Frequently Asked Questions

How long has Water on Wheels been delivering water?

Our first delivery was in 2006!  We proudly support Island Folk Fest by providing fresh drinking water. We also give a helping hand to the Vimy Riding Association by watering down their riding ring early in the morning prior to competitions. This makes it more tolerable for the up-and-coming riders to compete without being choked with dust.

I have used Water On Wheels for about 4 years and they have been great to deal with. I have used them for household and pool water and they are always on time and go the extra mile if I have run short on water. I have no problem recommending them to anyone.

As a long-time customer of Water on Wheels, I cannot say enough about the excellent, prompt service and friendly, courteous staff. 

A Satisfied Customer

The Vimy Western Riding Club is able to host its shows and clinics throughout the ongoing hot and dry summers largely thanks to Water on Wheels. Hot weather causes the footing to dry out, which not only affect traction, but also amplifies temperature and creates a tremendous amount of fine dust, which can be dangerous for both the horse and rider. Thankfully, with the help of Water on Wheels, we’ve been able to avoid cancellations. Their water truck, which is fitted with a spray bar, ensures our ring is maintained and kept safe.
