The best start-ups launch when a need goes unfulfilled. Think about how stressful it is for countless parents every day who need to travel with their small children to the airport, but the car services don’t offer car seats. Parents are forced to hold tight to their little ones and pray they get to their destination in one piece, or bring their own car seat which is a huge pain. Life should not be that hard! Knowing parents’ transportation dilemmas, Kidmoto is a new solution to the problem.
Kidmoto is a mobile app that offers parents in Orlando, Cape Canaveral, New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Westchester, and Charlotte car service that comes with properly installed car seats. The service takes families to area airports and cruise ports only. They do not accommodate local in-town trips. Available on both Android and iOS, Kidmoto reaches every parent who needs between 1 to 4 car seats. We appreciate that Kidmoto is on both Android and iOS as we’ve seen that many start-ups will start with an iOS app and leave an entire swath of Android users without the solution they also desperately need. We also appreciate that Kidmoto has really thought of everything in terms of child safety. All of its drivers have been trained on how to install a car seat and also all of their car seats are properly maintained and clean. No child wants to be in a dirty car seat and no parents want to put their child in one either.
Interestingly, there is an entire segment of car seats on the market that offers parents travel-friendly options, smaller seats, but no matter how travel-friendly they are it is still a pain to have to bring your own car seat along with you when you travel. You have to shuffle kids, your purse, diaper bags, your kids’ toys and tablets, your phone, and luggage. No one wants to add a car seat to that combination. Kidmoto helps give parents peace of mind when it comes to family travel.
While Kidmoto, launched in 2016 by former Uber driver Nelson Niger, is available in limited cities right now their vision is to be available at all major airports both stateside and internationally. Parents can choose between sedans, minivans, and large SUVs and as mentioned earlier between 1 to 4 pre-installed car seats.
How To Schedule a Trip To Airport or Cruise Port
You can schedule a trip on both the Kidmoto site as well as via their app. You will need to put in the basic information such as your pick-up location as well as the time you would like to be picked up. You can scroll through a variety of options based on the style of vehicle you want and the number of car seats you need. You can also customize the type of car seat you need based on your child’s size and whether it needs to be rear or forward-facing. You will find an estimate when booking your trip and you can leave driver instructions as well as all of your airport details. Very easy!
