Cashier offered little to no assistances was more concerned with talking with her co worker than renting the truck- offered no help- only words she said was the truck was to my left - found a person outside who directed me- check in was easy -

They lied about the fuel level of the returned vehicle. They did teach me a valuable lesson about taking pictures of everything when I return equipment if I ever rent from Uhaul again.

I updated my reservation to a different date due to us hiring men to load the truck and we decided to leave later in the month and the additional days was not needed. I was told I had to keep the additional days and I could not change them, reservation allowed me to change it and I did this way ahead of time. I think this is wrong. If I needed to cancel that reservation and start over this should have been told to me. Online or someone should have call. I think I was taken advanage of and it cost me an additional 600 dollars. We kept the trunk even though we didn't need it. The trunk was great and our trip went well. Representative was nice, but I think it was wrong the way we were charged.

Truck was not available at scheduled pick up time due to lack of staging by location. This did not meet the requirement of the reservation, caused major inconvenience as well as additional cost as we had movers scheduled based on when we could have the truck. I would appreciate a manager calling me to discuss additional refunds as the lack on preparation from uhaul cost us over $100 in delays.

Mostly average. Staff were not unhelpful when in person, but phone calls are rarely answered and only after very long waits. Person hooking up trailer was efficient and professional. Not a bad location, overall, as long as you visit in person.

I originally called the 1800 ## for UHaul and was made a reservation at the Industrial Park Mini Storage in Fultondale. I informed the lady that that location had been hit by a tornado in January, and I did not think they had U Hauls anymore; my personal unit was damaged. She insisted on giving me the reservation. So , I called the Manager at the mini storage who informed me that they in fact did not have trucks at this time. So, I called UHaul back and was told that I had to go to East Lake as this was the closest location with trucks. She said it was only 5.3 miles from Fultondale; that is still being charged to me. I took the reservation, confirmed with my out of town help. So, that morning I show up as scheduled, walked in the door, and was happy there was only one other customer in the store. I was then told that my they did NOT have a truck. Then the message came through on Messenger on my phone! Really? The only truck in town was in Vestavia which is literally back the EXACT way I had come, past my house. The lady at the counter was very short with me and said that she did not have a teruck and if I wanted one, I had to turn back around. So, I informed my help, who had driven from Auburn, and were on a tight schedule. I was attempting to call the Vestavia location and my battery died. So, back into the store I go, and the lady would NOT call for me. She said she looked it up. I personally feel as though she should have picked up the telephone and called if not for my reassurance, for at least the fact that I was a customer and had asked her to. But, on a time crunch, I left. By the time I drove all the way back to Vestavia, got the truck, then drove to my destination, (Mt. Olive) I was almost an hour late. Not only were these helpers being paid overtime, I had a land lord waiting. Not a good first impression. Now, let me give credit where it is due. The young man at the Vestavia store did upgrade the truck from a 10' to a 15' foot in hopes that we would not have to make and extra trip. He was pleasant, efficient, and truly concerned at the problems I had that morning. The truck was in good working order, and clean, except for the HONEY BUN ON THE DASH! Not sure if that was for me or not!! LOL But, in closing, the stuff got moved. The only people who seemed to care were the guys in Vestavia. They were extremely busy, yet remained calm and peofessional.

The reservationists confirmed my one way rental for a 26ft truck and upon pick up, it appeared to be an in town rental and it caused me an hour delay. Thankfully the young man at that location came in early that morning and was able to reserve me a 20 ft truck which was acceptable but not what we needed.

Have the right equipment at the right location! This was the fourth location for us to go to for renting his truck, and then it was not the size that we had agreed to rent! The first truck location was an hour away from where I had requested to pick up. When I called to try to get one closer, I was told there were not any available closer. When I called to go and pick up the truck, I was told it was a location it was only about 15 minutes away, which was very good. But when we got there they did not have a 15 foot truck, and sent me to another location. Got there, and they didn't have the truck. This is when they sent me to the fourth location, and all available was a 20 foot truck. After some discussion, we were given a 20 foot truck for the agreed-upon price for the 15 foot truck. What should've taken only a few minutes to walk and sign papers ,pick up keys etc. turned into an hour and a half, and a lot of driving! Unsatisfactory experience all the way around!

Employees were on their phones and watching TikTok videos while checking me in and i could could watch them as well as the phone was sitting next to the keyboard. Poor impression, poor customer service. U-Haul should be ashamed. If sign says mask required, then mask should be required. Not a huge deal but they are either required or not.

Tried to call, on line chat and email because I had questions about my rental. No response from anyone. Waited on the phone so long and then was disconnected. Truck was so dirty we had to stop to clean the windshield just to see. Gas was on 3/4 but it was not noted on the contract. It was a very frustrating experience.

Previous to getting this location, I had setup rental online at a different location, then Uhaul moved my reservation to another location. When I go there, they were not open within 3+ hours of my desired rental time, where several other close locations were. I was very aggrivarted by this process and the time lost was not acceptable. I will not be booking Uhaul online again,

The girl at the counter was on her personal phone scrolling through pictures and texting the whole time I was in line and while she was in the middle of checking me in. Painful to stand there face to face with her waiting while she was scrolling and playing on her phone. I wanted to slap it out her hand so I could rent the trailer and be on with my day.

I set up my order at the Helena location to be closer. I was told they would have everything, only to be told later I would have to go to the Vestavia Hills location, adding over 36 miles to my total planned commute. I was then told I had to pay this mileage, despite the company and planner not doing their job. I should not be charged for these additional miles I had to drive and will be filing a formal complaint. I should not have to pay extra for the company not doing their job correctly.

For the 2nd time in renting within the past few months, I signed up online for one location, but later was told the trailer/truck wasn't available at that location. This time it wasn't a big deal because I was able to go to another location that was close by. However, last time it was much father than my original location. While I appreciate that Uhaul found me an alternative, why am I permitted to make a reservation online when the equipment isn't available? Please get better at this. Otherwise it was a very pleasant experience.
