Smoothe easy rental. Nice equipment, quick in, quick out and knowledgeable friendly personnel .. A+++


Used this location for supplies and equipment ...3 different types of vehicles over the years....they have always been consistent..


The only issue was having to wait.


Everything was great for me! This was my first time renting a uhaul and so I wasn't to sure how it all worked but the location I used had amazing costumer service!


The staff was friendly, though very slow. Seemed to be understaffed and major computer/tech issues. Needs work.


Take that truck out until it is serviced


Thank you all for the good help


The process was easy. Everything was ready when I got there. I had reserved my truck online. The truck did seem to pull a little to the left at speeds over 60. But not a horrible pull. The rate was good I got the insurance because I got a bigger truck than I usually drive.

Trucks were overbooked and I was pressured to get the truck back by 4pm (I picked up at 945). This gave me a little over 6 hours to complete my move. When I booked it, I indicated an 8-4 rental but also knew the rate was for 24 hours. This was confirmed by the clerk. No discount, no thank you. Just, “I don't know why they alway do this.” And “have it back by 4”. Your overbooking should not be my problem. I will not be using This location again and frankly, am not likely to use U- haul again. Wade steenhoek (515) 418-0365.

Everyone was awesome, but they seemed a bit overworked. Were doing many things at once, but still great


Nothing but problems with my reservation and communication with the customer service women there... More intent to speak to my son instead of me about the issues... Needed to pull a travel trailer behind - upon calling in, stated they had a 2 5/16" ball to put on - they never stated 2" balls were welded on - offset location for other @4", and had to pay @$70 onsite for that! Then no pin to go with hitch, another $4! They lost the keys to the 15ft truck, which ended up being in the woman's jacket pocket! Very disappointed with these women - i have used this location before and no problems EVER - this was a bad taste in my mouth, hopefully never use them again... Was a rip in the drivers seat and the tank was only 1/3 full... dirty inside van body...

Truck was very clean and easy to handle. Price was excellent and will use again. The gentleman that checked us in was very nice and informative. Do always check the gas as ours was not completely full but they did reimburse when we filled back up to over full.

No issues


I am QUITE frustrated that the UHaul location IN INDIANOLA--where I WANTED to return the trailer does not accept drop offs! HOW is that serving the customer??? How do you allow your franchise named to be used, yet they don't accommodate your customer? Why is it MY problem if they have an over abundance of trailers and/or truck rentals? (I don't even know if that is why they wouldn't accept drop offs. I HAD to go another 20+ miles and the extra time to return what should have been a 5 minute trip.

Robert L.

The maintenance guy working there was new but nice and helpful especially when informing that there is no refund for dropping off a few days early.


Not charge people extra mileage when the storage area they rented had a lock on it

Kevin S.

Teach the steps of knowing how to drive a U-haul.


I would take photo of Gas and Mileage. Also ensure you are on Level Ground. And I wish to Thank Dawn at Customer Service for correcting the issue with gas charge. PEACE


I had reserved a 10' truck, but when I arrived they didn't have one. So the rep gave me a 15' at the price of a 10'. I thought that was generous.


The staff were not friendly nor attentive. The store required face masks upon entering yet the two employees working were not wearing face masks. My account was also overcharged and I am still awaiting a response from the store.

I have rented two U-haul trucks in the last 6 months. Both times I requested a regular two-wheel dolly during my online reservation process. Both times when I went to pick up the truck I was told that there were no available dollys. This makes moving boxes and furniture much more difficult. U-haul obviously needs to have more dollys on hand at every pick-up location. This is a vital piece of equipment that needs to be available with every truck.


Originally had a reservation to pick up auto transport from 101 63rd west dsm. Got there was told no equipment available and was made to come back to current location at 630 when one would be available. I live 40 minutes away so was very 😡 with the whole situation!!! Cost me several trips and a full tank of gas!!!! Was told no discount for clearly uhauls mistake!!!! Really put a burden on my day!!! Very dissatisfied as a returning customer!!!!!


I want to make sure you know that the woman that hooked up the trailer was exceptional. She was very polite and made sure the trailer was cleaned out and mopped before left. It was a good experience even though they were busy she took the time to make sure everything was perfect.

Pickup was scheduled for 7am however the day of pickup, no employee was there at this location and it was completely closed until 2 girls that looked like they rolled straight from bed and still drunk opened the store at about 8:20am-8:30 am showed up to open the location and give us keys to start our out of town location. I was to receive a credit due to the mishap and that didn't happen. I'll never refer anyone to that one. Very disappointing and cause an even longer move and more money since i hired helpers to move and they sat and did nothing for over the 1st hour.
