The manager of the store was very knowledgable and helpful. He made my experience at UHaul Colombia very pleasant, as he went out of his way to help me with my rental needs.

When I returned the equipment the UHaul rep was on a personal call and I had to enter the store in order for him to hang up and do the return.

The reservation process should be looked at: why reserve a certain size at a certain location then the day before you pick up be told you have to drive 45 minutes out of your way to pick up at a different location??

The trailer was not there when I went to pick it up. I must say, the staff went above and beyond their capabilities, to produce the necessary equipment.

The 6x12 trailer pulled quite well and I had no issues with it. The staff at the Columbia location was great and took care of everything I needed and more.

I would have liked to pick up truck closer to my home and destination. 20 Trucks were delivered to a location less than 5 miles away 1 week in advance. Not sure why we couldn't have one delivered there and I did ask but was told they couldn't do it.

Pick-up & return were fine other than upon return of the replacement trailer, there was no acknowledgement of there having been problems with the trailer that I was issued, no attempt to offer some type of compensation, or even a "were sorry for your trouble". The trailer was obviously fairly old, had a fair amount of surface rust, many bumps and bangs. It obviously had been recently serviced with new brake lines,and tongue jack. However once towing it, the brakes showed evidence of heating up, particularly the left rear. When I was within a few miles of where I was going to pick up a car, smoke could be seen coming off the left rear wheel and there was very noticeable drag (feeling like brakes on).

No trucks in my location of Norwich, CT and Waterford, CT so had to pay an extra $90 in mileage and $60 in gas for this location. My truck was not there at the time that I had. Jordan got me a truck but ruined 2 days of moving due to not getting the truck later and having to drive so far for it.

The truck I had reserved was not available to me at the time of pick up. The previous person wanted to extend there time. The only thing they had was a van which was not large enough and required me to then double my trips and expense. It seems like U-Haul should have paid for one day since they did not have the truck I booked and they got extra from the person who kept it.

A printed rate card showing the rental alternatives would be clearer and more definitive for the customer

To whom it may concern, I am appalled with the unprofessionalism displayed by your local office and cooperate office. I rented a twenty six foot (26) truck through the Columbia Connecticut office for three(3) days. Pick up on Monday August 25, 2014 for three days. I visited the local office yesterday, Saturday August 23, 2014 to purchase more moving boxes and confirm the truck rental. I was assured by the clerk I was all set. Today at approximately 4:50 p.m. I received a voice message there was a problem with the truck. The local store indicated cooperate office made a mistake by renting the truck I reserved. The cooperate office indicated the mistake was made by the local office. I spoke with a woman from the Cooperate office and she had no solution other than having me drive in the morning approximately fifty(50) miles away( Hartford) while I pay my movers to sit and wait for me. I was also told I would not be compensated for mileage or my inconvenience. I was also told I would have to return the truck the following day, returning back another fifty(50) miles away. I was then forced to rent a seventeen(17) foot truck at the Columbia office. I have to move an entire house with a seventeen foot truck. I was going to empty my house and leave the furniture stored inside the truck for the following day. It was necessary to store all my furniture overnight, as I am not closing on my new house until Tuesday August 26, 2014. I am now forced to fine another solution to store the reminder of our belongings. I will never use U haul ever again. I will also be filing a complaint with the better business bureau and whomever else I can file a complain with. Timothy T Coleman August 24, 2014

The gentleman that processed my reservation (checkout and checking) at this location was very helpful and polite. The store itself was clean and seemed well stocked. However U-Haul overall was not accommodating. I tried to get my rental through a location near to my home but was told i could only get a trailer from the Columbia location. Why U-Haul could not manage to get me a trailer in the Ellington, Manchester, Vernon or South Windsor locations is beyond me. Poor customer service if you ask me. Trailer had only two tie down locations making it difficult to secure my cargo. There were strips along the side of the walls but one end was coming loose and they did not seem very secure to use as tie-down points.

I found that the customer service was what you find just about anywhere these days. Employees who have just shown up to work to collect a pay check. There is no pride in doing a good job or respect for the customer. The employees were having inappropriate personal conversation and had there cell phones out where they could be seen. I had an issue with the gas gauge which should have been caught before I left the lot but the employee who gave me the keys was more concerned about leaving then thoroughly reviewing what we needed to before leaving the lot. While the truck was in good shape.... the employees need to be more professional. I will say I spoke with one person who was polite and helpfull over the phone at least

Jim was very professional and helpful. All other assistances were very informative about using equipment properly and in giving directions. There were no major issues for the entire ride. The only thing that was a slight concern was the gas engine light was on from the start of our ride from Columbia, CT to Vermillion, SD. I would only kindly suggest to make sure all vehicles are maintained and up to date consistently. Thank you again for all your help and considerations in making our trip safe. Take Care.
