Took almost 2 hours to check out the truck, between staff showing up late and then not knowing how to process the check out. Staff was yelling at each other and me during the process. Very unprofessional. Terrible experience. Due to the delay i had to recoordinate people helping with packing and interrupt multiple peoples weekend schedules due to the delay. I also would not have been able to check out with the app as the key was not returned to the Proper lock box after prior customer used the truck. I will look for other companies to help with truck rentals in the future.

The u-haul itself & customer service were all top notch. This location was lovely to work with. Highly recommend. However, the online check-in didn't work. The online reservations also got changed the day before, which was fine for me, but it just seems like you're better off doing everything in person or over the phone.

The lady helped me but it took a while for her to find my reservation.

Well it was that bad for service but they charge me a lot for the mileage $1.14 each mile but what I see was $.79 cents per mile and also I can think about how I get the truck for quick while I needed next day thank you

Everything went smooth and to plan. My store contact was friendly, quick, thorough, and efficient. Thanks for making a truck rental so smooth and convenient. I am a huge U-Haul fan.

I like the self check in however, the process depends on the smartphone web browser. It would be better if there is an app to do the self check in and check out. Overall, Great Service!

Horrible experience. Truck wasn't at location that was sent in email. When I was able to locate the truck in a totally separate lot and obtain lock box key, there was no key. What made this situation exponentially miserable was customer service experience. Since the wait to talk telephonically was over 20 min, I utilized chat feature. Replies to my messages took at minimum 5 minutes. It took over 45 minutes to pick up my truck, as I was waiting outside in the heat. I'm not sure if it's a staffing issue, but I will not be utilizing Uhaul for future rental. Moving is already stressful enough and the whole debacle with trying to get my identity verified, as well as extremely slow response times with customer services representatives only exacerbated it.

Very easy drop off, except it was raining. Might be nice to have a covered area to complete the drop off and then move to a parking spot.

Everything worked well. It was raining heavily when I returned the van and my phone had lost power so I was unable to complete the in line return procedure. Sorry about that.

There was only 1 employee working on-site on the day (Saturday) that I needed to return my equipment. The employee did a great job and worked fast and efficient my rental return however it would have been smoother and quicker if she had at least 1 other employee to help process the U-Haul customers.

When I picked up the U-Haul it had a little over a quarter tank of gas. I ended up not putting gas in it myself because the needle hardly moved at all when I was ready to drop it off. I just think getting charged a $30 refueling fee plus the $29 of gas they put in the tank is unfair. In the contract you only have to have the needle where it was when you picked it up. If the tank is full when you pick it up, return it as such. That's on top of paying $170 the previous day for the rental which seems a bit steep. although convenient, I'll probably look for a more budget friendly option next time.

Just make sure the key is in the lock box as described, my key was not.

This was the first time I used online check in and while it involves taking several pictures it was relatively easy. It would be nice if Uhaul would change their rates to include half day rentals at a cheaper rate so when a customer has to extend rental for part of a day longer they don't have to pay a full day's rental fee.

Leslie C.

They left me a truck that only had 1/4 tank of gas.

Thomas W.
Rating:

I ordered a furniture dolly with my rental that I was told would be with the truck at the time of pickup. The dolly was not included but I was still charged for it. I noted the absence of the dolly during the checkout and was told customer service would follow up with me regarding the charge. Nobody followed up and the charge was not refunded.

I really don't think there was any reason to come into the uhaul office.I completed the online pickup twice. Especially during the Corona Virus crisis.

The lady couldn't be bothered to ensure the trailer was hooked up properly and then it came on on 35W, the busiest freeway in the city!! This was a horrible and terrifying experience, the GM of the Uptown Minneapolis location was amazing though. She saw me on the side of the road with the trailer disconnected and helped me through everything.

While the answers to the above questions were positive, I do have a negative comment that I will be addressing in a separate letter. The van that I rented was checked out as if I had a full tank and so it appeared from the needle on the gauge. I only drove 13 miles but when I went to top off the tank I had to put in 4.467 gallons at a cost of $10.49. I would have expected no matter how poor the Econoline Van mileage is rated to have to put in less than 1 gallon to top of the tank and return full. So I believe I paid more than $8 too much for the rental.

I'd suggest you start by REALLY inspecting returned equipment before you re-rent it. The truck we got was dirty both outside and inside (e.g., the windows were smeared and there was a splat of dried ketchup on the driver's seat). When I looked inside the cargo area, the previous renter had left a personal dolly and other material, which the attendant quickly claimed as his own. The attendant was a nice enough guy, but he was rather slow and lazy, more interested in shooting the breeze about where I was from and why I was renting the truck than helping clear the snow off the windshield or helping carry my blankets and dolly out to the truck. He even grumbled about it when I asked for little help the second time. Lastly, the truck itself was fine in most respects, but the cabin was SERIOUSLY loud from road noise. There appears to be NO insulation at all at the back of the cabin.

Was given a rental that a customer had just returned- the woman at the desk was rude and kept "sighing" gave me a key that did not work - then said "just take this one" (one that had just been returned) Did not do walk around and there was a cracked bumper then told me I had not returned the equipment Could not get anyone to come look at the van and when I returned it there was no one there- Was one HORRIBLE experience !!!

Marielle F.

I had to wait an hour to be able to rent the truck, because it was so slow and then the system ended up not taking my (legally valid) temporary license because I had renewed my license recently. Then someone else showed up claiming they had rented the truck, was very rude to us, and tried to talk us out of the truck. The app was very slow, and the entire process took 90 minutes, which is absurd for trying to rent a truck.

No lock was provided for the cargo door. I was suggested to buy my own lock. It's the same thing like sell a car with doors without lock mechanism. I paid 1000$ for the rent and have to buy the lock for 1 time use? The good thing is - I reused the lock from my storage unit :) Remarkably, the previous time I rented uhaul, it did have the lock and key, which completely makes sense.

The truck we were provided had very noisy brakes. We returned the truck and although there was an identical truck there we had to drive to Burnside in the truck with the noisy brakes to pick up another truck.

Chose this location to avoid the unhelpful staff member we encountered previously (and had a very unpleasant experience with) at another nearby location over a year ago. Lo and behold- he was the one to “help” us at the Meadowbrook location. Did not provide us any instruction on how to return the truck which resulted in a $20 charge after they “lost” the keys we returned to the Dropbox. When we picked up the keys he managed to insult us twice while providing no actual helpful information. Will not be returning to any location in the city of Saint Louis Park since he seems to work at all of them.

This was the worst rental experience Ihave ever had. Even worse when I reached out to tell you all about it NO ONE from UHAUL even cared to reach back out. The lady at the desk was rude and "bored" due to lack of business. Their drop box is hidden and they charged me extra because they locked the key in the truck. She then accused me of calling her stupid and charged me a late fee for them not knowing the key was in the truck. I dropped it off six hours early and busted my ass to do so. Unbelievable how sad these individuals are to make so many mistakes and blame the customer of all things. NEVER renting from them again. IF I EVEN THINK to rent a UHaul again it would be through Bauer in Minnetonka, but this experience may have soured me on yourorganization forever.

the return process was flawed, the online tool did not work properly and I ended up calling it in manually. And that was even not done properly, as I received a all from the local company asking about the return. Evidently they put the wrong serial number on my paperwork. But wasting time onsite in the middle of the night is the most frustrating part of the overall experience.
