The manager, Denise, & her staff have always been helpful & professional, even on those occasions when I had to cancel a reservation. From reservation to check-out of truck to return & final statement, they exemplify customer service done right!

Overall, this is very good location-wise and is well-stocked with everything you would need for a successful move, including a good variety of trucks. However, need to improve customer interaction, front desk person especially was curt and not helpful. Eqmt people were better, particularly Anthony Brown (think that's his name) who was very courteous and helpful for pick-up and return. Truck was clean and ran well, but gas gauge did NOT work. Gauge setting on estimate form was almost a 1/4 tank off, which we discovered after turning on engine. This was corrected on form. However, once we hit the road, the gas gauge dropped further (to almost EMPTY), which caused us to stop and add five gallons (which then moved the gauge to 1/2 full -- more than what we used!). Your web site also needs work. When it asked for an estimate time for move, we were not aware nor was it stated that we were committing to returning the truck at a certain time ($29.99/day is what your ads say), and that the time included time spent renting the truck. We used 30 mins of our six-hour timeframe just in paperwork and stopping for gas. For us it was a good and bad experience.

I rented a cargo trailer the other day when I received the trailer it was dirty. The attendee asked if I wanted it swept out but I was running late. When I rented the trailer I forgot I left a 2 ft. Piece of scrap wood in the back. Prior to returning the trailer I made sure to sweep out the back. I found out after I returned it, that I was charged a $15 cleaning fee. I understand it was my fault I left the 2ft scrap wood in the back but, was it really necessary to charge me for picking up the piece of wood and throwing it out? You don't get returning customers by charging them for something such as that. If I didn't sweep it out or left it completely filthy, then yes, charge away. Not sure if I will use them.

U-haul employee was unclear about insurance plan. Didn't communicate that insurance covered property damage. Read out personal information in front other customers. U-haul truck was difficult to control on road and had a leak that damaged and destroyed several pieces of furniture and boxes.

Be reasonable and allow your staff to use common sense when checking-in customers. The staff was very courteous, but there was a problem at check-in that the staff should have been able to handle. I took out a $19.95 per day cargo van and drove it exactly eight miles. When I checked-in, the fuel gage had moved what the check-in guy noted was one-sixteenth of a tank and based on that I was charged for two gallons of gas. I pointed out to the clerk that a relatively new van with 4,500 was going to get better than four miles per gallon and offered to pay for one gallon. But he was adament that, per his rules, he could not budge from charging me the amount of fuel I used according to the needle, even though he admitted there was no way I could have used even as much as one gallon, let alone two, in driving eight city miles, Again, common sense could have prevailed here. I paid for the two gallons, but I walked away wondering how common this practice could be. A gallon of gas isn't expensive, but in this case it represented an unjustified 12 percent surcharge on what I should have paid. The van was clean and in great condition, and still a bargain even with the unnecessary overcharge.

Have more people working the desk. The person who helped me was terribly overworked. When I received my u-haul truck, it had less fuel than was marked on my contract. The person working outside to check out vehicles changed and initialed my contract, but I felt that the person inside was too busy and so I didn't ask him to change this notation in the computer, and had to rely on the handwritten change when I dropped off the truck in Madison.

After making my reservation well in advance, I specifically requested, reserved, and was confirmed a 26 footer truck. During a very hectic time for my family and I, I was under the impression that at least this huge priority was complete, but 2 days before our scheduled move I received a phone call from corporate headquarters to tell me that they wouldn't be giving me the truck I had requested. They then told me that I had to make my pickup from Evanston, a destination that was 35+ miles away from the original Waukegan, IL location I had requested. As you can understand, I was extremely disappointed because this put a huge strain on our moving plans , not to the mention the inconvenience on the movers I had hired. Upon arrival to the Evanston location early Saturday morning, I was turned away and told to go back (35+ miles) to the Waukegan location because according to the office staff this was where my truck was waiting for me. Two hours lost, and little to no apology from your staff. I was extremely frustrated and disappointed with the service I was receiving. When I thought this was the last of my horrible experience, the events downhill continued. Upon returning the vehicle to the Evanston location, they proceeded to ask me to return the vehicle to the Waukegan location which as you can understand I REFUSED to do because this wasn't an error on my part. They also didn't have a record of my order. How can a company as well known as U-Haul practice such unethical procedures with their customers. Will I be using again, I can assure you I will not.

The location is pretty tight and challenging to move around. It is a fine balance between having enough equipment for customers and have a location that can be easily navigated.

The only problem I had with the drop-off location is that the original location I had received did not seem to work as a 24 hour drop-off location and I had to call and get relocated to a new location.

Unit was clean. Unit was provided with a tire that would not hold air. This was never realized until we were on the road. Every day air had to be added to the tire. On day six of travel tire blewout.
