Way too expensive. I rented a pick up truck for just one day. I only drove locally. It ended up costing me $61.00 FOR JUST ONE DAY with just a pickup truck. WAY TOO MUCH $$. I could have rented a pick up or van from local rental car place for $14.95 a day (unlimited mileage.) I am moving next week & need to rent another pick up truck for 2 day local move. Unfortunatly, I will NOT be choosing Uhaul, too expensive.

The moving truck usage is fine, but trying to close out my storage unit turned out to be a pain. I had a storage unit where the insulation was coming down and the dirt and fiberglass got all over my furniture. . Then thinking I closed out my storage unit I get a Laure notice in the mail. Problem was I closed it. Called uhaul and talked to someone he's questioning me like I work there and like I'm supposed to know what they have to do to close a unit out. He said he was going to send someone to inspect the unit and call me back he never called me back. To top it off my furniture was covered in whatever fell from their ceilings I had insurance on my unit and no one offered to even refund anything at least for cleaning cost on my furniture.

Open your store for the hours posted!!! Had an 8am truck pick up, reservation and the store opens at 7. Got there at 8 and no one was there except for an employee still waiting for a manager to get in to open. Had to call customer service twice for them to get in touch with the regional manager. Finally at 8:30 someone got there to open up. My reservation had been confirmed the day before. It is absolutely unacceptable to open a store an hour and a half late, even moreso when you have reservations confirmed. I sincerely hope the one in charge of opening is reprimanded.

When I picked up the trailer the rep hooked up the trailer to my suv which was great as it was cold outside. When I got the trailer home there was what I thought was aprox 2 inches of snow. When I walked into the trailer to sweep it out so I could use it, I quickly realized it was nothing but ice (causing me to fall and cut up my arm) under a light dusting of snow. I had to salt and breakup ice to be able to use the trailer. Completly unacceptable (pictures available to prove this).

I reserved a 10' box truck on line with a credit card for 1:15pm on Saturday and they didn't have it. I had to take a van and could not get all the stuff in I needed to. So I had to make two trips instead of one.

When i picked up the truck at 9am it only had 1/4 tank of fuel. i asked the clerk if he could fill up the truck with fuel he said no. i explained to him that i didnt have time to stop and put gas in the truck first thing in the morning and that he should make sure that when a customer recieves a rental truck it should be filled prior to a customer coming in.

I needed a pick up to move some bags of ice melt so I went to uhual for a truck.. The guy who helped me out (Patrick) was very friendly and knowledgeable.. I did have 1 issue of the truck's fuel and mileage did not match the paperwork but Patrick was quick to take care of the issue. I have been a customer of uhual for a couple years now spending at least 1-2k a year at uhual and this location is doing a lot better now that it has new management . I gave the store and average for overall rate only because it is under construction and u have to duck under wires to get in .... Other then that I'm very happy over all ..

nothing at this location. "Safe Move" charges should not automatically be added to the bill by Corporate, when picking up the truck.

The trailer I rented had several extremely sharp welds that I was cut on, I dulled some with a hammer. Poor QC when manufactured.

I rented two trucks this past week. Both times, I was over charged. The first time, I was charged for an extra day rental and insurance. This was adjusted by the manager. This time, the insurance was charged at $28 when I only selected the $14 package. Also, my storage unit access card has not worked once. All in all, great team at this location. I would like to get my $14 back for the most recent transaction. Thanks for everything! -Nick C

Vehicle was not ready when I got there, but they were busy. Low tire signal was on the whole time - 4 hours; also speedometer registered 80 when I was doing 40 MPH. Manager said he would address it.

Actually, the pick up location that was sent to me via a text and email confirmation was 40 Simmons Lane in Menands. I went there at 10am on Sunday morning (a $35 cab ride) only to find a very confused but nice employee. I then had to take a $29 cab ride to the Central avenue location, and got there around 11am. This made me over an hour late with my move and cost me $64. When I called Central Ave to confirm that my truck was in fact there, their computers all showed it was being at Menands as well, so there were multiple errors.

First trailer lights not working second time it has happened at this location. Trailer had snow in it, if I'm renting it I shouldn't have to clean it.

Waited 50 minutes for employees to find a key. One person had a key and was late to work. Arrived at 0700 and left at 0800. Had help waiting at the house for 45 minutes. However, the Manager was very apologetic and discounted my rental. I feel this was very nice and appropriate.

i rented a trailor to move my motorcycle. It was ok till the running lights quit working, and I had no choice but to drive. It was a two day rental, and when I told the Uhaul person about it, he refunded one day of the rental.. It was a nice way to say sorry...
