Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Moving & Storage at Ben White
I reserved a 26' truck when I went to pick it up I was told it was out of service. I was given a MUCH smaller truck and as a result I was unable to move all my items at one time and in fact still have items to move due to lack of space in the truck. I will NOW INCURR additional charges to have my remaining items moved! I was NOT given any advance notification that this truck would be unavailable and am thoroughly disgusted with U-Haul. To make matters worse, I barely used 1/4 of a tank of gas and with gas prices currently at $2.89 I was charged $18.00 for gas! I will not recommend them to ANYONE and will NOT be using their services in the future!
The service was great and the people were polite, but....U-Haul needs a facelift. Its kinda trashy looking with the ridiculous pictures on the side. Simplify! It would look better with only orange and white. Just a suggestion... Thanks!
I called and made a reservation for 2 days. The truck was ready and waiting on me. Counter staff was very friendly and fast. I've returned to this location for the last 3 years and will plan to do so in the future. Thank You!
We were very adequately treated - no problems whatsoever.
Verify the actual odometer reading prior to signing contract, as they reported the mileage as 200 miles less than what it actually was. If we had not caught it, this would have showed as if we had driven an additional 200 miles.
The staff was friendly, efficient and very helpful. The check-in and check-out was smooth and fast. It was, by far, the best U-Haul experience I've had.
The mileage charges and overages were not explained to me. Actually not much was explained to me. I blinked and was handed the keys and that was it.
Follow the green arrows to drop off your truck.
Pickup and drop off was very efficient, no issues with truck. Excellent overall.
Everything was perfect!! Thanks.
The insurance barely covered anything. It should be more inclusive.
Be more aware of how much gas is actually in the gas tank. This location always seems to claim that more gas is in the tank of outgoing trucks than is actually there.
Only 1 person at front desk and 7 people in line. Was a frustrating 20 min wait time.
Manager @ this location was great.
Great facility. Great employees.
The employee who helped me was very nice, efficient and fast. She took into account we were obviously stressed and made it as easy as possible. I even almost drove off without my dolly and she ran out to stop me. Best experience I've had so far!
very efficiant and friendly
The rental cost was higher for this size trailer than last time I rented here.
i have had so much trouble with this process. the move from NJ to TX went very smoothly, but the move from TX to NY is a nightmare. i have spent over 2 hrs on the phone trying to schedule the move, and got disconnected 5 times, causing me to have to start over - re-explaining the situation - each time. also, i selected a drop off facility from your website and am now being told it can'g go there. it's been a headache from beginning to end. my call just got cut off for the 5th time - and i'm giving up trying to speak to someone on the phone.
the door on one box did not close properly and caused much difficulty when trying to access my belongings inside.
Customer service was excellent.the young lady was quick and pleasant and did her job well. Check out a few hours later was just as smooth.thank you
When I showed up to pick up my trailer the first time, they did not have it because the last customer had not brought it back yet. I already had to drive past another uhaul to get to this one because they did not have a motorcycle trailer themselves so it was a bit frustrating that I had to drive home empty handed and change my plans to pick it up the next day. When I got there the second day, the trailer was there. I signed my papers and went out back with my car to get hooked up. The associate there did not say a word but just waived his arm for me to back in to the trailer. Then the wire harness was broken so he had to replace it. It was replaced and I was out of there. All in all, the employee just seemed bothered that I was picking up a trailer.
The windshield of the uhaul was cracked, and when I went to notify the guy who checked us out I had to wait in another long line rather than have him recognize that I just payed and needed to be on my way.
I toldthe guy I wanted all hour access and he said OK but never gave it to me
Dude fixed a wiring problem on my truck tow harness for free! Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to tow the rental trailer. Great service! 5 stars.
Clean out trailers of debris to prevent flying out when in motion.
I use many storage units yearly. This facility has an outstanding super helpful staff. I vote them one of the best businesses ever! Great job manager Jesse! Best U-Haul 2014!
The staff looked bored. Not really friendly at all so that all can be improved.
Josh is great - helpful, professional and friendly.
Call make resveration during day next day I pick it up but not there waiting someone stop trailer with ramp I was little upset but they offer larger trailer same price I take it thank you
I liked the Ben White location. Jason and the young lady were very nice and professional.
Management should be more contentious about customer service. They had a long line and offered no help clearing the backlog of customers.
Nothing, absolutely an outstanding experience. I will be back if needed. Thank You for making it easy.
Better line/queue management. Early morning a single line filed for two registers and additional customers came in and began a second line to the furthest registercusing myself and the customer line before me to get serviced well out of order for walkins
Things were very smooth, I don't have any suggestions for improvement.
The employees were friendly and patient.
Service was quick and courteous.
The cargo van was well maintained, but the exterior was not clean. Fortunately, that was not important to me, but a cleaner rental vehicle is better advertising!
The staff was very accommodating. Thanks for a very positive U-Haul experience.
the fellow that worked with me to the guys that checked me in were great. very good customer experience.
Nice young gal took care of me. Painless experience !
Thanks. Always use you guys
easy. convenient. friendly staff.
I did the 24 hr drop off and called the next morning and everything was in order.
I was given 40$ back for the trouble the truck gave me. Didn't expect it, it was a nice gesture! I believe in a one way move the pick up location gives you their worst truck because it's not returning.
N/A.This was my first ever experience with U-Haul and Michele you made it a GREAT Experience, thank you very much for your patience with me and wonderful customer service.
Customer service was great
Over all customer service was very nice and professional.
Property well kept and maintained.
However, explanation on charges and uses need to be more defined. I personally was under the impression when they asked for estimated milage use for the day, that I was able to use the vehicle up to that milage and anything after that usage I would be charged .79 cents a mile.
I did not know I was going to be charge per mile as soon as I drove off.
A mistake on my behalf for not asking more questions but insufficient training on the representative side for not
explaining it more in detail.
And on the return doc at the
ben white location in Austin
Texas, that guy ( no name)
was rude and unprofessional.
Spoke to me like I was slower than
a snail going down hill.
I do appreciate your services and clean vehicles.
The reservation was put in the system wrong. I had to go to another location to pick up the truck... Then back to Ben white location to pick up the car trailer... Then back to the previous location to load up my car then all the way back to south Austin. It took over three hours with the back and forth. The staff was not helpful. They did not give me a tour of the truck, rather, they just gave me the keys and sent me on my way. I would not recommend this location.
Go over where to drop off truck.
The facility is well maintained however very frustrated w/ repeated rent increases. We found a larger storage unit w/ more convenient access hours significantly lower rent.
Employees are patient, explained everything and were courteous.
I would loove if there was an option to have a CD player or USB hook up so I could play music off my phone.
The facility was well maintained. The trailer I rented was in very good condition and quite clean. The employees were very friendly and made sure we were well-equipped for our move.
I had dropped of my trailer after hours, and when calling the next morning to ensure it was received the employee was very helpful and answered all of my questions. Overall a very nice experience.
Very efficient, especially the trailer hook up & return. Thank you!
I returned my truck with the gage right on where it was when I received it and they said that I was at the line below it. Very inconsistant. Also the mileage on the vehicle was rounded down when it was released but when it was returned the mileage was read as is or rounded up can't remember which way it was done. Customer service wasn't bad just wish I would have been shown where the night key drop was located so I did not have to walk around the complex trying to find it.
No problems with delivery of van at this location.
After online reservation, Uhaul sends a boilerplate email saying customer needs to go to rental center to verify vehicle tow capabilities. I went in to do this, even though the vehicle was more than adequate to tow the small 5x8 trailer. Several other people wasted time and gas coming in before the rental date. This needs to be changed!
Great experience the only thing is I wish the parking lot was a little bigger. I forgot to purchase an adapter for the lights on the trailer and unfortunately the trailer was already attached so my truck blocked the entire equipment entrance while I bought my adapter.
Make sure the trucks do not have any leaks. My U-Haul truck had a leak in the roof so some of my boxes were damaged from the rain getting inside the truck after I loaded it.
I ordered a moving mid size truck and dolly and when I got to the location they did not have what I ordered available. They said that I had ordered a van and did not order a dolly, which was not the case. In the end I ended up having to "take" a much larger truck and utility dolly. This is the third time I've used this Uhal company location and every time there's been some kind of issue, including being over charged! Very disappointed.
The truck had not been washed in some time. I am not talking about the standard dust coating that all vehicles get in Austin, the truck was dirty.
The month after I rented the storage for 3 months, the rate was raised. I felt cheated since that was not revealed at rental time... seemed fishy like it was targeted at college students.
arrows on drive were a little confusing. wasnt sure where to enter to actually do the rental
Until the very end When a person in Black Uniform unhooked the trailer from my car I did not like his attitude he just left the light cord hanging instead of placing it into the trunk of car
Very busy place, and maybe the staff is not familiar with pods on regular basis. The customer service was different every time, some reps were more helpful [and more thorough] than others. Depending on person, the information changed slightly, or they left considerable gaps in what was shared. It felt like they were not certain of answer and would ask others at the counter, and no one else was certain either. Seems like there should be more consistency in the information on pod usage and all of the associated costs without having to continually ask others at counter with less than certain answers.
Pay attention and explain the procedure better. I had to ask way too many questions and she was not very communicative.
They were great! Fair , prompt and professional!!!
The person checking us in actually stopped what he was doing to come and assist. Very friendly. Made the check in process pleasant, easy, and quick.
Very quick to assist in checking in equipment. Friendly and courteous.
Be sure the man behind the counter is more pleasant. He spoke so fast I couldn't understand him. I'm sure the statements seem rote to him but not the customers. He seemed like he was in a hurry or didn't want to deal with me. The 3 ladies there were too busy chatting together and looking at something on their phones. Maybe that is why the man was put off. The team should be more professional when dealing with customers.
You can't give a damaged equipment and ask the customer to be happy about it.
Everyone was friendly and helpful, even asking me if I'd rather have a truck with cupholders! I'd gladly go back for future moves, thanks for the great experience!
Everyone was great....excellent customer service and an easy website to reserve vehicle!!!
The woman who checked me out was full of attitude. The trucks ignition was faulty took several minutes to get it started, several times. Door handle was taped up because it was broken. When I came back within 30 minutes to exchanged she had even more attitude, no apologies for inconvenience, no eye contact, little if no talking, exchanged to another one. Second one's visors where falling out of the ceiling and had the check engine light on the whole time.
Trailer was not checked out. Brake lights did not work the entire trip from Austin, Tx., to Colorado. Brakes locked up after loading and a service person had to come and repair the brakes. 50 miles down the road the ball that u-haul sold me and put on the trailer hitch came loose. it was a Sunday and we were helpless. I found a Lowes store and purchased a pipe wrench to attache and tighten the nut on the ball. No matter how we adjusted the load trailer swayed at over 50 MPH. No more U-Haul. Great story for the internet.
The time spent waiting in line at the customer service counter was longer than I would have liked.
this location had a check-in person outside where i returned the truck. It was as simple as returning a Hertz rental car. A very good experience.
The seat belt was broken and the A/C went out during 100 degree weather.
Let the people out back know to be a bit more personable, it's ok to speak while we are hooking up the trailer and such.
you should have lighting harness adapters available at no cost or a low rental instead of forcing customers to buy a $15 adapter for a one-time use. that was the only thing that rubbed me the wrong way with this transaction. Staff and equipment were great.
Tell customer service reps to be more friendly. Stop hiding fees in your pricing!! It sucks to see $19/rental turn into $100 for a really basic movie
Michael, the person in charge, salvaged a very poor experience and made it right.
kudos to him!
My experience involved online, phone and in store elements. I have said to numerous people that it is hard to believe that UHaul makes any money if my experience is typical. At every stage of my transaction, beginning with general questions a month in advance, getting useful and complete information was like pulling teeth. I started every conversation by saying that I'd never pulled a trailer before, and I didn't know anyone who had.. But if I hadn't researched online, then I would have shown up on the day of departure without a hitch. . . Because my car is a 2001 RAV4, the hitch would not have been in stock, and I wouldn't have been able to start my cross country journey! That would have fouled me up in so many ways I wouldn't know where to begin. I will say that whenever I complained the response was courteous and useful. I got discounts, and even a small piece of equipment; I did not leave as an angry customer, just disappointed.
You need to review your handling of new customers, and work on making sure they get all the information they need. Then test your employees, and make sure that, despite the pressure they come under, they always make sure the customer is fully informed.
Staff not overly friendly just going through the prices on auto pilot
These guys had me checked out befor I could get out of the truck
Hire more responsible / qualified people
Very professional, yet friendly & easy to work with. I had to switch my reservation for a 14' truck 3 times because the condo I purchased did not close on time. These folks made each change as though their job was to assist me. I also returned boxes I did not need (I grossly overestimated the # of boxes I would need). Again, they counted to boxes, gave me a credit, and put them back into stock.
Bottom line is these folks are top-notch!!!
First off you need to let the girl know what the difference is between a utility trailer and a enclosed trailer.I called the location on s.Congress in Austin to set a reservation up to pick upon Friday..I arrive Friday morning and come to find out it is a enclosed 6x12 I am a contractor that doesn't get paid by the hr. and I'm the one who has to pay my employees by the hr.So she sent me over to the Ben white location..We got the trailer hooked up but my turn signals on the trailer wernt working so the trailer loader guy said no problem I will check this out with my tester. And started testing the wires the fuses and going back and forth from the fuses to the wires..Look the guy was a nice enough but after one and half hrs. of this we wernt getting know were and the day was getting older and I was getting poorer by the hr.I said enough is enough I went and got a pigtail with connectors from your store and fixed it my self in 15 min. Now why dint that trailer boy do that.. Your tell me something after 20 min. of screwing with it.So later on in the day I call up there and say that it looks like Iam going to be dropping the trailer off in Smithville TX because we dint make it to the dump (Because u haul put me 2.5 hrs. behind)Just saying that is a fact.. so I was verifying that cost which I had asked the girl on Thursday and she said 60.00 dollars more to do that OK fine.Well when I was talking to the very young inexperienced girl at the Ben whit location she said it would be 162.00 extra to drop it off in Smitville TX.So I go back and forth with her she puts me on hold I wait for the Manager and at this point I have been on the phone for 15 min.I hang up.I ended driving a extra 120 miles and had to get the dam trailer back at 930 am. or I was getting charged.Let me tell you people who work for u haul I have rented many different construction stuff over the years to get the job done and after this I WILL NEVER GIVE YOU PEOPLE MY BUSINESS and I will tell every body about this(Your not the only rental company around)..
Don't limit the same day rental to only four hours. Especially in a city that has traffic issues like Austin, Texas. Some people spend more than four hours in a day sitting on the toilet.
I am no expert on what fits in what size van or trailer (we rented a trailer). I dont expect the sales people to know what size fits what but a general idea would be greatful. This is what they do for a living. Also when training a new hire, it is helpful to do it when it is not so busy. We were able to escape the line but there was a line out the door when we went back inside to pick up an item we forgot. Also there should have been a receipt for any additional charges or a phone call. This was my first time renting from here and it wasnt a great experience. The person who took the quote repeated it back correctly but entered it wrong. Very frustrating.
The staff was very helpful.
I was helped very quickly, by one of the guys processing returned trucks, in spite of the fact that I arrived very early, well before the office was to open.
Nothing just keep being friendly
Need more front desk people at 5p on a Friday, other than that, the customer service was great.
Truck had squealing breaks, very poor suspension and unacceptable mpg.
Despite a high volume of customer the staff was professional, efficient and patient dealing with me as well as one particular disgruntled customer.
Better communication on the return process. I was expected to know what to do instead of being directed thru to activity. There was a discrepancies in the fuel reading on it was handled professionaly and politely to my satisfaction.
I requested Riverside location and was surprised to have to go to Ben White. Riverside was 1 mile from my daughters apartment and on the way as we were traveling from Houston. SO it cost me 30 extra minutes to pick it up.
A 4:00 pm , I had to fight heavy traffic and then wait in the street because the location was packed with vehicles including a semi truck unloading. The travel time for me increased at 20 minutes and then I had to wait 25 minutes in 102 F to unhook a trailer. I was not happy with your service. The equipment was just fine.
In and out! Great service!
There was a long line for pickup, even with a reservation and pre check in.
Charge the correct amounts upon dropoff. Have a sign or have employees that directs returns to the proper area so clients don't wait in line for 30 min to be told to go to the back for dropoff. Was very frustrating that returning a refueled vehicle took 60min. Again, make sure the charges are correct on the bill. Had to go back in line to get charges corrected.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. 2 times I asked 24 hr before for box to be out by certain time and both times it never was ready
The Uhaul facility was very well maintained. The staff was always helpful. The location was also convenient to our daughters college. We will definitely use the facility again.
The staff was pleasant and efficient. Tons of inventory. I had to change my pick up date 5 days prior and was worried they would not have the size I needed. It was not a problem. Also parking my car at th site was convenient. Been to other locations and you were not about to do that. Will use them again.
Picking a time at this location would have been a little helpful. We'd planned on moving in the morning and the truck was available at noon instead. Regardless, we knew to keep our schedule open so it was no problem.
We appreciated the level of service from the employees at this location.
Very easy to return the vehicle with no hassles.
The staff at this location has always been extremely helpful and focused on customer service. I will continue to come to this location and recommend it to friends.
When I dropped off my uhaul I was told I had a $30 charge for a wrong location drop off and the fee was for the time to take it to the correct location. Uhaul's time is worth money, but my time apparently is not.
I had to check my own truck to make sure there was nothing wrong with it! He didn't walk it with me.
I told the owner the one that helped me get the truck that I wanted all day! He gave me 7 hours.
The check engine light was on in the truck!
Just dropped the truck and keys off when they were closed.
The staff was very professional and helpful. Thank you for your services.
The equipment was in good condition and the people were all very helpful. I would use U-Haul again.
The driver's side mirror was loose and kept falling so all I could see was the road or the side of the truck. This made changing lanes complicated and frankly dangerous.
Over charged - charged for 2 days - only had truck 1 day. After 20 mins on hold and being transferred to 4 different people changes were finally reversed and credited back. Should not have taken speaking with multiple managers to get this money back in my account.
If I bring my equipment back early, I'd appreciate at lease a partial refund of the original cost of rental.
I received 2 separate notices for pickup giving 2 separate pick up locations. When I finally arrived at the correct location I was told they had me scheduled for a 12:00 pickup. 2 days before that I received a call and told them I would be there at 8:00. Jason was very good about getting the box ready, but the rest of the staff were unhelpful and unwilling to help. The box arrived a day late covered in ants.
Easy after-hours drop off.
Ryan did a great job taking the reservation. Service was fast both on the renting side and returning the truck.
Nice, large, clean location. I was very pleased with the assistance I received there. My only observation was that both times I was in the office they were extremely busy and I had to wait a while to be helped. I don't know if it's always this way, but other than that my rental experience was fine.
Trailer had a broken chain that wasn't noticed, equipment panel cracked overall not in great condition and condition wasn't noticed or marked on rental. I could have been charged for "damage" if I didn't elect optional protection. Otherwise ok experience.
I was very happy with the service. Thank you!
Ya'll made our moving experience go all the more easy. Thank You.
Not quite as personable as my Colorado peeps but were just as efficient.
Explain Well to new customers how everything works. Even though customers do not ask questions.
the customer service is a tad slow. Other than that, the employees were friendly and knowledgeable.
Always so clean in the building
Very good all around experience.
Always to my rent/returns here when can. Always top notch service.
The truck was clean and easy to drive. They did not have the dolly that I had reserved, but found some that I could use after looking for a bit, which was a relief. Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience here. Thanks!
customer service was poor
My moving helpers booked thru Uhaul drove the truck for me, and they took it back, turned it in without refueling bc the one guy was in a huge rush to get to his next move. I showed up shortly after, asked the representative if I needed to do anything else, he told me no, they'd checked the truck in out back, had the keys, and didn't need anything else from me. Then an additional $70 was charged to my card for 14 gallons of gas and $30 refueling penalty. I'm on a very tight budget with this move, I don't recall the rep saying anything about refueling when I got there that morning to sign the contract and meet the helpers, but even if he did and it slipped my mind, I do not appreciate being charged a penalty when I was there, and could have taken the truck and refueled it if anyone had brought it to my attention that it needed to be done.
There is a small cute young woman who works at this location. She has helped us previously as well as on this visit. Not only is she very fast and efficient, her general competence and friendliness is really refreshing. She is a credit to your company. As far as improving things at this location, the only problem is that the after hours return area is much too small and short. Both times I have come back with a truck I have had to go around the building and back the truck into the front of the line in order to be anywhere near the turn-in area and key drop.
Wanted a regular utility dolly, none available. was given a appliance dolly, which is a good gesture, and a much bigger dolly. But it was overkill for what we needed. This location was way better than another one we tried. Employees were nice to customers, but kind of snarky with each other.
Everything was pretty good. If anything, maybe have better parking for customers that leave their cars.
The store in Bryan/College Station did not have the unit I reserved. I had prior reservations & when I arrived was told I had been double booked and there was nothing there for me & wound not help locate another one near by. I was told that when I reached my destination I could try one of the uhaul places there for my trailer rental. VERY UNHAPPY WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE. besides this I had to wait in line while on crutches for 30 minutes, only one person in a busy office. I will not be recommending this location to anyone. The Austin location is 100% recommendable. They worked hard to have me out and with a trailer within 15 minutes. Highly recommend them.
Everything ok with exception of some staff that was not very helpful, and did not pay attention to what I was saying. front desk surely needs improvement.
This is 6th time to rent here. I'll be back.
Very friendly staff. I was late returning and they were very nice and accommodating
Highly professional sales lady
Si me gusto el servicio es rápido y la amabilidad del vendedor es exelente
Fire everyone except for Angel, Anthony, and Krystal.
it was an old trailer but worked just fine, and the staff was very helpful and it all worked out great! will work with you guys again!
I originally booked this reservation at another location. U-Haul changed on me, which ended up costing me more money because the new location was further away. Because you all charge by the mile, I wasn't too excited about the change. :(
Ben White location was less busy and more efficient than any other Austin Uhaul I've used in 3 years of moving
Ben White location was poorly managed. We waited 3 hours. Line of people out the door, none were helped for over an hour.
When you say your not going to charge me extra.. Don't charge me extra.next time I'm going to budget.
In the past, this location has been horrible. When I saw it was the closest location for what I needed, I was bracing for the worst. When I arrived, the manager, Ryan greeted me. The staff was friendly and efficient. I wad in and out for the pick up in about 15 minutes. Drop off was also very good. Clean cut and nice gentleman speed what he was doing to check me in. What a change. Well done.
The gentleman who checked in the truck was friendly and helpful. I didn't go inside the facility.
Thanks for making this experience easy!
The customer service rep should have reminded us to buy a combo lock. We would have bought one at the counter! She did offer other items but the lock was what we later had to go and buy.
The truck was great and everything went well. Two issues I had. 1-the zip tie attaching the the dolly to the truck was completely useless and broke in transit. I noted this and was not charged, but uhaul needs to invest in some metal zip ties if they are the sole basis for determining whether the customer used the dolly or not. 2- the gas tank was at half a tank when I picked it up. When I tried to gas it up at the end, the needle stuck. I drove around and tried stopping and starting the truck, but it would not move from 1/4 tank. I added $20 more, started it, and sure enough, it jumped to 3/4 of a tank. I was not credited for over filling it which is ridiculous considering that if it had been below half, I certainly would have been charged. As I see it, uhaul owed me a refund for over filling the tank.
What great service! I am so pleased with the quality of service provided by these friendly, cheerful and polite folks at your Ben White store. The van I rented was new and clean and a pleasure to drive. When I returned it, the young man was so courteous. He stopped what he was doing to help me. Thank all of them for the great service.
The storage facility had many unlisted fees. Needing to use my own circular lock, not listing that unit was not climate controlled, no elevator to second floor, insurance required. Will not recommend.
You gave me a trailer with 3 dry rotted tires. I tried to to call to demand my money back but the rude associate I spoke with would not let me speak the manager. Who is in charge of inspecting trucks and trailers needs to be terminated immediately. I spent 5-6 hours on the side of the road with 2 blow-outs on a trailer. I reserved the trailer a week ahead so this was not a surprise trip. I feel you jeapordized my safety and the second roadside trip the tech. changed an additional tire because he said it was dangerously close to blowing out like the previous two. I have thought about pursuing further action, due to U-Haul providing me a trailer that was completely unsafe.
My receipt(what I was charged) does not match the contract given to me or the contract as shown online when I placed the order.
My subtotal should have been:
$29.95 - rental rate
$16.04 - mileage
$14.00 - safemove insurance (NOT Plus)
$11.50 - gas
$10.00 - furniture pads (12 pads at $5 for 6 pads)
dolly - I didn't order or need one.
$1 - environmental fee
Subtotal = $82.49
But I was charged a subtotal of $134.94.
tHEY WENT OVER AND ABOVE WITH THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE. THE MAN THAT HOOKED UP THE UHAUL WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL.
This place was great - extremely quick, no nonsense, but very welcoming. Thanks for a great return
We really appreciate the prompt check out of the truck we rented. It was very clean and your staff was excellent.
The pricing did not match the online rate I booked. The fuel surcharge / credit is confusing, and prevents apples-to-apples comparisons with other truck rental companies. I also filled up gas to 1/4 tank but the check-in clerk disagreed, so I lost out on a $21 credit. Overall, I found the experience painful and confusing. I will go out of my way to not use U-Haul in the future and talk any friends out of using it in favor of a local company. Cheers.
Very well run with good customer service.
Service was perfect. Quick, professional. I was done in a matter of minutes.
Long lines. I was coldly told I had no reservation and no trucks available... Turned put my name was misspelled, but its dramatic to hear that.
This location was not as helpful when we picked up the first trailer but they were fine for drop off.
The agent in Oise City Ok stayed late so we could make the drop off there.
Our van was reserved in advance and once we arrived, was unavailable. Someone should handle and check reservations and follow up when there are issues to ensure customers do not waste their time and efforts during an already stressful move.
The after hours drop off was simple and easy at this location
Very friendly and helpful staff. I reserved a 17-foot truck and auto transport, and I felt prepared for my big move.
Your direct personnel as it related to the U box were excellent!!! however, the moving helper assign to me was very disappointing.!!!!!!(;
great service, efficient and friendly. i'll be back
Very efficient.and helpful.
Really impressed with the staff and vehicles. Definitely will be renting a van for my daughters move next month. Keep up the good work.
Never using Uhaul again. 1 my storage unit was reserved wrong 2 my phone number was entered wrong 3 when I went to go pick up my truck...it wasn`t there.
This location is always very helpful and attentive to our needs. We typically rent up to 3x a week with this location and it's always great.
I rented a truck during the busiest moving weekend of the year (the weekend before aug 1st), the equipment was great as always, customer service pleasant as usual... The only thing that did not make sense was the ill preparation on uhaul's part for this very busy weekend. There was only one person attending the desk/check out while a line of 50 people waited longer than 2 hours!... The facility has 4 check out points if I'm not mistaken, perhaps better management could put/hire more employees during the busy season... I have always relied on uhaul before but this is the first time i will search for alternative/ not so popular moving trucks next time because I believe other places can offer much less waiting time at check out.
I was overcharged. I was told I would be immediately refunded $42.57 on 7/28 and it is still yet to be refunded to my account.
24 hour rental was specified during the time of rental. I was charged for two days of service when we returned the rental after 23 hours. In speaking to the rep, she was giving me attitude and mentioned how it "wasn't her problem we didn't read the contract". We were refunded luckily (3-5 business days) but then charged for 1 day of service. Pending on my card are 3 days of service, two of which will drop off. The whole time, she was speaking to me in a condescending manner, and then threw my paperwork and pen at me. I mentioned it wasn't her fault, but her tone and attitude did not fluctuate. Believe me, I will take my business to Penske next time for this inane representative's service. I'm in need of a truck August 28th, and it won't be with U-Haul.
the utility trailer just had a some old concrete in the bed but the whole rental process was efficient and staff was attentive.
I've always went to Uhaul for my moving needs. They offer great service and trucks are nice and clean, also they beat the prices that other rental companies charge. Highly recommended
The store is messy and is understaffed. The waiting line was long and I have seen many potential customers leaving due to having to stay too long waiting in line. Other than that, all went fine. The equipment I was assigned to was new so I am happy from that standpoint.
Site was over-crowded with trucks/cars, etc and line was very long to check out - not enough front desk people.
Don't change the size of the truck. I ordered a 17' and a 17' truck was confirmed, then when I got there I was given a 28' truck, that was way too big for driving around Austin.
I wanted a print out or confirmation that I was not charged for the equipment I was never given but I did not have that option. There should be some sort of sign off when equipment is turned in. You just have to take their word that everything is okay won't get a charge later. That is not right.
The wait time was a little long in the morning for check in. However, dropping off the truck was smooth sailing with the 2 Hispanic gentleman in the back. Very professional and friendly.
Representative was not in a happy mood, stressed out, wanted to hurry the process. The UHaul had no gas once we received it. The UHaul had no dollie. They almost charged us extra for it. Previous worker forgot to put a green tag on the dollie hinge.
Too impersonal and far more just take it or leave it attitude of the staff
Holy fuck, I don't have time to write a business plan.
Great Service. Nice People.
You provide excellent service. Your staff is very friendly and
helpful. Keep up the good work.
I did not use the doly and I was charged for it.
I reserved my truck in advance, but still had to wait in line nearly 30 minutes because only one person was working at the counter and answering phones.
Everything worked out fine in the end, but the girl checking me in wasn't very helpful. She took a long time to check me in and wasn't telling me why it was taking so long (from context of the talk between her and coworkers, it seems like they were worried about not having a 6x12 available). After about 10 minutes everything was ready, but during that time she didn't say a word to me and often needed manager's assistance on her computer. The GM was very nice and answered all of my questions quickly and got me back on the road.
The woman who rented us the vehicle and trailer on July 2nd was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. She was patient and listened to all questions we had. Overall, an amazing experience.
They were fast and great.
1) Don't confuse the pickup time - the Uhaul employee who called me said they had me down for a noon pickup when I made the reservation to pick up at 9am (early enough to meet a moving crew at my house later in the day). Then when she changed it to the right time, she got the day wrong....
2) Don't change the location of the pickup - I ended up going to a completely different place to get my truck, and then the reservation was never cancelled at the original pickup location.
3) Make sure ALL of your employees know which equipment can haul which trailers/pods. There seems to be confusion about whether an 8' pickup truck can haul two loaded pods, so my reservations kept switching between an 8' and 14' truck. Thankfully, the Uhaul employee I talked to yesterday (Sabrina) gave me the rate of the 8' truck even though I had a 14' truck, because of all of the confusion. The people in the call center have different information from store employees.
4) My truck was shaking and sputtering on the way back to the Uhaul location - I don't know if it was because of the loaded pods I had on the back or not, but it might be good to have someone check that out.
5) The current system seems to have one reservation for each piece of equipment, which caused a LOT of confusion - I needed a truck, a trailer, and two pods, and had to explain to every person I talked to that those things were all supposed to be ready to go when I arrived at Uhaul.
6) Please mention somewhere on the website that Uhaul doesn't do shipping of Uboxes on the weekend. I planned on a week of shipping time, because that's what Uhaul guaranteed on the website, but apparently I may have to wait a few extra days to actually pick up my boxes. This means adding extra nights in a hotel to an already-expensive cross-country move. So, despite doing a lot of planning to make sure this didn't happen, this absence of information caused me to incur a lot of extra costs.
Overall, this has been the worst moving experience I've had with Uhaul. I've rented trucks for in-town moves in the past and have had no problems, but this time it seems like everything went wrong. Coordinating details for a cross-country move shouldn't be this difficult - I planned this weeks ago and ended up with a bunch of trouble on the day before and the day of my move. And for the price of renting and shipping the pods, I would expect things to run a little more smoothly. It seems like Uhaul's system doesn't work that well for moves where you're not just renting a truck for a day. I definitely won't be recommending Uboxes to anyone else - I thought they would be convenient, but they are turning into a huge headache.
Nothing, this location was flawless and easy to find/maneuver around.
We are very pleased not only with the rental today but the inventory you have in boxes, the program you have to share, etc. We simply love you! Thank you, everyone and Tony, she was great this morning!
The unit I was assigned was damaged and I notified the employee who helped me. Additionally, the parking situation is horrible and needs to be looked at. Very dangerous. There is no where to park.
The information sheet that show all the costs of repairing scratches to decals, etc, and which was intended to get me to buy a damage waiver was offensive to me. It seemed like you were trying to intimidate me as part of your sales pitch to get me to buy this high margin product from U-Haul. Next time I will go to Budget first.
Is there a web option to pre-enter all the basic stuff and thus speed-up the process at the counter? The terminals where you make selections are a step in the right direction, but the clerks are always having to answer phones and who knows what else, and the rental experience seems a little slow as a result.
Inflate the tires to approp levels...only had 20 lbs...needed 65 lbs. Glad I checked or it would have gone flat on a 359 mile trip.
There was a long wait, possibly having a third representative at the counters could help
There was a long wait-only 2 personnel people for a line of about 6 people.
Service was beyond slow! A few people even got out of line and walked out of the store, and there was still a long wait. We reserved online so when we finally go to the counter our check-out process was quicker than those before us. Then the day we returned the U-haul, no one had explained the return process, so we stood in line for 40 minutes. When we got to the counter we were simply told to "park it out back." When we parked it, the gentleman outside, Patrick, who took our keys, was not friendly and seemed irritated when we asked if there was anything else we had to do for the return process. He asked: "Well did you break it?" Then walked away from us. Poor customer service all around.
The inspection of the trailer was out of date and I was pulled over for it. That is completely ridiculous.
I reserved a 10' truck that was supposed to be at a different location. I ended up with a 14' truck on a take it or leave it basis. The wait in line to pick up the truck was 45 minutes. The fault is not so much the store as the routing system from your website. It's almost a bait and switch operation.
Really fast service picking up and dropping off. Will definitely recommend to anyone. Thanks.
During weekend more help inside store to get customers moving in and out quickly. Long lines :(.
Guys were friendly trailer was in bad condition, and the lights stopped working half way through my 1200 mile trip.
It was easy to make a reservation on line. The truck was ready, clean and full of gas. I returned it before closing time and was greeted by helpful employees.
The man who helped us was very professional. We felt very comfortable and immediately knew he knew exactly what he was doing. Also, the return of the truck was very efficient.
It was a very smooth experience.
First truck I picked up had severe vibrating and knocking noise. I took it back and received a different truck. That one seemed to have some type of engine or transmission problems because it was consistently lunging as if it was going to die out. I made do and completed the move, but the truck (both actually) were major POS'. The staff at the center were not friendly and on the verge of being rude, especially the female (don't remember her name). Upon return I was told I was going to be charged $25 for not folding the blankets. No other rental company I've used has done this. Fortunately another return agent said if I folded the blankets, I wouldn't be charged. So my girlfriend and I spent 10 minutes folding blankets. The return agent on my truck said folding the blankets is in the contract. Well so is providing me a decent truck so you guys failed big time on that. I will never use Uhaul again and I will go out of my way to give your company and that location bad marks on every social media program that I use. I will go back to using Penske again for truck rental needs. Uhaul needs to take some lessons from them.
The staff here instantly made us feel welcome in our new city!
A more friendly and inviting staff. No smiles and no appreciation for my rental.
The line was short on Tuesday. The gal at the counter was friendly. The guy at the equipment return was friendly. The handheld checkout was convenient. The only thing is that it is that the parking lot vehicle flow is a bit odd. If coming from the West, via Woodbury, one comes into the parking lot in the wrong direction. Moreover, the trucks are facing East, which is against the arrow painted on the parking lot. If one comes in from the East, via Ben White, everything is fine, until renting and backing up a truck, against the traffic flow. It's not a big deal, but you might want to know. Thanks.
Everything was pretty good so I don't really have any ideas on how to improve
The truck didn't appear to be checked at all before i picked it up. Rear differential was making a loud whining noise. The store is usually always under staffed. I will say however the women that checked me out was very nice and helpful.
Very good customer service and fast!!!
Have used this location before. Always prompt, convenient location, and reasonable prices.
Extremely busy and chaotic in the drop of area.
How about giving a discount if the customer returns the vehicle early and with more gas than the truck originally had? It's a ripoff to not give a discount.
Good job overall. Wasn't clear that trucks come with a bag of blankets and a dolly. I'm guessing that if you break the seals you get charged for something you might not have wanted. Should make that clear, but otherwise a good business.
Not much to add, very good experience. Everyone was courteous and knowledgeable. Appreciate good customer service. Nice job guys and gals! Thanks!
I had reservation for a trailer at the south slaughter and I-35 location. However upon arrival I was told that they didn't have a trailer for me and that I needed to go to a north location. This was unacceptable. Luckily the Ben white location had a trailer and I went there instead.
Truck had check engine light but still performed well. Could use extra help at counter to assist customers. I waited 20 minutes just to get the truck I reserved and was 4th in line.
Three times my reservation got confirmed and all three times I had to correct the information. There was no record of me reserving the packing blankets or the dolly and when I showed up to pick up the truck there was not enough packing blankets. Very frustrating. The employees were courteous though.
Ya did a GOOD JOB ABD THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT!
The directional signs for return are difficult to figure out.
Nothing really, checking in was fast as was returning the vehicle. Everything from beginning to end went very smoothly and fast.
Brandi was awesome and helped us before, during, and after our rental. Very highly recommended. Thanks!
The rate of in town of .75 cents a mile is high. Better rates would in courage me to rent a truck more often.
The customer service person I spoke to (I believe was not in the Austin location but at a call center) was extremely rude to me for no reason at all. Calling me stupid and laughing at me because I wasn't sure what name was on the account (mine, my moms, or the drivers). My mom said it up so I wasnt sure. He was a jerk about it.
The line to pick up for a RESERVATION was an hour long. The reservation comes with a guarantee that the reservation will be honored and that should include the time of the reservation. This location should not irresponsibility commit to more reservations than it can reasonably service on time. This location's lack of respect for my reservation cost me time, money and personal difficultly. I do not plan to use this location again and I have cautioned others against using this location if they cannot risk waiting in line for extended amounts of time.
I did not get a contract for the trailer, nor did we examine it prior to putting the car on.
Wow! This place was GREAT! Quick and professional service. Took less then 5 minutes to drop the truck off and get my copies of the contract. Doesn't get better then that!
This place is probably the busiest location in Austin and the folks here are doing a great job. Don't know what you can do at the store but maybe having a separate line for the online registration/express.
Very friendly staff and very easy procedure.
The truck was clean, but, the windshield wipers and radio did not consistently work. Are they connected somehow? Had to pull over and call roadside assistance. After sitting awhile, they decided to work. I made it to my destination okay, just a little later than planned. Had to return the truck to a location that put me over my mileage allowance instead of returning it to a place just blocks from where we finished. They waived the extra mileage charge due to the wiper issue. Overall, okay experience. Rented a 16 foot truck, used a little more than half a tank, cost $70 to top off tank before returning with gas at $3.29/gallon.
Helpful and friendly staff.
This was a great experience. The staff is professional. The place is clean. We would highly recommend this U-Haul.
I arrived early for my rental and the attendant assisted me with my hook up and got me on my way. Thank you
Uhaul should actually teach their employees to use the Uhaul system. Call service center employees are extremely rude. Employees do not explain payment and are rude when asked to specify. Overall terrible experience and I hope to never go back to there or any other Uhaul again.
When making my reservation, more than once I SPECIFICALLY requested a location convenient to my residence. This location was all the way across town, very far away. When I arrived there was 1 person at the rental equipment processing desk. It took FOREVER, not to mention the desk attendant was on a personal phone call on his cell phone while we were waiting and checking out. This was poor customer service and rude as well.
My experience with U-Haul on Ben White was great. The staff was polite, patient, and efficient. I will reccommend this location to any friend, family member, or stranger.
I told them I would be delivering to another location and they did not take that down clearly. Because I received a rude call while on vacation in NY saying I haven't delivered it. Basically making me feel as if I stole the trailer. I said I delivered it to another location. The lady then said she would charge me more. Stil not sure if they have found it I keep getting calls and messages. Done with uhaul.
Nice setup very professional, no problems at drop off.
Great location, always have unventory of what ever I need.
Will rent again in 3 weeks to move into an apartment.
CALL ME 200 CHARACTERS IS NOT ENOUGH 512809-5178
hire more people. the employees were working as fast as they could but still over an hour wait. praise to the employees for doing the best they could for the situation they were put in.
I was charged $40 as a "wrong destination charge," even though I dropped the truck off at the correct location, and after such a stressful experience just reserving a truck and having the order be messed up so many times, this was a slap in the face. I dropped the truck off after hours and followed the arrow signs that were posted for equipment drop off until they stopped, then left the truck in what appeared to be a line of dropped off trucks. It was extremely difficult to discern what I was supposed to do or where to drop off my keys, but I can say with certainty that I left the truck at the correct address. If you had trouble finding the truck, it's your own damn fault for keeping such an overly crowded lot and providing such poor instructions. I will never bring my business to this location again, and I will probably never rent another U-Haul truck again for future moves from any location. It is just too obvious how little regard you have for your customers that you would simply bill my credit card without communicating with me at any point in the process. I believe that I am owed a refund for this charge, and I want an explanation for the cryptic $14 "coverage" charge which was also billed to me without my consent.
The wait was more than I anticipated for pickup though I had completed the online check-in. The wait was longer returning the vehicle and other folks were served ahead of me because I chose to sit down in the waiting area. I was never greeted as the only other customer in line so maybe this 6'4" fellow went unnoticed. I recommend staying in line or else lose your place. Also, there is no actual $19.99 rental when all is done.
I was happy with the person who checked me in but then I got a call later that they had given me a unit that had already been rented. Eventually they admitted they were mistaken but did not apologize.
They needed more help the lines were long.
I was charged $150 late fee. I will never be renting from Uhaul again, and I will be informing everyone I know through every social media outlet I can, that Budget is cheaper and doesn't use trucks that are falling apart. I will never rent another uhaul in my life.
I reserved 2 dolly's for boxes and 1 box for furniture and got none of them! when I picked up the truck they told me 'first come first serve' on dollys. This totally put me out and made my move much more difficult. This is an awful policy and I had a bad customer experience. I will find another company next time I move
The lady who helped us was amazing
I have no idea if my ubox has made it to the location. I was told by the "UHAUL" employee that my card was going to be charged half way into the trip. THAT WAS OVER A WEEK AGO! And still nothing!
You guys are fantastic! Everyone at U-Haul is friendly, works hard and seems to know what they're doing. I'm consistently impressed.
Improvements? The double sliding doors at the entryways could use signage to indicate which side will open. At this location, the parking lot could use some organizational help for customer traffic flow, though I realize this is difficult. Finally, things did back-up at the counter. Since this is clearly a popular place and the end of the month is big moving time, maybe more staff to process would be good at these high traffic times.
...but y'all are really great. Good people!
Flexibility/choice of drop-off locations was poor and Traffic Controller was not helpful to allow me to use a more convenient location. Yes, an additional 20 minutes driving time (round trip in heavy traffic) does have value to me.
The U-Haul truck has a sign posted inside to leave used/unused boxes inside the truck for other people to use. However, you are charged a $25.00 dollars for the truck being dirty/ to clean. This sign is misleading. Please fix.
In and out was so easy!! Thanks
The card could not getting access. I dislike the price went up. I just had two times increase the price. I just decide took out of my stuff things. Thanks
Clean, well priced but needed to move due location and consolidation.
You should create a one-time payment option on your web site rather than being forced to commit to a monthly auto draft.
My daughter has used these facilities for 3 years while a college student. Her experiences have been very good. The staff has been very helpful whenever I called from MD.
Yelp reviews were very low and concerning. James was very professional
While some of your staff were very friendly, some were not. I visited the site several times, rented three times and was going to rent to help some friends. we are going some place else.
My order was not ready, girl at the counter was not at all helpful, every person I dealt with at uhaul had problems with their computers.
Staff was always very helpful and accommodating. Very positive experience all around.
Communication and computer issues. Was not confident that I`d ever see my stuff again. I did.
Great experience. Thanks and best wishes.
I had the worst experience with Uhaul and their staff. I will be writing specific yelp Reviews about how awful this move has been.
The staff member that helped me was very pleasant and friendly. Understood my needs and was a very good listener and communicated with me quite well.
The staff was very friendly. They took time to show
us different units and answered all our questions.
My boxes were shipped from Austin, TX on April 1 - supposed to be going to Illinois. Today is April 23 and I still don`t have them. No one seems to know where they are.
Never. I hated my experience with U-Haul. The Austin location was fine, but the runaround I got from SF and the headquarters was shitty.
Ubox not locked upon arrival. Latch broken. Box not strapped.
Professional and on time delivery.
Many attempts to schedule pick-up. Calls not returned. Charged each month. Refund requested.
I suggest fixing the card reader - one has to swipe it 5 or 6 times in order to get in
The staff were very unfriendly, the U-box was left outside, because some things were wet and also, the price that I was charged was not what was advertised. Will not use U-haul for storage.
No move in specials or discounts, not even for veterans. The staff is pretty rude, or holds an attitude like they are better than you.
Was dissapointed with the attitude of the staff at the Ben White location. Desk staff is not friendly and seemed annoyed they also do not care about customers.
This storage facility was very good as far as storage facilities go.
Everyone was very friendly thank you
I was greeted, helped, and showed my new storage unit. My rep was very courteous and professional.
Everything was great. Smooth transition from getting the storage unit to returning the trailer.
The lady assisting me was rude. The location of the unit is awful and was forced to buy one of their locks. I was put into a unit with rat control and tape keeping the walls together!
Angel was excellent setting up my account and patiently answering all my questions.
Since my previous review manager Jesse Sedillo has taken care of my issue and credited my account. I will be using this facility again in the future.
Fiona Mason was great, super sweet and so helpful!
Manager Jesse is very hard to reach. Would not call me back and had his nice staff tell me: No pro-rating or future discounts $ was autodrafted 2 days before moving out of unit
We had a very positive experience loading the U-box. We hope to have the same result when we pick it up in a few weeks in a different state.
Manager was especially helpful and courteous. Great value compared to other storage units in the area.
courteous and helpful staff
Pulled the box quickly for me. ox in good condition
I appreciate the access to carts...
Uhaul on Ben White is awesome.
Great service. Thanks for the roller carts.
The attendants were knowledgeable with the Facility`s hours of operation.The young man who assisted me when returning the rented truck was kind enough to return a jacket that was left in the truck.
Ben White location was good. Garden St. Titusville FL received my U-box AA3535C did not call or document and allowed my box to go to Cocoa FL. Researched myself to know all that. Not good.
Knowable staff and very helpful.
