the employees should be more spe·cif·ic when explaining the rates and mileage i clearly told the employee where i was going and she never told me to make sure i knew the mileage as i pull out my phone to check the mileage she quickly tells me well just do a estimate which i was thought she was rushing me on my return im sitting in the truck waiting for someone to come check in and the sign say not to get out when clearly the vehicle in front of me the passenger was not in the car and no one was checking in the vehicle he was outside on the phone ans when i get out after 15 min like i dont have things to do she comes out and say get in the car isnt that ironic i sit for 15 mins no one comes out i get out here she comes then she tells me my bills is a whooping 112 dollars gas 30 dollars i will never rent from them ever again i will spread the word on every social media there is the dishonesty is just sad its a recession people struggling and we need the truth no more

Your vehicles are good and your employees are friendly and helpful, but you need a new credit card terminal. 5r

I made a reservation to pick the trailer up in Morton Grove at 7am. When I got there they told me I had to drive to Evanston to get the trailer. That would have been nice to know this in advance. The trailer had a bald tire and expired plates (exp 2012). The trailer was clean and the service I received in Evanston was top notch. The check in and hook up was great.

This location was helpful but We are VERY disappointed in U-HAUL service as a whole. We booked a truck and tow dolly in our home town 4 weeks ahead, only to get a phone call 2 days before the move to ask us to go to a different town on our move day to pick up the truck and a different car carrier (which we did not want). Then we were given the around to go to 2 separate location, then finally we were asked to drive 45 minutes one way to go to a final location that had everything. You guys are in the rental business.. It is basically like if I had rented a compact car at o'hare airport and you called to confirm that you had a ford explorer at midway instead.. If I rent specific equipment, that is because that is what I need. If I rent it from a specific location, that is because it is what I want. Moving trucks to make them available to your customers is kind of the only thing you sell...NEVER AGAIN!

Fast drop-off and had my receipt within minutes.

I reserved a 17 foot truck (I even printed off the confirmation so I know I reserved it); however, when the U-haul location called they said they only had a 14 foot truck. At that point, it was too late to find a 17 foot anywhere. I don't know how this mix-up occured, but it was kind of a bummer - since I was driving 220 miles to my destination, I wanted to maximize the trip.

I think the effort to get me to buy U-Haul CDW insurance is too aggressive and heavy-handed.

The system to schedule a reservation is ridiculous. I had to schedule moving out with my condo, so was only given 9 AM to noon to move out. I scheduled the truck pick up for that morning at 7:30 AM. Then, the day before pick up I get a call saying that our truck is only available at 11 AM. There was no way that works for us. So, at the last minute we are worrying about how to get a truck for our scheduled move out. There needs to be a way to schedule a truck size and pick up time that will not change.

Within about 3 miles, a driver behind me pulled up to tell me one of the rear tires looked flat. I had to find a gas station with air and fill the tire with air. After the initial paid time ran out, it still only had 40#; enough for me. I wasted about 15 minutes of my and my 3 friends time, went out of my way, and paid (an insignificant amount) for the air..

the driver side window on our truck was nearly impossible to roll down. Other than that, everything was fine

I had a simple order, but Calvin handled the reservation over the phone and was the guy who dealt with me today at the store. Courteous and efficient!

I wouldn't recommend Uhaul...period. The pricing is deceptive and ridiculous.

This whole experience was smooth and easy. Efficient employees, clean and reliable equipment, good prices. Saw a lot of hustle and good customer service from the people working on the two days we were on site. This is the third time we've used this site: recommend highly!

When we made our reservation we specified pick up on Friday at 2pm and return Saturday by 2pm. When we arrived to pick up the truck at 2:30pm the female supervisor told us that we needed to return the truck by 8am the following day or take a smaller truck with a $50 credit. Both of these options weren't possible. We felt that they weren't honoring the reservation online and it was poor business to try and ask us to take something other than what we reserved. We informed her that taking a smaller truck wasn't an option and basically she would have to deal with the other customer that they over sold the truck to the following day. We wanted to reserve the truck from Morton Grove to begin with but Evanston was the only location with the larger truck so we were stuck. The reviews for this location are poor for a reason-they need to work on their customer service skills.

First, I reserved a 17' truck online at a different location. I was called the next day and informed that I could not pick it up at 10am as I had requested. I had been bumped to 4pm. That is an unacceptable practice. Second, once I informed the person on the phone that I would not accept the new time, I was given a 10' truck at this Evanston I was downgraded, but at least my pickup time was correct. Mind you, this was over the phone. I do not know who I was talking to, but I was told I could pick up my smaller, less efficient, not what I wanted, truck at 10am at this Evanston location. The day of the move, Saturday, I was called at 7am to be told that I was late to pick up my truck. This was wrong, as I'd been told to pick it up at 10am like I initially requested. I was put on hold for 10 minutes and once someone got back to me it was apparently all figured out. The last straw was the woman whom I dealt with when I got there. I went into the Evanston location as chipper as I could, having been jerked around for the past two days and the morning of, only to be greeted by the most cold woman I could think of. Granted, her job sucks, but wow, I was taken aback by her lack of proper demeanor. These people are coming into your facilities to pick up a truck to upheave their lives and set them back down elsewhere. Moving is stressful enough, and while UHAUL helped me get the job done, they certainly were not gracious at all...and definitely did not make the move easier.

The truck was fine. Its the service. I went online to rent a truck at one location off Fullerton, Chicago and when I went there they told me the truck was in Evanston.....I will never rent a truck from uHaul again. The cavalier attitude at Fullerton about me driving 30mins out of my way and then drive back 30 mins.....Nice customer service....I will tell all my friends about this experience. Regards

I was a bit annoyed that I reserved our truck for the entire day and then two days beforehand we were offered 6 hour spots much earlier or later than we preferred. Turns out we only needed a few hours, but it felt awkward at the last moment.

Extremely professional service, process of renting the truck was fast and easy. Prices and fees are very reasonable.

This U-Haul Center on Dempster in Evanston is definitely the very Best!! We have now used it three times, and every time it make a nasty day so much more pleasant, and so much lass stressful than it might have been. I trust and admire the excellent Management that Denise provides and every one of friendly and energetic Staff. Bless You!! & Thanks -- JC

Much more impressed with this rental as opposed to all of my previous rentals at this location. Wait time (both dropping off and picking up) was held to a minimum!
