When sending someone 40 mins north of their requested pick up location and that customer has prepaid to ensure a quick collection it would be good it that collection didn't take another 40mins. Additionally, if the radio worked in the rental that would also have been nice.

DO NOT go to this location, under ANY circumstances. It was the worst service experience I have EVER had in my life. I called to report the unprofessional and reprehensible conduct of the representative. After making me wait 30 minutes before he figured out how to log in to the computer, he charged me for equipment he did not know he had. He then refused to give me a refund for it, and tried to send me to another location to get the equipment (the other location then said they would have to also charge me). He gave me a fake number to the location, told me he "didn't have time" for me, ignored me, and flat-out lied about the policies. He even got into an argument with the rep from the other location after they said they couldn't give me the equipment without charge. When I asked for a complete refund so I could get everything elsewhere, he said he had initially been willing, but because I was difficult he wouldn't help me anymore. I asked if he makes a practice of charging for equipment he doesn't have, and he responded that he "didn't care to check first" for me specifically, and that U-Haul regularly sends reservation confirmation/"equipment guaranteed" emails even though it isn't guaranteed. Overall, I waited over two hours, and had to figure out a solution on my own. He was aggressive, rude and the thought of his behavior appalls me to this day. It was my first experience with U-Haul and I'm afraid I won't be using it again and recommending against it if this man isn't reprimanded.

Pretty sure they charged me extra for gas despite a full tank.

They couldn't find my reservation. They had half as many blankets as was requested and did NOT update my contract to show that. They made me ask for help moving vehicles so I could get my truck. Poorly run. Poor service. Would not use.

Derek V. on


Absolute disaster checking in and checking out. Nobody spoke English, had to wait endlessly for someone to help me and the gas station people seemed to care less about it. You should not have those people rep your brand if you want to have happy customers.

William H. on


Battery died after one trip and when I called the location I rented from they yelled something and hung up on me 3 times.

Gregory L. on


The location was changed at the last minute and did not have supplies available and some of the items requested online were not in the truck. The staff was not very organized, but the pick up location itself was great for city dwellers.

Need to have Furniture and Appliance dollys at this location, When I ask they didn't have none.

Arlene D. on


Customer service at the 117th street and 1st Avenue location is horrible. The staff is rude and very unfriendly.

Francis V. on


The people were fine. But any time someone came in for lotto or gas the guy would stop and tend to them making me wait. The location is difficult for big vehicles, once I was finally in the van I then had to wait for other cars that were parked in front of it to move. Same deal when dropping off. Next time I'll go to a formal Uhaul location.

Graciano E M. on


The staff was nice but said they had no training at all in the new system. My reservation was delayed by almost an hour. Bad website.

Ryan B. on


Very stressful pickup location. Was yelled at and told to come back in the morning then was given keys to a truck without them checking the mileage and gas gauge which made me unsure of how much gas to return it with etc. In addition the reservation process was very unclear about the 'preferred' pickup location. If I had known they were going to switch my pickup from Chelsea to east Harlem I would have made other arrangements because picking up in east Harlem made the entire process so much more difficult and time consuming

absolutely terrible experience. I literally had to push a car out of the way to get my rental truck (at the attendant's instruction). the truck was a mess and had more damage then was indicated. attendant was not willing to list the damage. the truck's paperwork also listed that it had more fuel then it was supposed to have. when I went to return the truck, I was told that they do not take returns. I had to take the truck to a different locations (and pay for additional mileage). the place I returned the truck to said they do not take returns for local trucks and that I would have to pay a fee as I was not returning to the original location. The original location would not take the return!! absolutely terrible experience - I should be refunded.

Please have vehicle clean it was very dirty inside and outside.

Stephanie M. on


Cons: Representative's attitude was terrible. Did not include dolly as requested. Pros: Double checked booking information and identity. Convenience of this pick up location and time.

Sam V. on


They were very busy. The owner of the store was helpful but the other clerks were not. It took 10 minutes for the clerk to get the manager. Once i was dealing with him everything was fine.

Richard K. on


When you are supposed to return your vehicle they should accept it, not deny your return because they are lazy. This place was horrible

Alexis W. on


This location did not have the Application Dolly that I had reserved, and the man who rented me the UHaul did not offer to refund me the money.
