Oh my gosh! I cannot say enough positive things about the staff who helped me check out my equipment. Concerned about the 24 hour return window, Ana worked with me to give me the time with the truck I would need for a stress-free move! She was also helpful in suggesting alternatives (trailers) should my selected truck end up being too small. So helpful, so wonderful! The staff member who actually rang me out was professional, friendly, and had a great sense of humor!

Got my truck quickly. I liked the clamp in the back to secure the dolly, usually it rolls freely banging around.

Very nice experience and reasonably priced. Thank you! I will send friends to this location. The middle-aged black man working behind the counter (I can't remember his name) was extremely helpful and courteous.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE OF MY LIFE FROM THE FACILITY OWNER We rented a storage space from Capitol Blvd Uhaul downtown in December to store a leather sofa and some other stuff. We declined their tremendously overpriced insurance primarily because standard homeowner’s insurance policies will cover losses in storage. (Check your HO policy before you buy). The week of Xmas we were out of town. We got a call from Uhaul, telling us that there had been a water leak in the building and that there appeared to be water in our storage unit. We got to town the next day and found that water was indeed covering the floor and our leather sofa that was standing on end was soaked through. Other items were damaged as well. The leak was caused by failure to empty a condensate drain in the building. We were told by staff at Uhaul that the unit needed to be emptied of water daily and that no one took care of it during Xmas. Apparentlhy it had happened before as well. Clearly a failure on Uhaul’s part. Uhaul offered us nothing. I was told to talk to the owner Paul Smedburg. He could not have been less concerned, offered not even an apology and told us he would offer no help (not even a month’s rent refund) because we didn’t buy his insurance. I would understand that Uhaul wouldn’t pay a claim if they were not at fault (fire, tornado, whatever). However, the damage occurred because they didn’t conduct daily maintenance. It’s clearly unreasonable that we should have to buy insurance from a merchant to protect us from his negligence. Our homeowners policy covered our claim but we lost a $500 deductible, and the claim counts against us if we file again later. Again no help from Uhaul. This is easily one of the worst two or three customer disservice interactions I’ve had in my life. I can’t convey how unhelpful, disinterested and completely unconcerned Mr Smedburg was about what occurred. It was astounding. A perfect storm of incompetence, fault and horrid customer relation. Smedburg owns the downtown facility at 716 Capitol (or is the frachisee, or whatever) and the other large Uhaul center on 3001 Capitol Blvd. This guy deserves no one’s business.

The location was centrally located in the city, A little far of a drive for me but mine was a last minute reservation so it could've been worse.

I believe the representative helping us was a Mr. Bland? Your next customer is in good hands with his outstanding and enthusiastic work ethic. I forgot a couple hitch accessories and he went above and beyond to make things right. Thank you!

Dropped off truck after hours so I was not able to get a real feel for the store. Layout of parking lot was easy and when I called into this location the lady on the phone was helpful.

Poor staffing at this location for volume of customers. Made reservation night before online and still took 45 mins in store to pick up a trailer.

I dropped off a one way U-Haul rental at this location. I pulled in, and the manager was standing in the parking lot and told me exactly where to park. After I hopped out he made sure I hadn't left anything behind, then told me he would e-mail me the receipt and I was free to go. He promptly took care of the receipt and didn't place any additional charges on the account. The whole process took about 3 minutes. I can't think of any way it could have been easier.

One complaint. On the day that I rented the trailer it began to rain. There was a male representative that was supposed to assist in attaching the trailer to my truck. He sat inside of a moving truck waiting for the rain to stop. I sat outside for 35 mins waiting for him to assist. Two lady reps came out of the building and assisted me with loading the trailer. They apologized and said that the male rep "didn't want to get wet". I rate the location excellent because the ladies were considerate of my time and waiting and they decided to come out in the rain to assist. The male worker should be reprimanded.
