UNBELIEVABLE. I made a reservation on JUNE 9TH for a 20' truck for this weekend (7/30-7/31), and I got a call on Monday 7/25, aka ALMOST @ MONTHS LATER, saying that they couldn't honor that reservation. I then talked to a guy who *guaranteed* me a 20' truck reservation for Sunday 7/31 from 9am-after closing. An hour or so later, I got another call from this location saying that my NEW reservation was no longer good. When I told the woman I was speaking to that the man I had talked to earlier had *guaranteed* that reservation, she replied that no men worked there, and that I must have been talking to someone in the central scheduling department, and that those people "don't have access to the store's schedule/the schedules change very quickly all the time". WHAT?! Why even have a scheduling department then??? This business is ridiculous. So I (foolishly) made a new reservation with her, which she called back 10 minutes later to say that her manager told her that 3rd reservation was no good. LITERALLY WTF. She put me on hold to check on the availability of 17' trucks, and then a few minutes later a DIFFERENT woman got on the phone and said "Hello this is Uhaul can I help you?" grrrr I told her that I'd been talking to Tanyetta and that she was checking on the availability of 17' trucks, and this new woman told me that Tanyetta was with a customer now, so I should talk to her. GRRRR. And each time I talked to someone they pointed out "well, it's the end of the month so things are really busy/booked up" YEAH THAT'S WHY I MADE A RESERVATION 6 WEEKS AGO. I ended up so frustrated at all this nonsense that I (finally) said forget it! WORST BUSINESS EVER

I could not drop off the truck at the original downtown location I had chosen because it was an active crime scene. No employees were out on the street directing people what to do with their trucks, so it was mayhem. There was nowhere to park the truck so we had to go to the south philadelphia location instead.

Confusing as to parking poor signage Advertised as $25. Fees ridiculously high. Gas ridiculously high. Cost me $70 for 4 hours and 10 miles.

Two weeks ago I rented a 15'truck from U-Haul in Rockville, MD. The customer service was excellent; the young man at the counter actually accompanied me to the truck to make certain all was in order. In the Philadelphia office clerks were hidden by boxes that obscured their presence. The young man was polite, well spoken, and efficient, however, the cargo van he called up, though clean, was flashing warnings that the oil was due for a change. I discovered this after I had driven away from the office; so I had to return and be given a replacement. The frustration of lost time was clearly avoidable. Had the person who brought the van out of line been alert to the warning on the dashboard or had the clerk went out to check the van himself, (as was done in Rockville) time and effort and reputation would not have been compromised.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well I was treated. I've dealt with U-Haul over the years (the last time was many years ago though) and my previous experiences were not that good. The personnel was extremely helpful, polite, and amicable.

I reserved the truck for 12 hours and received a confirmation number. I also completed the express check-in to speed up the process and received confirmation again of my rental duration. As it turned out, my confirmation was not honored and I was made to return the truck sooner which was difficult for me. I had to resort to using a second vehicle to compensate for the lack of being able to use the truck for a second trip. Some of the employees were impatient and rude when I tried to explain my circumstances. Poor customer service.

GREAT customer service from the people who checked out the truck and the people who took the truck back at the end of the day!!!

My van stalled in the middle of the city AND on a major highway off-ramp. Literally, the engine just cut out on me. Not once, but twice! I'm not sure why U-haul is providing faulty vans to its customers. Luckily, I let the engine cool off for five minutes (in the middle of the street!), and the engine turned on and I was able to finish my job.

Signage needs improving - it was not clear where to drive in to return the truck. Once I found someone, I was helped by a very friendly employee who took care of the return very efficiently.

Please find out who the gentleman was at the cash register that waited on me. He was extremely helpful, polite, and very informative . His customer service skills were excellent. One of the main reasons why the visit was pleasurable in spite of the long line.

The side view mirrors should be checked for stability because mine fell off when I hit a bump on the highway. The previous renter likely hit the mirror on something and did not report it to UHaul.

I was charged for 40 miles when I did not travel more than 3 miles. I brought this up, was told that I should have kept documentation. The manager, Andrew Curry, seemed pleased when I brought this up, as if he had done this on purpose. $50 gone from my pocket.

U-haul is my first choice for renting a vehicle to move large items. Always a great experience from everyone there starting at the counter to the person who preps the vehicle.

The truck was brand new (I think) but it smelled like someone had been driving and smoking in the truck for years. Not a big deal, just a minor inconvenience.

It's so easy to rent a truck, whenever I hear someone asking "does anyone have a truck I can borrow?" I always tell them to just rent one from uhaul. They're affordable, 4 hours is usually enough, and you don't have to buy anyone pizza afterwards. It's so easy. I always appreciate renting from you guys.
