The lady (only person working at the time) was very nice and accommodating. I called ahead letting her know we were dropping off the truck and might not make it before close, she told us to take our time and not rush and explained the 24 hour drop off procedure. We got there 5 minutes before close and she took care of us. She was very nice and patient. Great customer service!!!

By far the best ran and personable u-haul store I have ever utilized! You can tell great service is an expectation from whomever the manager is.

Quoted over the phone a 29.99 rental rate. Found out when I got there (from 2 1/2 hrs away) that insurance was not included (+$8) and I also had to purchase a plug adapter (everywhere else I've rented from lets you borrow them) for another $14. I could've borrowed a similar trailer and pulled it the 125 miles to suit my needs for an additional $30 gas money. Thought it would be wiser just to rent one for the same money once I got to Ames. Would have appreciated it if the additional nickel and diming would have been explained over the phone. I also found out Uhaul Ames doesn't loan out ball hitches either but thankfully I had one and was not forced to buy one of those. It turned out it was nearly double the cost renting from Uhaul than borrowing a trailer and spending extra in gas money. Oh well...

The employees were friendly and explained everything step by step, which was a relief as I had never moved by myself before. I will be using this place again in any future moving or hauling.

For a company as large as U-Haul, I would expect that they would eventually have a 6' x 12' open trailer in Mason City, Iowa! I had to drive 3-hours (1.5 hours each way) to return the trailer. Who on earth do I need to contact to get a 6' x 12' open trailer (no ramp on back please), in Mason City or Clear Lake, Iowa? If Leonard Shoen (started U-Haul in 1945), were still alive, I bet, he would put a trailer in north central Iowa (Mason City or Clear Lake).

Cruise control would make the trip more enjoyable. Also a trailer jack would be nice so a guy can disconnect trailer to load the truck. The trailer tongue is to short to jack knife the trailer to load an unload. The tongue weight is over 150 pounds to unhook the trailer by hand. Take a 100 pound woman out an try it. Not possible.

That gal that was working the front desk was very helpful and friendly. We had an excellent experience.

Extremely rude and dismissive manager. He had an attitude when asked basic questions and delivered little to no customer service. No reason for him to be manager when he cannot lead a team of individuals whose job it is to provide customer service. Unfortunately, this individual made a bad first impression for UHaul that will cause me to think twice before using that location again. He lost the company business and should be retrained or disciplined for his lack of basic customer service and people skills.

A dozen pads were ordered, but not in the back of truck when we got to moving sight. Called right away and told gal who answered., but when I returned truck the person on duty knew nothing about it. He checked with someone else working, and I was under the impression it would be taken off my bill. Just noticed when checking my receipt that I was still charged for them.

The guy working seem to have his hands full balancing rentals and returns. Maybe having two staff on high traffic days like Fridays and Saturdays would be beneficial.

Great service, but your advertised 20$ rental is deceptive, I paid almost 3X to have it for 4 hrs and 50 miles
