The closing time of 7pm made it impossible to drop off -- we finished unloading at 7:15. Parking the truck overnight was inconvenient, even though we had enough time on the contract to extend another day. Longer hours, please!

Just a reminder to check the Brakes they were a little squeaky. On return I mentioned it to the staff and he said that he will check on it RIGHT AWAY. I was extremely satisfied both with my check out of the U-Haul along with my check in experience. Bravo Looking forward to my next U Haul Rental. Do you give points towards Promotional item freebies. ie those nice toy Uhaul trucks or key chains, hats etc. . thankyu.

The on site service was prompt and efficient. It took longer to make the reservation on the phone but that may have been because the staff was assisting other customers in the store.

This is a high traffic location. The facility needs to be expanded. Also the lighting at the current location is insufficient. It looks dim & gloomy!

The rental process was quick and easy! We were traveling in from out of town and we were very behind schedule. The Uhaul rep by the name of Samirah really works with us. It was a big relief! We really appreciate her patience and understanding! Thank you Again!

Please Tell the customers before they park for overnight drop off (at the u haul on 48th and chestnut in center city) that thier car could be blocked in by other overnight drop offs when they return the u haul, leaving them stranded without a vehicle in the middle of the night. This was my experiance i didnt even have a phone on me to call a cab! So i had to walk and try to find a taxi i was suppose to pick my daughter up but didnt have her carseat because i couldnt walk with it (its one of the big heavy ones) so i couldnt even take my daughter home safely and ended up not getting home until way late after a long day of moving.

I loved the ease of reserving, picking up, and returning the vehicle.

The location messed up my reservation and offered me a rebete, but I was told that it could only come in the former of a u-haul vip certificate, meaning I have to spend it there. I want my money to spend as I see fit. And the manager in the store who was supposed to be helping me was rude. Not very helpful at all.

The facility could use more staff to help customers. The computer systems seem to pretty slow during my experience. Need to solve that issue.

There needs to be more than one customer service agent at the desk. I stood in line waiting for service for about 20 minutes because there was no one else working.

We talked to 2 different people and explained that we wanted to put all charges on one credit card and despite clear communication it did not happen. Frustrating.

If a long handle broom was available to remove snow off the windshield, would have been most considerate. I didn't mind removing it but I used the sleeve of my coat and I didn't have any gloves. The snow was wet and heavy ,so I kind of sort of got drenched before I started out. STILL A HAPPY & satisfied customer though because UHAUL was available when other modes of transportation were NO WHERE to be found, Allowing me to continue on with my plans and get to my destination. Thanks UHAUL! My return experience was even more Rewarding and I am truly Thankful for an A-TEAM staff.
