None of the lights on the starboard side of the trailer worked. Brakes did work. Agent tried a quick fix for the lights, but no remedy, no substitution of trailer. Otherwise, the trailer worked fine and the people were friendly and easy to deal with.

The desk employee had a long line but was calm and efficient. I had a minor problem which he resolved for me

I had specifically requested that the pick up truck I reserved (which usually is rented for a period of 4 hours) be available for 24 hours. Once I arrived at the store location to get my truck, the lady told I could only have it for 4 hours and demonstrated no interest in solving the issue.

While the back of the moving truck was clean, the cab of the truck wasn't.

Most of the fleet of rentals are older and all smell like cigarette smoke in the cab. I always end up getting treatments at the allergist after my moves because of that. Unfortunately Penske and Budget have extremely poor customer service so I exclusively use Uhaul.

Uhaul decide to change my pick location without notifying me, I understand things happen, but when I arrived to pick up my truck I mentioned the change in location I was told it was basically my fault for not checking my e- mail, no I checked my e- mail ,there was no change of location mentioned. Something not mentioned by Uhaul, they pre- loaded the truck with a hand truck & covers. When I made the reservation I had the opportunity to select these items I declined, now why would I want them in my truck taking up space?I'm considering taking Uhaul to small claims court, I feel they violated my contract , I thought I was renting an empty truck,instead you get a truck with their equipment, BTW the equipment has these little green wire ties on them you break the ties ,you get to pay the rental for the equipment.

The truck that I rented had a serious leak. I was driving the truck in the rain, and water was coming in on the driver's side in a continuous stream, pouring down the seat belt and onto me. It soaked my shirt, so wet I could wring water out of it, within the first 15 minutes of driving - and I had about 12 hours of driving to do that day. I pulled over in a rest area and had to jerry-rig a fix for the leak by cramming a sock into a hole in the trim and tying a t-shirt around the seat belt to absorb the water that got through that. It was thoroughly miserable. I reported this when I dropped the truck off. I was expecting to get some kind of discount on the rental, given this awful experience. What did I get? Not a discount - and not even an apology. Terrible customer service, terrible vehicle maintenance, and ridiculously high prices. Next time I'll try Budget.

I had a VERY BAD UHaul experience, but not because of the people in the stores. In person, everybody was helpful. My problem was that I had a reservation--a thing where I book something and IT IS THERE WHEN I NEED IT--and neither the truck nor the Auto Transport were in the location on the morning of my move. I had to spend HOURS driving around the day before my inter-state move, when I had MUCH more important things to do, to get UHaul items. I do NOT intend to book with UHaul ever again. UHaul's policy of "preferred pickup times and locations" is absurd. I will not recommend UHaul to anyone, I will suggest that they go with more reliable companies. UHaul made my move MUCH more difficult than it should have been.

Only one employee was present. This made the wait a few more minutes than I would have liked. I would recommend always having two employees present.

We had one issue with the rental, and that was the company had only scheduled 15 minutes between our reservation and the next one. We were running a bit late and were surprised we could not extend the time. We were not able to complete the job--we had to return the truck. Do if you rent from Uhaul, give yourself tons of time.

I was treated so well there is nothing i can say to improve the experience. I originally wanted a 14 ft truck but one wasn't available. They got one at the last minute. The gentleman who checked me in was courteous and got me right in and out. The staff was so friendly.

It would be very helpful to have power windows and power door locks on the van.

It would be a bit more convenient if all trucks had a full tank of gas on pick up and were to be returned full. Estimating to get a similar tank level is a pain in the rear. Full is easy :-)

Richard, the man who received the equipment when we returned, is always so very nice, pleasant, efficient, a pleasure to interact with and low key. He's a great person to have on your team! He should be told how good he is at his job!

Given the fact that it is the only place I had to use it. One person for 5 people in line is not enough. Waited over 30 mins for my turn. Got my rental 15 mins later then the time I ordered it, and of course was asked to return it 15 mins earlier. Expensive mileage rate

Rick provided great customer service and answered all of our questions. The truck was clean and drove well. Thanks for a great rental experience!

I reserved a 14 ft truck, online reservation said it was a 16ft. Then upon arrival, I was told there was only a 26 (!) foot truck for me (at the same cost of course...!) This was way out of my needs and caused incredible challenge moving into and out of a small area with a single lane street. I was told the nearest 16ft truck was 60 MILES AWAY! Unbelievable that UHaul would confirm reservations for vehicles that they do not have available.

Asked to drop off closer to home was told there would be another charge should be allowed to drop off with being charged thank you

I was rather irritated that the location at which I had originally scheduled to pick up the Uhaul I was renting was moved from Owego to Ithaca, which is roughly a forty-five minute drive. I would have been more tolerant had I known the equipment I was renting was not going to be available in Owego to begin with.
