4/10 Fair

We I made the phone call to pay for the u it was told it was fine and we can check in at 2pm got there early but was told that they will call us when the unit is ready. Come back at 2pm for them to tell me that they will call when it’s ready. Why charge so much if you can’t get units ready on time that’s what you expect paying that kind of moneyAfter driving 3 hours to get there
