Hours were listed as open at 8am. Door open, no one there, someone had to be called. Took 30 minutes to get out the door then, it was 9am. Girl who waited on me was falling asleep at the computer. Forgot to give me the key. Had to go back to the office. Horrible service.

The location was perfectly fine, what was a complete failure was sending us on a 75 mile 2 hour (ONE WAY) trip to pick up the truck. The cost of fuel alone was ridiculous, not to mention the 3 hours of our day that 2 people had to give up.

I have rented trucks from this location before and they are always so accommodating and helpful. They helped pull the truck up to where it was accessible for me, gave me clear instructions on how to return it, and made sure my vehicle was in a good location so it wouldn't be blocked in after hours. A++++++

Very bad experience at the busy bee location at Valparaiso IN. I reserved/paid online for a truck and dolly but it was not available during pickup. When I asked about my reservation, the lady was very rude and replied that they were given to 1st come 1st serve. When I asked about what is the point of reservation and paying in advance , she replied that they cannot have unlimited supply of dollies. No body expects unlimited supply but if a reservation cannot be fulfilled, she should be apologetic, not rude. Uhaul should hire decent employees for front desk.

This pickup was horrible. Not because of the place but because of uhaul itself. We made the reservation and then received a call at noon (our pickup time) saying there was no truck to pick up. That they would call the person who had the truck and they would also look for an alternative pickup location. They called back stating there was no truck available at all. That we had two options. Either pick the truck up in Valparaiso use it for the move and then drive the truck back to Valparaiso or pick the truck up in Joliet (where we moved to) drive to Valparaiso load up and drive back to Joliet. So with that being said it's a 2hr drive and I was only 30 min away from Valparaiso so was not going to drive back to Joliet to get a truck and was not going to pick up in Valparaiso unload and have to drive it back. And on top of it all pay for the mileage (almost 100 miles each way). I rent from uhaul often and this was horrible.

Busy Bee stepped in to rescue us--from the UHaul reservation system, which is appallingly poor. We 'reserved' a truck months in advance for Aug 1, when we had movers and a cleaner scheduled. We got a call the night before telling us that UHaul had no trucks available until 36 hours after our reservation. To my exasperation, the UHaul representative we spoke to did not regard this as in any way an error on UHaul's part. All that we had reserved, according to her, was a telephone call, and UHaul had honored that part of the reservation. I told her that I would need to look elsewhere before agreeing to delay our move, took down her number, and hung up. An hour later (after checking with some other companies), I called back and was put on hold. I next tried the chat feature on the UHaul website, through which I learned that the representative I had spoken to had *cancelled* our reservation (which I had not asked her to do). Back on the phone, I was on hold *for another two hours* and never was able to get through to anyone. Finally I hung up and drove to Busy Bee. I explained the situation to the U-Haul representative there. She asked, 'Is this a one-way trip or a return trip?' I told her I was happy to return the truck. 'Then we have a truck for you right now,' she said, and we were set. Unless and until UHaul changes its centralized reservation system such that UHaul actually guarantees the availability of a truck at the time it has been reserved, I will never rent from UHaul and I will discourage anyone I know who is moving from renting from UHaul.
