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.

This was a need for UHaul that came up at the last minute. We were pleased to be able to pickup and return the truck on a Sunday afternoon.

So everything was great, but I'd appreciate it more if you had the van smelling better. It smelled of rotten meat/eggs. Thanks

Manager very accommodating. Also staff greeted anyone who came in the door whether busy or not and said "Good morning/afternoon. I'll be with you in a moment." Staff friendly and helpful in finding items needed as well as making reservations by phone. Overall, more than pleased!!

Though a trainee was at counter, very courteous and reasonably prompt. But, you really need a pager/buzzer. Twice I have visited that location and yelled to find anyone.

The fellow who un-hitched my trailer, Devon, seemed a little green and could use some customer service training, in welcoming. greeting customers. Otherwise nice, prompt, friendly organization.

One guy working on Sat isn't fair to him or the customers waiting in line for quite some time. He was very helpful & friendly. Great employee to have!

My apologies, I cannot comment. I was busy and a friend had to drop off the trailer. He didn't not make me awake of any problems and my contract was sent via email right away, so I'm assuming all went well.

The young man that helped me was very good, but he was also very busy! He could have used some help. He was excellent though, and I got great service.

I found the online reservation really easy but useless since at the end of the process (and only then) the system tells you that the reservation is not firm but subject to availability of the local uhaul store. So I had to call the local store to confirm availability. A total waste of my time. On a positive note, both employees at the local store went out of their way to provide excellent customer service: Zac and another person I cannot remember his name
