I had a much better experience than the previous time last year that I rented from this location. The staff who assisted me at pickup and drop off were excellent; very courteous and went over the drop off procedures. Everything was handled with efficiency and professionalism.

The only problem I found is that when you rent the vehicle you tell them that the vehicle has a half tank but in reality it is short and when you bring it back it has to be exactly at the half tank mark. This has happened to me both times within the last month

Kevin was awesome at pick up. I rented a trailer that was too big for my hitch so he quickly switched my reservation over to a smaller trailer. Rick at pick up was eager to help me drop off and got me back on my way super fast. Both were very nice and very helpful! DEFINITELY will go there again and recommend this location to all! I''ve had the same experience at 2 other UHauls: Brainard Rd, Hartford and South St, West Hartford.

Return was fine. Picking up was first initial contact and customer service was poor, unduly beligerentand downright hostile with rude comments and behavior unbecoming of a public assistant. I've worked in people management for nearly a decade and overall Uhaul employees behave as if overworked and underpaid..

Capital Avenue Hartford I an extremely well-run business, whoever is responsible i.e. employees/management should be seriously commended. I am a very demanding, skeptical, critical customer and person which I have been told more than once rises to the level of "PRICK" when I get my back up and I trust these people and admire their work ethic but most importantly what it means practically to me as a customer!.

Two things come to mind. First, a few basic instructions about the setup of the truck would have been helpful. For example, I did not realize that the truck engine always begins in "Load/haul" mode, or even what that meant, until I was almost done using the truck. A couple short words as I picked up the vehicle would have been helpful in this regard. Secondly, UHaul's business plan appears to be "Don't charge much for the basic rental in order to get the customer through the door, and then find a way to upcharge them for anything you can possibly add on as quickly as possible." It makes me, as a customer, feel like a target, rather than a client. The only other truck I have rented in the past year was from a different company, and it was a much more professional and pleasant feeling. Their upfront cost was higher than UHaul's, but there were no add-on's dangled in front of me, and the question about extra insurance was a small one, rather than the incredible hard sell in which UHaul engages.

Customer service was terrible. The manager was upset and he didn't care that there were customers in the store. Trucks were being returned and there was no one cleaning them and putting them back. The young man at the counter was not helpful when returning equipment. It truly left a sour taste. Too bad because this is a very convenient spot.

More serious employees. That know how to do there job fast. With there mask on at all times. Some of them seem like they don't care. Others seem like they may not have been trained the right way. One of the employees was FaceTiming someone while working. One of them just walk away to his lunch break and left the client waiting without finishing with te client first. They way they talk to clients is not professional & respectful.

Had to wait 45 min to get truck, even though I I had it pre-reserved. I paid 3 times the amount I thought I was going to pay because it wasn't explained to me that if I didn't bring it back to their location, I couldn't get the advertised offer. Also, I only had the truck for about 3-4 hours, but I was booked for 3 days. I just wanted out of store. I needed to leave.

U haul has an absolutely unusable web site for pre-registering for rental. The upload for the driver's license did not work even at Gig speed. But what is even worse is the after hours check-in. To expect a costumer to go through those things that should not be our responsibility (or face a $20.00 fee) is absolutely ridiculous . It is cold late at night and the Wifi signal is poor and the app is very cumbersome. I don't think I will be using U Haul again for an after hours drop off

For renters, accuracy is very important especially when you have to pay for something that was not recorded correctly. The problem I encountered was the gas was not recorded correctly and that there were dents/scratches that were not recorded also. The App is kind of intimidating to use for first-time users like myself, maybe if they could send the app to renters before they pick up their U-haul. They could get familiar with it so it would be easier to use. For the above reasons, I rate my experience a 2. Customer service I rate 5 stars.

I will never rent a truck from this company or location and here is why. I rent it yesterday 1/16/21 and no one explained me how to do the checkout online so after I dropped it off I try to do the checkout and it was asking for the pic but I already look the truck and put the key on the box so I couldn't take the pics but my contract expires on 1/17/21 at 7:00 am so I went there before that trying to get help and Leslie and Fred told me that it was to late because they already did the checkout so I explained them that my contract ends at 7:00 am and they still over charged my card whiteout helping me when my contract wasn't due yet so how I will get charge for something that is not even due???

People are dumping their furniture in front of the main access way. Not only does it make it inconvenient but it also make the storage look like a local dump. Your staff do a great job making it clean but that recycling idea that you guys got have to go because it simply turned into the local dump. 95% of the things that the people left is straight up GARBAGE that can not be salvage. Fix this problem immediately. Your staff do a great job of keeping the place clean.
