This facility needs a renovation. The building really looked run down. The people were friendly.

We needed a cargo van @ noon. They were unable to accommodate us until 4:30. All was fast easy and very happy

Truck rental kept changing, from 48hrs, to 24hrs, to 6 hrs. While this was unfortunate, I appreciate the flexibility of getting a bigger truck for the same rate and extending my time at no extra charge when severe weather delayed my move.

Manager was texting on his cell phone while checking people out. Very unprofessional

The staff were extremely helpful. However they were unable to print off the contract that had been issued. I had hoped to get a hard copy from somewhere.

I only rated the location average overall because I was told I could keep the truck until 7 PM. I pulled into the return location at 6:55 PM. I waited for 5 minutes as the sign instructed for a representative to come check the truck in. At 7, I walked into the store and spoke with a woman who informed me they were closed and I just needed to drop the keys in the drop box. I inquired whether it would cost me anything additional and she again replied we are closed. I was frustrated at this point and said I was here for five minutes before I came into the store and no one bothered to come check me in. She replied, we had customers in here and we are closed now do just drop the keys in the box. Seriously, she couldn't take five minutes to acknowledge me as a customer or to answer my question.

Inspection should be helpful before renting the trailer or truck. When i reached to pick up the trailer the system was down, when I started the towing did not feel good so l stared inspecting the trailer and noticed one of the the tire was punctured and no air in it, and other tire on same side of the trailer had 20 PSI tire pressure Normally it should be 65PSI.

Thanks -- the crew was very professional and handled the influx of people all trying to get their equipment at the same time very well.

It was a long wait to get serviced. There were 3 employees working and only 1 helping when I checked in. She took a while to help the person in line ahead of me but then when she started helping me she stopped briefly to go run outside to check on something without even explaining what was going on. Then when I checked back in I was told I'd be receiving a refund for not using the entire amount of the deposit, I'm still waiting on that so I will call as a very angry customer tomorrow if it isn't in there yet

Uhaul needs to focus on better coordination between headquarters & satellite locations. I had a horrible experience trying to reserve a truck. I was proactive in reserving my truck 5 months in advance to ensure that I had the size, location, & pick up time necessary for my move. However, I was given the run around by 2 rental locations & headquarters all because of poor intrenal communication. So my overall suggestion is improve your internal communication & scheduling.

The customer service was horrible. It took 30 minutes to take care of me. One of the ladies was walking around talking on the phone without helping any of the customers

Pick up time was scheduled for 9:00 am Sunday. The haul employee did not arrive until 9:30 am to open the store and our move was delayed. Several other customers were also waiting and the 800 number was unable to contact a backup employee. When the employee arrived she then complained that so many customers had been scheduled for a 9:00 am pickup.

Manager was great. Multi-tasking a lot of customers, yet very personable. Space to maneuver was a bit small, but otherwise, excellent!

The two wheel cart was too short to be used properly or effictivly, especially on stairs. Non-pneumatic wheels added to the difficulty of use.

First, my reservation was suppose to be for pickup at 6:15 on Saturday night. On Friday I got a call saying it wouldn't be available until 9am Sunday morning. I showed up at 9am and the store was still closed. No one showed up to open the store until almost 9:30. About 10 customers were also waiting with me to get their reservations. The trailer I was then suppose to take had a flat tire. I told the lady to cancle my reservation as she did not know what to do about the tire being flat. Worst rental experience of my life, I will certainly never to business with that U-Haul location again, and probably never with U-Haul again.

Was very pleased with the service at this location - staff were all friendly, helpful & informative - I was contacted when they indicated I would be, and the equipment was ready when we arrived for pickup. All in all, very good experience.

Never rented from this location before. Wasn't happy some mileage wasn't included. I usually rent from budget and will definitely go there next time.

Like every othe U-Haul place I have been it appears this one is short on staff. Hiring signs are displayed, but why can't U-Haul hire and keep enough good people?

Very friendly helpful agent. They were busy but he managed to act unhurried. No problems.

The power locks on the van would not lock from drivers door I had to manually walk around van & secure each door. Otherwise the van was excellent.
