This location wasn't exactly easy to find, but the truck was fine, the lady who processed me was quick and thorough. The entire experience exceeded my expectations.

They didn't tell me they were charging me 7 dollars for a Dolley and 3 dollars for some federal fee that I have never ever heard of. They said it was similar to a tire removal fee.

The size truck I ordered was not there. I had to take a bigger truck. I was 45 minutes early and they made me feel like I put them out. Then they charged me for 2 days instead of 1. then I caught that they corrected it. Then they forgot the furniture pads so I had to go back and get them.

Location was convenient. Truck that I booked wasn't available, so they upgraded me with the next size truck. When picking up the truck, it wasn't mentioned that I had to return truck with same amount of gas that it started with.

vehicle was dirty, the fuel guage was not where they said it was if I had not checked I would have been over charged , they said I used the dolly in rear of truck did not use it ,they only thing that save me from these false charges was documentation I had when I dropped this truck back off after hours. only found out about this when I went back in the next day and argued these charges I will never recommend this location to anyone and tell everybody to stay away from there

Picked up the truck right on time, used it and returned it without any issues! Employees at this location were very helpful and friendly. Much better experience than I expected based on the other reviews of this location.

My only issue was contacting them via the contact number on the uhaul reservation. The message stated that the cell user was not available when in fact nobody was ever going to answer this (859) 394-0136 number. This was frustrating trying to confirm that the equipment and pickup time was okay. SAFE SHIP 1853 MONMOUTH ST NEWPORT, KY 41071 (859) 394-0136

Before I returned the truck I stopped to fill up the tank, even heard the click topping the gas. At the return station the guy said I didn't fill up the tank. I went back to Speedway and the gas pump wld not allow me to pump anything else. I went back and told the ladies. Also, when I got the truck this location was not noted as a return location, I told the lady. Not a good experience

Combo Fed-Ex/U-Haul, but adequately staffed.

My only huge issue wasn't with either the drop off nor the pick up location but with Uhaul themselves. I had a 26 ft. truck reserved for 3 weeks with a credit card for the Morehead ky pickup that I've been using for several years. The evening before moving, uhaul informed me that my uhaul wouldn't be there but it would be an hour away in the wrong direction for me to have to pick up. Not only did it set my moving plans back but I had to pay my moving guys extra to wait longer to me to drive a total of 2 hours out of my way that morning to go get the damn truck in Maysville. Granted the pickup place maysville was extremely helpful and arranged the earliest pickup time for me but the stupid 1-800 reservation line for uhaul was TERRIBLE!!! I will NEVER be using that 800 line again! Customer service was extremely was rude! Uhaul - without these smaller individual stores likes in Morehead, Maysville, and Newport...You wouldn't have a damn business!!!

Very haphazard service, unorganized staff and store, did not get the rental dates inputted correctly so that I had to pay a penalty upon drop off. Did not have all the packing items I had reserved online.

The price ended up much higher than I budgeted, I think you should have a local package that includes a certain amount of miles. I had initially reserved the larger truck and they called and said it was not available and gave me a smaller one. I had to make two trips with the smaller one so the rental cost me about $45 more than I budgeted because of the miles. I rated the place below average because since they had to switch me trucks they should have given me some miles free to compensate.

Staff was super friendly and a joy to work with. I'll definitely recommend Safe Ship, and plan on using them every time I need to use Uhaul. Thank you!
