Don’t understand why I was charged for two days when I was able to rent the truck online for Sunday, but the location for pick up and return was closed on sunday.

John @ Empire Auto in Canton is excellent. Even though I changed dates and times several times, he was on the ball. He called me to confirm and when I arrived the trucks and supplies were ready to go. I highly recommend this U-Haul spot. John is professional, courteous, fast and friendly.

I reserved this truck online on the U-Haul website. I spoke with John at the rental location several days ahead of time. I explained I wanted to pick up the truck right at their opening time of 9 AM. John said this would not be a problem and stated it should only take about 10 minutes for me to be in and out assuming no one was in line ahead of me. I arrived at the rental location just before 9 AM. The shop was closed, and John did not arrive until 9:12 AM to open up. I waited patiently while John took some time to open up. He finally helped me with my rental at about 9:20 AM. The truck was in good shape, but they did not have enough furniture blankets. I reserved 48 furniture blankets, but they only had 26 on hand. John did take $20 off the cost of the rental to compensate for the shortage of furniture blankets. I was finished with the paperwork and left the rental location at about 9:35 AM.

Very unprofessional treated me like I was an inconvenience to him then made a comment to my brother that I didn’t know what I was doing when I was trying to back the truck up to the trailer. Well if I had of had someone with some common sense directing which he apparently didn’t have any of it wouldn’t have been a problem. I Will not rent from this nor any other Uhaul location again if this is how their allowed to treat Uhaul customers. He better be glad he made the comment to my brother and not me and my brother didn’t tell me until I was already a few miles away from there or we would’ve had words and I’d have told him where he could stick that trailer. If Uhaul’s goal is to push customers away then great job guys letting this jerk have a dealership.

The fellas running the place are thoughtful, thorough, and professional, but the 6x12 trailer we rented had a bad back and forth sway to it, even when unloaded. It was a terrifying experience pulling that trailer not knowing if we could keep it in it's lane when passing. I highly recommend uhaul take a look at better ways to inform rental locations on hidden issues that cause sway, like what we experienced during my recent rental experience. Trailer swayed when unloaded or loaded.



Dropoff accepted at the location even though I made a mistake and had not checked email for further instructions. The site checked in the truck when open on next business day. Customer service was helpful when I called in that keys had been dropped in key drop and I couldn’t take take to other location.

Empire went above and beyond. Nice guy.

david k. on


Super nice guy, will go there again.

Wesley B. on


It would be nice if the app would allow you to upload your photo/driver's license and info before you arrive at the location.

ann b. on


Empire is very easy to find, lots of room to maneuver the truck and trailer for people like me who do not drive big trucks. The inspection of the truck was smooth and we were on our way in a timely manner. Also, the gentleman was very nice at our check in.

Dragosh N. on


This location was great, but it was the third I was sent to due to the screwed up online uhaul system. I've used uhaul for every move in the past, but will never be using it again, as there are far better options nowadays. Thanks for wasting 5 hours of my life.

John T. on
