Awesome place to rent equipment from!RYAN MICHAEL A.
Great service and value!JAMES E.
My reservation was for SE Boise. The night before I was told I needed to drive to the other side of town to pick up the truck at a different location. What's the point in choosing a location when you make the reservation?RANDALL T.

Nothing it all was handled great. Even when I had it back late. If any saying was to need improvement I would say it would be the phone system because when I called it would tell me to select about my current reservation and I would press that and then it would go silent and I would never reach a live person I stayed on a silent phone for about 20 minutes almost because I thought it was maybe just ringing but a silent ringing I guess. So the phone was the only thing that made it diffucultJessica H.
None Treatment was very nice. U- haul rep. Called and asked if I could drop rental at another location for $25 discount. And was very polite when I offered to a better location that was on my route back. Very nice experienceDANIAL D.

As always, Boise Uhaul locations are spectacular. Throughout the Denver Metro area, we had run-ins with Uhaul locations that reeked of smoke, didn't have working telephone lines for communication, had rude service, etc. Boise Uhaul sites are always clean and professional, so thank you.Anthony G.

Of course when I showed up they wanted to know where appliance and utility dolly were since they were on my contract. Of course Reno said this would not happen but it did. I explained the issue and staff here quickly handled the issueDarren Y.

Follow Covid ethics & wear masks. Treat PAYING CUSTOMERS as valued. Smile. Don,t put them in a higher priced truck when we state I want to reserve that rig for Fri. Locking gas caps. I went less than 75 minutes & put $40 in gas tank even @ $3gal. that was suspicious.Penny G.
Great experience. My wife rented the trailer and was very impressed with the whole rental.Angela M.
Between myself, my family, and my friends we have rent literally hundreds of UHauls. This was by far the WORST UHaul experience I have had. Do not go to this location.David M.

Trailer had frozen mud stuck to bottom of trailer. Two employees and I had to chip the mud out before I could use.DOUGLAS S.
Speed up the computer. The U-Haul site was very slow.Lynne G.
Everyone did just super job of taking care of us. We had bought the wrong ball hitch somewhere else. U-Haul folks stepped up, had exactly what we needed, and took care of everything. Seamless, smooth, Pleasant experience. And they were the nicest people. Everyone. Thank you. 10 stars.Joseph B.

The employee was not wearing a mask. Also had a horrible experience with the app for mobile pickup. I had to take a picture of the backside of my drivers license about 20 times before it finally accepted it. And once I got through that it took another several tries to click the final submit button to be able to get my keys. And in the end I had to go in and talk to the employee to get my keys in person anyway.Jessica F.
The straps used to ratchet down the tires... one was a little worn and barely made it over the tire. The other strap was fine. One strap should probably be replaced from wear.CHAD C.

Better understanding of the lowest rate guarantee. The rep who helped me book this didn't explain it well and I needed to call customer service to make sure it was applied. Otherwise a good experience and quick helpful pick up and drop off.Randall K.

Make sure your website has the correct information for trailers. Website said a certain ball was fine, but store employee said something completely different. And employee was pretty rude when we said this issue.Francis G.

Great customer service!Robert O.
I made the reservation online and I had intended to pay in cash. Nowhere online did is say I had to have a credit card to ok for $100 to pick up the van. When I went to pick it up they told me I needed to have a card to ok $100 on. I only have debit and only had $60 in there and the $ for the van in cash in my pocket. My ride to get the van had just dropped me off and left so I had no way to get to the bank to deposit $ for the card to clear. I had dialysis to get to and was out of time. If that had been mentioned online I wouldn't have been put in that situation and wouldn't have been late to dialysis. Other than that the folks at the U-HAUL store were great, as usual. I have sent several people there for their one day in town van rentals. They help so much and the price is very reasonable.RACHEL P.
What a fantastic group of people! Prompt and courteous! Went above and beyond! They all deserve a serious raise!Charity S.

My overall experience was horrible. The bright spot were the guys and their customer service at the Chinden location. The online check in was clunky and made my rental frustrating and delayed. The online reservation was pointless because I was contacted and told that even though I had a reservation you couldn't guarantee me a truck, then left me hanging until the last minute, and I had to go to a different location to pick up the truck which cost me an additional 40 miles. I will avoid using u-haul in the future.GREG M.
Both my pickup location and drop off location were changed last minute by Uhaul. I had to go 15 miles out of my way to pickup the Uhaul from a different location from my initial reservation. They said they ended up not having my truck I need to go elsewhere last minute. And same problem with drop off I was called and told my original drop off is full to go somewhere else.BRANDON HOWARD S.

There is a gal that works there that has an attitude. Such a smart ass. All the guys that I have had to deal with including the yard are so very nice. HOPE she disappears soon.Linda F.
The lady that helped me was just rude. Wasn't friendly, wasn't helpful. The guy in the building acted like I was annoying him by dropping off the trailer. I will never rent a uhaul or take back to this site. I have used this site before and they were unfriendly and unorganized, I figured it was an â€œoffâ€ day. It was not a pleasant experience, dropping off the trailer. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this site.Mischa S.

Three times I had guarantees from staff of U-Haul that my initial card would not be charged for the extra miles and time, instead I was reassured three times by three different employees that I could substitute a payment at the counter during checkout. This was VITAL to the operation of my personal business and my overall moving budget. This was a very expensive move, all out of pocket. Every dollar was budgeted and intentional. The initial rental cost $1800 which I had intentionally set aside in my regular "bill-pay" checking account. The finances of this account are very intentional. There were unplanned additional miles and days. We encountered snow and ice in Wyoming including the major interstate being shut down. The original mileage estimate was also incorrect, which I discussed on the first day with a representative from the 800 number who assured me that I could settle the difference in person and avoid having extra charges applied to this particular account. The amount of the charges has never been contested. It is the payment method which, again, I repeated stated to every representative of U-Haul during this process. During the highway closure, knowing that I was again incurring more fees, I was again assured by an 800 number representative that I could settle at the counter and avoid paying fees on this account. I was traveling cross-country while running my business at night in hotel rooms. There was no way to add money to that account while I traveled. I had intentionally begun the trip with the correct amount to cover my normal and projected expenses. When finally I arrived and checked in the vehicle with the outdoor check-in attendee, I was told that I would be able to pay most of it indoors by cash, and that the charges would be "held" so that it could be sorted out. At the counter, there was only one representative, the manager Tim. I expressed my concerns with him. I had a fistful of money to give him. He dismissed it. He told me very specifically that I would not be charged for the extra amounts. The dollar amount was completely different than the estimates I had heard over the phone or from the outdoor check-in guy. This was unexpected, and now I know that it was a miscommunication due to having two separate contracts for each of the truck and trailer. I explained that I was already paying $1,800 for the rental and that was part of the budget of that account, and the $600 or so additional for the trailer was also part of that account. I know about $350 in added charges, but was never informed that I had $750 extra for the truck and also $150 extra for the trailer which were unplanned, unexpected charges. The account in question is a regular monthly bill-pay account. I specifically and clearly discussed with multiple employees of U-Haul that I COULD NOT have another charge on this particular account. I had an envelope of cash. I had a card which could access an untapped recent paycheck. Every employee assured me that I could choose the method of payment at the counter. Tim the manager told me when he heard my concerns that "I will not let that happen." Yesterday I awoke to the extra $750 deduction in my bill-pay account. There is no way to EFT money over fast enough to cover that amount. U-Haul Moving & Storage of Garden City lied to me, and it is now costing me personally to the tune of several soon-to-be unpaid bills, and who knows how many $30 overdraft charges. The cost of doing business with U-Haul is too high. The rental itself in total ended up being about $3,025.48 before fuel expenses, and now I'm looking at another $200 to $300 dollars in fines and fees due to the negligence and dishonesty of the representatives. Yesterday I attempted to reach this delivery location multiple times during the day. I am using other people's phones since my was damaged during the move. They do not answer the phone at this location, it only goes straight to the 800-number. The 800-number tells me that I need to talk to the location, the location doesn't answer the phone and sends me to the 800-number. Repeat. I have asked for return contact by email and been left wondering. It's a clean system for dismissal. Last night I spoke to three separate 800-number representatives and received three separate answers on what to do. Unfortunately I do not have "two to three business days" to wait, guys. Yesterday was the day. Now I'm going to have to invoice U-Haul Moving & Storage of Garden City for the extra costs they chose to incur. I had multiple representatives with very clear communication telling me a story, and then after the charges were made that story changed to "just wait." I will never use U-Haul for any service again. Now I will have no choice but to register contested charges with my financial provider, which is the truth. At every single point of contact I discussed this with U-Haul employees. Every one of them lied to me openly and I will not pay the cost of those misunderstandings and misdirections.James M.
If the drop off location isn't available let people know before they rent. I was informed when I was at the drop off location which was already 30 minutes away that I had to take it to another place that is 2 hours from my place. The told me I would receive a 50 dollar rebate which I still have not received. 50 dollars barely covers my gas no to mention loosing 2 days. Not happy at all.Jon C.

Moving to Idaho I've had to use this particular store a lot. Every time I'm there the staff are always courteous and very professional. I'm very pleased with this store.ERIC B.
The price was pretty good. It isn't as nice as a lot of the chain storage places, but it's less expensive. It's also much older than most of the new, fancy storage places. My main recommendation would be to have a light in the unit.Robert W. | Online Move In

While speaking to more then 3 people I kept getting different information on my Uboxs. First 2 did not know how to look up when my payment was coming out. The third person told me that I didn't have to pay for it till I went and picked it up. 2 days later I was charged a week earlier then the u-boxes were supposed to arrive which ended in overdrafting my account. When I called to see if they could revirse I was transferred 3 times. Where no one could help. By the end they transferred me to the first person I talked to. All and all being told we can't help you.Tara O. | Overall Experience

The unit was an old pull trailer which was fine for the things I have to store. However, it leaked on more than one spot. The clicker that I was given didn't work so I got stuck inside the gate. I feel that it is the employees job to ensure that the clicker is working before sending to customer out to figure it out on their own.Heather R. | Overall Experience
