The person checking us in was very rushed, and didn't give us much instruction. When we brought the uhaul back, we parked in the wrong place because we had no instruction. The person accepting the uhaul back wasn't happy with us because of where we parked.

Vehicle pickup could be faster - but I suppose then two agents would need to be present. As is, lines, lots of paperwork, and confusion about parking options etc can make pickup a pretty drawn-out process.

I've had my storage unit for about a year and I didn't have any complaints or issues with my unit. The prices are reasonable and staff members are very friendly and honest! This was my first time having to rent out a storage unit. One thing I liked about Affordable Self Storage is that they check to make sure all locks are on correctly at each unit. One day I apparently didn't lock my unit correctly and I was called by a gentleman (forgot his name & he was also the one who helped my bf and I apply and did a walk around the property of the different sizes to choose from) stating that my lock wasn't on correctly. Luckily I was still in town and I went back to correctly lock my unit. Thank you for your time and honestly!

Staff are friendly and professional, however the truck was not cleaned well. Upon receiving the truck I could smell a strong odor of marijuana in the cab and back. I eventually located a marijuana joint in the cup holder in the cab.

Everything about the place was Wonderful! Only problem that i had per se was the "hidden costs". You should not even "advertise" such low rates because your "hidden costs" are "exorbitant" and this practice is "deceitful." Everyone expects to have to pay these, but not so much as it actually adds up to? Cmon. Be Up and Up? From $19.95 to $119.00 and that's not including the gas fillup? Wow! The Public would appreciate numbers that are much more "realistic" so they can make better decision on how to haul their items? Whether or not it is worth their money, to do so...

The people were great. The truck was clean though the trailer lights connection was useless for hauling a standard trailer. Such a huge cost and waste of time. While your very kind employee said, "I'm sorry" multiple times, he also said he could do nothing about it and make no adjustments. A great truck, just not for my needs. Mahalo for asking. Aloha
