Provide more staff. The poor young woman behind the counter was swamped, the gentleman who attached the trailer was surly, and there was *no one* to un-hitch the trailer and move it. I ended up un-hitching it myself and I'm far too old for that. A poor experience.

I was originally supposed to pick up in A Des Moines location but the truck was not there even though I reserved it a week earlier and had to drive from west Des Moines to the Ames location to pick it up and my reservation information wasn't even there. Ames office was nice and helpful but overall not happy about having uhaul pick up take as long as it did and isn't acceptable when I made a reservation that said the truck would be at the specific location. Not sure about using uhaul for my next move based on this experience

We did not go during store hours so we didn't see inside, but the customer service representative on the phone was very helpful.

The place was very congested - hardly room to find a place to park. Beyond that, staff were helpful and everything went well.

They need to really make sure to call about pick up times. Though they had my correct phone number and email address, I was never given a pick up time the day before I was moving. They told me they "tried to contact me," but since I was next to my phone all day in areas with good reception (and had no missed calls) I am skeptical. Moving far away is hard enough, and this added to my stress.

Poor overall rating but have to use it. I understand that at the moving season everyone tries to rent a truck and the truck have to be rented for only 4 hours. But I reserved the truck five month early and reserved it for 24 hours. When I get to the place, they let me sigh a paper said that every 15min over 4hrs I have to pay for 100 dollars. They didn't let me know this at the first place when I reserve the vehicle. They said it was mentioned in the confirmation email. I went back and check my email. THERE IS NO SUCH WORD! The experience sucks and I would change to budget or Penske next time.

Nothing, it was great! Very helpful and timely service. I would use again anytime I need to move.

Only two people at the counter to help people. When its busy it takes a long time to get your paperwork and complete the pre check of the trucks. It runs into the rental time.

Don't forget to check under the seats. I found a tin of Snus and a gatorade bottle with the remnants of spit in it.

I rented a 5x8 foot trailer for the weekend to move my daughter home from ISU. I paid for my 5x8 foot trailer Friday night per their recommendation but didn’t want to pick it up until Saturday since i had a wedding Friday night and didn’t want to haul the trailer to that event. When i got there Saturday to pick it up it was gone. there were no other trailers to substitute either. They had one at Buds about 4 miles away and i had to go there and pick it up. Not sure how that could have happened but in my opinion un-acceptable. I would really like to hear what the real story was since I plan on renting another trailer in August but now that my confidence level id “0” I’m not sure I feel comfortable renting from U-Haul.

I will NEVER use U-Haul again nor would I EVER suggest anyone use your service over U-Pack, Budget, Penske, etc. We reserved our truck over a week in advance only to be notified LESS THAN 24 HOURS PRIOR TO PICK RESERVE DATE THAT YOU HAD NO AVAILABLE TRUCKS. We had to pick up our truck in Ames, IA; 2 HOURS ROUNDTRIP FROM OUR ORIGINAL LOCATION!!! The truck itself was a piece of crap. We had reserved moving help which had to be rescheduled at our expense because we were notified 12 HOURS BEFORE OUR RESERVED PICK UP TIME THAT YOU HAD OVERBOOKED YOUR TRUCKS!!!! Let me state that again...NOTIFIED 12 HOURS BEFORE OUR RESERVED PICK UP TIME!!!! TO TOP THINGS OFF, YOU WANTED ME TO DRIVE TO NEBRASKA TO PICK UP THE TRUCK I RESERVED!!! THAT IS LIKE SHOWING UP IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA FOR A HOTEL ROOM AND ASKING ME TO DRIVE TO ATLANTA FOR A ROOM!!! GET A CLUE!! YOU ARE NOT BOOKING HOTEL ROOMS OR PLANE TICKETS. YOU ARE RESERVING TRUCKS THAT IMPACT PEOPLES JOBS, START DATES, LEASE DATES, AND LIVES. IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH PEOPLE BOOKING YOUR EQUIPMENT ONLINE AND THEN CANCELING OR NOT SHOWING UP FOR THE EQUIPMENT THEN REQUIRE A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT AT THE TIME OF BOOKING ONLINE!!!! I WILL NEVER REFER YOUR COMPANY AND WILL NEVER USE YOU AGAIN. I MAY LOOK INTO LEGAL OPTIONS AGAINST YOUR COMPANY.

Well to get my equipment I had to go to 2 different stores, when I was called the day before and told to go the first store. They didn't have my reservation and said I was wrong. They tried to call the main line and got no response. After I called and was on hold for 25 min I found out that my rental was at another location when I was told it was not there. Got to buds they were nice but I HAD TO CONNECT THE TRAILER. The guy was too old and couldn't move the equipment. Otherwise buds was great. The location on duff - they need to get there heads out of you know what.
