Both the woman that initially checked us out, and the man that took care of the return, were pleasant and helpful. The location in Truro is easily accessible and the interior of the store was very clean and bright.

We had a major issue when attempting to return the dolly trailer near our home. We were told that we could drop off the trailer at O.K. Tire here in Westville. After searching for 20 minutes for the location ( they recently relocated) they informed us that they were not a U-Haul depot. They sent us to the other end of town to another depot. We wasted over an hour trying to drop off the trailer.

I made an online reservation for a 20’ truck and was given a 26’ truck. The woman who confirmed my rental the day before pick up confirmed to me that it was a 20’ truck. She did not tell me the truck would be in a totally different parking lot behind the building. When returning the truck I spent an hour at the Halifax location only to be told there was a error with the mileage and that the contract was put on hold. Terrible experience, will not use uhaul again.

I was surprised to find out that UHaul maintains a hold on a customer’s credit card for 5 to 7 days after payment upon return of the vehicle. I have not run into this before. Typically the hold is released when payment is cleared. Customers should be advised of this in advance.

If they were going to charge me a whole day for being a few hours late it would have been nice to know, as it was partially uhauls fault. I had to bring in extra help to unload quicker to get it back by 6 as they requested when I called that morning. They didnt mention a penalty but made it sound like it would be fine as long as it was back before 7. I could have dropped it the next day for the same late fee and not hired an extra person.

Very very disappointed with our service. We had issues with the booking being changed and were told it was being looked into. No response. Paid full price and after they so stringently wanted it back by 11am we waited 15 mins after 11 (having been there before then to even be waited on). DO NOT USE THE TRURO LOCATION. If you search UHaul Truro on Facebook you will find many many bad reviews from the new location. Basically you are treated as though you can't complain because they have a monopoly in this town. Will not be recommending to anyone who do business with in this town ever again. I recommend everyone read the online reviews before they book. They do not value their customers. Will be contacting the BBB and local newspapers

When I initially called to book a moving van I was hung up on. Then I called back and I think got a call center. The man I spoke to was very impatient. He gave me no information and just wanted me to book the truck. When I said I wanted information he said to just book the truck as I could cancel at any time. I did book the truck and went to the office on court street the next day and got more information. The people there were very nice and answered all my questions. However they did have me change my date as the date I booked previously would not have had the carovan available so they would have had to bring it from away which would have been an extra charge. When I went to pick up the van there was a problem with the internet and it took about 25 minutes to get the paper work done as they had to upload my license. The person who waited on me seemed fairly new as she was asking the other lady who worked there questions. The other lady appeared annoyed and didn't seem to want to help. The carovan was clean and ran well. The court street location closes at 7 so I arrived at 6:55 and it was closed. There was another customer also there wondering why the location was closed before 7. So I then went to do self checkout. What an ordeal that was. You have to go online. Set up an account. It wouldn't allow me to set up the account so I called the 1 800 number and got someone friendly. This is all while standing outside the building. Thank goodness it had stopped raining. The lady I spoke to was amazing and walked my through getting signed in. The process took about 45 minutes to complete you have to answer questions and have to take pictures and upload them to prove your mileage, gas, and that the van is clean etc. I would not recommend you use uhaul if there is another company you could use.

Check In- Fine, Vehicle worked fine, check out was terrible. Took 45 mins and there was nobody else in the store. Counter rep took multiple phone calls while working on my file which should have taken 5 mins. Was quoted $434.70 for 1800 kms of use, with $0.20 per km over that. Used 1920 which should have been $24 plus tax additional and ended up paying $575 somehow. The people at the counter assured me it was right but it wasn't. Wouldn't use this location again.

When I rented the truck from 8am to 8pm and returned with in that time frame I was charged for an other days rental rate and it took longer to do the self check in because it was hard to get a good enough picture for the web sight to accept.so it made me about a half an hour late returning it.

I was pleased with everything except your billing practices. I did not like you putting pending transactions through on my visa. Not only that but these transactions were incorrect in the price of my service and it looked like they were charged on my visa from my phone. I almost had a heart attack when I seen the transaction payments. I called your office right away and the clerk assured me I was not going to be charged this amount. Please change your billing methods, as I spoke to some of my friends and they also do not like your billing methods. Other than that I was very pleased with everything else.

It took an exceptionally long time to complete our transaction. We were told we could have the vehicle until 4 o’clock the next day. We then received a text from another office saying it had to be back on the same day. I was unable to talk to someone at the local office when I called back and the person I talk to From the call centre was rude and dismissive. There appears to be huge miscommunication between the local office and the head office.

Customer service was fine. I was not happy about booking a month in advance for a 10’ truck and given a 17’ truck. On top of that I had to return the truck to a location I did NOT choose that was out of my destination town. When I tried to resolve this I was told too bad. I called uhaul Canada and was told the best they could do was a $30 refund. When I got there they gave me a $25 refund and said that’s all that was authorized. It was frustrating!

When I placed my order I selected check out in the location - not self check out -yet UHaul took it upon themselves to alter my order a few days later to self check out - which did not work so I ended up in the retail location anyway. (Good thing I did because the equipment I asked for hadn’t been loaded) When completing my order online it gave me a total which did not match the total at the retail location (by $150) if a deposit is required please include this in the total balance due - it’s fraudulent to ask for payment in one amount then process another. Self return didn’t work and 5 days later I still don’t have my refund for the deposit because the return location never processed my truck return. The truck itself was great. The expectation and follow through poor.

had a credit card but was given the truck without one. they made me give them 100 cash deposit. truck fuel was not correct or agreement. no drop off location was provided and once it was it seemed to change multiple times. from my original call for my u haul and the surrounding confusion I received a minimum of 6 calls from your company with each person passing the buck. one person told me unless I was willing to go into Halifax for a 3rd time and debate the bill with the location I would be held responsible for 3 days late ? the truck was returned within 6 hours of my entitled 24 hour period. I was not explained km overage or what my limit was. I replaced the gas to where your paper work said even though I received in just above empty. after all said and done the 2 ladies working at windmill were atleast nice enough to waive the overage for km and give me back my deposit seeing how much of mess the file and issues were. I am still out the gas money and my time and my effort. your company is close to a manopoly so I'm sure I will be forced to continue to use you but I have shared this experience with my 12k followers on insta and told everyone I know and come across asking how my move went. worst experience hands down and never had problem in the past. most un organized company of all time for sure. I was told to photograph the truck in future a d gas levels when I rent as if they know they have scammers . seems insane for a company of this size. my two cents and opinion .

When I booked the truck, it says on my contract that I have 147 kms allowed. I used only 110 kms. When I returned the truck, they told me that I exceeded the mileage. Something is wrong with the system. Go figure.

When i called and requested a half ton truck to tow my camper to the cottage when my truck broke down i requested a 4x4. At that time i was not told the truck i rented was not 4x4. I had the pleasure of being informed of that upon picking up the truck. When i arrived at the cottage to place my camper on flat ground but wet grass i got the truck stuck. When the camper was disconnected from the truck, it still was stuck. (Wet grass, mud, ) To make matters worse was how i was stuck and where...... middle of the lawn. The truck was spun down 2inches. thats not much, was less than halfway from the tread on the tire to the rim. The wonderful 2wd truck was not able to free itself from my lawn or dig its way out because of the poor tires installed on it. I suggest having some 4x4 trucks for situations like this theres others im sure that have encountered this im sure

Darrin and Michelle at the Court St. location went above and beyond in their efforts to facilitate our move. Couldn't ask anything more from them. Although I have never rented or driven an U-Haul vehicle before, I have heard some negative comments about difficulties involved in driving one of your vehicles. Darrin did explain to me that vehicle maintenance was conducted in Dartmouth. May I suggest that a maintenance report be available in each vehicle for customers to review in order to give them some confidence that the vehicle has been properly maintained and potentially not cause problems while on the highway.

Better than Newport. The guy at the desk was friendly but man he didn't listen. Just a darn broken record. I kept trying to get him to stop saying the same irrelevant jargon over and over, but he just wouldn't quit. I would call him "friendly" and "a nice fella", but goodness gracious just listen to what I'm saying for a darn second and stop interrupting me. I would have a beer with him, but 1/5 for my experience with him at uhaul. C'mon guys. I don't write bad reviews. This is just an awful enough system that I can't just stay quiet.

Had my pickup location changed on very short notice (60min) to a location across town that closes earlier. When I didn't get there on time, I went to my original pickup location and had to argue for nearly an hour before they gave me a different truck. This was a very frustrating experience.
