We always get questions every season about our reasoning behind not accepting car seats. It is simple:
1) I don't know where the car seat has been. We found this pile of kids items beside a donation center. Do you see the car seat? It is a newer model, in great condition, except it had been baking in the heat & wet from rain for a few days.
2) I don't know if everything attached to the car seat is in proper working condition. A fellow sale owner in Florida had a car seat inspector come in & she found that several car seats did not have all the working parts or they were put together incorrectly.
3) The safety of children is more important to me than any money. Period.
