You need to have more than 1 person working at the front desk. I arrived there early, and then had to wait an hour to get a truck to rent. I had called in advance, and made a reservation, too.

I re-fueled the vehicle above what it was before I picked up, which was incorrectly marked on paperwork, and to which I brought to Monica's attention, who in turn initialed my paperwork. I was then charged $30 ez-fuel. I will be disputing this charge. Please note that the fuel level noted on the receipt that was emailed to me was also way off and below what the fuel level I left the vehicle with was.

Whoever was working the front counter on Sunday morning did a fantastic job. He handled stress like a champ and there were some customers being annoying & mouthy.

Overall had a good experience. I felt the representative overcharged me when it came to mileage. That was frustrating. I probably need 40-50 miles and he said he would charge me for 80 miles. Granted I should have paid more attention when he was letting me know. I felt like I was taken advanced of. Other than that he was courteous and professional.

My experience was good. It was a quick checkin and the truck was what I expected. Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything worked well.

Smoother relationship between on-line reservation and service at counter (had to do most everything over again). Staffing also very thin (but capable).

I booked a furniture dolley online and was not told until I arrived that they were not available and had not been for some time. If that was the case I should have been told ahead of time so I could make other arrangements. I was forced to purchase one., NOT THE PLAN

If you check in ahead of time, you should not have to still wait in line. Someone should be called to give you the keys and final details since they already have the information required.

I reserved a dolly and was given a hand-truck and then was told the hand-truck WAS a dolly, and that they were out of real dollys. And when I asked 'what about these right here?' I was told they were only for sale. So I paid $7.00 for a hand truck that I didn't really need. Also, there was only one person helping customers, and even though I reserved the truck on-line I had to wait in a long line behind customers that were not even sure what size vehicle they needed and wait while they decided how many boxes they wanted.

The staff is friendly and hard-working. But there is not nearly enough parking or staffing, for the business volume. We got the last parking space on a Sunday morning, by sheer luck. Then waited 30 minutes in line to pick up our 10' reserved truck. When we arrived at our moving location, we found that the utility dolly that we had ordered was not in the truck. And 3 of 12 blankets ordered were missing. The staff is friendly and hard-working. But the place is understaffed.

have a staff member with CPR training available at all sites, That way, when a customer like me who doesn't move heavy objects is having a heart attack or stroke, they can be revived. Seriously.

I was picking up an open trailer , your staff member insisted that he needed to connect the trailer to the vehicle hitch . He grabbed the trailer with one hand and pulled it towards the vehicle lost control and ended up damaging the tail gate off vehicle . There was know manager on site and I had to all the phoning to your insurance company . You need to train your staff in connecting trailers .

Keep your word on pricing! Not charge more than what was quoted ! Get better people to work for you or pay them more! None of them looked or acted like they wanted to be there !! That's a Shame !!

The truck rental was ok but the representative on the phone told me that there was 1st floor storage which was absolutely untrue. It was very inconvenient & ended up costing me extra miles & an extra day on the truck just to drive to the supposed 1st floor storage space which did not exist.

I don't like the billing system, where you have to estimate the miles you'll be driving. When we returned the van, we weren't charged for actual miles. I'm still not sure (three days later) what we actually paid for the rental.
