We requested a 20' van in westborro. Uhaul emailed us advising us of the change of location. No big deal. However when we arrived they only at 15' foot available. Per the attendant at they desk, she said the notes indicated you had called advising us of the smaller van. However uhaul had the wrong number so how did that happen. This forces us to make a second trip costing more money. Great service from the dealer. No communication from uhaul.

Uhaul contacted me 4 days before the agreed date to cancel my reservation and give me a new smaller truck. The phone agent did not mention the 50$ guarantee until I brought it up. Truck was really dirty. Had to dispute the charge of gas as the reported amount was not correct.

Fantastic customer service! I was unable to pick up my truck on my original reservation date as the U-Haul computer system was down. The personnel at Southkeys Tires and Brakes were very helpful, trying to log into the system as frequently as possible for me, and ultimately rescheduling my reservation to another date. I would highly recommend this pick up location. Very nice staff.

Filling it up with gas or offering an incentive to fill it up would have been nice. It was an extreme pain to put 30$ of gas in at a time because I had no idea how big the tank was. Ended up increasing the length of our drive by about a half hour and almost ran out of gas once

I have been charged twice for my rental and have been disputing this for over 2 months now and nobody is helping me. This is by far the worst customer service I have ever experienced. It is unacceptable.

Please remind the customer of the steps for returning rental units at the drop-off location, especially if it is to be returned to a location advertised as accepting returns 24/7. Also remind the customer of the online check-in check-out accommodations.

The people who gave me the uhaul were extremely friendly and kind, but the uhaul rules are completely obscured and dumb, you should be able to drop off at any location no matter what and it should not be the rental fee times two that's ridiculous and super over priced

The man who helped me was very friendly, and wore a mask, and made sure the van was sanitized for me. The van worked very well, and when I brought it back the young woman who did that the check-in procedure with me was also polite, took social distancing seriously, and helped me right away. This was a very pleasant experience.

This comment is NOT geared towards the pick-up location but it is regarding Uhaul head office. Your company added extra stress and caused a lot of additional time spent on hold on the phone in order to reach a representative leading up to my move. My pick-up location was changed behind the scenes twice, which was confusing and frustrating. It's also unfair to incur the mileage cost on the customer if they must pick-up a vehicle much further than their preferred pick-up location. In addition, due to the cumulative hours I spent on hold each time I called, my phone bill increased significantly.

On reviewing my final charges, received via email after returning the van, I discovered that the collision damage waiver had been added, notwithstanding that I had declined the cdw when registering. There was no mention of this when picking up the van. I consider this to be a fraudulent business practice. I expended over an hour on the phone to get the charge reversed, and the local dealer was of no assistance whatsoever.

There was no place to park the trailer. Not everyone has data so drop off just cost me even more so I could send you pictures. Absolutely disgusted with this company. From charging $350 for a simple day trip with a trailer to the lack of consideration for your customers. You would think in a time where social media is a huge deal U haul would work with their customers and not simply try to rip off everyone who walks through the door.

When I called the general U-Haul line to confirm my pickup, I waited 10 minutes too talk to someone. They took my info then transferred me to the same system. I waited 5 more min and someone else took my info... They then transferred me to the same system. Then I waited 5 more min for another person to pick up. After I spoke they transferred me again. It took over 20 min of info/transfer before I have my information and talked to someone that could take care of what I needed. The U-Haul general customer service if the worst I have ever experienced.

We could barely fit the truck on the property. They were definitely at capacity and should not have been accepting more drop-offs.
