I had called the day prior and was told that all the auto transports were not available because they were booked. I was told to call 1800 go-uhaul. After waiting on hold forever I made my reservation on the website. I booked an auto transport from the location I called originally and was told none were available. When I brought it back the other 3 auto transports that were there in the morning were still in the same spot. I get that making a reservation over the phone is time consuming, but just do your job.

I'd like to clarify that my interactions with the staff were all top notch. They all seemed really friendly and courteous and they all seemed to be working really hard. My negatives are as follows: 1. mobile check in took way too long, 2. The truck I was renting was quite dirty and 3. I was sent out without the appropriate equipment. 1. Mobile check in was awful. I sat waiting for 45 minutes waiting for approvals and responses from the app. I ended up having to go inside to check in for my rental. Not the locations fault by any means but definitely something that should be addressed by the overall company. 2. I finally got the key to the truck and found ash all over the seats and floor boards. It actually looked and smelled like someone smoked a few cigarettes in the truck and just ashed on the seats and floor boards. In addition, there was an open cup of mystery liquid just sitting on the floor and trash in the passenger seat. In general, the truck was just in bad shape. There was even a massive dented up area that my moving crew even commented on. They were surprised that U-haul would let a truck with thier make on it go out like that. 3. I called ahead and scheduled the pick up of my Ubox . I was told that this request was attached to my truck reservation so that everything should be ready to go when I got there. Between the poor mobile check in experience and having to document so much stuff wrong with the truck, I was an hour behind schedule. I was told to drive the U-haul truck to the Ubox loading facility down the street which I did only to get there and find out that none of the towing equipment was loaded onto the truck. Fortunately, the man at the facility was incredibly kind and offered to go get the parts that should have been loaded for me so I wouldn't add unnecessary miles to the truck. That was amazing of him and I wish I were his name down so he could get recognized. At the end of my experience, I ended up falling an hour and a half behind schedule and I lost 45 minutes of the time I booked with the movers I booked on the U-haul site because I was late. Just a poor experience. Great employees attitudes however; I have to make a note of that I would have been far more upset if not for those employees that helped me

I purchased the insurance for rental. The customer service rep said I did not have to clean the truck because I purchased the insurance. So I did not clean truck. I was charged a $25 cleaning fee plus the tax. Never again will I rent from U-Haul.

You can mark that you don't accept cash through your online reserving. I came there to get my vehicle and had to ask a friend to come in with a card to help me. Also, the dome lights in the front and the bed didn't work. The transmission sounded horrible. I felt like I was going to break down at every stop light. The gas pedal can be almost smashed to the ground before it reached 30mph. There was also a dent prior to me leaving the lot and I made sure to take pictures. None of the clerks did a walk around with me to inspect the vehicle so I documented it myself. I can email those pics and videos if you would like proof.

This is not the location but the reservation experience. I got a phone call two days prior to my rental time and was told that they did not have the two 26' trucks me. U-haul only had one 26' truck and I have to go to SeaTac to get it. I ordered two 26' trucks from Lakewood. I was to get a credit for the difference between the cost of the 26' and the 20' truck that I had to take instead but the credit never came. The person who called me to tell me this said that it's “just a reservation” and not that I had paid for anything. But I'd paid in full for both trucks! It was very unprofessional of a company to not have the trucks that I'd reserved and paid for in the place I ordered it from. My husband asked another representative to file a complaint and was told that he'd hear from someone the next day, but as of four days later, we have not heard a word from a supervisor. We are not the type of people that complain about companies, we just won't be repeat customers but this Is something that we felt strongly about We were treated very poorly by U-haul customer service

The day I rented a storage unit I was unable to access the unit. I sat with a half emptied box truck for over an hour because the staff forgot to unlock the unit prior to renting it to me. No managers were present on site and I sat in the freezing cold the entire time on hold waiting for anyone to pick up.

Guy was nice enough, but still charged me an extra $50 for miles that if I had gotten the right truck in the first place I wouldn't have had to make an extra trip. U-haul in North Bend should pay my bill. This is their fault. They really ruined my whole moving experience, I did not plan on having to make two trips back and forth from Snoqualmie to Tacoma. I am completely disgusted with how U-haul operates their business.

One of the staff members did not wear a mask inside the building or outside while interacting with customers and other employees, despite the international pandemic and public health crisis. I can't recommend anyone visit this location if they don't care about the safety and health of their customers. The other staff members I interacted with were excellent, helpful and professional.

All Uhaul offices should be able to change drop off destinations. Also, I was almost charged the same amount for a 10 foot uhaul that a 15 foot one costs because the worker couldn't see it was cheaper like I could on my end.

I think when reserving a truck the customer should be contacted before switching pickup locations. This is the second time I have been switched to locations way out of my way. Also I'm not sure what the purpose of the mobile pickup is if I have to come in the store & wait in line to pickup the keys.

The staff wasn't terrible, but also wasn't super helpful resulting in my average rating. I asked for $5,000 worth of insurance coverage and they only gave me $1,000, so I'm mainly upset that I didn't get what I requested. Apart from that, the GM was very friendly and you could tell that he really cared about his business through the way he interacted with both his subordinates and the customers.

I wish I could give this more stars, but every single time we ever talked to a U-Haul employee we had negative experiences. They clearly do not hire people that are friendly. It’s especially bad as this was my first experience using their storage facility. It was very confusing at the beginning how we were allowed to enter and exit the building. Every time we asked for help they were unfriendly and somewhat unhelpful. They spoke to us like we should already know exactly what we are supposed to do. I had a huge sense of relief whenever we stopped using the storage facility yesterday. The facility itself seemed maintained well enough. I felt the price was fair. I just don’t recommend this company due to the horrible customer service.
