Mountain Buggy + One, small car boot.

Does anyone have any experience of a MB + 1 in a small boot? I could get a Quinny buzz with the wheels off and the seat unit in the boot of my car, I'm just wondering if the MB would fit as well.

Thank you.

Hmmm....I have photos of both pushchairs in my boot if that helps you at all. This is the +One photo. PM me your e-mail addy if you need the matching Buzz photo.
I will be honest though and say if the Buzz doesnt fit in your boot with the seat left on then you dont have a hope of the +One fitting. Looking at my photos, the +One sits a fair bit higher up, and the length is at a guess 8-10cms longer as well. The Buzz sits well inside the lip on the left rather than overhanging like the +One does. Plus I literally put the Buzz in and didnt fold in the footrest etc which would make it smaller. If you can get to a pushchair shop and try an Urban Jungle in your boot, then you would have a good idea of whether the +One would fit.

No, that's very helpful thank you. I don't think it will fit, we got the buzz in on a whim and a prayer tbh.

I have managed to get my +1 into a Corsa boot with the back wheels off and was a fiddle. Also into a Peugeot 206 which was easier as slightly wider but still a squeeze.

I took a pic of it in the corsa boot as was certain I wouldn't be able to do it again ha! I wouldn't want to do it day in day out that's why I have my bee but I still love my +1
