Excellent service in that we were able to change date easily at the last minute. Gas fill-up when complete .. wish it could be just return it full so there's no guessing whether you got it to 3/4, or 7/8, ... Thank you!

The truck ran and handled well, but driver comfort was compromised by the awkwardness of getting in and out of the vehicle and lack of ability to regulate the seat angle. Also, several years ago I rented a U-haul vehicle to pull a boat and trailer that weighted in excess of 4500 lbs. That vehicle, which was larger, and pulling 4500 lbs got better gas mileage that the one I just rented which, at best, carried 1000 lbs. Every part of the rental experience was very good, except vehicle access and pathetic mileage. Based on the latter I would not recommend U-Haul to a friend.

Thank you

Robyn W. on


waited in line 15 minutes because the guy behind the counter assumed I was with the customer in front of me.

The whole process was very smooth and efficient ! I was particularly pleased that they were open on a Sunday plus they were willing to hold the vehicle for me till I got the full logistics done to actually move the stuff. Thanks to the person handling it at the cashier's desk...Phil.

We had no tail lights on the trailer. They checked the brake and turn signals only. After 4 hours it turned dark and we realized there where no tail lights. Our truck was checked by a local garage and all electrical worked. U haul left us in a very unsafe situation.

I was not able to select a close drop off location and U-Haul tried to send me miles out of my way. The website is not user friendly in this regard.

Barbara P. on


Great Service - nearby location. Thank you.

Kristen K. on


The young man at the hardware store was very helpful! Thank You!

More info on what type of truck to be used. Like the gear shifting on the side of the wheel. I am not used to driving a truck, what more a different type of gear shifting feature to be used.

Jennifer T. on


This is not the fault of the location, but both times I went in in the last six months, the system failures caused me to wait almost an hour to check out. The online systems lock up and trigger a phone call to uhaul to process. SO ANNOYING! EVERYTIME!

Nothing you where kind and nice

Van smelled like cats, when I got it home I swept it out to make sure there were no pet hairs that would possibly get into my mattress.

The pickup process was too slow. The employee who handled the transaction did not appear to be adequately trained. Also, the fuel gauge showed that the tank was 3/4's full. However, the rental document stated that it was 7/8's full. I mentioned this to the employee and he stated that he would adjust the record to reflect the correct pick-up fuel level. When I returned the vehicle, it was 7/8's full. However, the drop-off fuel was recorded as 5/8's full and I was charged approx. $26. After I complained, the fuel charge was reversed. Overall, I was not satisfied with the performance of Robinson Hardware.

Small inventory of equipment. I could not get the trailer I wanted - had to get something bigger than I needed.



Due to cold weather need to start / clean truck at least 1/2 hour prior to pick up

Robert W. on


Would of been nice if the vehicle was ready to go, had to clean off the ice and snow, had to come back to use their hammer to get the back door open as it was frozen shut. Previous user did not close the door all the way so ice was built up on the inside latch causing the door not to close all the way - making a noisy ride with the wind howling through the door.

MIKE M. on


Great service



Nothing Robinson's location is the best, well run and very informed and professional!

David P. on


The trailer had leaves and congealed dirt in it. The leaves were ok as they blew out. The dirt was harder to clean

suzanne c. on


The rental pickup location was conveniently located, ample parking, next to a gas station. The staff was polite, knowledgeable and respectful. Thank you for a great experience. The U-Haul was easy to drive also. Who knew you don't need a CDL license for it. I will most definately use U-HAUL again and/or recommend. THANKS, UHAUL and THANKS, ROBINSON ACE! Best, Suzanne Coyle

10/02/17 To begin, I have never rented from U haul before. I placed two phone calls to U Haul of Cohoes NY. Each time I spoke with a lady who was very helpful. Little did I know that this person was not at the actual Cohoes location, perhaps a general service person? Each time I was lead to believe that I was picking up my car transport trailer at the Cohoes U Haul, (just a SHORT 6 MINUTES from where the vehicle to be picked up was located, very convenient for me. I did get a confirmation letter about where the trailer was to be picked up at. I live 3 hours away and thought that the address was Cohoes U Haul. When I arrived, in the cold rainy weather, the men at Cohoes informed me that no lady works there and that the trailer was 10 miles away in Albany, (Darn lucky I had GPS as I am not familiar with that area.) After arriving at Robinson Ace Hardware, the Albany U Haul location, the clerk was quick and efficient. ( Although, the bill was $20 higher than quoted to me.) I asked the clerk to assist in hooking up the car transport trailer. He and another man did so. (ONE HOUR of TIME was LOST due to the change of location.) On the return to the classic car that we were transporting, we started to load the classic car on the trailer. THE FRONT OF THE TRAILER WENT UP IN THE AIR, OFF the BALL AND (LUCKILY) WAS CAUGHT BY THE CHAINS. On inspection the chains were hooked improperly and the hitch was NOT secured to the ball. Just think what would have happened on the way to get the car if it had come unhooked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now finally on the road, with the trailer securely hooked up, I called Albany ACE Hardware and spoke to the same man that hooked up the trailer and told him what happened, His reply was" I guess I need more training". Then he said he was going to transfer me over to management. I remained on hold for 8 minutes, until I gave up waiting and hung up. I request a refund. Thank you.
