After being notified of original place was full I was given a place not in my town so called U-Haul and given this place and when arriving the gentleman said he was full as well but shifted things around just to allow me to drop off. Stand up guy!

My first impression I was like pulling into a junkyard. The young lady that was the greeter at the front desk was very friendly and efficient ; however, the truck windshield was in need of a thorough cleaning, inside & out. I am not sure if 62,000 miles is considered to much for a UHaul truck but this trucks suspension was horrible .

Not a criticism of the drop off location, it was closed at the time, but a criticism of the process. When I picked up the truck we picked the option to select our specific drop off location later. Without my input, U-Haul selected a drop off location that was not convenient to me. The online app did not allow me to change it. I'm disappointed with trying to contact U-Haul phone customer service. I spent 20+ minutes on hold, then waited over an hour for a callback. When the rep finally called me back we got disconnected and I was sent back to the end of the line. Do not direct me to use the app if the app can't do what I want or at least answer my question.

The charges were in error and it took me several hours to get it corrected. They would not correct the overcharge for gas at the location. I drove 12 miles, had it in 2 gallons of gas and they charged me an extra $30 service fee and also put I. 2 gallons.

They gave me a really hard time. Told me I would be charged for 2 days because they truck was late. Then they told me I didn't put enough gas in the truck I put the gas back where it was when I got it. Now I'm getting a bill for another $113. How could that be for 5 hours. I rent Uhaul all the time and this was the worst experience.

The truck had multiple issues, including a driver's door that was dang near impossible to open and close (even came open while driving) and it was very difficult to get the key into the ignition. Additionally, I was charged $44 for gas when I put a total of 8 miles on the truck.

This facility is a used car lot. It only had one trailer in the back and is difficult to get to and not well marked that it is a Uhaul facility. The owner told me he didnt know much about the Uhaul stuff since his wife did most of it and she was out. He told me to use the app. When I asked about the app he said he didn't know much about it either. Yesterday I received an additional 109$ charge with know real explanation why in the missing / damage section. I paid for insurance and I did not rent any equipment. so I do not knw why I was charged. I filled the tank more than I had received as well.

Wouldn't recommend this place the so called owner is very unprofessional of arguing with customers. Pick and choose to be nice too certain people. She needs a course in management and she over charged me. This makes uhaul look bad. Also phone services sucks no one answers either phone especially the phone number on the business card.

The guy who took care of us, it was his first day and we were his very first customer. He was awesome and nervous all at the same time. His boss helped him too. It was a very good experience and I will always use uhaul, always have because the customer service is always up to my standards. Definitely a future choice and I will definitely refer anyone who needs a moving company

I paid for a small square dolly and was not provided one. I reserved a 15 foot truck at king street location and ended up going down the road and getting a 26 foot truck. I am very grateful I got a truck but it was WAY too big and hard for me to drive. The pick up was by my phone and the location and pick up were great. Except no dolly.

Terrible experience. Rude employee and truck that I reserved was not available and after pushing to not take a truck that was 30% larger than I wanted magically the truck I reserved became available after waiting 30 minutes past my reservation time. The employee was unbelievably rude, aggressive and beyond unhelpful. I will not use this location again not recommend it to others.

I had to drive to another location to get the dozen blankets I had ordered. The truck was not clean. I had to sweep the back and clean the interior of the cab. There was dog hair in the cab. I had to clean the windshield. It was filthy. I had to pick the truck up a day early.

Actually answer the phone when a customer is calling to pick up their uhaul and the lock box won't open to even get the keys. Terrible customer service. Ended up not using the truck at all and having to go to a different location because us and another couple couldn't get the lockbox to open with the code they gave us.

Continently located, but the pick up process was incredibly difficult. I was not aware of the one hour window for pick up after hours, was unable to access the appropriate website prompts, and was unable to get in contact with anyone who worked for Uhaul the night I was supposed to pick up. The following morning I called at 7am and was on hold for 30min prior to reaching someone and then spent over 30min trying to gain access through the website at the pick up location before downloading the app using cellular data (the "free wifi" option at the pick up location didn't work) and finally getting the information needed to pick up the vehicle. In the future, it would be helpful to know in advance that the app is more reliable than the website and to have some idea of the steps that need to be taken in order to pick up after hours

I was scheduled to pick up my trailer at 11am. The facility opened 40 minutes late due to the one U-haul rep being at a doctors appointment and being under the weather, which I do have compassion for. However, I didn't leave the facility until 12:15pm after the employee hooked the trailer to my truck. Then, on my way to return the trailer to another location later that afternoon the trailer came unhitched from my truck on the interstate. It was not properly secured to my vehicle!! I was fortunate to get my truck and trailer to the side of the road and waited 90 minutes for roadside assistance. All in all, I terrible U-Haul experience. 2.5 hours of wasted time, not to mention an almost catastrophic accident that all could have been avoided. For the next customer, be sure to confirm your trailer is properly secured by the representative before you pull away!!

U-Haul order AF0F92EC. This order was needed for a move on 5/1/21 which was done via trailer 5/1/21. This was done through U-Haul so they knew when I was moving. I was sent only the ball and charged the full amount on 4/19/21. After 5 days of not hearing anything, I called customer service and was told that there was a 2-3 week back order on a product that I needed (and U-Haul knew I needed based on my reservation history) in 7 days time. I had to frantically search for a mount because nobody at uhaul felt The need to tell me that the item crucial to my move wasn't available for my move. So, after cancelling the order I had to go through the process of waiting in the phone, i was told I could only return in person. Come to find out you have this freaking product IN STORE. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I drove 20 minutes out of my way to a U-Haul. Your U-Haul refused to refund my hitch ball after I was informed by your customer service that if I gave them my receipt it would be taken care of. When I got there, they said they didn't do refunds. After 20 minutes of waiting and coaxing, they finally agreed but they couldn't find the number to my order. Apparently it's not on the receipt. During this entire process I had already gotten on the phone knowing I would have an issue. I was on hold for 30 minutes and no indication when your company would even answer the phone. He said he could not approve the refund without getting y'all on the phone but you weren't answering. Additionally, since I had been in your store or teaceling fk your store for over an hour, I needed to leave. When I asked if I could give him the info over the phone, he said he wouldn't do it over the phone. When I said I had already been there for 45 minutes he said “not my fault. Not my problem”. Is this really how you guys work? I'm an established U-Haul customer with consistent use of one of your products for close to 10 years now. At this point, I will go out of my way and pay more money to use another company but yours. What an unreal experience you guys have put me through.

The lot for drop off was way too small to maneuver a 12 foot trailer to drop off, because there's only one entrance/exit and not wide enough with all of his other rental returns sitting there. They have after hours drop off, but with the lot being small, and then having their other gates closed after hours, it's impossible to maneuver. We were able to unhook the trailer and pulled it behind a truck also parked in the equipment return spot. It was very arduous to move it manually, but because of the position of things on the lot, I could not back it in anywhere and just leave it where it was unhooked. It was also impossible to back out of the lot once I pulled in due to it being on a busy road in the dark and thunderstorming, so I couldn't switch to another location at that point. I was also told roadside assistance couldn't help with any of this. I told the support agent on live chat (Jorge Toste) that I had to leave it behind another truck in the drop off/return spot because we physically could not move it anywhere else, and the lot wasn't maneuverable. About 20 minutes after I left it at the location, the owner of the location called me upset. He said that I blocked in a truck that was to be picked up in the morning (their hours said they were closed on Sunday, but he said he had 24hr pick up) and now he was there in the rain in dress attire, and at 60 years old, couldn't maneuver it. Him saying that to me, the customer who was still soaked completely from being in the rain for about an hour trying to figure it out myself, really rubbed me the wrong way. I explained that there was no way to back it in because he had the gate closed (that would have given me more room to pull over at an angle and then back in). I told him I had talked with support, and had no choice due to his small lot being so full in the return section. I emailed pictures of the lot and the truck parked in front of the equipment return sign to jorge_toste@uhaul.com. The owner said he guessed he understood the predicament, but still tried to make me feel guilty by saying he was going to lose out on a $1k rental. I didn't appreciate being made to feel like I had done something wrong when there was literally no way to back my truck up at an angle, and then basically being told I was costing him $1k due to his own poor planning with the organization of the lot.

Horrible experience. We dropped our trailer off one day EARLY on 4/2/21 and yet this location charged us for late drop off! No one was there when we dropped off at 11:30 on a Friday. My husband followed instructions to drop off with no one there. Received a bill for $91.56 for a late drop off...really? Still trying to fight this. Calling UHaul customer service yet again because the area manager who was meant to call me never did. I've been on hold for 45 mins so far. I don't understand why customer service could not help me with this in the first place. So frustrating when you do the right thing and then get charged for doing the wrong thing! Very unlikely I will use UHaul again.

Easy process to drop the truck off, however there was only one place to enter and exit and a truck was blocking it when we arrived. Because of that, we had to wait in a nearby parking lot for a while until it left to enter the lot.

Rushed me through and didn't print a receipt. Partially not their fault as U-Haul sent me 2 different locations for pickup, one on email and a different one on text. Average for the balance of quickly being able to get me a truck but also rushing me and not sending any email or receipt at all.

A cleaned and sanitized truck due to Covid 19. There was a cup and bottle of liquid in the truck. A Large piece of Plastic in the cargo. No hand truck with my truck. I had to go to another location and pay AGAIN for a hand truck. The location was way out of my area. I called customer service to be refunded and was given a hard time. Was also informed that there would be no compensation for my inconvenience, time and gas. Moving is already hectic and this was the icing on the cake!

Location is a small car lot. Driveway is full of water filled potholes. There is no marked parking. I asked a man who was working in the lot if I could leave my car in a spot for 2 hours while I used the truck. He says “yes” and then 25 minutes later they call me telling me they're going to tow my car. Worst U-Haul ever.

They said that the lights were not working on the trailer because something was wrong with my connection not the trailers. So I went to Walmart and bought some stick on lights with to stick them on turns out the last person who rented this had done the same thing so they rented me a trailer with no lights complete stressful situation on an already stressful situation. Not cool not happy.

I reserved a dolly with my truck reservation. When i arrived, I was told that my dolly had been rented out. As a result, i had to stop and buy a dolly. This was an inconvenience, as I'd hoped to go straight from the UHaul dealer to my home.
