At the Urbandale location we waited 10-15 minutes for someone to come into the building and help us. Having come from Lincoln, NE we were wanting to get the truck and go. The truck was better than I expected. My call to UHaul on 4/9 was handled well and I appreciated the extra 20 miles.

No comments - everything was just great. All of my info was there when I arrived and we were able to get going quickly. I had a couple questions, and the gentleman who helped me covered everything very efficiently. Thanks.

The gentlemen who checked me in was very nice and helpful. I was surprised to see one of the other individuals behind the counter with a half smoked cigarette in his mouth it was extinguished, but highly unprofessional.

I've used this location twice. Each time there's a line out the door and only 2 people working. They were friendly when helping you, but it shouldn't take 30 minutes to get a truck, especially when you've already done the work online. When I returned the truck, someone (presumably the manager) was chatting with her employee about his funeral leave. They had a lengthy conversation while I stood there waiting to drop off my key and settle up. In my opinion, this was very unprofessional to have a personal conversation in front of a customer and to keep that customer waiting while discussing something unrelated to the task at hand.

Very friendly and helpful staff! We had the same guy at pickup and drop off and he was excellent!

When reserving my Uhaul truck online. I requested to pick up at the Urbandale location and drop off at a different Des Moines location. My order went through and I was not notified until I brought up dropping the truck off at a different location. If it is not an option to pick up at one location and drop off at another, I would recommend that you remove that option from online. It was frustrating that I had to pay for the additional miles to bring the truck up to Urbandale instead of the one near my home.

Only one person behind the counter for a very busy Saturday morning. That was rather disappointing.

There seemed to be a lack of help, or at least lack of counter people on this day. However, the person that helped me was extraordinary, and willing to help with all of my concerns and needs. Bravo to him.

Have more than 1 person working so customers are not waiting for 45 min to be helped when other customers have issues.

They went over and above to get a 1 way trailer for me to pickup.

My experience was very good, and the representatives were very friendly and helpful. The trailer had cigarette butts and packages in it. Seems easy enough to just sweep this out. Overall, happy with the experience.

The man who took care of us was very personable and took care of business. I run a small business and I know how hard it is to find good employees.
