I normally don't take the time out my day to complete a customer review. Nevertheless, the level of excellent customer service I received from Chris, Ricaurte, Sean, T.v. was great. From the the greeting I received as I entered the store, to the assistance I got doing the wall around. Thank you Uhaul for great employees and always providing great rental equipments.

I was highly impressed with the people here. Everyone was friendly, professional, and efficient. I usually dread it when I have to move furniture, but the people at the local U-Haul helped make it as good an experience as it could be.

The truck was a bit rough with almost 160,000 miles on it. Thankfully I only had to drive the truck fully loaded a few miles. If I was going farther I would not have been comfortable with the truck I was given. The battery in the truck also died, I had to jump it with my personal vehicle. The person who helped me at this location was friendly and quick, very happy with his service.

used the 24 hr dropoff, which worked fine. It would be helpful if they added lighting for late night drop offs

Staff were friendly, fast, and efficient both upon arrival and pick-up of the truck and return.

This staff was very helpful and friendly. We were staying in Gainesville while our premature baby was in the NICU. Unfortunately our 2 month old did not make it and we had to move out of our apartment and go back home to Panama City. During this time of hardship, any help and friendly gestures go a long way to easing our means of returning to a normal life. Thank you.

Uhaul LIED TO ME. Have contract showing that I was able to drop off trailer at any UHaul location in Gainesville, apparently you changed the contract to only Main street. Tried to drop off near my apartment man stated Gainesville law he can not take trailers, location on Main state no such law. Was told only one trailer in the entire Orlando area was able to rent one way, I stopped by two other locations they had the smaller cheaper trailer and I could have rented. Clearly bait and switch. I call and complained was promised a call back four days later no one called. Clear this is normal practice. Will take paperwork to TV station to show my problem I had to drive 20 miles in heavy city late day traffic to drop off trailer where was easy for UHaul not what was agreed on.

The location and the staff were helpful and professional. My issue is with the "free roadside assistance" while traveling from Georgia to Florida. The brakes on the trailer got locked up. I stopped on the side of I-75 and called for help. The customer service representative refused to send someone over to help. This is completely unacceptable. I waited for 2 hours until someone from the state of Georgia's hwy emergency rescue happened to passed by and stopped to lend me a hand.

We have rented from this location many times and the staff is above reproach in every way possible. Excellent communication, positively proactive in professionally communicative problem solving, kind, courteous and with a great sense of humor and calming disposition as well. Also your staff here, on 39th Ave, in Gainesville, and in Clearwater at US 19N near Curlew Rd, always have the answers to our questions and solutions to our sometimes chaotic issues, with the innate understanding that moving and renting equipment can be daunting and stressful. With that said, your company and the staff mentioned, has always gone many extra miles to be sure that our needs are met, with a calm, and comforting professionalism that is rare in these times. We are always amazed by our experiences with U haul. Please let all these teams know that they are greatly appreciated as individuals and as a group, and rest assured that they perfectly embody the the best customer service experiences that anyone could ever hope for. We will continue to work with U haul both in Gainesville and our Clearwater drop off location which also has been an exceptional group of professionals to work with. Thank you again for all this outstanding service. We know that this kind of service is a top down and bottom up combination that encompasses a company dedicated to retaining clients and with good sense and satisfaction as the goal for your employees and clients alike. Thank you for so many positive and peaceful moves over the years that we have had to contend with. Rest assured that you have retained me, in particular for over 25 years and our family over the last two years and that as long as we continue to receive this perfect service we will always utilize U haul as our first choice for our needs. Sincerely, Nancy

The men helping us load our car to our tow dolley seemed like they either weren't sure what they were doing or did not care about keeping our car safe. The first time the car was loaded the bottom of it was scraped and so they went and made adjustments and then the car was loaded. Because of the way it was loaded though our bumper became slightly detached during the first third of our trip. We are extremely upset and trying to get Uhaul pay for the damage.

The transaction went smoothly: the truck was available as scheduled and in good condition. The price was affordable and as expected. The office seemed a bit understaffed when I picked up the truck, but overall it was fine.

The windshield wiper blades were dead. Although adequate in cleaning, every sweep of the wipers "squeaked" loudly. It rained often.

The truck had no a/c and the back lights would flicker on and off. Also the truck would make weird noises while driving.
