Delightful Company

When it came time for us to purchase a vehicle as we prepared our move to Costa Rica, I checked several FaceBook chats for advice. Time and again I heard about Wheels CR and Russ.

The Fortuner is built on the same chassis as the Hilux, it is a great choice for areas with rougher roads.

I contacted him to see about finding an appropriate vehicle for our needs. Russ was most helpful not only in searching out several options, but in providing guidance on what we should do to be prepared to make the purchase- the best way to pay for it, be prepared for insurance and attorney fees, etc.

I had no idea where to start looking for a car, much less how to navigate the process for purchase, and Russ made it easy.

We scheduled the day for purchasing- in our case, a Saturday, which added a bit of complication. Chris was waiting in our hotel lobby for us precisely on time and we took off to look at cars. He showed us a list of at least 5 cars that fit our needs and budget.

Chris was delightful company as he took us to one that wasn’t the top of the list, but to see it for comparison. At the second place we found car. Chris was well-known to the dealers and helped us communicate (with our poor Spanish). 

We love our new purchase, but hats off to Wheels CR who made the whole process smooth and very enjoyable.

We highly recommend them to anyone in the process of moving to Costa Rica and needing to find a vehicle. It was well worth the reasonable fee. Even though we will soon be living here full time, if we need another vehicle, I will turn to Russ and Wheels CR.
