Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Moving & Storage of University City
We highly recommend this rental location for your rental needs. The staff and service the morning we picked up our van was excellent and very professional. The system was easy to follow and well explained to us. The equipment was clean and well maintained. Thank you.
Very good location with clear signage and a helpful staff. They made the return process smooth and quick.
Overland didn't have trailer I needed and recommended me to U city. I was a little concerned about going to the U city location, but Larry was great. Very personable and great service. Maybe I shouldn't, but I have to say that part of my apprehension was due to the black and white tensions in St. Louis lately. Being white made me all the more want to commend Larry for his service. People like Larry go a long way toward easing black and white tensions.
Man who checked me in was great! Also think the merchandising of dollie and blankets is a very smart move, bet they are used more times than not!! Will use this location again!!!!
Did everything on-line great service after arriving. Thanks guys.
The guy that checked in the uhaul was very professional and prompt. He should get a raise. He got me in and out so fast..thank you ??
Erica Norman is so nice. If I need to rent a U-Haul for me personally, I will drive across town passing up other stores to go to her store. Well managed!
I'm 63 year old man and they actually made me fold up the blankets I rented. Really? Also the fuel guage and the picture of the fuel guage for marking fuel use had the "E" and "F" on oposite sides making 3/4 full look like 3/4 empt. Thank the Lord my mileage was less the 10 miles because they insited that I used a 1/2 of gas and owed the more money. All of this made me extremely unconfortable
It was unclear to me that the rental of the truck was only for 6 hours. When I have rented in the past it was for the entire day and couldn't imagine a U-Haul truck needed for moving (the larger trucks) how they would ever be needed for less than 1 day. The website was could have done a much better job making that transparent. The 6 hours was mentioned as "typical move" or the average amount of time needed is 6 hours. NOT this truck you are renting is only for 6 hours. When I showed up the woman told me it was only for 6 hours because it was there peak season. I would think we are getting close to peak in the spring/summer and beginning of Fall but that was her justification. I had people lined up to help with the move and planned to have the truck all day. This was a shock but somehow managed to get it all moved. Luckily my move was close and I have amazing people helping me. Moving is stressful enough on everyone involved (including your team) please don't let this happen to someone else and make it more transparent. Perhaps a confirmation that they click on, or remove all the extra non-value added stuff that customers must click through to add a truck/trailer reservation to their cart. The extra's are distracting and irritating as people try to quickly click through those. The checkout process could be enhanced and I tried to call multiple times and no one answered as I would prefer to book over the phone/in-person vs internet because of these exact reasons listed above. Last thing, I was also told my truck must be back by 2:00 and that I couldn't extend that time and I couldn't rent another truck. However, I went online and saw an available reservation for 2:45 that I booked. I assumed this wasn't valid since the woman said there were not trucks available but it was valid as I had to cancel it to make sure I wasn't charged for another truck.
I hope my comments are constructive feedback to help make your company better. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me as I am typing this before I head out the door and wanted to make sure I gave some feedback before I forgot. Thanks for listening.
The persons in the morning when I checked the truck out where very good. However, the person (Brian H.) when I returned truck in at the proper time I was told to return the truck was extremely rude and pushy. I did remained calm and just wanted to review the travel mileage before I completed payment but he refused and I had to get a satisfactory answer from whom I believed was the shift manager.
Everyone there was excellent -- friendly, quick service and almost new truck.
Thanks to all for a terrific experience!!
This is my second time renting a truck from this location. Both times I had a great experience. The place is clean. (Including the updated restroom.) The trucks were clean and as advertised. The people were friendly. Reservation by phone was easy. Processing at pick-up and delivery was quick. Nothing but positives.
This place has several rude employees. They treat you like shit and act like they are going to be there until 6, so no reason to hurry.
On line check in made process much quicker. Without that, it took a while. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Personable staff. Quick and easy rental.
Make sure the miles driven are 100% accurate.
Some light inside the unit would be an improvement.
I filled up the van and realized that the van was not filled up. That was bit of a disappointment. I drove 15 miles and put in four gallons. But it looked full.
Also, Saturday morning was crazy busy and it only seemed that they had one person working at the desk. This seems to be very poorly staffed. That woman was working her tail off.
Pricing needs to be more visible on the website and the entire expected price needs to be understood up front on the website. I expected to pay $50 when it cost me more due to fees. $86 was my end cost with the cost of fuel.
Nothing everything was professional
When I came to return my rental, there was only one employee present and he was very busy. He informed me that he would email me my final charges and all I got was this survey. I would appreciate if I got an accounting of what I was charged and that people follow through on what they say.
The two gentlemen had very good customer service thank you
Erica is professional and efficient.
keep up the good work and nice bathroom!!!!
Make sure the checkout is completely promptly. We rec'd a call 24 hours after we turned the vehicle in asking us when we would return the vehicle !?!? And they were rather rude about it. Not sure what happened on U-Haul's end as they said they would call us back with closure but never did. Later that afternoon (the day after we returned the vehicle) we finally rec'd our email receipt.
I could not do my job without Erica and Larry - they take good care of me! This location is the friendliest, most professional, and most efficient in St. Louis.
I reserved a car dolly, I called ahead to tell the employes I would be there before closing I drove over 50 miles, after getting there they said there equipment was broke after telling me the reservation department messed up the reservation, then mysteriously I got a call telling me to go back there the next day, I got the exact unit they claimed was broke less than 15 hours later, this was a inconvenience that cost me money and a customer, not happy at all!!
Everything is is good as is.
I had multiple schedule changes for my move-in date to my new apartment, stating from a later date to earlier. The uhaul reps I talked to over the phone were very understanding and accomadating! And pick-up of the vehicle was easy and quick! Same with the drop-off of the vehicle. Over all.... A very pleasant experience!
Thanks, Erica, for all of your help!
I received excellent customer service.
Excellent customer service and friendly staff.
Everything was fine except 79 cents per mile. May consider Budget next time because 20% discount and 59 cents per mile.
customer service was excellent.
The assistant manager Larry has very poor customer service skills and doesn`t know how to properly communicate with customers!
I love this location! Everyone is friendly, well prepared and the trucks are always clean!
Everything is great~Erica so nice!
Everything was done and ready to go by the time I got there.
Erica and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and courteous. Next time I need a storage unit or truck rental, I will choose this location.
the staff was very friendly and professional
Hinges pried open, lock ruined. difficult to schedule pick up. Uhaul should check location of box storage as someone tried to break into mine. Strong lock worked, but lock ruined.
Please contact me to discuss my experience at 314-724-2782
Excellent experience. Smooth and no issues. Would definitely recommend!
i will still use UHaul in my storage and moving jobs though honestly I cant think of a competitor. Good job in advertising. The staff I encountered were not that accomodating and helpful.
Excellent in every respect.
I am very grateful my items were kept secure for the nearly two years I had the storage locker. The staff were always friendly and I would definitely recommend this location to others.
Ms. Erica Norman is an excellent manager. She is courteous, efficient, and accessible when there are questions. I will recommend Ms. Erica Norman to anyone. Thank you.
The staff were very friendly and even noticed a sports team on my shirt, and then every time I came back he remembered me we talked about my team! Great experience.
The store manager Erica is great! My move was very stressful and she helped me out alot!
Jamar was very professional and polite...It was a pleasure to have him assist me...
Ms Erica and her staff were excellent.
The layout of the place is terrible. Upper levels are accessed by a set of rolling stairs that block the rest of the corridor if in use.
I have stored here multiple times and the experience has gotten better every time. If I ever need to store again, I will be back
Very easy to work with. Would use again.
Very unclear pricing/ unclear that storage unit upper level means a ladder is required, rather than elevator, etc., such that you have to pay a higher rate for a ground floor unit
The crew was great. Thanks.
Movers arrived on time and were very friendly and helpful in fitting many of my items into the U-Box.
I have call Missouri Attorney office about this site and what happen to me and I fine call U-Haul main about this site the next day and U-Haul main office have not call 314.974.4324
The staff was very friendly and answered all my questions. It`s a bit wierd that my unit was on the second floor, but there were lots of carts to move all my stuff. Overall, things were ideal.
The staff were very friendly and helpful they made you feel right at home. I will recommend this U_Haul Storage to all of my friends and relative. Thank You all for all the you did. WAREEN PHILLIPS
Erica was extremely helpful
Very friendly staff. Fast and efficient service.
the manager Erica was pleasant with a professional manner.
The staff was very helpful. My over all experience was very good and I would use your service again.
My experience was ery good. I would definitely use them again.
U ships key to an outofstate address but postage notice was never left. The key location was unknown to me for 2weeks. Erin 3143557920 was hard to reach. U wouldn`t cut the key off. Very inconvenient.
The staff was very professional and helpful.
I rate my experience on the scale from 1-10 a 10.
The staff was always friendly and accommodating.
excellent service from beginning to end, especially Erica.
The move-in was easy. The move-out was just OK. When I went into the store for checkout, there was nobody present at the counter and I had to wait around 15-20 minutes.
The people were often not at the desk, but the storage unit wasn`t moldy and my stuff stayed relatively nice.
Overall it was a good storage facility
The storage unit was great, but a little warm my unit was on the 2nd floor but besides that, it was safe and clean the entire time I used it which was over 6 months.
Erica Newman was great at providing me with excellent customer service. She seemed generally interested in making my experience a pleasant one. She deserves KUDOS!!!!
I was frustrated to learn that the lock we had purchased for the truck could NOT be used for the storage room, forcing us to buy a second lock. Why require renters to purchase two different locks?
Erica Norman was always extremely helpful and cheerful. She even remembered my name. Really made a positive impact on my experience.
The woman who helped us was very friendly. And the mover was great
Initially, my experience was not favorable however, towards the end of my account, the manager extended a courtesy which was greatly appreciated. The lighting leaves much to be desired.
Lousy, expensive, why did i have to buy a lock when my own lock was better than u haul`s and had an insurance guarantee.
The rates deceptive. Access to the upper areas impossible. No lighting in lockers! No 24 hr. access.
Friendly staff. Convenient location and easy to use.
The one complaint that I have is that I spoke with an offsight person that gave me wrong information. The customer should be able to speak with people at the facility.
The store hours aren`t long enough.
The access to the space with my vehicle was the greatest factor, then the price.
Storage Banc has drive up access, 10x10 for $105. Overall a good experience.
Very good services and facilities
Wonderfu experience. Staff was friendly and helpful to us as first time user.
Used for the second time this summer. Good space and convenient location.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, we never had any problems here.
Very nice people working there. Very convenient for me. I liked it fine and am glad to have it near my house.
I am veryy happy with the service at this U-Haul facility.
it was very nice and clean staff was friendly and helpful
I was one day late and I think a $20.00 late charge for one day is a bit much.
Bill did not address the problem at hand. I had to get over insistent to get him to help me. I was livid I had paid 2 workers to retrieve my items and we had to come back twice time is money.
Friendly people, easy access to storage!
The manager, erica was very polite, courteous, helpful, so were the staff. If I ever need uhual services again I`m going back to the olive location. I would recommend this store to everyone.
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! WOULD RECCOMEND
Ms. Erica was very helpful, friendly and understanding in everything. She went above and beyond her job to correct anything that wasn`t right.

Staff was always very friendly and helpful. They do a great job.

Ms. Erica Norman is the absolute best representative for your company. She is polite, helpful, and courteous which is something that you don`t encounter today. SHE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST!
Both gentlemen working yesterday at the U City location were kind, professional and helpful.
All staff was so pleasant and knowledgeable. We had a great experience. thanks
Friendly helpful staff. Clean facility. I was pleased.
The facility is clean and easy to access, and the manager, Erica Norman is very friendly and helpful, as are all of her employees.
It said that we would have 24 hour access to the storage unit, but I guess the climate controlled portion closes by 7pm
staff and manager were extremely helpful. i was in a hurry and they took care of me quickly without sacrificing any quality of service
Erica was very helpful, and had a great sense of humor. The facility was very clean.
person doing the computer had NO clue what they were doing, the manager had to come over and help him at least 3 times throughout the simple transaction
One of your staff members is very very slow.
I had to move under a very unpleasant situation, Erica was comforting, accommodating and very helpful. I will only use the U-City @ Midland Uhaul for any of my other moves.
Ms. Erica Norman was extremely helpful in facilitating my move-out from my unit. I really appreciate her kind attitude and helpfulness. Thank you.
Dr. M. Camille Fulle
The overall experience was very good. The manager is very friendly and helpful.
LOVED the manager Erica! Great facilities. Thank you for a great experience!
I valued the items stored at this facility and they were maintained in the same manner.
Storage spaces are not secure.Someone cut the wire grating covering my unit,and stole a telescope.VCR,and three oil paintings.They also broke the glass in another picture and threw junk into unit.
employee`s were always nice and helpful.i had recommend this location to my family and friends because of the great customer service
The store manager Erica was wonderful very professional.
Not air conditioned. Not enough dolly carts for such a large storage facility. Restroom not working. Too hard to get to our storage unit. We will not use this storage location again.
I am always impressed by the excellent customer service of Erica Norman.
The facility was very clean and customer service was excellent
The manager in charge was great. She was very professional and helpful and a pleasure to work with.
Very friendly customer service!
Stored here for 6 months, all is well!
Some staff members were friendly.
Everything worked out very well and everyone there was helpful. Great hours for me and good price. Thanks!
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Everything went as smoothly as I could have hoped for.
Closing at 7pm really limits the window for putting things in storage for those with jobs. I think it would be better to shift the hours to 8am-8pm or 9am-9pm.
The door of my unit is breaking so that the lock would be useless if someone wanted to break in.
In and out, staff very friendly and helpful.
The facility was nice and clean, the stair unit was a little wobbly.
Excellent customer service, clean environment.
Erica and her staff was very helpful in a trying time.
The facilities are good but the staff was very good and friendly and helpful.
Everyone was very nice and very helpful.
