My original reservation was for a 24' at the Cohoes Ny location, I arrived to pick it up and was informed that they did not have the truck there, that the call center "messed up ". I chose Cohoes because it was the closest to my move. I was informed that I had to go to the Central Ave location, which is totally inconvenient, considering the cost of milage would be much higher. Also no notice given prior to truck puck up date. It is safe to say, I will not be using U Haul again .

I was surprised on how quick and efficient the process was. Moving is never an easy venture but uhaul made that part of it easier

When I arrived the person pulled together my equipment. However, the truck they have me was broken and the lights on it wouldn't work with the trailer. I spent the next hour in the parking lot waiting for the truck to be repaired. After the hour, still not fixed. I had to drive a half hour away to eventually get a working truck. Completely unacceptable.

I reserved it 4 24 hrs and only received it 4 less then that, and 4 that I should get a parcel refund, other then that, and had to go a distance 4 miles for the truck which was out of my way or further then I excepted, so it cost me more, then the one nearer to where I should of been able to get it from, not another 4-5 miles away, out of my way. As well as not having the size I needed so , the miles I put on, I would not had to if I was able to get the size and place to have gotten it from closer. Thank you for your service

Keep the employees there that you now have there. Daniel, and the other young man that was working the counter on 9/1/15 are an asset to your company! They are helpful and very professional! Thank you for a good team! I will be back to Colonie the next time I need to move something.

Truck was dirty in the cab, A/C did not always work to capacity, especially on the two long drives, general manager of the place was rude. He did not have the truck ready at 8:15 when I arrived. I showed him the email that the truck was GUARANTEED at 8am and he rudely stated that I was not there at 8am. I had in fact arrived at 8:15 due to traffic on my 45 MILE DRIVE to pick up the trick, in spite of the fact that I was told the day before that origination was to be just 4 miles from my house. RUDE managers, lie, lies, lies all along. No honesty, no concern that, no empathy just uncaring individuals. On top of that I used the labor service and was appalled. Almost everything arrived with some type of damage.

I'm disappointed that Uhaul is charging me a cleaning fee when the truck was returned in better condition than I received it. This appears to be a scam to get extra money out of the customers. Very disappointed uhaul. Bad customer service.

I had reserved my van online for 12:15pm on Sunday August 30th until 12:15pm on Monday August 31st. When I arrived at 12:10pm on Sunday the representative told me that I was reserved for 2:30pm. I had not been advised of this change until I arrived at UHaul, 21minutes earlier an email was sent to my account stating the change. 21 minutes is not enough notice to tell someone that something will not be available as reserved. I come back at 2:30pm and still there's no van, the person returning it told the representative that he was going to be an hour and 20 min late returning the van. The representative then stated that I would be getting a $50 credit and they would give me a 10ft truck instead. I return the truck on Monday August 31st at 12:40pm, the representative tells me that I was late returning the truck and was supposed to return the truck overnight at 2:30am. I stated that I reserved it for 24 hours, 12:15pm to 12:15pm, they changed my reservation to 2:30pm so it should've been until 2:30pm. The representative then stated that I would be charged for an additional day. I went inside to speak to someone else, I explained the situation and he told me that the reservations aren't guarantees, ok so what is the point of having a reservation then? Why would I even think that a truck could be returned at 2:30am when they close at 7? When I received the truck the representative never told me, ok the truck is due back tonight at 2:30am. I would have never agreed to that, a 1 day rental is a 24 hour rental not a 12 hour rental. This ended up getting resolved and I didn't have to pay for the extra day but it makes me not want to use UHaul again after having changes made to my reservations without even telling me or giving me sufficient notice.

Fuel Gauge on 15-17' trucks does not match the drawing on contract, makes it very hard for customers/employees.

I used this U-Haul facility because the U-Haul facility at 139 Broadway in Albany, NY was an unpleasant experience. The U-Haul facility at 2043 Central was friendly, clean, organized and check-in time and check-out time was excellent (approximately 5 mins to check-in and 2 mins to check-out). The same person handled the check in and check out on at your Central Ave location, her name was Krystal. I would say she is one of your best employees. She is smart, courteous, expedient, professional and has excellent interpersonal skills. Krystal should be commended for her results.

Canceled the reservation because the staff messed up the time twice. Then got a bill emailed to me that had someone else's name on it and my credit card information. Called to complain and I was told the GM would call me, who never did. Never again.

This location was good except the check engine light was on in the truck entire time. Also only 6 furniture pads when we ordered 24. The cohoes location was terrible. Customer service actually lied about pick up time and was absolutely unaccomodating when no truck was available. Would never use that location again and will certainly let folks know to avoid it as well.

It was raining during pickup and trailer park was awash in 6+ inches of standing water - storm drains not working. No issues otherwise.
