Jennifer with husband Jordan

MEET THE BUSINESS OWNER – Jennifer Wong started working as a Certified Nurses Aide doing elderly care for care homes and agencies when I noticed a lack of wheelchair van rentals for the mobility impaired. With the growing influx of elderly and mobility impaired travelers becoming apparent, my husband and I purchased the Wheelers franchise for the State of Hawaii back in 2003. Today, we have a fleet of approximately 13 vans located throughout the islands with local agents residing on each island to personally serve our customers serving Kauai, Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island of Hawaii (Kona). Our fleet consists of manual side loading wheelchair modified minivans by Braun and Vantage Mobility. We do not offer hand controls. We look forward to serving you soon.

Thank you for your interest in Wheelers Van Rentals of Hawaii. Because our fleet is so small we rent by the CALENDAR day and not 24 hour clock. Reservations are on a 1st come 1st served basis which means regardless of the time of your arrival your rental will begin on that particular calendar day and end on the date of departure.

Prices subject to change without notice.

Upon receipt of your reservation form we will contact you with a reservation confirmation # and provide you with landing instructions on how to pick up your van at the airport via our local agents. 20 days prior to your van pick up date we will contact you again to reconfirm your flights and process payment.
