There was not enough people staffed. We were scheduled to unload our uboxes at 7 am. We arrived around 9am to give them time to get them out. We still had to wait until almost 10am to unload the first one. When watching the man on the forklift he was not very safe at all. He rimmed into other boxes as well as almost made one fall completely. No wonder I had several things that were broken.

I realize they are busy - this was my 6th or 7th rental at this location this year. But a simple thank you, or not pushing their way into the next door that's open for 2 seconds would go far with your customers. Everyone who is spending THEIR money likes to know that it's appreciated, don't they?

The Huntsville location has poor customer service. The representative at the desk mispronounced my name then assumed that that meant that that was confirmation that my order was placed. She simply could have asked for the order number, it's not that hard. The vehicle was not sanitized. That's the least the location could have done.

This location is extremely crowded and hard to pull into. We had to circle around several times due to the blocked drive. The employee was helpful but the parking lot was a complete mess and trying to pull a 26' uhaul was difficult.

The location had several strays hanging out in the parking lot and that's not safe at all late night. There was several places to park the truck but not a specific spot was arranged so it was placed where it could fit.

I have had so many issues with this rental. They made me drive to 3 locations before I finally got my rental I reserved. The app did not work to return the truck so they charged me a return fee.

The only negative thing I have to say is about Fuel. Just before I returned the truck I put fuel in it to fill it to where it was when I got it, which was almost Full, but not Full. When I returned it they said it was full when I got it and becasue I did not take a picture of it they were going to charge me $22 to fill it up. I was already tired, then I was pissed. No one told me to take a picture of the Fuel Guage or I would have. All said and done it was a good experience except for that.

If your staff forgets to go and unlock a customer's storage before they leave work and when the customer returns to unload the storage is locked, and then Uhaul extends the reservation for free because of the management's mistake, and u have driven less miles than u were charged for and on top of that they charge u for 2 days when u would have returned it in 3 hours if they had of did there job ...which is not to over charge me for their mistakes...this is ridiculous!

I was simply dropping off a trailer from a one way trip. Had to wait 30 minutes for somebody to rearrange units so there was room for me to leave the trailer. Nobody had on anything that looked like a uniform so couldn't tell who was employees. Customers waiting everywhere and personal vehicles blocking access.

I scheduled the pickup in Madison and went to that location only to find out they had moved the pickup location. They said they called and texted but I had no missed calls and zero texts. This has happened before and I should have expected the same issue to happen again. If you say you call then call. Most of the miles I put on the truck we're driving to the new far away location. If I wanted to rent from that site I would have.

I rated this Uhaul excellent only because of the customer service I received. There were only 2 folks working on a really busy Sunday morning with 10 people in line. Both were efficient and professional while trying to handle the line, help customers with hitches in 90 degree weather, and be positive.

The cab of the 15' truck smelled like cigarette smoke, and was filthy. There was a beverage spill that made it onto the ceiling, and the bag with the blankets and the dolly already had the seal broken. It was obviously not cleaned at all between me and the custer before. I just hope I wasn't charged for that.

We rented for less than two months and mice had infested the unit. Mouse bait was placed in the unit. Lots of feces and a dead mouse was found on our couch. The couch had holes in it due to mice. The property is dirty with lots of trash in the parking lot. Its in a sketch part of town. The bathroom smelled like urine from the floors and no soap in the dispenser. The employee was professional and clearly understaffed.

The University Drive location was fine but very understaffed and I had to wait about 30 minutes to get help with my return. Additionally, the original recommended return location that was sent to me via text (3002 N. Memorial Pkwy, Huntsville, AL 35811) was not open on Sunday (however the website for this location said they were open 1-5pm on Sunday) and I was not comfortable leaving the trailer in the lot. So this all added up to a less than satisfactory return experience.

Please notify customers quickly and conveniently when their preferred pickup location changes!! We arrived at our pickup time/location only to find out it had changed (within the past two hours) to a location 50 minutes in the wrong direction. Luckily someone else had cancelled at our preferred location, so we escaped unscathed. We had no idea! The confirmation phone call even confirmed our preferred location was still correct.

Justin is the number one reason I would return!! He did everything to make this an exceptional customer experience on one of the busiest weekends of the year - Graduation, end of the month, and holiday weekend! Justin was so patient and understanding, and he took the time to determine what I really needed vs what I had made a reservation for. That is best in class customer service. Thank you for valuing Justin Clark!

Way too little help. It's a busy location due to the University across the street and they are simply overwhelmed. Also, U-Haul tries to get you to work online and that leads to a lot of scheduling and system issues.

Tyson is a really dedicated person. Treated me and all other customers with respect and a sense of urgency to complete our respective transactions. Even when overwhelmed with customers returning equipment and asking questions he maintained a truly professional poise. Give this man a raise and a couple of days off!

There is an infestation of rodents at the storage facility. Unit lighting or paid access to an electric outlet would be an asset.

This U-haul facility was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the reservation was originally made at the U-haul storage on Spartman drive and it was given to someone else that morning and they didn’t have any other units available. So they sent me to this one on University drive. I was very disappointed that the storage unit I reserved had been given away and that I had to drive to another location.

I didn't rent a vehicle from u haul. I have a storage unit with you all. I will say you all don't have adequate parking for your customers. I could not park in the parking lot to take care of business. I wouldn't rent from you all just because of the way the parking is set up.

First of all, there are not enough people working at the University Dr. store to meet the volume of customers. Secondly, I have never heard of any storage unit that requires the customer to purchase the storage company's lock, so I did not appreciate being threatened with having the lock I purchased for the unit I was provided cut off if I didn't purchase a U-Haul circular lock. It's bad enough that U-Haul has some of the highest rates for storage units that I have ever seen, but to feel pressured to spend money on the company's circular lock is especially horrible. It didn't help that I saw other units that did not have the U-Haul circular locks on them. There was also some confusion about the terms of the one month's worth of free storage. I was told by two U-Haul representatives that I qualified for a month's worth of free storage with no stipulations added or explained in either case. If the unit was not offered for free, I would never had bothered using a U-Haul storage unit. Finally, as I answered in the introductory questionnaire, no, I would not ever recommend a U-Haul storage facility to anyone.

On the day we came to empty our storage units we found rat feces all over our belongs and that our household items were destroyed. As we worked to go through our packages we found 4 rats in our boxes and amongst our belongings. When we asked for assistance we were rudely dismissed and told "file a claim" and given a pamphlet. When we called the number to customer service we were on hold for over two hours and eventually ended the call once our movers loaded all of the items we could take home. Thankfully we didn't take any rats to our new home, however we lost a lot of items we needed and ended up spending much more money to replace items i.e. towels, dishes, sheets, a loveseat and a recliner, wires for our surround sound system which had been eaten through. I would never recommend this storage place, it is not well maintained and there is no reprieve for your damaged items.

Staff was exceptional and the location (office, lots, and storage area) were well organized, clean, and maintained. One downside is that access is limited to only times when staff is available due to a key sign-out procedure; this impacted my plans greatly when I planned to remove items from storage at 5PM on 25 May to place in my new home (closed on it 26 May). On 22 May I personally spoke with the site manager and confirmed that the site would be open for regular hours on 25 May. Unfortunately in the morning of 25 May the site manager decided to close the site early that day, thereby constraining me to waiting until the weekend to retrieve and use my stored household goods - because I stored a lot, I could not clear out the storage into a trailer, move the trailer, unload the trailer at home, and return the trailer during a 24-hour period until the weekend. This unpublished impromptu closure negatively affected my family. Please decide upon and post / publicize non-standard hours at least two weeks in advance in order to facilitate customer planning.
