The service was very good, quick, and convenient, and the trailer was clean, but the door on the trailer was nearly impossible to open and close. I had to drive it home with the door partially open.

I received truck with a faulty overhead door I understand some things are not easily foreseen I don't know if this falls in to that category but when the truck is completely loaded after a day's work and your paying for your help you want the equipment to work properly, roadside assistance responded somewhat promptly and makeshift operation got the door closed for me. Definitely not the best service I've had with uhaul thus far, when speaking with uhaul counter agents I got the "unfortunately there's nothing we can do response" will consider trying elsewhere next time.

Poor levels of customer experience. Call center routes calls to Phoenix if people at store are busy, and they do not have sufficient authority to make changes. The location was well maintained & people at front desk were helpful, but overall my issue about final charges is still unresolved even after 2 calls & being routed 3 times

I was told I needed a hitch so we purchased one. Next thing I know is that Subaru tells us not to haul anything with my car. I would have thoaught U-Haul would have mentioned this before I purchased it. Next hing I know I am renting a 14 foot truck.

Would never use UHaul again. 1. Waited 30 minutes to pick up the truck; 2. Was told reserved dolly was not available; 3. Truck ended up having dolly in it, which I utilized (breaking green tab); 4. Was double charged for a single dolly; 5. Called UHaul customer service to correct charge. They said I would get a credit and a call back from the location. 6. Location never called. Refund never credited. 7. Waited 15 minutes to return the truck before giving up and leaving it in designated area with keys in the ignition. Very unhappy.

Drop off assistant manager (Marcie?) was extremely rude to me and non-apologetic. I will NOT rent from your location again and will tell all of my friends to do the same.

Customers service was rude. Stating that there no way i paid for the rental in full previously before pickup. Insisted I was wrong and lieing. Very rude. Then never apologized and was rude the rest of transaction. Customers service was awful but location and inventory was excellent. The location were I picked up the truck in Springfield ma on union st. They were just as bad. Customer service was very unprofessional and clueless. As well as mileage was wrong written on the contract. Which I missed until drop off. Which i kept my own milage data and had to pay extra money for there mistakes wasnt worth the fustartion. They were clueless on running a business. This is my 11 time renting uhaul. And the worst pick-up transactions I ever delt with. Fyi I picked up a truck in Springfield and trailer in Manchester ct. And barley had enough milage to go there and back asnwell as oaying 40$ in gas bc they didn't have the trailer they said they did. Sorry to complain I typically dont but worst experience.

Online reservation system failed to identify this location as a potential match for my move. Instead it offered a much more distant location. Only when I modified my reservation by speaking to a rep was the Manchester location offeted. The lot there was FULL of late model equipment of various sizes. It's hard to believe that my rental needs could not be serviced from this location originally.

What needs to be improved? Literally everything with the exception of the actual truck itself. My reservation was changed multiple times without my consent. I originally scheduled a 10' truck for 24 hours and I received a voice message from the store saying that it had to be back by 4pm the same day. When I called the 1-800 number they didn't know why it would have been changed (and I spoke with 2 different people) and they set it back to 24 hours. Then when I showed up the morning of the move, I was told the reservation had been changed again and now it had to be back by 5pm the same day. And while I was waiting for my truck, I could hear them on the phone playing games with other people's reservations. When another customer asked what would happen if he couldn't return the truck by 5pm, the staff's response was literally "then I'm not going to rent the truck to you". In addition to that, the staff seemed very unhappy to be working there and clearly did not get along with each other. Staff even made comments to me about how they didn't like their co-workers which is very unprofessional. I also got there promptly at 9am and did not receive my truck until after 9:30am. Not only was it frustrating to have to wait so long for no reason, that was an entire half hour wasted from my newly limited time window. And to top that all off, the reason I had to wait so long for the truck was that the person who currently had my truck was someone who had just picked it up and had been called to bring it back and switch it out for a van so that I could have the truck. If you don't have availability for an item, then don't promise a reservation. I am extremely unhappy about my experience at the Oakland Street U-Haul and will certainly tell anyone else to avoid it. It is with no exaggeration that I say that I have had better experiences at the DMV. I don't expect much, just give me a truck so I can move. And I am not a person who would normally write such an in depth response except that this experience was so awful. Thank you for your time and I hope serious work is done to improve this location's service for the sake of future customers.

Reserved a 26' truck 3 weeks in advance. Two days before rental I checked the reservation and everything was in order. The night before rental I get an email from U-Haul at 8 pm (after U-Haul has closed) confirming my reservation for Putnam, CT at 10am, only my reservation was for Columbia, Ct at 6pm. Called U-Haul the next day. Said I could either pick up in Putnam (not even close by) or get a 20' truck from Manchester, Ct. The person from U-Haul gave us more miles and rental time so that we could pick up in Manchester. We ended up having to take two loads instead of one. Luckily we were only driving half an hour one-way. I don't understand why U-Haul couldn't drive the truck from Putnam to Columbia to honor a reservation, but instead would just send an email the night before and expect that to suffice. Manchester U-Haul was easy to work with and not at fault.

The Truck was dirty an smelly (old hand razor, potato chips on floor and ashes in the ashes in ash tray, we are non smokers) when picked up an the passenger side mirror was broken and made the trip very stressful and dangerous.

When I made my appointment to pick the truck up I said I was going to be closer to 9 o'clock to pick it up. 8:50 AM I show up to find out that they had canceled my truck because they couldn't get a hold of me and made it a point to say my # was disconnected. Mind you this is when other people were in the store and I wasn't even dealing with this lady she was already taking care of other people. She was very nasty and just had an attitude. Come to find out that they had taken my info down wrong. She was completely out of line and it was very unprofessional. The asst. manager was defending her actions saying that I'm sure she didn't mean to come across that way. She didn't even say sorry that it happened or anything like that. Needless to say I will not be recommending this location and I will not be going back.

Pay more attention to the vehicle mechanics. No mileage reading on dash. ABS light stays on. Loud squeeling noise when starting engine.

Must be ready to be let down, didnt have proper truck so got a bigger one. It was not needed.

TANYA L. on 9/6/2014

The truck I was given was in very bad shape. The ABS light was on and the brakes barely worked. Every time I tried to start the truck it gave me a problem and squeeled all the way across town, how embarassing. The truck also barely shifted while on the highway and the steering was very dangerous. I would have brought the truck back if i wasnt under time constraints, but when I did return the truck, and when I told the woman at uhaul about the problems all I got was we are getting new trucks next year and the one you took is mecahnically sound! All I felt was like everything I said was dismissed. After being told that new trucks are comming next year, the next response was $117.00 please. I found this to be rediculous! No sorry or nothing. Needless to say... I will never use this uhaul location ever again and I will also have nothing good to say about this specific location.

I don't know the woman's name but whoever waited on us was very nice. In these times, when poor customer service seems to be the norm, it was refreshing to experience excellent customer service for a change!

Customer service was not that great. One of the guys was handling a phone transaction when I walked in while the other was doing something on the computer. Rather than stopping the computer work that appeared to be unrelated to assisting a customer directly and tending to me who was standing right there in front of him, I had to wait until the other gentleman ended his phone conversation before I was helped. They had to change the chains on the trailer, they had to change the part that screws onto the ball for the hitch. What essentially should have taken no more than 20 minutes to pick up took a little over an hour. However, it all did work out in the end. I just would advise people to pick up at another location if able.
