I called ahead to find if there was a loading ramp or dock that I could unload a motorcycle for my trip home. I did not get the location only reservations the person I spoke with sent the location a message to call me, no call came so I went the 60 mi to drop off the van to be told they did not have a ramp that could be used to unload a motorcycle. I asked to use a ramp out of one of the larger vans. the answer was no. I had to go miles to a m/c store to unload. The guy at the m/c store drove to the u/haul location to give me a ride back to my bike. (that is being helpful) charging extra because I had to search for a place to unload and not offering to even rent me a ramp is very poor. I explained to the fellow who checked me in that I mad at the circumstance not him he immediately got an attitude and would not communicate except to say (you have a nice day sir) in a condescending manner. u/haul customer service very poor at this Tacoma location.

i returned the equipment before the store openned and customer service was very helpful in directing me what to do. The receipt was promptly emailed to me.

The truck was ridiculously old and more damage than we could possibly document on the precheck form. The driver door did not close completely which was a safety concern that we addressed but were told "it should still hold". Seriously!? Being that the reservation was made weeks previously there was no acceptable excuse for such a horrible vehicle to be rented to us. It lurched and barely could make 35 miles an hour on I-5. The whole dash and equipment in the cab shook to such an extent that we were sure the truck would either explode or fall apart in transit. Customer service was non-exisistent. They read from an script like robots.

Initial pick up at bobcat on Tacoma mall blvd in Tacoma Washington was horrible. Bad office and no truck ready after confirming with a live person 2-3 days prior.

My original reservation location was ARS 406 (U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer) @ 8306 Tacoma Mall Blvd Lakewood, WA 98499. The attendant, although nice, had a difficult time. She could not find my reservation, the truck that was there she could not find keys for, and when trying to call for help from a supervisor/representative, no one would answer the phone. I lost over an hour by the time she had exhausted all of her options and I had gone to a new location and finished my rental agreement there. Luckily, this location that I finally got my rental from was very nice and organized, although after telling them the situation they didn't mention anything about the U-Haul guarantee, which I had to ask for myself. I'm still waiting for that $50 credit, hoping no more issues arise.

The truck I was given was poorly maintained. The drivers side door did not close properly, the window handle on the passenger side door kept falling off, several times the truck had a hard time starting and the fuel gage kept bouncing around. I was told to return the truck at 3/4 of a tank, which I did. Then I was charged $15 dollars cause they said it was between 5/8 and 3/4. So basically I was charged because Uhaul's equipment failed to work properly.

1) I was given the wrong address to drop off. The address said Tacoma not Lakewood. I had an 1.5hr (18 mile) fight through very heavy traffic to adjust locations. When I asked to drop off to a closer location due to the error made by U-hual I was told I would have to pay a penalty. I have a cell phone text from U-haul that stated Tacoma as the city. This was wrong. It should have been Lakewood as the city. 2) When I arrived at Lakewood U-haul the drop off lanes were full. So I proceeded to put my trailer with the other trailers. The U-haul employee became very irritated and rude because I did not pull into a drop off lane. I tried to explain myself, but she kept referring to the sign that instructed me to pull into a drop off lane. Never mind the fact that the lanes were full and the sign was obstructed by a large U-haul truck at the time I pulled in. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT ALL.

The person that greeted us when we brought back the truck was not very friendly and service-orientated. We didn't feel or were treat with consideration. After a long and tiring day of moving, the lease that person could do was reach out to grab the dolly when my husband wheeled it in instead of just pointing in the direction where the dollies were parked. My husband is a disabled veteran and shouldn't treated this way.

The location was not the issue, the issue was that the trailer was misadvertised by UHaul as having breaks. It does not, it has and emergency break should it break free. The tires on the trailer had barely any tread left and one had a moderate leak. I observed several other UHaul vehicles during my trip and my overall opinion is that UHaul does not properly maintain its fleet. In my opinion the vehicles UHaul rents are a hazard on the road.

The truck that was issued to me worked for the most part however I would like to comment that the drivers door didn't close properly but considering the age of the truck, it was in pretty good shape.

Turning into your lot is sometimes challenging because of the traffic. Other than that, service is always excellent. This visit, one of your employees found a gas card I was looking for! Very good customer service.

Employee seemed distracted/overwhelmed (a prior customer had parked his rental to block the parking lot entrance). I am still satisfied with his customer service though - he recovered well, made no excuses (or explanations)

I originally picked up the truck and it was supposed to have 1/4 tank gas but it was basically empty. I had too issue. But they do need to get on their job there.

Customer service at the counter. That was poor receiving an at turn in. The return time doesn't make sense if they start your time upon arrival an then it takes another 45 between employees chating, told to do a walk through, back to the counter waiting an more chating among employees, or no one at the counter that you have to walk around looking for someone. Then listen to the debate on who is going to do it. Relocating is already a stressful situation

This place needs a spot for parking. I was told to move my vehicle by the same person two times in the matter of ten minutes. He told me to park in a certain location and when it wasnt to his satisifcation an made me move again after i parked where he told me too. He was rude and had an attitude. The turn in process was horrible. We pulled in and there was no one outside so we waited in line at the register for 15 minutes just to be told to go back outside. I had the vehicle reserved for 24 hours and within 3 hours of picking up the uhual i recieved a phone call saying i was late for turn in. The workers did not have good interactions with the customers. The vehicle itself was good.

Our very old uhaul trailer wasn't maintained well. This led to the tire completely breaking off from the axel and almost killing me, my husband and newborn baby. Never again will I rent from uhaul!!!

no dome light, hard to see inside cab at night. parking lot at business location confusing, no place to park, no indication as to where you are supposed to park. Parking location around the corner where you are to leave your vehicle while using the uhaul truck at unmarked parking area next fast food place, which then you have to take a hike to get back to business location. when I returned the truck around 10:30 pm, I then had to walk a fair distance by myself through an area of Lakewood that is known to be unsafe, and so there I am walking around in a neighborhood in the middle of the night by myself with no protection to get back to my vehicle. I would not use this business again, However, the employees were very nice, helpful, last thing the parking area to leave your vehicle is not marked in any way and is very isolated, only marked by tow away signs, the fact that the dome light did not work was a real pain in the a--. The problems with this location is not the fault of the employees, it is the fault of the parent company . So if safety, no confusion and no hassle are what you are looking for do not solicit this location.
