Customer Reviews

Caitlin L.

Clerk that helped me was incredible rude and unhelpful.

Jennifer S.

We have rented from this location on multiple occasions and absolutely love the staff. Everyone is so helpful and genuinely kind.

Terry S.

The two fellows I worked with were super helpful and friendly. Great to do business with, would use you guys again.

William B.

My complaint is nothing to do with location or management- both were sufficient for my needs. My issue was in regards to the license of the u-haul- which had expired... in October of 2019. Happy to provide pictures but this was disappointing as it was not noticed until after I was on the road. Is this standard to have plates with long expired tags? Had the police pulled us over this would have been unnecessary hassle.

Tenelle W.

It was great, I only had a problem with booking but the experience with the truck was great.

Edward L.

It was a great experience.

John L.

Quick, easy and economical. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They seemed to be really enjoying working there as well. Great job Urbandale U-Haul!

jeff N.

Friendly helpful staff. The parking lot area was a little difficult to get in and out of. Also, limited parking.

Randy A.

The truck was ready to go and we were able to get the move done in a short time. Thank you.

John M.

We have used this location several times and they are the best to work with. Always interested in giving the customer a good experience.

Location forgot to give me a dolly, so I picked up a new one when I had a chance to go back over to the rental site. I ended up not only getting billed for all four days for the missing dolly (should have been billed for 2 days for the 2 days I had the replacement), but for another four days for the replacement dolly. Messages left on the website have gone unanswered.

Location was fine. Dropped off after hours. It is interesting how you decide to charge customers for having less gas than they started with, but have no problem stealing 20 gallons from another customer when it is over the original amount.

Cathy O.

Excellent help and knowledgeable, friendly staff. Thanks.

Matthew P.

I was not told I needed to do the return at checklist before locking the truck and placing the keys in the return box. once the truck was locked and the keys were gone I went to the app and it told me to take pictures of the inside of the truck since I could not I was charged an extra bogus fee.

Erin R.

When I went to check in via my phone as recommended by your company, my reservation had be switched to a cargo van. The lady working the desk was super busy & running around like crazy. Never-the-less she greeted me with a huge smile & was so warm & welcoming. She fixed my reservation & got me out quickly in the reserved vehicle. On drop off, again, she was moving trucks & running around. She was cheerful & pleasant & checked me in & out super fast. She made the experience! I wish I would've caught her name!

Bruceallen B.

Very friendly staff & efficient drop off! Will use again!!!

First I had a reservation at the E14th location and when I arrived they didn’t have a truck and said that I didn’t have a reservation. The only place that had a truck the size I needed to as this location. Your staff was extremely friendly and helpful during the rental process. Once I got on the road I realized the mileage was off from what the paper work said. We drove from this location to Indianola and to a storage unit 1.5 miles away and back. Should’ve only been 55 miles total. They said it was like 83. Not possible. I said something to the staff and they were going to look into it and email me a final bill. They didn’t look into it at all. I was emailed my bill before I left the parking lot. I was overcharged. We move stuff for our museum frequently and we’ll be using another rental company.

Denise H.

The customer service was amazing. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. Best uhaul experience I have ever had and I’ve never had a bad one.

Kent B.

There was only 7/8 tank full. I brought it back dull. I should get a credit for an 1/8 tank fuel. I have a photo to support this.

Denise P.

Fast and efficient.

David S.

Very easy to rent at this location. Everyone is very helpful.

Alexander F.

Location was great, truck was as expected. But online check-in process is horrible and I would never do it again. Will only use counter check ins or other companies in the future.

Joshua M.

The manager at the Douglas Avenue store where I picked up the trailer at was the best part of the entire experience. His customer service is amazing. Patient and professional. He is definitely an asset to your company!!!

Paula L.

The check engine light was on. Other than that it was clean and ran well.
