Google is offering car seat rental services in the United Kingdom.
The search giant said it would offer car seat rentals for the first time in the country on Wednesday, as it launches a new service aimed at helping people with serious health problems get a better fit for their car seats.
Google is the world’s largest car seat company and said its Car Seat Recovery Service would help people who have a serious health problem get a “fit” for their cars seat.
The service will include “carpet delivery” and will be available on a rolling basis, starting on January 1.
Google said it will provide up to three car seats a week, but it said it is “not currently available in England, Scotland or Wales”.
“Our team of car seat specialists will be able to provide you with an appointment to arrange your car seat fit with the right fit specialist and your health will be 100 per cent protected,” a Google spokesperson told the BBC.
Google said the service will not replace a car seat’s warranty.
“The Car Seat Restoration Service is not an option for people with car seats that have expired, worn out or damaged, but the service is designed to help you get a car that is fit for you and safe for you to ride,” it said.
“Our car seat service is for people who need a quick fix for a fit problem or who are just interested in being able to get a ride to the shops.”
A spokeswoman for Google said the new service was not a replacement for a car’s warranty, and that it would only be available to “certain qualified individuals”.
“If you have a car with an expired, damaged or worn out car seat, Google Car Seat Rescue can help,” the spokeswoman said.
Google’s new service will be launched with a limited number of seats available.
The spokeswoman said the “rescue” part of the service was meant to “avoid any potential liability issues” for the company.
The spokesperson said the company had previously worked with Google to offer “safety-first” car seat fittings for “people with serious medical conditions” and would do so again with Google Car Saver.
The spokesman said Google had “made a significant investment” in its “car seat recovery service”, adding: “We have already delivered over 1 million safe car seats in the U.S. alone and we have plans to deliver more over the next year.”
Google’s Car Savers are designed to make sure that “a seat fits for you” by removing or modifying “the car’s internal components, such as the seat belt, seat base, seat and car seats, to reduce the likelihood of injury to the occupant”.
Google said it was also working with the British Transport Police to “help protect people with injuries caused by seat fit issues”.
Google, however, said it had no plans to stop offering the service.
Google’s car seat recovery services have helped more than 5 million people with their car seat issues, including more than 3 million people who received a new car seat after a car crash, and more than 4 million people in the first 24 hours of its launch.
Google previously said it wanted to offer a “car-safe” solution for people suffering car accidents, but said it did not have plans for a “carr-safe”, or car-saver-like, solution.
