One of the questions I get asked a lot is how we manage traveling and carrying all of our kids gear. I have seen far to many parents, including myself one time at the Las Vegas airport, struggling to carry their toddlers car seat while also carrying said toddler and their luggage. Don’t be that parent and get yourself a Car Seat Transporter, I promise it will save your life! I’ve been using Brica’s SmartMove (previously called Roll N Go) Car Seat Transporter for 6 months now and I won’t ever go back to the days of struggling to manage all of our belongings. Here’s me using my SmartMove Car Seat Transporter on our trip to NY. I was able to carry both the girls, Jordyn’s car seat, my luggage, and their diaper bag all by myself!
How to Use the Brica SmartMove Car Seat Transporter
Pros and Cons of the Brica Smartmove Car Seat Transporter
What I Love:
- It transports my toddlers heavy car seat and contains her at the same time…. I mean do I really need to list anything else?
- It’s very easy to attach the car seat to the transporter
- It supports up to 100lbs- my Chicco Nextfit weighs 25lbs so I have until the girls weigh 75lbs to use it
- The transporter allows you to push or pull the car seat
- The transporter folds down compactly, easily fitting in the overhead bins of the aircraft
Here’s a video of me using it on one of our trips showing you how you can pull or push it.
- If you don’t plan to use your car seat on the plane and are using the transporter just to gate check your stroller it doesn’t provide protection for your car seat
- Although it fits most convertible and forward facing car seats Brica doesn’t provide a list of the compatible ones so you will need to buy and test it with yours before getting to the airport
Conclusion: It’s a lifesaver if you always gate check your stroller or use it on the plane especially if you travel frequently and even more so if you park at the airport and have to walk to your car.

Thanks for this great article and sharing all this precious info!
Would you mind sharing how did it go when it was time to board the plane. Were you able to keep the Nexfit carseat attached to the Brica car seat transporter all the way to your seats? Did it fit through the airplane aisle?
Thank you for sharing your experience! Truly helpful! 🙂
We flew JetBlue and it did not fit going down the aisle. We took it off and carried it to our seat and my daughter walked. Other times we have just checked it at the gate so I’m not sure if it would have fit down the aisle on another carrier. I swear these airline aisles are getting more narrow.
