A new service for harassed parents arriving at Dublin Airport has been launched by a Dublin couple with their own two small children.
The Stork Exchange is a new airport-based facility which rents everything from child car seats to buggies and other baby equipment to passengers arriving in Ireland on holiday.
The business was born out of a frustrating experience when Dubliner Olivia Typrowicz and her husband Bartek went abroad on holiday with their small daughter three years ago.
“The car we hired had the wrong size baby seat which made things very difficult for everybody,” said Olivia. “When we came home, we started to think there might be a business to hire this equipment to parents.”
“Initially we set up a buy and sell website for baby equipment, but this evolved – thankfully due to demand – into a baby and children's equipment hire.”
“Our market is parents with children under five. We get a lot of the Irish diaspora coming home on holiday and they’re using Nana and Granddad’s car and there is no baby equipment.”
The new Stork Exchange outlet at Dublin Airport is situated in Car Park Atrium in Terminal 1 on the same level as arriving passengers.
Said Olivia: “We’re also happy to supply to passengers travelling through Terminal 2. We can just take their bookings online and bring the equipment over to them when they arrive.”
All the equipment hired is top quality, branded and insured and is cleaned, serviced and safety checked before each hire. Equipment can be collected from the airport office or delivered and installed at the renter's chosen location be it a private residence or hotel.
