This was a pretty trying UHaul experience from the get go, from having my first reservation unfilled to ending up with a truck bigger than I needed/wanted to getting dinged for a fuel cost when I have a photo of the fuel gauge that had me spot on where I believed it needed to be (3/8 of a tank).

Not related to the pickup location U haul never gave us the pick up or drop off location until we were on the phone for over 1 hour calling the 1800 number and then the location regional coordinator. The emails and text informed us that what we requested may not be available and that was the ONLY communication until we called to confirm. Would you consider refunding part of our expense for the additional work we had to do just to pickup and drop off. We were told that this is uncommon. I am not sure what happened to our reservation.

I was unable to use the web-based return function due to your slow computer functions. Also unable to get through to a customer service rep on a Sunday evening -- waited on hold for ten minutes then gave up and expected to have to pay the $20.00 penalty. The people at Community Self Storage were very understanding and commented that they realized how bad the automated drop-off routine is and did not charge me. I rent a truck approximately twelve time in a normal year and hope you will get your company stuff together enough to match the superior service from Community Self Storage and make the corporate experience more reasonable for your loyal returning customers.

Mark was friendly, flexible, and accommodating. The customer service at this location is nothing short of excellent. Most of our moving day was stressful, and we had a ton of setbacks, but Mark worked with us to make sure we had the best experience possible. I highly recommend this location for all moving needs.

These ratings only ask about locations, not about the uhaul customer service experience as a whole. My recent experience was very poor and left me extremely frustrated with uhaul. Not only was my reservation bumped the day before my pick up, when I went to the second location (13 miles from the original), there was no equipment there and the people noticed my reservation had been double booked. I had to drive an additional 45 miles out of my way to pick up a truck. Out of “courtesy” they gave me a larger truck with a discount, however by the time the additional fees were added, I ended up paying more than my original. Then when I requested a later drop off time free of charge for the aggravation, I was told no. I spoke with some manager who identified herself as the highest level person I could speak with and she “couldn't help me”. But she did say there was an hour grace period. That was a lie. I was charged an extra day for a 20 minute delay past my 1:00 drop off time. I relocated from Virginia to Maryland and drove through horrible traffic to get here, encountering time delays. They knew ahead of time I was requesting a later drop off but decided not to extend customer service. What do reservations matter if customers are going to lose their bookings, have to drive nearly an hour out of the way to pick up equipment, then get charged a full extra day when the customer has already requested an extension? Oh and to boot, the size truck, being larger than I requested, led to my items shifting out of place and falling. And I was still charged more for it. This company does not follow good customer service practices and I will carry my stuff on my back and walk before renting from uhaul again. You've lost a customer and I'm going to tell everyone I know about my experience.

Mark was great and the 15' truck worked out perfect. The only thing that caught me off guard was the 10% tax Virginia charges for renting a moving truck which was applied at pickup, so it would be nice to know ahead of time.

The U-Haul application need to be stronger, and tell teh renter to wait at times. In the obtaining and the returning, the application started over at the beginning after I had entered almost everything, probably because I was supposed to wait but did not know that. Truck was old and steering was wandering. Truck was great in every other way.

I think you guys should ALWAYS provide a lock to lock up the trucks that you rent. If someone doesn't return the lock, then they should pay for it, with a penalty attached.

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.
