I was overcharged and then told a story by the owner that it was a corporate UHAUL issue. Total rip off. This location is not trustworthy, don't use it.

Charlie, the gentleman from U haul, was friendly, attentive and helpful. Truck was clean inside and out. Would do business with this U haul facility again.

Location was fine the booking service is horrible and cost me three trips because the truck was no where around which cost me a lot more in miles. They called 1 day before I requested it but I booked it for days in advance

I had difficulty using mobile app. Reservation expired because I arrived an hour after scheduled pick up time. Fortunately, staff was on hand to assist with the rental.

website is clunky trying to order trailer and find place that had it. Once we got through that the place, setup and local uhaul place were all great.

The check in process was not very efficient. I arrived at 5 o'clock to pick up the truck and could not get any information off the app to sign in and get the code to retrieve the keys. It wasn't until I called the number after 7 o'clock to find out that the contract had been canceled. Luckily the lady I spoke to was able to retrieve it. But it's very confusing and I would never use this process again. I like U-HAUL but I wouldn't rent a vehicle unless I could go into the building and talk to someone.

The truck was really clean overall, but the inside of the windshield was dirty enough to make glare more annoying. Overall, I thought the manager was pleasant and friendly.

When we arrived at the location for pickup it was closed and we had been given no information (at all) about what to do in this situation. There was no obvious way to pick up the van, and after calling we were finally forwarded an email that contained a link to let us move forward with checking out our van. It was incredibly stressful and unnecessary to not give us this information ahead of time (if someone is checking out a van on the weekend just send them this email so that they know they have to go through these steps), otherwise there would have been no way for us to get the van. It put us an hour behind schedule but after that everything went smoothly.

I only received 6 furniture pads at the pick up location but they said I received 12. They charged me $38.00 for missing pad I never received. I call to complain and the woman I spoke with said she would credit my account. Been over a month and no credit. only use UHAUL if you like being ripped off by their total incompetence. I'm wondering if they charged me double for the missing pads? Who the F**** knows, since I never received the reciept for the initial transaction. Horrible company to work with.

The online reservation system was awful, but the people at Payne's Truck & Auto Repair were fantastic! I highly recommend the location, but you should probably call them directly instead of doing an online reservation.

This place confirmed a 20' truck was there for me to pick up the nest day. When I arrived, there was not a 20' truck and they put me into a 26' truck. I understand I still got a truck, a bigger truck, and for the same price, but I was NOT comfortable driving this huge truck. I'm more pissed they said I was good and that the 20' truck was there when it wasn't.

The location was a car repair shop, so I was expecting some issues. Fortunately the people there were incredibly helpful, checked me out with no problem, and were friendly. The van itself was in great shape, ran well, had a full tank of gas. The only improvement would have been your web site as I had trouble with making my reservation through it.

I was unable to rent the equipment I originally reserved at the Wilmington ma location. My original reservation was for a 6x12 trailer in Wilmington ma. I was told it was rented out to someone else and the only option was a smaller trailer at another location. This required multiple trips on my part. While my experience at Payne's auto and truck was fine, the overall experince was negative. I would be hesitant to recommend U-Haul in the future
