Toronto’s Original Stroller Repair Depot

Our goal is to get you rolling again!

We’re an official repair depot for major stroller brands such as Uppa Baby, Peg Perego, Baby Jogger, Guzzie & Guss, and Bumbleride – bring your stroller in and let us take a look!

We do our best to repair just about anything – from flat tires to seats that won’t recline anymore, and what we can’t repair we can replace with genuine replacement parts from many major companies. Prices vary depending on the severity of the problem but we provide free estimates and price quotes for repairs. All repairs are done on-site by shop owner Bill, who has been doing repairs here since he was just a kid himself!

“I’ve been fixing strollers for… a few years now.”

Stroller Repairs

As one of the few places that offer stroller repairs, our depot can get a little busy! We do our absolute best to get your wheels back to you within a couple days, but it can depend on the severity of the repairs needed or if we need to order a part in – you should plan ahead for time without a stroller.­­­

  • All work is done on a drop-off basis, bring your stroller into the store anytime during business hours and leave it with us!
  • Stroller still under warranty? Don’t forget your proof of purchase or registration form (physical or electronic copy).

Using all natural cleaning products provided by BuggyLove, their USDA certified Organic ingredients are USA made, non-GMO, non-toxic, paraben, phthalate and sulphate free. We’ll leave you squeaky clean and smelling fresh without ever worrying what chemicals might be left behind!

Stroller Maintenance Tips

  • Lubrication is a stroller’s best friend – squirt a little of any lubricant into moving parts every couple months (more often in the winter).
  • Wheels not running as smoothly as they used to? Pull them off (there’s usually a button to release them), clean off the axles, lubricate and then put them back on.
  • Don’t store your stroller in direct sunlight as it fades the fabric very quickly, avoid leaving it in a damp environment as it may get mildew/mold, keep an eye out for squirrels or raccoons chewing fabric.
  • Clean stroller fabrics according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Avoid harsh soaps or too hot water in case it shrinks your fabric, and if you remove the fabric to clean it remember to put it back on before letting it dry. We also sell cleaning kits (BuggyLove & Crypton for Clek) specifically made for strollers and car seats!
  • Adjustable footrests can break if placed under too much stress, try to keep older or heavier children from putting too much weight onto it or it may snap! This is probably our most common repair.
  • Wheels wear down over time, just like on your car. Don’t worry – we usually stock or can order most manufacturer’s replacement wheels.
  • and finally – don’t forget to lock it up! Stroller theft is unfortunately a common occurrence.
