The entire staff made a very stressful move a lot less stressful.

It is located on a busy road and has basically no parking as the lot is full of other vehicles. Awkward to get in and out and poor signage . Also the trailer pick up area is located several blocks away from the office. This is inconvenient. The plus side is the business employee was good.

having to go from the rental office to a different area many blocks away to pick up the vehicle is just not good and is more hassle then its worth.

Let customers know there is no space for parking your car. There is paid parking across the street.

The assistance hooking up and removing the trailer was way beyond any of my expectations! Kudos to the staff for all their help, would certainly recommend them to everyone I know.

Location was hard to find and parking to just get to the office was difficult. However, the pleasant helpful staff made up for the shortcomings of the location.

Better signage Dirty and messy office Agent seemed uninterested Pickup and drop off at separate location from office creating extra step in process

I was given wrong truck to begin with and then the associate could change my name on the contract!!

Drop off was a breeze, the service rep was excellent and more than willing to make you want to return. I would however question where I would have parked the truck if they were not open. This has been an issue in past where you are told to drop it at an address that can not accommodate the truck. Because they were open and the neighbour was not I was able to park next door and turn in the vehicle. All good.
