Quick. Emergency.

Where can I get carseats and booster seats free or extremely cheap, immediately?





CPS just called, they are removing my step kids from their home and wanted to see if we would take them or if they needed to go into foster care. Obviously we are taking them. Planning on leaving in an hour or two, (it is a 12 hour drive)





My problem is, I dont have car seats or boosters for them. I really cant afford to go buy 4 new ones, although I will if I have too. Any ideas where to get some asap for cheap? any help would be appreciated


Eta: Thanks ladies, I knew you could help fast. I am headed to Walmart.

Wal-Mart has cheap ones. Also check out Social Services, or the Police/Fire department. They might be able to help as well.

Are you in PA or MD by chance? If so, I got a carseat you can have.

Call your local srs or health dept they should know.

CPS should be able to get the seats the children already have when they're removed ...

If not, like others have suggested walmart is fairly cheap. PD and FD's aren't going to have any on hand (It'd be a rare case if they do!)

Fire or Police station. Maybe the cps worker can help you out with seats for them. Hope all goes well.

Why don't you take the ones that are at their house now? Assuming they had one. If not you can borrow a friends until you can afford to buy carseats. Good luck!

Just be safe and don't go buy any used ones from people. You can't be sure if the car seat had been in a car that got into an accident. I understand that you really don't have the money for 4 new car seats but it's better to be safe than sorry, especially if your going to be using them all the time now

Can the county provide them? Their (where the children are now) countys local fire/police station. Give them a call & explain it's an emergency. Red cross too? Good luck!!
