I was told that the truck was cleaned, however, it was not and I had to clean it first to be able to move a mattress in the truck. I took pictures with my cell phone if you would like to see them. You can reimburse me for the additional cleaning that I had to do. Also the requested furniture pads were not available.

Nothing to do with the location but the websit would not let me check in once I arrived. The link kept taking me in circles

Friendly Automotive definitely lives up to their name! Everybody is very kind. This was my first time renting a cargo trailer from U-Haul and the entire experience was a breeze. From the rental, to the pick up, to the drop off it couldn't have gone any smoother. I rented a 5 x 8 enclosed trailer to haul a couch and it was the perfect size and the trailer was very east to tow. I will definitely use the U-Haul location at Friendly Automotive West next time I need a trailer.

I Was unable to get in the truck due to a lack of adequate steps on it's side. Had to let my son in law take it.

My only complaint with the location is the truck parking area. There is really no area. For the average driver, it is impossible to back it in to on of the spots. Having a bigger parking area would make it easier for the customers to park when returning the truck. Truck was very clean, customer service was very friendly. ps, I didn't even try to back it in.

Just the right size truck in just the right location. The daily charge is reasonable, but $1.59 per mile seems steep.

This location does not support 24/7 pickup despite what UHaul says. I wasted an hour waiting for the owner of the location to arrive before I could get the keys to the truck.

I spent a half hour trying to upload a photo of the odometer on your app. It wouldn't let me upload a photo and the photo I took with the app didn't upload. I ended up going to the website to manually upload it. Using the app wasn't easy at all.

Good location close to my house, but for a trailer, kinda tight. Also, tried to return last night but didn't see any cameras. I was worried about the trailer getting stolen, so I kept it until morning.

It's hard to back anything into this super small place. They have to many junk cars sitting around. They didn't help us hook the trailer up this time.

This is the second time I've had the pleasure of receiving Chelsea's stellar customer service for Uhaul rentals at Friendly Automotive in Yakima. She is knowledgeable, personable, and efficient. I consider using Uhaul for future projects because of the quality service, products, and pricing. Thank you.

The whole experience was horrible. We reserved a truck to be picked up in Ellensburg , they called the day before and said they didn't have a truck and we would have to go to Yakima to pick up I don't feel like we should have tp pay the mileage between Ellensburg and Yakima and the additional mile as from Ellensburg back to Yakima ( approx 80 miles ) this was Ellensburg U-Haul error. Furthermore when we picked up the truck in Yakima we said we only needed it for 24 hours we asked the owner what time we Need to have it back on Sunday he said it doesn't matter because we aren't open anyway. When we got the bill we were charge for today. I feel we are due a refund for the 80 miles and a refund for 1 day . Also when we made a stop after picking it up we noticed the gas cap was not secure there we were losing gas. If I don't here from you within 24 hours I will be filing a review on yelp as well

Not a reflection on Friendly Automotive (who were professional and prepared), I would never recommend U-haul to a friend due to the reservation policy (it is not a reservation, despite the name... Only a "request"). You are not guaranteed a vehicle, truck size, or location... And they will not notify you of the lack of availability until 24-48 hours prior to pickup date. Which means, if you have a set moving date, you are just out of luck.

The pick up location was great. However, U-Haul overall was not helpful. I had the worse experience. I was called the day before our rental and was told the only truck available was located 2hours in the wrong direction. I then received poor customer service from the U-Haul rep. This was an extreme inconvenience. The fact that you say a truck is available and then its not but then you don't offer any other help is just unacceptable.
