In Essex we are fortunate to have an In Car Safety Centre where you can get free expert advice on buying correct car seat for your car and be shown how to fit the seat correctly. The centre holds a wide selection of seats for you to test in your car and saves you time and money buy avoiding buying a seat which is unsuitable. People travel from far and wide to visit the centre so why not take advantage of having one here in Essex.
