For the past year, once or twice a month you send me an email with my so called rental. I have called you repeatedly and you tell me email must have been put in accidentally. Really one or twice a month for a year! Something funny going on here!!!

I love the improvements that is currently taking place at this location. I had not been in there for about a year but Mike and the other guys remembered me. They were very nice and friendly as always. Thank you, Uhaul Friends at East Alton location

Location was my only problem since I live in Godfrey. So most of my mileage was taken getting to and from your location. overall the experience was wonderful and everyone was nice. I definitely would use all again.

Rented a motorcycle trailer and had a blowout 100 miles into a 600 mile trip. 24hr roadside assistance could not locate a replacement tire or trailer for us and wanted us to wait until the next day to see if they could get a replacement tire. I then called the East Alton, IL location and they said if I wanted to drive back to them they could give me a tire to replace it with, but they would not bring it to me, which was a unacceptable response. We ended up untrailering the and bike and riding it away, letting a tow company take it the trailer. I was not charged for anything, but was extremely dissatisfied with this rental.

I give the dropoff location excellent - however, we were supposed to pickup the truck 2 blocks away from our house - not 1.5 hours away.UHaul has a major scheduling problem. Probably wont use you again.

This is the second time we have rented a truck from this location that had major issues. When we went to return the truck, the one person working walking RIGHT passed us without even acknowledging. When he finally returned and the service man from Horton's explained all the issues with the truck and that the truck should have NEVER been sent out , the worker just shrugged his shoulders and said the truck was in the shop not too long ago. Obviously, this location has no concern when it comes to customer safety. Not only did the breaks lock up and quit working, the truck did not have break lights, it stalled and died twice while driving, the steering was off, the driver side window did not roll down, the arm rest was missing, and overall the truck rode like crap. I will NOT be recommending this location to anyone EVER. And I may stop renting from U Haul in the future.

This is not about the pick up location, but there's no where else to put it. UHaul's roadside assistance is terrible. No one should have to be on the phone for 2 hours (mostly on hold) only to find out that nothing can be done and the equipment has to be returned to the pick up site simply because one bolt was missing on the trailer- then we called the pick up site, they thought that was crazy and thankfully just delivered new equipment to us. Later in the trip we had to contact roadside assistance again due to possible transmission problems. After waiting on hold for 30 minutes with no response, we took matters into our own hands by calling a local uhaul and having them directly connect us to a service garage. Once we arranged services on our own, the service was great, but the roadside assistance hotline services deserve no credit for that. It's a terrible service and we were very unhappy with it. We will attempt to book other rental truck services before returning to UHaul.

When traffic is high there should be more than one person working customers. Wait time was bad!

Because I ordered the truck online, the attendants at the store said I could only rent the truck for six hours. I could'nt believe it. I had to unnecessarily rush around and pack more quickly than I had intended. I knew it wasn't the fault of the people at the store -- they we're only following protocol, but there was nothing on the website that indicated I would only have the truck for six hours. That fact needs to be made more obvious!

We waited around in the store for 15 minutes before having to go outside and locate an employee, who was fixing a car. The U-Haul employee told us that they just received a U-Haul truck from impound and it smelled like something had died in it- so he would be sure to give us another truck. However, that was the only one in our size available so he gave the unclean truck to us. The U-Haul itself really did smell like a dead animal and the interior was blowing off 200 degree heat at the driver's side feet.

Customer service are non existent!!! Rudest people I've ever dealt with! I was yelled at and mocked the whole time by the person who addressed himself as the assistant manager (his nane was Ian). He wiped a booger in the truck (on the steering wheel) while he was "cleaning it out." He threatened me multiple times!!! And I am a 5'1" small female!!!! I will NEVER use Uhaul again. I'm sure Budget Truck doesn't treat the people that are paying them for service this poorly.

The tank was full of gas, that made us happy, no immediate stop and we were returning where gas fill up was cheaper, so thank you. This is our second time within ten months renting the box truck and the results were excellent again. The staff members are excellent,

It took over 2 hours to find a two dolly for my car. After one was found, I was told I had to pick it up, using the truck and miles I was allotted, along with gas that I was being asked to replace. Along with this, the truck was dirty and sticky inside, and had a pungent odor. Because I had to wait I was late leaving the location I was moving from and did not arrive to my destination until 1:30 in the morning. When I went to return the truck, I was asked to pay additional fees for going over mileage which I forced to use because a dolly was not provided for me and I had to pick one up from another location. Finally on top of all of this, I received a call asking me to return my equipment after I had done so. The organization within this company is poor at best and very upsetting, along with asking customers to do the jobs of the staff. This was a terrible experience and I would not recommend Uhaul to any of my friends or family and I would not even use Uhaul as a last resort if I were to move again.

I received a text the night before that I would have to drive to another town to pick up a truck at 1:00 p.m. because the place wasn't open on Sunday. I had planned on moving bright & early on Sunday morning for a quick move from my daughters apt. What rental moving company is not open on Sundays? Had I known I would never have used Uhaul. I had to drive 20 min out of my way to get it & after talking to several people in I don't know what cities I was able to talk a man into letting me have a truck at 11:00 a.m. when I picked up the truck the parking lot was so full of trucks, I couldn't pull my car into the parking lot. Very confused! Have used U-haul many times, but will not use again unless I'm using my local facility. Nasty woman on the phone that was no help whatsoever.
