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.

We rented a trailer at 7pm Friday night for 24hrs. By 5pm Saturday we knew returning the trailer that night wasn't going to be possible. So we called the 1-800#and was on hold for 27minutes when we hung up. Sunday morning we called back an updated a very unpleasant man on why we didn't bring it back the night before. We also pointed out the rental agreement was for 24hrs yet the location closed at 5pm. The man continued to be ill mannered. We continued to run errands and lost track of time. Again we call uhaul and the unpleasant man stated if we drop the trailer off after hours we are liable if it's stolen. So we did not drop it off Sunday. Monday I received a voice message from uhaul stating they called the trailer in stolen. My husband left work early Monday to ensure it was returned in the condition we picked it up as. Stolen? Really?

The guy who worked the MLK morning shift was unfriendly and his customer service experience needs attention. I came in to pick the truck, signed what I needed to sign, gave my credit card number, and then all I needed was to drive away. The guy attendant left me at the counter without saying a word. He left me wondering what's next?? He was gone for about 5-8minutes. I noticed him when he turned back with the truck. He said "there's the truck". No "thank you" no "next steps" no "please wait while i prepare your truck"...nothing!!! I know it doesn't take much skill to do what he does, but Customer Sevice is key to a business success. Clearly, you're still in business but it's also clear that my experience will not take me to your location again! Please relay this feedback to the guy working the MLK morning shift. Thank you.

I picked up the truck and it was dirty and full of dirt and rocks. I had to clean the truck. Also, the night light inside the trailer did not work and we had to load many items in the dark. Last time I rented a truck from Budget it was very clean and they had a light that came on when you opened the trailer door. Also a 16' Budget truck was larger inside than your 17' U Haul truck.

Office staff was not very friendly when checked in and inside of building was very cluttered, hard to even see the people sitting at desks.

This location was not very friendly. Try to be more helpful to customers and make them feel like you want their business.
