Suggested improvement: Have an even greater selection of trailers. The covered trailer I wanted was not available, so I went with an open one. However, this is complaining at a very high level, since I decided on a Saturday evening that I needed the trailer next morning (Sunday). When I made my reservations longer in advance, I usually got the trailer I wanted at this Uhaul location.

When I was picking up my truck, one of the employees backed into me while I was walking into the front door. He was backing a van into a "no-parking" zone near the front door (which I'm fairly certain is on camera). He had snow on the rear-view mirrors, and hit me while I was walking. I reported it to another employee when I returned my truck, but it didn't seem as if anyone was going to address it. I'm very unhappy and have some mild bruising, but mostly I was unhappy that neither one of the employees seemed to care. I'm not sure what follow up exists, after that kind of incident.

It is good that the rental has owner's manual with the truck. I had questions while on the road. Many rentals lack the manual.

Had my hitch installed here. I was told this was a 2 hour installation. I heard nothing from them for 5.5 hours. I finally called, they checked my vehicle, and it was done. I ordered a 5x8 trailer 3 weeks in advance. I never received reervation confirmation from them. The day before I was scheduled to pick up the trailer I decided to call to see if it was confirmed as reserved for me. They finally confirmed the reservation. I was given a 5x8 trailer with a broken door (wouldn't stay open). It was covered in dirt.

The fuel tank was not as full as shown on paper. I filled it for $26.54 or 8.73 gallons for a total of 35. 5 miles. This makes the 14 cargo truck at 35.5/8.73 = 4.06 miles per gal. Really, a truck this size might get 11 miles a gal. Not happy with the rental system.

I was disappointed that this location does not have a Tow Dolly in its regular inventory. For vehicle moves, this is the easiest equipment for this facility to have. It wouldn't consume much space, and would be a helpful and useful item to keep on hand. My next car move will force me to go to another rental place, as i don't like the hassle of a full size trailer, and the awkward strap location that forces you to put too much weight on the tongue of the tow vehicle. The staff at this location is very friendly and helpful, i just wish you could stock this versatile piece of equipment.

Our truck didn't arrive at 2. Promised to call us when it did. Never called. Said they were too busy. We went back to store, young man was very kind. Older redhead that works there (I assume manager) has horrible customer service skills. Said oh well we're busy. I forgot to call. Upon leaving with the truck we notice the air in the tire seemed low. Went and loaded it. Stopped to get air in it, only it was 2 large blowouts. Called and we're told "oh its ok, it's dual wheel. You'll be fine." We weren't fine. We were worried the entire time the truck wasn't going to make it to our new house. After we bring it back to return it, she couldn't even apologize or anything. Not happy at all. Next time I'll go with a different company. Not to mention when I reserved the 24ft. Truck online, she called to confirm with a 14ft. I said that was wrong. Was told take it or leave it that's all they had.

Need to eliminate 55 mph stickers from the fenders. No one actually drives that slow. Those of us that tend to be rule obeyers fill a twinge of guilt.

I rented a 10 ft. truck when it was snowing. The tires on this truck were in poor condition (very worn) and traction was a problem. Otherwise, the truck did well.

They never did an inspection of the vehicle. The back had been left open and was full of snow and the ramp was covered in ice.

No one went on a walk thru with the truck. The truck itself looked like it was in a five car pile up before front bumper was caved in the rear bumper was also twisted. Was suppose to pick the truck up at a different location was not informed about the change till I called the day before pick up to confirm was told I had to drive 30+ miles out of my way to get the truck granted they credit me 50 miles and 20 in gas but still would have been nice to get a phone call about the change was not happy with uhaul at all on this rental experience hope next one will be better

When reserving the truck I was told the dolly 'comes with' the truck. 'Comes with' means 'is included in the price' to just about everyone. When I picked up the truck I was going to rent moving pads. The employee told me there were some already in the truck - again, no mention of having to pay extra for things. When I settled my bill at pick up, it was presented as a final bill - again, no mention of extra possible charges. A friend helping me move got the dolly out and opened the pads - so I never say the information about payment. When I talked to the store manager he was definitely no helpful. He said he would talk to both employees about the misinformation but was not interested at all in crediting me the $10 I feel I was overcharged.

Make sure personnel is visible at all times. Both times when I arrived at the U-Haul office, no staff was visible for about 1-2 minutes and there was no bell/buzzer to get anyone's attention. Otherwise, great service.

Make sure you double check the gas on leaving. I rented local, drove 35 miles, put 3 gallons in and they made me pay an extra 15 dollars because it wasn't at the level THEY had on the sheet.

When a customer suggests that the vehicle may have an engine issue please listen to them. I asked if there was an engine knock and was told it was an exhaust leak. We had a break down after two hours on the road.
