I arrived at 9:45 for my 9am online pick up. I left the parking lot at 11:00. Reasons were two fold: I did not know the uhaul store's wifi password, and i was unable to move my van out of the parking spot until two other customers (who arrived after me), had pulled out of their adjacent spots. -The employee was lovely and calm and asked how she could help. -impossible (at least for a normal driving, which most costumers are) to move the vans out of their space along the storage building's wall bc of the "Spot Hero" parking spot across from the vans. It was impossible for the 2nd and 3rd (mine) van to get out without either the first van moving, or the "Spot Hero" car moving (which was out of our control). If you aren't going to change the parking arrangement, you need to at least make sure that the first van you sign out is the 1st one in the line.

I had bought furniture pads but they weren't in the truck; couldn't talk to someone at the location because i picked it up off hours on a Sunday.

I was unable to pick up the truck at had reserved at the arranged location and was forced to go to a separate location. This loss of time forced me to lose the help of a mover that I had arranged, making the entire job more difficult. I was also told that if the truck was not returned with the same level of fuel that I would be charged $6.50/gallon. I judged that the extra charge was fair for the convenience. I was not told about the $30 fuel surcharge. I request that this charge be removed. Thank you.

Equipment I pre-ordered (dolly + furniture pads) was not available in store when I picked up my truck. I don't understand why you would be able to pre-order equipment that is either unavailable at that location, or the store decided to rent out that equipment to someone else before you. Additionally, we were told that the 10' truck would have a ramp when we ordered, it does not. Last and worst of all, the truck had troubles starting on multiple occasions including when we were picking it up at Value Store It. There were no other trucks available to take so we had to use this one, and it added considerable time to our moving experience.

Original contract had my daughter's name as authorized driver after my driver's license was entered in system. I had them redo it and now I have been charged twice. Suggest you train your employees to understand legalities involved and make sure contracts are filled out correctly.

I was given a number to call when I arrived in Brighton to return my vehicle with no drop off location. When I called the number, it insisted check my rental agreement which contained the number I just called. So I looked to see which uhaul was the closest to me and living on the brighton/allston line, I went to a Uhaul that was less than 0.5 miles away. I get a call in the morning that I wasn't supposed to leave the vehicle there. I was charged a $200 relocation fee. Please do better.

The location is accessible to individuals with storage at the same place and that is very convenient. The equipment was not exactly well maintained and while it is acceptable for short-term trips, I cannot imagine moving across the state, and let alone across country on it.

Trucks should be parked based on time of pickup. It was very challenging getting by truck out of its parking spot, next to a wall and parked very closely between 2 other trucks.

Value It was great! Great company and helpful employees. I am simply pissed off by uHaul lack of communications. I reserved a storage unit a month in advance and then, upon arrival, they didnt have any left. In the city or surrounding areas. That's ludicrous! And unprofessional. I was depending on that storage unit andit didn't happen. Then why do I need a uhaul truck? I didn't need it bec

We missed the fact that there would be a mobile drop-off procedure, which we would be required to complete before dropping off the key, as the drop-box only indicated to START the drop-off there. As such, we're sorry that we were not able to complete it accurately. I would strongly recommend a prominent sign in the vicinity of the dropbox that states that a customer should have COMPLETED the drop off procedure BEFORE dropping the key.

Hector turned an unfortunate situation into a positive one. The 10' truck I had rented hadn't been returned yet and was about two hours late. He offered us water and a comfortable place to sit. We waited about an hour before he got us into an alternate solution (a somewhat smaller cargo van) that worked out just fine instead. Hector kept us in the loop the whole time as he scrambled to get the problem taken care of. I highly recommend Hector's customer service instincts - thank you.

The shocks on the truck were really bad and it was super bouncy the whole time. I was driving very slow and it would still bounce a lot. I had a different experience with other U-Haul trucks in the past so I know the this particular truck needs some repairs.

Gas needs to be checked by the employees before handing over the keys to the truck. Records showed the gas was 7/8 full and it was closer to 3/4 full. And they tried to charge me for that.

Nothing! Well -- a quick tutorial about where the emergency lights are and how to disengage the emergency brake, etc. would have been nice, but these are pandemic times, so I understand the hands-off plan. Joe -- I think his name was -- was just fantastic and so was his assistant, a young woman with shoulder-length blond hair, whose name I didn't get. Joe was incredibly helpful and kind. They made the whole experience so good for me. (I was really nervous about driving in Boston, though I am a seasoned driver elsewhere!) It all went great!

I had a really difficult time with the self checkout. Even with location tracking enabled on my phone, I was unable to pick up the car. I tried multiple apps but it took over 40 minutes for me to pick up the truck; only after a friend came with his phone and tried several internet applications. It was frustrating, and the location was closed due to it being January 1st. I ended up returning the car an hour later than I had planned because of it.

Personnel had any attitude, lack of customer service attitude. They didn't go over the details of the rental, wasn't professional. Most of all, they were not knowledgeable of the functionality of the truck, nor details of the vehicle was renting. In all, they didn't know how yo do their jobs. They gave me one quote and then changed the price when I picked up the truck. Terrible!!!! I had rented from budget before with no issues. Will never rent from uhaul again.
