My moving day was an absolute nightmare at the hands of Uhaul. I reserved a 9' cargo van on September 29th for pick-up on Tuesday, October 6th from your U-Haul Moving & Storage of South Philadelphia location. On Monday, October 5th, I received a voicemail from a representative named Charlene, who was calling to confirm my reservation. At no point during her voicemail did Charlene mention which location she was employed at. When I called back to confirm a pick-up time for the cargo van, Charlene still failed to mention that she was employed at a location that differed from the location I reserved my van for pick-up from. I confirmed an 11am pick up for Tuesday 10/6, and on Tuesday, woke up and drove 90 minutes to your 12th & Washington Ave. location in Philadelphia. Upon arrival, an employee told me that there were no 9' cargo vans for a one-way reservation at that location, and that my reservation showed that I was supposed to pick up the van from a location in Easton, Pennsylvania (my original moving destination, where I had just driven the 90 minutes from). Naturally, I was angry at yet another display of incompetence from Uhaul. I was told to call an 800 number to switch my reservation to a 10' box truck, which would be provided to me at the South Philadelphia location. I did so, and upon inspection of the 10' box truck the employee had allotted for me, I noticed a large puddle in the truck bed and a large hole in the truck bed's roof. I was then told that I must change my reservation again, and this time I was given a 14' box truck. This turned my entire day into an enormous strain, as I did not have a lot of items to move in the first place, and driving a large truck through South Philadelphia streets was incredibly strenuous. Not to mention the fact that the larger truck led to a more expensive highway toll and a higher cost to re-fuel upon completion of my move. Not once did any employee of the South Philadelphia location admit to any wrongdoing or apologize for the inconvenience. Even today, the day after my move when I spoke to the general manager of this location, I was led to believe that I was in the wrong for accepting the 14' box truck instead of going out of my way to find a location where a 9' cargo van was available. I was also told your $50 reservation guarantee was not applicable for such an issue, which I find absolutely infuriating. Yet another corporation not taking blame for their own gross errors. Your representatives at the South Philadelphia location are incompetent, rude, and do not understand the concept of customer service. I demand to be reimbursed the $50 for this botched reservation and also to be repaid $20 for my inflated gas costs. I will be sure to relay this experience to all of my friends and family when they are thinking of Uhaul for their "moving and storage resource."

I was very impressed with their efficiency. However I found their radioing back and forth a little off putting, it made me feel rushed.

They were great! Surprisingly quick considering how busy they were. I caught someone outside and was able to return the truck in about 1 minute! It was a bit confusing where to leave the truck though... you ARE supposed to drive directly into the lanes on the right even though the arrows are pointing forward.

Pick-up was very fast and after hour drop-off worked seamlessly.

The location of the pickup requested on line was changed 3 times, and then we were told the vans weren't allowed to be dropped off outside of Philadelphia, something not on the website. Very frustrated I complained strongly. We were then "upgraded" to a small box truck which we were allowed to pick up at the originally-requested location. (!!) The entire reservation/pick-up process was chaotic.

We were originally scheduled to drop out uhaul off at a different location. the west Chester location upgraded our truck to a 20 ft. because they didn't have any 17 ft available. Then the orginial drop off location informed us that they would not take the truck because of the size. It was a huge inconvience to have to continually drive the u haul through the city and impeded our move in process. I will never be using that location again.

Question #1 Answer: It was near to my house. It wasn't life changing. It was convenient. Question #2 Answer: I wasn't disgusted. From what I could tell it was a good vehicle. Question #3 Answer: Sure, if he lived close to the location. They guy at the front desk, Eh. The guy at returns, Eh. Neither was really memorable or personable, what I appreciated most was they did thier jobs efficiently so that I could do mine.

Please consider installing 'cow-catcher' devices on your fleet of vehicles in Philadelphia, so that when punkass kids walk out into traffic with the nonchalantness of Superman, they might be harmlessly brushed aside to be mowed down by someone else. That being said, the turning and braking response of the Lil' Sammy moving van is quite impressive, and I had no problem avoiding the little SOB.

The young lady that waited on me was Shanara Bond. She was pleasant and extremely efficient. I was in and out of the office in no time. I have rented vehicles from this location before and I have never had a problem. Wonderfully staffed.
