Three employees working at the counter, and one client waiting [me]. As they finished each walked away! My friend and I waited at least 5 minutes before anyone waited on us. The next day, when the item was returned the service was fine.

When I showed up, the computer system was down, so they couldn't run my card. I had to elave to get cash at a gas station, pay the ATM fee, and then I was told I had to give the guy $100 for the deposit. It also took about 1 hour to make this simple transaction. When i returned the truck, the guy had to record of my trasaction or the fact that I had givent hem $100, most of which I was supposed to get back. They never fully refunded my purchase. I will never use Uhaul again, this was easily the worst experience with a moving/truck rental company I've ever had. Uhaul has always seemded disorganized, but this was really, really, REALLY BAD!!!! You won't be stealing money from me again anytime soon....

Seemed like the only place in des Moines metro with 26' trucks. Would have been great to have rented locally at Urbandale location.

When we got the truck there was only 1/4 tank of gas, they said there was 1/2 a tank. I opened the back and there were beer cans all over, and it wasn't cleaned. I called the store and they said they gave me someone else's truck. I tried to pay cash in the end and at first they wouldn't except the cash????!!! They had to get another guy over there to tell him it was okay. Every time I did try to call there was no answer. Just not pleased.

This was the best experience I've had renting a moving truck from anywhere. I will definitely use U-Haul again if I ever have to move again.

Very busy holiday weekend with only one staff member working desk which resulted in a lot of disgruntled customers waiting in line. He was polite and took time with me as I was returning vehicle and had gone over mileage allowance. This is a very busy location and parking is congested with returned trucks lined up, etc.

This was a busy Labor Day weekend for moving outlets. The cab of the truck was a bit messy. Console littered with cigarette ashes and sticky candies, but overall given the high volume of customers it was well kept. Thank you U-Haul.

I went to this location first and they said they didn't have any trucks available. I call the 1-800 number and they send me back to this location. The man called me and was rude after I said I was just there and you told me you were out. He informed me that you guys made him but I would have to return the truck at 7am. I paid full price to have a truck from 630 pm to 7am. The guy took me to the truck and handed me the keys. He did not tour with me and inventory the trucks condition. He handed me the keys and said 7am. I have been a customer with you guys for many years and this was my worst experience ever. I will be going so somewhere else in the future. Customer service is very important to me.

Staff was very help and was able to get me a bigger storage unit right away. The storage area could use some work. There was a lot of trash and old bed lying around and in the way to get to the storage units

Due to timing, I was left with no choice but to drop my vehicle off after hours. Their sign said to leave a padlock on the truck to ensure the dollies, etc weren't stolen. However, I had no padlock to just leave behind (and one was not provided). I took my chances and left the vehicle expecting that I would receive a lot of strife about not locking up the vehicle (as by this time I had already had a LOT of issues regarding Uhaul and my move); however I received an email early the next morning saying my truck was checked in and everything was fine. This was surprising considering the mirror was also broken (luckily I had the insurance). I will give Uhaul in general one more chance to redeem themself (after not having my GUARANTEED truck available for a move across country) and I will pick up/drop off from this location as I had no issues.

Wait time was more than 15 minutes when checking the truck out. Could use more help at the rental counter. The truck was old, started hard, and the A/C didn't work. The fleet could be maintained better and replaced more often.

Reduce rates, possibly do rates by hourly rather than mileage

Have some actual customer service...both pick-up and drop off the two gentleman that were manning the counter acted as they did not want to be there --- I shouldn't be the first to say "hi" and "thank you" in that type of setting. I am also waiting on my credit, which I have yet to see in 4 days since the return.

Service was superb. All staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. This includes telephone conversations with staff as well. I would highly recommend U-Haul. Thank you for making our move run smoothly.

If you're going to make a customer sign the form saying they agree that the fuel gauge in the truck is at a certain level, you should give them the opportunity to examine the gauge in the truck for themselves. Beyond that, everything was fine.

the process started off slowly as there was only 1 person working and several in front of me. I understand that one or two people failed to show up for work so is understandable. The person working did call a couple of people in and then things proceeded MUCH quicker.
