling. Crib assembly is included as well as set up of most other items as necessary. If we are leaving the items for you due to lack of access to the property then we will set them up as much as possible to make it easy for you and once you arrive please email us so that we can help you if you need assistance with the rest.We are unable to install your car seat for liability reasons; but we can assist you in putting it in as long as you understand you are responsible for making sure it is safe for your child and you will hold us harmless. We use Graco products so to prepare for their use, please look at the instructions online using the following link:
You can also check your area for the nearest car seat installation location. Some fire departments will provide this service.
Will I receive the exact item shown?
VisitingBaby carries only top quality products from highly respected manufacturers. In most cases
you will receive the exact model; but if availability is low and we purchase another item to fill your order you may receive an item of like kind and quality of the item pictured.
How do I pickup my own items? Can I just go to your location? Will someone be there to help me with my items?
Because we are a delivery business-we are all often out on deliveries so all items for pickup need to be scheduled in advance. We use a variety of drop locations and there will not be a staff member there to assist you. The charge of 5$ is for a driver to drop off your order and pick it back up at the pickup location. We recommend having your items delivered if you will need assistance.
We now have three pickup locations:
Tampa airport by shuttle
Old World Parkway
Directions for each of these pick up locations is different. Please write in the comments which location you would like to pick up From and we will send you the directions for your location
Because items have been stored for a day or maybe a week depending on the time of year-we prefer to sanitize at the time of order and check battery life etc. Ordering ahead allows for this as well.
