The cab was not clean at all, it had been splashed with coffee all over the door and steering wheel and the steering wheel itself was sticky. The vehicle was not well maintained; the allignment was long overdue for an adjustment. For a truck with only 26,000 miles and being only 30% full, the engine seemed to have less than adequate in "normal mode" or "tow/haul mode"

I wasn't sure when this drop off location closed. I thought when I chose the location, it said it was open pretty late. The internet said Doc Auto was open until 5:30 but when we got there, the UHaul part was only open until 4. There was just a sign in the truck that said "to get your deposit back.. you have to go there when it's open..." and I wasn't even sure I had a deposit. Maybe that's for in town moves, I don't know. Despite me being somewhat anxious about the drop off procedure, it was actually really easy to do it after hours and I got the confirmation email this morning. At one point, I looked at the uhaul website linked from my email and it was a convenient mobile website with directions to my specific drop off location. Adding information about time, or even a note that reminds people that after hours drop offs are fine, would be helpful, too.

I requested a 10' truck, but ended up with a 14' truck, which was way too big (and much harder to drive) for my son's stuff. Although my rate was the same for the bigger truck, our stuff ended up shifting a little during transport despite the straps.

When we finally got in the truck, the check engine light was on and they had to add 4 quarts of oil to it. I also stated multiple times that I wanted insurance on the auto transport and truck we rented and she only have it to me on the truck. When I called once I noticed this error, it was a huge hassle.

The person that helped me gave me inaccurate information about the rental and the allowed mileage. I think he was new to the position.

Nice female manager. She is smart and adaptive to customers' needs (observed and experienced.) Young, Hispanic, male worker VERY UNHELPFUL, rude, not accommodating to customer's needs. To quote him, "we're here to screw you"--which I found offensive. Young, blonde, male worker very professional, accommodating, and business-like. Courteous young man. Generally, the people seem nice and professional....except one. That individual spoils and makes difficult the entire experience. I hesitate to report this as I fear repercussion from the one poor worker I am complaining about and he has my information.....can this be confidential?

The location and personnel were fine. The vehicle transport ordered for me had a broken strap, so I was given a bigger trailer. It was a nail-biting experience loading my little Karmann Ghia up those ramps with a big gap in the center. When I returned the truck and trailer the guy wondered why my Ghia wasn't chained as well, something I should have been shown. I also left behind $50 worth of gas in the tank because it wasn't full when I got the truck.

It wasn't clear what gear to put car in tie. I looked online and reviewed video that was recommended. If this info could be given at pick up and/ or posted on trailer that wiuld be helpful. In middle of night (3am) I finally called customer service. Initially she said neutral but then after checking manual it was Park. Although the agent ultimately was helpful., even she seemed confused about the correct gear for car on tow dolly.

The pickup location was poorly stocked with supplies, and the staff was not helpful.
