Hi,

I have a discontinued stroller & our wheel is broke. How can I get a new one?

Hey, Shay,

I am sorry to say it is not easy at all, sometimes even impossible. The first and ideal thing is to repair the damage (if it's small and repairable). Cleaning, lubrication, inflating if it's an air-filled tire, and possible changing of the inner tube at, ie., a bike shop, are the things doable and done most of the time when doing your stroller maintenance.

My next step would be to contact either the seller if it's not a very old stroller, or directly the manufacturer (customer service). They might still have spare parts even for a discontinued stroller model, but this is not always the case, so be ready for no or a negative reply.

Your last option, of nothing works, would be to browse classifieds for the same pram you already own. There might be a cheaper older model, or even someone selling the same one for parts (with something else broken, for example).

And that is all. If you won't be successful in any of these things, you will, eventually, need to replace your stroller.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
