Explain more detail to the customer as to how the "brake controller" mounted on the front of the hitch operates. Its should be explained how to reset that controller in-case it accidently activates during towing manouveres.....especially backing-up.

The truck was awful to drive, it was sluggish and rattled a lot.

I was over charged 100 dollars more than quoted on the phone, and the truck broke down and it cost me my deposit, I won't be using this service again or recommending it to a friend, I might even file a complaint

The truck was not swept when we got it and the drivers side seatbelt was coming apart. The drivers side window crank knob was missing and later found in the console as we were returning the truck. The location is inconvenient to get the truck and return it because the office is 3 blocks away from the truck parking lot.

The location is not well signed. The lot was full and there was no place to park, forcing me to park two lots over. It is a very difficult to find and had to make two runs around the block to figure out which business was the uhaul, then another lap to get parked.

The return location was a storage yard and the agent receiving the trailer I returned did not even check the trailer and did not offer any paperwork or any signature indicating that it was received in good order etc. I called the office asking for a receipt and was promised by the lady I spoke to that she would email my receipt. To this day I have still not received my receipt. Once again the overall experience of dealing with Uhaul was very bad and I was extremely disappointed.

The U-Haul scheduling department booked my pickup at a location 2.5 hours away from the location I had requested. As I had booked several weeks prior in a city of 6 million people I was surprised and disappointed with the call letting me know all my plans needed to be changed less than 24 hours before I was depending on the trailer. Through several calls to various locations and the central booking we eventually arranged something that worked despite a significant additional effort and cost on our part. At this pickup location they were friendly and helpful. To summarize: this location was good and helpful but central booking was horrible.

Just talked to the office on the phone so never met anyone, however the 2 ladies I spoke to were polite and very helpful. I dropped the trailer off after hours and the site was easy to get to and accessible. The followup this morning again was great with me receiving my invoice promptly.

Customer service was great, location is difficult for parking due to its proximity to Terminal Rd. I would recommend to others to use this site.

First of all, we had to drive to a different location to pick up the truck. When we finally arrived to the location, we were told that the guy had forgotten about the dolly that we had previously ordered, and that we had to drive back to the office to pick it up. Also there was not enough parking space at the shop.

Good rental overall, but disappointing that a furniture dolly was reserved in advance but not available on moving day.

The door was hard to get to from out side...piles of used cars for sale. When we returned our Uhaul they guy had charged $100 onto my visa. They lady said there is nothing she could do..she finally refunded my money and was not sure why the guy had done that. When it was just a deposit. Also not having the Uhaul and the rental location is stupid. Won't go back to this location or recomed

The owner is very rude with little to no customer skills. This is my 2nd experience with the same encounter. I will not return to this site.
