Hi everyone,

Looking for some advice here. When dd was little, we were living in the US and as such have two American car seats (Peg Perego Viagio and Britax Boulevard). We have recently moved provinces in Canada only to find out that our seats are considered illegal here. Since we are expecting, I now have to buy at least 2 convertable car seats asap. I would like to sell my US seats but am unsure how best to do so. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice?

I'd try posting in the family safety forum, they'd probably have some good tips for you.

I would only buy a seat from someone I knew well. On that basis I would try to find someone knew who wanted a seat.

I doo see lots of seats advertised in the local paper though so I presume some people must be happy to buy them that way.

I actually gave mine away on the local radio stations swap shop. So that might be a option for you.

Do you live near the border? Try a Craigslist listing for the appropriate community...
