Customer Reviews

Carrie L.

The employees were very helpful for pick up and drop off times.

loren S.

The service and availability of rentals has been and continues to be fantastic. The greatest hindrance is the location. It can be difficult to access and the property is tight and difficult to maneuver in.

Bill D.

Great employees.

Vyla E.

The man that was working was extremely rude and short. Never thanked me, didn't walk me to the rental just pointed to it, and when I returned he got mad at me because I came in with my keys rather than just leaving them in the truck. Will rent form uhaul again but not this location


Appliance dolly and furniture dolly not available. I ended up purchasing a dolly from inside the store, very bad quality and the handle kept coming apart. After hours check did not work from my mobile device.

Kim S.

Signed up for 24/7 pick up, get to the location 2 hrs before pick-up and even though my online account/check-in said “reminder you signed up for 24/7 online pick-up...” but then when I would click on it, it said I didn't sign up for it and had to wait until the location opened? Which didn't make sense because I wouldn't have selected 7am pick-up if I couldn't pick up online because the place didn't open until 9am? Then when I called the general phone line, I had to wait 45 mins just to get someone on the phone, and the lady was incredibly rude, couldn't help at all and just indirectly blamed me, then transferred my call which got disconnected. Thankfully an employee at the store showed up an hour before opening time and assisted us, after already sitting there for over an hour, but the truck we rented wasn't ready/clean, and it wa buried in the back. I will NEVER use uhaul again and will make sure to spread the word, awful, awful experience. One of the worst customer service experiences of my life with the cal in process.

Travis L.

Your online sign in process and bar scanning is horrendous. The need to get my phones location when I return the vehicle is unecessary. When my phone didnt give the location I was in even after allowing the location to be picked up I wasnt given any other options to proceed. I was stuck waiting for customer care on the phone for 30 minutes before I got ahold of someone that could finish the process.


There is no place to park. Very small lot.


Truck needed a front end alignment. The whole check in process is crap. We are not to do the job of UHaul employees. Also there was a worker there past closing time.. there were a couple people out in the parking lot and he just walked out and went straight to his car without asking the customer if any help is needed. This may be my last time renting with U-Haul.


Small parking lot need to expand space


The person I dropped off the truck with was very friendly and helpful.

Sarah B.

Thank you to the young man who helped me when I was struggling with the on line pick up and who started up the van and got it defrosting for me!

Ray P.

Janise B.

The guy who helped me was amazing! He was very personable and friendly. He is the reason I'll be back!

Robert S.

Great service

Aundrea K.

I have a dispute with my bill and have received no reply to rectify the problem.


Had trouble using app but was returned on time


The gentleman that helped us had an unruly customer just before us and he dealt with that person very well considering that customer was demanding and inconsiderate. The employee kept his cool, helped us very nicely and resolved the other customers problem (which was the customers fault not the employees/shops). We will definitely be back!


I've had several experiences with U-Haul over the years, including this particular location in Urbandale, IA. This was the best experience in working with U-Haul I've ever had. The equipment was on-site, on time, and in perfect working order. The staff were knowledgeable and professional. My past experiences with U-Haul left me vowing to never come back; however, this experience was everything I expected. Nicely done.

Joseph H.

The check in and out process was so easy. Great experience.

William N.

Staff efficient, courteous, and helpful. Good job!

Jack A.

Staff did a great job!!!!!!

Lawrence J.

Larger lot, parking is terrible and entering and exiting difficult. The manager is very helpful and a very hard worker to make a move less stressful.

Mark G.

The manager checked me out, he was great. The woman that checked me in was nothing less than a total bitch. I parked in front due to a pick-up with a trailer in the driveway, this location is small & access is limited. The woman that checked me said I had to park the truck in the lot, I advised of the truck & trailer in the drive, she acted pissed off, took the key & stormed outside. I mentioned to another customer who was waiting she's probably more experienced with this locations small lot. When she returned she was talking to the customer I just spoke to, and in a loud voice was saying "there was all kinds of room in the drive", I said to her you are more familiar with this location than I- she said in a nasty, disrespectful tone, "Sir that conversation wasn't meant for you!" , so why the hell did she say within ear shot of me ? This person needs a day off without pay to reflect on her lousy customer skills, and some additional customer service training! I will NEVER return to this location ever, nor will I recommend it to anyone. I have never been treated so rudely in my life, there is no excuse to ever treat a customer in this manner.

Georgette F.

I brought it back a day early, never got an email with my receipt. I called to get one and turned out to be mass confusion. Then got a call later wanting to know why I had not brought the truck back? Still got charged for 2 days and now got a charge for $39. Most messed up place ever and not sure when I will ever get a refund. Paid $142 for less than a 1 day rental. Ridiculous and I shouldn't have to go thru so much just to get my money back.
