Truck and trailer were not ready, waited 2 hours due to a employee not knowing their password. Once I finally got the truck I was half way to the back to my mothers house and realized they never put the dolly In the truck. Also half way through Kansas the bugs started getting bad, no washer fluid, garbage under seats. Lastly, went to drop the truck and trailer and the employee told me I went 18 over the amount alotted. I wad never told there was a mile limit. Why would u rent say u have the truck for 5 days, but not be clear there is only a certain amount of miles.

U haul uses unethical business practices. From now on I will be using budget for my pickup rentals. Sorry you decided you don't need my business. I've rented many times but won't be back

Passenger door handle broke had to crawl through driver side to open door. When it was time to return truck it wouldn't allow me to return the truck through the 24/7 share, kept saying share location. I called customer service, I was on hold for about 45 minutes. After being the Uhaul location for almost a hour trying to return the truck. I finally put the keys in the drop box and left. After a hour and half uhaul finally answer, they told me to call back in morning. I called back first thing in the morning i was transfered to 3 different locations. I was told that they would call back. No call back. I was charged $20 extra for not being able to log on to the 24/7 share

Make sure the tank is filled before it's rented out. We started out with 1/8 a tank so we had to put gas in before we could even get out of town

Jerry N. on


Can't think of anything was fast pickup and drop off

Todd O. on


I didn't appreciate receiving a phone call about not returning my unit when I had returned it 5 hours previous and 4 hours before it was due back.. Not sure what that was about, but it was resolved

Jonathan M. on


Brian who handled our process of checking out a trailer was very nice and did a quick job for us to get going on our way. When I returned the trailer later the lady who checked me back in was also very courteous and efficient in checking back in the trailer. Overall I’m very haply with the people we interacted with and will be back when needed.

Darrel B. on


Make sure they know to take pictures before locking up truck

Terry C. on


when returning rental unit, main employee didnt say anything when I entered. Employee was messing with the computer then just turned around and walked into the back of the building, no acknowledgement that I was even there. After about 5 minutes, finally another employee walked in and helped me. Also, there was no paperwork. The store had run out of forms, how can that ever happen?

Michael F. on


The truck was a typical “old” U- Haul truck the shook at a speed of 60 miles an hour.

Kyle H. on


We were sent a link via text to check the truck in. I followed the link & completed it. I was charged $20 for supposedly not checking in the truck. I contacted the location on Hubbell Avenue in Des Moines Iowa, but they haven’t refunded the $20. If the money isn’t isn’t returned I will take legal action. This is a scam! Please refund my $20!

The mobile drop-off was concerning for me. The app needs to be improved, I had difficulty with it, and I just didn't listen well to my rental guy when he told me what to do if I came back after hours.

deborah B. on


Great, knowledgeable and professional staff!

Equipment broke down. Roadside Assistance directed me to a separate location after a service tech wasn’t available to inspect the truck. I advised Roadside Assistance that we would not be able to re-fuel the truck. Called again Monday the 12th was reassured notes on the reservation about fueling and today I receive an updated bill charging me for fuel! Poor customer service, can not reach the location at all...won’t be going back.
