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.

The person calling to set up a pick up time should also state the location for pick up. When I reserved the truck online I had selected a different location, but when the woman called me to confirm a pick up time she never mentioned that the location had been changed.

had a TERRIBLE experience at the 63rd street location in DSM caused mostly by misinformation on the fault of the Bondurant location. It was a breath of fresh air to have a knowledgeable and customer friendly person in Ames to deal with. The manager at the 63rd location was rude and simply didn't care that our entire reservation was screwed up. He simply said that there was no truck for us and we were out of luck. Upon calling another location I was told who I needed to call. The scheduling manager was friendly enough and found us the truck in Ames. Overall we were happy with this location but extremely unhappy with the UHAUL company as a whole. We will NEVER use uhaul again!

It was not the dealers fault, but the 26' vehicle ordered over one month in advance was not available. I had to travel 130 miles to pick up this truck and 75 miles to pick up another truck to match the requirements of the one truck. It cost me over $250 extra in fuel.

Very prompt and efficient experience and I couldn't find anything to improve upon.

Location caused me to have to drive extra 60 miles for pickup, yet the guy who called me acted like he was doing me a favor having a truck ready for me. He also called a second time to tell me I better arrive two hours earlier than we had agreed or I risked losing it. His office person called me back a few minutes later and told me to disregard that message. Overall, just found it frustrating that I was having to "fight" for a truck I had contracted and paid for.

The moving dolly was in poor shape (small wheels and rough bare metal on the stair runners). The stair runners damaged my steps so much I ended up not using it and purchasing my own furniture dolley at Lowe's. Would NOT recommend to anyone to get a UHAUL dolly for regular household moving. In constract, moving truck was new and well maintained.

I was delayed in bringing my rented truck back, completely my fault and let the location know as soon as I realized my mistake. The young lady was very understanding and I let her know I was more than willing to pay a late fee. When I came to drop it off I paid for the extra day. However, there was a gentleman there, who berated me for bringing it in back late, even after I apologized several times. I felt extremely uncomfortable for having a simple misunderstanding on return time. I will most likely never do Uhaul business again through this location.

girl at the front desk was competent, quick and very nice. But the guy who worked in the back and hooked up the trailer was disgusting. Dirty, unhelpful, rude and he didn't even do safety checks on the brake lights and turn signals.

Disappointed I was not given a military or AAA discount like I was informed over the phone. I was told I would get one at pickup. Did not happen.

Moving supplies were not available from my online order. Gas tanks at 3/8 full. Fill them up.

We were very happy with the service we received at this location. The 2 girls in the front office were extremely efficient and friendly. Thank you!!

Not much. It was a busy pick-up day: college move-out weekend, but i only waited a few minutes to complete the paperwork, get hooked up and on my way.

The truck was ready when I arrived. There are good people at Buds
