it was an awful experience. I asked the man working what size truck I would need and he suggested the 10 foot truck. BIG MISTAKE! I had people for 1 day to help me. It took me 3 trips. The last load sat inside the truck for days until I could get help unloading it. I ended up in the hospital because I had to do some of the lifting and loading myself. I am so angry, I will never trust a person working for your company again. I paid for 1 day because that's what the worker said would "be enough". He said, "yes a king size bed would fit." my bed did not fit...I could go on and on, but I'm wasting my time.

The pick up of the trailer was right on time and the agent hooked up the trailer and also unhooked the trailer when I returned it. Service was great. The trailer was old and had some rust but was otherwise well maintained. All equipment worked well.

A freaking nightmare! I moved 1400 miles. U Haul did not have the vehicle trailer as promised, as well it is going to cost me an additional 1100.00 dollars to have my vehicle transported. Going on three weeks with out my vehicle because of U Haul. A complaint has been filed with the Iowa Attorney General office as well small claims lawsuit! Stay AWAY from UHAUL!!!

I didn't like the way the racks were used to make isles at the front desk. It seems more cluttered. The exit lead to the main road was not an actual drive way, but a small curb that is very easily mistaken for a drive way. There is a drive way to the left, but vehicles were parked there almost blocking it. Other than that, everything else was fine. Customer service was good as well.

Keep Anthony. He does a great job, consistently. I have worked with him several times. You could make the exit driveway better by putting in a drive where the curb is now...

This is the place I wanted to drop all along but the text messages kept getting me confused. The gentleman was so nice and helped me unhook, did the check-in on line and was great to work with. Even though he only had 6 minutes before he was to close, he never hurried me or made me feel I was inconveniencing him. EXCELLENT Customer Service. I use this a lot when doing things in Des Moines.

The manager on duty had the van ready to go and I was on my way in a few minutes. When I brought the van back he met me at the van and had me checked in an a receipt sent to my email quickly. Excellent !!

We have used this location several times in the past year. They are wonderful to deal with. Always so nice and helpful. Now that we have moved there is a closer UHaul store but we will continue to use this one. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

One staff member working, took awhile to get someone to return equipment.

I had reserved a truck and a flat bed trailer to pull with my car on it. The trailer was not written on the order form for some reason so they didn't have one. I had to drive to Ames in the Uhsul to pick up a trailer.

The truck and paperwork didn't match up. The next day I was called about the truck I rented was still missing however I had returned it the day before at 7:30pm. Also I was charged for 80 miles even though I only drove 65. Overall an unorganized and poorly ran location.
