The young guy at the gas station at drop off was great, helped me remove the trailer from my truck as it was too heavy to lift myself

Charged the wrong price for the vehicle received $40 per day vs the 19.99 per day on the windshield. Charged for fuel at the 3/4 tank mark, when it was just above that when we received it.

When you reserve items make sure the items are there upon arrival. I had reserved 20 moving blankets for my move and when picking up the moving truck, I discovered they only had 1 blanket and charged me $5 for that blanket usage. I also filled the truck half full over what I was supposed to and received $14.83 for this when gas is $155.9 a liter.

There was no signs or any direction as to where to park the truck when we returned it to this location. There was no clear markings for a drop box to put the keys after we return the truck .I will never use this location again

Thankfully there was a 5x8 trailer when I got there. I had booked a pickup at that location but they didn't have me in their system so they had to make some calls to authorize me to take that one away. that was stressful. not sure why that happened

We booked our uhaul over 2 wks in advance, for 8am. When we tried to confirm this reservation, the pick up time was changed to 3:pm! This was totally unacceptable & inconvenient for us. Uhaul told us there was nothing they could do. Unbelievable! Incredibly bad service. The man in Almonte did try to encourage the renter before us to return the uhaul asap . We appreciated his effort - but are very upset with uhaul booking.

Great experience! The 2 attendant's who assisted us in pick up and drop off were super. In addition to helping us, they served customers at the gas pumps all while maintaining their composure and friendly service. This was our first rental with Uhaul and we will use this location again.

The cap for the coolant was sitting on top of the container under the hood and not screwed on. Had this not have been noticed the coolant likely would have leaked out and the truck overheat during the move.

I rent the Van. It is four season tires , not snow tires on the van. It is not good on county road and stop by snow after load. I purchase the one day insurance from U-Haul , I called the U-haul , they did not have the service. I am CAA member , CAA does not have service for U-haul. I wait 2 hours, a neighbor used his tractor to pull it out If you are moving in winter, better to find a good driver, I chose the small van in U-haul , but I really drive the big van , my experience is not good enough to drive in winter.

They gave me a truck that was iced over and then the windshield wiper broke on the driver's side while on the highway during a snowstorm. The vehicle was unsafe to drive as the owner did not remove the ice for me. This almost caused multiple accidents. I then had to double back to Ottawa to have the truck fixed, causing me to go over my mileage, add more gas to the truck and forcing me to pay my movers an extra 2 hours to sit around and wait for me. Moreover I had to buy windshield washer fluid as it was empty, costing me more money once again. This was a horrendous experience with uHaul.

The trailer I had reserved the week before for an eight day rental did not have functioning lights. The agent gave me an upgrade at the same price to get me on the road quickly. He got me hooked up and away within 15 minutes. It served my needs perfectly

The guy was very nice, but not very knowledgeable, He only gave me a $100 refund because I told him I had given $100 deposit, I got a uhaul statement saying my refund was $125 but he did t know that But he was very very nice.

The lights didn't work on trailer rented. After hooking up and starting to leave. Had to switch and get another trailer, witch was bigger and heavier. Didn't want that one cause transmission on old truck drive weak. And was stopped on way back with load on by OPP cause on back of truck what was caring to officer wasnt secure enough. Also the officer mentioned about uhaul trailer tires were pretty wore out. Pointing out one on left hand side almost bald. Told me to tell dealer rented from. I was in a rush when brought back so didn't get to share with uhaul dealership.

This is a comment for U-Haul and not this particular dealer. I was NOT impressed when my pick up location was changed - I was not advised and was not even aware that this happened. It caused a significant delay to my live plans AND I ended up over the allowed mileage which resulted in an additional charge!!! Not impressed at all.

Your support of rural dealers is horrific! I can't tell you how many times I reserve a vehicle from my local place only to get an email and call from another rep telling me that my reservation was cancelled but rebooked at another location 45 minutes away. FIGURE OUT YOUR DEALER RELATIONS BECAUSE YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE STUCK IN THE MIDDLE.

I reserved a trailer for 7:30pm and arrived to find the location closed! Spent 40 mins on the phone and spoke to 3 different agents before one was helpful enough to help me make this reservation for 7am the next morning. The problem was I need to be loaded up and gone by 6:30am. All of this made me 1.5 hrs late for my appointment which is unacceptable. Was offered a $50 compensation sent to a different automated systems which after waiting for 10 more mins nobody picked up, no acknowledgement of being on hold, just blank empty phone line, so I hung up. Very frustrated with my U-haul experience!!

Tail light not working, extremely low tire pressure and lock for hitch ball was seized and wouldn't turn more than half way. The guys working there are not only responsible for u haul but also pump gas and fill propane. To much to handle for a single employee!!
