It took about 10 minutes to get checked in and on the road. Great service.

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.

More staff in the late afternoon early evening. One person working was not enough on a Saturday. He did do a great job though.

Rental was not entered in correctly. It was suppose to be for two days and he did it for only one and charge me insurance even though I said no. During return they didn't made changes, either they owner the original agreement or change it reflect the way it should be and charge according to it.

The car dolly I rented was defective and caused damage to the car I was towing

We ordered a truck to haul equipment in the truck bed. It had been two days since it snowed and the back end hadn't been cleaned out - it was untouched and full of snow. Additionally, the fuel marker was less than the metered amount, so I had to put in extra gas in order to keep from being charged the additional fees. Both issues were absolutely sub-par. I see no reason at all to recommend UHaul to anyone. For similar needs I'd rather pay more and go to Enterprise. At least there I know the truck bed will be properly cleaned and maintained.

The tires on the truck did not have adequate tread therefore the truck got stuck in the snow. I was not informed of the $8.50 fee for using my card or I would have paid cash. The associate helping us was pleasant but when I pointed out that the truck had a 1/4 tank less than the contract said the manager was not pleased when he had to mark the correct amount. Although he did not say anything, it was his demeanor and attitude that showed us how he really felt.

1/17/2015 - rented medium tow trailer. It was very clean and worked well.

I rented the largest tow behind trailer and it worked fine for how we were using it. However, it was dirty because it looked as if it just got dropped off. There was a cleaner one available, but it was not offered. Not a big deal to me in this case. If I would have been hauling something, I would have asked for the cleaner trailer.

This facility NEVER answers the phone. The staff is unable to operate the computer. The lot was full of snow on my first visit. It was full of ice yesterday. DANGEROUS!!! Penske next time!
