The vehicle we requested and promised in our contract was not there when we arrived at the appointed time prescribed by our contract. We were given a different vehicle we had to pay more for, Classic “bait and switch “going on here. Rather disappointed. I expected to pay $25” plus a little extra for going

Laura, who helped me start my rental unit process, was available throughout the entire time I had a storage unit. I cannot comment enough about how helpful, friendly, and kind she was during my rental stay. She even came out and helped direct me when I was backing up to load up. I would definitely recommend and use this place again.

The vehicle was very old and not well maintained. Had excessive damage all around. The vehicle even had a cracked dashboard. Then the lady working at this location entered the wrong mileage so I ended up being charged for mileage that I did not drive. The entire experience was not very good and therefore I will not be using uhaul at this location ever again.

While my initial service with the young lady was great (sorry I don't remember her name, she has green hair) She was beyond hospitable!!! Dale I believe is his name was however beyond RUDE via several phone calls. He escalated his voice at one point and actually said “well I'm not sure what you want me to do about it”. After this experience sadly I will not be using U-Haul. Sadly his incompetence overshadowed all the great things about the rest of the staff. Honestly I don't believe he should be left alone at the place of business to even answer phones.

I was quoted $30 for one day with 30 miles free. The truck was driven a total of 18 miles and the costs was $96 + - a pretty big jump in costs to me. I'll only use U-Haul as a last result.

There was an issue with this location not having a furniture dolly that we had reserved. We had to drive across town (in the truck) to get one and we were not offered any sort of discount which I thought was weird. It was rather inconvenient.

Laura was very nice and thorough. She pointed out the dent on driver side at top of the truck in which I was unaware of. She told me there should have been a sticker if previous customer reported this. That was a mistake on my behalf for not inspecting the entire truck. I'm glad that I purchased the insurance. I just hope that I will not be responsible for this dent.

Moving just after Hurricane Zeta sent its100 mph gusty eye through our New Orleans (Metairie) neighborhoods, was quite a challenge. But Laura Hudson worked hard (on Hurricane-induced power-lost computer systems, and a no-lights, no-elevator building) to find me a GROUND FLOOR unit, so we didn't have to try to carry 45 pieces of Office Furniture up to the 2nd floor. She was helpful in many other ways, too, so I can't compliment her enough.

Ok, so the gas check needs to be fixed! I used the truck for only 7 miles and while returning I added some gas of around 1 gallon which should have covered the 7 miles I drove but I was still charged 4$ for gas. That is something I wasn't happy with.

When we dropped off the uhaul I was notified that there was a scrap/ dent despite no accidents or hitting any objects. We were then told that we should have recorded when picking up the uhaul. The dent/ scratch was difficult to notice if you do not spend much time around the uhaul. We did a walk around of the truck before driving it, but the scratch/dent was not recognizable for someone who does not examine the truck. Would recommend that you make it more clear in email or when picking up rental. Also would recommend maybe videoing the entire truck before on a walk around since some of the scratches/dents may take a more trained eye for identifying.

Disclose the expected mileage of each vehicle. The vehicle I rented (15') required 5+ gallons for 9 miles of use. Either the vehicle got 2 mpg or it was not, in fact, full.

Y'all quoted me $55 when I rented the truck and then tried to charge me $94-something over a little mud on the step on a rainy day. I argued and ended up paying $84, but that's still rediculous. Bait and switch at its finest.

They were having an EXTREMELY hard time with the application that's supposed to check the truck back in... between the technician giving her the wrong mileage, to the system kicking them out, I'm still not sure we were charged correctly...if my son hadn't been moving ALL and wasn't dog tired I would have questioned it more!

Nice and clean facility. Only had an issue when moving out I was apparently given the wrong keys to the lock on my storage costing me $85.00 and two hours of my time to have a locksmith remove the lock. I just felt that it shouldn’t have been on me to cover the cost if I was issued the wrong keys. Management was no help at all and told me that if I had a locksmith come out she would have to supervise him to ensure no damage to the storage (also verified that she was the manager of the facility). When the locksmith arrived she appeared to be busy but never acknowledge the fact that I was standing there with the locksmith man. I walked outside where I saw another associate and asked if she had a moment to monitor the locksmith man to ensure there was no damage and she informed me that usually they don’t monitor work of the locksmith and that we could proceed with the process of removing the lock. Manager who did know that the locksmith man was on site never appeared even through out her emphasis that we needed to be monitored. The entire situation to me was handled poorly and I’ll never return my business to this facility again.
