Jeff at Scotties was always helpful every time I called. They delivered the uboxes when I needed them and picked them up when empty. Thank you to Jeff

Both Kansas City where I received empty and Quincy has friendly and nice people. The uboxes arrived at both places when I asked for them. This a great thing to have what is needed when requested.

No internet service or extremely poor. Was a youth member who assisted me and still got it wrong uhaul support attempted fix following day however now trying to charge me for another $235. For a extra day i was told would cost me $40. And was told i was covered with the extra insurance i paid for in having to replace key. Found key and was told not to worry about it i was covered. This is extra bs.. The whole experiance is bs. Wont use this location again. Not to mention had to use a much larger truck than i initially needed and was charged with that too. Maybe Penske next time... Ugh # not Happy#pain in rear#Ripoffintheend #addedstressssss

Uhaul was unable to reserve a trailer anywhere in the state of Illinois stating every location said unassigned. I requested a location and Uhaul took it upon themselves to decide where I would pick up. That's terrible operations and customer service.

It took almost 30 minutes to pick up the truck we had reserved due to the UHaul website locking up and giving the dealer several error messages. After a few phone calls, the issue was resolved, but the wait time seemed extreme.

I began this process with talking to Mike Haxel @ Haxel Shell in Quincy,IL. I will NOT recommend him To anyone. He never said anything to the fact that there was a chance I would not be picking U-Haul up at his location. You can imagine how freaked I was when I received notice I was picking up in Hamilton IL...45 min away! I called him...and he flat out lied to me!!! First claimed he didn't talk to me...I personally went up there to make deposit so he couldn't get out of that lie so he went with that he explain all of this to me when I came in. All he said to me when I came in was I'm him...because I asked for Mike said I needed to put a deposit down and he had another employee do it. He gets a big fat F for my rating!!!! Thank goodness for the kind man at Scotties Fun Spot in Quincy IL where I did pick up my rental. I was under so much stress and he made sure that everything went as smooth as possible!!!!

Always have someone available to check vehicles in during hours you advertise you are “open”. It's stressful having to just leave the keys and not knowing if there is going to be a dispute about something related to the check in process.

First of all we were told our reserved truck was not available due to overbooking . So the location we chose was transferred to one way far away from us meaning more cost and loss of time etc .. then the day before my 87 year old mother who was moving said she did not get any recorded message the day before to tell us the location was changed to Scotties . There was absolutely no message left on her phone . My mother of age 87 said she did not hear the phone ring so had no idea that her moving truck would not be available 8:00 am the day she was moving . The morning of her move her daughter called to make sure all was ok and was informed thre was no truck . He called us back and said the corporate Uhaul company double booked the truck and that we would need to pick it up at another location . That other location ( Scottie ) was a good distance and that they were opening at 10.000 instead of 8:00 am . Our hired movers was expected to arrive at 10.00 am where we would have provided the truck already .Our moving day for our mother was filled with last minute confusion and anxiety . UHAUL NEEDS TO IPROVE THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION . WE WEFE INFORMED THAT UHAUL has done this type of business often and that is not reassuring at all . Scotties location is a fun house / skating rink for children and not a business for Uhaul trucks . Upon our arrival we needed find the door to the Uhaul business . We shouted in one door and someone said they would get someone to help us . We were asked to follow them in a dark playhouse and there we conducted business on the dark since the kids play place was closed up due to Covid 19 . I'm not sure why we were not in a room with lights . Strange day and our movers tried very hard to get our move in since we were delayed . Out of 10 - UHaul got a 10 for a great truck and a 0 for double booking our paid reservation one week ahead of our move . Also a 0 for poor communication for Scotties UHAUL , since no message on her iPhone was not left

The manger was very helpful and got us out quickly for drop off with no issues. However before dropping off we had a delay in Missoula Montana so before heading out we stopped at uhaul and asked to make sure the trailer was connected properly and to make sure our car could tow it so far. The guy that helped, I did not get his name but he was awesome. He went above and beyond to switch out the ball to the proper one that we should of been given in Burien, Wa I really wish I had his name bc he was the most caring and knew what he was doing to help us have safe travels.

I rented one of those tow Dolly's. I really only needed it for two days. U-haul made me rent for 4 days because I was going 690 miles away. I didn't need it that long. Just wished they let you rent for the days you really need to rent it for. So they basically got extra money out off me even though I returned it 2 days early. Next time have the person decide on how long they need it and not the cooperation people of U-Haul.

The process was a little confusing for someone using this service for the first time. My pickup location was changed to meet the equipment needs i requested. I was charged for going over the expected mileage. I dont think they recalculated after they changed my pickup location. A whole 4.2 miles over. I thought that was a little finicky especially after the truck cost me $300 and was not set up with the furniture pads or furniture dolly i requested and paid for.

Moved my reservation an hour and half away. Uhaul needs to honor their reservation and not change things up when they get a wild hair. Using budget rentals so I don't have to deal with crappy policies and your last minute changes.

This drop off location was confusing. Also the cell phone coverage was spotty and it kept kicking me off the Haul site. It took 45 mins to return the truck because of this-very frustrating. I would much rather go to a "real" UHaul location where I could hand the keys to a person. There was no one to ask for help. Would not return here.

No personnel on hand. Location had a fringe cell connection. Had real difficulty with the check-in app. Fortunately a friend was able to help me through it. Not real sure about the security of leaving the truck with pads and dollies inside and no locks. I was concerned about any liability I might have for loss after I left the equipment behind.

The woman I dealt with on the phone was one of the most hateful and rude people I have ever talked to in my life! She was outright lied twice, then wouldn't listen and then hung up on me. We ordered a 26' truck, ended up with a 15' truck that we actually made three trips with and now have to rent another truck from somewhere else to finish moving. Needless to say it's been a horrible experience that has led me to a decision to never use your company again!

Make sure your equipment is in good condition. For $675 for a 1 way trip I expected quality equipment. The trailer leaked water and damaged some of the contents. Now I'm getting the typical run a round, call this place or that place, no one is responsible, even with the extra insurance

This is the second time I have had dealings with Scotties. The first time they didn't have the trailer I reserved. Had to go across town to get another trailer. Second time had to wait 20 min to drop off trailer. There was no one around. They run an amusement park there also. Did not get a return receipt as promised, Had to call U Haul customer service to get it cleared up. Customer service was very helpful.

Requested pick up was at Axels Shell in Quincy, got no call the day before to verify so called Axels day of pickup and they said trailer hadn't arrived yet. So after trailer still had not arrived an hour after pickup time they looked around and said Scotties had one, and I went over there to pick it up. So pickup was delayed several hours, not sure what was behind the problem. Everything else went well.
