5.2 OkayOct 6 2019
Pros: The New Haven staff member was not helpful. He did not explain to me additional charges that were added to my bill before he charged me and then was not helpful in helping me sort out a better course of action.Cons: The company could be more transparent about their fee structures online vs in the store. The company could make their workers feel more valued.
2.0 MediocreSep 17 2017
The place is no longer there!Cons: The rental doesn't exist any more.. There is a construction site instead...
