There were a few things I didn't like. When you call your local Uhaul office number, no one ever answers. You have to drive to the place to talk to someone there. The gate remote I was given was broken and no longer opened the gate. To access my unit after the office closed was not an option because I now needed a code. I eventually got a code and was able to access my unit at my convenience. Whenever I was in the store to rent a truck etc. the staff was always nice and friendly. My only other issue was online payment. For some reason my balance did not show up until the day it was due and after. I paid my first payment late because of that. The store manager was nice enough to waive the late fees and help me. Aside from not wanting to pay $130/month for my unit anymore, my stay was nice enough. I felt my things were safe and secure.

Thanks for your Great Customer Service Guys for U Haul Rental and Storage Reservations...

Irina M. | Overall Experience |

I had great experience with the guys at that location but customer service lady named Ashley who was nasty on the phone last Monday i would refer to extra customer loyalty program classes or just give another task to do like housekeeping or cleaning instead. But an attitude in conversation to value customer like me just tells me that she will be poorly skilled in cleaning either. Greetings to Christian Ashes and hope my thousand was spent at least wisely in 2016. 😀 Have a scary, funny Halloween USO and UHaul with Residency Inn Drivers..

The person who helped me both times, Wayne, was helpful and quick.

Thank you Uhaul for your business. I do believe Christian Ashes got paid well by my household by now. Enjoy your week, all!

peter n. | Overall Experience |

The doors were replaced without our knowledge and the work was very messy. All of our storage was covered with thick dust and debris. You should have called us to put a tarp over the stored goods or put a tarp on yourself.

Charles L. | Online Move In |

If I were to recommend, it would be to make reservations in person as opposed to online. The access code given to me online was invalid. Fortunately office was open. They told me that online access codes are almost always incorrect and need to be revised on site. That's unacceptable, hence the below average rating.

Mehread M. | Overall Experience |

Everything was good but it was expensive.

Martin M. | First Impressions |

The staff and management was very helpful thank you so much for your assistant

Jeffrey L. | First Impressions |

All staff who assisted us were very helpful, particularly given the fact it was a Saturday morning at the end of the month. Very busy day for them and a computer system problem gumming things up, but the service was professional throughout. We were in sudden need of a storage unit and our day could have gone from bad to worse, but Nicholas and staff treated us like old friends. Much appreciated!

RAY J. | Overall Experience |

The gate access code was never updated to the code of my choice. Instead I was told I could use a different code that didn't have my name associated. When I had trouble with the gate code, I unfortunately called and was transferred to a central operator who said she'd message the local office. THat didn't happen, fortunately I called local number again. THere are no instructions to use gate access and the call button is gone.

RAY J. | First Impressions |

I tried to use the keypad 2 hours after renting. Unfortunately, my access code was NOT valid. I had to call the office and was diverted to corporate office who assured me they would contact local office. DIdn't happen. Fortunately I called the local office again and they provided a key code that was valid. The red help button on the key pad doesn't work. Why wasn't I warned that same day access wouldn''t work? Staff was helpful....but process was more stressful than expected

The code I received to get in to the facility was incorrect which was frustrating. Fortunately, an employee came by and was very helpful. He verified my unit, have me the correct code and let us in

The only issue was that the remote to open the gate would not work, but the staff quickly provided a code, so it really was not an issue.
