Very great staff!! Thorough and was fun to talk to.Tadra W.
Add security to this location. There is UHaul bandit in the area. I was told that everyother night he steals parts off the the UHaul equipment thus compromising the customer's experience. I loss about a hour off life precious time getting my reservation processed because the bandit had disabled all the equiptment. I couldn't fulfill my timely agreement with helping my company VIP. Nice, friendly customer service counter. I welcome any type customer appreciation gift you offer tocustometrs with horrible experieces. My experience with UHaul costed me $400.... I can be reached at 205 249 8242 or 2005 Northland Ave SW, Bhm, Ala 35211. Regards, Kent PorterfieldKent P.

My experience was awesome at this location. The service technician was very helpful and understanding and went out of her way to assist me in every way. She did everything with a smile and made me feel at ease. Thank you Ms. S. Cunningham.judith M.
Gentlemen on evening shift and General Manager Definitely keeps my business. Only location I preferAlan C.
The cargo van was awful. It was nasty and had old food utensils in the back that looked like it had been there for days. There was broken glass in the back, it smelled like smokeâ€¦and the most awful part is that someone tied a used condom to the windshield wiper blade and human Feces was on the front window. The most horrible experience renting from U-haul I told the staff and they didn't seem to care and didn't seem surprised!!!Sparkle M.
Gas tank was not full and still wanted me to bring van back on full tank. Charged me when it wasn't. Car had oder.Karimatou D.
Staff was friendly and courteous. Quick and easy to drop off equipment.William J.
My reservation site was changed last minute so I ended up going to the one I did the reservation for and not this new address. I would like for uhaul to try to alert that the reservation location has indeed changed as I was going on old info when I did my driving google maps only to when in app be told I was at the incorrect address.ELAINA H.
Very clean truck full of gas and drove smoothly. Great experience.Glynda B.
The truck was seriously out of line which made it hard to drive. Everything else was good!Anna V.
Excellent customer service, but the trailer needed to be cleaned out. The previous customer had left debris in it that I had to clean out before using. Equipment did exactly what it needed to for the trip from Alabama to Texas.ANDREW A.

Truck had items left by previous renter. I called to let the office know that t we as running a few minutes behind on my return time of 4:30. They told me someone was waiting for the size truck I had because they had a 4:00 pick up time. Why reserve them for 4:00 if I wasn't returning until 4:30? I arrived @ 5:01 pm Was charged $50 late fee and an additional $39.95 days rental fee.Danette H.

Just want to say the staff at this location was wonderful!! Very friendly and caring!Jennifer M.
The representative was not thorough. I gave the representative my reservation number while telling them I was renting a truck. They insisted that I need a major credit card to rent the truck. I already already confirmed with the representative on the phone prior that I was able to simply use my debit card, especially since I used a debit card to save my reservation. All of this was explained to the representative at this location. We went back and forth for about 10 minutes until they actually looked at my reservation and indeed I didn't need a credit card. This caused confusion because It made my family member have to get off work early to give me my card that in fact, I did not even need. Overall, they were pleasant to communicate with but they need to do a better job at listening to the customer and using their tools and resources.Keona M.
The employee who handled my pick up was great. They worked with me to save me an additional stop.John A.

FRAUD & CRIMINAL ACTIVITY ALERT 3028 Bessemer RD Birmingham Alabama 35208 205-785-1524 URGENT- ACTION PENDING AGAINST UHAUL CORP. A Manager and Supervisorn located at 3028 Bessemer Rd Birmingham Alabama 35208 ( 205-785-1524) allowed a rental truck to be rented in my name for my ex-husband on this past Friday. I live all the way in Texas and somehow she allowed this without my identification, signature, or permission. She committed FRAUD and she also stated that her BOSS knew about and allowed a truck to be rented without my knowledge, signature, identification, or permission. WE ARE DIVORCED. UHAUL have violated my rights. I am calling for the immediate TERMINATION of all involved including the supervisor who knew and allowed it. A complete investigation is needed and media contact to further investigate criminal fradulent actions at that UHAUL LOCATION. The rep stated to me when I called about it after receiving SEVERAL emails about a rental in Birmingham on Bessemer Rd while I was at work in Texas. Your UHAUL employee he gave (rented him the truck under my CELL PHONE NUMBER!!!! AND NAME!!!!WHAT??? Are you kidding me???? Fire them and compensate me for my time spent off work to investigate this ridiculous CRIMINAL act of FRAUD. Dr. Delorise Webber (jenkins) 214-458-0901Delorise J.

No one was in a hurry for anything No clear process for picking up truck When dropping off, waited in drop off for 15 minutes. When they did show up Guy grunted something about key. Did the checkout , then pointed at office twice and i finally got out of him thats where you got receipt. You could tell customers were the worst part of their daysteven N.
This location was our first choice for a trailer pickup in Birmingham but they didn't have any in stock.Marquitta H.
1. Allow your customers who have been there longer than 6 months to use your private dumpster. It's selfish not to allow it. 2. Help customers toss mattresses, especially if they have been there longer than 6 months. Set up a system to help hall away items for customers who have paid for long stays. 3. If a customer has patronized your business for a considerable amount of time be willing to bend a few rules. Make it fair and willing to help assist the customer. Be willing to bend stiff rules. Then your customers will always return to a family like business.Terria W. | Overall Experience

Truck was not clean or ready. Was not the location I booked.Michael H.
I arrived at the store today to get a truck. I called to extend the time but couldn't reach anyone. I also tried sending a message and no response. I ordered moving help to arrive at 7am and they never showed up. I'm pregnant and recovering from a car accident. I continued to call the company and could not speak to a person I had to text. I had to call corporate, moving help and staff multiple times. But they demanded their truck back and threatened to call the police. I told them I'm helpless and need help but I can't unload the truck myself on time. I was given a truck with marijuana in it and the truck was on empty and I had to fill it up. Now I'm charged a fine and charged for the moving men who never showedLanetta H.

The young lady that took care of me at customer service desk did an outstanding job.Deyiia H.
Bad customer service-employees were not positive, said something about not wanting to be there and were in general very grumpy. When I realized I was going to be late picking up van, I called and was told my van would still be available. I got there at the set time and no van or any other options. Trailer was only option. Had to go buy a hitch. Returned to get trailer and first trailer was rusty and couldn't be used. Four hours later we pulled out with a trailer. HORRIBLE experience and will NEVER USE UHAUL AGAIN!Jennifer M.
More employees to serve customers.Mary M.

There was one thin young lady and one heavier set young men, and 2 or 3 other thin young men working at this location who were very helpful and went out of their way to find a truck for me after a previous renter was 2+ hours late returning a truck. They were all very empathetic and professional and were outstanding examples of the type of employees that should make Uhaul proud. Thanks to all of the staff on duty at this location on 7-23-22.Larry J.

Everything was great!! My only personal problem/complaint were that my legs are too short & I couldn't figure out how to adjust the seat.. may have already been up as close as it comes.. Great customer svcs throughout the whole process.. ! Rented a nice clean good running cargo van with air conditioning!! Hallelujah!! Overall I was greatly pleased and impressed with the staff (pleasant attitudes) & will be using U-haul again soon!!Annette C.
The customer service is horrible, i repeat horrible! They store is dirty, the employees appear to act as if they're at an hangout spot. The lady who's an manager she's rude and and lacks customer service skills. The store definitely needs a face lift and re evaluated, overall not an good experience and I do not recommend.LYNISSA N.
The truck had a leak in the roof and it stormed while I was moving. Many boxes were damaged and fell apart. The truck should not have been available for rent. Not a good experience.Bernard B.

I filled the gas tank up lto full as in the past the tank should return full. Well I spent a whopping $85 oo on gas that I couldn't afforddeliska W.
Have agents know the product. I asked for TV boxes for a 85 in TV and a 60 in TV .. what they gave me and insisted that was.. not correct .. so I'm stuck with 20.00 worth of boxes I can't useAUDREY G.
Perhaps add more training to associates so they may be able to locate pre-purchased moving supplies inventory/list. In my case, I did not use any supplies because my pre-payment/order could not be found by associate. My account was promptly refunded by customer service.ALBERT V.

IF I DID NOT DO QUICK THINKING AND GOT AN AVAILABLE HITCH, I WOULD STILL BE WAITING, WHEN I GOT THEIR SUNDAY MORNING, THERE SAT THE TRUCK I NEEDED.

Uhaul corporate needs to do a better job in communication. My pick up location changed and they sent me 31 miles to Tallasee for my drop off when I asked for Alex City. I always feel like I am at Uhaul's mercy. Fortunately, there were 2 happy and efficient workers that made the experience very pleasant at both locations. That is the 1st time I have experienced happy workers and they should be recognized! They exceeded my expectations, not necessarily Uhaul.Gregory N.

I rented the unit on behalf of my Nephew who lost his mother to a heart attack in July and his Stepfather in August. He lives in Florida and needed someplace to store househhold items. I am extremely disappointed that I could not get a refund of the unused portion of my rental payment. The ending date for my initial rental was 24 September. Prior to that date, I made a payment. My nephew and I cleared the unit out on 27 September, just 3 days later. I believe that I should only be charged for the 2 or 3 days from the 24th. and rest should be refunded to me. Thank you for your consideration. Mattie D. HarperMattie H. | Overall Experience

The storage facility itself was excellent. I used the unit for several years and found no problems with my stored items. The problems that I had was with the parking. On Saturday, September 12, 2020, I parked my vehicle in a parking space painted for parking. When I parked, I felt a pull on my right bumper. When I looked, a nail protruding from the cement barrier had ripped off the right side of my bumper. I informed the manager, Shinita Cunningham. She said that the parking spots were for hitches, but there were no signs saying the parking spots were for the hitches. I now have a damaged bumper and I am not pleased about it because it could have been avoided. There are no customer parking spaces for storage customers. That problem needs to be addressed. On Sunday, September 13, 2020, the normal staff was off. The gentleman filling in could not open the storage area because he did not have the keys or codes. Me and my family waited for 1 1/2 hrs but were still unable to get into the storage area. I thought it was ridiculous that he did not have the correct information necessary to continue normal operations. It was very frustrating and I had to reschedule meeting dates with my family to complete emptying the storage unit. Communication is of the utmost importance to keep a business functional and your customers stress and worry free.MATTIE M. | Overall Experience

This was absolutely the worst experience I have ever had moving with Uhaul. I just have spoke with 12 individuals from 800 Uhaul online, Ethics department, store managers, clerks, and maybe 2 individuals were pleasant and willing to assist my family and I. Hey ur storage reservation was secured wrong by representative, the services that were supposed to be available were not available putting the safety of my family at risk. The size of the storage that I reserved and was forced to down grade to a unit that almost didn’t fit the capacity of my goods. We were threatened by the staff. Worst experience ever.Traci R. | First Impressions
