I had reserved online to pickup at one location. I was not notified in any way that apparently that location didn't have what I needed and was redirected to a different location across town. It wasn't until I arrived at the first location and started making calls that I found out where I was to go. I finally talked to the pickup location and they told me that they had everything ready for me. When I arrived they told me that they didn't know if they had what I needed but would go check out in the lot to see. I was renting a truck and car hauler. It wasn't until my car was loaded that I was told that I couldn't disconnect the car hauler from the truck - only the drop-off location could do that, thus rendering the loading ramp useless. With these three things, this is a terrible way to run a business.

The location was short on pads (though I'd reserved twice the amount I received). Otherwise, excellent customer service. I was assisted by Julian Ginori who was especially helpful and a pleasure to work with.

The gas gauge was not at the right amount when I got the truck.

We had reserved a utility dolly, which I was told had been placed in the back of the truck with the 12 furniture pads we had also rented. When I arrived home, there was no dolly in the truck, and when I called U-Haul they said there were no more available. I was not offered a refund for the rental cost. The lack of a dolly greatly reduced the efficiency of our move.

When hiring technicians to install equipment that potentially could result in the death or serious injury of your customers, make sure that associate is trained properly.

Put in more gas than needed but would not give credit

They were attentive and professional. I spent very little time in line.

Central reservations did not call me that truck and dolly were available, apparently texts messages were sent. I do not do check texts. I called and confirmed equipment would be available and ready to go at designated time. Was assured it would be. Hired helpers to help load vehicle. On arrival nothing was connected, original tow dolly blew up fuses in tow vehicle and it took almost 45 minutes at the location to get equipment. First I hate dealing with a central reservation system who can't give me a yes or no, and second when I confirm equipment will be ready and waiting, hire 2 helpers, and arrive to find nothing has been done and equipment is faulty, I'm left with a bad view of U-Haul and an empty pocketbook. The local agent says they never do have equipment ready to go until a customer arrives, even if reserved and a credit card reservation is made to guarantee it.

Not enough parking. I took bus, but driving customers blocked lanes so I had to come inside and tell employees I was back.

Trailer needs a tongue jack. It is way to heavy for a person to lift. It took 2 BIG guys to drop it on the ball.

I had rented from the Archer Rd U-Haul and expected to pick up the truck from there, however I was told that my truck was on main street. It was disappointing to have to drive across town to get it.

Watch out for the pig-tail extensions. The one they used with me was bad resulting in a delay in checking my wiring and then the tow dolly before figuring it out.

There is a need for more lot space to house the various pieces of equipment. Due to this very favorable location, an investment in some adjacent property would seem to be well worth the money.

To far for drop-off, should be able to drop-off at any U-Haul location. Added additional 10 miles to bill?
