Make sure that your equipment is in top shape. I most likely used more fuel than I should have because the RPM's kept jumping from 2700 rpms to 3500/4200 rpms when I was going at a constant speed & if I had to accelerate it took a lot effort for the truck to move. I only had maybe 800# in the truck . It was a bad experience for my wife and I. I have rented a lot of trucks from U- Haul and never had a problem like I did with this truck. It had 88000 + miles on it and I think that it was on its last legs and that we got stuck with it.JERALD N.

Crystal Lake UHaul is phenomenal! Paul and his staff have taken good care of me for 18 years. I’m in Sales and frequently receive packages. They were put away quickly and with care. I’m only leaving as my company will no longer pay for storage. Ten stars!!TAMMY S. | Overall Experience

It was a painless experience... I thought I was getting a lot of contact that was unnecessary ( but in all reality it was best too know more than less.. And being that I rented before it was great that my information was in the nation wide data base... So lost of correspondence is probably why all went great without a hitch ( no Pun intended)Dan J.

Picking up the truck was quick and efficient. We had no mechanical failures while driving the 500+ miles. BUT some of the tires on the truck needed to be replaced, very little tread (again we had no issues). I don't know what suspension these trucks have but it rode like it had none. Every single bump was felt and small pot holes felt like I had driven off a curve, BAMM! The ride was jarring, definitely does not "drive like a van".RICHARD J.
I cannot believe I arrived at 6:59 and the guy literally saw me pull in and closed the door as I was getting off my truckJuan P.
Professional and great service - highly recommend these folks!Michael W.

Print the contract for review and inspect truck with us.Scott H.
I was NEVER emailed my receipt or issued a refund for the mileage I didn't use. Im also flabbergasted at the way the gas "digital" system is used. According to the return guy the truck went out at 13/16 tank we returned it at 12/16. When we pucked up and looked at the gauge(from a human eye stand point it showed 3/4 tank. We returned it with 3/4(12/16) of a tank. The return guy wanted to charge us 9.99 fir the discrepancy. I guess math isn't a strong point required for the job.Cynthia C.
Truck smelled like smoke..and not just a little bit, it smelled like 3 men sat in the cab for a week chain smoking one after another on a stake out or something.. windshield was also dirty.. Not normal for this location so probably just a one off..Daniel W.
Staff here is always courteous a d professional. They never fail to be top notch. The staff at Crystal Lake IL UHaul are amazing always answer questions are always clear about things and literally look excited that they get to help :) and when I return the trailer they actually talk with me like we are friends it's welcoming especially after a hard working weekend if DJing. Thank you!Juan P.
Staff was very helpful and quick both at pickup and return.JOHN C.
Spare tire for trailer should be available.ZBIGNIEW Z.
The link with the conditiin of the unit with pictures, should not expire after you approve/agree with condition. I should also be allowed to upload my own concerns and pictures.Timothy B.
Reserved 4x7 trailer actually measured about 36 inch wide Not 48 The 4x7 label on the trailer should reflect the actual measurement of the trailer, actual measurements should also be reflected on line. Luckily they had a wider one with $4 more Had to provide a second phone #, first time facing such a must requirement. No one should be dealing with last minutes surprises as I did. Extremely unhappy.

The location itself was great. However, I believed the website when it told me to use the app for quick check in. 20+ minutes is not fast. We were in the parking lot uploading phots at a rate so slow that my phone kept timing out. I don't think the delay was on our end - I had bars and 5G. I think your coding is bad. Also, I had gone through the online pre check in at home the night before. Why couldn't I have uploaded the photos of the driver and his license then? Fix your app.Brian S.

Trailer has mud in it, which they did clean after I pointed it out. Transporting a custom bike on this trailer and didn't want to take any chances with dirt, etc. Other than that, all was good! ðŸ‘MICHAEL R.
Went to rent a car dolly, they had many newer ones but insisted on trying to give an older on which shorted my connector and popped a fuse. My adaptor was lit before. So I had to drive down the road to get fuses for my truck. It took over an hour for me to rent this. FYI my truck is a 2017 and I pull a travel trailer regularly. It wasn't my connector. I feel he was inexperienced. I towed a car 600 miles and asked if it was okay to pull an empty dolly all the way back, they said sure. No problem. I would NEVER give that advice to someone. The thing bounced all over the place and I kept my speed down so it took forever to get back. I was angry to say the least. If there was another option for me to rent somewhere else I defineately would have. Your company is better than this. Train your employees better and we'll all be happier.carl K.

I should not have had to drive back and forth 4 times to bring all my containers. Uhaul should have had two on each trailer ready to go or someone capable of using a forklift to rotate them on the trailer. Horrible that they just couldn't figure this out.MICHAEL Z.

I was pleased with the work that U-Haul in Crystal Lake did it looks clean, the wiring I wish would have been by the hitch and not inside otherwise I do like itJean W.
The location was great. The online check in is ridiculous. After standing in the rain to complete way too many steps online I'm told to go inside to get the key. The online service is a complete waste of timeRichard E.

My only negative comment would be navigating the website for the reservation. Sometimes the confirmation boxes would be clearly marked on the bottom of the page and other times it would be shifted to the top. Aside from that my entire experience was excellent. Everyone was professional and friendly, the equipment worked exactly as advertised, and the return was simple by just following the posted signs. Keep up the great work and you have definitely earned a repeat customer.JONATHAN S.
The location is great. The trailer for this rental was terrible!! You should take it in the road to trouble shoot it. Something is wrong with it.JOSEPH S.

I have used this location many times and am never disappointed. Highly recommend them to anyone who asks.MARGARET B.
A little confusing on the return, followed signs parked under a tent but was told to go somewhere else, then asked to pull into a tight space. Not the best at pulling trailers or backing them up, although the personnel was ok with me not getting the trailer in the parking space.RANDY H.

Everything was great - the only thing that would have been nice would have been access to load / unload from another side of the facility. Had a long walk to get to our storage unit.Joseph C. | Overall Experience
Helpful employees and a well maintained facility with convenient access to the storage units. Price is comparable with other storage companies.Nick T. | First Impressions
The dock is all the way on the opposite side of where my storage locker is. It would have been nice if there was access to that side of the building. A full 26' truck with 2 or 3 people takes hours to unload and walk back and forth. Plus it takes up 1 of only 2 spaces on the dock which denies others from its use. Otherwise a very nice setup.Gregory S. | First Impressions

Well run facility in Crystal Lake. Our truck rental could have been better but not due to service. The truck was not in good condition, could only go 30 mph when loaded and hot (it was 90F), and would pop out of gear. But again, the service was great and consistent.Robert G. | Online Move In
