This U Haul location in Taos is perhaps the best I have dealt with-and I have rented quite a bit with U Haul.

Can't think of anything that needs to be improved -- The service at Metric Motors location is always excellent, helpful, friendly, smart, kind; the truck was powerful and did great, and the cost was... pretty good. One thought: The truck is advertised at $29.95 for a day, but that is rather misleading to the consumer; the mileage and gas add up. I ended up paying about $80 for a 6-hour local moving event). Otherwise, peachy!

Sam Smith was excellent in his service provided. Your online customer service was not. They said they had a truck but it turned out they didn't and I had to stay an extra 2 days in Taos to wait for a truck to arrive. Had I know this was going to happen, I would not have rented from Uhaul. Sam made it better by giving me great service and a small discount to offset some of my expenses incurred by having to wait two days.

Maintenance on the trucks needs to be done a bit better. The breaks were sluggish and felt they needed top be changed. Other than that the truck was in great condition and did what it needed to do.

The person we worked with was Sam. He was very kind and informative and helped answer all of our questions and concerns. Our trailer got a flat tire on our way home and we didn't get home before the time designated to turn it in, but Sam worked with us and made our experience AWESOME!

My biggest and only complaint is about the type of vehicle I had to rent. My motorcycle had broken down on a vacation. I wanted to rent a pickup or panel van with a ramp of some kind to transport my motorcycle to Minneapolis. Instead I had to get a 10' box truck and a trailer. It nearly cost me as much in fuel to drive this rig as the rental itself. U-Haul should make vans and pickups available to one-way rentals. I was very disappointed.

Sam at Metric Motors is the BEST! We have rented equipment from him for the last 7 years and it has always been a perfect experience. This is our last move and we will miss Sam.

Advise in advance that truck rentals require proof of insurance at time of rental.

I called to let them know we were on our way. The man rudely told me we could leave the trailor when they were not there. Just park by the street but do not park close to the building. When we showed up I went in to let them know we were there. The man at the counter yelled no he cant park there and ran out of the building told my husband to take it to the back. I asked him if someone is going to help him with it. He told me he would get someone. I stood there for awhile and finally he came back I tried to ask if there was anything he needed he just snapped at me "your done". They were rude and unhelpful and we were treated like we were in the way.

Very thorough and professional in person and online. Knowing the approximate mpg of vehicle would make it easier to estimate how much gas one needed to put in to return vehicle with gas gauge at original check-out level.
