Pickup was fast and the staff was nice but I was given a truck with no gas in it. They told me it was low but I drove less than a mile when the gas light/alarm went off. Having to immediately stop for gas, during lunch hour on a busy road, in the middle of a rain storm was stressful and caused me to be late for an appointment I had scheduled. Once I had gas in the truck everything was as expected. The truck ran fine and I was given a $40 gas credit upon drop off. When I dropped off the truck, the employee who checked it in was apologetic that I was given that truck and said he didn't want it to leave the lot with the gas so low. Besides the initial inconvenience, my rental experience was good.

My truck had a trailer hitch light on even though I didn't have one and no matter how hard I slammed the drivers side door closed it said it was open.

I've never worked with a company that didn't have a window of 5 days before charging a late fee. It is insane that 2 weeks after a payment is due I get a threat that my stuff will be given away or trashed if I don't. I think this customer service plan needs to be revised

Create and initiate a payment system where a customer may split payment either between cash and credit car or between two credit cards when wishing to pay. Unfortunately we were not told that when making our arrangements so we had to delay our plans for a day, however the customer service representatives that assisted us we professional and courteous. We will use uhaul again in the future should the need arise.

At a DOT check when the license plate was not legible. The officer ran the plate 2 times guessing what the first letter / number was. Hour and a half later I was released. Could not open the tube containing the Registration.

Great service. We were in and out very quickly. The service tech knew we lived over an hour away from the shop so he actually stopped work on a vehicle that someone had left for the day and did ours in about 25 minutes. He also took us into the shop and showed us exactly what he was going to do. Great job!

Only had the vehicle for a short period of time but I had to clean the inside and outside windshield and sweep the bed of the pick up which was not a problem. The vehicle was excellent for what I rented it for and the pick up location was excellent for me. If need be I would rent from this location again.

These trucks need to be retired. The truck sounded like it would break down at any point, very loud and dirty. I only did an in-town move so it wasn't a big deal, but if this was a long move, it would be difficult.

There was a problem with the transmission in my Cargo Van. It was a “new” vehicle (only 90miles) but it stalled repeatedly on the freeway. When I contacted UHaul about ways to safely “return” the vehicle— I was directed to roadside assistance (which I did not need). I was then charged full price for the rental of a faulty/dangerous vehicle AND $500 for a tow I didn't request. This is unacceptable. UHual gave me a vehicle that was dangerous to drive— and rather than apologize or provide refund I was instead over charged. (My ratings are for this overall experience with UHaul— not the individual operators I spoke with who were all trying to be as helpful as possible).

The truck had over 100,000 miles on it and it showed. While the engine and AC were fine, drivers door had an issue with closing (required slamming), Visor clips were loose, allowing visors to drop down, seats were torn or coming apart.

If I were to recommend, it would be to make reservations in person as opposed to online. The access code given to me online was invalid. Fortunately office was open. They told me that online access codes are almost always incorrect and need to be revised on site. That's unacceptable, hence the below average rating.
