Tako Laret Classic
3-7 weeks delivery to your door applies to all strollers sold through our store.
ORDER PROCESSING/SHIPPING DELAYS: our stroller suppliers have longer order processing times during the Summer vacations, Christmas/New Year, and Easter. At those times, the 3-7 weeks may be slightly longer by 1-2 weeks delay. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause!
Majority of strollers that we sell are made to order, which is the reason our suppliers need this time to prepare the stroller for shipment. Some models/colors are in stock in supplier's warehouse, and can be shipped out within 1-2 weeks from the time you order, which results in a faster delivery of just 3 weeks to your door. Others will need more time, and you can expect to receive your stroller no later than 6 weeks from the time you placed your order. Please plan your stroller delivery accordingly.
If you have a due date approaching soon, we'll be happy to find out which models and colors will be available sooner (in stock) if you have little time before your baby arrives. In these cases we can have the stroller delivered to you in as little as 2-3 weeks. Most of the time we'll be able to find a stroller that will fit your time frame, but we'll be limited on the model and color choices.
WHEN AND HOW WE SHIP:
All our strollers are shipped directly to your door by UPS from our suppliers in Europe (we do not ship strollers from our location in Canada). All deliveries are within 3-6 weeks (Summer & Christmas time may be longer) from the time you place your order, and are shipped as soon as possible depending on current availability.
Important note for CANADIAN customers - taxes will be charged at the time of UPS delivery, as we do not charge you taxes at the time of purchase. More details below.
TRACKING YOUR SHIPMENT:
Once your order ships, you will be receiving an email from Allekurier shipping company notifying you of your DPD at first, and then followed by UPS tracking details (see the diagram above). We do our best to update this tracking number on your order.
Once you check the UPS website www.ups.com for your tracking details, you will notice this stroller is coming from "MED SERWIS BENEDYKT STASZEWSKI", it's not going to be listed as your stroller manufacturer or our name. This is the registered name of the warehouse at #6 step on the diagram above, and this is where the UPS tracking number is being generated.
WHERE WE SHIP
- Canada - all Canadian destinations (excluding Yukon and NWT)
- USA - all continental USA destinations, excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and all other territories that are not on the mainland USA.
- Central & South America, South Africa, Middle East, and Australia/New Zealand, as indicated in the shipping zones on each product page.
Although most of our shipments arrive on time, we are not responsible for any possible shipping delays (caused by supplier, shipping carrier and/or customs office), as this is beyond our control.
Sometimes the strollers will arrive in one package, and sometimes in 2 packages, so please do not be alarmed if you receive only part of your stroller, the second one will follow shortly afterwards. You will be provided tracking numbers for your packages.

LOST, DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED MERCHANDISE
If your order arrives and there is a shipping or manufacturing defect, product mistake, or your order got lost during delivery, please contact us immediately along with photos of your damages. Please include your order number and contact information.
Please note that in all cases, images/videos of the damages are required. This is necessary for our records, the manufacturer's and the shipping carrier if an item was damaged in transit. Depending on the product and amount of damage or defect, a replacement part or a brand new item will be sent to you as soon as possible. If your item was lost during shipment, we will either replace the lost item, or give you back a full refund - depending on the best course of action for you.
Depending on the damage, we will take the appropriate steps. Please note that Stroller Boutique DOES NOT offer in-store warranty of products sold. All warranty is provided and covered directly by the manufacturer, and we are not responsible for the length of time it takes for your claim to be processed with the manufacturer. We do act on your behalf, and we do make sure that your claim is processed, but the final resolution will be up to the manufacturer.
Please inspect your stroller within the first 24 hours of its arrival, to make sure there are no visible deficiencies or missing items. If any are present, we need you to report those to us immediately for further action, along with photos clearly showing a deficiency (video may be required when the damage is not visible on a photo, eg frame not folding).
We will need photos/videos (taken with your cell phone are great!), to send to the manufacturer for assessment, and parts replacement. Depending on the damage, the manufacturer will send you a part replacement directly (free of charge) within your warranty coverage. If you are unable to replace the parts yourself, majority of local bike repair shops will have the necessary tools to do this for you, such as wheel tire replacement.
All non-warranty repairs are at the expense of the customer, however, we are pleased to assist you as much as possible after your warranty expires, such as getting your replacement parts and assistance with the repairs.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with details of your damage/claim and photos, and we will forward them to our supplier for appropriate action. Please do not contact any service centre without an authorization from us first.
We are pleased to announce that we are now offering Global Shipping on majority of our products to the select countries, as shown on the map below (dark highlighted text are the areas we ship to).
The map below is divided into 4 areas: North America, Central/South America, Middle East, and Australia/New Zealand. Each area has a different price point for shipping, please refer to the product page for specific details. North America shipping is always FREE.
As we are based out of Canada, we are not able to ship to Europe (even though all these products are shipped from Europe!), as this region is already covered by other stores that work with our suppliers in Europe.
Please note: Stroller Boutique is not responsible for any customs/duties/taxes, or any other fees related to import of the products, and such costs are responsibility of the customer.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE DO NOT SELL CAR SEATS.
Many European-based stores sell our strollers with the car seat as 3in1 ("travel system") option. "Travel system" is simply the ability to place an infant car seat onto the stroller frame, with appropriate adapters. We often get a question from our customers if we can sell a car seat that originally comes with the stroller. Unfortunately, due to different road traffic regulations and with your safety in mind, we are unable to import European car seats into North American (and any global) market.
It is illegal to use a European car seat in Canada, and in USA according to individual state laws. It is also illegal to use a US bought car seat in Canada! For other global destinations, please use your locally purchased car seat as well, to make sure it complies with your country's regulations.
European car seats are quite different than North American versions of the same seat, and they are not better or worse, just have a different design to have a proper fit in vehicles (which are different in Europe and North America), and European seats have a 3-point harness vs North American 5-point harness that comes with a chest clip. It is always best to make sure you use a locally purchased car seat, as this will ensure a proper fit in your vehicle. Some of the places to shop (many offer shipping!) for a car seat are:

You can buy excellent infant car seats in Canada and US, such as Maxi-Cosi, Nuna Pipa, Cybex Aton - these will work with all of our travel system compatible strollers. There is no advantage in bringing a car seat from Europe.
Due to the best fit with our stroller adapters, WE RECOMMEND Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30:
MAXI-COSI* / NUNA PIPA / CYBEX ATON INFANT CAR SEAT ADAPTERS
MAXI-COSI* / NUNA PIPA/ CYBEX ATON** ADAPTERS are available for most of our strollers, please see the stroller product page for details for travel system compatibility. These adapters will fit Maxi-Cosi, Nuna Pipa, and Cybex Aton infant car seat brands.
When using the Maxi Cosi / Nuna / Cybex car seat adapters, the infant car seats must click into place on the adapter to be secured to the stroller frame.
* Maxi-Cosi Prezi model does not fit our Maxi-Cosi.
** Cybex Aton models will work with our adapters, Cloud model does not fit.
INFANT CAR SEATS vs TODDLER CAR SEATS
Some customers ask us if a convertible toddler car seat will fit on the stroller, and the answer is always NO. Convertible/toddler car seats are big and heavy, and are meant to stay in the car, you do not take them out as you would with the infant car seats. If you would like to use the stroller as a travel system with the car seat, you must make sure it is the INFANT car seat you buy.
There are some great convertible car seats on the market that will work for infants too, but please be aware that they cannot be used on the stroller. One example of this type of convertible car seat is Clek or Diono.
TRAVEL SYSTEM ADVISORY
THINKING OF USING A TRAVEL SYSTEM? Think Again! Infants should not be spending unnecessary time in their car seats. A new study in the journal Pediatrics shows that infant car seats can compress the chest wall and reduce the airway size which may result in lower oxygen level in the blood. The study placed 200 new born babies in the hospital crib and in a car seat. Infants who slept in a car seat had lower oxygen levels than those who slept in a crib. This puts a new light on the over extensive use of the popular travel systems where convenience for parents outweighs the health of babies. Parents today can unclick the baby from the car without taking the baby out of the car seat and click into a stroller as they go about their ways. This results in infants spending over extended time in this compromising position. Experts advise that car seats should only be used in cars for safe travelling and not a convenient substitute for a crib or stroller.
