Not sure why some equipment can be checked out anytime and some only a specific time. I had a cargo van that had 24x7 availability and when changed to a 10' truck my 7am pickup was no longer valid - I had to wait until 9am - TWO HOURS - to get it which is coincidentally when the location opened despite the fact that I never interfaced with them.

The app for returning the equipment was a huge waste of time….. late at night and when I was very tired. I had to go back in the morning to complete the process. After paying $250 for a rental this was frustrating. I won't do it again.

I believe Uhaul (not the location). Reds to do a better job with Customer service. I was looking for a round trip rental Thursday to Sunday which I was denied. I then booked 2 one ways. My destination was changed on my first one way (pushing my drop off further away from my destination). I went along with it. I was also told at the time that my 2nd reservation was not confirmed as there was no longer a truck available (that doesn't make sense given an individual is dependent on their reservation). I was then told my start point for my second rental was changed (again. Farther away from my destination) I had a feeling they were changing each to give me a truck on my second pickup. I was correct. I picked up the same truck on Sunday that I dropped off Friday at a location not chosen by me but picked by uhaul which were both further away from my address. I asked multiple times if truck wasn't rented why I couldn't keep with no good answer. If you look at my receipts you will see NO ONE took this truck all weekend besides me. Uhaul could have easily offered me the option to keep the truck even if I had to pay the higher one way rate. Offering the convenience of keeping the truck would have gone a long way for great customer service.

The Uhaul truck I was given was covered in car hair and cat urine which was unbearable during my 1300 mile transit. I was forced to stop multiple times in order to try and disinfect and get rid of the smell which did not work. I spent almost $3500 for the rental on this truck and if I had the choice I would have never rented this vehicle but since it was the only one available as I was told I was forced to rent the truck. There was also a crack in the windshield and I called the location the same day to report these issues and was only told they would “note my file” and no offer to correct the issue was given. I am extremely disappointed with the service and rental.

The mileage was wrong by 1000 miles from what was on the pick up phone app. I ordered moving blankets and they were not in the truck at pick up and I was charged for them anyway. Waited on hold for more than 30 minutes to speak to a customer service representative while we tried to explain the mileage was different than what was documented and that we requested blankets that were not there. Furthermore I requested a 20 foot U-Haul in Old Saybrook and the day of the move found out we had to drive to Groton about 20 minutes away for a larger truck which obviously used more gas than we needed. Overall frustrated and not thrilled with the experience however the drop off location in Lebanon New Hampshire was very accommodating and nice to have a live person to explain the issue to

My reservation was able to be updated to pick up that afternoon instead of early the next morning. The facility called me to confirm, and she was very accommodating once we got to site.

Didn't get furniture pads and was still charged for it. So signing up for the extras online rather than in person is a gamble. Other than that it's a standard rental

There was some initial confusion regarding my pick-up location and truck size. But the locations were only a mile apart, and the truck was a sufficient size and available when I needed it (along with moving pads). From the UHAUL perspective I am very happy with how my move went!

Ordered pads, 2 dollies but couldn't access them due to location being closed. Went to another U-Haul to get. Just inconvenient more than anything else.

Here is a great idea: how about next time, you give me the correct lock box number instead of giving me an incorrect lock box number and having me wait at the place for an hour and a half in order to receive the key to the truck. I was told lock box 1, but it ended up being in lock box 2. This was super inconvenient for me and it took away a lot of time that I could have spent packing. I think the best way to settle this would be some sort of partial refund/rebate because quite frankly if I was given the correct lock box number, I would have had a breezier move.

The problem is with the app and the entire online process of checking out and returning the vehicle. It took me about an hour to get the vehicle and an hour trying to return it because portions of the app would not work. I called customer service and wait time was 45min before anyone answered. I tried to use chat and the chat person told me to call customer service and disconnected the chat. It was more difficult renting from U-haul than renting from any rental car company.

The lady at the front desk wanted to charge me a $25 cleaning fee for 2 bottles and 3 napkins that were left in there by the pick up location. She was really rude to the gentleman before me and then myself. Unfortunate experience. You would think she would be a lot nicer considering I left over a quarter tank extra of gas and returned the truck 19 hours before I was supposed to.

Online booking. Wanted another location. Received notice that I was picking up in Groton, but dropping off in new London (my original choice). Was informed that I needed to drop off in Groton as well when I picked up the truck. Tell me BEFORE I book that I can't have my choices.

We were charged a $25 cleaning fee. The interior was left in the same condition as it was received and we swept the backend as instructed. Not sure why this fee was applied when we left the vehicle in better condition than we found it.

Truck had not been cleaned. Used mask in the cab, and rear had not been swept. Rear door stuck toward the bottom and hard to close. You can also be sure to include the equipment ordered. I ordered with an appliance dolly, furniture dolly, and 24 furniture pads. NONE was there. I was asked to go to another location, but was only able to get the appliance dolly. This was a huge inconvenience.

The mobile online registration that was supposed to provide me a code to access a lock box for the vehicle did not provide it. Thank God someone was working at the storage facility at the time I went to pick the vehicle up and was able to help me or I wouldn't have been able to pick the vehicle up when I needed it.

Better system for pre-registration and optimize the app. Location and rental were fine, but the app and process to get the information I needed were terrible. The app kept closing and I was asked to add my information four times. The location I got it from was closed so I was relying on the app to be efficient. The process took way longer than it needed to.

Business provided a trailer for interstate travel limited to 45 MPH per the sticker on the trailer, didn't tell me this, and this limitation was not stated in the rental agreement. Then when I called them to inform them of this they told me they were not aware of the speed limitation and they recommended I ignore it. Still awaiting refund.
