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.

The attendant was very friendly, professional & helpful. Appreciate that. Will be renting in the future for sure!!! Our experience in dealing with Home Depot rental was a bad experience. The UHAUL company is so much better than them any day. Thank you!

I had a confirmed registration at the Bait Casters location near Carleton Place, but I when I arrived, I was told the trailer wasn't available and had to drive a long distance to the Almonte uhaul location to get a trailer.

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!!

Help with the hookup and safety check, but you only had one staff on hand so I understand. I knew what I was doing but many don't.

The trailer could use a hand crank jack to raise at 250 pounds it more than one person can handle . Other than that excellent trailer to haul , 😁

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!!

I am not sure very convenient and service was great at pick up. What I did not understand is that I was quoted 30.00 for the day no other costs were discussed. Then I get the bill and it is over 500.00. Maybe explaining all information so the person has the right cost at the onset. Alice-Anne

Reservation was not correct when picking up trailer despite uhaul website confirming details and online preregistration completed. Charged for larger trailer (picked up 5x8 cargo trailer as per order but charged 6x8). Tried to talk to owner and confirming what we were charged but he he also runs a gas bar from the same location and was told after a brief conversation "I have to go I have 3 cars waiting for gas".

Returned the truck to the Almonte location, yes it's a holiday so the place is closed, however the key drop box is nowhere to be found so the key got tossed over the fence! So hey UHaul give me a call if your looking for your stupid key.

I was charged twice and a total of $165 dollars was taken out of my account! I returned it early and didn't get the dollys I booked and was still charged almost $200! I have never paid this much for a uhaul and am VERY pissed off with the service I received. I want my money back and will be calling head office. This is a fucking joke. I'd be hoping someone contacts me regarding this or I will be posting this publicly and will make sure to warn others not to use this service.

We were delayed by almost an hour due to incorrect information from the online booking. We booked the teuck for 8 am but we arrived to find the location didnt open until 9. So we waited for person to arrive, ffind our reservation and get the truck. Not his fault, just online booking problem.

This rental trucks box was not cleaned. Did not discover this until box door was opened at move location,much mud and broken glass,cleaned up enough to get my stuff in. Should not be charged $25 for cleaning,charge the previous renter,this location should have checked box before rental.
