Dean and Darren very helpful. Telephone sign in very easy. Only issue : when I went online at U-Haul initially the computer indicated that there was no cargo van at this location. I called Dean who informed me that the computer was wrong and he did hava a van and booked it for me. So the computer info was incorrect.and would have made me go to a location further away. Thank goodness I called Dean the location itself.

My original reservation was in Neptune my van was not there, Uhaul rerouted me to Wanamassa when they promised a van would be waiting, I was there on 15 min. But the van was not there. I was again redirected to Oakhurst whereafter going 10 miles out of my way and a lost hour I finally got a van. This is totally unacceptable. I don't know if I'll ever use Uhaul again.

I own a business so I always rent from your company, I rent a van about 2 to 3 times a month. This time it was snowing and the roads are wet and dirty every, any after I bought back the the van your guy called the next day telling me that the front of the van is dirty, and I have 2 choices One is to charge me $50 , or I have to go back to him and he will bring a bucket and a sponge for me to clean the truck!!! That's insane!!! And disrespect for your customer!! Anyway he changed me the $50 !!! You need worker with respect and manners!!!

My reservation was somehow incorrect in your system. I was left a rude message for missing my pick up time which you somehow mismanaged and was talked down to by a representative on the phone despite having email confirmation for the correct date/time of rental pickup.

WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE! The truck I rented ended up breaking down. I was stuck for 3 hours waiting for the tow company, my entire day was ruined. U-haul and the dealer I rented the truck from were not willing to compensate me for this horrible experience. In fact they wanted to charge me for bringing the truck back late. I will never rent another u-haul again. U-haul if you want to make this right look into my roadside file my claim number is 1955062. I was stuck for 3 hours and missed my sons baseball game. Thanks for making a routine rental experience the worst experience of my life and not giving a shit about it. That's world class customer service, cheers to you!

Local representatives were fine. Internet order was a nightmare. Location and time was changed. I was supposed to receive a call the day before pick up. I did not, in fact, I had to call three times. Representatives were of no help. I was promised call backs which I did not receive. On a scale of 1-10 my experience was a zero. Further, in travel we had a blow out tire on the auto transport. I understand these things happen. After, 1.5 hours trying to reach reach roadside assistance we finally talked to a representative who apologized for the the wait. He said we'll get someone one there within 30 minutes and he would text me the arrival time. I get the text in a few minutes stating the arrival time would be in 90 minutes. Again, the local people were fine. Roadside was less than 20 minutes getting back on the road. This is only part of the story. I will never, never, never use your web to order again. Once I did the web, I was locked out of speaking with any local representatives. The service was beyond terrible. In all, we were stranded on the road side nearly 4 hours

I have rented U-Haul on several occasions. I have never rented a dirtier and poorly kept van than the one I rented on 07/25/2020. It didn't have the equipment I required and that cost me another $40 to rent somewhere else. I will rent again, but not from that place.

The price that is advertised for a 9 ft van is $19.95. We used it for 25 miles, our total charged was $65.00 and change. You should have free mileage for short distances.

My experience was poor - not because of a location - but because of the constant errors and miscommunications. I picked up the truck at this location, on 5/31, (being told where to get it the night before), and apparently this location can't find your phone if you have Verizon (the customer service rep told me this is an ongoing issue for this location). Verizon is a pretty big carrier, so that's a HUGE problem. I had check-in online, when I made the reservation, but I had to call to get checked in and get the code for my key - even though apparently, that day, the systems were down. I get the truck - do my move - all is fine. I go to return it to the location I was given at the time I made my reservation (5/26). That day, I got a call, to confirm my reservation, and the customer service woman told me that the pick-up location would likely change, based on availability of the truck, and they'd get as close as they could to my preference location. She said the drop-off location doesn't change. Based on that information, I left my car at the drop-off location, so that I could get home when I was done. When I go online to do my drop-off, it has me bringing it to a different location. Clearly, I cant do that now since my car is with me at my current location: 1st Century Storage 1800 Rte 35 S Oakhurst, NJ 07755 I call customer service because it was just after 5:00, and the 848 number was closed. I speak to person number 1 who tells me she can't change it. I let her know that's not an answer I can work with, so I need to talk to a manager. I finally get to speak to Ashley Mosley (who was so nice and accommodating). After some time on hold, she says it's taken care of, and I send her an email with pictures of the truck - the mileage - and me putting the key in the drop box (at 6:03 on 5/31). I then see a charge for keeping the truck for an extra day ($40). I call to get that taken care of, and it takes someone 1-3 business days to get back to me to get my money back since they entered the time in at 1:30ish and I actually picked up the truck at 10:30 am ON THE SAME DAY AS DROPPING IT OFF. I had the truck for about 8 hours. It's not that I don't recommend this location. I just don't recommend this company for moving. Constant errors and it made my moving process even more complicated. Still dealing with moving a week after I rented the truck. Terrible.

Thank God for this location. The APP would not work and the process to use the APP is ridiculous it asks for an additional contact # but doesn't tell you they are calling that person and they need to be available to answer or your pick up fails and you can NOT get the truck. There isn't even a back up using the 800#. The APP must have been down as well cause it would say network error. Crazy. I switched to in person and the guy inside the store was great. .

ALL of the u-haul staff on phones were extremely helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. My problem was with the gentleman at the facility. I had to speak with him on 2 different occasions and he could not have been more rude or unhelpful. It's a shame, it is a beautiful new location but he alone will turn business away.

My original contract with another local dealer which I handled 3 weeks prior in person, fell through as that dealer no longer handled rentals. No notification was given. Received a call that the dealer was closing due to Coronavirus. Sent my wife to pay for the truck being as I was working. Sent her to original dealer, had to drive to new dealer. The new contract was different due to time of pick up. Sent email, Area field manager was more than accommodating to agree to original contract. Other than the truck not being that clean, it was new. Might have hit the perfect storm with all that's going on. Would give this location another try.

Be honest about your trucks. If you have issues with a truck don't rent it out!!! You gave my family a truck that was defaulted and made us pay for it!!! This was the worst experience I've ever had!!! I would not refer anyone here!!

I did not like that fact that if I the customer had a code pick up, where you enter a code and there was difficulty and you called customer service to assist there's nothing you can do but recommend another location until the office opens. The experience I had with Uhaul was terrible!!! I finally got the key to the truck I reserved with the help of the storage unit manager and got the truck, only to have a message on my phone waiting for me by Uhaul letting me know they didn't have a contract with me and they are going to call the police and report the truck stolen. Message left by a woman named Susan who I called in the morning about the code I was having trouble with. Then I was charged for extra insurance fee of $14.00 which I did not asked for and I had to put in a claim to receive a refund. Terrible service from Uhaul. Horrible experience that your company was going to call the police on me and left it on my voicemail. At this point I would not recommend Uhaul to anyone!

DEAN was wonderful with the return process however I had a horrible experience with dispatch/uhaul for poor customer service, rude, releasing the incorrect truck with no equipment, not willing to fix the situation etc. Valerie was unbelievably rude, pushy and not helpful at all. Cost me more money bc of lack of supplies due to her incompetence. Extremely disappointed with uhaul service.

Nobody was there for my 8 am pickup. So I had to make a new reservation at another location for 11 AM. When I returned the van at 2:30 PM nobody was there for the return even though the facilities were supposed to be open until 4 PM. When I used the dropbox for the return the scanner did not work so I could not video the return. The van was fine but the service was awful.

I got charged for Gas incrorectly. I was told to make sure 7/8th were in the car, which i did. I was charged for having 3/4ths full which is false! VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED in U-Haul for allowing that to happen. There were also a ton of "hidden fees" in the final bill I would never recommand U-Haul to a friend after this experience

I am not sure what U-haul policy is, or if rates have changed, etc. As I havent moved in four years, I was not sure what to expect. But I do know that in total, my last U-haul reservation was less than 70 dollars with the insurance added. This time my total was over 100, and that is without calculating the gas I put in. In my opinion, $0.99c per mile is utterly ridiculous. By the time that truck needs to be replaced, you'll be able to buy three of them. It is a racket. And the reason I am leaving that info here is because I am not sure how U-hauls central branding operates. I don't know whether that is standard, or if I was just gouged by the storage location that I rented my truck from, which was chosen FOR me by the U-haul rep i spoke to over the phone. I was not informed of pricing or mileage charges by the rep I spoke to, either. I have no way of knowing. There are not clearly defined standards or pricing in place. So I could never recommend that location to anyone. And next time I move, I will be hiring professionals.
