When I picked up the truck it was parked on an incline so the gas gage read a bit higher than actual but no big deal.

At first they did not want to accept the return because they were overstocked. I had been up since 4:30 am and was in no mood to go to another location so they did accept it.

My trailer was not available. No uhaul in Birmingham had my trailer despite me having a reservation number. I had to use a different and less desirable vehicle.

Everything went perfectly when we picked up the truck. The headache we went through before hand with UHAUL was a nightmare. Without knowing, they changed our pickup time to after 3pm, when we scheduled to pick up a truck by 8am, since we had movers coming at 9:30am. After 8-10 phone calls with customer service the day before, we were still unsure and anxious to see if we would even have a truck. The pickup location was great. The woman helping us was absolutely wonderful and so pleasant.

Worst national customer service. Problem with reservation. Promised $50 refund on charges on new reservation. Five people through Customer Service couldn't help. You need to take down that guarantee if it's this much trouble to get it honored. Finally, some random guy answered the phone and promised that it would be processed. We'll see. Never rent from U-Haul again after twenty years of moving my family all around.

The attempt by the online reservation department to change locations and delay my pick up time by almost 12 hours without checking with me was absurd. Furthermore, there were trailers available in the area, but I had to direct the person at your customer service department to search for trailers available elsewhere (which there were) so that I would be able move during my schedule time.

I first went to Fairway Auto Mart in Alabaster to pick where my reservation was. They were HORIBLE!!! Pathetic service, did not have the trailer and didn't give a ___ about it. I highly recommend you remove them from your UHaul network because they are a poor reflection on UHaul. I then went to the Valley Ave. location and it was the opposite. Great service and I will use this location in the future. I had decided to never use UHaul again but the couple at the Valley location changed my mind.

The staff lied about the rental truck being out of gas just to over charge me. When I called to dispute the charge, the representative refused to allow me to say anything and overtalked every time I tried to ask a question showing her poor customer service. I will never use their services again.

The owners of this facility were friendly and helpful, answering all of my questions. I would use this facility again, without question.

Place was closing at 5 pm. We got there a couple of minutes before 5. Representative said they were closed and would not open the gate into the lot. Had to spend about 20 minutes trying to fit trailer into another small lot on side of hill so we could drop it off somewhere at UHaul. Person was NOT helpful.

Had a reservation for a different pick up location- had to drive way out if my way to get my trailer, and what really burned my ass was i had to return it to that out of the way location, instead of the one i reserved it at

It wasn't the location's fault - the truck we were supposed to get was dropped off at a different location - so we ended up waiting 1 hour before they were able to find us another truck at a different location - that was frustrating because I reserved the truck more than a week in advanced and checked in online as well. The lady that we dropped the truck off to was great - she made it very easy.

I requested a truck online at westgate on oxmoor, and it was available in the parking lot, but when we went to pick it up, the employee said the computer system would not let him rent the truck to us for some unknown reason, and he made us drive to the valley ave location to pick it up.

Very honest. The young lady found my credit card and immediately called and informed me she had it. I was able to pick it up an hour later. A big thank you to her.

The location is hard to get to and the instructions are not clear as to where to leave the trucks after hours.

When I walked into the office, the girl behind the counter did not acknowledge me. After a couple minutes I said hello. The girl said, "She will be back in a minute." After another couple minutes, the girl left (without saying anything) and I was alone in the office. After I had been there for over 15 minutes, a lady came in and helped us. There were no problems with anything except having to wait (seemingly unnecessarily). Very unprofessional all around (which doesn't bother me too much) but they got the job done.

Communication is key. Experience was attributed to the person who booked the trailer and the front desk who did not explain that the truck I ordered was late. While I appreciate them trying to make other unrealistic accommodations, at no point did they call to say the truck had been returned and we could pick it up. I was running around for 3 hours trying to find another u-haul truck. U-Haul call center sent us on a wild goose chase for 3 hours trying to find another center when the easy fix was them calling to find another truck or them calling us when the truck was returned. Better training for situations like this would be useful.

Upon return and final girl very confused and as a result made disputed charges on my VISA.
