Only one person at the counter when I picked up and no one at the return lane and the lane was backed up so bad there was nowhere to park when I returned the truck. I did like the online scheduling. The people was very friendly and knowledgeable. A lot of thank you's, pleases and so sorry about the wait.

The right brake light on the trailer was very faint. It needs repair. Otherwise, the customer services was second to none on both ends.

There was a ton of preexisting damage on the truck to the point I was afraid I may get accused of causing some of it. That has yet to occur at this point. Overall good experience.

This is the second time this year I have rented a trailor from this location, both times it has been an excellent experience for me, everyone there deserves a raise and an all expenses paid vacation. They are wonderful!

Remove the parking space blockers. Since they were there someone parked right in front of the store trapping us in & they are to low to see from inside a car & not try to maneuver through the open space when blocked in

Location was OK - not much space for vehicles, trailers, and customers. I am surprised and disappointed that I was arbitrarily assigned a turn-in time at the drop-off location - and that I would be assessed a fee for not turning in at that time. This was never explained. Poor business. I dropped off before the location closed on the turn in day. $29.00 for two hours late is excessive - especially since I was never told there would be a late fee.

This location is usually hit or miss. The guys were great this time! My truck was ready and waiting for me when I got there. The guy who checked me back in was helpful and honest

There was a pretty long wait to get my equipment. Add help would be my only suggestion. The people who helped me were great even though they were probably stressed by the amount of work they needed to do to get us all taken care of.

I felt so sorry for the U-Haul employee. He was there alone with line of customers and shitty computer problem and no support. I rented a truck from the Westside location, but they had it available only on the other side of town. My confirmation said Westside store, but they say "no guarantee on pick up location" - what a bunch of BS... no email or call to let me know. The employee was great and took care of me, but I'll never rent from U-Haul again... shit policies, understaffed, long waits, and don't care for their employees.

The person checking in vehicles was rude and didn't even say hello. I understand they were busy, but at least try to treat customers like people.

I don't understand why I was charged $8.75 to use a credit card. Had I known this I would have paid in cash Not pleased with the 8.75

Our son called the Corraville, IA U-Haul and made arrangements for a pick up on Sat. May 20 and received a confirmation number. When they called us on Thur May 18th, the lady said we could not get one there. This changed our plans and made it very inconvenient for us. We were told there would be a $50.00 refund on our credit card, has this been done?

Less (ideally no) profanity used by employees, better organization (keys all over the counter, unsure what trucks were in use or where they were, employees had to keep leaving to find trucks), personal conversations between employees and between employees and friends seemed to take more priority over actually getting the task at hand done.

I booked the equipment at a different U-Haul, closer to my residence, but had to pick up at this location, an additional hr. round trip.

Pick up and drop off procedure was a breeze and quick. I did the online rental. Uhaul representatives were extremely friendly and helpful.

It was a new vehicle with about 2,000 miles on it. Something had happened to it previously and the front wheels were out of alignment. The steering wheel was off center and the vehicle wandered a lot at higher speeds. It required constant correction on the highway that made the 375 mile trip very stressful.
