Get to uhaul for pickup well ahead of the time arranged for pick up...the line was very long! Important to note, tho, that pick up took place during the heavy student move rush.

The staff at the pick up location were extremely rude and unorganized. We reserved a 17 Ft truck and were told that we could only get a 26 Ft truck with no effort to help to resolve the problem. After leaving to try to find another truck rental and returning we were then given a 15 Ft truck. When the staff finally pulled our truck and tow dolly around I asked for assistance in how to attach the tow dolly in case I may have to remove it and reattach. The staff ignored me and hurried to attach the tow dolly, not even attempting to show me how it is done. He did hear me ask because he acknowledged me but proceeded to attach the dolly and quickly run off.

Make sure the rental doesn't have a strong odor of cigarettes. (It gave me a headache!)

It was chaotic not nearly enough help long lines no one in charge. The drop off and pickup was accident waiting to happen people blocking the road trying to get in. There needed to be someone in charge directing things to reduce frustration and develop a flow threw the best facility uhaul has locally in a university town.

I reserved a 10' truck and was given a 20' truck. Nothing else was available even though I reserved it more than 1 mo. in advance. Also took 45 min. to get the truck.

I was worried because I had to change my pick up time, however I it was not a problem...pleasant experience.

The main problem was with the type of rental that was reserved. I reserved a van and could only have a truck even though I was able to reserve a van online. They stated it was because their vans only go in town and I was returning it in St. Petersburg. They said it wasn't their job to try and resolve the situation. I could call and complain if I wanted to. Take the truck or don't take the truck was their attitude. They really didn't care. Said it was an online problem. Although we have never driven a truck before we were able to get it back safely to St Pete. but I'm sure it cost us a lot more in fuel than if we were able to have the van as reserved.

The only service that I would commend on would be the person that hooked up my car port. Everything else was a disaster. I had made a reservation and even used express check out and it was still a terrible experience. The ladies up front needs manners when speaking to customers. Poor management and customer service. This location definitely needs improvement asap.

The staff were extremely apologetic and friendly. I have no qualms about the staff in particular, but made a reservation to pick up a truck and a dolly. I arrived 10 minutes early, and did not walk out with a truck (no dolly even though it was reserved) until 40 minutes after the reservation. I understand being overwhelmed by last-minute moving in Gainesville, but this was a bit ridiculous. I then ended up paying late fees in my apartment complex for not moving out on time (I was 30 minutes late giving keys back, which I chalk to not receiving a truck on time). I would suggest in the future that more staff may be needed on days in which you anticipate a lot of customers. I look forward to seeing how those changes are made, if I decide to use this location in the future.

Terri was an amazing customer service representative. However, UHaul chose to have only one person working on one of the busiest days for moving of the year. Terri was running back and forth to make our wait time less. It's disappointing that Uhaul didn't have the foresight to hire more than one person and it caused incessant wait times

I was told that I had to purchase U-Haul coverage or put a deposit of $500 down if my insurance did not cover said deposit. I don't believe that is proper procedure.

Immediately terminate your General Manager Cindy Proto at this location, she is EXTREMELY rude and condescending and SHOULD NOT be interacting with customers. With the variety of choices in the marketplace excellent customer service is critical in this day and age..and Cindy Proto simply lacks it....Someone other than her needs to be put in place that can execute that...

Hire more staff to accommodate seasonal spikes in business. Waiting in line for 20 minutes to pick up a reservation only to find that it is unavailable; being stuck in the turn lane waiting for uhaul trucks to clear their traffic obstructions; and running out of boxes is unacceptable.

I called the 1-800 number and spoke to Tammy about changing my reservation last minute. She was very polite and helpful and made choosing Uhaul for my next move a no-brainer.

Ordering the truck was difficult. I got quoted a price or 396.00, and did some research on my own, and got a rate of 109.00. Pricing a rental shouldn't be that hard.

The employees were very nice & tried to be helpful at the location I went to pick up my rental. I made a reservation online & was told I would be contacted within an hour with where to pick up my rental, no one ever contacted me. Instead I called after approximately 3 hours. The lady on the phone for the 1-800 number was not helpful in the least & was not nice. She told me that they were very busy in Gainesville and she did not know if I would even get a truck today because orders are still downloading from 2 days ago. I understand it is busy, it's a college town & I live here! How do you not process reservations on a daily basis ? That is ridiculous. So you keep taking reservations for trucks that are not available ? I've been warned about uhaul doing this but I decided to give Uhaul the benefit of the doubt. If you do not have trucks then stop taking reservations, SIMPLE! I had movers ready which I had to pay a cancelation fee. They did finally say I could pick up a van at 2:00 but I would have to return it at 6:30 . I need the truck for 10-11 hours, which is what I reserved it for! I ended up having to take off work and move the rest of my stuff in my car by myself. Furthermore, on top of everything I had to pay full price for 4 hours, thieves you are! Rest assured I will never use Uhaul again & I will spread my experience all over social media to warn others of your lack of attention to detail and customer service.

When I received the van and got down the road I noticed the windshield had a small crack. This is illegal and I could have received a ticket. Thankfully I didn't but it should have been repaired before I rented the van. Other than that it was a very nice van. The people were very nice and I had to extend my rental because we got rained out while moving and they were happy to do so with no extra charge.
