Well, I rented a truck at the location most convenient for me at Fullerton/Racine. Apparently, I was told on a confirmation call that the truck I needed was at the Kedzie location which I missed during the call, creating a very unsettling start to a difficult move. Then the truck only had 1/4 of gas in it, triggering warnings, adding stress. The location change also added miles and dollars to the cost of my rental. Plus I had to leave my car parked on the street in a rather sketchy neighborhood for three nights. Had I known that the truck I needed at the outset of the rental would not be available at that location (Fullerton/Racine) I would have made other plans. That is what I will do in the future and U-Haul will be my last choice.

I've rented from u-haul many times before, but I have to say that this was the most pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly, and extremely helpful. Check-in was really quick, and so was the vehicle inspection before leaving. If I ever have to rent from u-haul again, I want it to be from this place.

You should notify me earlier where and when to pick truck so that I can schedule my moving helpers earlier.

There was an extremely long line in the facility so it took me 25 minutes to get to a representative. I was at the facility at 9:50 for a 9:45 pick up but was not able to get the truck until 10:15. I was almost late to meet my movers although I had scheduled over ample time to allow myself to get the truck. Additionally, it seemed like only one employee was able to help the majority of the customers with problems which meant the person you were dealing with kept changing as some new customer had a different issue.

Long lines, rude staff and a vehicle the smelled of cigarette smoke.

I waited over a half hour to be taken care of. While the person I dealt with was friendly and helpful when I finally got up to the counter, it was clear they needed more than two people working there, especially for a Saturday morning. At least one potential customer walked out because the line was so long.

The trucks are apparently measures from the back to the front of the "mom's attic." I thought I was getting 20 full feet of floor space whe in reality I had 16. Had to make two trips, which was pretty unfortunate. This method of measuring is more than a little deceptive.

when i filled out the request online i was filling it out to be picked up at fullerton location. i guess the fullerton location doesn't rent the type of trailer i requested so i was rerouted to kedzie -- except that wasn't clear to me and was only in fine print. it should have been a much bolder message to let me know that the location was going to be a different pick up location, so i went tot he wrong place at first for the pick up.

Take off that you have 26 Foot trucks. Apparently no one can get these trucks so take them off of your website please.

There was only 1 person working at 8 am the morning I picked up the truck. 3 people in line and it's not a quick process. Took 45 min to get out of there.

Terrible customer service. We booked at 26 foot truck, received a confirmation email and then were told that we could only get a 20 foot truck upon arrival. I would never recommend this to anyone moving. It was a huge inconvenience and no one seemed to care. Our items did not all fit in the truck given to us.

Made a reservation and was confirmed to PU a trailer at 4055 N Broadway. Got there only to find they didn't have a trailer for me and that I had to drive five miles to Kedzie Ave. Idiots at Uptown Uhaul, once again let me down! Michael at Kedzie saved the day. Got me out quick,

This isn't the pick-up location I requested. Very poor customer experience to have your customers solve your poor product placement and logistics. I reserved at a specific location for a reason. Driving 13 miles across Chicago is not convenient. When I called to get this resolved the people I spoke to where unhelpful, one rep said, " I don't understand why you are upset ".

The wait was over 15 minutes to checkout. That was the only downside.

Not charge a fuel fee if the customer has followed every direction and filled the fuel prior to return, not happy with the company at all

I made a reservation for 4 days for the 15 foot truck with the 4055 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL location. I made this reservation 5 days prior to when I needed the truck. The man on the phone was very nice and helpful and kind. I showed up to get my truck and the staff had no evidence of my location. I showed staff the 10 minute call log I had with their location and they confirmed it was in fact the correct phone number. Now that they had lost my reservation, there was only a van available. So they said the best I could do was a 10 foot truck (5 feet smaller than what I ordered) and I'd have to go to another location. So, I went to the other location, waited over half an hour to get my truck and was then 2 hours behind starting my move ,I had timed the moving to avoid a massive parade going on, which we ended up moving during due to this incident. I also had to throw out two large and important pieces of furniture because they could not fit in the 10 foot truck. If we had gotten the 15 foot truck I initially ordered, I'd still have my furniture. In addition, the price quoted for the 15 foot truck for four days was less than what I was forced to pay for a 10 foot truck! Overall, though all staff was friendly, i was very upset with the whole process and lack of organization. I have used Uhaul in the past with no issues and was surprised and angry. I would not recommend U-Haul to anyone moving forward.

the only problem I had was with the Michigan drop off office. I had originally arranged a drop off in Plymouth mi. on Thursday 7-7-15 afternoon. My plans changed and I needed to change the drop-off to Chicago. I called to arrange this Saturday early afternoon ( 7-11-15) I was told that as long as the trailer was not reserved it would be no problem. It had not been reserved but the representative from Mi. said he could not authorize a change of drop off anyway! Saying that this trailer was in demand and I would most likely be charged a significant fine for a unauthorized change of drop-off ! I was connected to the Chicago office and they were able to accommodate me immediately! I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED AND FRUSTRATED WITH THE MICHIGAN OFFICE!!!

Nothing! Was met in the lot and was on my way in less than 5 minutes.
