We reserved a cargo van a week before we needed it through the corporate uhaul number. Our reservation was originally supposed to be for 3 days but then after speaking to the representative extended it for another day to assure we returned it on time. Got our confirmation number and confirmation email none of which confirmed the time frame. I went to pick up the cargo van today only to be told that the people in Az must of screwed up again and they really hate them because my reservation in the system only showed it was for 4 hours not days. I was told there were no rentals available anywhere in our city, sorry you can call customer service which really helped us move our son to college. Worst customer service EVER!!!!

I was hesitant renting the cargo van, but what a pleasant surprise. It drove smoothly in town and on the interstate. It met our needs perfectly. Thank you.

The trucks heater/AC fan did not work at highway speeds. Had it been a hot or cold day it would have been very uncomfortable.

The person who checked me in upon returning the equipment promised that I would have an emailed receipt as soon as he could get his remote device to work and check me in. It is 24 hours later and I have no idea what Uhaul charged me yet you are asking me for a review. What's up? Equipment and staff were fine, but the lack of receipt reduced the rating of this review.

Not a whole lot of room for improvement. The location and its people were outstanding in every way.

The truck looked fine but had some garbage in it and the vehicle broke down twice during our move.

I liked the express checkout. Very Fast pick up. The Motorcycle trailer is great, pulled nicely behind my Toyota Corolla, low to the ground for loading, will definitely use again.

The trailer that we were supposed to have did not have its lights working. The staff (who were not normally at that location) tried their best to fix it, but could not. So we were given a larger trailer. We were there over an hour because our trailer was not in working order.

The equipment was very well taken care of and clean. There could have been a little more help in a timely manner when picking up the truck, but overall, service was great.

There was only one representative to serve the customers that were waiting at the desk. It went smoothly and I was glad that I had pre-reserved my truck before going there. It saved me time even though I had to wait in line for about 1/2 hour due to other customers.

One person was running the whole show. He did a great job, but every one had to wait. It was a busy time of day.

Anthony was very helpful, friendly and I enjoyed talking to him. The parking lot was small and made it hard to get around.

Returning after hours was really difficult as people who had previously returned didn't park well. If there is any way to improve the parking directions or situation that would be great.

Everything was great. Ratchets on car hauler could have used a little lubrication.

When I ordered the trailer, I told the person who took my order that I would not have the trailer back within 24 hours. When I picked up the trailer, I told the guy the same thing. The guy who rented me the trailer was great! 24 hours after renting the trailer, I was called and told that the trailer was needed - as it had been rented to another person. I explained that I had told the person who rented me the trailer and the person I picked it up from that I would be late returning it. He said the trailer was needed and should not have been rented to me and that I would be charged for an extra day. Other than My call, I had a good experience. Taking my call into account, I'm not sure I would recommend this location.

This location did not have 2/3 of my on line reserved equipment on hand when I arrived to pick up my truck. This made my move much more difficult. Online vs on-hand inventories need to be more accurate.

The original U-Haul clerk was frustrated because he was busy. When trying to assist to me he used profanity repeatedly including the "F" word multiple times in front of me and my son. Very poor experience. Ryan at that location went above and beyond in trying to assist me. He took over when I expressed my displeasure with the original clerk.

unfortunately I don't remember the gentleman's name that help me, but I was very pleased with him. He was well prepared and very polite, we were in and out fast.

I thought the staff was execptional and well exceeded my expectations. The truck was clean and worked great. I will definetely come back again and recommend to others. Thanks for a great experience!

Anthony was very very helpful but Uhaul as a company is a nightmare to deal with and I likely will not use them again.

I had made a reservation and none of the reservation was honored. The location I had to use was 40 miles away from the one I reserved at, thus costing me more. I had reserved the truck for 24 hours of use and was only given 12, thus making our move more stressful.
