Young's is advertised as a third-generation family business on Nantucket. If current day customer service is any indication, I can see why they've been successful for so long. Our experience was excellent at every step of the way - from the easy-to-use website to the rental and return processes. The staff we met were all friendly and efficient, and each... More

Originally wanted to rent mopeds, but weather was bad, so we stopped here for a rental car. Had no reservation but staff was very courteous and got us a sedan. Very polite and professional, would gladly stop here to do business if I get back to Nantucket again!

To start, I wanted to secure a rental online...this shop had the best site in my opinion. Upon my arrival there were 3-4 peeps that helped make the bike rental seamless. The bikes we had came with a bell, basket, and even a bungee cord (great for strapping a bag to back of bike landing pad type thing). I rented... More

Bringing a car over on a ferry to Nantucket costs over $400. When I tried to reserve a car rental on Nantucket online at Youngs, it stated online reservations require a 2 day minimum. We decided to "wing it" and try to get a rental once we arrived. When we went to Young's, (closest to the ferry) there was only... More

The staff got on our way quickly with hikes, helmets and locks. Reminded us of biking rules and etiquette. We did 27 miles and returned mid afternoon where we were once again greeted by the friendly staff. As we were gathering our things, the counter staff said they'd refund us $ since we didn't use the entire day rental, didn't... More

When family is visiting we rent from Young's. Young's is an institution, and family owned. They've been around for decades, family run, and have been the go-to bike shop on Nantucket because each year they invest in the newest models and have a huge selection. The entire staff is friendly and know their stuff which is important because if you're... More

Our 6 bikes were ready and waiting when we arrived. Great, helpful staff and very comfortable bikes for a group who hadn't done long bike hikes in years!

We were recommended to rent bikes from Young's by the Union Street Inn. They were about a 5 minute walk from the Inn and were fairly priced. Rented the bikes for a full day and had the weather been nicer we would have used them a bit more. If you want to see the island, I'd say this is the... More

The staff is very friendly, they will attend to every detail - selecting potential biking routes, adjusting the bike to your height, even adjusting your helmet if you would like. The rental bikes are comfortable and well maintained.

We've done business at Young's for years. Still family run (Harvey may well greet you at the door), it offers great service, particularly if you are renting, a host of buying opportunities including bikes and accessories and you can even rent a car. A not closely hidden secret at Young's is the ability to purchase used rental bikes. We've bought... More
