Perhaps just post more info at site how to initiate pick up. I had no issues but another person was there standing around for a while thinking we were workers when we were there. Really enjoyed how simple the process was

What I agreed to for pricing was not what I ended up receiving at the end.!!! The Truck Share feature was not working because MY BOOKING was done INCORRECTLY . I waited over 72 minutes at the pick up location for the 800 assistance....she advised of rates that I had to accept as I has committed to people. Please call me for escalated service issues

I called to check fir a better mileage rate. I was on hold for over 50 minutes and when I asked, they checked what vehicle I was renting and got a resounding NO. No deals for this vehicle and hung up. Was not happy with customer service.

Truck had some bad leaks, was a rainy day and could only use 3/4 of the truck. Furniture still got wet and Had to mop out the whole truck before using. Terrible experience.

The worker did not know how to operate the booking. He was very difficult to deal with/ if he is going to have UHAUL's on your behalf you may want o provide him more training for guidance.

I paid to rent a furniture dolly and there was none provided for me. Besides this, I showed up early, as requested to check in, and the vehicle I was supposed to rent was blocked in. I clicked through the alternate options and none were on site. Had to wait 15-20 minutes to get the vehicle out of the parking lot. The person in charge was friendly but wasn't overly helpful. This was my first experience and wasn't a great one.

I was charged $190 to rent the vehicle hauler and now they want $450 to bring the same trailer back to the same location. This is extreme price gouging

Perform more wheel & tire checks in between rental customers. I had noticed the defect in the tire thankfully the morning of my trip before departing and had it taken care of.

Some confusion on my part when I booked on-line. I erroneously believed that the form "Your Shopping Cart" was my contract. When I reported to the pick-up location (The UPS Store), there was no record of my booking, and didn't have an Auto Transport. Bill the manager courteously called around to other outlets and found one with a trailor which he booked for me. All turned out well.

I had a 26 footer & was going to drop off 50$ for gas I went 22 Kim's that was more than enough. However your system was charging me 190.00 for charges for not putting gas in it. The gas pumps were full & no where to park such a huge rig. You guys should take that into account . Paul's customer service was great.

Hire a polite, professional sales person. This man was outright rude, He grunted and barked each time He spoke. He complained when asked the difference in price between bringing it back there at the end of the day or dropping it off at our destination. I chose to pay much more to drop it off at our destination and not see him again!!!! NEVER AGAIN

Customer service was terrible, not enough gas in tank, transmission issues. Need experienced people for your pick-up locations. Trucks need to be better maintained. Not a great experience during a stressful time to begin with.

Customer service was a disaster and was full of unexpected charges. Procedures were explained poorly, my 5 year old nephew could've done a better. Would never recommend this location to anyone not even my worst enemy.

This location is very unprofessional. Didnt have any furniture pads. Was given an ol oil soaked blanket. Trailer was burried in behind 4 others when i got to the location. It was reccommended to me to back in and hook onto chains to pull it out. Called me a liar when i told him i paid online. Would reccommend all to stay away from this location at all costs.

The receipt I was told I would receive in my e-mail did not contain the actual cost of my first rental. The 2nd rental was booked at this location to be picked up at another location 4 hours away. The National Office called to confirm the day before the rental, and had no information regarding me, so, I spent another 20 minutes or so informing them of this, then when I picked the rental up in Elmsdale, my information was not there either and I had to provide it all again!!!!

Trailer had bald right rear tire, broken right front main leaf spring, and left brake light didnt work. Employee at pick up location was extremely rude and even told me that "if i had a flat tire dont f***ing call me just drive it, it still has 3 more" also did not hook up trailer nor checked operation of lights and proper hook up. I am very displeased and will be calling to file a grievance
