“Every thing went great for me I would recommend them. I will use this company again“
“I have read the reviews and I must say what I experienced from them was far from all the negative. Wheelers really helped us out in a bind. We had rented through another company and the morning of our trip said they did not have a van for us as we were coming into town to see family. Called around and managed to get a hold of Heather over at Wheelers. She let us know they had a van available last minute! Worked with us to get it delivered upon landing and even sweet enough to pick it up from the house as we were staying long term! Definitely grateful and will without a doubt absolutely be renting from them again!!!“
“I’ve used Wheelers over and over again and I would never rent from anyone else. Wheelers does it right“
