The gentleman who helped me was customer focused, providing accurate estimate of the wait time on a busy afternoon, patiently showed how to hook up the trailer, chains and wiring and sent requested information about the drop off location promptly.

The UHaul representative was EXCELLENT. He should be considered a highly valued employee that you are lucky to have under your employ.

Headlights were a bit weak. Cruise control would be nice.

Everything went so smoothly, especially since this was the first time we had rented anything like this. Even better, when we called to ask if we could keep the truck a little bit longer, they were more than happy to accommodate us. They didn't have anyone else ready to rent it until the next morning, so it was not a problem for us to keep it until then. Above and beyond good service!

When I arrived (7:15am) only one person working and they were in the restroom. Waited 5 or so minutes without knowing if ANYONE was there. Also it was raining at pick-up time and no thought was gievn to getting the vehicle in the rain or having to park my personal vehicle in a vacant lot next door and walk back all in the rain. I know U-Haul certainly not control the weather, but just make the customer more of a priority.

Only one agent working when returned vehicle. Long wait til I was waited on. Truck had broken headlight cover and not that clean inside cab but had 120k miles.

Promote the young man who helped me. I believe his name is Antowan. He has helped me several times. He always knows what is going on in the store. I have seen him help other employees. I believe he would make a very good supervisor/manager. Don't loose a good employee!!!

This location has always been too small for the amount of business they do. There is little room to park, and the wait for an attendant to help is too long.

Only one person on duty both Friday pickup and Saturday return, he was constantly racing but with seven or so customers in line and he had to go out with each one to show or check truck. Average wait 35 to 45 minutes. Poor management to not staff appropriately.

I waited in line at the counter to 20 minutes both coming and going because there were only two people working the location. More help on a Saturday is definitely needed.

Very fast and easy in and out. Agent was very upbeat and happy. Just wish the street access were easier from both directions (median in the road).

We had the needle on the gas gage in the middle, where it was when we picked it up...then I was charged $15 for it not being at the right level.

Great Customer service. Staff even pulled out the vehicle to ensure I exit the premise safely.

Make sure the equipment is in good repair. There is water leakage inside the passenger side corner of the cab overhead area where boxes may be stored during transport. I did call after I returned the vehicle to report this issue. There was no damage to the goods I was moving as I did notice and deal with the situation before that occurred. Please refer to the person I talked to during my follow up contact. Had it been raining harder during my move from Des Moines to Grinnell there would have been more damage to my cargo. Thankfully that did not happen. Would be nice to have some compensation for this such as a coupon towards future business or better yet a reduction of my rental fees. call me if you have questions -- 515-783-8807

I rented a 5x9 high side trailer with ramp. The trailer rattled, shook our vehicle badly with bumps in the road and made an incredible amount of noise during our 11 hour round trip. This was not a pleasant experience!
