Good, no issues, the truck was not clean enough in the back when I received, but this experience is really good. Thanks!

Good experience over all. One issue to improve on. We had a 9:30 am pick up. Place was busy. Had to wait for 30 minutes to get my rental truck.

Got charged additional 6.50 and not sure why. Guy was to busy taking care of other uhaul and car wash customers instead of helping me.

Great rental experience. Everything went smooth from pick up to drop off. Van was perfect size for our needs. And was new and well maintained.

After I returned the car. I guess I didn't fill it all the way so then the guy that checked the car came in and started yelling at me because the tank was little put short. I get it they got a business to run. But it's really rude to walk in and start yelling at a customer. Then so I took the car again and went to fill it up more and guess what it only needed 2$ more. When I came back the lady at the front desk (she was really nice) apologized for that mans action, and said it was hut husband, so I am assuming he is the owner. So I think if you are the owner and you are screaming at the customer I wonder what your workers will do. If I need to go rent a car again I will make sure I go to a different one where they have better customer surves. Finally the truk was not clean and smelled like cigarettes, so I think before renting the car again, after it's returned they should make sure to take out all the cigaret things clean them and put something to make the truck smells good.

Inside the truck was in disrepair. Globe box was broken wouldn't stay locked. Driver seatbelt shoulder strap wouldn't pull tight against the body. The air conditioning blew out warm air. The truck leaked some type of fluid (oil I believe) on to the driveway and caused damage to the driveway. Overall, this experience was very disappointing. Staff was nice when picking up but the truck was a nightmare.

Ten foot truck ran great, easy to drive and fit my moving needs to perfection. Location could improve parking space. Web site should indicate that ten foot truck must be returned to original rental location.

The owner is the rudest person ever. Absolutely crass, coarse and belligerent. A very poor representation of U haul. I found it very derogatory when he used the term " I don't like you people" and he was offensive. I will never go back nor refer that location ever . As the chairman of a 1000 family strong ethnic association I am thinking strongly of letting all know the rude treaent I recieved. If you would like further information please feel free to contact me directly at the phone number in my contract . I walked out of there disgusted not only at the "don't care" attitude to my business ( however small it may be) and the rudeness from the word get go till the end. He did not look at my contract but instead accused me of wrong doing and when I proved he was wrong he turned hostile and raised his voice. It was his responsibility to either look at the contract and/ or verify with the other location. He made me do the work and then blamed me for having an attitude - wow! I will wait to hear a response from all of you if not I may consider other avenues like social media to expose what a uhaul location should not be like. What a contrast between two locations - the Chicago last went out of her way and this one does not care for customers and is belligerent & insulting. Wow

The person that lives above the storage unit has bull terriers that she doesn't keep on a leash. When I was exiting the building to go to me car, both dogs ran under the fence and raced towards me. I screamed. The owner made no attempt to call the dogs back nor did management come outside tohelp. Horriblet experience.
