Customer feedback is extremely important to us. We use these reviews to guide our efforts and improve our service. Everything that follows is direct from our customers, without any filtering or editing on our part.
I should’ve walked away when I rented the storage unit and the person was extremely rude. They then did not set up automatic payment and sent a letter to the emergency contact that I was not paying my bill. I had no idea until I went to the unit and was told I had a past due bill. The facility is almost NEVER secured. Only twice did I ever have to use my access card. The roof leaked and caused boxes to get wet and moldy. I was never notified of any issues however the day we moved out they were repairing the roof. It caused moldy clothes and broken boxes because of the wetness that resulted in broken dishes. The staff said “awesome” and that was it. Absolutely the worst experience ever!Melissa S. | Overall Experience

The 15' truck was old, lots of mileage. Made a noise when moving steering wheel, back door was VERY difficult to open and close and the ramp was difficult to pull out and push in.Donald S.

Check out was very confusing. I wanted the closer location in Clinton but my app wouldn't recognize it. The Clinton location was also very difficult to identify without a U-Haul sign. I had to drive way out of my way to Utica. Tried the app there and it called for a QR code to scan which I couldn't find. Finally went on my account without the app and it just had me complete a check list. If I had not used the app I could have dropped it off in Clinton! Your app sucks for checkout.Andy W.

The interior bumper rails were either broken or missing. We did not notice this until we arrived at our pickup location miles away. Rep said the rails on the older trailers used for local day usage were stapled & glued, not bolted on, like I was used to from using many times moving items from Virginia toLANCE W.

There was a hand truck and moving blankets in the back of the truck, zip tied to the side. I did not request either equipment and I knew if I moved them I would be charged for using them. It was an annoyance to have them there when I was trying to load the truck, I recommend not having them in the trucks.Kyle M.
My van was filthy upon pickup, I had to use extra gas, time and mileage to clean it so that I would not be charged a fee. When I brought it to the attention of the company I was offered a $25 gift certificate like I use a U-Haul on the daily or something.Sarah S.
Only one worker trying to take care of the entire establishment storage and pick up drop off. Was told to leave the truck and he would it check it in on its own. Then charged me a $50 fuel fee even though the fuel was at the right spot.David K.

I was charged just over $47 for having to extend my return time by 1 hour which seems like an unfair charge. The vehicle was returned 40 minutes later than the original time, so it was still back earlier than the new time it was extended to. It felt harsh and would make me think twice about U-Haul in the futureAlexander G.

The experience at the UHaul location was very good. However renting the truck was a nightmare. Online did not have a clue as to actual availability of the equipment. Reservation was confirmed, canceled, confirmed 3 times at least. We ended up renting different equipment than we preferred which did the job, but was cumbersome. Moving is stressful and UHaul's reservation system made it MUCH worse. I will never use UHaul again unless I can go to the actual location in personâ€”and then I will be skeptical. I would note, staff that I spoke with on the phone and especially in person, were always professional and courteous. Damon at Lomond place in Utica checked us in and out, and he was very helpful.Maureen M.

Thanks for the 20 years or so I have had a storage unit with you. Even though management has changed numerous times, the staff was always courteous and friendly. My company has decided to terminate our use of storage needs or otherwise I would have remained a customer.CHRISTOPHER C. | Overall Experience
Management has poor attitude makes you feel unwelcome especially if you’re from out of state they have no respect for anyone who comes into the store they feel that they must take your blood in order for you to have a walker there they have no sense of hospitality and I will never ever purchase anything from the store let alone use anything with the U-Haul name tag on it there’s nothing that they can do or say that will change my mindJonathan A. | Overall Experience

1. The unit I rented had a rodent issue - when moving out of the unit there was rodent dung everywhere. We found multiple boxes which had holes chewed in them along with the items in the boxes. We also found dead rodent carcasses among our possessions. Finally there was an ant nest that was under one of the boxes that we disturbed and ants were everywhere - frankly it was all disgusting. 2. The unit leaked on to my possessions - very irritating. 3. The lock slide on the unit was very difficult to slide open and closed. 4. When we came to visit once there was a uhaul lock placed on our unit - we reported it to the office and they were not very courteous in correcting their mistake. 5. Once we visited when there was a fair amount of snow on the ground and their snow removal was inadequate - we had to climb over a snow pile at the garage door to get in the unit.Richard P. | Overall Experience

I've used storage facilities for various reasons in the past. None as clean and well organized as this location. The move was not organized until the day before. This was the only location with both the truck size and storage room in the area (end of the month). Everything was smooth as silk. Brad was a great help and made the whole process easy. Thanks Brad.John R. | First Impressions
I received water damage in my unit. The day I found out I asked for some assistance and was handed a roll of packing tape to patch the hole in the ceiling as there was no one able to help.

The facility is very nice. The workers were knowledgeable and friendly. The online sign up was easy. The gated system is difficult. Our access code only worked twice and the card only works sometimes. I don’t like that once you are in there is no way out without the card. I get trying to monitor coming and going but it is scary to not be able to get out quickly as needed. Also, the card thinks we are checking in when we are checking out and vice versa. The machine to check you out the display is broken. We have a hard time driving out. We either have to go off the pavement to the grass or if you go the other way we have to do a several point turn to line up with the exit gate.Chad L. | Online Move In

The manager at the Utica branch on Lomond Road - Brian - absolutely ruined our experience. We've had a very stressful time having to move abruptly due to a delay in our house closing from Covid-19. Therefore we rented multiple trucks (4) and also 2 storage units. All - in - all we've spent A LOT of money at the location over the past 2 months. We dealt with Brian a couple of the times and he always had an attitude and was not friendly. One of the times - we had to get into the office (which was difficult due to work hours) and we popped in real quick 10 minutes before closing. We just had a simple question and Brian, legitamately yelled and was upset because they were about to close. He made us feel bad for stopping in and bothering him so close to close. We apologized for it being so close to 7pm, and his reply was an eyeroll while saying, "yeah whatever." We immediately rented a truck / trailer from another company and emptied our storage units. We will not be back - which is such a shame because we've got A LOT more moving to do over the next few months. Very disappointed.Ashley Z. | Overall Experience
