Very nice and customer friendly

The van wasn't ready even though I pre reserved it. The windshield was very dirty. The warning message for a tire service was needed, so then I had to wait longer for the tire pressure to be checked. This message stayed on and I couldn't see the mileage numbers. The rest of the inside of the van was clean. The man who helped me was very nice.

Staff was friendly however, didn't seem to know much nor able to attend to each customer meaning would skip around. Would do a little for me, then go to next, then back to me... Should finish with one customer before going to next... very unprofessional. Also the uhaul trailor was old and not in good repair.

they gave me the wrong size of trailer and after I loaded my pickup witch didn't fit like they said it would, I could not drive over 35 miles an hour or the trailer would fishtail. I had to stop at least 4 times to put the finder back on cause it wasn't bolted down properly. because of the speed it took me over four hours to go almost a hundred mile instead of the 2 hour it should have taken.

I was very disappointed when I arrived and was informed that the 17' truck I reserved weeks in advanced was not available. The only option a available was a cargo van or pickup truck. In the end the gentleman that helped me got me squared away with something that would help. He was very nice and helpful. Just disappointed with not having the truck.

The drive in/out lot sucks. Very unorganized. My car was blocked in from 3 sides. Had to wait 15 minutes to get out of the lot. Also the advertised price is deceiving. $29.99 turned into $86.00 plus $15 for gas and only drove 39 miles. Not using again.

When departing from U-Haul location the employee stated to me bring it back with the same amount of Gas which I did. When returning the truck another employee said that the gas hand had move which I had just left Q-Trip putting $4.00 to get the gas hand back to what it was when departure anyway I paid the $91.00 bill which I only drove 21 miles I will not be doing Business with this company ever again also I'm advising all of my friends and family and who ever I talk to asking them to not do Business with U-Haul. No one needs to be shafted like that is so petty.

We had a 26' Uhaul over nightand we went to start it the next day and it wouldn't start. So we called them and they told us we had to call roadside service and that we had probably left a light on or something. NO we did not leave a light on or anything. So then when taking it back we felt like we needed to be reimbursed for The inconvenience of because we had to be out by a certain time. It delayed us 1 1/2 hours. They would not give us anything off of our bill not even for the gas they said they couldn't. Plus they are unprofessional!! That's bullshit! And we will never use U-Haul again!

You could not charge me an extra day when I had to stand around waiting in your store a half hour to turn it in. You could not rent out an Arizona vehicle in Iowa with a snowstorm on the way. I had no traction and nothing to clean the windshield. You could also not charge me like I was lead to believe for a dolly I couldn't use and called to tell you that. I have two more moves ahead of me, and if this mistreatment stands, I won't rent from you again.

It was a VERY POSITIVE experience and I appreciated the fact that I was able to get My Reservation changed at short notice and be able to Move before bad Weather set in!

Remove SLC movers from the Moving Helpers website. I had missing and damaged items. SLC's owner called my children names and is unwilling to resolve what they damaged.

Nothing for the next customer. But for longtime existing customer's, Discounts and such would be nice.

I had rented a van for moving and had paid for a dolly. Not only was the van full of boxes (that I didn't order), but they forgot the dolly. I ended up driving back to the location to have them correct it, which they happily did. They were very busy, and I wasn't really upset by it. I would recommend checking the rental for any equipment before leaving the lot, though. The staff was friendly and helpful, and everything else went very smooth. I'd use the location again if needed.

Be sure to be accurate when answering questions. I was told I could make a payment over the phone and then was told when I called back that I couldn't. It caused a major inconvenience.

The truck I rented was a piece of crap. The front rotors were warped so bad that when you stepped on the brakes the steering wheel almost shook out of my hands. The "green gauge", the vacuum gauge did not work. When I told the guy about the truck he looked at me like was crazy! I rate this place a 2 out of 10. With equipment and sevice like this I don't know how they stay in business.

When I went to this location to get my U-Haul I was told that a 10 foot truck would carry a 1 bedroom apartment.All we had to move was a 1 bedroom and living room.No kitchen and I couldn't get all of my sons stuff in it so now I will have to put 2 small cabinets a small type end table and chair in my truck and drive it 300 miles to his new home,and we took our time and packed that truck to it's max.Also I was instructed that the truck was on 3/8 of a tank of gas and when ht returned it it needed to be at that position.It's not easy trying to guess how much gas to add along the way so that when you are done you don't leave one half a tank of gas in the truck that you can't get back out.What happened to it's full when you get it and it's full when you drop it off.

It took way tooooo long to turn the van in. We got the van in 10 minutes but had to wait 20 minutes before we were waited on. There were only 2 people working. When we left, the line was out the door.
