I had rented my site for 3 years. At first I was happy but when owners changed, it went down hill. All the manager talks about is covid the whole time he is blowing cigarette smoke in your face. My site was broken into this month and I was surprised to discover you had fake cameras. Glad I have a new secure place.

No security no account for who comes in and out. Parking lot has giant pot holes no excuse for this. My biggest issue is the gate being open all the time

We rented for 3 years with no problems. Then we noticed that the installation in the roof was falling in places. Then we noticed mice droppings on our boxes and floor. We were offered another unit so the one we were in could be renovated. We appreciated the offer, but we decided to move to another facility closer to our home. I am sure the problem was solved and everything is OK now. That happens with outside access units.

We were told to return the rental at BCBfarms. After driving there we were told that they no longer have a UHaul contract. We then had to retured to a different place, which was a Shell station on the corner of route14 and 113. It would be nice to know the correct turn in place from the start. Other then that it was a pleasant experience.

I scheduled a 4pm pick up time(4:15 was also an available option). I was called at 12:30 asking me to come get it then. I was told “U-Haul is not the only thing I have to do and I don't allow pick ups after 4 because I have to run around after work and it messes up my afternoon. This is a storage facility and that is the priority here. U-Haul is just extra, okay?” I told the man that I couldn't get there until around 4, but I was happy to cancel and find another location that could accommodate my needs. I was then told that the my trailer (5x9 utility trailer) was very rare (actual he had at least 2 on the lot) and it would be fine but I needed to get there as early as possible. I went ahead with the reservation. Once I arrived (at 3:38pm), I was told (by the same man from the phone) “I am glad you got here when you did.” I also inquired about buying ratchet straps and I was told that they would be much cheaper down the road, but he agreed to sell them to me. He made me shout my credit card number from the door (because of social distancing) but took my license for the rental info. This whole endeavor took about 30+ minutes. He was shouting commands from the start and yelling to cut my car off (because “he smokes cigarettes, not car fumes”). He wasn't exactly rude the whole time, but made it clear that I was putting him out by renting a U-Haul from him. I will NOT rent from this location again (which is a shame because I frequent the campground near by and could utilize this location for traveling with my golf cart.

Can't think of anything that could improve what I see as excellent service that John provides. I've rented a 6 x 12 trailer from this location more then 6 times since the beginning of March. Always accommodating.

I asked the guy if I could drop off in conway and not drive back to surfside. He said yes, I tried to drop off in conway the guy said it wasn't on my contract which by the way wasn't hard copy it was in my email. Wasn't offered a hard copy. If I left it in conway I would have to pay double. Called UHaul they said that I couldnt leave it. You should tell your employee in Surfside not to lie. I would have got the truck at the UHaul in conway which is only 3 miles from my home and dropped it back there had he told me that I would have to pay double if I dropped in conway. Its also sad that the guy in conway said if uhaul says I can drop it there he wouldn't charge me double. Like I said I called and they told me no. I would not recommend uhaul to anyone due to the lies that were told to me. Uhaul made close to $80 off me.

John Ferguson was extremely helpful when I arrived to pick up the ramp utility trailer I had reserved. After explaining and completing the paperwork, John hitched the trailer up to my car and explained everything about the trailer to me. John was very pleasant and easy to work with. I would rent from him again.

I've rented from this location for years when Pete had it. Never had any issues. The new manager I think his name is John. He needs a attitude adjustment. Him getting hot under the collar is no way to operate a business. When I called to question why I was charged 2 days instead of 1. He got a attitude and started yelling. So I proceeded to tell him that I would go over his head and get it worked out. Then he has the nerve to tell a Company Manager for Uhaul that he doesnt want me back in that location renting any of "his" equipment. No worries I wouldn't step back in that place if I had to. I would rather carry what I have to move on my back as to give that location anymore of my money. I fully intend on making my experience here at this location be known . And spread the word on how badly you treat and speak to your paying customers. And as far as what you can do to improve for the next customer....get a new Manager or put a muzzle on the managers mouth...

The man who runs this location was horrible. My husband and I tried without success to park the trailer exactly where he wanted us to. We left a note telling him this. He called me and was yelling at me for not putting it exactly where he wanted it. When my husband went back there to move it he continued to yell at him. All he had to do was ask us to come back for him to direct us how to park it. There was no need for him to treat us this way. It has totally turned us off to doing future business with UHaul
