The customer service at this location was outstanding but the truck I was given was filthy and in desperate need of maintenance. The cab was dirty (I could literally draw in the dust on the steering column and dashboard) and had a very bad smell. The transmission slipped/jerked in the 1st and 2nd gears, the turn signals worked with the headlights off but once the headlights were turned on the left turn signal would not work. The engine was really struggling to move the vehicle. Going up a small hill was nearly impossible. The latch on the driver's door kept falling so the door could not be closed without prying the latch back open with a screwdriver. I have never had such a terrible experience with a UHaul vehicle. If it were not for the extremely friendly staff I would advise everyone to stay FAR away from this location.

I wasn't greeted when I came in, so I wasn't really sure who to talk to / where to go to pick up my rental truck. Service was friendly when I found the right person to talk to, however.

Very prompt and friendly. They quickly checked over the truck, told us about additional charges and we were able to get on our way quickly.

The open trailer I rented had a bunch of snow in it; otherwise it was clean. However, I registered for the trailer on your web site to be picked up at a different location (East Tallmadge Ave). Your company changed the pick-up location without notifying me. This was problematic.

We rented the truck from uhal for the day. BEWARE IT IS A SCAM !!!!!!!!!! When we picked the truck up at 7am they said by the way its due by 1pm. I asked weeks before getting it and they said it would be due back by the end of the closing day. DO NOT GO TO THIS LOCATION. MATER OF FACT ASK FOR WHAT THE DAY MEANS IN WRITING. Then when I called to complain no one called me back. VERY POOR SERVICE. Look some where else. No way are we the frist that this has happened to. Iwill NEVER EVER USE UHAL AGAIN! !!!!!!!

Overall I was satisfied with my experience. However, it must be noted that the truck I was given was in poor running condition. I rented a 26' truck and it was very old and dilapidated. The transmission barely shifted through the gears. It was extremely hard to stop and every time I had to start the truck, it took two or three attempts to turnover. I think its time to reinvest and purchase some newer equipment.

Our truck had a crack in the front bumper and very little tread on the driver rear tire which made it very difficult for us in the snow on several occasions.Give them the time to inspect the equipment more extensively: don't book trucks so tightly. Also let people know that when they must bring a truck back late they will be charge a fee and an extra full day. Not anticipating weather delays, etc. may have been poor planning on our part but misinformation was the responsibility of u haul I should have kept it until the end of the day.

I had to go to this location because my initial reservation was put in incorrectly by the first person I spoke with.

Electric cord from the trailer to vehicle was too short.

I waited for 25 minutes .nobody was in side the building at all. I kept calling and people from a other location answered and they couldn't get in touch with nobody. Then after 25 minutes a lady and a guy came in and said they eere in another building but they didnt see my car on camera. I was parked out front by the entrance so I dont know how they didnt see that I was there. I was very upset and i didnt even get a discount or anything. I should be compensated.

I put too much fuel back into the tank ...about 25 extra gallons. I would have liked to have been credited 50 dollars ( 2 dollars a gallon).
