USED PRAMS

Quality that stands the test of time – we are always pleased to see older Emmaljunga prams on the streets and proud that our quality products can clearly continue to be used for many years.

It is great several children can have the benefit of using an Emmaljunga pram over the years. Perhaps there is even an Emmaljunga pram stored in your home that you used as a child?

However, there are some things that you should consider before putting a used pram back into use or buying a second hand model.


SAFETY

An older model will not comply with the latest safety requirements, according to EN1888:2012. This places a higher responsibility on you as a consumer to check that the product operates correctly.

When you buy a used pram, it is important that you check all of the safety features.

Even though a pram may appear to be in good condition, you should always ensure that all safety functions are working correctly, just as you have the brake discs on your car regularly checked, and if they are not in good working order, replacement parts should be obtained.


WARNING!

Read all safety information in the product manual carefully. Usage of the product in any other way than that described in the manual could result in the risk of an accident.

Do not use the pram until you have read through the manual thoroughly and made yourself aware of all safety information.


BOOK A SAFETY CHECK FOR YOUR PRAM

If your pram is more than 5 years old, it must undergo a safety check carried out by an authorised retailer.

The same requirement applies if you buy a used pram in order to minimise the risk of accidents as a result of wear or overloading.

Prams from 2011 onwards have a service handbook included with the instruction manual, which should be completed by an authorised retailer.


HOW SHOULD I READ THE SERIAL NUMBER?

All prams and Pushchairs from Emmaljunga have a serial number that tells when the pram/pushchair was manufactured and exactly what model it is.

The label should NEVER be removed and the label should NEVER be removed and serial number is always required when you need help with service and maintenance.

The serial number consists of the article number, production date and a batch number (exception: some older models do not display the article number)


REMEMBER, IF YOU BUY A USED PRODUCT TO ENSURE THAT:

  • The corresponding manual is included
  • The stroller is correctly assembled
  • The stroller has an harness which meets the requirements of the EN1888 standard
  • No part is damaged
  • The chassis is not damaged or corroded
  • The chassis locking devices work correctly and can be locked into position
  • If the pram is equipped with accessories or if you want to buy one or more accessories to accompany your pram, ensure that they are approved by the manufacturer and are used correctly
  • The braking system is working correctly
  • The wheel assemblies are functioning correctly
  • The wheels are the original wheels and that the attachments operate correctly
  • The tyres are not worn or punctured
  • The stroller chassis tubing and/or other parts are not bent or damaged as a result of overloading
  • The suspension of the pram is ‘normal’. If the suspension appears too ‘soft’, it must be re-examined thoroughly
  • The chassis handle has a normal height (approx. 97 – 105 cm above the ground depending on the model)
  • The level of wear on double prams is generally higher as a result of the extra weight that these models carry and so you must check carefully the state of this type of pram.

SPARE PARTS FOR OLDER MODELS

We often receive requests for spare parts for older pram models. Depending on the type of pram, we may still be able to supply some parts. However, for prams that are significantly older such, as models from the 80s and 90s, there are now unfortunately no spare parts available.
