Bad bearings, daily driver... What to do?

So took the jeep in to get my heater fixed and long story short the guy told me my wheel bearings are bad. Have a app next Monday to get it fixed, problem is in the meantime I need to get back and forth to work. About 10 miles each way. Need some advice people. Thanks in advance.

What was the evidence for them failing? Are they howling when you drive?

No howling, I do hear a faint squeaky noise when i drive. I only hear it when the window is down.

Guy said it felt like the wheel was going to fall off. Other than the faint noise, I haven't noticed any change in the way the jeep drives. Unless the bearings have been bad for awhile and I'm just used to it.

If it is really that bad you should feel it when you drive. I'd have to jack it up and give them a check. Usually they make alot of noise if they are that bad. If they are that bad I'd think about a rental or Uber.
