The app we were told to use to pick up the truck could not find my reservation, so we couldn't get the truck on time. We called the 1-800 number to try to fix the app problem, but it had a 51-minute wait time, which was after the store opened. We were able to get the truck quickly after the store opened, but that put us way behind for the day, and the clerk didn't even apologize for the problems and delay.

The truck was not clean inside - floor was dirty and swept it out myself and some of the pads smelled like mildew. Otherwise fine.

If you want to go to a place to rent a moving vehicle and you try to think of everything they could do to make you, in hindsight, wish you'd never gone there, look no further than this place. I felt cheated, disrespected, and completely disposable. I hate that i gave this business a penny.

Location displayed anti-American propaganda in their windows. They weren't friendly and the store was dirty. Pretty disgusting for them to hang a sign that says “only thing worse than COVID 19 is Biden 20” when 600,000+ people have died of COVID. Pretty sure those families would disagree that a political candidate is worse than their loved ones' death. Will never go there again. It was the closest drop off, but had I known their disgusting beliefs- I wouldn't have used this location.

The Trump signs on the outside of the business mean that I will not be back. People are free to hold their political beliefs, but when someone chooses to use their business as a platform to promote theirs, those who find them disgusting will choose to go elsewhere.

Stoicheffs Auto has political signs in their front window that I feel would offend many people because of our nation's current political division and because to me, and others, they represent disinformation that is killing American democracy. These posters are an insult to one of our democratic cornerstones: the peaceful transition of power, and they inspire the ever increasing erosion of our democracy. Although I fully support one's freedom of speech, I felt very uncomfortable walking into this business and interacting with the personnel there. I would prefer not to have to deal with political messaging at businesses, especially ones that represents a national chain like U-Haul. I couldn't imagine McDonalds allowing similar political posters at their locations. Thank you.

They really need to get rid of the pro-Trump signs and anti-Biden signs in their store window. I was not comfortable at all upon entering the store. Poltical views have no place in a professional place of business and the election is done and over.

The equipment was clean and the price was reasonable. Understanding it was likely a long day for the staff due to PSU move in weekend, they could use some customer service training, particularly the guy that handled the return. Reminded me of the cranky old man next door that tells all the kids to stay off his lawn.

Busy site with staff that is curt with customers. I was supposed to have extra miles because I had to drive to Conesus, NY from Fairport, NY to pick up the truck. The service attendant at this location at first charged me for 5 extra miles which was inappropriate. After spending nearly $700 dollars on this move, the 5 miles should never had been an issue.

Location has many, many, many Trump flags. While I respect the right of the owner, this was a little off-putting. However, the U-Haul's themselves were well kept and ran smoothly, so can't complain about that. The location itself also worked great for me.

Small return and parking area causes lots of congestion for customers. I mentioned to the return agent that there was a leak in the grandma's attic. Agent didn't seem to care. Also, the fuel guage sticks at 5/8 tank of gas which is the reason I returned the truck full. I tried to fill to 3/4, but the gage didn't go past 5/8 till tank was full. I asked for refund of the additional fuel and agent again didn't seem to care and told me to file a complaint. Not a customer oriented location.

We felt that we were imposing as soon as we walked in, rather than being welcomed. The gentleman behind the counter barely said “Hi” to us before he answered the phone and spoke impatiently with another customer. This location is severely understaffed when it comes to handling both phone calls and walk-in customers. Dropping off our rental on Sunday afternoon was not only a disorganized disaster - it was extremely dangerous. The returned trucks were jammed into the parking lot, leaving very little room off of a busy road to pull off, decide how to park the rental, and then actually park it. It was a scary situation.

While the truck was in fine condition, the store front windows have two massive "Trump 2020" signs as well as a disparaging sign about President Biden. At this point (July 2021), this display is clearly meant to intimidate. I will never rent a truck from this location again.

The employees here are extremely rude. As soon as we arrived, they yelled at us to move our car into a parking spot that was then immediately taken by another employee. They don't offer any short-term parking, which means that two people are necessary to pick up a rental. There was an extremely long line and the employees did not care/did not try to help people at all. The employees here may have been the most unpleasant people I have met in this town. Their store is also plastered with huge Trump signs. I have told everyone I know to avoid this location.

Upon returning the vehicle, the establishment accused me of spilling oil and trying to return the vehicle without cleaning. This was the most disgraceful experience I have ever had to endure. Sure I wasn't careful to inspect the interior of the truck when I received it. That was an accident. I acknowledged as such to this facility and indicated I was willing to pay the $50 fee. But that oil spill was not from me. This is despicable and pathetic service. I do not recommend this return facility. I also encourage UHaul to contact me for more information. Stay away.

The hand cart that I received was bent. Specifically, the bottom plate was upward so that the angle between the hand cart frame and the bottom plate was <90 degrees. This made it very difficult for a single user to stack more than 1 or 2 boxes on it. It also made the handcart very unstable when free-standing on its own. I was unable to bend the bottom plate back into position on my own.

My reservation was somehow changed from 8am to 9am without any notification so I arrived too early to pick up my truck and had to wait until an hour prior to 9am. I also waited almost 20 minutes to be approved through the truck share online process. Overall set us back almost an hour in our moving process.
