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.

I reserevd a 6' x 12' trailer on line last week. When i got there, I was only able to get a 5' x 10' trailer. and the intereetsing part is they are the same price. If they are the same price, why have two sizes!! what's up? and if I go on the site today, both are available but teh store says they have no larger trailers. the smaller ones tehy have suck very old, leak and shoudl be retired!!!

I was so pleased with the "pre-arrangement" call... FAST EFFICIENT Encourage... HELPFUL location manager.... He truly lets you know you have made the correct choice in personal moving transportation... He took time to make sure i was comfortable returning the truck and keys in... He was busy but he still made me feel "noticed"... yes, this is my 4th or 5th time using this rental company.... I made the MISTAKE of TRYING another....NEVER AGAIN... Plan ahead ... or WAIT til I can receive the BEST.... Thank You for asking my input....
