I reserved furniture pads but none were available on the day of my pick up.

Great service on a busy day at this store. Dru was great when I returned the truck to get me on my way quickly.

They forgot to unlock the back of the truck and forced us to turn around after driving off the lot. It's strange that this mistake would be made when the employees probably perform these routine checks daily. It was a disruption to our move and the employee was not very apologetic when we returned to get the lock removed. After returning the vehicle another employee checked the vehicle and then left me waiting in the garage for a long time after I requested a receipt. I decided to go in the store to find out where he went and they took another 10 minutes going between different people before providing the receipt I requested. Basically do not expect competence from the people working here. The location is convenient and the trucks are great. The boxes are also a good value and pretty sturdy. This is probably still the best place to get a moving van even though the employees lack competence and are generally rude.

The employee who "helped" me was lazy and rude. I will not return to that location again.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this location. They were very efficient and clear with directions on how to deal with the truck and what was required. They were knowledgeable and even recommended another location because they did not have the needed truck for the following day

The process for actually picking up the truck was incredibly slow

Vehicle was in excellent shape. Service was relatively quick and painless. The only let down was the attitude of the guy behind the counter. It's so obvious to customers when someone is making minimum wage and therefore just goes through the motions (almost robotically) instead of smiling and making you feel welcome. If you want to improve the experience for the next customer you have to have positive and motivated employees on your front line. Se Starbucks or any of the hundreds of other brands that get it right. You get the basics done but the culture isn't good and the customer instantly feels it.

The pickup and driving went really well. Good, clean, and reliable truck. The return was somewhat awful. I suppose I needed a little more explanation to understand how the paperwork I was given matched up with the totals at the end, which it did. But the gentleman who was going over the truck with me upon returning it rattled off questions so fast no human could discern them. Then When I was confused for a minute about the total price (I had a long day of physical labor), his whole attitude and responses could be summarized as, "what did I just say?!" I'm not a fan of being treated like an asshole. That is all. Everyone else was very nice.

You need to add a canopy for off loading...

Customer service was pretty awful. I had to call them over 6 times to change my order. I originally ordered online and the person taking my order misspelled my name, ruining the rest of the process.

Keep doing what you're doing. Cory was incredibly helpful in getting me a van. I've been to this location many times now and he's consistently kind and efficient in what he does.

I had a terrible experience with the Rental Pickup location. The pickup location changed the truck size without my permission. Originally, I ordered a 10' Uhaul truck. On Friday, May 13, 2016, I received an e-mail confirmation of my 10' Uhaul truck. When I arrived to pick up my Uhaul, I was told I had ordered a 15' Uhaul truck. Uhaul changed the order without my permission. The Uhaul representatives at the pickup location were rude and unhelpful. The Uhaul representative told me that perhaps my cellphone had an error. She persisted with this argument despite me showing her the Uhaul e-mail notification confirming the 10' Uhaul. Another Uhaul representative told me that just because I received an e-mail confirmation of a reserved 10' Uhaul truck and guaranteed pickup time did not mean I was guaranteed the Uhaul truck I ordered. This is a preposterous assertion. Why make a reservation if you do not receive what you ask for? Despite claiming not to have any 10' Uhaul trucks, there were more 10' Uhaul trucks in the loading dock than any other type. This is curious considering I was told by the Uhaul representatives they had no 10' Uhaul trucks. What is more interesting is that the Uhaul drop off location did not have any 15' Uhaul trucks. I ended up taking the 15' Uhaul truck because I had to move out on Saturday, May 14, 2016. The Uhaul truck would not start. It took over 45 minutes to speak with a UHaul representative. It took over 3 hours before the towing company arrived. I will never rent from Uhaul again. Also, I will tell all my friends never to use Uhaul because of their deceptive practices in overbooking reservations and changing them without permission of the customer. I have already filed a claim with Uhaul to receive a full refund. If I treated my customers the same way Uhaul treated me, I would have been fired immediately. Uhaul is not a "moving and storage resource"; it is a moving and storage nightmare.

The team here is beyond kind, generous and friendly! The woman who helped me return the van made my day by helping me unload my items and get them into a taxi to get home. She also was a consummate professional. Thanks!!

Staff were totally overwhelmed and moving extremely slow. Waited in line to be helped for 30 min, then when I got to the desk was told to go look for my own items which I paid for in advance. Once I completed getting some of my things there were two people infant of me again and waited another 20min to get the truck. You need to have better systems in place to make things easier for your staff to handle large groups of customers. These items were purchased two weeks in advance why weren't they just in the truck already? For what I paid the service was very poor, the truck was fine.

Everything proceeded quickly and smoothly at check-in. I was waiting for the moving help I had hired to arrive and Jasmine was kind enough to let me wait in the truck in the garage when I let her know I was hesitant to drive it myself. She was very accommodating, and it was much appreciated!

All personnel were courteous and very helpful. The supervisor went out of his way to help us get the right size of trailer we needed for our move! Thanks again!

The battery died when I stopped to grab a cup of coffee. Luckily was right next door to a gas station that had a battery pack I could borrow, but would have been in a tough situation if I'd been anywhere else. The mechanic from the gas station said that there was a new battery and the wires hadn't been tightened properly, so my sense is that this problem could've been easily avoided. UHaul did give me a 20% discount for the trouble.

Even though we returned the U-Haul after 1 night and 1 day of use, I was fraudulently charged for 8 days of having the U-Haul. No one I contacted seemed to understand what was going on. Utterly unacceptable. The charges actually created incredible personal strain, as someone no a budget. Unprofessional and will result in me NEVER using this location, and possibly UHaul, ever again.

The wait was a little long, and people seemed to be helped out of order. I didn't mind though because everyone was super helpful
