Jim Desmond who works in the yard was incredible. He was one of the most courteous and efficient service people I have ever witnessed. He was a dynamo as he moved people through the very quick checkin procedure.

There seemed to be alot of employees standing around which made the time to sign paperwork and actually receive the truck all the more confusing

I originally requested another pick-up location but as my move was one-way they informed me that I may need to pick up the truck at another location. No one contacted me to tell me which location I was supposed to get my truck at so I had to call around to track it down. Someone should have called or at least emailed me with the info the morning of my move or the day before. Beyond that this location was very organized and prompt. I got the truck and was out of there in 10 minutes or so, maybe less.

When I returned my vehicle Jim Desmond was there to greet me. He did an exceptional job of expediting the return process. He was extremely professional and focused on making this processes as pleasant as possible. Unfortunately, the other individuals working the yard were far from professional or courteous. Their attitudes and demeanor were unfit for an professional setting. If everyone was as respectful as Jim I would come back to this location

Everyone was friendly and efficient, especially the guy who moved the truck for me and got me the dolly. The woman at the desk was very efficient but told me multiple times that I could *not* drop my equipment off at Salem the next day, even though that was what my online reservation said. When I asked questions about this she insisted that wasn't an option -- which would have been fine, but the next morning when I called the location she'd told me I had to go to, they told me I had to go to Salem. Soooo I'm not sure what happened there. It might not even be her mistake, it might have been a technology issue, but it was incredibly inconvenient to be told I had to drop it off somewhere 10 min away then be told at the last minute I had to go somewhere an hour away.

When I rented the UHAUL I actually requested one utility trolley and a furniture trolley but i did not received. So i guess just try to make sure the things are in place when a customer picks it up.

Keep Jaime and Tayron!!! These two are absolute keepers! They go so far above and beyond that I would refer my family, friends and anyone I encounter to use U-Haul at this location. Jaime was so helpful that she was checking in with me to make sure I was okay and if I needed any assistance. She even called me the next day to see how I was. Such an amazing experience and two fabulous workers that I was fortunate to have worked with. Thank you!

This location is excellent! I recommend that all locations model themselves after it. Thank you especially to Jorge, Yesika, Luis, and Lance; they are invaluable employees. They made the move smooth and were extremely accommodating. Everything was accomplished because of the employees mentioned above and my family and I appreciate all that they did for us.

There are at least 5 locations closer to my address, but even booking 2 months ahead, no trucks were available. Is it just to charge for additional miles?

I called the day before the return day to extend my return time. The guy said I can return by 2pm then there will be no problem. This was not documented and I was forced to pay one day extension. So unfair!!

I was charged 2 times. $80.00 at check-in and another $55.00 at Check out. When will I get the $80.00 check in refund? Best regards, Neal Babcock

I had a fantastic experience at this Uhaul location. Despite the busy moving time of the year everything went extremely smoothly. Jim Desmond, my associate was fantastic. He helped me into the truck and got me set on my way and he was also there to receive me at the end of my reservation. His customer service was exceptional. I will definitely be using Uhaul for my future moves!

I wish I had gotten the name of the man that helped me but I had an issue with the 2" ball and he fixed it. It came lose at some point on my trip from Maryland to Boston and this was not discovered until in Boston. I had to unhitch the trailer temporarily and had great difficulty hooking it back up, probably due to the issue with the ball. The Boston UHaul person found that the ball had been improperly installed (by UHaul) and was missing the locking/retaining pin. Had the nut fallen off, I could have experienced a catastrophic event on my trip, possibly resulting in death of any one behind me or even myself or my daughter, not to mention the loss of her belongings. The hitch, receiver, ball and lighting were purchased by me from UHaul in 2012 and installed by the UHaul on Allentown Road near Camp Springs, MD. I had to get the lighting redone (by my local KIA dealer) because the lighting equipment failed within a year. Now to have the issue with the ball on top of that is not acceptable. Unfortunately, there are no other options when renting small trailers for personal moving as there is not competition. I am contemplating legal action to at the minimum get the cost of my last rental fully refunded.

While there is an afterhours drop box for keys/contracts, there was little available/safe parking for the vehicle and trailer that we were leaving. Also, the neighborhood is highly trafficked even late at night and I felt a bit insecure leaving an unlocked trailer/truck box, and gas cap there unsupervised.
