False advertising - facility is NOT at all secure. Doors are hollow core cardboard making break in easy. Supposed electronic security is non-existent and/or broken.PETER C. | Overall Experience
When I returned the truck, during business hours, no employee came to assist. Three employees were standing in the main lobby area and as I left, after completing the online return, came outside for a smoke break. I was very disappointed in the apparent lack of consideration for the client. I normally have wonderful service at this location, and was disappointed to see it not occur today.Karlie B.
Dealt with the Assistant Manager. He was expedient and professional. Even helped me to resolve an issue I had with a UHaul rental from the previous day, at a DIFFERENT location. Great service.Jeff G.

Your staff at Welland Ave did not know the height of the truck! The first guy took a guess at 12' and left it at that. The second phone call a different guy at least went out to read it off the side of the truck (which was still a foot higher than the height I measured).Ron S.

Friendly knowledgeable staff and excellent service.Christiane R.
Because someone else had a large load to move and had brought many people, all of the moving equipment was being used and therefore I had to hand load my unit. I understand that it is "first come, first served but at 73 years old with a bad hip it made the move very difficult. I actually used my own small wheeled carton. Perhaps a few more pallet trucks in the "new" facility would be helpful. I cannot really fault U-Haul...it was more the attitude of the other customer. I did come back after 7 pm and there were pallet trucks available. Your staff were very helpful as usual and had all of the necessary paperwork ready on arrival. "I didn't want to keep you standing for a long time so I got it all ready"..THANK YOUJOAN F. | First Impressions
You need to pro-rate your monthly storage. It's not right to have to pay a full month ($170) for only three days storage.BRIAN M. | Overall Experience
When calling in to pay my storage bill, I was initially charged a full month for only 3 days storage due to their policy not to pro-rate. Later, when I went in to pick up a truck I brought this to the attention to the in-store rep Aysha, she actually refunded us! The service and facility has always been great, but Vine Street Location is the only one we'll use, (when in St.Catharines). Thanks Guys!BRIAN M.

Worst ever. Staff all stood around while people waited in line. I had to listen to one of them talk about the theme of some decorations for a party and also listen to them tenderize them. I was offended as well as mistreated. Every person working 07/30 was an embarrassment. Disgusting.Jesse P.

The check in was a little onerous. A dedicated app where personal info could be stored (credit card, drivers license etc) would make for a more streamlined process, but that's nothing to do with this location. Otherwise, pretty good overall.Neil A.
Good customer service, always friendly and pleasant to deal with.Ian A.
The most friendly staff I have ever ever dealt with 😌Crystal G.
The employee who served me wasn't friendly at all. They weren't miserable. No hello. No smile. Very little eye contact. I didn't even know they worked there until they walked behind the counter and sat down. The trailer I rented has a dip or hump on the floor that made loading and unloading a bit difficult. Two tires on one side were worn down to almost the wear strip. I was worried one would burst when the trailer was loaded. The attendant at the end of the day when I dropped the trailer off was very friendly. Smiled, and very pleasant to deal with.Mike D.

We dealt with Brendan or Brandon not sure what his name was and Jenna. Jenna was wonderful as always. She is always very friendly, helpful, personable and just a fantastic person to deal with - knows her job inside and out. Brenden or Brandon or whatever his name is spoke very quietly and was hard to hear and most of what he said was illegible. Myself and the customer before me both commented to him about it. He was very very very very slow. To the point that what should have taken 5 minutes took 20 minutes. I had pre-checked in but he couldn't see that until pointed it out to him. He wanted to do it all over again and I did not have time for that which was why I did the pre check in. Omg it was just a terrible experience with him and when I explained to him that I had pre checked in I got total attitude which I called him out which started more attitudeSandra B.

The service was excellent. The only thing I believe needs improvement is the automated phone system. I was a few minutes late returning the van, and when I attempted to call the automated system told me the wait time was 30 minutes. I called back and pressed 0 and got someone right away. Overall great.Owen F.

We had to reschedule pick up and this was handled easily and clearly. We picked them up the next day and all items were ready. The items were returned and the associate was quick in handling the return and checking the items. The ambiance and layout and location of the store are highly recommended for the best service.Ramachandran S.

Haven't rented in quite some time. Extremely disappointed that they force you to keep a dolly and blankets strapped inside the truck box, making that area unusable (if you didn't need to use it). Otherwise, everything else was fine regarding the process.Robert P.

Alyssa, Nathan and Brandon were my experience with Uhaul storage. Brandon and Nathan made it somewhat fun with their professional way and yet fun signing up and filling out all the boring form. I appreciate Alyssa sign me out and carrying out that process professionally and kind to listen and smile very polite and sweet. I can imagine their day of customers and appreciate how I was treated like I was the only one. Thanks very muchcynthia h. | Overall Experience
The Manager of this location was ignoring customers and talking loudly to a friend while 3 people waited in line for nearly 15 minutes to be served. I had to go over and interrupt her to bring this obvious thing to her attention. It seemed especially inappropriate because she was loudly exclaiming how she was a manager there for 20 years and on and on. She acted surprised when I politely interrupted her which I thought was ironic because she was literally talking about how "nothing gets past her". It would be nice to have staff promptly serve customers and if the Manager of the branch would lead by example. The gentleman in front of me was very frustrated. Thanks.Cathryn H.

We rented one of the smaller trucks and faild to inform us there was no third seat so we had to upgrade at an extra cost. When i questioned what im going to do with my second son wellnyou can get the bigger truck we didnt need but we have toncharge you an extra fee. The first girl told us they never had them then the second girl working the desk told us the company removed them. The staff could not even be bothered to show us to the truck. The truck looked like it had been sitting for a while. The staff didn't compleat a pre trip or even a wipe down of the truck. After we got under way after having our time wasted waiting for the staff to do there pre trip that was never completed we found the cab of the truck was full of ants in the cab and in the back of the truck. My two sons and I spent a portion of the trip having ants falling on us and getting bit. We had to stop at a friend's to get a leaf blower to Clear out the truck from the ants. The cab had a funny smell to it and we had to find a spot to put the cardbord window rent me sign. And the coffee spils and sticky stuff in the cup holder. We told the girl about the mechanical problems and she seemed to not even care. Every time we hit the brakes it had a hard pull to the left and the transmission had a hard clunk. I have used uhaul several times before but this will be the last time I use this store what a joke.Jason U.

Your equipment needs to get fixed for the 2 months that I was there the bays door are out of service when I specifically got my unit close to them as I have a bad leg !! Used it to move my stuff in and when I have to come back a few time it wasn’t working and not working the day I left !!! There is a very bad odor when you go into the hallway from entrance almost like a dead rodent smell as it’s a smell one doesn’t forget!! I had issues with my swipe card when I register for a second unit when I was paying the mover by the hour I had to walk back in forth instead of uhal workers doing their job !!! Only when I got mad and said I can’t keep walking back in forth with my bad leg a uhal worker came out and than finally did something about it !!! So for a half hour I had to deal with that issue !! I was not impressed at all with my experience with uhal !!! You would 1 star for the young lady manger that’s it !!debra b. | Overall Experience

I increased the rating to average because of the excellent service I received from the girl at the service desk. She took great care of me and was empathetic to my experience. She is a good natured person trying her best to make people happy, you can tell that’s just her personality. She gets more than 5 stars! If not for her this would be a poor rating. The email package I received for the access was insufficient. The storage area is huge, and a maze. If you have never been there before you are lost! No appropriate map or location of my storage unit was available. The online link to the map sucks. It opens half the time and when it does it’s impossible to navigate on a mobile device.William S. | Online Move In

The Uhaul storage facility was fine and convenient. The problem is the one of the two sisters you have working at front desk. The fat girl is manipulative and dishonest. She is not the right person for that job. I can see she's just pretending to like people to get the day done with for a paycheck. She is a liar and I would not recommend uhaul just because of her. I dont know her name and I don't care to. If i had to use uhaul services as a last option i would let someoneelse do it for me. Just so I dont have to see her lying and conniving face!!! Thankyou to everyone else!! You've been a great help!!Jemie F. | Overall Experience
Very disappointed with the information when booking our storage unit and truck. Rep 1st neglected to book the truck. I had to call and speaj w/different locations, who eventually accommodated me. 2nd, when picking up the truck and confirming storage unit. same rep went over quickly the directions to the storage until upon return. Didn't give me the step by step sheet for after hours. 3rd at time of dropping of storage contents couldn't get into storage facility. Called the after hours # and the rep said we had to wait until the location was open the next day, instead of giving me instructions to get into the storage facility, wasting our time, driving the truck home, which cost more. The next day location wouldn't cover the cost of the extra mileage and in process of disputing extra monies paid. I would not recommend this location and the rep who initially serviced us needs better communications skills/trainingNancy K. | First Impressions

Day one I asked for the manager to contact me, and waited 22 days for them. Finally moved out and got a storage unit with the competition. The first 10 days of my rental, my unit couldn't be secured properly due to poor unit upkeep.

During my initial sign in of my storage unit, I asked about my lock for the unit. The counter agent advised that I did not have a lock. I was confused because I was under the impression that my unit came with a lock. So, I purchased a lock but when I opened my unit, a lock was in the unit! I went back to the counter, and the agent says "Oh sorry, it's not on your invoice so that's your lock now!" She would not refund me for the lock. Uhual, if a lock is included in the unit, it should be indicated on the invoice, whether it is free or paid for. When I went to return the truck rental on Welland Ave, the Gentleman there called to straighten it out, yet he advised for me to go back to Vine St because it is part of their inventory. He says "Well, you need to go return the lock to Vine Street, even if it's complimentary because you purchased a new lock". Why would I return a lock that came with my unit? Just to give it back to Uhaul for them to sell? Completely unorganized and I should have been refunded for the cost of the lock.Janey L. | First Impressions
