Service person was great. He was wery helpful and customer friendly. Pad lock on back was not operational. Driver side door lock was tough to unlock.

We have used this location several times in the past year. They are wonderful to deal with. Always so nice and helpful. Now that we have moved there is a closer UHaul store but we will continue to use this one. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

I had reserved a truck and a flat bed trailer to pull with my car on it. The trailer was not written on the order form for some reason so they didn't have one. I had to drive to Ames in the Uhsul to pick up a trailer.

The truck and paperwork didn't match up. The next day I was called about the truck I rented was still missing however I had returned it the day before at 7:30pm. Also I was charged for 80 miles even though I only drove 65. Overall an unorganized and poorly ran location.

My initial representative (I believe his name was Rick) was more than helpful! I will definately recommend your location due to the great service I received.

There is only one way to enter the location and the equipment drop off blocks customer parking

Our check-in took a long time, due to one person doing everything from checking everyone in and consistently having to go out and get thetrucks. Not the associates fault, just understaffed. The check out process was quick. Both helping us were nice.

The truck was clean, but someone had been smoking in it. No big deal.. just letting you know.

I stopped in earlier on Friday and the line was 6 customers deep -- with only 1 staffer to check them out. I left. I dread going into this store -- not clean, always long waits. When I spoke to the woman at this location (by phone) she was rude and condescending. She was no help at all, until I got a call from the Traffic Department. They helped me get the van I wanted, but I had to go to Ames to get it.

I had reservations and did not get the truck that was needed! I ended up with a way smaller truck! I am very disappointed in u-haul, not so much the location they tried everything possible to get me what I needed but unfortunately their hands were tied YOUR so called TRAFFIC is a joke! I called a week in advance to get a truck with no avail! J

Could use a better way to exit parking lot. Got my trailer unhooked and my receipt fast and had very courteous attendant. Definitely recommend this location.

Excellent customer service. The truck did not have as much gas as I was told, and was discovered by the staff that an incorrect number had been assigned to the truck. An adjustment on the gas was much appreciated.Thanks.
