    Is it brand new?

    If so I would go to Mothercare or John Lewis, and pretend you want to buy one the same.
    Those places are really good, it helps to see how long it takes to fit it and how much of a pain it is to get in and out.

    You can go to Halfords or a car garage as they check them for you too, a big garage like a ford dealer etc, not odd job john.

    The AA does free carseat inspections! There should be one near to you and I would trust them more than anyone else. Halfords does do checks, but the advice and acurate feedback depends on who you deal with. They sell car seats and can be more interested in selling you a new one when the one you've got is perfectly good!!
    I'd go with AA - that's exactly what they're there for!
    Good luck

    hi i was at my anti natal class this week and car seats came up. The fire service check car seats etc they are fully trained. You just need to ring your local station to arrange a time to go. My friend had her car seat checked at halfords, a young lad did the check and she didn't really feel very confident with what he did so she went to mothercare. They only check to see i you have fitted it correctly they won't do it for you.

    Hope that helps
