This is not Tracy Bonner but I keep getting his/her emails in error. I am in disbelief that it is so complicated to have the email changed. I have attempted several times to have this issue resolved. I call and get transferred several times. It is not my responsibility to follow up. Tracy and uhaul have been notified. Please contact Tracy and fix the problem.Tracy B. | Overall Experience
The end where my storage was the light doesn't work so it is very dark on that end.VONCELLA R. | Overall Experience
When renting U-Haul storage unit from Rockledge FL facility in November, there was a half hour wait in line and the staff was not friendly and it felt that you were an imposition to their day. It made for an uncomfortable atmosphere for all the customers. When returning there to purchase more boxes, paper and tape it was a long wait as the first time, though there was only me and one other person and the unfriendly staff were still unfriendly!Pamela D. | First Impressions
Not a good experience. Phone app would not work at pick up and drop off. No one at this facility to assist. Got over charged by $30 but was refunded after contacting U-Haul.. Will rent from this location again.Diane R.
Have a form in the vehicle and drop box for any report of damage in case the link doesn't arrive on customers phone until an hour after supposedly sent. Check your vehicles before they go to the next customer. That way you will know if a tire has a leak before you rent it out. Check for tools to change a flat. There were no tools, 1st roadside assistance guy didn't bring tools, wasted trip! Most horrible experience I've ever had with a rental. Your kiosk concept does not work. I called the number on the sign when I brought the vehicle back, the woman at the other Merritt Island location had to tell me where the drop box was. I told her the problems I had had she didn't seem to care!Janet R.
This office is hard to get in touch with. I had to drive multiple times from Merritt Island to Cocoa to get things done. There was a fire door that was broken upon my moving out that prevented some things from being moved but we found a way thanks to one manager (Misty). I also had a lock on my unit when my account was paid and it was like pulling teeth getting that lock off for two days I fought to get it off, my fiancé was ready to cut it off. We had a truck rental just to move my stuff out, well because of the hassle of the lock issue, Misty ended up being able to calm my irritation by waving the fee no matter how late the truck was returned. So Misty is the one who made me less irritated with uhaul.JENNIFER K. | Overall Experience
The key given did not match the original vehicle on the contract. Had the same problem trying to return the key to a lock box that was aleady locked.CHARLES G.

I had a terrible experience at the Merrit island location, was so aggravated and stressed out. I will never rent a vehicle at any of your locations or any other company that does not have a live person working there. I got there an hour before I was supposed to meet my movers and was a half hour late trying to get my keys and approval at this location. It took so long to get approved as there was an issue with inventory at first I called a rep and they said someone would contact me, then a U-haul worker a woman came out by the key box and didn't even look or speak to me or offer any help. I entered my two personal contacts i needed to get approved and i got a text back saying my contact didnt answer. i then had to enter 4 or 5 more contacts. Each time I did this I lost contact with the rep and had to go back and forth on my phone and back to Uhaul site re enter password enter another contact kept getting messeges that my contacts were not approved , it really was a night mare and gave me so much anxiety. it took an hour and a half to finally get my key. Then when I got back after my move to return van, I got a code to enter for the keypad box to put my key back in and the code would not work. I tried lining up the letters and I battled with this for another 15 minuets getting blisters on my fingers trying to get the pad lock to open. I called a rep and she said the code was right and that the letters did not line up properly. I don't understand why I had to struggle so much to line up letters on a key pad for 15 min. I never ever had an issue over the years using any type of lock pad. finally it opened with so much force and struggle. I am sorry that I am venting, but I am a former business owner and very honest and sincerely not the type to post negative things about any company and I would never do so to yours. I am all about being positive and always giving good reviews if I feel like I had a good experience, This time, it was bad. I hope know one else has to struggle the way I did to get a rental in the future, and I am even kinda tech savvy and great with technology and my phone. Vincent A.Vincent A.

customer service was poor. on hold for excessive amount every time I called. I paid for an entire month and moved out only 7 days into it and the rent was not pro-rated but manager wanted to double dip on my unit and close it out so he could rent it again on my dime. Totally unsatisfactory!! Would recommend to anyone to never use U-Haul storage.Bonnie w. | Overall Experience

I had difficulty signing in to pick up-I was supposed to leave at 7am and I left at 7:40 which put me behind. I could not finish by the return time, but, brought it back at 10:15 and got signed out at 10:59. The front tire was low and no way to tell anyone. I had a 49 min wait to report that and even though I came back 45 min early with less miles, I closed out so I could leave and go use my car to finish the move. When I did speak with someone, they told me I closed out the rental and thanked me for my business.Robert S.

The indoor facility AC was broken most of the last 4 months. The slider doors to the front and the roll up drive in doors were broken periodically during our time using the facility. While the bathrooms seemed to be well maintained and well fragranced the rest of the facility lacked cleanliness and upkeep. The donate pile has turned into a trash area with no one coming and collecting anything. Trash bins on the property were rarely emptied. Overall most of the employees encountered were very nice.PHILLIP D. | Overall Experience
First, I got an email from U-Haul stating that I could check-in online and you also have a sign outside the facility to that effect, but I could not do so on Saturday night. So I went to the Rockledge, FL office on Sunday to sign my contract then drove to the Merrit Island, FL facility. It turned out that the unit I reserved was not available. I found this out because there was a lock on the door. Twice I called the local office telephone number but got the U-Haul call center and both times the agents did not know what to do and suggested they could email the General Manager. I needed immediate resoluion and email is not time-sensitive. I drove back to the Rockledge, FL office and was assigned a smaller unit than originally reserved. I did not like the way the General Manager treated me - there was no sympathy for my situation. Unfortunately, I had a trailer full of items that had to be unloaded so I could return the trailer to U-Haul. I was put into a no-win situation. I now have to find another storage facility that can provide the size room I need.Michael S. | First Impressions
The unit they gave me was already in use, it too over a hour to find a suitable solution. Rented a 8×10×10 however none were actually available. The solution was to rent 2 - 5×10×10 units at a higher price. I should have been given the same price for the 8×10×10 since that's what I reserved.Michael J. | First Impressions
A little difficult to get set up because I had to go from Merritt Island to Rockledge to see the person to do the paperwork, but the Lady that helped me was very nice, and cordial. Great experience, base on todays environment. I am very please with the overall experience.KATHY B. | First Impressions
I found a rodent collector and spider webs throughout my unit when I arrived. Being late, I had no choice but to put my belongings in there anyway. Massively disappointing.Jacob I. | Online Move In
I made my reservations on the phone. The lady on the phone told me I would be renting a 10x10x10 unit and I would have outside access. She did not tell me that the office for my rental was on a different city than the rental was in. After waiting at the rental for someone to answer the phone I found this information out. When I got to the Rockledge Fl office, I was told that I had rented two 5x5x10’. They were not side by side and did not have outside access. I have canceled my rental and gone with another companuDIANNE L. | First Impressions
They gave me a storage that was occupied and when I called they sent someone over she said it wasn't any more available units so she walked around the whole facility looking for a unit that didn't have a lock after 20 minutes she found one but it was a 10x12 and I had reserved a 10x10 so I had to pay an extra 15.49 for the unit even though it wasn't my fault I was very unhappy about that and never once did she apologize she just said well it's a bigger unit than what you paid for so you still have to pay the difference I would of been happy with ok well for the inconvenience you don't have to pay the extra 15.49 this month we will waive it for our mistake so unhappy about that and I would tell family and friends about u haul storage and let them no my experience and let them make their own discussion hopeful they would have a better one than I did.VONCELLA R. | First Impressions

- We had a reservation, but did not realize the location was not staffed, which caused frustration on arrival day. - Could not reach anyone to change the unit size, so ended up completely re-booking. - Where to "check in" was not clear - Once we HAD access, everything was super easy - so perhaps just work on the above :)Katie H. | Online Move In

Absolutely terrible customer support. Would never come here again & will ensure none of my colleagues in the area do either.Alexander G.
I rented a 10x20 and got two 10x10s, one of which has a pole in the way which limits the use. Also, the large rodent poison boxes in each space are disgusting and take up space. We wasted a lot of time trying to find the unit. No directions or maps were provided and the numbering system makes no sense from the perspective of the customer. Very frustrating after a long day of moving.Lisa S. | Online Move In
Where to start. I arrive to pick up my truck and the office guy is on a personal phone call about his alcoholism. I waited outside until he was finished. The 6 blankets I requested were not there. The truck was not filled up with gas. He showed me how not to drive with the tow package on. This truck was equipped with an AM/FM radio for my 20 hour drive to Florida. I improvised. Upon arrival, in Florida, the storage unit was 10 miles from the office. No where in the contract was this information stated. At the office, I was assured that a 10x10 unit would be okay for a 1 bedroom apartment and a lock would be inside the unit. Upon arrival, there was no lock and no way I was going to be able to store our belongings. As I was realizing this, my wife redirected 4 other families on where to go in order to check in. There was no Uhaul representative at the actual storage site. My wife had to drive back to the office to rent a second unit. Once we were done unloading, we had to drive back to the office to get a second lock, drive back to the unit and lock it up. Going back to the original truck rental I Texas, I called the office twice and left voicemails that because of bad weather, we were delayed by a day and needed to extend the rental. I did not ever get a call back. Returning the truck to another whole location the next day. I called the information number provided, it rang to a fax machine 3 times. The 4th time someone answered and told me to bring the key inside the convenient store. The clerk asked me if it was gassed up, I said yes and said , ok, your final bill will be emailed to you. Never again Uhaul, never again.Frank K. | First Impressions
Under my contract for my storage unit it states that I would have 24/7 access to my storage unit. While moving last night I ended up getting locked out and could not get back in using my key code after 10 pm. The whole reason I chose U Haul and this particular storage was because it states 24/7 access. I tried to reach the GM with the cell phone number left at the site and it went to voice-mail. I then contacted the 1 800 number and they were not able to remotely let me in. If someone could contact me regarding what I need in order to be able to access my storage unit 24/7 that my contract states I have I would really appreciate it.ISABEL C. | Online Move In

I booked the storage room at the same time that I booked my moving truck (one way rental). I am happy that the first month's rental is free, but that is about as far as my happiness goes as related to the storage use experience. The office for the storage facility is approximately 10 miles from the storage facility itself. So, I decided to use the on-line check in instead of driving so far out of my way to confirm the rental. There was nothing evident in the on-line system or at the facility that discussed how I needed to go about signing into the facility. I needed to put in my unit # and a code into the security panel, and then I could enter the facility by using a separate panel. This is far from evident when a new renter comes to the facility. It took me quite a while to figure out how to get in. Better instructions should be evident at the facility. My unit was as far away from the entrance as it could possibly be, even though several open units were closer to the entrance. I would hope that U-Haul would reserve the closer units first therefore giving people easier access to their unit, and making customers happy.MARK N. | Online Move In

Through my move with U-Haul, everything was great until we got to try to find and get help about the storage unit. We spent over 2 hours trying to find out where to do the first initial check-in. Every time I called the 800 number no one knew what to tell me. Finally, my friend said we're going to a human being. We did find the right place and everything worked out. But if it wasn't for the man (God Bless Him!) who took care of us. The only suggestion is figure a better way to handle the storage unit information to the customers such as where to go etc.Donna F. | First Impressions

If the reginal manager from u-haul would not have been on site taking pictures I would still be standing there trying to figure how to rent the van. I had no ideal know one worked at this location. I downloaded the app set-up account etc etc, then it tells me to go to the desk to resole the issue, turns out, there is no desk. they somehow were able to have the van released so i get the van. I really would rather rent the van from a live person and the number on the van and building takes 30-40min to talk with someone, its a nation wide number, this is no fun either. I love the U-haul facility in Port St. John , real people when i call, real people on site and very nice. It's a sad day when no customer service is available. The van was nice :-). Location Nightmare. Please send me a receipt to email@example.com But this is most likely not going to get read.JOSEPH O.

The only complaint that I had was I had trouble finding the orange box to drop the key offâ€”maybe specify where the orange box isâ€”Elizabeth E.
The storage unit does specify 24hr access to it, I was a little disappointed to learn that there's a $10 fee a month to actually have the 24hr access. The facility is nice and priced just right. Thank you.JENNIFER K. | First Impressions
While the staff at Rockledge was extremely helpful in getting us set up with a unit at the staffless Merritt Island location, the technology at Merritt Island itself was on the fritz -- so, not well-maintained at all -- and we were unable to access our storage unit on the day we rented it. Thank goodness we weren't actually trying to move stuff in that day, because it would've been an absolute disaster! For a staffless facility such as Merritt Island, it's essential that the tech systems be working at all times or that someone is physically present at the location when they're not. When customers can't access or store their items in the facilities during normal business hours, what exactly are we paying for? Not to mention how unsecured it seems our items would be; if someone hacked the system or broke into the building when the system was down, would UHaul even know or be able to stop them?Raegen P. | First Impressions

Improve on the instructions for returning the vehicles, specifically where you put the keys (drop box location). Increase the number of agents for assistance on the phones, waited an excessively long period for help.DAVID K.
Poor App implementation; incomplete instructions, no key drop-off, unreasonable pickup time limits. Took collective 75 mins to reserve vehicle, 15-20 mins of vehicle check-in through App check-in process ( can be confusing and needed to use call-in customer service with wait-cue of 5+ mins. Self-serve NOT recommended at this location. Still has not fixed incorrect $25 charge to clean an already dirty vehicle and reported to customer service ( along with submitted pictures through check-in U-Haul App) prior to pickup. Left dirty from previous user.Carol G.

The U-Haul app did not work on my Android phone. The website also did not work until I switched to Chrome so it took forever to checkout to start with. After that it was smooth sailing.Bruce J.
The online pickup process does not work. There was no key available and when I return the system told me to put the key in a slot that did not exist. Drew was wonderful and drove over from Rockledge to get me a key. I would fix that process or not do rentals from here.Daniel R.

There is insufficient lighting that turns off at inopportune times. No individual unit lights, which are vital for larger units like mine. No ability to select which free unit to pick. Multiple calls to manager were unsuccessful, so my question as to placement of the PODS container for unloading was unclear, I had to wing it causing much more work to get things done same day.Anne B. | Online Move In
The facility is very nice and especially liked the loading/unloading area with the roll up door as the weather was not good. This allowed us to back inside and unload. Unfortunately it would have been nice to get some direction on entry into the facility as this was after hours. At first we didn't think that we could get in with the code. Somewhat confusing. Also, there appeared to be several available units closer to the entrance but we were assigned a unit at the very back of the building. Appreciated the use of the carts as we had a long walk to the unit.Randall H. | First Impressions

Pickup location was littered with broken auto glass around vehicles and does need t feel safe. While I was trying to pick up vehicle I was approached by someone bumming money. Clean up the area. Make it clear that this is a 24/7 pickup location on web site that does not have an office. That confusion resulted in over an hour delay in my ability to pickup vehicle. The adjacent building has a large U-Haul sign on it, but the building is boarded up and looks to be condemned.Ronald H.

Upon returning the truck at 10pm, I found that there was no key drop box to return the keys. I walked around in the dark looking (it's not well lit AT ALL) and finally drove around the building. At first I tried the code box that I retrieved the key from but I couldn't get it to relock. This location does everything by phone instructions, no people are present to help, so I ended up calling UHaul's 1-800 number and the girl I spoke with also couldn't find record of where it should be and asked me if I could hide the key somewhere... I didn't want to be responsible for the van so that didn't thrill me. I was finally able to get the box to relock (if that's how they want to do it, there needs to be instructions because it's not easy) after 45 minutes of being out there alone. The van was nice and clean and worked great but the drop-off situation left a really bad taste in my mouth.Rachel S.
Absolutely terrible online system. Makes it extremely difficult to not only pick up a rental vehicle, but impossible to return. Your online system crashed twice, which was about 30 minutes of my time. Your phone associates are unfamiliar with your locations. Absolute nightmare of a rental from beginning to end.James P.
I've been trying to get assistance since yesterday. I've called in several times. I was advised that someone would contact me today. As of now that has not happened. Last night we dropped the van back at the site. We were advised to leave the keys in the drop box. THERE IS NO DROP BOX! I called to get a code or assistance with this and was told that they couldn't do anything. That 3 other people had rented that day and had no issues. So fine, I went back today when it was light thinking ok maybe I missed it. No again THERE IS NO DROP BOX! I asked a worker there (painter or something) who said he didn't know try walking through the mall. I am not going on a wild goose hunt searching for something that's not there. This is crazy. I just want to drop the keys responsibly and where I don't get fined.Kristen C.
