The app should allow us to extend the rental if no one else has reserved it. That was very disappointing that it was not available in the app and the employee on the phone couldn't tell us the cost to extend nor if it was rented. You definitely lost out on money. I will most likely find another rental company.

The clerk was uninformed and very disrespectful and dismissive. He installed the hitch (I had car hitch added a year ago at this facility and was fine)upside down! He had the chains and extension wires dragging on the pavement. THe wires rubbed raw and of course the signal lites stopped working. Thankfully a trucker called my attention to it and urged me to get the hitch fixed as it was obvious that it was only 2 inches from pavement. I stopped at Uhaul in Clarksville, TN and they graciously repaired the hitch installation etc. He noted in file and took photographs of the NEW installation. He noted that the original clerk failed to upload a photo. I absolutely believe this clerk purposely sabotaged me. I am considering a legal action.

staff was unhelpful. instead of actually using all the information i provided online with the reservation they had to enter the same data again. they pointed to the general area of the trucks location so i had to hunt around for it

this location needs more front line staff. there was one gentleman handling phone calls and the line of customers waiting to get their rentals. he was very pleasant and helpful, just felt bad for him having to do everything. In addition, the gentleman that was hooking up the trailer was complaining that he had to lay down on his back to hook up the electrical to our SUV- isn't that part of his job.

Having worked for U-Haul several years ago I was less than impressed that now the employees don't leave the counter to bring the truck around for the customer. Nope, the customer gets the key at the counter, they get told where it is and turned loose. Then, the Condition of the truck, whoa. The inside of the cab was covered in dog hair. The box smelled like a kennel and had dog food still in it. And getting the truck up to speed I discovered it had a horrible death wobble at 55. Thankfully It was only a 1 day rental so we made due. The issues were reported to the fella at check in. Hopefully it is made safe and for people spending good money on a truck to move their valuables, there was a day yall prided yourself on quality.

Cruise control in the trucks would be a great start. Radios that work would be great. Honest price advertising is a FUCKING MUST! There's a huge fucking difference between the prices advertised on every sign, on every truck panel and every truck window. For example, the truck I used is advertised at $29.95 BUT that's only if I stayed within city limits. The actual price since I was moving out of town was $158 per day. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!?! Those 2 prices are no where near each other! I truly felt I was cheated or at the very least, i was lied to.

Picked up on a Saturday morning. I was the first one to walk inside and no one was there for about 20 minutes. Check in process itself went fine. I called later in the day to ask a question and whoever I talked to was very short with me and not very friendly.

I left my glasses box in the truck (I'm sure it fell on the floor) but if there was a thorough clean up of the truck cab (as one would expect during this pandemic) there was no effort to keep it in the lost and found.

The people at the desk both at check-in and check-out time did not wear masks. The person at the desk at check-in was rather abrupt, bordering on rude. When I returned the truck, there was a sign saying that someone would come to the truck to help close out the rental and to wait in the truck. But no one came to the truck. I finally had to go in to find that no one was at the desk either. After a few minutes someone showed up who was also not friendly. Your employees need to be trained to provide better customer service.

We made this reservation over two weeks before we were going to move. During the reservation process I never got a confirmation email that I had reserved my 26 ft super mover. I kept asking if it was reserved and the representative ( Brayden Smith) kept telling me yes. I got the email stating my 6x12 trailer had been confirmed. (I rented a 26ft mover and 6x12 trailer with a ramp). The day we were scheduled to move, we called and asked if we could pick up our equipment a little early. They had no record of us needing a 26 ft truck and had us using a 6x12 trailer with no ramp. They stated we had not reserved one. (We reserved the trailer til Sunday and the truck until Monday 4/17/21-4/19/21) after waiting for a few min on hold we were told the best that could be done was 24 hours. We were forced to alter our plans in order to make it work. Fortunately we were able to make it work, but if we were unable to this would have caused us to have to locate a storage unit which would have been an additional expense. The representative was able to fix the trailer no issue. Although the representative gave us a truck, no one seemed concerned that the previous representative had not made the reservation correctly from the beginning. To sum it up, we were very disappointed with the overall service.
