The staff were great, very friendly and accommodating, but the location is a dump! Dirty, old, no elevator, entrance to load the unit was on the opposite side of the building, which you cannot get to from the parking lot and have to drive around the block and come back to access. There were two bullet holes in the glass next to the last door that entered the level where the unit is. I am not looking forward to going back to retrieve my stuff from the unit, but I will be happy once my belongings are no longer in this shithole. Despite the poor condition of the overall location, I want to reiterate that the staff were awesome!!

The service I received from Erica was excellent! Erica was able to ensure the trailer I needed was available on short notice, which was a tremendous help! Erica also proved to be extremely knowledgable of the equipment and procedures, being able to identify precisely where each trailer and truck was located on the lot merely by it's I.D. number. Erica was very courteous, not only to me, but to all the other customers that were in the store at the same time. Erica did a great job handling multiple customers at the same time, in addition to being able to clearly explain all the details of how U-Haul works to customers who seemed to be unfamiliar. Erica also took the time between customers to ensure I was good to go after my trailer was hooked up. I was very pleased with the service I received and look forward to returning to that location the next time I need moving equipment.

Though the facility is average, our service associate was really very professional! She was so polite and efficient. Nice to see in a college town.

We only needed the van to move a desk that we just bought, and we only used it for about an hour. $50 seems like a lot of money for how little we used the van. I would suggest charging customers less if they go under a certain mileage or time limit. We probably won't use Uhaul again unless really needed due to how expensive it is.

Truck had obviously been abused, likely by other renters. Appeared to be very old, but had only 6000 miles on the odometer! Not likely U-Hauls fault, but very sad to see.

The truck itself was defective. Both of the break systems failed during the trip. Truck was extremely unsafe.

The employee that was at the counter was extremely rude, he had no customer service skills and argumentative. He made assumptions and tried to argue with me about my online reservation. I will NEVER use this location again

We were a little upset that we couldn't get a refund for the dozen blankets that we didn't use. We didn't even open the bags but were told that since we paid for them as "part of the contract" there was nothing they could do for us.

Very easy, priced competitively... I'll be renting trailers again, for many more things than just moving... Quite pleased with my U-Haul experience!

I had one question for your attendant...did the wheel well protrude into the hauling area of the truck, she said NO! That was inaccurate, that was something I felt she should know!

This location did well, HOWEVER, this is not the location where the truck was supposed to be. The location we had our reservation with did not have the truck and sent us here. We were offered a $10 discount...which MAY have covered the extra miles but not the time and aggravation. Also, I thought there was a $50 gurrantee what a customer orders would be ready?
