Bucket hole in door of store, got truck, walked to it and it wouldn't start. Went back in to wait in line 15 mins to be told no truck. I asked about the matching truck next to the one that didn't start. The lady said it doesn't work. I asked if another store could help and she told me to call 800 number. I pleaded with her to try other truck... Finally she said yes and it started. She rented it to me and I left an hour late. Truck was dirty but worked. Will never use uhaul again.

The staff was friendly and courteous, the truck was clean and ready to go - but I reserved a 17 foot truck a week before my move and got a 15 today. I went to pick it up this morning and they told me I was in the system for a 15 footer. I showed my receipt and it said 17. Apparently the 17 was out of service, so they put me in for a 15 on their end and didn't let me know. Had they upped me to a 20, that would have been fine but those were all unavailable when I asked for one today. That meant I had to enlist a friend with a pickup for the additional things we couldn't fit to meet my time line and do a single trip. The 17 would have been perfect! Wish I'd gotten a call, I would have gone to another location had I known there was an issue. Once I got there it was too late to correct.

Katie was very helpful from the phone call I made to inquire about a rental to the return.

Truck ran POORLY. If you don't mind the feeling that your kidneys are being knocked around for hours nor the lack of use of the mirrors it was ok I guess, for the vehicle shook so much you could NOT use them effectively. Be prepared for motion sickness for this was a ride that makes a cruise ship on a rough water seem like a gem The hesitation of the vehicle even on straight road was unappreciated physically.

We were extremely frustrated, we had a confirmed reservation to find out 2 days before our pick up that the reservation length was reduced. This completed inconvenienced us causing us to completely rearrange our moving arrangements. This is unacceptable, it is already stressful enough to move but then add in the poor organization of uhaul it is simply unheard of. Get your act together.

This location was excellent. Catherine Stevens stayed late helping us get the trailer we had rented. She saved our day as we had earlier been let down by two other locations that day. The first one said they had the trailer we needed, but they did not. The second one said they had the trailer, but they were not going to stay open for us to come pick up, regardless of the fact that it was Uhaul's fault that we were able to reserve a trailer that was not available. Great job Columbia for doing the other store's jobs for them!!!

I reserved a 17 foot truck and it was not there. The only other option i was given was a 15 foot truck and they said I could rent a trailer if i wanted. I wasnt offered any discount for the the truck i reserved a week in advance. The smaller truck caused me to make an additional trip using more miles. I was not satisfied with the service of u haul.

Girl at the desk was rapid fast which I appreciated 'cause I was in a rush. You should tell her she did a great job and it was noticed.

Went to the Columbia location store the night before to see if it was okay to pay in cash and the lady said absolutely. She said we could put a 100 dollars down and all would be set. The morning of my dad went and the guy that was there said no cash down that he had to pay with a debit or credit card. My dad had to leave the store to come get me from home to go help him out with the miscommunication. when we both went to the store 10 minutes later the guy said oh yes we take cash too. Very upsetting and set us behind schedule. I also spoke to a representative the night before who said she gave me the best price guarantee of $79 and change with 100 miles but that wasn't the case either. They gave me another price! When we returned the van the guy even asked for $50 more saying we had drove 100 miles more then we did and only after I asked him twice to double check he found a mistake the store made by giving us the wrong van with the wrong mileage. Overall it was a bad experience. I called and went the night before just so my dad wouldn't have any problems as his first language is Italian and speaks little English. The manager was nice to use but the guy that was there that morning was very rude and disrespect to my father and I don't recommend anyone to rent anything from the Columbia store.

I'll state what happened and then you can determine how service can best be improved. I arrived for my trailer pickup and the clerk at the counter verified my information at the computer and assigned me a trailer. When it came time to pay and I had gone through the whole payment process, she informed me that her computer "had frozen" and we would have to do the whole process over again. This took precious time, but I did it. She completed this process, assigned me a trailer, and then found that the assigned trailer had been used for hauling brush on the property and, since the computer would ONLY let me have that computer-assigned trailer, I would have to wait (MORE) while the trailer was dumped of its brush load, swept out, and then attached to my vehicle (another wasted 20" minutes!). Once the young man, very pleasant, by the way - Ian, I believe - had hooked up the cleaned-out trailer, he had me check the lights and it was found that a rear light on the trailer was malfunctioning. A managerial-type had to be brought to look at the trailer and, upon seeing the light problem, he told Ian to simply give me another trailer of the same size that was on hand. (Suddenly, apparently, the computer-assigned number became irrelevant??) Ian made the trailer switch efficiently and quickly, apologized for the malfunction and my delay 2 - 3 times, and I was on my way after being at the location for approximately 1.25 hrs.!!!!! Other than that, the clerks were pleasant, the location seemed to have a good choice of trailers and had loads of indoor merchandise available for purchase. What do you think needs to be done to improve service?

The customer service person when I called to request a reservation promised a specific pick up location which was later changes. I asked for moving blankets which were not available.

The gas gauge read 7/8 when we picked up the truck. We traveled 15 miles and the gas gauge was on 1/2. We were charged for the gas. Some thing is not right.
