When a customer makes a reservation and checks on it twice to confirm that we will have for moving day please make sure that reservation is available or give the customer a call. Would not rent here again due to being unreliable.

I have rented from this location before, and have experienced long waits due to overbookings and shorted staff. This visit, however, was handled efficiently and pleasantly. Thank you!

compartment looks dirty. Added over 2 gallons of gas for just 15 miles, weird. Others were fine.

Rented 14' truck to pick up mattresses, but accidentally left my bike inside the store in the hurry to the furniture store. Came back to find my bike was not inside by the boxes where I left it. Cme back first thing next morning; no bike on site, and nobody saw what happened. Store manager said she let Cameron Scott close that night. Came back another day to talk to Cameron, and he said he knew nothing. I asked his manager to see the security tapes of that night, and she gave me the run around. Called corporate, and they said that tapes are on site for managers to view. Brought that info back, and both manager and Cameraon changed their story; now he "left my bike outside (thinking I'd find it)" and wanted to pay for it. When I proved my bike was a $400+ trek, he changed his story again, but his manager convinced him to re-pay in installments garnished from his paycheck. When I came to collect, Cameron Scott had "miraculously found" the bike. Returned it to me the next day. I know uHauls policy on lost/stolen goods. I know that I was foolish to leave my property in their business. Now I want to make sure that everyone else knows: Cameron Scott is a thief and a goon, honest customers should not do business with the dishonest people of uHaul.

I have used your service and location for more than 40 years and the same image and setup has not changed or shown any uplifting livelyness or should I say livelihood to the shop. Also, there is not a waiting room after the first two clients. Sorry.

The 10' box truck I had read "Full" on the gas tank when I pulled out, but once it started moving, it dropped to 1/8 empty. I had to put in 7 gallons after a 38 mile trip in order to avoid a $30 charge plus $4 per gallon.

Clark was reluctant to serv, I was waiting in line Clark ware standing and never offered me any service when other Clark requested him then he served me. Provided wrong information as a result end up paying more and store manager declined to reimburse. It seems like company do false advertisements.

Overall, great experience. However, when I called asking if they had after hours drop-off option, I was informed over the phone by an employee working in the evening that there was no drop-off at this location (they closed at 9 PM). So, I had to keep the truck until the next morning and had to rush to return the truck early morning before the 24 hour window ended. Upon returning to the location, the employee working in the morning shift was very courteous and friendly and informed me that they had after hours drop-off service that I could have used the previous night. He also apologized for the inaccurate information that was told to me. Still, it was a very smooth process! Great job U-Haul of University City!

Fix your speedometers/odometers to read a mile at a true mile ,and not before like they do. This is the only reservation I have about UHaul; or you could lower your prices per mile. either of these suggestions would make it easier to recommend Uhaul first.

The truck I order wasnt available when I got there. I called 2 times before they said the truck was coming in at 9 am. I called 9:30 and they said the truck was there. I got there after 12 and they said they never got the truck. I asked to speak to a manager and the manager wasnt there. They told me that the manager would give me a call but she never did. Just horrible customer service experience.
