The only problem we had was with the Uhaul policy of not being able to have a truck available at the desired location even if the reservation was made over 1 month in advance. Originally we wanted a truck for 8:00 am in Canton, OH and were given a 12:30 pick up time in Akron which was about 15 miles further away than we requested. We were able to get the truck at 11:00 am. Other than the delay caused by this the staff at both locations were helpful & professional

1) Use the pref contact method 2) actually have a vehicle ready for pickup 3) inform a customer that when a rep says they are placing your card "on file" that it is actually placing a hold on my account. 4) will never, never deal with or recommend uhaul again

We did a one way trip and drop it off at this location. This location was close and easy to fine the hours was perfect. They had late hours(until 7 on sat) not 5pm like most places on sat. which made it better for us because our trip started out later than intispated. The service was great.

The reservations people need more training in the call center. They caused more stress than necessary.

the older man who is in the picture for this location is a scam artist and will try to find some way to over charge you twice now that iv dealt with him he has scammed extra money he also marks the gas line higher then it really is so you have to put in more gas then when you get it because he marks it after going around a corner at 20-25 mph making the float raise higher and the gas gauge show an un correct amount he also checks it when u first get back on a downward incline to try to make u pay more for gas that is already in the truck he is a true scam artist and should be arrested

The truck roof leaked water from rain in the "Mom's Attic" area. NEEDS REPAIRED! My items were luckily in plastic bags. If they had been damaged, you would NOT want to be around me. The steering wheel is a little sloppy. NEEDS REPAIRED! The ashtray had a cigarette butt in it.

Fantastic pick up location. Quick and helpful. Uhaul is definitely much cheaper and so much easier to use than I expected. The pick up set the tone for the whole day; thanks for a good start.

Making me pick up the truck at one location, and the auto hauler at another wasn't convenient at all!

this is one of the best locations i have ever dealt with when renting a truck. the only recomendation i would give them is to clean their windsheilds better. mine was pretty dirty and driving into the sun made it difficult. but overall, one of the best i've dealt with.

The young lady (Ashley Moore) that checked me in and out was extremely professional, efficient, and helpful. She is an asset to your organization and I would hire her away from UHaul without hesitation if I had an open position.

I called to confirm the availability of the trailer the night before I needed it, at the national phone number. They told me the trailer is available at 8am. When I got to the store at 8am, there was no trailer. That is TERRIBLE customer service, wastes the customer's time, and angers the customer.

My rental of truck and storage was handled by Austin and I would give him a 5 star rating. Very professional and made my whole transaction very smooth and easy !

prior to dropping off my trailer, uhaul kept giving me locations in ohio that ''had storage facilities'' and every one they sent me to did not have any storage at all. I spent 3 hours of my morning driving from various locations before I was finally directed to my final drop off location off fountain street. It seems unnecessary and there is an obvious gap in communication as to what each location offers.

Booked a 17ft truck for 1 day rental, was charged for 2 days. Truck was returned late (50 minutes late), due to back gate/door not closing (would close less than half way) which delayed my move by over 3 hours, then by bad weather. Upon return, I explained the situation, and representative was unhelpful, said there was nothing she could do, was very unprofessional, and raised her voice at me in front of other customers while I maintained a calm demeanor. I asked to speak to the manager, she called him, but he would refused speak with me. Extra day charges were removed two laters, however, when manager called me to tell me about the removed charges, seemed to be in a rush, and was unapologetic towards his delay, his refusal to speak with me, and his employees behavior. This was by far the worst experience I have had with a moving company.

We dropped off after hours so had no contact other than a phone call made earlier and the woman was extremely nice and helpful.

I was there before their scheduled hours to open and was pleasantly surprised to find them there too. I was out of there with my truck 10 minutes before they were scheduled to be open. Very friendly when I picked up and dropped off my truck. Would definitely utilize them again.
