I had a pick up between 7:00am-7:15. I was running a little late. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes to go over contract information. Questions & options have to be discussed and written. U-Haul manager Laneesha H.was very thorough in explaining policy in a swift fashion. I didn't look at the clock constantly but she knew that I was pressed for time. We exchanged small holiday talk to make the time fly while she was processing the contract. I will continue using U-Haul of University City. Blessed Holiday season to the staff and management. Thank You.

My favorite aspect of the West Philadelphia location is that it is accessible by public transportation. It would have helped me if there had been better instructions for how to adjust the side-view mirrors. U-Haul should change their policy and allow one-way rentals of the vans.

The lady who was there as the manager or customer rep. was so rude and unprofessional and should be sent for a proper training and or be made to be under someone who can really apply managerial skills. She does not qualify to be on that position.

Sundays are always busy very busy days, but there's never enough staff to help the flow of customers. People wait almost an hour in line. Need a little more staff on Sundays.

We ran into some unforeseen circumstances and was charged for 2 days. Had I known that at the time before I turned it in I would've kept it the addl 12 hrs instead of paying someone $80 to continue with the move. I should of been told at drop off before I signed off on the return and given the option to return it by 1 pm of 11-22-14

The staff members, at this location, were courteous and professional at every level. From the front desk person who initiated the reservation to the lot attendant who finalized my transaction upon returned of the vehicle. Very well done!!

You could use more personel . Very busy location and everyone working trying to keep up. Otherwise very happy.

Not enough people working there. Very busy. I am mostly irritated with the insurance. I paid for it, was given a little pamphlet that said nothing about theft not being covered but that your posessions are covered, and then had my bag stolen out a truck because apparently the lock is easy to bypass on your trucks. Not happy, especially when I was blown off by your insurance company and having no documentation what so ever saying theft was not covered. I have always used U Haul in the past, but after this, forget it. Screw you guys.

The mirror on the passenger side kept moving. The mirror needed to be tighten. It was raining and the wind kept blowing it close to the window. Very annoying. Other than that it was fine.

The sales rep did not ask me for my driver's license. He just told me to swipe my debit card!!
