The staff were very courteous and very knowledgable. The equipment worked fine. I was a little put off that I waited in line almost 30 minutes to pick up the vehicle I had reserved. I was there exactly when I said I would be. Also, the lot was so full when I returned the vehicle that I couldn't even pull into the parking lot. Again, I was almost 20 minutes waiting when I returned it. I know I might have been there at a really busy time. But I thought the wait time was a little excessive. Otherwise it was a good experience.

Thus is for the store at University of Flirida. Main and 8th Ave. Paid for dolly. Get the truck home. Guess what? No dolly. Did a live chat with customer service as I didn't want to be charged for "missing" equipment. She told me she would make a note in my contract to have my $7 refunded. I explained to her that the $7 is not going to load heavy appliances and furniture into a truck for me. Then she said she would leave another note in my contract to be "compensated" in some way. My husband goes to return truck and walks into the office one minute before they close to explain the situation. The jerk tells my husband to drop the keys on the floor and get out. So my husband did. The next morning, we get our receipt emailed to us and guess what? We were charged for the dolly and no compensation. Customer service on the phone was great, but I would go with another company in the future. Big no-no U-Haul. Lost a customer today. But, I'm sure you don't care. :)

I would recommend this location because they have a variety of trucks and trailers. My trailer was rusty, and did not hold what it was promised to. I have rented the same size trailer in the past, and fit my items, but this was an older trailer, with a different door, and my items did not fit. This made my move very difficult and time consuming. I am not pleased at all

Find some more space as I had to park across the street until several other units were moved to pull in and return the trailer. In all fairness it was a Monday morning.

Once again, no issues with either location, just on-line system was supposed to tell me where the drop-off of the trailer would be. That didn't happen. I had to call to find out where "I agreed" to drop off trailer.

Only problem was the parking lot only had one entrance and was difficult to get in and out. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Not enough people working a busy Saturday morning. To long of a wait. People friendly

The only negative thing I could say would be that there never seems to be enough people behind the counter to wait on customers. Once you get there I was very pleased with the guy that helped me out. Very help and good at what he does.

The person who used the cargo van before me had a big smelly dog with them inside the van. The seats were covered with dog hair and the inside of the van reeked like dirty dog and dog pee. The smell was so bad I had to do the entire move with the windows down.

Wonderful experience! I was desperate and needed help fast... Family was in a bind. It was after 6:00 pm and I needed a trailer. I was VERY happy with the staff and the respect and kindness I received. I cannot thank them enough! God bless y'all!

Location was closed on drop off, but the place looked very clean, and organized, was well lit, with loads of cameras for security. I wasn't even scared while unhooking the trailer.

Driving the truck was very rough and shaky. It felt as if it would not go into gear and took forever to move forward. It was NOT a smooth ride. Would have expected better of Uhaul.
