Your website system sucks. I click to make a reservation and give it my zip code. As requested I then select where I want to get the trailer (chose a place 5 minutes from home). Then it asks info about my truck. Then it tells me what trailers are available (I of course presume it is at the site I requested in step one). I select one and then nailed down the time to get it. The screen on my computer said it I had just reserved the trailer I wanted from the place I wanted. So I go to the place at the appointed time to pick it up, and it is not there. I look on my phone at the email confirmation you sent to me, and in the fine print it says that the trailer was in fact at a location a half an hour away. WTF? If it was not available at that location, why was it offered? I would have picked a different time or day to get it, if you would have told me. But I had lined up people that had adjusted their calendars at my request based on your website so I chose not to inconvenience them and drove the half hour. Thank God I have GPS or this would have been an even worse customer experience. I get there and no one is behind the counter. After 5 minutes I go outside and get someone to assist. I told them of my discontent with the website but we went ahead and did the rental. I get the trailer and you have rigged the trailer light cable to be 3-4 feet too short, so you can force me to buy an extension cable that I will NEVER need again. I tell the kid working there that this is bullshit. He said the manager had just taken all of the extensions off all the trailers and told the crew that the revenue is down, and they are to no longer loan these out, but to sell them to boost revenue. FUCK YOU. I gave the kid a piece of my mind as a customer for him to relay to his boss. He said the problem was not his boss but the bosses boss. So I am telling you that you have some garbage douche bags as SR managers. DO NOT nickel and dime customers with unnecessary extension cables. Instead, get your web reservation system tuned to prioritize where and when in addition to the what (specific kind of trailer/truck rental). I will tell everyone I know to avoid U-Haul. I will give you horrible Yelp reviews. U-Haul needs to do some serious management house cleaning. Maybe your CEO needs to do an "Undercover Boss" episode.

Although your basic truck (pickup) rental price appears to be quite reasonable ($19.95), your cost per mileage charge is utterly ridiculous and raises the total rental cost to something that's not even affordable. I'll never rent from Uhaul again nor will any of my friends if I can help it.

I pulled up and had to wait a few minutes before someone walked out to help. Not too bad just an observation.

Good rental experience with friendly staff. Super fast service as there was only one other customer. Minor points: Had to point out previous damage which they quickly applied an "X" sticker to. Liked that I could drop off trailer at night Called to get bill emailed and found out that the trailer was not checked in. CS sent an IM to on site staff and bill was emailed a few hours later.

The service person at the counter always very unpleasant. This location has been like this at least 8 years. If it is not because it is the biggest rental place, I won't recommend this place.

Charged my credit for late fees. Rented 4x7 trailer @ 5:29PM and returned the trailer @ 8:51PM. I made sure that the security camera recorded me and I took pictures for proof of delivery. Now they are charging an extra $16.30!

I rented a $19.95 a day vehicle for 3 days and the bill was $160. Incredible!

The women at counter was a robot. She recited a script to me and we agreed to a drop off time . I was called back later and told I had to bring truck back sooner than I had planned. And the kid on the phone was really rude about it. I won't even go into the storage hell story. Just glad to be free from that place!

The wait to pick up the trailer was very long and the chains were left long so I had to readjust them.

The staff was great. I have used U-Haul for many years. This year I was in and out in 15 minutes because they probably keep my information from past years.

My rental had a cigarette butt and ashes still in its container. As a non-smoker, the odor is strong.

Yes, they were really great in getting the truck that I need especially when I am traveling really far and I must have the truck with cigarette adaptor for my phone. He was really great in making sure I get that. The location is great for me to drop off the truck cause it's right off the hwy. Thank you

This firm placed my child and I in knowingly dangerous situation by renting a trAiler with completely bald tired with threads exposed. The tires were so bald they looked like inner tubes. It was not discovered until we were 1200 miles or so into our journey and numerous mechanical stops due to the west and damage this issue caused to my vehicle. This agency knew that myself and my daughter were going to make a 3,000 mile move from California to Virginia. They did not advise me also that the number one issue on hauling trailers are they effect transmissions and corporate uhaul has a brochure thst states this and advises on uhauls add on suggestion of a transmission cooler. I was never told of this and after five uhaul vista across country because the trailer was out of country and the bald tires damaged my vehicle (think pulling dead weight no tread over 8,000 FT elevations) my transmission as well as tires, mounts etc were destroyed in the process. I will be seeking arbitration this matter. As of the Fremont location was not erroneous enough a uhaul dealer in Ogallala NE replaced both bald tires with unbalanced tires and a bent wheel!!! Our wonderful mom and daughter exciting road trip across country getting to see all Americas roadside attractions ended up being a lesson in mechanics and stress. We barely made it to virginia before my transmission was destroyed and I had to replace four new tires!!! I further cannot believe that no one from this location even bothered to contact me after the numerous breakdowns and roadside assistance calls as a result. If you are concerned about safety DO NOT use UHaul I even called a uhaul dealer on one breakdown in Lincoln NE to be told they couldn't help me they only rent uhsul they don't service them do they don't even have a wrench to check lug nuts for tightness and I'd be better off pulling over at a service station with a mechanic!! I would like to say if it were not for the JIFFY LUBE's in every state that care took my car to bandage it to make it my child and I (and dog and cst and gecko) would not have made it. Thank you jiffy lubes for epitomizing exceptional customer service. Shame on UHaul for the worst customer service in history.

Your gasoline policy is structured to overcharge your customers. And it it is hard to believe you do not have locking gas caps. And your facility is not fenced in. And you have no facility gas pump for all your trucks. These things are givens in other rental facilities. It's like you are still in the 20th century.
