The truck's cab had some odor and the brakes were squealing when applied. Otherwise, a great experience, no troubles encountered.

They charged me extra 35 dollars for gas when i filled it up and turned it in to exactly where it was when I rented it. I called the location and asked why and they said the gas was a little less then where it was when I rented it which is a total lie. I need your help to get my money back. Also the person I called to ask about this was rude to me.

The lady in charge was very rude. We selected a 10" trailer but when I got there she said I only had it for 2 hours even though their website said I would have it for 4. She forced us into getting a larger trailer which obviously cost more. Her attitude was uncalled for and I don't ever plan on going back there for anything and will definitely tell people to take their money elsewhere.

AVOID THIS UHAUL LOCATION!!! I made the reservation about 3 hrs before I needed the truck, and wanted to pick up the truck at the 13 mile location in warren. Due to availability I had to go to the backus auto wash. No problem so far. I confirmed the reservation and the man on the phone sounded very annoyed that I wouldn't be there until 4-430pm. I told him that I had to take care of some things first, and if I was going I be late I'd call. I called at 415 to let him know i was on the way but running a bit behind because my wife's grandmother wasn't dressed when I got to the hospital to take her home. I arrived at 450 to find the doors locked and the place closed. I walked around back and knocked, and came back around front to find the man walking out and locking the door. "We're closed" he said, I told him I was here to pick up the truck I had reserved, and the guy starts yelling at me because he "has an appointment". I was awestruck to be talked to like that, it was rude and beyond inappropriate, If you don't want to rent trucks to people before 5p on a Friday then maybe you shouldn't be a uhaul dealer. I strongly urge Uhaul corporate to review the business practices of this location, I will not be a uhaul customer again due directly to this experience.

We had problems right from the beginning, our first location did not have the truck for us, had to go to this location that was way out of the way and then had to wait additional time because they lost the keys to the truck. We had to pay movers additional time and they couldn't stay the extra time because they had another job so we couldn't get all of the contents of my mothers house (whom just died). Then we returned the truck at the time designated to only be charged extra miles when we paid for unlimited miles that is clearly stated in our contract! I will never use u-haul again and will do all I can to make sure their business is hurt by our inconvenience! I will take to social media and spread the word as much a possible! Horrible experience!

Parking is very limited, and there are no signs anywhere to tell you where to park, how to get to a person/office, etc. Also, when I was shown my truck, the woman pointed to it, and I said, "The one in the huge puddle?" and she just chuckled and said, "Yes", but made no effort to assist. The ENTIRE TRUCK was in a huge puddle, with no way to get in without walking in water over 2"-3" deep. I was only wearing basic canvas shoes, and after a couple minutes of looking all around and not finding a way to get in, I had to go back into the office and ask if someone else could please get the truck pulled out of the puddle for me. She didn't seem particularly happy about, but she called a guy to help me. Just didn't seem very customer service oriented.

rented on line to pick up in MI and return to WV at one rate and was charged another ($100.00 more) and place rented from online would not rent to me and sent me to another dealer, not a good experience. Will need to think before renting next month about options.

The place is filthy. The location is confusing with no sign/directions where to go for "u-haul rental". The person who took care of us was cranky, rude, slammed doors and ignored us half the time we were there.

Owner did not care at all to assist customer when asked for help when dropping off truck and dolly. Was not interested the least bit to come out of his office on a wet Sunday morning. Very very disappointing experience. You want service, don't go here!

The only issue was finding a place to park to pick up the truck.
