It took almost an hour to pick up a trailer that I had reserved and checked in for. I know they are busy, but they only had 1 person checking people in. At a location that size it seemed like there should have been more people working. The workers were very friendly, there just weren't enough.

You need to make sure the gasoline gauge reads what is claimed on the paperwork. Twice in 2 wks it was not correct.

Upon making a reservation, the phone representative stated she wasn't from my city and didnt know the location closest to my address. She directed me towards a location twice as far as the one I found out about at pick up. I waited in line for 40 minutes before representative helped a line cutter before the four people who were waiting, includino myself. When I informed her of this, I asked her if I could not wait in line after inspecting my uhaul to which she answerred yes. I then waited another 25 minutes to give her the paperwork despite having a reservation. No apology was given. I was also not verbally informed to refill gas tank and was charged an additional fifty dollars for the 3 gallons I used. I will not be using Uhaul in the future for reason.

Waited 10 minutes in the truck on return no one came out to greet me. Went inside and of course the only person was dealing with irate customers. So I waited another 10 minutes and then counter lady went out to look at miles. After some issue with reading millage, the manager came and got correct millage. After some back and forth discussion about who was on break and the manager every 5 minutes saying he was going to lunch in 15 minutes I left 10 minutes later. So after 20-30 minute drop off time I just left scratching my head thinking customer service was pretty much non-existent at this site.

The rep wasn't sure if you guys rented dollies and checked with a manager. He was told it was just like a car. He proceeded to rent the two dollies to me but the process took more than 20 minutes after starting the order. I rented the dollies and asked when they needed to be brought back. He responded by stating this time tomorrow and asked if I needed more time. I said yes and he asked how much. I asked if I could being them back at 5. He said they closed at 5 so I asked if I could bring them back at 4:30. He said yes. Off I went with the dollies and the next morning I'm called by Melissa who acts and treats me like a collector would wondering why I never brought back the dollies yesterday. I explained I rented them yesterday and she told me that's what the contract says. I kept telling her that that would've only given me just about 2 hours or so. She wouldn't have it and told me I'd be charged for another day. I explained if being them back today by 4:30 as I had agreed but she wasn't having it. I demanded to speak to a manager and she assured me one doesn't work on Sundays. I called her bluff and kept pressing and she told me he was at lunch (at 10:30am) and wouldn't be back for an hour. I asked that she have him call me and even confirmed that it would be no more than an hour. She agreed but yet no one called. We returned the dollies at 4:15pm. They said they had already taken care of the mistake but certainly this mistake could've been realized by Melissa. Such crappy service and harassment, I'd never recommend anyone have to deal with that Bull$&@"&!

Riding 10 miles on a bicycle to pick up a truck in 100 degree heat to find out that no payment had been made after giving card # to call center to pay for everything and they only used it to make a reservation does not make for a good experience. This was after being assured everything was good to go and was ready to be picked up. When rental is being paid for by a third party on the other coast, this requires a second trip in the heat on a bike to get a truck that should have been ready the first time. Plus you can't talk to anyone on site because all calls are routed to call center. .Talking to someone on sight would reduce this sort of frustration. If there isn't sufficient staff to enable someone to answer the phone , hire someone. I understand a lot of people would love to have a job right now!

not friendly, drop-off took too long (over 30 minutes). No one keeping order of drop-offs, very unorganized.

I reserved a 26' truck, and they didnt have it for me! As well as told me it was booked for pick up for 3:15- which was another mistake on their part cuz I told the lady who I booked it through (over the phone) I needed it @ 7:30! ..... They sent me to another store(truxton - sharlet was extremely helpful there!) telling me they had what I needed, when I got there, nothing was available! Sharlet booked me a truck (through what she called "traffic") at the union store (which union told me they didn't have when I was originally there) -- so, when I got back to union store, I filled them in on this.... As I stood there, the guy (can't remember his name) rented that truck to another woman!!!! -- not only did I not get the 26' truck I needed, I didn't get a truck at all!!!! After all that mess (which took 2& a half hours!!!) I ended up forced to rent a trailer!!! Not even one of the box types either!!! The flat 6x12 (I believe we're the measurements) --- I will never go back to this store!! And am going to tell everyone I know the same thing!!! Union store sucks!! I recommend to go to the uhaul on truxton and ask for sharlet!

The reservations was a FAT F!! Hot summer and I reserved a 26ft and reservation cancelled my reservation and no one knows how it happened. I will NEVER reserve through service, I will go directly to location and reserve. Moving is stressful enough in 105 degrees let alone the largest company giving poor service. The actual location was very nice however due to high volume the inside of the truck was smelly

Everything went very well but the wait to check in equipment was a little bit long. I do as the sign said,"to wait by your equipment. " I wait there nearly 10-15 minutes before someone notice that I'm there. Other than that I give them a thumb up.
