This was the worst rental experience I have ever had. I paid to have a trailer hitch expedited to arrive on Tuesday, August 14. When I showed up for my appointment, I was told that the hitch had not been ordered. I have still not been reimbursed for the expediting fee. An employee said he would overnight a trailer hitch to be ready for installation on Wednesday, August 15. This hitch arrived, but it was not the right hitch for my vehicle. My move was already two days behind schedule, I had nowhere to stay, and so I agreed to whatever I could to get out that day. I was rented a truck and a vehicle trailer. I ended up spending about twice as much on gasoline as I would have pulling a small trailer with my vehicle. When I arrived in Madison, Tennessee (where the employees were knowledgeable and helpful), and dropped off the equipment, I was informed that I had not been outfitted with the required wiring, my vehicle had not been strapped in properly, and my vehicle had not been chained to the trailer at all (the chain was simply hanging there from the trailer). The negligence of the employees at this location put my life and property in danger. It put thousands of other motorists' lives and property in danger. It is unacceptable.

Long waits. Can reaked of cigarette smoke; when we turned on the AC it was extra bad. Left the van back at the rental location in clean condition and was charged a $25 “cleaning fee” thst was not explained. I called the office and was told I must contact corporate. I called corporate but after being on hold for 10-20 minutes I gave up. I find this practice reprehensible and would likely not use your service again unless something was fixed.

Having workers that are more professional and work in a timely manner. I arrived at 4:50 for my 5pm van rental and didn’t get the keys until 5:15 with multiple workers in the store who didn’t ask if they could help me. But, the truck I rented was clean and everything worked well.

Cynthia was a great help in assisting me after my disappointment with the previous location (4101 SW 13th St Gainesville, FL 32608). It seems that the original location I had reserved my tow dolly with special hours in conflict with the website and no one was there to assist me when I showed up at my appointment time. Cynthia (at 802 N Main st) was able to move the previous reservation and provide me the dolly I needed to continue on my way. Thanks Cynthia :)

The check in process was far too long and inefficient, especially considering I had booked and provided all relevant information online. It took almost an hour to check out the truck.

William V. on


Quick return, no issues, friendly staff

Jessica M. on


Cashier was very pleasant but truck didn't have the pads I ordered. I had to go back for them.

Matthew F. on


It took two hours before I was able to talk to a representative.

The drop off location was extremely crowded and appeared to be understaffed. Too many vehicles awaiting processing. Only advantage was it was close to the final destination so it was fairly convenient.

alex c. on


I asked about the price difference and if I could get credit for the extra gas I paid for which is 1/4 tank over the required. The attendant was very short, and said I would have to call the manager the next day. This could be because I arrived right before their closing time (8PM), but still I couldn't say I received good customer service.

Lorenzo D. on


I the customer prepaid for the truck. I hired Mr. Davis to move my family. I was told by c/s to go to your location at 250 S.E 10 ave Gainesville Fl. I waited from 8am until 10:30 am no truck, no one showed up. I called reservation. I spoke to c/s who wanted to reserve and make new reservations at A much higher price than I was originally quoted. I ask her why was I being charged more when it wasn’t my fault that the location I was given by reservation rep. was an abandoned building. I arrived at 8 am and waited for the uhaul truck to get here. She said there was nothing she could do. I ask for a supervisor. I was put on hold to only be hung up on. I called customer service very professional and spoke with supervisor whom reserved me A truck at 802 N. Maine st Gainesville Fl. I made my payment with her. Mr.Davis arrives at uhaul only to be told that he can’t pick up truck due to non payment. I had to call several time final got to another professional Ms. Jamie who was capable of sending me a copy of payment through email. I went back to uhaul on North Main Street only to be told the truck hadn’t been paid for. He showed her proof of payment and than it also was sent over by Ms. Jamie. I pick up truck approximately 3 pm to start moving. Original truck pick up was 8 am. Please review tapes.

After I drove the truck a few miles, the check engine light came on. I called the number and then took it back to the place I got it which was only a few miles away. An employee came out and checked it but was vague and couldn't explain why the light came on if there was nothing wrong. They said to drive the truck and it would be fine. The check engine light came back on after I stopped the truck and remained on the rest of the trip. The truck functioned fine but it continued to worry me. Would have been nice to get a more complete answer about what was happening or at least have gotten a different truck.

Customer service rep told me that I could drop the vehicle at any of 3 locations near my house. When I went to one of the locations they told me I could not drop it off there. They sent me to another location 30 minutes away. It was very inconvenient for me. Will not rent with Uhaul again

Your doing a great job! Customer service was very good!

Alexis B. on


The process was a bit slow, but I think that has as much to do with the busy time of year as with the staff and service.

Have option to edit moving hours on reservation if need less hours.

A previous customer left a frame with loose glass behind the passenger seat. Since this cut one passenger's hand, I would recommend checking the cab as well as the cargo space for articles l left behind.

Timothy G. on


Great experience! Very helpful and everything worked perfectly

The only comment we would make is about the return process. We rented a 5X8 covered trailer in Tampa and we were told we could drop it off at ANY UHaul location in Gainesville. Three locations later in Gainesville we finally were able to drop the trailer off at the Main Street location. And the location where your online service told us to go off 13th, the staff refused the drop off because they said they had been cited for UHauls on the grass. They made NO accommodation to assist us rather than tell us to go to the other side of town with the Uhaul after we clearly advised this was the drop off location your website directed us to. A company your size needs to be more diligent about issues with locations and updating your website so that your customers are not inconvenienced.

Eric G. on


Drop off location had horrible customer service. I was told that they couldn't accept the trailer and had to drive across town to another location. Your logistics problems should not be your customers problems. I am not your inventory relocation service. I will be disputing my credit card charges as no concession was made for me to be your delivery service.

They had just switched to new management, and the woman we worked with was much more clear when explaining the details of renting and the costs.

It was all ok

Shaun Davidson was AWESOME. We delivered a truck and tow from Denver, CO end of July/beginning of Aug 2018 and Shaun was hands-down an excellent manager. He accommodated some unusual requests and was so polite and respectful. He definitely made me feel welcome in Gainesville, FL and was really helpful with both returning the tow one day, and then the truck a week later... he was even able to advise on storage. Definitely recommend work with Shaun at 802 N Main St in Gainesville, FL.
