The man checking our truck back in was rude and wanted to charge us for additional gas when the truck was returned at the same level it left.

The staff at the Sarasota location, upon learning the rental would be one way and not returned to them, said as an aside to each other "give him one of those ones." I requested a dozen pads, but on opening the back there were an indeterminate number of pads in two disheveled piles on the upper over the cab portion. They didn't bother to count these, simply stating that there "were at least 18" and that I was getting more than I asked for while they were only charging for a dozen. Turned out that this was completely wrong. While loading late at night I discovered there were only 11 pads - but the office was closed and I needed to finish loading and commence my trip northward. Later, upon return, there lazy failure to count the pads and add the 12th one, cost me $6.00 for something that is neither my fault or legal obligation. I returned all pads that were actually there. But the biggest problem I encountered due to their negligence was dangerous - the passenger side mirror, part way into the trip during the early morning hours, shifted so I couldn't see anything on that side of the truck. I pulled into a rest area and tried to fix it in place with duct tape, to no avail, it wouldn't stay but instead kept moving outwards. Next morning on the road I bought a small round "blind-spot" mirror to at least allow me to drive more safely when switching lanes. I regret to inform you that your two staff people on the day of pickup in Sarasota failed to provide the level of competent service that UHaul should expect from it's employees, and provide to its customers, ensuring a safe and fair experience. I cannot recommend this location to anyone as the negligence resulted in a dangerous situation and unwarranted charges for a pad they failed to provide. Lastly, the truck had less than a quarter tank of gas when picked up, something I've never encountered with UHaul before - usually the trucks are full or near full of gas. I herein request that the $6 charge for the pad be refunded, and that my costs for the 'blind spot' mirror be refunded as well (the receipt was provided to the drop off location).

I would have preferred to have started out with a full tank of gas, and went over the the previous dents and scratches so when I returned the truck they would not be asking me if I damaged something I knew nothing about. I couldn't get through to customer service, called three times, one time waited 15 minutes with no answer trying to retrieve code for workers. Yet over all it was good and would do it again.

Can't think of a thing. Personnel was polite and efficient. A very good experience for this first time renter and, if the need arises I wouldn't hesitate to call and schedule.

We have always used U-Haul with no problems. This past time, I ordered a truck to be used 1 day from our previous city to our new location (therefore, there were two separate locations to whom I was in contact. We picked up our truck, very clean. Problem was, the gas was not filled up to the appropriate 1/2 tank mark. The associate helping us simply marked on our paper contract, the actual amount of gas given per written gauge on the contract. Still, I thought, no problem. During our move, it poured rain much of the day, so realizing we would need more time, I called the UHaul location we had previously rented from; asking of my options for renting the truck another day. I was transferred to a Customer Service Rep. The customer service rep was very courteous and gave me 5 days and 200 extra miles free of charge!! I was thrilled and couldn't believe they would be so generous. We were to return the truck on a Tuesday. The problem arose when we returned the truck on a Monday evening about an hour after the store had closed. I received a call the next day letting me know I would be charged $20 for fuel reimbursements and $40 for the extra day I had used. (But I didn't use an extra day...and the gas was filled properly) hmmm... The General Manager of the location was extremely unhelpful in determining why my gas contract said 3/8 tank, while his contract said 1/2 tank. He also stated I was only to have the truck for 4 days, instead of the original 5. I spent the next week sorting matters out. I called the Customer Service line 4 times, with no return call. To which, I was told a Manager would call back in NO LATER than 3 days. Never heard back. I called the 4th and final time. The woman I spoke with stated she could not get anyone to help her and was going to have someone call me back. Thankfully, I refused to get off the phone until my issue was resolved. She finally, seeing before her that everything I had stated was correct, refunded my money. Why couldn't all of this been prevented? Why am I STILL wasting time on a move that happened 2 weeks ago?

The truck was clean but the transmission is going and it hopped all over during shifting. DUE to this unexpected jerking it created damage to my Brand NEW furniture. NOT HAPPY WITH THE JALOPY!
