Great customer service, was met by a friendly person, hooked up quickly. Only issue, make it clear on the web site the size ball that is needed for trailers.

Good staff. Had my trailer off before I even talked to anyone to check out. Parking lot is very tight but overall great experience.

The last time I rented from this location, the equipment wasn't well maintained and the center was, um, a dump. This time, both employees were upbeat and customer focused. The equipment was in excellent condition. What a pleasant experience.

This store is by far the best to deal with in the metro. Friendly and try to get you in and out.

Took me close to an hour to get checked in and on my way. They were very busy and working hard but appeared to be short staffed. When I returned the equipment after hours my car was blocked in, took lots of maneuvering to get out. When I tried to drop odd the key the key fob was to big for the slot. Called the 1-800 number, the First person I talked to was rude, the second was helpful but not what I would call customer oriented. If at all possible I will never use this location again. I have much better experiences with the Watrous location.

Site should have moved my truck pick-up when they moved my tow dolly pick-up the morning of my reservation. Was missing guaranteed items from my reservation. Difficult to deal with after the fact to remedy the situation.

The gentleman who rented me the trailer was terrific. He handled the paperwork and trailer hook up in the most competent and friendly manner I have experienced at any U-Haul. Kudos!

The clerk was not at the front desk when I arrived so I went looking for him. He was great to work with once I found him but it would have been nice to have someone at the front desk or ready to walk up front when someone arrives. I think he was the only person working that day so kudos to him for holding down the fort. I think maybe you just need at least 2 people at this location. 1 for the front desk and 1 for everything else.

My online quote was different than what was presented to me that day and the employee was not helpful. There is NO parking. Have to park in mall lot and walk across 4 lanes of traffic.

The employee that assisted me provided OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE. His name was Joey. He was professional, friendly and happy to help even though he was working on a holiday, July 4th. Great service!!!

The customer service this time was better than before. In the past, I have had not so good experience at this facility. The employee this time was courteous and I was out of there in short amount of time. The vehicle was clean and ready.

The Gentleman running the store was friendly, helpful, and efficient. This is the 3rd time he was working while we were renting a truck. He took the time to call to let us know we had left our tools in your truck. He also found a set of our keys and took the time to call us! This guy is the reason we'll be back to this location the next time we need a truck.

Long wait to be helped when picking the vehicle up, even when I had checked in online in advance.

I asked for 12 hours and was told I could have 5 when I showed up to the location. I was told I would get some sort of confirmation and didn't receive any notification of less than the time I requested. The vehicle was filthy and it was necessary to sweep and clean it out before it could be used to move anything. My experience was the worst I've ever had from a uhaul or any rental company.
