The exprience of Frank's Marathon was very pleasant. The station attendant was very knowledgeable and business casual. The only recommendation I would give to improve my experience would be to change the wipers on my Uhaul.

A very busy location with lots of cars waiting to be serviced - kind of junky looking. Unable to tell it was even a UHaul location since all the equipment was in the back in a muddy lot. The attendant was very friendly and helpful. Other than appearance it was OK.

Frank and his crew, are the greatest. Frank's Marathon has the most honest mechanics, too.

The person on duty on Sunday was very thorough in his explanations of the charges and the terms covering the rental. I thought that he did an excellent job. The parking lot behind the gas station could use some work, though, as it probably turns into a muddy mess when it rains.

This place has the best employees around. UHaul told me wrong information, and at 700pm when all other locations were closed Franks came to the rescue. I could not have made the move with my daughter, if it had not been for the willingness of this location to help me.I had been on the phone almost 45 minutes with the 800 center.....they did NOTHING to help me.

make sure the next customer knows if they are from out of town they need to supply two (2) credit cards.. good thing we had two, as we did not know this.... and your site needs to be updated. lots of u-haul sites are on your map and they are closed...

I inadvertently ordered the wrong size truck and U-Haul wouldn't work me to help me get the size I needed;you wanted to charge me again and make me wait for my credit, essentially making me pay twice. I will NEVER use UHaul again nor would I recommend it. If I EVER have to rent a truck of any kind I will go to ANYONE ELSE. I had to be on the East Coast by Tuesday nite and now have to spend 3X my budget to be there on time. YOU SUCK!!

This was supposed to be a 24 hour drop off location. We had paid $60 extra for drop off in Columbus vs. Cincinnati. Since this was supposed to be a 24 hour drop off location, we brought the vehicle to the reserved location after driving many miles out of our way trying to find it and having to call the UHaul 800 service to get confirmation about the location. GPS was not working in the area. The UHaul location is in the back of a service station and it closes at 9:00 p.m.. There is no signage, no drop box on the premises and the 800 service operators unfortunately do not appear to be aware of this. I spoke to three during the course of this one hour fiasco. We stayed on site at the service station with the 800 service for UHaul with one operator who told me I had to stay in Columbus overnight if I could not find someplace in the service station to get the key under a door even though we had already PAID for the drop off in Columbus. The back of the station where vehicles were to be parked is dark, the station was deserted and we were told our only option was not to leave the truck that night but to stay in Columbus overnight and bring the truck to the station in the morning. When I explained we HAD to leave and we were driving our own vehicle back home which was 90 plus minutes away, the agent continued to state that I could not leave the truck at the station and staying overnight was our only option. I asked if we could slide the key into the locked propane gas cage beside the station and could they please leave a note on the contract about the location of the key. The agent then placed us on hold and did not come back to the line. We FINALLY found a small opening in the garage door of the service station mechanic's bay. We pushed the key through the door and called the UHaul 800 number again to speak to a manager. This was the worst experience I have ever had with UHaul. Truly disappointing and unprofessional. Excuses were given that the 800 service does not know the drop off location procedures of the 24 hour locations. This was expensive, stressful and unreliable to drop off in another location.

Would not recommend u-haul trailers EVER have used the trucks with good results but will NEVER rent from "authorized deal/gas station" again...reserved trailer a week in advance, get a call 1 1/2 days before from dealer saying "oops, we wont have it now how about another day", really!?finally get them to locate one as agreed and show up to find electrical harness is old school does not hook up to late model vehicles, need adapter, that they are of course are out of (yep 8 am Sunday morning) he then stands there like "oh well" finally sends us to auto parts store to buy one at our expense and of course...not open until 10am!!! Why did we bother planning this for morning if nobody can get anything done until noon! We are now headed to another location 12 miles in the wrong direction to pick up another trailer...would have been nice if Frank's would have gotten on the phone to help the customer out but instead my husband and I schlepped around to closed stores, called u-haul stores and an hour and a half later...have another trailer reserved. Thanks U-haul. More like U-pay waste your time and work hard (in an already stressful situation-moving) and you might get on the road today...

gas station was busy and took awhile to check out. also this wasn't the location I indicated when I reserved the truck. inconvenient for me plus I had to wait until later to get it. I couldn't pick it up right away in the morning. I understand that and appreciate them wanting to put me into a truck that had lower mileage since I was going one-way and a long distance. but still. also thought the price of a one-way is rediculously high.
