We were very glad to have such a quick and efficient truck drop-off experience. We loved being able to return the truck quickly in the outside rental truck return area, without even having the step inside. The associate that helped us check back in was also very friendly.

I reserved a trailer and scheduled the free inspection session. We arrived at the location for inspection site and it was a big mess. The guy who was supposed to inspect my car was there but was busy with other customers and he kept us there for an hour. I had to cancel the trailer and I rented a truck from another location. It was a very bad experience and very unprofessional employees

Assistance with finding the correct rental on the lot at the pick up time would be helpful. Do not rush the customers off of the premises during the drop off experience.

It seems as if this location is short staffed. Upon returning my equipment, I was instructed by a sign to wait with the equipment for a customer service representative to come out to me. After waiting about 10 minutes, no one came out, so I went inside. The sign should be modified to reflect the actual process for returning equipment so people aren't just waiting around. Overall, I had a great experience. The woman who created & closed out my reservation was very professional & answered all of my questions. Thus location needs to hire more people like her.
