The location was fine and we did not meet any of the personnel because we returned the truck after store hours. My ONLY complaint is the we were over 6 miles for our total allowed mileage BUT we returned the truck with almost a quarter of a tank more gas than we needed to and yet we were still charged $2.59 extra for the 6 mile overage. That is VERY disappointing, not because I can't afford the $3.00- but because you actually charged me when we left you with $25-$30 of our gas money in your truck's tank. So sad what this world is becoming. In general- I can't recommend U-haul for this reason.

slight leak in "mom's attic" in truck I rented. Truck did not have much power up hills. Very clean and easy to drive for someone not accustomed to driving such a large truck.

Waited in line for 10 minutes until someone from outside came in and took my keys without saying why. Followed them out and asked if I had to check out and they said no if I paid with credit card. So I guess lack of instructions for equipment return was a pain.

I was impressed at how easy it was to reserve a vehicle online. The gentlemen at the store were very friendly and helpful. They both get good marks from me!

Manager continued to talk on his cell phone for 10 to 15 minutes on personal matters even though I was right in front of him waiting to get my truck. Talk did not seem important.

Provide paper floor mats to use during the day or after the renter has washed the truck. I used a pizza box.

Dealt with 4 different people during this process and they all had excellent customer service skills. Down-to-Earth, friendly, knowledgeable. Good people make for good companies, glad to see you've figured that out. No recommendations for improvement, you are doing just fine in Altoona.

Well, I feel as though I should have only been charge for 4 days worth of rental fees rather than 5. Most likely U-Haul would not have rented that particular trailer because there were other 5 x 8 foot trailers to rent at that location and it would have made me a VERY happy customer to have saved some money.

Allowed mileage was not adequate to load and unload and drive to Altoona to drop.

I was not aware that I was not able to do a one day rental for a one way trailer rental. I was charged for two days. I picked up on 6/8/14 at 6:37pm and dropped off on 6/9/14 around 6:15pm. I called the Altoona Pa location that I rented from to let them know the location I dropped at was closed. I was under the impression it would be a one day charge.

People were really nice, especially the owner and the manager. It does seem like they need more people to answer the phones though. It is too difficult to call them directly and after 2 days of trying, I had to make a special trip just to talk to someone.

The speedometer and the gas gauge in the vehicle were inaccurate, the transmission screamed if I drove it empty or full. During my drive, I was terrified of breaking down. My "guaranteed available" U-HAUL actually wasn't there, pushing my move back an extra day, and I had to wait in line for half an hour to get up to the service counter the second day I tried to pick it up. They agreed to let me leave my personal vehicle in their parking lot over night, and when I arrived to claim it in the morning, someone had walked all over the hood. When I tried to claim the free month storage, I was told that U-HAUL simply posts links to storage units that it is not affiliated with, so I was not in fact eligible for it after all. This particular storage unit was dissatisfied with their dealings with the U-HAUL company overall, and in the process of cutting their ties. I've moved 6 or 7 times, and this was the first time - and the absolute last time - I will use U-HAUL.
