I spent over 2 hours on truck pick up day trying to just get the truck!! Talk about an unorganized sh!t show! I will NEVER rent from U-Haul again just based on this chaotic experience. Come on people, get it together!

Better communication as to 24/7 access versus website's stated business hours starting at 9:00 a.m.

The major problem I had is that the business hours at this location do not coincide with the hours I picked up and dropped off the vehicle. I had no ability to check out or check in on my phone. I don't know if it was because of bad reception or what, but to be able to check in and out from home instead of the location would have saved a lot of frustration. The U-Haul website needs some tweaking as it does not always allow changes without calling a representative, at least, in my experience.

After reserving the truck I got the confirmation email as usual. I didn't have any correspondence from Uhaul until 6pm the day we were moving. Telling me the pickup location had been moved 45 miles from the original pick up location. Not the sort of snag I hoped to run into the day before moving.

This was an amazing experience. We were towing a this trailer when we hit a deer. My brand new car was ruined and I had to get a truck to continue on with my move. The owner of the engine shop was extremely kind and helpful and even helped us unload a vet pack trailer into the Uhaul truck. Very pleased with this service.

Uhaul itself is terrible with giving instructions to the places you pick up from for lock and drop!!!!!! The uhaul company delegated my reservations cause I was not there by 9:20 p.m. to pick up the truck as my son had to work late. That was the reason I request a 24/7 pick/drop due to not knowing how late he was going to work. I cant drive two vehicles myself if you have a brain in your head you would you would think gee how is that gonna work if she is driving up from Illinois!!!! Takes TWO DRIVERS USE YOUR BRAIN IF YOU HAVE ONE UHAUL SCHEDULERS!!!!!!!!!! I had to wait 2 1/2 hrs to pick up the uhaul from where I was told I was getting it at and then they had it assigned to another family so the truck I was originally getting I didnt get I got a different one all cause UHAUL SCREWED UP PLUS ADDED SAFE MOVE WHEN U TOLD THEM WHEN CONFIRMED MY RESERVATIONS I DIDN'T NEED IT THEY SRILL CHAEGED ME BEEN FIGHTING TO GET REIMBURST PLUS DISCOUNTS FOR HAVING TO WAIT AN ADDITIONAL 2 1/2 HRS TO GET THE TRUCK WHEN GOT TO LOCATION TO PICK UP AND ALL THE DETOURS WISCONSIN HAS GOINGING ON WITH EVERY ROAD BEING UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

I reserved a trailer for a 10:00am but no one showed up at the location until after 10:30am and still needed another 15+ minutes to complete the check in. I was unable to make an 11am appointment. He did not complete the check in process when I returned the trailer so it was not showing as returned in my online account.. When I went back to check it in using the online process, the app wanted to charge me again. The U-haul web sites were useless on a Samsung tablet and my android phone. The uhaul.com site opens with all the drop down menus open making it impossible to navigate. The link that was sent to my email for this review form just generated an error message until I opened on a desktop PC. My overall experience with U-Haul has been very unpleasant.

We had a trailer reserved several weeks in advance at a location near us. The evening before, we received a phone call telling us we would have to drive several miles to a different location for the trailer we reserved. When we picked it up, the U-Haul location was a dump, the trailer was dirty, and no accessories were available, We had to go buy a hitch. And when we asked if we could return it to a closer location, we were told no.

Your customer service representatives that helped Terry were pushy to rerun my credit card after I told him not to. one of them cancelled my reservation after I had paid online which casued a two and a half hour delay for me to leave with the truck. I am requesting a refund of some type for that inconvenience .

Well I asked for a 10', but got a 17'! Which I got for the same price, but really had to spend more money on gas! So, not sure if that's my fault, but I did get what I needed to get done! We all look at saving where ever we can at any place we go too! All in all, it was O.K.!

This location was the 2nd place I went. The 1st place in Watertown, Wi nobody was there. After 3 calls and nearly an hour later my only option was to drive 20 miles in the opposite direction and pick up a comparable truck at this location in Waterloo, Wi. Also when I did call I was told my problem was a scheduling issue and the number I called couldn't help me. I'm not sure why my call couldn't just be transferred to the right person. I had to scramble around to find a pen and paper and write down a number and reservation number before I could connect with somebody that could help me. It cost me 2 hours of my day and I was only offered compensation after I asked if I could get a discount for my troubles. I got $50 and some free extra miles to cover the added distance I'd have to go. Also when I picked the truck up it only had 1/4 tank of gas. I was told to just return it with a quarter tank of gas. How are you supposed to know how much gas you will use to leave it with the proper amount? Shouldn't the truck be full and the renter fills it when returning? That would be much more simple.

I reserved my Uhaul truck using the online reservation. The house I moved to was 1 mile away (in town move). I reserved the truck online for 4 days (total: about $180 plus mileage). I was contacted several days later by a Uhual employee who told me that I could have the truck but it would be $290. Over $100 higher than what I reserved it for!!! Bunch of crap. I live on the west side of Madison (there are 3-4 uhaul locations in madison) however somehow the truck on reserved online that was supposed to be located on the east side Uhaul, now for some reason was 30 miles outside Madison in a small town called Waterloo. So my wife had to drive me 30 miles out there and then drive 30 miles back to our house. So in the end, I ended up having to pay over 100 dollars more than the reservation paperwork stated and had to drive 60 miles to get the thing (and remind you I live IN Madison where there are several large Uhaul locations). I am basically furious over the entire process and will never ever use Uhaul trucks again. What a scam you guys run.

This place has the worst hours. I got to the place a little after it had opened and no one was there. Also, the box to put the key was inside, but obviously the building was locked. I went back an hour later (using up gas, of course) and the guy was in the building next door and acted like I was supposed to know that. He was really nice, overall, though.
