I have used this location as a pickup and drop-off location several times in the past 2 years. It has alway been a great spot. Contactless pickup using the App was very easy.

The U-Haul App didn't recognize me at this location which made it frustrating to quickly check-in and return. I needed to call customer service to unlock the lockbox. I like the mobile check-in and return idea but I've never had a successful experience with the mobile App. It was a little scary to have it still not working when I returned the truck at night, I tried the App several time and eventually dropped the key in door slot.

Nothing, they were great. I showed up 3 hours early as they were opening with other customers there and was taken care of professionally, quickly, and with a smile. Definite recommend to a friend/family.

Everything was great. The U-haul employee were really friendly and willing to help. That impressed me is that when I returned back at ~7:30pm (while the location is working until 5:00pm) , there still was a person who took my key and sent me a receipt. I really appreciate his hard work. Location is also very convenient, there are many places for parking and easy to access from US-29. The truck I got was in good conditions and clean. I would give more than 5 stars if it was possible. Thanks so much.

Excellent service, convenient location, well-lit, easily accessed, and best of all - managed by some extremely kind people! The family who takes care of this facility were always available, perfectly professional, yet at the same time - friendly, patient and helpful. We highly recommend this business, whether it’s for a place to put your things, a place to rent a truck to move your things, or to enjoy a putt putt golf game! :) We thank you all so very much - it’s been a pleasure.

Reservation was changed for a second time now having me drop off at a third location. This location was fine. I will not be renting from U-Haul again. I have used UHaul probably a dozen times for short and long distance moves but the customer service for this reservation with multiple location changes. The first change was to a location 25 miles from my house. The move was probably about 5 miles roundtrip so ridiculous to pay all that extra money and time. I had to talk to 2 people to get to someone who could make arrangements for me to pick up a larger truck at a closer location. Upon request she adjusted the charge to the amount in my original reservation. Then the reservation changed such that the self check in feature didn't work resulting in an hour long phone call...mostly on hold (3x) before I was able to get the truck.

Dealer was great ...as was your help desk but I do think it's problematic that in a market as big as Charlottsville that you don't have a local emergency service ( we had a damaged rim and a punctured tire and it took close to 6 hours to get it serviced)...not exactly punctual...again no complaints otherwise...

u haul web site is cumbersome and time consuming; web site quit twice and little help from pick-up location where lawn mower and busy street were next to service window. It took over one hour to pick up the truck, time which should be available for moving. Your new web-based approach is terrible customer service. Web site works particularly poorly and often will not open with Safari.

The first time experience with self check in was frustrating. The one line chat person for customer service for the online check-in was poor. Luckily a representative of this location was on site and was extremely helpful. I believe he said his name was either MARK or Mike Hammond.

We drove 65 miles. Before to drop off the truck we filled the tank with gas. It turned out 9 gallons! For 65 miles. That's not right.

I would make the no contact check in less time consuming and the phone verification part is the most difficult part people aren't always available to answer the phone and then to have to wait for a answer is very very time consuming . I was on site at 10:45 for a 11:00 check in and didn't get checked in until 11:30 this was entirely too time consuming. I should have just selected the regular check in option.

It was very difficult to get the u-haul after arriving at the facility. The process was very lengthy and had many hiccups. There was no one on site and the website was clunky. I could not get the location setting to work on my phone, so I had to use a friend. There was no mention of needing a second form of ID, and information like this as well as a photo of my ID should have been asked when I first started the reservation. The customer care representative took her time doing the paperwork on her end, and did not provide any updates. The first secondary contact was rejected, and we were never told. In the end, it took about 45 min to get the u-haul, which made me late to my next appointment. The u-haul also did not have a full tank of gas, which was hard to measure when refilling it. I would not recommend anyone going to this location after hours. There should really be someone on site on Saturdays when most people are in need of a u-haul.

It would have been really helpful if I could have extended my rental another day. I called and asked about extending the rental and I was informed that it was not available. If it had been available for another day it would have helped me a lot. There was also a $20 change that I don't know what it was for. I'm sure that if I had read all of the fine print it would have mentioned it, but I find that to be a little bit deceptive when you advertise rentals for $19.99 but it actually costs more than twice that. I wish you would just be honest and upfront about the cost.

I was having some difficulty with my UHaul app to sign my vehicle out. The attendant, Faith, was more than helpful. She went out of her way to ensure that I had everything in order. I also needed her help later in the day, and she came through in a stellar fashion. I have always found this UHaul facility good, but Faith made it stellar.

The location is great and the guy who worked there was extremely helpful. However, I checked in and picked up the truck via the U-Haul app, and the wait time was a bit long (~10 mins waiting for approval). I think it's fine if I could know the approximate wait time in advance, but without knowing, I was wondering if something was wrong while I stared at my “waiting for approval” screen for 10 mins.

The people here are great, and the truck was clean and fueled and ready to go. Locally speaking, no complaints--the place is well-run and well-staffed. What made this a miserable experience was Uhaul's central processing. I stood/squatted outside for 30+ minutes in the sun waiting for someone somewhere to clear me to go. People were waiting at my apartment to help load up, but the online process was agonizingly slow. We did everything right--I did the online check-in beforehand, had all my documents ready, and my spouse was ready to answer the phone immediately when Uhaul called to confirm that I'm a real person or whatever. Uhaul was just way behind and took way longer than what's acceptable, considering it costs $700+ for this with insurance and all.
