More cheerful associates. She was just straight; not rude or nasty but also not warm and friendly. Just regular which I think could be better

Sometimes there is a bit of a wait. For example, I was in line for a good 10 minutes. However, staff were professional and friendly!

Charge what you quote, and have the reserved equipment ready for people, especially when they have called the day before to confirm.

Very slow in check in. The line had about 5 people and only one person checking folks in.

Employees didn't know how to access my Ubox reservation online. I sat in the store for over an hour while employees talked to 800 support techs on the phone going over every single step. Employees had no consideration to customers and were outright disrespectful. They simply don't care about their job and one even told me "I hate working here". Once my move is finished I will never give one dime to Uhaul again and will be sure to tell everyone I know about my experience and insist they use another company. Your employees attitude is a direct image to how a company operates and is paramount in an industry that boast many other competitors. Things need to be changed at this location.

The dollies out for rent are not in very good shape, and had mismatched replacement parts, etc. Getting good, sturdy rental equipment would help. Otherwise, the location was fine, drop off after hours was simple.

The line to be helped was quite long; maybe this location could use more staff.

the line to pick up a vehicle was very long. It may have helped to have another associate assisting customers.

When I arrived to pick up the truck, there was no one there to assist. Myself and 2 other customers had to search all over the building, as well as outside, to find the staff. We even went into the employee lounge area and bathrooms to look. Eventually, the other customer that was waiting was able to find someone somewhere outside after about 5 minutes. It was a waste of customer's time in addition to it being unsafe for Uhaul. If we were dishonest customers, we could have stolen a lot of merchandise in the time we were left alone in the store.

I have to say that Guy and the other gentleman who was working on 9/28/14 were both very helpful, polite and a pleasure to work with.
