This is a tricky one, but something we get asked all the time. Obviously, safety is at the forefront of our minds when it comes to buying a car seat full stop.
So it goes, you should never buy a used car seat in case it has ever been involved in an accident and of course, standard car seats are made of plastic which degrades over time.
The Multimac should be treated slightly differently, as it’s made of aluminium, which is obviously far more robust than plastic, and like your car is designed to last forever. You could say it is designed to aircraft standards.
On a couple of occasions we have sent the same Multimac down the test rig twice, and amazingly the second time, the results were within to the first
The most important thing to take from this is that if you do happen to buy a second hand Multimac - you cannot use the same fitting parts that the previous owner has. All cars are different when it comes to mounting the Multimac, and fitting parts are car specific. We have several different tether straps types, lengths of tether straps, sizes of bolts and eyebolts, as well as different threads, washers, spreader plates and we know exactly what each different car model requires. So, you must order a new fitting kit from us directly (starting from £29 - depending on the car) Once you have taken delivery of the fitting kit for your car, you are welcome to use any of our fitting agents listed on the website.
Having said all that, just be aware of the state of the Multimac you have seen advertised. After many years of children sat in it, with their sticky fingers, spillages, and other potential messes – parts may well need replacing. Luckily everything is replicable on the Multimac but by the time you have ordered new harnesses, chest pads and of course a new fitting kit – you may well find that the cost is adding up.
No, the multimac is a fixed unit so you cannot add a seat onto the unit or remove one.
As our seats are made to order there is a 4-6 week wait time, so to first secure your order we take a 50% deposit on order. Once you reach the top of our wait list you will receive a link to pay the other 50% of your order total. When this has been paid your seat will then be dispatched within 14 working days.
Our widest 3 seater does have wider seats than our widest 4 seater but different cars will take different seat models each of which have different widths.
Nope, in fact many of our customers have sent photos of their children fast asleep in the multimac.
We offer a fully customisable leather trim which includes up to two colours of your choice. Read more here.
No, we don't currently have a buy-back scheme in place.
No, the normal car seat belt can only be used on the two end seats of the multimac so only 2 people can use the standard car seat belt.
No, we don’t usually sell ex-display seats as we have very few of them in the first place.
We only sell our seats online but if you’d like to see the multimac in-person you can visit our showroom in Birmingham, UK, just let us know when you want to visit.
Our founder Kevin Macliver had his fourth child and although he owned a 7 seater car he was uncomfortable with putting one of his children in the boot (crumple zone). Not to mention the increased cost of fuel, tax, and insurance. So he invented multimac to make life easier for his family and in turn many other families across the world with 3 or 4 children.
You can either remove the seat entirely - takes around 5 minutes after tether straps have been fitted. Or you can lift up each of the seat cushions and access underneath the seat this way.
Yep, the multimac is made of faux leather material (with the option of real leather). Both materials are easy to wipe down and you can also remove the seat cushion to get in all the nooks and crannies of the seat and fully clean it.
We have a small showroom in Birmingham (UK) that you are welcome to visit and see the seats in-person but please let us know if you’re planning on coming so we can schedule you in.
The 5-point harness takes children up to 12 years old. They can then use the plug in buckle on the two outside seats.
The use of the head hugger depends on your baby’s growth rate. We recommend using the largest foam insert when they’re newborn, then the smaller one at around 3 months, and then removing the head hugger at 6 months.
