Don’t cancel reservations within 24 hour period. And don’t make reservations at a location, if you can’t confirm that. Need to work on the representatives, didnt really help with booking and resolving the issue. Poor service.

This is the best location i have ever dealt with. I like that the app has improved - eg. with reminders to check for equipment/extras. Could add a gas consumption estimator to the app. Customer enters mileage (app knows type of vehicle, time of year, city) and estimates how much gas to refill. Alternative would be everyone always returning full. Cheers!

Mirrors on old truck could not be adjusted. The owner estimated my travel low at front end and then I was given the final bill. It was estimated to be about fifty dollars and ended up being double.

Overall, happy with the service. However, the lock of the truck was wobbly and hence the shed opened in the middle of the road while driving. Thankfully nothing fell. Errum was amazing at TJ's. The one thing I would love to HIGHLIGHT is the customer service I received from Jennifer, she was the one who reserved the U-Uhaul for me after a mishap happened by Metro Food equipment center where they did not prepare a car for me. Sh stayed with me for more than 30 minutes on Call, and searched for locations, and found a car, she also tried hwer best to communicate woth different stores and local managers trying to help me, nothing beats her empathy. This is above and beyond for a customer service and I really really appreciate the service she has provided me with patience and care.

It was a rainy day. 4 issues. 1st issue the truck was park outside the vicinity of the store, got soak and wet to look for it. Was given an incomplete direction. 2nd issue, mode of payment, was told that only credit cards accepted(I like to pay debit and cash) 3rd issue, the truck was rented to another customer while I rented it and paying the whole day (24h) was ask what time I am returning where I am paying the whole 24 hour (I told the staff will return to a certain hour but I need the truck more hours and was told that can’t do it for I already said that I will return it on a certain time. 4th issue. Upon returning, I was told that I need to return the truck to the same parking area where I got them first. (outside the vicinity of the store) I told that the staff that it was pouring rain. The manager was called and finally allowed to leave the truck to the vicinity of the store nevertheless got soak and wet again. So you can tell me now what kind of customer service is this.

The rental pick up person was very helpful and Friendly, the application though is not the best, it's too difficult to work with, too slow and when you wanna type the keyboard covers the content. The approval is too time consuming and long.

The truck was full of broken glass and dust when I picked it up. Also, I was asked to fill the fuel up to 3/4 tank when returning the truck, but it was below 3/4 when I picked it up. I returned it with the same amount of fuel as when I picked it up but I was charged a fuel charge. That’s a shady way of getting the customer to pay for their fuel.

The dealer was very cunning. He charged me double. He gave me contract for 4 hours, but it’s for 24 hours. I was back there in 5 hours, and I had to pay double. I don’t like the customer service at all. Won’t recommend to anyone.

Read the horrible reviews prior to booking and it checks out. Booked a dolly, they have 0 dolly's - had to drive out of the way to pick one up from another location. Gas filled up to a random spot which they say is "standard" but should be absolutely unacceptable - I had to guess where to fill up to and the meter was just barely below what I picked it up at, which they made a fuss about. I don't see any of this changing, it's an essential service so just put your head down and suck it up when booking a uHaul. I picked this location because it had the least bad reviews.

The driver's seatbelt did not work (could not be buckled). I shouldn't have even accepted the rental when I found this out, but it was the only 10' U-Haul available for two days in Halifax and I needed to move. Passenger side mirror was bent down so you had to hunch down to see anything. Driver's side door doesn't close easily (needs to be slammed). Truck was not clean - inside the box had not been swept and there was garbage in the cab (used Q-tips, bottles, paper bags). The plastic grill over the vent to the right of the driver's seat was on the floor of the cab. The wipers did not work well (made a loud screeching sound at first, which eventually went away, but they left huge streaks of uncleared glass across the windshield). There was no wiper fluid at all. No lock was supplied for the bay door (I was told to go purchase my own). I don't think this truck should be rented in its current condition. The only good thing I can say about the experience is that the staff in the store were friendly and responsive, but they obviously couldn't do anything about all of the above issues in the moment.

The driver's seat belt didn't work (lock in place), but we couldn't wait to book another truck. I would suggest not providing a U-Haul with this problem. Giving the cab a proper tidy would go a long way as well. There were dirty socks in the dash, an empty beer bottle on the right door, and a nice cellphone in the left door.

They need to be more proactive here, I returned the truck earlier than the time I was meant to drop it, but it wasn’t recorded on the system as return. No email to know exactly how much my usage cost up till this moment ( after two days)

Spent more than an hour trying to pick up the uhaul because the employee didn't know how to do it. Didn't have the truck I booked online, so we had to use a U-Haul. Didn't even ask for my driver's drivers license. Took out more than they said they were going to. System was broken and kept saying I had no money in my accounts. Returned it within half an hour-45 min to sit there for more than an hour again because they couldn't figure out how to refund me. Was late for appointments. Held up my driver who also didn't have the time to waste. Was told they had to mail my refund out, like I had a choice. Then I find out it will be 4-6 weeks before my refund is sent out and they got my wrong address. Worst experience in my entire life.

The first issue was the word lock not opening properly and taking 20+ minutes to open. The second issue was the soaked floor of the UHaul due to the giant hole in the roof of the truck. The third issue was I asked for a furniture dolly and paid for this, but ended up getting the small useless dolly that I didn’t even use. Normally, I have no issue with UHaul but this was the worst and most unprofessional experience I have had. I will not be renting with UHaul again.

I had to pay another period because when I asked the person at the counter, I said I can being the truck back whenever tonight and he said yes, we close at 10. So I continued with the truck most of the night and recieved a message at 8:30 saying that my period was over and that another family needed it. But I was quite far from being done and not close to the drop off location so I was not able to bring it back by 9. So the other people ended up not having their truck and I needed up paying 138$ instead of 67... I am very upset and disappointed

Floor of truck was rather dirty and ended up transferring dirt to my belongings. Also asked for and paid for a furniture dolly and didn't receive it, Uhaul customer service also ignored this fact and made me pay for the furniture dolly I never received. Nice one guys.

Location was convenient and clerk was helpful. Check-in is via the internet on your phone and verification of my ID took 15 minutes while standing in the parking lot, but that is not this locations fault, it is on UHaul.

I’m not sure where the responsibility lies but the truck came with a combination lock on the rear door that no one had a code for. The folks at TJs were very nice but they didn’t have this code and I spent more than an hour on hold and on the line with uhaul customer service and they couldn’t find it. It was nearly two hours after we first called that I finally got a call back from a very friendly uhaul rep who was able to find the code. This set things back on our move by several hours on a tight timeline. I requested a discount but nothing was offered. Please let me know if you can offer a refund of some kind for this.

Apart from the network outage causing some issues and confusion with checking the vehicle back in, the check out process was great! We loved being able to do everything online from our phone, it was very easy. This location is great, not too crowded, lots of space to maneuver but so too far away from us.

Payment machine failed. Truck rental and return process slow. Employee doesn't understand basic functions of the truck who accused me of modifying the truck when she accidentally turned off the odometer display. Truck was burning a ton of engine oil too and smelled terrible the whole time. Will not us this location again.
