I had reserved a truck with another company, who called 1/2 hour before pick-up time to say they didn't have a truck. Thought my move was ruined, but U-haul had a truck available right away, no hassles, no large deposit charged to my credit card, and they were very helpful.

I just wanted to say I was very pleased with my experience, both in the store and on the road. The trailer I rented this occasion performed flawlessly. In my years of periodically renting moving equipment I have never had any mechanical issues with any U-Haul vehicle and I am very thankful for that. My streak is still going and I thank you!

The location is excellent. Good and knowledgeable staff. The trucks are hit or miss. Sometimes you get a good one and sometimes you don't.

The same person helped us when we picked up and dropped off. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, but she was extremely helpful and courteous, even when we had to returned our uhaul late. Everybody else we overheard helping customers while we were there also seemed very helpful and polite. I'd recommend this location for their awesome employees alone.

Our check in experience was great. The young man behind the counter was nice, courteous, and helpful. However, our dropoff was quite the opposite. We pulled in around 4:30pm, just as the guy who helped us was getting off work, leaving us in the hands of the most rudist young lady ever. She had a "holier than thou" attitude, and seemed to think talking back to customers was appropriate. Our day was stressful enough, having to listen to rude comments from a "customer service representative" was a bit much. I did mention that to her after we completed the transaction, but was met with a flip " I don,'t give a shit what you're saying" response. When I told my wife about what I went through, as we drove away, she said that she witnessed and overheard this girl treating another couple the same way outside while I was checking in, leaving them just as angered. I feel that this person should either be counseled in customer service, or, kept outside sweeping the parking lot and washing equipment. I'm sorry to say that I was too frustrated to get her name. All I can say is: she's a young black girl, who worked the evening shift on Sept. 14, 2015. Other than that, you guys are great, we've always rented from you over the past years. Your on the phone reps have always been great, too! I'm sorry to say, this was our first experience with a " Bad Apple".

I feel that I was over charged for the service and when I called the charges could not be explained to me.

Erica was an outstanding customer service professional at this location. She represented the U-Haul company and brand with the highest level of dedication to making the customer experience exceptional! She should be praised/recognized for her performance!

They worked well with us and we were able to pick up equipment early. Drop off was a breeze also.

I rented several times over the years from this store and had no problems any of the times. The personnel was both professional and very helpful. The store is very clean and well organized. Would recommed this store to family and friends and even strangers. Thanks for making all my moves a success.

Ashley was absolutely rude, arrogant, and indifferent. She spoke so fast that I had to have her repeat things.She left me waiting at the office and went off to get the trailer. I wondered what happened. When I told her this she said, I told you to follow me. The manager at this location and the young woman who received the trailer back were perfect employees.

First off my reservation was for a 17' truck and I was made to take a 20'. Not only did I have to go way out of my way to pick this up, my reservation obviously was not what I was guaranteed. The inside of the cab had trash all underneath the seats, and to top it off the inside of the truck hauling area was filthy! This has been my worst experience in all the times I have rented from uhaul! The truck cost me even more in gas than the 26' I rented approximately 2 weeks prior. Ridiculous! I am Very Disappointed in this rental with the Uhaul Company!

Only one employee working with a lot of returns. One employee sat there saying they were not clocked in.
