Everything was great. Everyone was professional and thorough. My rental was ready on time. The vehicle ran great. Drop off was a breeze.

When a rental is requested at a location do not change pickup to different location. When items are reserved make sure requested quantities are available at pickup location. Ensure AC works prior to renting out equipment. Was told that AC was not part of the inspection when equipment is returned, it should especially since the equipment is advertised as having AC in multiple places.

My reservation was at the wrong location. I specifically asked for the location that was closest to the area that I was going to be near that afternoon. When I found out they messed up and sent it to the above location, i got caught in a storm making the drive further. They did not have my reservation once I got there - so the wait was over an hour. Employees were wonderful, but the overall process of reserving your equipment was unsatisfactory to say the least.

Beware of this place. I replaced the fuel and was very careful to make sure that it was where it was when I picked it up. When returning the truck they charged me for gas saying that I did not replace the fuel. They run a scam on their customers here. After reading other's reviews I see this is a pattern. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I was the only customer there, however it took 15 minutes to check out, even though I had reserved the U-Haul online and filled out all my information. When I first arrived one of the employees was busy typing up a personal e-mail (which I had the pleasure of standing around watching him type with ONE FINGER...really, and it took about 5 minutes, we were all just looking over his shoulder). After he finished his personal business he started the long process of "one finger" typing all my information into the system (which seems pointless since I already filled out all of my information on line, including if I wanted the insurance, dollies, etc). I almost walked out of the place without my U-Haul I was so pissed. Not to mention, I heard one of the employees call me a b*tch when I was still in the parking lot. It was so bad that I literally did not feel comfortable leaving my Cadillac in the parking lot, and instead chose to park it about a quarter mile away in a mini-mall parking lot. DO NOT USE THIS LOCATION FOR YOUR U-HAUL NEEDS! I have used U-Hauls 5+ times and have NEVER experienced anything like this before. This review has nothing to do with U-Haul and everything to do with the customer service of THIS LOCATION!

The only issue we had was when we had to request an extension for the second time. The woman who answered was unpleasant and demanded we give an exact time we would be done. We could not do this due to unforeseen interruptions. This woman caused us so much stress that we forgot to fill up the gas before returning the truck. Prior to dealing with this woman we had a wonderful experience with the male workers who gave us no problems at all. I do not know if this woman was a manager or not but she was nasty and nearly caused my 78yr old mother a heart attack.

We were subjected to a flat tire on our trip. It also leaked water. The tire in question had very little tread. We had to use FIX-A-Flat on the tire to return from the trip. This was a long trip, over 350 miles one way.
