The truck rented ran bad cause bad fuel milage. 1 or more rear tires out of balance causing truck to shake. The steer was so bad it was dangerous. Maybe do some maintenance on your equipment.

i was under the impression that it shouldve been like 30$ after the gas mileage and it came out to 80$ when i returned it. something about feul. which makes no sense and is ridiculous. if its because i didnt refill it before returning it then why did i pay for miles/gas in the first place.

We turned the truck in on 5/21/22 @9:45. Very busy, clerk took key and said they would take care of moving truck. The deadline to turn truck in was 5/22/22 @ 10:00. We received a receipt for an extra day. The truck was entered as turned in on 5/22/22 @ 12:30. We now have the inconvenience of returning to Uhaul to have corrected. We feel confident there are cameras at the facility to verify time of return. They should have a system to drop keys during business hours that would record date and time or just require customers to wait.

I got there at 8:45 and 3 more customers arrived behind me. Doors opened at 9. It may help to have more than 2 employees working, especially when you first open, so that the influx of customers needing rentals can be helped in a timely manner. Peyton (I think that was his name) was professional and courteous.

I chose mobile check in, but it didn't work so I had to go inside for assistance and had to restart the process. They were unprepared for my arrival even though I had scheduled it for a week in advance. The furniture pads I ordered weren't in the truck and I had to carry them myself. The truck was parked in the middle of multiple trucks and I had to wait for them to move trucks out of the way and then had to back out without assistance.

I asked for a dolly and they didn't have one but offered a appliance dolly instead which I agreed to but when I got to the loading place there was no dolly on the truck. I had to buy 2 straps from the movers to tie my things in the truck because the wood on the side was broke and couldn't use it. I really believe I should get some kind of refund for the extra trouble, maybe small to you but just another stress for me.

I arrived to store items at 6:15 pm after being told this would be fine. The gentleman told me to come back tomorrow, after speaking to his manager. I explained that was not acceptable as I lived 1.5 hours away. It took me 30 minutes to finally get a box to unload my items. This was a very disappointing and frustrating experience. Hopefully, I won't need to use this uhaul location again. Lack of help, lack of support, and lack of willingness to help.

Well first of all I was over charged they charge me a fule charge even though I put 20 dollars in the gas tank it was exactly where the tank was when it picked it up. I called and spoke with the customer service at the store. He said would refund us 15 dollars back but still hasn't done this yet I'm not happy how they treated us. We even spent 15 dollars cleaning the truck out and spraying it off. I would like someone to call me about this 681-3618363

The roof of the box on the rental leaked allowing rain inside, getting our mattresses and other possessions wet. The staff wasn't helpful when I told them about this issue and still charged me full price for the rental even though I had purchased insurance for the rental. Also, the store does not have a barcode outside to scan for mobile pick up so every transaction has to be done at the counter.

I feel I was charged way to much for a pickup truck. They held 39.00 for the truck but still charged me 14.00 more dollars, I thought the truck was 19.99 plus miles

My rental agreement stated that I had to return the truck before 7:00 PM on the 28th. The truck was returned prior to 7:00 PM, but they failed to check it in until a half hour after I turned it in, therefore charging me for another day. I am quite upset with this tactic and may contact my bank to dispute the charge. This was one of the lowest forms of taking someone's money that I have ever experienced. Thank god I have finished my move, but I can assure you that after spending well over $2,500.00 renting equipment and moving supplies from U-Haul, I will look elsewhere for any future moving/rental/packing needs.

Customer service was awful. The Sunday staff need to be taught how to interact with customers. No one ask if we had been helped. The guy at the counter said maybe 3 word during the entire transaction. Had to ask about the free lock that was advertised online. I was charged for all the mileage, when the add on line said first 30 miles where included in fees any miles after the first 30 were .69 per mile. What’s up with that, Uhaul?

I called to secure 3 storage units days before our travel date of Saturday, November 6, 2021. Spoke on Monday, November 1,2021. to Jacqui to secure 3 units. She was pleasant; however, little knowledge of how to rent units with someone in the back ground giving her direction. Received an e mail confirmation for only one unit, called again spoke to Kyle with my concern of only on confirmation on 3 units. Kyle assured me that I was “all set” for our arrival on Nov 7th. Arrived Saturday, presented my reservation number and the worker saidthat we did not have a reservation. The attendant seemed very distracted, no concentration and “out to lunch”. The second attendant wasn’t much better. Very disconnected and not helpful. Inside restroom just nasty. Asked if they wanted to inspect our return truck and mileage. The response was “no we don’t worry about that”. Storage units poor, trouble closing and getting lock on door. Uhaul truck blocking access to unit 145 .. attendants no idea how to more the company owned truck. This is very disappointing, not a good impression of folks moving into the state. Not a good representation of Uhaul very sad and management should step up and make some major changes.

Our unit leaked, and our possessions were covered in mold and mildew. Everything smelled and is basically a loss. Staff seemed uninterested in helping other than to tell us to make an insurance claim. Customer service was disappointing. Even if we are able to recoup and rebuy, there are things in the unit that are irreplaceable (pictures, baby book, etc.). Even a tiny bit of empathy would have gone a long way.

So incredibly easy to take care of something that is usually a logistical pain. Everything could be done from my phone, and it was really convenient that I could access my unit and return my truck event though it was past store hours. I called an employee a couple minutes past close to ask some questions and he picked up and stayed on the line with me for probably 20 minutes just trying to help me out. Great overall. Would absolutely recommend to friends.
