The best U-haul location in the capital district! Awesome service!

I was overcharged for gas & the mileage was NOT correct. I plan to complain to the company & ask for a full refund. The speedometer said I did 22+ miles. When I checked on my own trip meter, I had only done 14 miles. U-Haul said the gas tank was full when I picked up but I needed to put $13 + in the tank in order to drive 14 miles, a total screw job.

The first truck skipped like hell and I didn't think it would make it around the block to get back to U-Haul, just to have the guy try to tell me that's the way they run. ( I'm a mechanic ) The second truck was ok except we couldn't see out the windshield at night ( real dirty ) Oh well what can one expect at that price..

The check in process was great. The GM Scott is fantastic and really does care about the customer. When I went to return the van, it was a long wait due to a few returns at once. The pick up and reservation was fantastic, the return, a little cumbersome. Also, the environmental fee added on is a bit annoying as well. Is that a fee to U-Haul or is that a tax?

Do not leave your customers on side of road broken down for 4 hours! And then expect them to find someway to get to a replacement truck, 17 mikes away!!also, there was no reason for the " shop manager " to take an hour to authorize a tow!!! Was unable to even pick up items to move! And had to get family member to drive 3 hours to pick me up and bring me home another 2 hours away!

The staff were professional and very helpful. Just rented a trailer to pick up a washer and dryer. Picked out the wrong one on line but they had an open trailer that worked and got us on our way. Easy check-in and check-out was even easier. Thanks!

There were bottles and food wrappers throughout front and back of truck. Pick up location was moved several miles away after making these arrangements months in advance to avoid this.

Everything went great. The people who work there are extremely helpful. My only problem was that just now I checked my credit card and was billed twice. Once for the estimate when I picked up the truck and once for the actual total when I turned it in. Now I will have to spend the time to sort this out with them, and it has already been an exhausting move...would have been nice if they hadn't done that.

i rented a cargo van the first day and had no problems.the second day we used a 14 ft truck and returned after hours.i was then charged $27 for cleaning.i know there was nothing in truck but wad told it had to be swept causing the charge. ridiculous. then today on my bank account i find i was charged twice. they debited my account two times for the difference between estimate and end charges-once by itself and then as part of the total charge.i called local uhaul who transferred to cust service who told me i cant be forwarded to credit card unit to correct until west coast time.ur double charging has caused a check to bounce and bank fees now. i am FURIOUS and going to follow up this complaint further.

Very happy with customer service and van rental price. However, on two occasions there were no shorty wardrobe boxes available.

The employees were helpful, but I did not want to pick up the truck from here because there is a location just a block away from my previous address. Very inconvenient, uhaul should have employees deliver trucks when possible as opposed to making the customer take a cab or public trans.

The confirmed reservation I had changed 3 times. Then I was informed only 12 hours before I was supposed to pick up the truck that it wasn't available for the time I requested AND that I had to pick one up over 15 Miles away from where we made the reservation. Your staff was unapologetic but said "this has been happening all weekend", so yeah, not pleased with the service. And your website says reservations are guaranteed but your traffic division says they are never guaranteed.

Dropped off truck after hours, so I can't speak to the personnel, but there were no instructions on site for where to leave the truck, which was a bit confusing.

I reserved the uhaul for the Rotterdam location then had to go all the way out to colonie to pick it up and drop it off and I did not reserve it for this location.

I had a $20 gift certificate and the employee manning the register did not know how to use it. When I voiced my concerns, he blew me off and told me I could use it when I dropped off the truck.

Customer service was excellent assuring I had what I reserved and going out of their way to accomodate. Upon return they fairly adjusted my rental to what I used and took everthing into account. Very satisfied.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Van had about 500 miles on it and was in amazing condition. This is the only place to rent a van/truck in albany, as far as I'm concerned.

Interior windshield was filthy...rear door of truck worked poorly at times did not shut without significant force and effort... Customer service guys were very good and thou rough... Just maintain the vehicles better before sending out on another rental
