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.

I reserved a truck earlier in the week and when I got there, they had given my truck to someone else. Luckily the person who rented my truck needed a larger one, so we had to wait about 40 minutes for that individual to unload and return it. The man at the desk did nothing to help us out or make their mistake right.

I reserved a 24 foot truck the week before. When Inarrived to pick up the truck, I was told that the keys to the 24' truck was lost and the biggest truck they had was a 20 foot. I had no other option, so I rented the 20 foot truck and as I suspected, it was not big enough for my move. I had a very bad experience. Paul Hutchens 518-595-3321 P_hutchens@yahoo.com

We had to call a "ticket" in because there was some sort of oil or motor substance leak in the back. Which I have pictures to prove this. My furniture that I moved now smells like it and I have very disappointed.

What I didn't appreciate was charging me for 2 days rental. I had reserved a storage unit at the same time I reserved the truck and the paperwork wasn't processed for it at the time, therefore we could not unload. And returning the truck at 7 am wasn't possible because you don't open until 9. I also was charged 2 days for a dolly that clearly wasn't used and your associate even said it wasn't used and won't be charged then showed up on bill. When I saw this and called Joshua told me no one can refund money except the manager who wasn't in and I had to wait the next day. This is the third time this year I rented from you this year alone!! I am not happy.

General Comment for U-Haul and other truck rental companies: Add aftermarket cameras for backing up and blind spot assistance, since most rented trucks are driven by people who do not drive a truck for a living. This is a feature that is becoming commonplace in many cars (my personal car, a 2013 Honda Accord, has a backup and right side view mirror camera).

I had a 2pm reservation. When I arrived at the store there was only one cashier working the register and one employee helping customers in the lot. There were 3 people ahead of me in line who were purchasing packing materials. It was about 2:15 before the cashier was able to help me. I didn't leave the store until 2:45. The cashier didn't have the right password to access the system. Eventually another cashier came in. After about 20 minutes waiting on the first cashier, the second one came over and put his password in so I could leave. The cab of the truck was clean, but the box smelled like some had been hauling trash.

The rear driver side tire shredded on NYS 87 all the rest of the tires were fine (2 axle trailer). The biggest issue, I believe, had to do with either communication between Uhaul's telecom center and T & T Towing. I was asked to send a text from my phone so the telecom operation could get my location. Now the fact that the telecom op is in Arizona may be part of the problem. When the tow truck driver called me, he asked for a mile marker, I could not see one so I told him that I was 1/2 mile south of exit 20 on 87 and could see the lights from the Great Escape theme park. After a few choice words the truck driver told me that the telecom center told him that I was on NYS 90 west bound. Now for anyone familiar with upstate NY, I was probably 50 miles north of NYS 90. I have no idea from where the break down came, what I do know is my first text from roadside op was 6:25 pm and the truck arrived at 8:25 pm.

The running lights didn't work they kept blowing the fusses in are truck ,it leaked I had so much laundry cause everything got soaked. That's why we went with enclosed trailer so we didn't worry about the weather.

Reservation was very easy, pickup was very easy, drop off was also easy but took a little while due to high number of other customers at that time. Gentleman checking trucks in/out was very polite and hard-working. Cost wasnt too bad either for what I had to move.

Check in was a little slow because one Agent was on the phone for awhile, however as soon as the other Agent showed up he got me squared away fast and upon return it was quick. I like this location better than the downtown one. The trailer was excellent! Thank you.

I was given a reservation and when I went to the original location they told me they overbooked it and it wasn't available. They sent me to another location which had the van but it was $25 more. I told them I wanted the rate I was originally quoted and they told me there was nothing they could do about it. I will never us uhaul again and I'll make sure to share my nasty experience.

Walked in the door, both associates busy with our customers didn't even acknowledge with a "someone will be right with you." Then, when checking in the truck the gentleman tries to tell me that I owe money for fuel when the gauge was clearly where it was on the pick-up paper. Advised him he was wrong and he obliged.

Pickup was executed smoothly. The trailer performed admirably. Drop-off occurred after hours and went smoothly. I was concerned that I would not be able to lift the trailer off the hitch. It took a huge effort. I'd suggest you install a trailer jack on your larger models to make it easier for we senior citizens.
