The inside of the trailer was covered with gravel dust or some type of thick dust. When I reported it upon return the staff took my complaint very seriously and apologized for the inconvinence and appeared to address the issue imidiatly after I dropped the trailer.

Windshield was not clean, but otherwise the truck was clean and comfortable. Pickup was easy and quick.

Employee was very helpful and accomodating. The location was very busy on a Saturday and appeared to have only the one employee handling everything. Another employee on duty would have helped.

For the cost, you should get a certain number of miles free. I spent way more on mileage than the truck rental.

Make sure appliance dollies are in good repair. If a store does not have ordered blankets and dollies then let customer know in advance.

Had my rental scheduled to pick up for 3:15 PM however when I had arrived there was no one in the store and my spouse and I stood around for 15 minutes with no help then had found out that somehow our rental was cancelled at 7 AM that same morning. Luckily they had a truck available but all the associate had said was that people that use the internet to set up their rental complained a lot, then continued to complain that he could not finish his lunch because they were so busy. The general manager had a poor attitude and did not want to help. Will no probably use UHaul again sadly but reservations getting switched around or cancelled is the norm.

The location is not accessible from both directions without turning into another parking area then turning around. Very tight quarters for delivering/ picking up a trailer. Staff were helpful. The customer counter set up was somewhat strange. I think they have out grown their current location. The location was clean, but not very inviting, too small. I would recommend this location if you need something for smaller projects.

The person working Saturday morning didn't open the front door till 7:15 and there was 4 different customers waiting when he opened the door. Just started the day off so I had people waiting on me to start moving.

Very difficult location to get in/out of unless coming from one direction (West). Trailer cables were inoperable, fixing took 20 minutes (or more) additional. Dolly that I rented was not put in the trailer as indicated by staff, had to make return trip.

We did not receive the equiptment that we had requested. Had requested both appliance and furniture dollies and was sent out with a utility dolly. Otherwise, rental went pretty smoothy - although we had to pick up truck at a different location on a different day than we had requested.

This is a very small facility and a little difficult to maneuver through to even pick up the trailer. Otherwise good service provided.

My car got blocked in when I parked it there for 5 minutes to rent a van. Parking lot is often a mess. Will be using different options next time I need to rent a van or truck.

When your equipment breaks down and it takes almost 9 hours to receive any help while my child and pets wait in the heat? Most of your staff was incompetent, couldn't spell or were just plain rude! What uhaul did to my family was disgusting and nearly cost my animals their lives! I will NEVER use uhaul again!

The contract said to return to this location, however when I arrived the staff person said they didn't have room and I needed to go someplace else. Fortunately I had a voicemail that also stated this return location. When we attempted to leave with our personal vehicle, the entrances were blocked so I asked the staff to move the uhaul equipment so we could get out and he said to give him some time. Literally after about a half hour I said we needed to leave and I managed to find a way out myself.
