I originally was pre registeted to pick up the truck at the home ave location but when I artived on time they informednme that the trucks battery was dead and found a different location. This affected my milage and my time as the location was farther away and i was scheduled to meet my moving help at 1030 and left some waiting for me to go the other location and get a truck. I was given 59 cents a mile instead of 79 to compensate . Now while I felt that the discount was a kind offer and took it I do feel that the 5.90 discount I recieved for over a half hour of my time as well as the +1.77 added to my miles as the fountain st location was farther wasnt much of a compensation to offer for my inconvenience. It would have been helpful to recieve a call at say 930 am that my 10 am reservation wasnt going to be available and to just start by going to fountain st . So that my day wasnt thrown off by half hour. I understand things happen and everything worked out okay but i do want you to know that my inconvenience did outweigh the compensation offered. Every employee at both locations were nice and proffesional. Thanks

The Vern Oldam location installed the hitch and wiring harness and did not do a good job. When I went to pick up the trailer, the wiring did not work and they left a 3/4" wrench under the car hood. When I took it back to them to correct, they did so and promptly. I then went back to the fountain st location, picked up the trailed and all was good. The next day we left and drove as far as Davidson, NC. That night, I checked the trailer and discovered the left (driverside) of the trailer was not working. I called the service number at 730AM the next morning and was told I would have to pay for the repair. I was not happy with that, the repairmen came out 90 minutes later, confirmed the wiring was poorly done, repaied, or totally unprofessional, the plates to protect the wiring were missing and it was just a mess. He got me back on the road, the service center called and said I would not be responsible for the repair, but why in gods name would you send a trailer out that was compromised?

The only thing that was a negative was the drivers side sun visor fell off during driving. When I reported it upon return of vehicle the attendant said the vehicle would not be used again until it was fixed. I thought this was a good practice since it could cause an accident.

I did not get a confirmation email about pickup location. Went to preferred location only to find out truck was at another spot. Truck had 131000+ miles and shook very badly above 40 MPH.

I have had a terrible experience with your company. First of all, my original pick up location was changed 12 HOURS before I was supposed to pick it up, taking me 20 minutes away from my house. Second, as soon as I got there at 9am for my truck, they told me they did not have it. Pushing me back another 30 minutes. I was told I would have to go to a different location to pick up another truck and they would reimburse me $50. I arrived to get my truck, was assured the $50 would come back to my account in 3-5 days. It has now been 7 days and nothing. I called your customer service and it turns out it was never issued to my account. So now I have to wait another 48 hours to hear from some other representative. This is absolutely unnecessary and I expect a full refund for my truck due to these circumstances. I will never rent a truck from Uhaul again and I will make sure to let everyone I know know the hell i am going through. It's not about the money, it's about the lack of customer care I have received.

Both pick up and delivery of the truck was fast and efficient. Both customer service reps were friendly, informative, and did an overall great job. Will recommend.

I had a pick up time for the truck on Wooster road in Barberton oh at 700 am I received a call at 800am to tell me the truck was not there I had to call around to find a truck which is not my job the people at the 237 fountain st. Akron ohio facility was very helpful and took care of me so needless to say I will not be using uhaul again I rather pay a little extra for another company then to have to do everything my self and give me peace of mind that when told they will have something they will have it

Service for Check- in & out was slow. But They zip through the contract at lightning speed. Everything else was fine. Trailer was very clean & new, which we appreciated

There was only one person working there (and he was great). It would help to move people along if there were two counter people. Overall excellent service by a team of one :)
