Buggy Survival Guide: Tip No.4 - Don’t Re-Invent the Wheel, Re-Align It

Buggy Revival has compiled some top tips on how best to maintain your buggy and what areas to pay special attention to so it stays working efficiently and looking slick for longer. We will be publishing all our tips over a series of blog posts so do take a look at our other published blogs as well as forthcoming tips.

It's wheely, wheely easy to keep your wheels tip top for longer. You needn’t re-invent the wheel, simply re-align it. Follow our Buggy Survival tips:

Your pushchair's wheels probably know your local streets better than your own feet do - from every bump and crack in the pavement - having being dragged around, shunted up and down steps, on and off buses after day. And with the added responsibility of carrying your baby at every weight of their development, is it any wonder the wheels can become loose or suffer punctures and alignment issues?

  • Pamper those wheels from time to time - give them a wash and clean down to reduce excessive build up of yuckiness like hair in the spokes or mud in the tread and joints
  • Subject to wear and tear, tyres/wheels should be replaced as and when necessary. (It’s best to contact the stockist for or an accredited pushchair service centre for advice on spare parts and repairs.)
  • Oil the joints from time to time to keep everything lubricated and spinning as they should. As always, we recommend Green Oil's Eco Lube
