We waited for almost an hour to get the truck (the only gentlemen there was very friendly and apologetic but it did mess with our schedule.) Then after we got loaded at the first stop, my husband closed the door and locked the padlock that was chained to the truck. When we went to open the door to unload my husband realized he did not have a key for the padlock. We attempted to call the location but they were not answering the phones. The call went to a central representative who said she would message the location and they would get back with us. 3 hours later still no response and the truck was due back. I called again and this time we were transferred to the road side service people. They found a locksmith who would come out after hours on a Sunday and he showed up at 9:30 pm and cut the lock off. We had the truck unloaded at 10:30 pm and then had to return it. Due to all of this we did not get to our second location to load it and bring it home and now will have to rent a truck again!

Truck was not available at date and time and location requested even though the reservation was made a month in advance. Staff offered to cancel our reservation instead of trying to take care of what we reserved. Upon arrival at a location an hour away from requested location, staff handed us the keys and told us to go find the truck and drive it over to the trailer area to get the trailer. The truck had a serious issue with exhaust, it sounded like it had no muffler at all. We identified that the tag light was not working and it 45 minutes for staff to come out and install a new bulb. There was no effort from staff to provide any information nor instruction about the use/operation of the equipment. It took almost 2 hours from walking up to the counter until we were able to leave. The staff at this location were rude, non caring and do not have the customer nor the reputation of the company they work for in mind. If we had not been on a tight time line, i would have taken my business elsewhere!

Truck was in bad mechanical order. Alignment was off so steering wheel was very cocked and had hard pull. Check engine light was one and ac would randomly stop working. The truck shook so hard on the highway I had to pull over because it made my back and stomach hurt. Gas mileage was still okay and truck was cleaned very well in cab and bed.

They gave me the truck with an empty tank, the car dolly strap was ripped, and she told me that if I talked to the u-haul storage facility in Colorado they would let me return our stuff there. That was not true. I feel like she just told me what I wanted to hear so I would leave her alone.

I don't feel this truck was safe to be on the roads. You could turn the steering three inches both directions before the truck would actually turn. VERY unsafe and highly disappointed I paid money to use that. I didn't even want to drive it.

That Chinese looking girl with her smart mouth needs to be fired! She was rude. She wouldn't let her coworker do his job without interference. She was too worried about my license. He had everything he needed but she persisted interference. I repeatedly told her to let him do his job. She still kept running her mouth. I told her to shut her damn mouth and let the guy do his job. She was very disrespectful and I will never do business here again. I am a local contractor with many clients in and around Lima. So if She has a job still. I will tell my people to use budget

The truck I rented was clean. However the driver side mirror was bent and unadjustable. When I asked about it I was told that it was the only one available for my move. I had no choice but to use it. I had to buy parts and repair the mirror myself.

We rented a car trailer. One of the straps was broken and unusable. When I asked about it upon return the guy didn't seem to worried about it. These straps are used to secure the car onto the trailer……. I believe I should have at least gotten a discount for have to worry about the car not being secure enough in the trailer.

The back door on the truck would not close all the way after it was opened. It was like the cables came off track. These should be inspected more often. Luckily we didn't have far to go and had not issues with stuff falling out.

Reserved the trailer online. Arrived to pick it up and the lights did not work. Had to wait for the staff to replace the connecting end of the wiring in order to take the trailer. The staff was outstanding but I was on a time crunch and ended up delayed due to needing the 6x12 trailer. The location had no other units that size for me to take so I had no choice but to wait.

Made a mistake and left my tools in the truck. Returned back to the office in 5 minutes. Tools were thrown in dumpster and drill was missing. Employee could have just given my tool belt to front office. They savaged thru my tools, stole what they wanted and threw the others away. Not goos customer service. You have thieves working for you.

The customer service and everything else was immaculate but the storage size was not up to par. Their largest size storage was the size of a medium sized closet with low entrance and will not hold or fit large items such as couches, mattresses, and box springs. For smaller storage such as totes and boxes this would be perfect but that was not what I was looking for.

Was not well lit. Had to vigorously wave arms to get light to come on and it still didn't go on till we were walking out. Storage unit was very dark at all times. Large pipe running through the middle of it that I hit my head on several times, must be a known issue due to it being wrapped in foam which helped but still made moving anything very difficult. Late fees are outrageous, in one month its the same as the rent for the unit making it nearly impossible to catch up and not lose your belongings.

Thank you all Patrick, Beverly, & Justin for what you all did for me! I would recommend U~Haul to friends & family alike! I appreciate all that you all have done for me! The reason I didn’t think the ACCESS HOURS were good for me was because I was not aware of the extra $5 to pay to be able to gain entry anytime. I had to wait for your store hours to open before I could gain access to the storage so that was a bit of a problem for me, but other than that, you all were great! May GOD continue to Bless you all! Thank you & HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
