Check the fuel tank before leaving the lot. My contract said it was 3/4 tank full; it was actually barely above 1/2 tank full. It probably cost me an extra $20 to make up the difference. I learned my lesson.

This 26' truck was on its last legs. The truck never started on the first or second try. The steering was terrible. I have rented from U-haul numerous times and this is the first time I rented a truck where the initial amount of gas in the truck was under 3/4 of a tank. It was under 1/4 of a tank, which I do not understand.

Pedro could not have been more helpful and accomodating. We screwed things up and had to change our date and move it up a day.He made it happen without any hassles. Very friendly and I will definately do business with him in the future.

We had a nightmare experience here from the very beginning. I was told the gas meter read a 1/4 tank, but when I got in the truck it was at 1/8 of a tank. I of course told the service person at the desk, a teenage boy, who said it's always been like that and not to worry about it. Well, that whole process put me behind on our moving plans for the day, so I brought the truck back about 20 minutes later than it was due. Apparently they had scheduled our drop off for 15 minutes before close and when I got there everyone had left. I dropped the key off in the box and, no surprise, I woke up to being charged for two (2) days of rental. At least when the trunk door got stuck open we had already moved everything out! I do NOT recommend this place. Spend the few dollars extra to get a more quality truck and better service.

The place looked under construction, not sure if it's old but needs overall improvement on property appearance

I had no problems so am not aware of anything needing change. Pedro was Vertu friendly and helpful. There was a Vertu good supply of equipment so I was able to add items.

This was the worst experience we have ever had while renting equipment from any business. Poor business practices, poor communication, poor record keeping and poor follow through. We would not recommend renting from this U-Haul site or U-Haul in general. No one was at the business and the door was locked at the time we were there to pick up our reserved trailer during stated business hours. We called the corporate office to find out what we should do. This process took a long time. As we were on the phone with U-Haul corporate, while still at the Wheaton location, someone finally came, 45 minutes late. The person on the phone from the corporate office told us to go ahead and get the trailer from that location and they would e-mail us a receipt. We did not get a receipt in our e-mail. The trailer with the serial number we reserved on-line could not be found on the lot so the person that showed up to take care of the rentals that day gave us another one without paper work. We later found out that this person was a relative of the owner. Upon returning the trailer the same day, we found that again, no one was there. We left the trailer on the lot only to be called numerous times by U-Haul Corporation on subsequent days wanting to know when we planned on returning the trailer. Each time we were called we told the U-Haul employee to whom we were speaking the entire story and each time they said they would take care of it. It took nine days and numerous phone calls to get this straightened out and even now we are not certain it is. We were promised a return phone call when the matter was finally cleared up but have never received a call from U-Haul. We did, however, finally receive a receipt in our e-mail that states we rented the trailer for 9 days but the amount they are charging us is correct for a one day rental. We will continue to monitor our credit card for a while. The entire experience was a huge hassle and I believe that U-Haul should have waived the fees all together.

I did leave two messages with the office about a question and did not receive a call back, but everything did work out without issue.

I was hesitant to use this location from all the bad reviews. However, my experience was entirely pleasant and I experienced absolutely no problems. Furthermore, not only was I able to retrieve my truck early, but I got to keep it all day since my scheduled return time was after they closed. This made the move much less stressful.

My contract stated the mileage on the truck was 109480. When I pulled out I noticed the mileage was actually 109497. I tried calling 3 times, left 3 voicemails and I tried going back but they were closed. I took pictures of the mileage too. I haven't heard back yet. I hope to hear from someone soon before my credit card is billed since this is fraud. Also, the cab of the truck was filthy, covered in cigar ashes.

I had a reservation for 11am on June 29th at the LOBUS WHEATON, 649 CHILDS ST, WHEATON, IL 60187. I was told that the location was open until noon. I knew I was running late so I called the number provided (630) 517-3140. There was no pick up. I called two additional times again without anyone answering. When I arrived at 11:20, there was no one on site. I waited around the location for an additional 30 minutes. When I attempted to call customer service the first time, I waited on hold for 15 minutes before the line disconnected. The second time I called I waited on hold for 30 minutes before I was able to get ahold of anyone. The lady on the phone informed me that my credit card had been charged for a cancellation fee. She then transferred me over to scheduling to see if there was another Uhaul available that day. I waited another 15 minutes on hold just to find out that there was not a SINGLE truck available anywhere that day. Do you have any idea how unacceptable that is?! The individual that was working at the Wheaton location should be immediately terminated. In addition, I require the "cancellation" fee to be immediately refunded as well as receive $50-100 worth of compensation for not having my promised truck. I will now reference your website: Once the rental location representatives speak with you and agree with you on a pickup time, date and location, the reservation will then be considered “guaranteed” (the agreed upon equipment will be at the agreed upon location at the time scheduled). If U-Haul fails to fill your guaranteed reservation, it will pay you $50 as liquidated damages. If you fail to pick up the equipment at the agreed upon location within one hour of the time scheduled for pick up, U-Haul may cancel your reservation and it will not be obligated to pay you the $50. Regular cancellation policies may apply.

U Haul sent me here to pick up. I tried calling this company the night before and morning and no on answered the phone. drove there and no one was there. called U Haul and after 2-1/2 hours a manager from Itasca location showed up to hook me up. drove it to my home and loaded trailer and noticed 1 tire was low. Checked tire pressure and it was only 5 psi. filled it up to 65 psi. loaded my trailer, locked it up and drove to the gas station. filled up my truck and did a walk around. noticed trailer door was wide open with tehe lock attached in the lock position. opened the lock and relatched the door. Thought I was to tired maybe and forgot to latch the door. This time I made sure latch was secure and locked. drove down the road for 250 miles and stopped ata gas station. did a walk around check and found my trailer back door wide open again with the lock attached and locked but now several iteams missing that must have fell out of my trailer that was worth approxamately $4000,00 including 2 big screen TV's, several boxes of clothes and personal items. It was Dark out as it was about 12 midnight so I had a binder to hold this door closed since it already jarred open 2 times with it latched and paddle locked. I then remembered the same thing happened to me 15 years ago so this is common. I mentioned this to my buddy at my moving place and he said he also heard about this that the trailer flexes and the door will pop open. U Haul must have several of these instances and recall thisa problem. I did noticed U Haul also has double vertical swing door trailers that should not be a problem. I will be report this matter to Lost Dages.

The guy at the center clearly betrayed me and totally misled me. He was aggressive when I questioned him about the price. I am seriously disappointed with the uhaul experience and would never recommend this center and if it repeats again not even uhaul

I am still trying to have a refund processed by this location, which never answers the phone, returns messages, or are even available in person. I was charged $25 for a cleaning, eventhough the van was delivered in an unclean (mud all over floor of interior) state. I did do a walk-around with the Lobus employee before taking the van, and he said he would note that it was dirty. He either didn't do that, or whomever logged the van back in charged me anyway. This is extremely upsetting, as the van was delivered to me in this state. I have now been trying to get the refund for almost 2 months. I am in the process of trying to get the refund through corporate now (Just got it taken care of by corporate, who were very nice - whew). Anyway, at this Lobus location, unfortunately poor customer service and follow-up. Save yourself the frustration and rent from another U-haul location.

I was a little nervous renting from this location after reading some of the negative reviews, but my experience turned out to be great. Wilfredo was the employee on staff when I picked up the truck and dropped it off, and he was friendly, helpful, informative, and very fast. I was extremely satisfied with the service that I received.
