Forklift operator who loaded the UBox onto the trailer punctured the door of the UBox. The blade also punctured a box inside containing $2000 stereo speakers. Thankfully the speakers were not damaged, but the margin was literally 1 inch. I strongly recommend placing valuables toward the center of the box with less precious cargo near the walls.Christopher B.

I know you can't stop drivers from smoking when they rent a van, but the smell was so strong that some of my boxes carried it with themAlyssa W.
Efficient, friendly, accurate and professional, couldn't have done better myself.Beatrice L.
When returning the truck the sign says to wait and someone will come and finish the return. I sat in the truck for 20 minutes and tried to call the front desk. Could not reach anyone so I went into the store no one was busy they said just leave the key in the truck I'm all set!? I wish they told me that when I first rented the truck!Mark F.
Drop off and pick-up was quick and easy. Good customer service. Thank you.STEPHEN B.

The GM and all the employees are always very polite even when they are super busy which is every time I have been there 3 or four times now for trailers and its a great experience every time. They always try to help as fast as they can when there's lines and with a good attitude.VICTORIA L.

I rented a 6x12 trailer to go one way from Maine to upstate New York 4 months ago for $ 139.00 I rented the same trailer this weekend to return home and it cost me $ 635.00. I will not be renting from uhaul again.RICHARD G.

Sadly at my home drop off location the person working (2 present on location; 1 worker and 1 in pajamas talking and following the worker assuming boyfriend/girlfriend) It was clear the employee was bothered by my drop off. He began undertaking cause of why drop off should not happen at this location, then in harsh manner inspected trailer then pushed the trailer with metal on ground. It was the rudest welcome home and very out of place and unwarranted. Please do better.Curtis A.

Give a call back when the customers call. Call center left several notes for this location to give me a call both before and after I picked up the trailer. I haven't heard from them and still waiting for my refund on an item I haven't received 1 week after dropping off the trailerYalin C.
I had trouble using the online after hours return. Much too difficult. I gave up after 30 minutes. I was charged an additional $20 for my trouble. I called the facility and the $20 charge was removed.Brian C.

When our rental in Waterville wasn't available, I was happy Augusta stepped up to provide the truck we needed. Even when the front tire blew 15 miles up the road on our way home, Augusta found a replacement and covered the inconvenience by offering a free day's rental to cover our lost time. Thank you.Debra C S.

I had a confirmation to pick up a car dolly at the Brunswick Maine U-Haul location for 3/17/22. On the night of 3/16/20 I received a phone call that they were making me drive an hour north to pick up the dolly that was dropped off in Augusta Maine. This is absolutely ridiculous, I had to drive an hour in the wrong direction. I am a nurse and was supposed to go to work after I used this and instead had to call out. The person I spoke with on the phone told me there wasn't a single car dolly anywhere in the hour and a half I was driving south at any U-Haul locations which I know was a lie because I called myself. So basically, they made me drive to Augusta to pick up someone else's car dolly so that I will drop it off in Lisbon after I used it not even the Brunswick location. I cannot even believe this is some thing that would happen. The person was rude on the phone and told me she deals with this all the time. What kind of business is this? Even the kid I dropped it off to in Lisbon couldn't understand why they made me do this. And I can tell you why because they wanted someone to pick it up and bring it to Lisbon. Again, I'm a nurse, dealing with unbelievable stuff right now in the hospital and I can't believe that this happened. What an awful business plan and what awful people. To say to me â€œdo you want it or not, if you don't drive to Augusta then you don't get a car dollyâ€ Who would say that to someone? I would like a return phone call by someone who can talk to me about why this just happened and I would like my money back to cover the gas I had to pay for. What about the gas money it cost me to go pick this up? $4.20 a gallon right now in my truck probably cost me $40! That was two hours of driving I was not expecting to do in my truck. Also, just for the record, and I told the gentleman at the Lisbon Maine location when I dropped it off, the person who put it on my truck barely even looked at me or the dolly and the dolly slings were so rusted I couldn't get them off the car tires afterwards I needed to use a prybar with a mechanic. Maybe once in a while someone grease fittings? God, what an awful experience.Nathan P.
At Virginia location, Let them know to meet in adjacent parking lot that holds their equipment.Michelle D.
I would actually clean the truck and make sure the back door had been closed and secured! Obviously there was NO Covid protocol!!!!! I had garbage and cup holders full of water and a terrible experience and your employees told me it was my fault for not checking out my equipment??? Really! Horrible customer service or better yet No customer service!Genevieve R.

Arrived a whole half hour before my scheduled pick up time and they let me collect the van I rented early. Awesome!Russell M.
I waited in line for more than 15 min at both pick up and drop off since there was only one person doing everything, the vehicle was covered with snow and not even ready, I had to go locate it in the line up of vehicles, the drivers seat was lower in the left side so I was uneven in my seat trying to drive, the driveway was super Icy and slick and I almost fell 3 times.Bridget N.
There were very few available customer parking spaces when I was there because a car was parked crooked covering 2 parking spots. There were 3 customers getting waited on, and no parking left when I got there. I asked about the car and if someone could move it. I was told it was the supervisors car and she was out of town. Can't say as I was happy about that. However the young man was wonderful and treated us very well and went out of his way above and beyond for service.Laura D.

I did mobile pick up and got there first before the store opened. I was given the wrong number for the truck so then had to wait 20 minutes inside. Then the door on the truck in the back was open so it snowed inside. The outside lock to latch the door was frozen solid. The truck could barely hit 40 before it shook uncontrollably (we had to take the turnpike) and it was a 45 minute drive for the move.Nicole P.
Unfortunately there are not many other options available in area. The truck I reserved did not have all the features listed online when I got there in person. The clerk in the morning was extremely rude. The truck we had to upgrade to had been left open during the snow storm on the Friday(day before our pick up). It was filled with snow. The clerk begrudgingly swept some of the snow out of the back of the truck. Overall picking up the truck took over 45 minutes. Drop off went much better as staff in the store had changed. The person (Zachary?) was responsive and courteous even with a busy store to run alone.Francesca S.

Severally understaffed, grumpy employee; yes one employee. App did not work, even uninstalled while there, didnt work on reinstall. I have rented two trucks in last week, and both drove like they were ready to die. Pictures looked good, but in reality trucks were scratched to hell. One of them had white nail polish all over into cover up what I assume was flaking paint. Overall, not the greatest experience.Andrew J.

Zack in the augusta maine facility was more than accomadating and helped us with a flash light while there is no light inside the storage unit we rented and also let us know that the trucks were going to be moved and the back was to be snow plowed so we could get the rest of our stuff out before our free month ran out . Above normal customer service . He has great people skills and needs a pay raise 🥰Stacey Z. | Overall Experience

I'm very upset that we returned boxes we bought that were not needed. I was told I needed to bring the receipt in to be reimbursed for them. I did bring the receipt, but instead of being reimbursed, I was charged again. We are exhausted from moving and whomever I spoke to on the phone was not very friendly or helpful with this matter. Keep the $29.00 and I will just pass along the poor customer service.MAUREEN C.
The guy (Zachary?) that checked me out and back in was very nice. He was alone there and he was busy, but that didn't seem to impact his attitude. He was very friendly and helpful. You have a good employee there. I rent from that location a few times a year and never have had a problem.ADAM F.

The cargo van smelled of heavy smoke, plus the passenger windshield wiper was not operational. The gentleman fixed it and we went about 5 miles down the road and the driver windshield wiper stopped working. We had to turn around to have him fix this issue. There was no one inside the store or on property and we waited 10 min for someone to arrive. Once fixed again we were on our way. The gentleman was great and we appreciated that he was able to fix the issue.JOC C.
Very good customer service.Melissa W.
The pickup process is painstakingly long. I spent a lot of time out in the cold taking all these silly pictures, but the U-Haul app would crash and freeze in the middle of it, thus restarting the process. The light in the cab did not work. And the icing on the cake; even though we didn't use much they charged $61 for not adding fuel, when it was previously stated the fee would be $30. Unreal.Daulton B.
The 15 foot box truck was showing its age. 199,400 miles. Ripped seat. Poorly fitting, drafty doors. Mechanically sound, though, and it worked well as did the auto hauler trailer. The staff at the Augusta store were first rate. Friendly. Knowledgeable.Rene O.

Staff was not helpful in research into account and charges related to the account, told to call customer service as they sat and watched, refused to service after being asked to look into charges nobody could seem to find that was linked with a reservation # and order #. Why would a company provide a customer with such reference numbers if you have no way to research with them, gives your customers and future customers a false sense of trust in company that refuses to stand by their word and then refuses to help a customer when they are being told they are rude for inquiring. I’m allowed to be frustrated that my confirmed reservation was cancelled and charges from UHaul on my debit card could not be located and refused to give the merchandise purchased without the researched receipt. Bad customer service for such a high priced storage unit. Let’s hope the rest of my interactions through out this process improve.Jami L. | First Impressions
Uhaul is a great company to work with. I have rented trucks from them numerous times and it is always hassle-free. Recently rented a climate controlled storage unit from them and it was also a great experience. They keep the building clean and secure. Very customer oriented company.SHERYL W. | Overall Experience
The pricing is steep, we where told when we first inquired that they had units " half the size of a two car garage!" We thought sweet okay for that price that's great.... come to find out it was actually 10 times smaller than that and we needed to utilize 2 units instead of just one!( thank fully staff on was able to help work out a deal for this false information and took the first month of of the second one so we had a 2 for 1 month deal, but all we had was a couch a bed Frame( in peices), a box spring, and a few loose items, these took up 90% of both units " half the size of a two car garage!" Not!, and the late fees are ridiculous one day late and you charge $20 for a "delinquent Fee" I appreciate the storage availability.. but again the prices, lies, and late fees are what took had us move out!Schyler H. | Overall Experience
I signed my contract repeatedly and it never stuck in the system until I did it online. I repeatedly changed my address and left a credit card but never was charged as expected. The store locked my storage unit and would not reply to my messages until corporate got involved. I know times are hard but this was ridiculous.

The unit I reserved was an 8x10. Reservation on the books for two months. Upon arrival the unit is about a 6x8 if that and no other units available. Not to mention the astronomical price. I went elsewhere and got a 10x25 for the same price. Extremely unhappy.DESIREE K. | Overall Experience

Heather Poore is OUTSTANDING! First, she took my initial phone call, answered all my questions and made me feel comforted in having to handle a last-minute, unplanned move of my college student due to coronavirus. Then when I arrived from NJ the next day, her smiling face met me and she again calmly explained everything and got me set up. This is my first time renting storage; she was patient, helpful and didn't rush me. Then I made three trips to the facility in the next 24 hours. I was impressed with the cleanliness, the access to carts, the security, etc. I can't say enough about how Heather went above and beyond and how all the little things she did added up to reducing my stress in a time when I greatly appreciated it. Also, thanks for the one-month free for displaced college students. I thought that was a very classy and empathetic move by UHaul. You earned my business and Heather is the reason you'll keep my business.Sandra B. | First Impressions
