When I got there, they did not have my reservation. I called that location the previous day, and a woman there told me she was switching my reservation back to that location at 4857 Chestnut St and she wasn't sure why someone had switched me because they had a truck available for me. When I got there the next morning, there were no trucks available for me and I waited almost an hour for one to become available. Because of that, I have to pay the moving company for a whole extra hour.

We had booked the U-haul from 1300 Belmont ave Philadelphia location at 2:30pm. When we arrived at 2:19pm they said we were too early!!! And they did not have the cargo van available!! When we asked about the availability she said that the person before us came in 1st so he has the van. The person who took the van had a booking for 9:30 am!! Do u expect us to get to location at 930am for 230pm appointment?? Very disappointed with the response from the representative. This is after having a guaranteed booking!! So when we asked for $50 refund she said I cannot give u that. Customer service was way below average . So she set us up at other location and said they will refund the money. When we got to other location he denied paying $50 refund. But he did call traffic manager who said he will take care of it (which we r still waiting to get resolved). We lost valuable 1.5 hrs in this as we were on clock to get moving done. Totally disappointed in the service. Reps at front desk were least interested in what we call "serving customers".

I really appreciated the helpfulness of the associate who handled my reservation...i think it might have been taneesha. She was attentive and focused in spite of being near the end of a long shift.

I returned the eqippement after hours on Sunday. Today is Tuesday and I haven't heard from anyone about how much the cost was. I understand that the cost that was charged was estimated. The amount of miles that was used, was not what was estimated. I think that better communication with customers that return equipment after hours will help both the customer and the company.

Staff was very professional and helpful. The person checking in the vehicles took great pride in his work and the maintenance and upkeep of the vans! Great overall experience.

My miles for the truck rental was only 8 miles but the clerk listed it as 10. Are the miles rounded up to the nearest tenth?

When I arrived to drop off an auto transport there was a long line that did not move. The staff here seem very slow and unresponsive. Customer service is not their strong point, nor is efficiency. I recognize they can get very busy at times but the Athens, GA, location gets just as busy and handles it much better -- plus the Athens folks seem to actually care and be motivated, unlike the folks at this Philadelphia location. I wish the folks here in Philly would learn a thing or two about efficiency and customer service from the folks in Athens!
