I drove 8 miles in this truck put $5 of gas in @2.19 per gal. so when I picked the truck the gauge was on/near full. So either the truck was not "full" or the truck gets 3.5 miles to the gal.

Nothing wrong with the location at all. U-Haul as a company has the worst customer communication I have ever had with a company in my whole life. You guys need to your stuff together. I would never recommend U-Haul as a moving company even to my worst enemy!

People were nice but the truck was a piece of crap. Windows so dirty ( on the inside ) it impaired your vision. Truck shutter and jumped when accelerating from a stop.

This is the second time in the past year I rented a truck from Backus, and I have been completely satisfied with my experience.

Bad customer service, not very friendly.

The size of the truck was very unclear to new and some of your processes and policies were not very expedient at all. Things would have gone much smoother at the location if the corporation had some details together more, but the dealer had no control over this

This had to be one of the worst customer service interactions I have ever had. I was treated like dirt. The sales lady there was of no help what so ever. Also never got my $50 of my reservation guarantee.

The computer systems were down at this location which made it difficult to pick up the truck. We had to do everything over the phone, which wouldn't have been a problem but the person behind the counter was pushy, rude and all around unpleasant to work with. I was using this through a corporate account so i did not need to present my credit card and my father told the gentleman behind the counter that and the gentleman stated "well, we'll see about that" in a very snarky tone. Then when my dad asked the gentleman to do his job without all of the little extra comments he kept saying under his breath, the gentleman got extremely irrate. If the calls are recorded from that day, we were on the line with U-haul so there is no doubt the entire conversation is recorded. After that confrontation the gentleman completly turned around his attitude and was helpful enough to get our truck and have us on our way. Overall though, I would not recommend this location to ANYONE trying to move. If you have any questions about my experience, please feel free to contact me.

Location was convenient, excellent staff! However, u-Haul corporation was not nearly as adequate. Waited 45 minutes while staff wrestled with computer problems. Resolution was to conduct transaction over the phone, which should have been provided by U-Haul as soon as a resolution to the computer problem was not forth coming. U-Haul made no attempt to reach out to inconvenienced customers (I was one of several) to try and improve/relieve the experience. Not very good customer service at the corporate level!

My truck was not available until 1 1/2 hours after promised due to a computer glitch. There was no discount given for the inconvenience.
