The staff and vehicle were fine but there is a large number of, frankly, scary vagrants camped out in the uhaul lot offering services and panhandling. Management clearly allows this as they were there all day and several other reviews mentioned the same problem. The lot has a fence and is private property so management could clearly expel them for traspassing. Not sure why they continue to allow this when countless customers have complained.

Customer should be escorted to vehicle vs telling customer the space # vehicle is parked in. In my case I had to hunt to find space KKK only to find that a vehicle had to me moved to allow me access to my vehicle.

I use Uhaul 2-3 times a year. My recommendation is purely based on my location's selection and availability, not about service level. No matter how few people are in line at this location, I always have to wait. Always. In my last reservation, I counted five employees walk past me for a total of ten minutes with NO ONE in line. I finally asked, "Are you open?" before I was acknowledged. Ten minutes - mostly alone in the office as employees wandered around with no sense of urgency. I stopped using the mobile app a year ago, because ironically, it takes longer to rent a vehicle and requires an employee. And why do you ask for things like license picture on your reservation website module? I always have to provide it again on site. I typically budget 45 minutes to get in and out of your location because of massive incompetence by your staff and general operational guidelines. My last time was a record 25 minutes with no one else in line and a reservation with all my information pre-filled out.

It would be better if the gas level is always full and each customer just has to fill it up when returning. It's hard knowing exactly what level the gas was. You guys are the best. I'm always coming to this location.

I have never had such a terrible experience ever in my life. As a member of media, I will make sure Uhaul gets enough attention of the truth behind ridiculous charges, services, and poor customer-care.

I had to wait 15 min for the check-in as I wanted a printed receipt to verify the charges for mileage. Otherwise the check in was efficient when I was meet at the vehicles when I pulled in.

MICHAEL T.

My only concern was the vehicle I received was clean but had several mechanical issues. Vehicle down shifted several times inadvertently, vehicle needed an alignment, braking was uneven. Staff was friendly.

I returned the trailer 3 days ago on 12/30/20. Today I got a bill saying it was returned yesterday and I was charged $40 for extra days. This is wrong and it needs to be fixed

Jeffrey M.
Rating:

The young woman who checked me in was exceptional. Very friendly and helpful taking time to explain all options to me. From there it went downhill. Gas tank was not full and cab was dirty. Poor selection of dollies. Had to rent an appliance dolly which was more expensive and too much for the task I had to perform. Reserved a utility dolly but none were available when I actually went to pick it up even though it was reserved.

JAMES D.

truck was not ready when promised; staff was rude and uninterested in helping customers; truck died during use and had to be jumped. Talking to anyone at the place was like to talking to a brick wall - unresponsive. They could care less.

The gentleman who handled the return pulled me out of line in the store to handle the uninstalling of the trailer outside. He did it quickly, and he stayed behind to answer a couple of follow up questions. He was quick, professional, and very respectful/courteous.

Ordered a dolly when I made reservations 3 weeks ago . There was NO dolly avail or any explanation . Cus service team continued their own personal conversations and I had to wait for them to get thru. I added gas to bring the fuel back to same level but they charge me for 2 gallons . NOT a good experience at all

My issues with this rental wee not based on the location or staffing. Staff members on site were delightful and helpful. I was QUITE agitated with the app and the alleged contact-less pick-up promised by the Web site. I was so agitated in fact that this will be the LAST time I use U-haul. At the time of pick-up, I was finally being prompted to upload a photo, a driver's license, etc., all of which *should* have been requested in advance of that so that my move could start on time and NOT 45 minutes later than scheduled.

Your app is horrible. I checked in online prior to pickup but none of that info was in the system. We had to repeat everything I did in advance. App I does not work for self return. I have tried numerous times to add photos of the trailer I rented. Your app fails every time. I would fire you app developer and start fresh. Hooks on mist trailers will not fit on my hitch. Only the newer trailers have large hooks. Though I will not always know if when I arrive at uhaul whether they will have a trailer that will fit my hitch. One last item is that one of the reps did not have a working wire. We spent 20 mins problem solving. Then the mgr came up and showed her wire was broken. If she had a tester, she would have not wasted my time. In fact she was going to cancel my res since she thought the issue was on my truck. She needs better training.

Mobile pickup wasnt available. Was told there was no dolly or furniture dolly available. The truck had issues during initial accelerations. Thankfully there was a truck for us of our required size, but was told that they did not have available all the trucks customers might be expecting that day.

Looked like a hangout outside. Waited in line for no reason. Seems like one of the workers wondering around could have directed me what to do with my return before standing in line.

I called when returning late and paid for an extension they refuse to understand this and keep telling me I owe them more. it's infuriating and leads me to not endorse using them to anyone else

WHITNEY E.
Rating:

I was given incorrect information regarding the return policy by a UHaul representative (the store did not answer my call so my call was redirected to the customer support hotline) . Because of that incorrect information I received was unfairly charged an additional $100. Rather than the store immediately refunding the money, I have to wait up to 72 hours to hear back from customer service to correct this issue. It's extremely frustrating that my money is tied up because of an issue that was not my fault. In the future, if the issue is on the fault of the company, it's my belief that it should be up to the store to have their $100 tied up, not the customer.

I WANT to write a 5-star review for this service, but unfortunately I lost about $440 using U-Haul's affiliated service, Moving Help. I cancelled an order (#80ef9c66) on 10/29, and was assured that a refund should appear in my account within a week or so. I've called U-Haul customer service three times now, and each time the service rep apologized for the delay and said they'd fixed the problem. Still no sign of the money in my account. The U-Boxes themselves were a great experience - I just want my refund is all! :(

THIS IS FOR THE GEORGIA AVENUE LOCATION IN DC. I showed up ready to move and there was no one at the Uhaul location. I followed the prompts on my phone to pick up the Uhaul truck using contactless pickup, however, my app kept saying the location wasn't open until 8 am even though it was 9 am of the same day. I called the number provided and the person on the phone told me this Uhaul location was closed EVEN THOUGH I WAS ABLE TO RESERVE A TRUCK THAT DAY. Seriously, this is a terrible location and I'm not alone. Look at the Google Reviews. I had to drive 15 miles away to the New Hampshire avenue location where the customer service was mediocre but was able to get a truck quickly. Regardless I had to pay extra for the miles. I will look for another rental truck service in the future at this experience was a nightmare.

The interior of the truck was very dusty and dirty. It was evident that it had not been cleaned recently. This was very concerning still dealing with COVID.

JOHN M.

It would be nice to have more directions regarding dropping off the truck. I asked how to return the truck when I picked it up and was told that would be guys around outside that I could ask when I got back. When I tried to get more clarity, I was told the same thing. There are many guys milling about the Uhaul property but it's hard to tell if they are employees and if not, if I could get correct information from them. I ended up dropping off using the app to drop because I was confused about where to take the truck and it seemed like there wasn't any employees around to ask. When I put the key in the drop off slot, it fell on the ground inside the store. Since I had already paid via the app, I just left it there without checking that someone would know to come get it.

Windshield was not clean plus pickup bed was full of leaves. Some pick up trucks had bungie cords in the back bed but personal said that the pickup I had did not come with one. The insurance I paid was 25.00 per day. I only used the pickup for about three hours. I feel the insurance rate should have been pro rated. Thanks for your time and help.
