You can't do much to improve. I've rented vans from this location before, and the employees are so friendly and helpful. The vans are as promised. Great place.

Smells of Smoke, and the operators were unkept, poorly dressed and were not familiar with the U-Haul system to aid in the other services (storage) that were provided, referred to the website. No Quality Controls Here!!

Make sure the inside of the van is clean. I had to spend 10 minutes wiping down the steering wheel, cup holders, dash etc. It was full of crumbs and it was very sticky. Also the windshield was dirty should gave been cleaned before I picked up the van.

Alpine in Rockford was GREAT! Helped with the trailer and wanted to make sure everything was right. I wanted to get the trailer in Peru, IL but was called the AM before pickup and told nearest was Ottawa. Peru or whoever called for Peru was NOT helpful. Would NOT reccommed the Per location to anyone.

The place I picked up my equipment was fine except that I wasn't suppose to get it from there. The place I was suppose to go to didn't have my truck and the tow dolley was in another state. I that the whole point of reserving the equipment was so everything is ready and on time. Moving is strenuous enough, you should have to be looking for trucks at the last minute. The place I ended up at was further away from where I was moving and they do charge you for miles. Usually I always go with Uhaul but I was so unhappy this time that it my be my last.

the pick up was schedualed for forest hills. so it would be walking distance to pick up. becuase this was changed day of i had to call for a ride to get to this location. this was unexpected and unplesant. when arriving there was a line and took over 20 minutes to get processed. i placed my order to pick up at a location. this is the second time uhaul has done this. and will be the last time i use them. have used ryder and penskie and never had a problem being at the location they are suppose to be at.

Rebuild the hitch "ball socket" and tightening clamp, which keeps the trailer from coming off the ball. I have a 2" ball, (even though a 1 7/8" ball is allowed), and there was excessive freeplay which caused excessive banging and jerking on the tow vehicle transfered through the hitch receiver. I have towed many trailers, and several of my own, and know that a proper fitting ball and hitch does not have to be sloppy. Otherwise, everything was acceptable. This is not the first time I have used this dealer, nd I would use them again, but I will ask about the age of the equipment I will be getting.

The building had a "no smoking" sign posted on the front door, but once you walked there was a overpowering stench of cigarette smoke. The gentleman that initially contacted me about my reservation needs better customer service skills. very abrupt and cranky.

Our reservation was not honored at the location designated by U-Haul but the location employees were amazing in helping us get a van at Alpine. I would probably NOT recommend U-Haul because of the delay and hassle of having to go to multiple locations for a "reservation"
