“I had a lifting tail van for a couple of days from Wrights. The truck was clean and in good working order, and the service was great. Reserved over the phone and the truck was waiting in the parking the next day. Sometimes they’re a bit busier, so I was told it’d be safer to reserve in advance. Would I rent from Wrights again? Sure.”
