I have three homes they take care of and I have never ever had any problems with them! The drivers are very professional! I like that the drivers call you the night before to let me know when they will be at my home too! Culligan is a great company to work with! – Susan Parker

“I've lost track of how long I have been a client but I can tell you that I started with Culligan and have not left. The office people are a pleasure to work with and the delivery people are helpful too.
