Our line for our windshield washer fluid froze and we had to make frequent stops off the interstate during a snow storm to clean our windshield ! This was annoying !

Very friendly staff, was familiar with local moving help contractor and was able to recommend and reassure me regarding any doubts I had about scheduling and answered all my questions. The move with a 26 ft U-Haul truck from Tyrone, PA to Catlett , VA went very well thanks to advice and help I recieved.

The fuel tank was not at 3/4 tank fuel level as indicated when I signed the papers to rent the truck. The level was at 1/2 tank full. Upon entering the truck I took a picture to show proof of the level of the gas tank. The staff were very kind and considerate when I returned the truck, at the same gas level as when I drove it out of their parking lot. I believe verification of the gas level needs to be done by the staff, with the individual leasing the truck, present. In my situation, it helped to take a picture for proof of the gas tank level as the truck was only leased for two hours and driven only about 7 miles.

Nothing. Robert was absolutely wonderful. He went out of his way to help me. I changed my return location and he was so helpful and kind. I will always use U-Haul each and every time I need a rental vehicle.

1 of the moving blankets that I rented was very, very muddy. I did comment when I returned them as that one should not have been given to me to use.

Altoona location was wonderful and accommodating. How ever, Uhaul overall needs better communication. The lady that called me for scheduling from Harrisburg, PA office (Sue Ann) didn't know where trucks were and how much they could hold. I scheduled on Tuesday a 26' truck. On Friday Harrisburg office called me to tell me the 26' that I requested was over an hour away the opposite direction. And that was the closest one. After about 30 minutess on the phone, she gave me two 14' trucks that were 1 hour away but gave me an extra day to pick up because of needing 2 drivers. So on that same day I go to the Uhaul to pick up the 2 trucks and surprise there is a 24' and a 26' truck on the Altoona lot. I spoke with the employees there and they said sure I could rent the 26' like I had scheduled and they would give me the extra mileage and the extra day for my trouble. Altoona Uhaul was great. Scheduling department needs to get correct information or pick up the phone and see exactly what is on a locations lot. What a time to be frustrated and worried about how to get belongings moved on a weekend. If your going to rent don't do it online until they upgrade their communication scheduling. Just because there is a Uhaul in your town doesn't mean you won't have to drive an hour or more to pick up your rental truck or trailer. Best advice, call the closest Uhaul and speak with some one that is working there.

I used a Cargo van for local moving...it was the latest model, and very clean inside. Also, very easy to drive. It was a cold day, and the heater worked beautifully.

Was very satisfied with the ability and helpfulness of the employees. Both made my experience painless and easy. The equipment was in good shape and functioned well. I cannot think of a single suggestion for improvement. That being said, I started my U-Haul experience in Huntingdon where I was somewhat disappointed with their unprofessionalism. I also found the U-Haul phone service center to be unwieldy. The Altoona location definitely saved my experience. Highly recommend them!
