The 26' truck is way too low to the ground. We couldn't get the truck in the driveway at our old house because it would have scraped the drive way and it messed up the aggregate drive way at our new house because it's a long drive way and it has a slight incline and decline and now we have to pay someone to come out and fix the drive way! The trucks are way too low!!!

There was a little wait on the "front end" when I stopped by to get information. On reservation and rental days the wait time was minimal.

Had a flat tire. Had to get a hotel room. Person who fixed tire was 50 miles away. When called by UHaul person he said it was our fault we had a flat tire.The worst part of the experience was dealing with the person who was suppose to resolve the matter. NOT HAPPY ALT ALL.

Slow getting the truck after reservations made at 1-800-go-uhaul. The store's printer was not working and the clerk was young and in no hurry. In our case we were in a hurry. Our adult child was moving from an abusive relationship after almost being killed by her boyfriend on Sat. We were in a hurry to get to the house and move her belongings. If we were not in a hurry, still, in store equipment was not working properly.

We rented a 10 foot truck. I called a couple of times because I needed to confirm availability of the vehicle as well as my help. The person I finally reserved the truck with had difficulty understanding that I wanted the truck on Saturday 11/7/2015 at 4:00 (It was being rented out on the same day between 9:00 and 3:00). I was told that it was going to be available at 4:00 but the person did not understand that and kept trying to rent it to me on Friday 11/6/2015. I was also told that the truck would have a ramp which it did not.

I have rented from at least 5 U-haul locations over the last 6 years. The experience I've had at other U-haul locations drove me to look at Enterprise & Penske. This location (Ace Hardware-Williamsburg) was wonderful. Easy, convenient, reputable, and polite. I will only rent from this location in the future.

Please have u haul place a barcode on their dollies so that the rental procedure is not so difficult for the employee and the customer. Currently the employee has to open the portfolio as if I rented a trick, add the door and remove the truck just to rent the dollie

I rent uhauls for residents that are needed to be transferred to another location all the time from other locations. I went into the store to preregister providing all of my information and offering a copy of the certificate to cover the cost of the uhaul. They advised a copy was not needed and everything was put into the computer. Upon arriving to pick up the rental, this store gave me the hardest time. It took us 45 minutes to get the truck and the person assisting was not interested in our time. The manager was called and he advised he knew nothing about the certificate and walked away leaving the unhelpful tech to continue to express and show how much we was bothering him with our uhaul transaction. The tech advised he needed to put the information in the system; however, in the end when questioning why the information was not there he advised it was there all the while!?? I will never go back to this location. Very unprofessional, not helpful and not interested in being knowledgeable about their job!!

Cargo area was a little dirty Some black grease or something got on some of my furniture.

Please eliminate the $1.00 "environmental fee". There is no justification to charge $1.00 as an unadvertised, mandatory fee. You are not using or disposing of minor random cleaning or volatile materials (as at an automotive repair shop). You are just charging me $1.00 more to rent your truck, without advertising that fact. Perhaps you should include in your advertised price, that it is actually $30.95 per day to rent the truck, and be honest about it.

No issues at all. They saw me pull in and came out to meet me and help disconnect the trailer. Overall, my experience was excellent.

This location was a bit difficult to find as I used map quest to find a uhaul location. There are many locations in town but one was all locked up and gated the other didn't take trucks so I recomend going here and getting directions to ace hardware. Hope this helps.
