Miss Lorraine was very professional and courteous .
Thank You , your business is like a breath of fresh air in a contaminated room!
So refreshing to have excellent customer service and a an overall great experience from check-in to check-out. Thank you for helping make my transition easy!
First I did not get truck on time and then when I saw the time to return truck it had 7:15. I called to inform I was on my way but they said they closed at 7 pm.! I was so rushed to return truck at 7:15 that I was short in fuel refill by 1/8 tank only to find out they closed at 7! They should have said to have keys in drop box before next morning or by midnight. Just agrivated with the whole process and then to find out Mr Jonas is no longer manager. Awful experience. I will Ryder or anyone else except Uhaul.
Air out the vans or get different mats inside it was brand new but had a very strong latex smell which I'm allergic to -it made me sick all night- other than that everything was great
Your Uhaul rep. was so rude and made me feel so uncomfortable. All because I showed up before closing. I do not recommend this location to any one. I've rented from Uhaul before and never was treated like this. Next time I have to arrive alot early so I can avoid your rep. making faces, throwing keys at me and making comments about ruining her time of closing. I'm real upset.
I have used this location numerous times both for personal and business rentals. I can't say enough nice things about the folks over there. Quick, easy and dependable makes for a great experience.
Have more agents available
A lower mileage cost would improve the truck rental experience.
This is my go to location, friendly and great service.
Thank you , continue with the great work .
Wait time to pick up the van was 1 hour. Wait time to drop it off was 35 minutes. Unacceptable. I'll pay more for a van if it means I don't have to wait as long.
I had rat/roach issues several times. The electricity went out making it impossible to see. The staff was rude and hung up on me when they called to verify the unit was closed.
we reserved truck online upon arriving at location no truck was available. the ladies acted as if it was no big deal. we then had to wait over an hour before a truck was finally made available to us. would not recommend to anyone. thank you.
The wait time at this location is horrible. I made it there at 2:40 and did not leave out until 3:30. There was only one person working the register and the house keeping lady was of no help. Her response to everything was "I'm not trained to do that". You don't have to be trained to greet customers as they walk in and wait in a long line in such a small space. As far as using this location again I would rather go out of my way than around the corner.
The staff was helpful and courteous. Very well run office.
Great Positive attitude. they were busy and the uhaul website overbooked but they were very accomadating. even when my trucks lights didnt work for the trailer they helped me fix it so i could roll out of there.
The location I was originally given (and I am not sure whether it's the one listed) to drop off my u-haul equipment, was shut down for remodeling. I wasn't told this, so I had to find ANOTHER location in a city that I wasn't familar with, and I felt overly frusterated with that part. But the people at the place I did finally leave my u-haul equipment were super nice and helped to aleveate my frusteration somewhat. So A+ for all the people I dealt with - but the having to drive an already long drive away from my house and then having to drive ANOTHER distance... made me very unhappy.
Very easy dealing with this location. Fast friendly service.
It was a pleasant experience from start to finish. All staff encountered that day were kind, and helpful, and knowledgeable. Keep up the good work!
Cashier needs to stop making or being on personal phone calls while with customers or while customers are waiting. This happened both the day I picked up and the day I dropped off.
Very friendly and helpful customer service!
Quick Courtious efficient checkout and check in
Jonas is a great guy. Love working with him
The Service Always Wonderful and with happy smiles to welcome you every time.
Easiest & smoothest U-Haul experience I've ever had.
Not have to install a mirror before taking the truck. Retire a truck with 178,000 miles on it that's hard starting, gear shift with lots of slack, and steering with excessive play. The truck was borderline unsafe
First class employee very helpful
This tow dolly, with a Volvo C30, is not a good combination. The low profile of the vehicle caused the vehicle to rub the straps on the inside of the wheel well. This, combined with the poor condition of Interstate 10 in Louisiana, is what prompted the need to replace the straps in Alabama.
The staff was very hit or miss. I called to confirm that I could bring my car by to get a hitch installed and wait. The person on the phone said yes! I could wait in their waiting room and it would take about an hour. When I dropped off the car they said it was going to take hours and there was no waiting area. I hadn't plan for this so I had to arrange for transportation. When I explained that this was VERY frustrating since I had called the day before to confirm. The manager said "who did you talk to" I couldn't remember... but why should it matter. When I came to get the hitch installed a new person (who was not there in the morning) said I need to purchase an additional lock for where the trailer attaches to the car (so that no one can just steal the whole locked trailer). When I came to get the trailer I explained that I needed to purchase that additional lock and the manager again said "who told you that" and explained that I didn't need it. I am grateful I didn't need to purchase something I didn't need but the staff was very inconsistent with information and that resulted me being very frustrated on multiple occasions.
nicest people i have dealt with in the uh system
Jonas was AMAZING! I have gotten used to poorly spoken people on the phone when doing business. I am delighted when on those increasingly rare instances I hear someone, anyone, who can be professional and articulate, let alone kind, on the phone. This describes Jonas to a tee! Give this gentleman a raise!
Not have calls go to a call center.
Unit available on time, Competent and friendly staff, smooth pickup and drop off process. Thanks, U-Haul!
Start customers with full tank and have customers return with a full tank. Would eliminate estimation of fuel input requirements
the service was super,when I returned the truck the office was busy,but the help at the desk was very pleasant
Customer service can definitely be improved at this location. One of the customer representatives was rude upon our first check in; we were entitled to a 24 hour rental and instead of a polite request to return the equipment earlier, we were told that we simply had to do so! She acted a bit like a bully and kept butting in during our transaction with a different customer rep by the name of Tiffany. In any confusion, let me first say that Tiffany was indeed polite and very apologetic for her counterpart's behavior. We informed the manager of the rude behavior of the customer rep and he seemed somewhat apologetic. Upon return of the equipment, we encountered the same rude customer rep again and she seemed to have a change of atttitude this time around so perhaps the manager did take our suggestion seriously. Anyone who has to rent from U-Haul already has a stressful day ahead, be it moving, transporting etc. so I would recommend going to a different location for a less stressful customer service experience. There are so many other rental locations: customers definitely have the bargaining power here!
Nothing Customer service was great except for the customer that was beening rude and loud
Issue started over an 18.00 gas charge and resulted not only the gas charge but another days rental. The gas was replaced and the truck cleaned. Only drove it 20 miles. Lori the CSR is beyond rude. Facial expressions, smirking, rolling her eyes, shrugging her shoulders. I obtained heterosexual name from another employee. I feel if I hadn't called to speak to corporate I would not have been charged another days rental. I would not recommend this location.
great people to deal with no hassle and most of all no attitudes thanks again
Mr. Jonas knows how to run this store. Thanks!
Jonas is an excellent store manager.
Tow strap on my pickup front right tire was not attached when I made my first stop.
Excellent customer service and friendly employees!!
This was the most pleasant Uhaul experience I have had!
Total misrepresentation of a fair deal. I have rented from here 3 times recently. If you return a few hours late, they charge a full extra day. One employee said they would not charge extra for a few hours, but they did anyway. Did not want insurance and was billed for it. Will never use this location again, am contacting the BBB, will blog about it, and spend hours writing reviews any place on line that is possible. Am switching to Penske. Had a similar problem with a different UHaul location this year. Done with UHAUL!
The only thing I noticed that could be improved would be for the U-Haul rep to do the walk-around on the vehicle. I was told to do it myself and missed a lock that was to be provided along with furniture pads. The lock i wasn't concerned with, but I had to travel back to the location to get the pads. Minor inconvenience, but worth a look into.
Excellent customer service. My go-to place for renting a trailer.
Previously submitted under another survey on this site.
This was the best U-Haul related experience I have ever had! Jonas is fantastic!!! He works with you to make your move a success! In this age when customer service is no longer a priority, Jonas treats you as if you are the most important customer he has ever had the opportunity to serve. His extensive knowledge of his products and his ability to work with U-Haul Central allowed us to modify our original equipment needs to provide us with exactly the right vehicle to make our move a success! He and his associate Tiffany were cordial, patience and professional. If ever I need to use U-Haul again in the Houston area, I will return to this site. No questions about it. To me it is no wonder why he has the highest ratings in the area. I give him "six stars" out of five!!!
Thanks for a pleasant transaction.
I was supposed to return the trailer at noon Sunday, but it became apparent I was going to need it for about 3 more hours. I arrived at the Uhaul office a few minutes after 12 noon and went first into the office to let them know I would need it a little longer. They said that was ok and put the return time as 4PM. Nothing was said about charging another day. When I was finished about 4:10 I went into the office to complete the paperwork, I was told I had to pay another full day because I did not return the trailer at the scheduled time of 12 noon. This was very upsetting because I was not told this when I told them I needed it a little longer, they just said no problem and that was that. I have been a customer there for about 10 years and this is the first time I have not been pleased with the service. I feel I should have been advised that a late return would involve another days charge. I think I should receive a refund, at least partial for this, I am on a budget and was carefully calculating every expense to make this move happen. The extra day charge has thrown my finances off balance and I may have charges denied or checks (rent) returned. If this happens I will find another storage place and no longer do ANY business with Uhaul.
Not charge somone for 2 days when they only had truck for 1 day.
I will never rent here again, most unprofessional staff I`ve ever done business with.
More employees!! Mr.Jonas does such a great costumer service.
Would definitely store here if needed in the future.
Mr. Jonas is the reason for me rent there at the 34th street U-haul next time. He is very Helpful. Thanks! Oh, I told my neighbor to go rent from Mr Jonas, he is moving wood.
Improve customer service - decrease wait time, have more staff working, ensure the staff speak fluent english.
The smell of the rental could have been better, it smelled of smoke and the ash tray looked like it hasn't been cleaned in months. The service was friendly but could have been more informative of the rental and prices.
The uhaul link software went down while i was there and left the staff with no way to find or complete my reservation. There should be a back up way to handle reservations if the system were to go down in the future.
Mr. Jonas is very professional. Thanks for all of his help with my U-Haul truck.
I had the best experience with this U-Haul location. I will definitely be back for any future truck / trailer rental needs.
How about telling me you're going to charge me 170 bucks BEFORE I leave the drop-ff. I left my trailer at the location I selected online but YOUR system got it wrong and now I'm stuck with the bill despite U-haul's obvious fuck up. Got some greedy dicks in corporate.
It took an hour to pick up the truck, after I did an express check in online. The truck ramp broke after it was all packed up ready to go to the storage location. The roadside said he had fixed the same truck with the same problem. U-Haul rented me a truck that was unsafe, and knew about this problem. It took 1 hour for the road side to fix and I had to pay the movers for an extra hour. It also took an hour to return the truck.
Jonas gives great service
Friendly customer service good prices
The wait was not long, I was inout in a timely manner on the day of pick up. The office staff was very helpfulexplained all my questions asked at the time of drop off also.
1 box missing latch, movers would not wait, had to hire other movers, 2nd movers took 2 days. Was not a good experience.
Did not have a good experience with u-pods, not the location but with moving helpers and false info on your web site regarding how many pods required for a three bedroom.
Thank you, all staff was helpful, profesional and friendly
I was pleased with this facility
Read the previous comments!
There is always a space for improvement. It will be highly appreciated if you keep improving and set very high standards for customer care and services.
I would have liked to keep it longer, but it was too expensive. I wish you had some smaller units on the ground floor.
They were very flexible and worked with me the months i couldnt pay them....excellent
Coming from a small, agronomy town, I was apalled. I stood in line longer than unloading my things. Replace missing bulbs in the storage! You have forgotten respect and that customer are the profit.
Very well staffed,Mr. Rodriguez was a true joy during my leasing process.........
Mr. Jonas Rodriquez and his staff were always there for us if we needed anything or had questions. I have recommended this place to friends
Jonas was very helpful and informative. Overall a pleasant and easy experience. Thanks
The staff is very friendly and helpful. I appreciate that very much.
Folks there were very accomodating and friendly.
I was very pleased with U-HUAL Mr. Jonas Rodriguez the general manager was very profesiona .
Mgr Jonas Rodriguez was unprofessional and rude. He lacks of customer service skills. He is an insult to customer service professionals in any type of business. I will never again recommend U-Haul.
The only problem I had with this place was that the ceiling tile falls all over the boxes. You`ll find reasonable prices here on W.34th Street. This is an old and run down facility but its cheap.
Service was okay, but had to wait for someone to help me, there was no one in the store. Also code didn`t work on a couple of occasions.
I am blessed to have found this place! Employees could not have more helpful to me! They were GREAT! Thank-you!
It was a wonderful experience there, everyone was very helpful and funny.
Jonas is an asset to U-haul. Jonas is pleasure to deal with.
manager nad employees always knew who i was always made me feel comfortable and at home like family thanks, so much for that experince.
you guys have great and professional !
Great friendly people and wonderful location..
Great personel, too hard to get around the storage buildings, traffic jams, and no turn arounds.
Jonas was the most friendly, helpful person at a storage area I have ever dealt with. My unit was clean and ready to receive my contents.
there was always water at the bottom of the stairway...safety hazard. Also the unit was damp. Thankfully most of my belongings were in plastic bags because the bags smelled of mold.
PERSON WHO HELPED ME OUT WAS VERY NICE AND HELP FULL I WOULD ENJOY DOING BUSINESS WITH U-HAUL AS LONG AS THERE IS ALWAYS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL IN PEOPLE THERE STAFF
all went well... just not happy I did not get a refund for time unused.
I enjoyed the hospitality and service. Thanks.
The manager was very helpful!
The manager is VERY helpful and customer service oriented. The only problem we had was the big rental truck ... it is time to put this one out to pasture!
I had a PLUS exp[erience in this rental. Definitely, I will back to use their services and I will recommend it to my friends.
overall good experience, people were nice and helpful. Area isn`t great at night.
Jonas Rodriguez is the best. He worked with me through a very difficult time in my life. His compation and commitment to the customer and their needs is superior!
EXCELLENT! People far exceed service-friendliness exp’d at any U-Haul in many moves endured. Do NOT go U-Haul on 290-Fairbanks. Brandon was so rude we chose 34th St. UHaul - exp. was complete opposite
Jonas, the Manager, is very helpful and friendly. The storage unit was very clean and dry.
To say that Jonas was a very good manager is no question, Jonas was outstanding always there to help out with any problems. Thank You Jonas
Gracias por el EXCELENTE servicio..si llego a necesitar donde meter mis cosas sin dudarlo vuelvo a elegirlos a ustedes...y por supuesto que los voy a recomendar..GRACIAS!!
I was pleased with my experience at this location. It was close to my home at the time and served well for me as an extra closet.
the guy was helpful but it was time to leave so i had to get an outside storage to coutuie to have the movers to unload
Thank you so much jonas... Appreciate ther customer service and assistance from you and your staff.... Jose
new hires need more trainging
Jonas was a true proffesional.
STAFF WAS ALWAYS HELPFUL SMILED WHEN i WAS THERE.
STAFF WAS ALWAYS HELPFUL SMILED WHEN i WAS THERE.
they failed to notify me of a leak in the building. I had water damage to my property. Now they claim i didnt close my account.
the gate was open when I arrived to put my things in storage and it remained open alll afternoon, never closed behind me or any other customer.
checking out balance $54.95 although i owed them nothing as moved out on time and not willing to give me paperwork that said zero balance. Still trying to handle with Lisa Manager at 34th Street
Jason,was a complete idiot. The door was in poor repair.I had to put in back into the track.Jason kicked a hole in the wall to demonstrate that there were no bugs.I had a horrible experience.
when i rented my first storage room they did not give me 1st month free and when i ented my 2nd storage room they gave me 1st month free you still owe me for the 1st month free on the first storge
Very friendly and helpful staff.
I have to move quickly and your staff was very helpful.
this storage facility was very clean. the staff was very helpful.and Edward was very helpful
THE STAFF ARE TRULY THE GREATEST PEOPLE I`VE MET!!!!!
Emergency long business trip to China. Left storage clean empty unlocked. Repeated emails to inform them couldn`t call were ignored but got many harassing emails from same address.
I,ll like to get my last payment prorated and credit back to me .Thank you for the service you all provided me thrugh the years
no help after a theft to my unit.
service was faster this time i did not have to wait so so long to be helped and the guy that helped me knew what he was doing this time
Friendly staff members take time to help with concerns.
Beware of nails in the driving areas.
Computer errors caused unit lockout and blocked access code.
As this was my first time renting storage space, I think things went fairly well but somethings could have been explained a little bit better. Over-all I had a very good experience. Thanks
The door to my unit is broken and needs to be fixesd.
Only complaint is the entrance gate. Code is too hard to enter into storage areas and has to have it opened by staff on 2 occasions.
The residue from the ceiling in the storage room was all over my things. There is no elevator, and no A/C in storage areas.
too long to check in, an hour and 45 minutes!
200 words is not enough space to express myself - and it really isn`t worth the time. We have removed our stuff and will never rent from UHaul again.
Daniel the manager at the facility is the high point of this location. Outstanding gentlman!!!!!
Its convient and close by my house.I just didnt like that my mother had to have a e-mail address just to rent a storage
The staff was very friendly and helpful. To be more secure, there should be an coded access gate, and it needs more lights.
I was disappointed that there wasn`t any prior information on the website describing the lack of elevator for the self-storage buildings.
The staff was very unfriendly and sarcastic. I will not recommend to anyone and after when i move again i will not use uhaul.
I have been very please with my entire experience with U-Haul. I plan on being a customer for a long time. The customer service is the best not was but still IS excellent.
staff is not expart enough to handle the computer. took long time to fix everything. charged me $179.70 over. and then they said they returened this money to my account.
