The staff was excellent! The truck was in great condition and although they did not have a dolly in the shop (this was in my order), they made sure they found one in another vehicle for me.

The office itself looked fine and the lady on the phone was very helpful. No complaints there. However, if you do an after hours drop off you have to take the truck to a different location about 10 mins walk from the key drop off. The main issue is that the truck parking area was jam packed so it was almost impossible to park it and not block off other vehicles, as requested. We had a 15 foot truck. Would have been even more nerve racking if we had had an even larger truck.

The drop off place was great people are very friendly. U-Haul is a complete different story they overcharged $500 and are not willing to do anything about it they lost a good customer

There is no place to pull in to this location. It is on the highway in downtown Nanaimo. No parking at all the lot for drop off is a few km away

Continue the excellent customer service that I received from staff. I completed my move feeling that U-Haul had done an excellent job of ensuring that I was provided with everything I needed on time and in good shape.

It was somewhat difficult to find the place. We drove by it a couple times before we actually could see the sign, but we knew we were in the right area.

What is the Safe Move charge of $15.00? I didn't know anything about this charge and don't know why we were charged. Could you please explain this charge to me. Thanks

Your Holding compound could be together with your office, PLUS... have some secured parking for your clientele. Parking and leaving my own Van parked on the street on a known or once known BAD area. Other than that I enjoyed the rental unit, thank you Steve Ferenzi :) Will see you again!!!! AWESOME VEHICLE...

The lot that holds the trucks is a bit of a walk back to the office. A lift to/from the lot during office hours is appreciated. After office hours, a fair walk after 2 days of moving and being exhausted.
