Location is further than I would like. Also ran into a snag with getting the truck out of the spot - spot F. Krystal came out and helped me, got it out of there, but still... could be done better. Maybe if parked trucks on an angle the other direction, with rear tipped away from corner?

My reservation was moved to a different location, which wasn't clearly communicated. I spent over an hour driving around the area to current (and former) UHaul locations trying to find my truck. The staff at the final location were very helpful about making the experience right, but it still complicated our move.

The associate who checked me in was amazing. I will use this location again.

From walking in the door Krystal the desk attendant was pleasant knowledgable and professional. She went herself and got the truck, further explained the process. The truck was extremely rough riding, the engine was load the acceleration was very slow. The transmission was knocking and truck was 15 years old so had no charger or cup holder. Truck was awful. The key was lost by one of my movers and after many lost hours both manpower and transporting, the battery died, my own vehicle was sideswiped, then the lock to a new key turned out to be wrong. A security company had to work for several more hours and a new locksmith had to be called. It turned out the lock had been changed before and the new number was sharpie penned in underneath. No key could have been made if the second locksmith had not found that random marking. Three full days of paying labor for what wAs a one day move, I went to fill the tank with gas to return the truck and filled it to the 3/4 mark afterwards driving I noticed the gas gauge was going down instead up so I pulled in and put more gas in when I pulled from the pump the side of the truck was puntured by a random bar that prevents the pumps from getting hit. Overall except for all the Uhaul personall the experience was the worst in my many, many, rentals with Uhaul. Where are all the diesels? Zackery the Colonie manager was fantastic too!

The manager said there`s your truck out front no one to assist, go over vehicle, two young men were talking. The rt side lower dash pad was hanging off we brought it to their attention, the one guy put a green sticker on it, we refastened it.The rt side mirror was adjusted so far out could not see rt side of truck, we could not adjust as it had a hex head screw. The rear wheels rt side had a brake noise, possible caliper hanging up.The cargo light stayed on even when switch was turned to rt and sometimes would be off,at night when we needed it no such luck.The headlights were adjusted to shine down maybe 10 ft out,very limited visibility compounded by very smeared interior glass shield and door glasses.Seat padding was also bad as it is falling apart.The man who used to run this location was spot on he`s now in Rotterdam NY. Over all I would never go back to this location.Please don`t have this manager contact me either.

The trailer lights did not work properly, this delayed my move to day light hours. Other wise a very good experience.

It's hard to recommend based off my experience--my truck broke down in the middle of a road, I held up traffic, I waited over an hour for towing to come, then waited an additional hour while the towing company tried to work on the truck. I then had to call a family member to drive their pickup truck out to help get the remaining items out of the UHaul, defeating the purpose of me renting the truck. Really poor experience overall.

I think the water cooler should be closer to the rest rooms or snack machine. I bought a bottle of water then noticed you had a full cooler across the room.

Staff was efficient and professional - vehicle was in very good condition. Have used UHaul previously and will continue to rent from them as needed.

The stated fuel level on the contract was at the full line. Upon reading the gauge when I started driving it read halfway between the full line and the 7/8 line. I was miss quoted approx 3-4 gallons of gaston which I had to pay for to be back at the full line.

Uhaul never Fails to impress us. Everyone was great, from the cust serv rep to the van recipient outside. Keep up the good work! Oh, and the prices can't be beat.

I really enjoyed the service that I was given. I can't remember the guys name (Tom maybe?) but he was super friendly and helped me get everything hitched ip with the trailer and my Prius. Definitely a great experience

Very well run and well staffed facility. I have been getting several trucks per month from there for years ....since 1998. This main U-Haul facility has improved it's truck quality and service reliability HUGELY in last 8-10 years. Recommend highly.
