I showed up a few minutes after closing on a Sunday with a 14' truck. The store was locked. We knocked on the window and the clerk just waived us off. We left to return at 7am in the morning the second the store was open. We were told that we would have to pay an additional 24 hours on the truck. When I complained the clerk just shrugged. He also said that I was a bit off on the gas left in the tank but that he'd let me go. Not true, what a generous attitude. I asked about an hourly rate instead of the extra 24 hours, he said I should have used the drop box. News to me that you had a drop box the clerk who took our order never mentioned hours, or drop boxes. Summary: not told the shop would close at 5pm on Sunday; the clerk after closing instead of waving us off could have let us know about the drop box. So could the initial clerk. Attitude of the clerk this morning. Grade: D-. This is bad customer service guys! Not patronizing this location again unless you credit me for the 24 hours, and the round trip of 10 miles to return in the am. In the spirit of shared responsibility I'll go halves with you.

One of your employees helped me with my hitch wiring with no complaints and didn't even attempt to charge me for the service. I was in and out in minutes both times I was at this location, happier and very satisfied.

Appreciated being given another day and more mileage. It alleviated the stress of moving during a record shattering rain storm.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodnessssss! I have NEVER been so disrespected or degraded in my life by a business! The WORST part was it was done by "the owner" himself!!! His name is MARK HARTLEY and "owns" the uhaul. I walked into the store to get a rental and as I opened the door Mark was on the phone with "A customer." As I waited about 7 or 8 mins I politely asked if there was anyone else that could help. He ROLLED HIS EYES then said he will be with me in a min. As I continued to wait for him to get off with his "customer" I could very clearly hear him talking to someone within the company about bringing stuff from the back to the front (Which clearly wasn't a customer) After waiting another 4-5 mins he said "ok, well i got a customer now so ill call you later" ummm.. HELLO?? Ive been here 10 mins, you could have said that when I first walked in! So what ever.. wasn't that big of a deal so I went on about my day. Now this is where my horrible experience happened and prompted me to write the review. I came back the next day to return the rental. He told me he was going to charge me for an extra day, at a HIGHER PRICE than I was told originally!! $23 higher! So I asked for the manager and he said he was. So then I asked to speak to the owner and he again said he was. At that point I demanded that I get contact information for who ever he reports to and THEN HE KICKED ME OUT OF THE STORE!!! Didnt even give me my receipt!!!!! I could understand if I was being violent or threatening but i wasnt. I will say i did have a stern tone after his smart remarks and cutting me off so many times. I shouted EXCUSE ME because he wouldn't stop talking over me. I then walked out of the store with NO RECEIPT and got in my car. He then left from the building, walked up to my car and threw my receipt in my car from the passenger side door!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Oh no thats not all. As I back up he stands in front of my car, then moves gesturing his hands down imply that NOW i can leave. uhh ok, that was really awkward. As i'm pulling off he shouts "F*****g A*****e!" and i stop hard and open my door saying "Excuse Me?!" He said "oh nothing, have a good day!" so i drove off and he said something again! I didn't catch what it was, but i'm sure it wasn't too far off from the first comment. I just can not believe I had to deal with that guy. All in all, just save yourself the headache, bad customer service and being ripped off. ******************WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!*******************

although the Broadway location was great. The call center that called to confirm the reservation on Saturday morning was rude and unprofessional, she actually hung up on me and i had to phone back a second time. Thankfully the second woman I spoke with corrected the pickup times. If i spoke to clients like that at my job i wouldn't have a job.

None- rented many trucks in the past and this was my best experience. Very helpful, not lackadaisical at all.

U-Haul doesn't seem to realize that people are moving while renting their vehicles, and that may mean that their customer's phone lines are being disconnected/switched. The policy that requires a phone number in the person's name whom is renting the truck is sheer stupidity. As long as U-Haul can reach the individual, it shouldn't matter whom the phone belongs to.

I had to wait a really long time in line to pick up my truck. There wereally two people working and both were helping others, but still it was taking a long time for people to pick up theuro reaervations.

Never, ever, EVER enough employees. This location has been steadily busy (without exception) every time I have been there and has never had more 2 employees, including management, on duty. Please schedule staff better or hire more people. The length of time it takes to just get to the front of the line at the counter is much greater than the time it would take to drive to a farther location. Moving takes enough time, renting a truck/trailer should not have to be an inclusive time factor, especially with a reservation.
