The customer service was fine - quick and professional, and the van was in very good shape. HOWEVER I am entirely unhappy with UHaul. The advertised price for the van was $19.99. I only rented it for FOUR HOURS, without insurance, and ended up being charged over $140!!!? This is an outrageous price for such a short rental. It is also a complete bait and switch. Based on this experience I will not be using UHaul again any time soon.

From the start at pickup the key was not in the correct box. Wasted 1 hour to realize truck key was in the back of the truck. No hand truck or pads as requested. Truck had less then a quarter tank so I had to fuel up wasting more time

The checkin process didn't work while using Chrome on my phone. The "location" functionality did not work as expected. It was only after reviewing the "help" page did I realize the app was only developed/tested on Safari. I switched to Safari and it worked. As a software engineer specializing in UI development, I would call that user experience lame.

The tires were bald, there were summer tires on a huge truck in the winter. We couldn't back out of the driveway, we were stuck. We also slid around the entire ride. Tire maintenance needs to be prioritized.

The 15ft truck that I had reserved was not available due to the previous customer returning late. The U-Haul representative at the site worked to find us a replacement. Eventually we decided on a 10ft and that was able to handle the apartment move, with a little help from two SUV's. How can you ensure that the reserved truck is available at the pick up site? Maybe leave more time between rentals?

Picking up the key at the business across the street was confusing because I wasn't made aware of it in advance.

The personnel and equipment is ok but the system is not good. I was charged for two days and I only has the vehicle for 20 hours. It is hustle to get the refund... Phone calls and waiting period. Get the system corrected.

The pickup procedure was very confusing and poorly organized. It was not communicated that we needed to do a mobile check-in to access the truck. We first attempted a regular pickup, then when we found the site without any employees, we canceled the reservation and rebooked with a mobile check-in. The trucks were not located on the Beacon Car Wash lot but rather in the corner of the parking lot across the street. Instructions to obtain the car keys were not written in full sentences. There were car key lock boxes at the Beacon Car Wash but the car keys were confusingly located in the back of the trucks themselves. The locks on the lockboxes and the trucks were similarly labeled, which exacerbated the confusion. Our attempts to communicate with UHaul support were disastrous. The agent "helping" me called my secondary contact but hung up after 5 seconds. The agent never called me, despite having my number. The app was spotty and would not properly refresh. Lastly, the drop-off procedures didn't indicate what to do with the car keys after the rental. I left the car keys in the lockbox.

The radio did not work. Other than that, everything was fine. (it would have been nice if the truck had a ramp, but I guess that's not a feature of the 10-foot trucks)

It's not easy to locate the desk where the U Haul operation is run out of. There are no signs. The truck was beyond old. Around 150,000 miles old. The strain on the engine was audible.

Location was closed upon arrival. Had to strangely go to a grocery store across the street to speak with customer service to pick-up van. Also technology is a mess. Takes forever to book online and then the ridiculous follow-up call to actually book is insane. Then ended up having to pick-up at a location 20 minutes from where I selected.

Clean van. Helpful people. My one complaint is a location of the key food uhaul counter should be included as a map beside the key boxes. Took me a long time to get help when I could not get the lock open.

Truck was not in a easy spot to get to meaning very tight to get out of another truck was behind mines not even a uhaul one.Also this location did not have any hand trucks which I had requested which made me late for my appointment. I had to try and work without it.I called uhaul and the closet location was 15 or more mins away over the bridge and in another county.

Everything fine w service and provider—the truck itself has an issue. Upon pick up and throughout rental a warning bell is activated and the message “right rear door is open”—this is accompanied by a sound like the locks unlocking and locking again —I tried repeatedly to close the rear doors and lock them—they appeared to be secure—but the warning bell and the sound of the door locks opening closing continued.

The only downside is that when I returned it, the parking space I took it from was taken and there were no spaces available. There was also no indication of what to do in that situation and no Uhaul staff person on hand to ask.

I couldn't pick up van on time because your web site for self pick-up not working properly. I had to wait over 30 minutes from the original pic-up time to get the key from U-haul rep. What's the point of early p/u if it is not working. On dash was message that right back door are not close properly and dome light on the front and in the back was on the whole time. The car has only lil over 5000 miles on it......

This is the second time that it has taken an hour to check in with U-haul in the past 3 months. The last time, I had to drive 20 minutes away to rent the van I had confirmed to pick up closer, at my own expense for the extra mileage. This time, the app closed out my reservation before I was able to even finish checking in. I was charged twice for the reservation, just so I could leave after an hour. This issue is still somehow open as well. I also had to wait an hour to checkout, as the Uhaul app was showing as completed in the vendor's system but not in mine. It says something to a lack of training and quality control here that I have experienced this BOTH times I've chosen to use U-haul. Additionally, I accidentally called the roadside assistance line and was given complete attitude on the phone for calling the wrong number. The last time I was on the line with a representative while having to drive 20 minutes away, I was also talked to with an attitude. I will never be using U-haul again, and plan on placing a claim for both occurrences with the BBB.

Please desígnate specific spots for use by returning renters. The parking lot was full and it was not easy to squeeze the rental van in the only available spot.

This company always over charges. Home Depot has a better truck rental then this company. How the hack, do you charge always charge double then what the actual cost was. First I registered on my phone checked in on my phone and it still took me a half hour to get the keys to this U-Haul truck. Then my estimated amount was $59 after I took very care of this shit truck washed it and brought it back you guys want to charge me $162. Hilarious very funny I'm disputing the whole entire charge until you guys realize that you can't do it so good luck. If this company has been stealing money from people for this long I have no idea why you guys are still in business it is baffling. Every U-Haul I've ever been to has shitty customer service

When I went to return the truck, before 5pm, the entrance gate was closed, and the exit gate was half closed. The truck barely fit in the gate, and I had to drive the wrong way in order to get the truck on to the lot.

Customer service was located in a Key Foods supermarket and the person to receive the truck was not around. It took me a half an hour to find the place since the lot is across the street at the carwash. No one was around to help at the car wash when I was asking who to give the keys too. Bad experience again!
