Central reservations did not call me that truck and dolly were available, apparently texts messages were sent. I do not do check texts. I called and confirmed equipment would be available and ready to go at designated time. Was assured it would be. Hired helpers to help load vehicle. On arrival nothing was connected, original tow dolly blew up fuses in tow vehicle and it took almost 45 minutes at the location to get equipment. First I hate dealing with a central reservation system who can't give me a yes or no, and second when I confirm equipment will be ready and waiting, hire 2 helpers, and arrive to find nothing has been done and equipment is faulty, I'm left with a bad view of U-Haul and an empty pocketbook. The local agent says they never do have equipment ready to go until a customer arrives, even if reserved and a credit card reservation is made to guarantee it.

Not enough parking. I took bus, but driving customers blocked lanes so I had to come inside and tell employees I was back.

Trailer needs a tongue jack. It is way to heavy for a person to lift. It took 2 BIG guys to drop it on the ball.

I had rented from the Archer Rd U-Haul and expected to pick up the truck from there, however I was told that my truck was on main street. It was disappointing to have to drive across town to get it.

Watch out for the pig-tail extensions. The one they used with me was bad resulting in a delay in checking my wiring and then the tow dolly before figuring it out.

There is a need for more lot space to house the various pieces of equipment. Due to this very favorable location, an investment in some adjacent property would seem to be well worth the money.

To far for drop-off, should be able to drop-off at any U-Haul location. Added additional 10 miles to bill?

Had problems with phone first time I called said to hold on hold get a few moments then call disconnected. I gave up the first day and called back the next and nothing wrong the next time.

This place is very professional and we were met outside by the personal that unhooked the trailer. We didn’t even have to get out of the car. Thank you for the service.

I will say that the location seemed pretty busy and perhaps understaffed. While I understand that it's hard to find good help and I was not frustrated or impatient, some customers would probably have been happier with faster service. But the employees there were friendly, helpful, and thorough.

Reserved a trailer for 9AM on 3 May. Received a text on 2 May that I had to have an inspection at 1PM. Had to leave family event to go to inspection. Person there looked at my hitch. I HAD to show him the wiring for the lights, and the ball. He never looked to see what size it was. Then I was told that the trailer, which was on the lot, would not be available until 10AM on 3 May. So for the second time I had to adjust my plans to accomadate UHaul. Why not a clause when making the reservation that states that when you arrive and do not have the proper equipment you will not be able to rent the trailer.

I proceeded to explain my situation, to the U-Haul manager, and she wanted nothing to do with me, except my credit card info so she could charge me, and passed the buck off to someone else. It wasn't her issue, she claimed!

I ordered a furniture dolly with the truck. However, I did not receive it. I had to return to the store later to get it.
