Train employees at this location customer service and to clean the trucks. We have rented twice from this location and both times trucks were filthy. 1st time there was not enough gas to even start the truck. Employees make customers head to back lot and take pictures of gas gauge and milage then have to run back into store to show the picture then back out to the lot to pick up the truck. Seems like making the customer do their work for them. And i know they don't clean the trucks at all. When we showed her a picture of the filthy state she just said yah ok. Not happy with this location at all

Make sure the reservation you make agrees withe printed rental agreement . It was 24 hrs out and I was charged an extra $75 for an extra day. Was credited back when I called them ,but had I not caught it I would have been out that cash.

The only reason I would recommend it is because it is the only location in Summerland, BC. I reserved a 15' truck for my move and the truck in the size I requested was not available. They did not have blankets or dollies available, so I had to use whatever was in the truck. They were able to provide me a truck, but it was significantly larger than what I needed. They gave me a 26' truck which was the only available truck. Fortunately they were able to accommodate by giving me the price I was originally quoted. The 26' truck was difficult to maneuver , which is why I requested a 15' truck. I would highly recommend for the location to follow up with trucks that are not returned on time as it impacted the move significantly.

The fuel return line from the engine to gas tank was disconnected. I discovered this after driving from the depot to my house, where the moving helpers noticed that gasoline was spilling dramatically from the hole in the gas tank all over the road and my driveway when I backed in. This depot has the least helpful people ever. I have twice ordered trucks to pick up from this location and they have NEVER had any of the supplies we ordered. Both times, we have to drive an hour and a half round trip to the nearest real U-Haul location to get the ropes and blankets and stuff. The staff at the depot didn't care one bit. It is a shady business too. It's a gas station as well as a U-Haul depot, so I suspect they drain the tanks themselves because the tanks are always almost empty, forcing customers to fill up at the gas station. Please investigate them and consider not using them. They make U-Haul look really bad.

We ordered 2 dollies and only got 1. The back of the truck was covered in gravel...not just a few rocks but enough to make me wonder if the guy who rented before us was hauling gravel. It was rather pathetic AND my wife had to search for the one dollie she did find looking from truck to truck.

Katelyn S.

I was told to go find my own dolly by looking through the other trucks, and when I turned around the service attendant was already walking back to the store. I looked through all of the remaining trucks but couldn't find the dolly I had needed. The back of the truck had bits of garbage left from the last user. He also entered the wrong city for my drop off (even though I made my own reservation online). I was also asked to sign a copy of a contract before it was emailed to me to read.

The only problem with picking up the truck in Summerland was that I had reserved a truck in Kelowna, and was then phoned the day before and told no trucks were available, and would have to go to Summerland or Penticton. Not very good, U-Haul. A “reservation” should count for something.

I apologize for this being long-winded. We were supposed to pick up our truck in Kelowna (booked about a week in advanced). The day before we were supposed to pick it up, they called and said our truck was only available for pickup in Summerland (45 minutes away). We were supposed to get a confirmation email with the new location details but never did, so I had to call back and get it over the phone. I had already done the online check-in days in advanced, however I was asked almost every question again, in person. The guy helping us, didn't even show us where the truck was, or do a walk-through with us. He gave me the keys and said "I think it's out back somewhere, go find it, make sure it starts and take a pic of the fuel and milage". After all that, he tried emailing me the invoice but again, it wasn't working. I gave him two other emails and it still didn't work. Then he printed it up for me instead, but the charges were cut off of the page. I just ended up taking a picture of the screen. THEN he informed me that the two dollies and blankets I had ordered, were not at that location and I had to go to Westbank to pick them up. THEN as I was driving down the highway, I noticed it smelled like weed. That's when I noticed half a joint, sitting where the odometer is. (Good thing I didn't get pulled over for something). Upon closer inspection, there were old snacks sitting up on the dash and greasy finger-prints on the stereo buttons. This is unacceptable during the best of times, but right now, during the Covid 19 pandemic, this is ridiculously negligent. There was obvious zero effort put into cleaning/disinfection between customers. On the upside, the fellow who helped us when we dropped it off in Victoria was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. I never really make complaints unless its something really bad. Overall, I am extremely disappointed with the service we recieved.

Checkin was more of an inconvenience and annoyance to the employee than anything. Didn't show me the truck or anything just took payment and pointed me out back. Truck wasn't swept out very well with used wipes in the cab. Furniture pads unavailable (third time this has happened with uhaul rental).

The equipment that I booked on-line was not in the truck - which then made me late into Vernon as I had to stop in Westbank - I was very impressed with the Westbank site. The equipment was put in my vehicle very quickly and that was very much appreciated.

I've faced complications with uhaul overall - on the first contract with insurance being charged for a month when I had asked, and got agreement from this location, to have it not added to the renewal. On the second contract I have been overcharged by uhaul by ~350 and since I was using debit, had to float the final payment even though it had already been removed from my checking account (ie I was not credited the amount charged to my debit, before having to re-pay the final charge). Both were situations I just wanted to work through in collaboration. One employee was absolutely amazing and helpful, the other was confrontational, rude, and feel he has a lot to learn about co-solving problems with clients. Perhaps it's a cultural issue in dealing with women. Overall I've spent 4.5k on uhaul this summer. The location owner and the one employee I dealt with mostly were amazing. Feedback for regional uhaul - got a very rude text the morning of a renewal with RCMP collection threat for non return, when I had extended the contract the night before.

Keep devices well maintained. Trailer breaks didn't hook up/work and hitch connection was concerning. Trailer itself was in good shape. Also, would be nice to have more units at this site as pickings are slim.

I did the online checkin to save time, that didn't matter. I still spent 45 min waiting for them to get the computer working. I ordered a two wheel dolly and all they had was a 4 wheel furniture dolly.

I had no idea in Summerland where to return it. The gentleman in Prince George never gave me a location to drop off. Maybe it was on my receipt, I never even looked so it's possible. I went to a different place in Summerland via Google but there were no Uhaul trucks or trailers around and then I did manage to find the other location in Summerland.

Got to Kelowna and was told my pickup location was Princeton BC. An 8 hour round trip. Or I could have a truck. So went to the dealer and he put my name on one at Trout Creek - Summerland BC. I had no choice but to go on 4 hour round trip. I had already driven for 12 hours (1000 kilometres) from Alberta to Kelowna. ( the problem? A flat tire on the reserved unit) There should be a better backup plan. I didn't leave Kelowna for 3 days. Repairs could have been made. Instead, I was bullied into a very onerous trip to Summerland. One way with a pickup at the other end is not in UHaul scope of service. Better to pick it up before you leave. They don't guarantee a unit for pickup and will have no sympathy for your dilemma... 1000 km from home and deadlines to meet!

Don't make the customer go find their rental truck in the yard. I was passed the keys and asked to find the vehicle and report back with the odometer reading and the current level of fuel in the vehicle. There were at least 6 trucks scattered throughout the compound and the last vehicle I checked was the correct one. I consider Uhaul fortunate that I am an honest consumer. The Employee was not very friendly and when questioned I received a rude, uneducated response. There was garbage left in the van from the previous user and I did notice until later on in the day and therefore I had to dispose of the waste myself. Not impressed...this booking Had already become inconvenient to me as I received a call from a Uhaul employee on the afternoon of the day prior to the pick up and was informed that there were not going to be any trucks available at the location I was originally scheduled at; therefore, I had to miss 3 hours of work to drive an hour out of town to pick up the vehicle.

This is the second time I've booked a truck at this location. Both times I booked online and ordered blankets and equipment. Both times there were no blankets or equipment and I had to pick up from another location. TERRIBLE! The truck had a broken and completely useless windshield wiper and the driver's side washer sprayer wasn't working at all. I rented the truck in a snow storm and couldn't see due to these two issues causing a significant safety issue. TERRIBLE! Also, it's Canada in the winter and the tires did NOT meet safety standards. TERRIBLE! Never renting a Uhaul again!

Double check trailers once returned, the one I rented had had a strap cut by a previous renter. I had my own ratchet straps so it wasn't a big deal but for someone else it could have been.

We had to go around back and find the truck ourselves. The guy never looked over the truck with us for damage, which there was and I took a photo of it. He never showed us how to work the inside instruments to save gas going through the mountains and rainy weather. We started out with an 1/8 of a tank not the 1/4 you claim ( also made a note of this ). We still had over $70.00 dollars worth of gas left when we dropped the truck off. To compensate for our bad experience with this move a credit on the gas would really be appreciated . If we had known about the gas saver we would not have had to fill up so many times. This employee needs to be more helpful to his customers. I do not know his name.

The break lights on the trailer did not work and they had no other trailer of the same size we reserved in case something was wrong. Had to buy magnetic lights for our travel as time was a crunch for moving and didn't have time to go to another location.

Trailer that was reserved for me was hooked up to a UHaul van. Trailer that was on lot had a different unit number and clerk had a very difficult time changing reservation. I did online check out before arriving at location to save time, that didnt save anytime. I was extremely disappointed at amount of time it took to finally get everything organized.

The 2 people I spoke to at the head office I was not impressed with! I was told at the Trout Creek location that the trailer could be returned to Osoyoos - closest U-Haul location. The office called while I was enroute and said if it was returned to Osoyoos there would be an additional charge of $354.70 - this is ridiculous - the trailer rental was approximately $80.00 but that much to drop at another location 1 hour away - will never rent again from U-Haul!

We had a reservation for 9am on Sunday. My husband showed up at 9am. The gas station and office was closed. My husband waited half an hour, then called me. I confirmed our reservation was actually for 9am and called around. The guy eventually opened the office at 9:40pm. He kept not only my husband waiting, but also the two friends helping us move that day, who showed up at U-Haul at 9am. Even 9am is late to be open for moving day...i'm sure most people would want to get started earlier. Then they didn't have the right equipment for us. We had reserved a furniture dolly and blankets. They had neither. I would never use this location again, for our next move, which will be a big one to Vancouver Island. Very disappointed with U-Haul and the lack of customer service.
