I have used Uhaul a number of times and have found that this location has exceptional customer service. I drove all the way across town to use them again for that reason. I would highly recommend them over others that I have used. I suggest that some of your other locations would do well to follow the lead of Brian, the GM and his staff.

Maybe have the lot attended to better. There just seemed like there were trucks willy nilly all over the place. Parking lot organization to prevent potential possibilites for damage.

Mistakes do happen. How it is handled afterwards is the key. The location manager knew they made a mistake regarding my original equipment reservation and made it right the best he could. You need more like him. I have been frustrated many times by others. Kudos to him.

Did not provide us with the truck we reserved and double charged us. Poor service.

Agent forgot to give us dollies and pads we ordered. Had to drive back to pick up. Also discovered that furniture dolly had one broken wheel after we got to the residence we planned to move.

Change oil in trucks. Couldn't see the "green" gauge.

I was told I had the truck reserved from noon to noon, 24 hours. When I arrived to pickup at noon I was told very demeaning by the branch manager that I had to guarantee the truck to be back by 9 am or he was not going to rent it to me. I needed the truck to make a moving deadline so I had to hire and pay for some extra moving help. The manager needs to be more of a people person. The truck was not clean. I had to clean bird poop off the passenger door on the inside. Also the back of the truck had smashed crackers I had to clean up.

The initial gentleman that checked me in seemed very frustrated that he had to help me. The other issue is that he had me sign the damage waiver but never told me that there was damage or that it was notated on the back of the paper. My mattress got soaked as I wasn't aware of the issue. I feel it was very shady on how he presented the paperwork like he was trying to hide it from me.

Checkout was painful and I had to wait 30 minutes. One guy was checking folks out while another, we thought was playing A game on the pic and didn't help anyone. I had to remind the check in person that I had paid for the blankets. I did the pre check in and it didn't seem to matter.

Was disappointed that U-HAUL could not take back extra packing material that was purchased from them but not needed without a receipt. They wouldn't even offer store credit. I have never come across this type of a policy before and who can keep track of a receipt during a move, very disappointing.

Other than a customer backing a rental truck into my personal truck it was a great experience.

Im afraid I don't have his name, but the gentleman who helped me 6/17/2015 was very helpful, accommodating and professional...definitely a good representative for your company.

we didn't get a 17 foot truck like requested. We got a 15 foot truck. The truck's transmission was definitely slipping and felt a little unsafe to drive. Because of the store only having one employee during what was a busy time, it took almost an hour for me to even pick up the truck. I was there at 9, didn't actually leave until about 9:45-10. Not a great service this move!
