THERE IS NO POINT IN MAKING A RESERVATION because UHAUL DOES NOT HONOUR RESERVATIONS. I had to drive 3.5 hours to pick up a trailer from another location, even though I had reserved one in my location a month prior. This added considerable time and stress to an already stressful day, not to mention exorbitant gas costs that were not reimbursed. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH UHAUL CORPORATION.

I am very thankful that I contacted this location via telephone to book and then to confirm my booking to get better service then I did and would have going through disbatch. Booking 3 weeks in advance I still did not get the truck I wanted on the day I wanted nor did I get the car dolly however this location did everything they could to accommodate my needs.

If a customer requests a pick up location in one city, its absolutely ridiculous that they have to travel 2 hours down the highway to a completely different city to pick up a trailer. To top it off, the customer service was absolutely atrocious.

i am from revelstoke and had to book this trailer thru salmon arm which was a good experience. what was the bad experience and probably never going to rent again is that i had to return the trailer which was 29.99 for a 24hr period back to salmon arm......so 4 hours out of my way because the drop off where i live is an additional 1400 dollars......yes!! 1400 canadian dollars to drop it off in revelstoke which is 70ish miles away from salmon arm. this business is deserves to go out of business or........fix it!! i will never rent again until fixed!!

First of all, I am less than impressed with Uhual's customer service. I had reserved a pull trailer 2 months before my pick up date. The lady who took my reservation mixed the pick up date, not once but twice! She put it in a month too early. Then I get a text message the day before pick up telling me that my pick up location has changed. Instead of picking it up in Vernon (where I reserved it!) I would have to drive to Salmon Arm to pick it up. This is ludicrous! What is the point of making a reservation!?! I was not happy that I had to rearrange my days to include driving 1.5hr to go pick up a trailer and back track 1.5hr to my loading spot. I will never use or recommend Uhual.

When I dropped off the rental trailer I inquired about a reimbursement for the cost of the light cord that I had to purchase. I was informed that they didn't reimburse as they have stock their own cords.

Booked pickup in salmon arm. No notifications received of any change. Then the day of reservation, attended to pick up vehicle and were advised pickup location changed to a different city. No texts and no emails were ever received to notify of the location change. Very inconvenient. Rep at salmon arm store was very helpful and was able to move the reservation back to salmon arm. Will never book online again with uhaul.

I just sent an e-mail at service@uhaul.com to complain about the lady (Shelley I think her name), who would not let me use the public washroom even though it was open. Unacceptable. Please see my e-mail.

A month ago, I reserved a Uhaul truck in Kamloops to move my daughter 1 way from Kamloops to West Kelowna. I even spoke with a representative from the actual Uhaul center in Kamloops twice to confirm my truck would be there. The night before I was going to drive to Kamloops to pick it up, I got a call from Uhaul's main office telling me that my truck was ready for pickup in an entirely different city (Salmon Arm). I thought this was a joke or a very bad mistake but then found out that it is normal for Uhaul to make you go to a different city to pick up your rental vehicle. At that point I couldn't cancel and book with another company since it was the end of the month, and everything was booked solid, so I was forced to go to Salmon Arm early the next day to get the truck. You would never be allowed to do this to a customer in any other business. For instance, what if I booked a hotel room in Kamloops and they called me and told me that my room was available in a different city???? When I picked up the truck from Shelly in Salmon Arm, it only had ¼ tank of gas in it. I drove it to Kamloops but when filling it up with gas to get me to West Kelowna I had no idea how much gas I needed to drive it full over the Coquahalla highway to my destination. Since there are very few gas stations along the way I filled up the tank ($140). I ended up only using half of this so unfortunately, I left the truck in Kelowna with over $80 of free gas. Uhaul should start you off with a full tank of gas and ask that you fill it up before returning it so you know exactly how much you need.

I think it was bogus that I had to pay for a full day at the end of an almost 2 week rental and I had to have the unit back by noon because it was the end of the month and they didn't want to miss out on another customer. Can u say double bill? Hello I just paid you over $1250. Does that mean squat? Not very honest if u ask me.

I made my reservation 6 weeks in advance of pickup. I requested a pick up in Vernon BC and specified a certain location. However, I was aware that I may have to pickup at a different location. I had flown to BC from Ontario to pick up my belongings and move back to Ontario. I had no vehicle and planned on getting a cab to the location. The agent who made the original reservation made it for the wrong month. I had to revise the booking to reflect the proper month. The evening before pickup I received an email telling me that the pickup location was Salmon Arm this is 64 km from where I am, with no car. I called the 800 number and was very upset Taunya in Port Moody was the unlucky service rep who got mey call. Long story short, after many tears and her best efforts, I had to go to Salmon Arm or I didn't have a truck. She did provide 100km for the return trip to Vernon and offered an extra day. I declined the day as I knew I would not need it. I was able to get a ride but this was at an inconvenience to my friend as he had to work. So, we timed the trip so I would be at the pick up location upon their opening, which was 1/2 hour sooner than the scheduled pick up time. Unfortunately the agent was not at her desk and ready for work at 8:30 and indicated that I was wrong for being early. She also did not care that I had to accomodate a person giving me a ride. I sent a picture to corporate of the broken tail light on the truck. It was broken upon pickup and clearly marked with a sticker. The truck needed a frontend alignment or some other work as it had a mild vibration and pulled to the right. This is not the first time I used one way UHaul. My first experience was exemplary and I am very disappointed with this last transaction. The only good experience was the return of the truck in Peterborough.
