Your Holding compound could be together with your office, PLUS... have some secured parking for your clientele. Parking and leaving my own Van parked on the street on a known or once known BAD area. Other than that I enjoyed the rental unit, thank you Steve Ferenzi :) Will see you again!!!! AWESOME VEHICLE...

The lot that holds the trucks is a bit of a walk back to the office. A lift to/from the lot during office hours is appreciated. After office hours, a fair walk after 2 days of moving and being exhausted.

I should have tested the 'appliance dolly' first as it was far too heavy for me to lift it and utilize it effectively. I do not know it was heavy as it was simply put in the van for me.

Through no fault of anyone we had engine problems and had to have all our contents transferred to another truck. The customer service went above and beyond what I would I've expected. From the telephone reps to the ground workers including the area manager the service was excellent. Lots of companies boast customer service, it's only when something goes terribly wrong do you find out if they are committed to a true sense of "Customer Service" and UHaul had that commitment. I will gladly give them a glowing recomondation.

Better vehicle - one without very loose steering

get the reservation correct from the get-go. They did not have the one-way reservation setup when it should have been. It took more than 45 minutes to straighten out the reservation. Then they told me the vehicle had 1/4 tank of gas... which it did not, it only had 1/8 of a tank.

There was no one to help me hookup trailer . Was sent to their yard from their office. Had to move another trailer by myself to get the trailer out i rented.They should be helping people with the actual hooking up of trailers and checking befire they go down thr road. Lucky for me i tow trailer all the time but others might not have that experience.

There is no room at this location to pick up or drop off equipment - it is a storefront only. Was directed to the actual storage lot several blocks away. Fortunately I was familiar with Nanaimo - but I still missed the lot entrance the first time and had to circle the block.

We were very happy to deal with Keeran at this location. She made pick-up easy and quick and was very nice. Unfortunately after talking to another woman there over the phone the next day I didn't feel the same. I had asked if it was possible to bring the truck back a couple hours late because I was a little behind (I called a couple hours before I was supposed to bring it back). Previously I have gotten a free day with a truck if there's no reservation on it, and this is what she offered me. She said there was no reservation for it that evening so if I want I could even bring it back the next day. She forgot to inform me that if I kept the truck I would be charged an extra day, she made it sound as if it was complimentary. If I had been told I would be charged another day, I would've hauled ass and gotten that truck back on time that day. But the next day I was charged double what I was supposed to because of the "extension". When I called customer service to ask if I could be reimbursed because of the mix up, they were very rude and refused to let me speak to anyone else about it, she just kept repeating that the charges stand up because I requested an "extension." I was very impressed with the Practicar location itself but I won't be using Uhaul again as something goes wrong every time on their end. They're normally very good about giving $50 back if someone is unhappy but that wasn't the case this time. It's unfortunate as I've used the company 4 times in the past 2 years as I move around the island a lot.
