Car Safety Seat Installs
Absolute Baby travels throughout the Rockhampton, Gracemere and Yeppoon regions reducing the stress of busy families by offering an affordable mobile or on-site child car seat installation service.
Whether you’re expecting a newborn or moving your child into the next type of car seat, we can help ensure the child car safety seat is suited to your child and installed safely. More importantly, Absolute Baby’s CPST will ensure you feel comfortable and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to keep your child travelling safely long after the initial installation.
At an installation booking we will check over your child car safety seat or capsule, adjust it to fit your child and install it into your car following the manufacturer’s instructions, while talking you through each of the install requirements.
Then I’ll show you how to use your car safety seat, what to monitor, what to adjust and when including:
- Adjusting the harness as your child grows
- Correct use of the seat belt or ISOFIX
- Correct use of the top tether
- How to maintain the safety of your child in their seat every day
- Supply a ‘Daily & weekly checklist’ to maintain the install so you will leave confident of your child safety and know you can get in touch if you have any questions.
We can also talk all things car safety seat related like what ‘Best Practice’ means to your situation, safety considerations and tips to make your day easier, when to consider moving the child into a different safety seat and options available.
BONUS: Installs for newborns also include a complimentary on-site 6 week pp check and adjust, for peace of mind.

Car Safety Seat Checks
Are you sure your child’s car safety seat is fitted to your child and installed correctly? BE SURE!
An ill-fitting or misused car seat increases the likelihood of serious injury in the event of an accident. If you have installed your child’s car seat and feel a little unsure about it, you are not alone. Many child car safety seats which are installed by parents or carers are incorrectly installed or are being used incorrectly.
Absolute Baby offers inspections of pre-installed child car safety seat and will provide a written 19-point safety report to ensure the car seat is suited to your vehicle, fitted to your child and is installed safely, following the manufacturer’s instructions. This will give you peace of mind that your child is travelling safely in the car.
If our CPST identifies any concerns during an inspection service, we can:
- provide verbal advice on adjustments you can make to improve the fit or installation, or
- professionally install the restraint for a small fee (see Installations above).
I’ll also give you some tips and advice on how to maintain the safety of your child in their seat every day and you’ll leave with peace of mind and confidence.
