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.

Wait tines are generally pretty long. They need more staff on hand to do all the work

The people were wonderful, and tried to be helpful. There were no storage units available to suit my needs, and I was quite disappointed. They were kind enough to try to help me somewhere with the facilities I needed. Everyone was helpful and friendly. I wish the lot could be bigger. I had difficulty trying to enter. Once I stopped the truck, someone was right there to check the equipment, and get me on my way.

Storage area is upstairs but there is no elevator or anything like that. I'm glad I didn't have anything really heavy. Also getting in and out is really hard seeing you have to swipe every single time to get in. Other than that everything was ok.

Everything was fine, but I was disturbed by how much my truck smelled like cigarette smoke. Yuck. It would be awesome if your trucks came with a way to hook up MP3 players and/or smart phones.

The guy we dealt with was so rude I considered leaving and going to rent a Penske truck(sp)... He rolled his eyes when we told him we needed a 24ft truck, he threw the keys on the counter, he took of his glasses and made faces so we knew he didn't want to help us but he had to. I have worked in similar positions and that is NOT how you treat customers. I was having a terrible day the reason I needed the truck was I had to move all of my belongings in storage ande and my children are living in a shelter, still after all of the stuff going on in my life, I was very nice to him it was hard because I really wanted to tell him how customers should be treated.

Great service, I like the internet way of putting it all together so we have it in hand and know what to expect. The panel truck was a godsend! Thanks for being on the SW side of Des Moines. I've purchased lots of bubble wrap and tape from the store!
