MEET THE BUSINESS OWNER – Jennifer Wong started working as a Certified Nurse’s Aide doing elderly care for care homes and agencies when she noticed a lack of wheelchair accessible van rentals for the mobility impaired. With the growing influx of elderly and mobility impaired travelers becoming apparent, she and her husband purchased the Wheelers franchise for the State of Hawaii back in 2003. Today, they have a fleet of approximately 13 vans located throughout the islands with local agents residing on each island to personally serve their customers; Kauai, Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island of Hawaii (Kona). Wheelers’ fleet consists of manual side loading wheelchair modified minivans by Braun and Vantage Mobility. Hand controls are not offered.
Wheelers of Hawaii looks forward to serving you soon.
Our list of services…
We feature late model Dodge/Chrysler specially modified wheelchair accessible vans for rent or sale. There are side loading vans available complete with tie downs and seat belts for customers who wish to travel in their wheelchairs or scooters. Vans are available on Kauai, Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island of Hawaii (Kona). Airport and Cruise terminal delivery and pickup service is available at additional cost.
Affordable daily, weekly, and monthly rates. Multi-Island rentals are welcome. Honolulu customers choosing Airport delivery/return service are met curbside outside of baggage claim and driven directly to their Waikiki hotel at no extra charge. Vans are delivered with full tanks of gasoline and need to topped off prior to return.
Please remember to bring your handicapped parking placard with you as we cannot provide them by state law. Be advised that the police do not care whether our vehicles are for wheelchair customers or not, they will issue a very expensive citation to you in the event you do not display your placard. You may still unload/load in the handicapped stalls, just don’t park in them.
