No improvement needed, I had an excellent experience with this location.

Waited for quite a long time to receive my receipt, when finally I stated I didn't need it and just left. In addition, upon dropping the Uhaul off, we had to leave and get gas in the Uhaul as we were told it was 1/16th less than when we picked it up. Upon filling it, it was then 1/16th above what we picked it up with, but nothing was done to compensate this discrepancy. Also upon return, we were told that we had to fold the blankets that we rented or be charged a fee. The blankets were folded, although they were dirty and not folded as they were originally, therefore I found this request to be a waste of time and ridiculous!

I was told that to get comp for the problem I had to get it from where we picked up the truck or he could give us a gift card I don't need or want a gift card from U Haul. He did give me the info to get in contact with Mr. Mitchell.

There was only one person working. He was good at his job, but maybe hire more people. At least have more than one person when first opening.

Had to call 800 number twice to ensure that I was turning in trailer properly....given misinformation first time. Only semi-professional and not very accommodating on first call. Overall marginal experience returning trailer; was glad to get it back into your custody so that this poorly handled rental would be over!

Telling all the details about price taxes insurance charges might be considered. Three people not traveling that can be called at the point of pick up if a check is being written and two if using a credit card..really? Does your company experience a lot of theft by a 58 year old woman and a 24 year old girl. I would seriously warn anyone planning to us your company, the untold costs and difficulty of pick up...also many of the order on the phone personnel poor very poor. Does that answer the question.

The gentleman at the drop off location in Victoria, TX was very friendly. The drop off procedure was less than 5 minutes. Very painless. Overall, we were extremely happy using U-Haul!!!

A little more customer courtesy from managing personnel. Rick(manager) just needs a little more people skills orientation and practice. He should become a fine manager and an asset to the Uhaul corporation.

I originally wanted to rent the tow trailer from this location. When I called I was told 1 was available I get there some time later & im told they had nothing. The girl who I was at desk was NOT very helpful & was made to feel like she didn't really want to help me. I asked if she could get me info from another Uhaul store she said she couldn't I just ended finding info on my cell phone. They gentleman that I spoke to on the phone twice was friendly & if I were to rent from this location I would ask for him to help me

Make sure the gas tanks are at a full level. It is a pain to have to try and fill the tank back up to the level it was at and then get it back to the drop off. I should'nt have to give your company gas to make sure I'm not overcharged.

The gentleman on duty when my wife and I went to return the truck completely ignored us for probably ten minutes even though we were standing right in front of his desk. He continued to talk to someone seated in front of him (his friend apparently) engaging in small talk..."let me tell you another good old story..." It was ridiculous. Finally, I said "I'm sorry, I have to return this truck." This obviously angered him. He just said "Give me the keys, you're done." Very rude. No paperwork. No inspecting the truck. This was the dayBEFORE the truck was due back. The next day I went back there, because I got a phone call that said "your truck is LATE are you going to bring it back". I went in and two young ladies were there to help me. They were very helpful, and the type of employees that built U-HAUL success. The gentleman the day before let us stand there while they chatted, never acknowledged our presence, never said "can I help you", never said "I'll be with you in a minute" etc. He just completely ignored us, and showed no sign that he ever intended to help us. That kind of behavior will kill a business, ruin your reputation, and destroy a franchise. I have always had good luck with U-HAUL, but that day was a complete loser, because of that particular gentleman. The young lady on the following day was very apologetic, and finally found some paperwork from the day before. She said..."He never entered the "return" into the computer."

Dude needs to pay a little more attention to the customer he Is waiting on. Did too many things at once. I believe In multi tasking but this was over the top.

The rep behind the counter was very nice and helpful, however as always there were 5 people lined up with one person waiting on them. The boss was busy with something else and could not be bothered to help.

Ric Blankenship is kind & thoughtful assist manager to customers & employees from what I have observed many times I rented at his location Sam Houston St. in Victoria, TX. RIC Blankenship is a GREAT PROBLEM SOLVER for the Customers & Employees & works well under pressure. He SHOULD BE MANAGER. NOT once have I seen the manager there. Ric's employees seem to like him and they seem to get along great and he is a great problem solver which help the customers..there is no tension because he just knows how to handle the problems. I have NEVER seen the manager there. Ric Blankenship for sure would make a terrific manager. I do not understand why he isn't manager. For 2 years now I have been always very pleased how Ric Blankenship takes CARE of my SAFE moving travel needs. Thanks, Linda (LFE).

Previous rentals allowed all weekend if rented on a Friday. I was very surprised to find I had a time limit on my rental. As far as the 'advertised 19.99' turned into $60+, I was seriously not amused. And then called twice to verify I DID drop off the rental at agreed time. No, I will not recommend THIS location. I will recommend reserving online as that's why I got stuck w a van instead of a truck. Even tho my new home is 6 blocks from rental and I was able to verify many 'reserved' trucks never moved while I made multiple trips. I will reserve in the future, and not from this location. If someone reserves, there should be a time limit for showing up!

Ric at Sam Houston UHaul is a gem. The computer system gave him grief at every turn, but he got the equipment I needed, on time and in a friendly, professional way. I will always be indebted to him!
