My truck was absconded and I wasn't even informed of my possessions location. I had to be in the hospital for two weeks and couldn't make any sort of method of getting my property back. Every thing was stolen and all I could get out of impound was my stolen truck. Where is my property and how can I take possession?

The cargo van that I rented had a problem with its fuel system. When I tried to pumping gas into the tank after I was finished with my move, the fuel began leaking out from somewhere underneath the vehicle. I made several attempts to add fuel and this happened each time. I finally gave up and returned the vehicle without adding fuel to it.

So I showed up after a reservation and they didn't have me in sytem. Even though final receipt showed 10 foot truck receipt I reserved and ordered, so they did know. Bullshit. They say I can have van or standard truck w bed as only options. Oh, but they'll give me a little off mileage. I'm moving down the block so that doesn't really help me and I'm pretty much fucked. I only got that night to move and they botched it. Worker told me van wouldn't fit a queen size box spring. Everyone sleeps on a queen or bigger and everyone knows that. I took the van and the queen fit but we had double the trips and all around it sucked. Prolly not her fault, but yeah, I was pretty pissed. Should at least be a reserve oh crap truck for a situation like this.

When I received my truck, there was not a half gallon of fuel left in the tank like the contract said. The attendent drove the truck to the street, got out and said have a nice day, and ran back inside. There was slightly less then half a tank of gas. I filled the tank up to slightly less than half a tank of gas. I dropped the truck off over night. I then received a bill for $12.75 for EZ fuel sales. This is not right. I want that money back.

The staff was very rude when I dropped off the cargo van I rented. I accidentally forgot a blanket in the van, and when I called back the next day; the gal said that they threw the blanket away. I was very very upset and will not recommend anybody to this location.

When checking in and trying to place the last remaining items from the rental into a storage space we had many many problems. First the gentleman seemed to have no idea what he was doing. We were given very confusing descriptions of the different rooms and procedures to enter the area to drop off and pick up our equipment. Then he told us there was a support beam in that particular storage locker and we should go check out the room just in case. A lady came to show us where to go, she was very nice but the way there was so long and confusing we had no idea where we were. While we were walking back, they instructed my husband (after much confusion of the best way to go) how to get back to the loading docks and he headed that way with the large rental truck. We got back to the loading dock and the area was all coned off with a large piece of equipment blocking a lot of the area. They were apparently painting the roof of the building in the middle of business hours. One of the men on the construction team told the lady helping us that we could use the last loading dock and to move the cones. My husband began to back into the area and the two men started screaming at us that we can't put the truck there because they are painting. We had every right to be there and be able to access our storage area during normal business hours and the Uhaul employee gave us permission. The two men were extremely unprofessional and rude when one of their crew memebers and a Uhaul employee were the one's to give us the ok. We only had two items to remove from the truck and it literally took us 10 minutes to back the truck up, remove the refrigerator and stove, and move the truck out of their area. When we finally were able to retrieve our items after much aggravation, we moved the items to our storage and were on our way. Our entire trip should have taken about 20 minutes but instead we were there for hours between the front desk not knowing what they were doing and the rude contractors arguing with us for no reason and after moving all day all we wanted to do was get out of the heat and relax. Overall we were extremely dissatisfied and disappointed in the level of service we received especially because our entire family always uses this location and have never had any sort of problems in the past. We will now have to seriously consider whether the convenience of this location will make up for the serious disappointment we now have in this company.

I don't know what is going on at this location, but everyone from the Manager on down had a very poor attitude. I drove up to return my rental and waited outside like the sign said for someone to come and check me out, yet no one ever came out. The only person I saw was someone going out on their lunch break. When I asked her if she could help me, she pointed towards the door, and said I could go in to get help. When I went inside, there were 5 to 6 people standing around talking, and not one of them asked if I needed help. I had to interrupt their conversation to get some help, and even that was slow going. I can tell you right now that the problem starts with the manager of this location. When I asked to speak to him, his whole demeanor was uncaring and sloppy. I don't take time out to fill out such reviews, but I feel like you should know what's going on at this establishment. I was not the only client who had problems on this day, as I saw another gentlemen before me arguing with the manager as well. I will not be using UHaul again any time soon. Thank you for the opportunity to review your service.

Didn't get size truck that I ordered, my personal info was incorrect after confirming 3 times and customer service person was not very knowledgeable.

The vehicle used E85 gas. The closest station that had E85 was over 6 miles away. Your staff didn't know that anything about it. Very poor.

Explain where/how to return vehicle. It was a bit confusing on how to get the big truck in the door, however once I went in i was told that I could pull around the block and enter on the side. Only commenting on this because of a heavy rain storm right as I was returning the vehicle. Otherwise I was very satisfied with the overall experience at this facility.

The trailer leaked significantly, leaving water stains on my couch and a lamp. Screw holes in the ceiling needed to be filled with silicone, which my boyfriend did.

The truck we were given broke down twice in the 8 hours we had it, forcing us to stop our activities and get a jump from one of our friends helping us move. Otherwise, compared to every other Uhaul location we've used, this place was fast and the wait was super short.

Verify vehicle can clear the ramp to load tow dolly. Mine had a too low front end and caused a loss of two hours of time when we brought truck back to site to load tow and vehicle.

The wait time to pick up our reserved vehicle was terrible. There were tons of people waiting and only two people working. We were under a deadline, which made it more frustrating. The same thing happened when we dropped off. Hire more people!

Very old uhaul fleet of trucks. The truck I used broke down 2 times. Uhaul representative at uhaul location indicated all the 26ft trucks they have are faulty and always being sent to get repaired. Will not use uhaul again.

The truck we got had issues from the start. Within the 10 mile drive home we saw the brake lights didn't work and there was a fuel leak that made the cab hard to breath in. Get that truck looked at before giving it to anyone else! However, ALL the people we talked to at the 5th ward location were awesome! Benjamin was especially helpful during the return. Despite the truck, this was one of the best Uhaul experiences yet.

This was the first time I ever rented a truck and I must say the experience was excellent. Christeen was a perfect customer service person. She answered all my questions and made me believe my satisfaction was important to U-Haul. In the past I've relied on friends and family for assistance. This time I was not under the usual pressure. I was amazed the experience was so flawless and I will definitely use their services in the future.
