The 5 Steps

Buying a pushchair is like buying a car and can be very dangerous if you don't give it a proper m.o.t.
  1. When you're looking into buying a new to you pushchair always be sure to look for obvious breakages, make sure you lift it up and down forward and backwards to see if any cracks appear.
  2. Look for wear to the wheels, like a car too close to the rims can mean either they're very close to the end game or can even fall off.
  3. Check the brakes, maybe put them on and give the pushchair a little tug.
  4. Put some weight into the pushchair, maybe even go for a test drive because you don't want to seem happy with it, take it home and put your little darling in the item for it to collapse. So be warned when trying your child in the item, that it may not be as it appears.
  5. Check the suspension isn't damaged give it a bounce and make sure springs pop back up, also check for rust as can be a sign of corrosion from rain etc.

Remember, just because it looks clean doesn't mean that it's in good condition, always take that extra 10 mins to check these things over as it could mean the difference between a happy mum and child,  to a child in the hospital with injuries.
I regularly buy pre loved, when I sell on I always make sure they've been cleaned and are in good health before advertising them. Please be aware, cheap doesn't always mean unhealthy, but on that matter also don't be too eager to take and run because it is cheap. Any legit seller won't mind showing you all the perks, letting you push and show you its wares, be wary of people that seem in a rush to sell and get you out the door.

Don't leave until you're satisfied!
