They gave me an over height van when I asked for a regular height. Messed up my ferry reservations!



The service provided was very good, but the building was very run down and doesn't give a very good impression. Also, when I booked it, I was told that they would provide boxes upon arrival. When I called to verify this the day before my booking, I was told that they had very little stock and few boxes were available because they changed service providers. This was very upsetting because I had to search around at the last minute for the boxes that they said would be available at their store. No effort was made to let me know, so if I had not called to confirm, I would have shown up and gotten no boxes to do my packing. I had to go to a different location for the boxes. This other location was much tidier and well stocked, so I'd go there and recommend my friends to go there instead of to this one.

I had my girlfriend with me and the customer service agent seemed to want to pick a fight with her over everything. It was bizarre.

Connor H. on


Nothing. The initial U-haul peraon that took my reservation spelt my name and email address wrong. Practicar called and got the correct email so i have accurate info.



Steve and CorrinA were vet helpful and would recommend to my friends and family!

Incorrect vehicle provided. Slow service. Delay at offsite lot. Moving equipment left in the back of U-Haul was not secured.



Excellent service, great vehicle, fair price - no problems. Nanaimo Practicar is totally professional.

Advertising is very misleading. A $20 truck hire turned into a $100 cost. The cents per km was in very small print. While we noticed beforehand, others recommending the service did not. Then there was a $15 insurance fee which was not mentioned on the phone or in print. It would be cheaper to hire two guys and a van locally so that is what we will do next time. Also at another pick up site, we called to book a truck and were told even if we book and pay a deposit, there would be no guarantee we would get the size truck we wanted and would have to pay for a larger one. The woman couldn't understand why that was ridiculous. We won't be using u-haul again.

Have the proper truck I wanted to rent You gave me the wrong truck and it cost me more than I expected on the ferry $100 charge more dew to being over sized I ordered a 17’ Truck witch I New would not have cost me as commercial vehicle The one you gave me was 20’ with a gvw 14,500 Not happy about this I’m not happy about bringing you USA truck back over to the mainland becouse you need it here I wanted the 17’

Trailer brakes were not operational. Causing truck brakes to over heat. Touching the drums on the trailer reviled they were stone cold after a long decent once it was realized the trucks brakes were over heating... Required stopping on the highway and waiting for brakes to cool...

Everyone was super friendly and helpful!

Make all of your u haul establishments as nice as the one on terminal. The customer service was fantastic.



The agents were very rude. Had no sense of how to treat customers. I will not recommend this location to anyone.i had a very bad experience.

Robert B. on


It is hard to find and the parking lot is jam-packed ( many Canadians moving West) with big Uhauls. But someone did come quickly from the office on Terminal Ave, parked the truck properly, wasted no time on the checkout, and gave me a ride to the ferry. Gas filling policy is annoying. Vehicles should be rented and returned with a full tank. UHaul may make a few bucks from customers overfilling to avoid hassles, but the loss of trust is greater.

The office is in a hard to get to location and there is not adequate parking



had to sweep the trailer out before use not impressed

scott s. on


But we wouldn't recommentd uhal due to centralized booking system that has clients drive way out of therir way to pick up equipment and also leaves some clients without any equipment at the last minute

The lady I believe her name was Tina was very helpful she helped us change our original booking day to the night before so we could pick it up earlier than we were late getting there and she was very patient waiting for us. Great service. .



The front end of the truck we rented was falling apart. It was very difficult to drive and keep on the road. the truck had zero power and we had had to do approx 40 km/h over the malahat with our four way flashers on. I will not rent here again



Great service

Barry S. on


Office space shares location with garage and dealership which limits customer parking. Vehicle pick up is located in different lot complicating pick up and drop off coordination. On the plus side this lowers overhead costs and helps give us the best competitive rate in Nanaimo. Very friendly and professional and courteous staff . Quick and convenient service apart from shuttle between office and lot.

Dan D. on


Superb service. They went out of their way to accommodate my needs. No improvement needed.
