The pick-up place was very sketchy. The right side mirror was broken and would not stay in place, my brother had to Gorilla tape it to stay in place. I had rented a dozen blankets and rescued 10 dirty ones. Had trouble with the seat belt and the shifter was hard to move. Terrible experience overall.

At no fault of the dealer, this pickup was a disaster and extremely stressful. I reserved a trailer a couple of days ahead of time, and when we came to pick it up, they didn't have it on site. I called the other dealer in town, they didn't have the right one, either. We had already driven 20 minutes out of our way because online said this was the closest location to have what we needed. I ended up having to downgrade my rental, which was a pretty large inconvenience for us. The whole ordeal put us way behind schedule and kind of ruined my plans for the day. This is not the first time I've had this happen, and because of this situation being more than a one time fluke, I will no longer be using uhaul for my trailer/moving truck needs. The gentlemen at melody muffler was the only saving grace through the experience. He helped us with the new order, and assisted loading. 10/10 recommend that dude in particular, but I'm fed up with uhaul. If I knew how to get a refund, I'd be doing it, because the experience was incredibly stressful and inconvenient, the opposite of what ya'll are suppose to be.

Actually let them rent the truck that they reserved and had a confirmation email from. The truck was in the lot, and I was refused the truck. He did offer to rent me a bigger truck for more money, while keeping the money from the 1st truck. This was a horrible experience and everyone I know will hear about the lack of customer service and actual stupidity involved with this transaction.

The people at the location were helpful and friendly. I don't hold them responsible for the truck problems. It had issues wandering at highway speeds and it wasn't loaded anywhere near capacity and it didn't matter if it was full or almost empty. The front tires had wear patterns suggesting alignment, tire, or some kind of suspension problems. One of the rear outside duals had the same wear, so it must have been a front tire and was moved to the rear. It should be taken out of service until the problem is repaired. The rest of the truck was fine, It ran very well, loaded or unloaded, brakes were fine, A/C worked, radio worked. The only negative was the front end. Probably no one caught it before because they aren't used to driving trucks and assumed it was normal.The tire wear says otherwise.

You didn't ask the right questions- I "reserved" a truck from a location in Richland WA at 7am for pick-up, only to find the day before that I could NOT get the truck until 3:30pm. I reserved it for 7am because I knew packing would take ALL DAY. I asked about the "reservation" only to find thats not really what it is and the only available truck of my size wasn't available until 3:30pm. So just what good does it do a CUSTOMER, to "RESERVE" a truck, if you are not going to have one available? I ended up having to drive to Hermiston the day before, to get the needed size of truck. Inconvenient as I was on a timeline with a cross country move, not to mention the extra gas to drive it back to where I needed to pack. Your prices have gone thru the roof too! $2600 for a one way move?? But what choice do people have? You know this, that's why you jack up the prices- those of us that need it, have to pay. You did the same thing to me at my destination with storage units, was going to store at the return facility, "reserved" two units, only to find the same thing, its not really a reservation. So I again had to scramble to find storage at my destination. That doesn't work well for people who are moving cross-country! I can't just hit the road with an entire household and just hope to find storage when I get there. How then would a person, a few weeks out from a move, ever rent your storage? You didn't give me the option to pay as soon as I "reserved" the units, so my assumption was my "reservation" would hold the units until I got there. You definitely DO NOT work well for those moving long distances. Next time I will not even consider U-Haul for my needs. Also will convey to friends and family how your services really work (or more accurately) don't work. I know you don't care- you probably don't read the comments, you already have your money and people still need your service. The location I picked up the truck at- the man was quite friendly and I was out of there in under 30 minutes, thank god he knew what he was doing.

I originally ordered my uhaul to pick up in Pendleton. The day before my scheduled pickup I received a call telling me to pick the truck up in Hermiston, 30 miles away from Pendleton. Got charged for those extra 30 miles too. I had to arrange for a ride, spend extra money for gas and pay for the extra 30 miles. Really bad service.

The inside of the trailer was dirty/not spot out. I rented on line and someone else had to pick it up but you didn't charge the card I used online to reserve it. You made the person who picked it up pay. What was the point of putting in credit card to reserve if you charged it nothing either before or when it was picked up?

This location was not close to me. I had to drive 76 miles round trip to find a utility trailer because web site didn't show any near me although I live in town much larger than where I got the trailer and with multiple Uhaul locations.

The people were nice and friendly. BUT my truck was not there when I went to get it. I was supposed to have a truck in Pendleton OR, they had no truck for me and I was instructed to drive to Hermiston OR for it and they did not have a truck either. I was on hold 45 minutes with customer service. POOR experience.

The trailer was supposed to be ready to picked up at 9:00 am. I arrived at that time and was told the trailer wasn't there and I should get a cup of coffee somewhere and come back later. I told the person that I had reserved a 4 x 8 trailer and he was totally unaware of it. I came back at 10:00 and still no trailer. A little later, another customer returned a 4 x 8 trailer and that was the only 8 foot trailer on the lot. I went through the rental process and he was in a big hurry to get me out of there. He forgot to give me the 10 moving blankets that I had rented and i had to make another trip back to pick those up. It was definitely not a pleasant experience. The equipment was fine, but the process left much to be desired.

I hate your electronic return system. I needed to enable location services on my device. I hate doing that. I hate your threat to charge $20 to not use the electronic service. If there is another convenient rental service , I will use them preferentially every time because of your web return service.

Not charging $28 a day for insurance that's for sure maybe give a weekend package deal if you're renting for 4 days or what not and check the gas gauge when you're not sitting on a goddamn incline

I do have a major issue with reserving equipment at a specific location (five minutes from my home) and then getting informed a few days before my pickup that the closest location to get the equipment is over an hour away. After explaining that wouldn't work to a rep he then found a location 35 minutes away. You need to specify more clearly on your web site that desired pickup locations or anything even close is NOT guaranteed. BIG BOLD LETTERS ON YOUR WEBSITE WOULD BE BEST!

Customer service that isn't rude, this location was great. But the customers service rep I spoke to on the phone was I considerate and rude. Uhaul has no right to change location of pick up 40 miles away. And just expect customers to deal with it. You should of never accepted my reservation if you could not fulfill it. Embarrassing and certainly not keeping your promise.

The truck had dog food pieces as well as pine needles, and small branch pieces in the back. There was a light on indicating the tire pressure was low. I was told buy one of the attendants that they had to replace a tire recently. I have had the same experience with my trucj, so I ran with it.
