manager agreed to my request to pick up a cargo van 3 hours early for a one day rental but did not point out that he was running the credit card as a two day rental when I gave him my return time estimate. The following day after returning on time and studying the receipt, I questioned the clerk but both she and the manager subsequently refused to refund the additional day they had printed in the contract because I picked up the van early. I called UHaul customer service and 3 days later received an email from the manager informing me 1 day charge had been refunded to my credit card. In 40 years of renting vehicles and equipment I have never been charged extra for picking up early the same day the rental starts when the item is on the lot and ready to go. You need to educate the staff regarding the difference in accommodating a customer at the pickup time when the item is waiting on the lot versus the need to charge overtime for late returns when other customers are waiting to pay for the next rental. I was especially disgusted with the managers attitude because he neglected to point out the additional charge when I questioned him at time of departure about additional charges in the case of a late return. His interaction with me reflected either incompetence or deceit. David Carter

Be ready to provide the scheduled equipment that I prescheduled or offer me something for the valuable time I lost, which caused me to keep the equipment 2 days instead of 1. Then, I was blessed with having to pay for a second day, because of your mistake. And, Y'all did not offer me an apology or even a discount. Crappy service and por manager was all I got, although the young lady at the counter did her job well. Management did nothing positive.

There was a slight mistake with the contract but they corrected it without incident. I was very pleased with my experience.

I rented a 14' truck and drove 49.7 miles, 40+ miles of that highway at 55mph. When I refilled the truck, it took 5.84 gallons, making my trip a 8.51 mpg trip. I asked the clerk what type of mileage the vehicle should receive, and he said around 14 mpg. I suspect the person before me didn't fill the tank up fully, and I was the recipient of having to pay extra $$ for gas. The service was good, the truck ran fine. It's just that I feel I had to pay extra $$ for someone else's error. I did explain this to the clerk, he apologized, but that was the end of it.

Charged 20 miles extra. Charged pads extra. Worst customer service I received from U-Haul. Total charge was $61. U-Haul charged $130.

Before customer takes vehicle, the lease agent should do a turn signal, and brake light check prior to departure. Checking them upon return does little to help the customer if an issue already exists. Otherwise, great service and nice vehicle.

I feel the employees did an excellent job and were very cordial to me during the rental and return process.

The drop off procedure was super efficient and painless. It was nice he could do everything on his handheld, even putting the extra miles on the same credit card I'd used for the initial rental, and sending the receipt via email. The only caveat is that I waited for about 10m outside with my truck (as the sign told me to) before giving up and coming in to the office to fetch a representative. Not a big deal to do so, but the outdoor signage was misleading.

Not a very friendly employee. Zero greeting or thank you. Strictly business which is ok, but a little smile or a thank you would have been nice after spending $800.

Staff was very helpful. The trailer did have a couple of lights out which needed attention prior to leaving.

I believe I was overcharged for my rental. The people who helped me when I arrived where not there when I returned and no notations had been made in my contract to the change of vehicle and how I would be charged. More notations would be helpful when returning.

The staff were fantastic. I had originally requested a trailer that was too small, and they helped me exchange it for one that could hold everything. Thank you!

The truck and renting the truck was very good overall. We rented it on Sunday afternoon and returned it four hours later after hours. We parked it as the sign directed, on the south side of the store. When we got our receipt we were charged for usage of the furniture pads and the dolly. We did not use either. I called the location and they said they would send a check. It arrived today. We were also charged for two days rental when we only rented the truck for four hours. They did not see the truck on the lot. The mileage we were charged for was within a mile of our last check. The employee or owner originally said they would refund the extra day but they did not. Instead he called my husband and said they had tried to call us on Monday looking for the truck. It was "in his notes". We did not receive a call or a voice message. They had both my number and my husband's cell phone numbers. We would be more than willing to pay for two days had we used the truck for two days. We were both back at work on Monday. My car was also left at the location while we were using the truck and we drove it away on Sunday night. All we want is to be believed and only charged for one day. Our story could easily be verified by security cameras. Since there are other truck rental options in Ames, IA I would not recommend this one to any of my friends.

Installer left chains so they dragged on the ground, then at check in, the un-installer was ticked. Also, the un-installer left my trailer lights connector dragging on the ground, Unprofessional.
