There needs to be more than one customer service agent at the desk. I stood in line waiting for service for about 20 minutes because there was no one else working.

We talked to 2 different people and explained that we wanted to put all charges on one credit card and despite clear communication it did not happen. Frustrating.

If a long handle broom was available to remove snow off the windshield, would have been most considerate. I didn't mind removing it but I used the sleeve of my coat and I didn't have any gloves. The snow was wet and heavy ,so I kind of sort of got drenched before I started out. STILL A HAPPY & satisfied customer though because UHAUL was available when other modes of transportation were NO WHERE to be found, Allowing me to continue on with my plans and get to my destination. Thanks UHAUL! My return experience was even more Rewarding and I am truly Thankful for an A-TEAM staff.

What I've noticed is the staff. They continue to be polite towards all that enter the doors. If there happens to be a line they soothe customers by saying I will be with you shortly . Lately I've seen two staffers helping customers guiding them through "checkout" and I know that customers feel respected ,knowing that the time spent at U-Haul won't be "FOREVER" when they are there trying to get someplace , embarking a JOURNEY in their U-Haul. Thank U- ALL !

Everything was fine except there was a leak in the can we used. It came from the screw on the passenger side sun visor

The place was o.k. The drop off was relatively easy. Your survey should give more options besides "yes," "no" and "not applicable." How about, "a little helpful" and "mostly helpful"?

Wonderful experience. Big pluses to the representative at counter that helped me. She was a positive up beat personable woman that calmed my moving stress.

I have trouble with my back and legs. There was a line and I cannot stand for long periods of time. There should be chairs available to sit on. Other than that, the people were friendly, explained everything so you understood, and supplies like locks, boxes, bubble paper were available for purchase.

Due to weather conditions and schools opening late I had to change my reserved time twice. I was able to change my time with no problem at all. The truck was ready and clean. I always use this location with no issues.

When I got there, they did not have my reservation. I called that location the previous day, and a woman there told me she was switching my reservation back to that location at 4857 Chestnut St and she wasn't sure why someone had switched me because they had a truck available for me. When I got there the next morning, there were no trucks available for me and I waited almost an hour for one to become available. Because of that, I have to pay the moving company for a whole extra hour.
