Good job!

William M. on


The cashier's customer service was very poor. Mumbled directions to me and very poor eye contact. Please also educate your staff on using complete sentences and respecting customers (e.g. "May I please have your ID for check in?", rather than "ID"). Customer service is not difficult, but it seems retailers and their employers are unwilling or unable to provide good service. I use UHaul because it's convenient to where I live, but I would use an alternative with better service.

The staff @ the 12th street location was very friendly and helpful. A #1 in my book. I was disappointed in the change made by U-Haul in the confirmed pick-up location @ the time of my reservation. I needed a pick up location near 1424 Fairmont and Broad Street. Only to find that U-Haul could change the pick up location to another part of the City of Philadelphia that was on the other side of the City.

The representative who helped me check out the truck was very rude and had an attitude problem. I was not going to get the equipment I rented, when I brought up the uhaul guarantee, he got angry at me and called me a liar.

Verify truck is road worthy before renting.



Put everything on one lot so that no one has cross a busy street

There were a number of passenger vans in the lot. I do not understand why they were not available.

Worst customer service I have ever experienced from U-HAUL. Vehicle pick-up location CHANGED LAST MINUTE from the originally confirmed location without notification. We just happened to figure this out when WE called the original location en route to pick-up. Hit heavy traffic coming into Philadelphia to pick up U-HAUL. Called location 1+ hours in advance of reservation to inform of the delay and confirm reservation and a new pick-up time. Within 10 minutes of arrival at pick-up location, we received 2 calls within minutes of one another from the same location confirming we were still picking up. New pick-up location representative was dishonest about store hours and final pick-up time. Representative expressed to us over the phone that the location closed at 8 PM when actual closing time was 10 PM. Representative was further manipulative during point of sales transaction, charging us more than the quoted price for half of the time we originally reserved. This forced us to move our belongings THROUGH THE NIGHT and return the vehicle first thing in the morning the next day. Normally I would have walked out of the store, but we had no choice and the representative took full advantage of that. These issues are not exclusive to this specific location, either. Philadelphia area U-HAUL network is VERY poorly run -- dysfunctional w/ blatant disregard for customer experience. Management's primary concern is vehicle turnover, to the detriment and at the expense of the customer. Buyer beware: reservation confirmations, both written and verbal, mean little to nothing. DO NOT expect Philadelphia area U-HAUL locations to honor your vehicle reservation.

Everything worked out fine in the end, but when I showed up I was told there was no truck available, and that my reservation would be cut short by 4 hours. I had reserved the truck 2 months early to make sure I avoided any conflicts, so this was an unpleasant surprise. I had to apply a lot of pressure to get Uhaul to honor my original reservation, but the staff member eventually helped me out.

Second time using the facility to drop off truck. The person who greeted me this time was friendly, courtesy, professional, and informative. He took the time to explain everything in detail about how the drop off process worked and went over my bill. I have used Uhaul for years and never came across a person who actually had a smile on their face when you pull up to drop off a truck and actually looked happy to be at work. That person's customer service skills went beyond what was expected from what I've experienced in the past. It was truely the best experience I've ever had using Uhaul. Usually, it's like you're being rushed and once you hand over the keys all you will here is , "you will get an email explaining your charges". Even though, I've used Uhaul for years it's nice to know someone will still take the time to go over your bill. He gets a five stars!!!

Great staff, very helpful. I am a frequent customer.

Kim S. on


Excellent customer service!!!!

Sadie B. on


The truck was waiting for us when we arrived. The on line site to reserve the truck was easy to use. The process when we arrived to pick up the truck was a breeze and all the customer service employees were very friendly.

One month before, we reserved a 10 foot truck. Two days before, we received a call asking if we would take a 15 foot truck - I said we wanted the 10 foot truck and that a 15 foot truck would be too cumbersome for us. When we picked up our truck, we were still given a 15 foot truck. It made moving more difficult in the city, it did not fit the parking spaces we had reserved, and was more expensive in tolls.

Louise S. on


Ivan was very accomodating and professional. He saved me some money by downsizing the size of the truck. He was finished ahead of schedule. I will use this service again. Very satisfied.



To get straight to the point, it was exactly what was required. We were taken care of quickly and treated very well. This was an extremely cost effective means of handling our needs. As a fellow business owner that understands how critical successful customer interaction truly is, I can say that this is the only UHAUL facility in use because I know what I will receive every time.

Continue keeping your employees happily. All the employees with whom I interacted were so nice and friendly at this location (S. 12th St, Philadelphia, PA). A friendly environment is what will always attract me to a business.
