The truck leaked oil or grease onto my brand new driveway. The truck also had been in a previous accident. The door therefore would not shut properly.

I'm a repeat customer and have to fill out the same crap every time. There has to be a way to streamline the check out process. The young woman is a real bitch, she can use some customer relation training.

Where do I begin. I received the oldest truck on the lot. Drove 10 miles an hour (not lying). First day worked nice. Second day it broke down fully loaded about 11:00 am then finally got towed about 2:30 pm. Was rudely spoken to at the store and the employees there was not professional at all. Manager never called me back after I called twice to speak to them. Was told I wasn't going to get a refund since it wasn't their problem. I will NEVER recommend U-Haul to anybody that needs moving assistance.

Staff was courteous and efficient, everything with the reservation was correct, the truck served our needs perfectly and the return was seemless. The technology and staff in place really made the experience efficient. I would highly recommend the Southeast Des Moines Uhaul store.

I was told by customer service that I would not have to pay for my storage unit for first month as they was doing first free month then when I got there they was rude made me pay said cs was stupid didn't know their job. I tried to get it cleared up and everyone was rude and it never got cleared up I was ignored all the way to the top of cs and the store itself. I would not recommend you to anyone nor would I use you again and will move my things out as soon as I possibly can get the help and the truck to do so.

My poor experience with Uhaul had nothing to do with this store. My experience has everything to do with the reservation process. I requested to reserve a truck at a location that is 9 miles from where I live/moved. At no point during the transaction was there any indication that my desired pickup location didn't have the size of truck I requested. I would have NEVER agreed to transaction if I'd have been notified of this upfront. Then I got a call from the store confirming my reservation and still there was no mention of the location. The only reason I discovered I would have to pick up this truck 45 minutes from where I live is because I looked at the confirmation email (which I received after the confirmation phone call had already occurred and it would have been too late for me to cancel without a fee) to remind myself what time I could pick up the truck. I asked the clerk at the store if I could drop it off at another location and he kind of mumbled and told me no, I'd have to take it back to the same location where I picked it up. No other options. Since he'd mentioned that he's new during our transaction, I decided to call Uhaul when I got home and asked if I could drop it off at a location nearer to my home. I was told if I did that, I'd have to pay DOUBLE the price for the rental. Why would that be? The point of renting a Uhaul is for convenience. There was nothing about this experience that was convenient. Instead, I was forced to pay for 70 miles of travel that had absolutely nothing to do with my move. We moved to a house less than a mile from the house we were previously living in. To have to drive 45 minutes to pick up a truck and then another 45 minutes to drop it off, is ridiculous!

Get more help, I waited in line for approx. 15-20 minutes. Your add claims that you get a $50 refund if the rental truck you need is not there, well it wasn't at the location on Douglas ave. like your representative at your call center told my wife and I it would be. The gentleman there told me he would find the truck I need and call me but it never happened, we had to find the next size smaller truck on our own which was at your 14th. St. Location. So in turn that made me have to pay for more miliage to get my move done. I believe the whole $50 refund that you advertise is false advertising and it needs to be brought to someone's attention. Therefore I don't believe my wife and I will be using u-haul for our moving needs again. Very disappointed !!

While the truck was clean, it was well used. The sun visor was broken on the driver's side. The employees were polite and helpful, but the truck could use some maintenance.

I rented a trailer on 08/30/15. I got there right at 9AM and everything seemed to be good and the people were helpful. Justin was the person that helped us. He made the transaction easy. When going through to pay for my trailer Justin asked me if we needed extra insurance on the trailer. I responded know at that time and signed for my paperwork and my receipt for the charge said $31.95 with tax etc. I returned the trailer about an hour early and everything was great. Justin checked me back in and helped me unhook. He sent me inside to get my printed off receipt. When I went in and got my receipt it had an additional $8.00 charge on there for Insurance. I let him know that I didn't get insurance and he played stupid and said you sure. I looked at my original paperwork and charge I signed for and of course NO INSURANCE was charged at that time and it shows where I did NOT ACCEPT INSURANCE. Justin played stupid again and said oh I'm not sure how to refund you for the $8.00 charge. WOW he knew how to run my card for a charge but could not refund the charge he charged me without my permission. I feel it is not so much the $8.00 that they charged but the fact that they did it knowing it wasn't correct. I wonder how many people if not everyone according to the reviews they do this to? I WILL EXPECT TO GET THIS CHARGED CREDITED BACK TO MY ACCOUNT. I feel UHAUL needs to look at the people they hire much better before hiring them. I WILL NOT REFER ANYONE to this location. I hope to hear from UHAUL with an apology at least. Thank you Scott T
