The website needs updating. I was allowed to complete amtransaction in which I believed I had rented a 24' truck for seven days. Transaction completed , showed billing, everything. Only to receive a phone call an hour later advising that the teuck was only available for (1) day. Had to go to different location, rent a smaller truck one way & return it to the original location to get the one way rate. NOT an acceptable busi ess practice. Just fix the web site so people don't think they are all set when, in fact, they aren't . Very poor business practice.

Website was a little confusing. Not all listed locations handle all vehicles. Your personnel at the Colonie location were very polite, efficient and accommodating.

The truck abs indicator light came on 5 minutes after picking up the truck. Roadside assistance told us to ignore it. After loading the truck and driving it for 25 minutes, the truck shut off in the middle of an intersection, blocking traffic. The truck had to be towed back to the store.

Kevin was excellent when we came to pick up the truck. He was able to have fun and interact with my mom and I, make a joke about "yeah we just sold your truck". He was knowledgeable about the equipment and the details of the rental agreement. He had a great sense of urgency as he has to get my truck from another lot and had customers waiting. When I dropped off the young man was extremely kind (I was sorry I didn't get his name). He came right out looked over the truck and asked if I had an problems. He also had a sense of urgency. He asked if I wanted a printed copy of the receipt. I think this is important because not everyone organizes their bills the same way. I was very impressed with the great service. You have amazing people working for the company who truly care. Thank you!!

I was there on a Saturday morning. It was very busy and there was one person working the counter and getting the customers the equipment. I just wanted to say he did a terrific job taking care of everything and he was very professional! I definitely plan on using your service again.

Well firstly I arrived a few minutes early and got my paperwork and then waited for an hour for someone to help me with my rental trailer. Hire more help maybe?

The employees did a great job with every step of the process. They went above and beyond to help me. I never rented or drove with a trailer before. They made it easy for me.

First trailer the lights did not work. Second trailer after all hooked up since the lights worked, was not for long distance use and after had to go for the third trailer. However, the trailer number of the trailer was not properly noted on the paperwork making the Uhaul in NC to have to figure things out.

Customer service upon entering this location was very poor. I was third in line with one person at the computer checking people in. Two employees were installing signage for about 20 minutes while I waited for the one girl to process the people before me. No care in the world, just continued to install signage. It was awkward, uncomfortable and painful to sit there and listen to the girl explain your policies and procedures. I won't rent trucks from this place again.

Friendly and helpful staff. They answered all my questions. The wait time wasn't bad even though I went at a busy time so it was to be expected. They even let me leave my car overnight to pack my trailer and come back from the car dolly and load my car the next day! Thanks!

As a U-Haul employee, { Capitol Repairs} I'm proud of our Company and the service that we give .

Reserved a motorcycle trailer and at pick up day no motorcycle trailer. Forced to rent your open utility trailer for more money. Not a good way to do business.

I normally use the U-Haul in down town Albany, NY. When I called to reserve a 15' truck I was re-rooted to 2043 Central Ave. I made the reservation on line and even did the express paper work on line, too. When I got the 2043 Central Ave I had to wait a half an hour just to get to the check in counter. I've never in all my years renting from U-Haul had to wait that long. What is the sense of filling out express paperwork if you have to wait a half hour? When I returned the truck the same issue, one person working the counter. There were four people waiting in line and not happy. I've never seen a U-Haul where you had to wait in line for so long. The other issue I have is that by being re-rooted to a different location cost me added time to drive the extra 13 miles to pick up a truck which I usually drive 5 miles. I had to pay U-Haul an extra $20.00 to rent the truck because of the extra mileage not to mention the extra fuel. So, I spent an extra 40 minutes driving to and from, waited an hour in line, to pay $20.00 more for a truck. I will never go back to 2043 Central Ave location again. I will make alternate arrangements with your downtown Albany location where I've never had to wait in line primarily because they have two people at the counter at the appropriate times.

Did not have the truck we asked for. Upgraded to a larger truck which was much too big, had a poor ride, and got worse gas mileage.

I did not return to this location. I returned to Doc Auto, 908 Ocean St., Santa Cruz. I was overbilled for 2247 miles that I did not drive. I returned the truck with ~85100 miles, and it was recorded as 87343. This has been very disappointing, and I will be considering alternatives to U-Haul for my future vehicle rental needs.

Both of my recent visits to UHAUL were marked by dismissive delays. Calls to UHAUL to retrieve an item left in the cab of a truck were never answered. twice in one day I waited on the phone without anyone servicing me, with one call lasting nearly 40 minutes. That call ended in being thrown back into the cue and then, a dead line. unbelievable.
