I called in for a reservation at 5:20 pm for a vehicle needed at 5:30 pm. I arrived at the facility at 5:25 pm. I was in the vehicle and leaving the location at 5:32. Excellent service.

My uhaul experience was horrible. I made reservations for a 17' truck to be picked up in Streetsboro Ohio. I never received a call that the pickup wasn't going to be in Streetsboro. I received a text message the day prior to my pickup and was told it had to be picked up in Akron. Akron is an additional 30 minutes from Streetsboro and my home. It took me several hours and several phone calls to arrange for someone to assist me with the pickup. I was 10 minutes from the Akron uhaul place when I received a call from them telling me that the 17' truck was not going to be available until closing time (7 or 8pm). Due to the availability of my friend to assist me I had to choose a 15' truck that was currently available. I am more than a little upset with the way the entire situation was handled. I was provided extra time and mileage for the truck and was told I would get a $50 refund check but I do not feel that this was a good experience and will most likely choose another option next time and will also make sure all of my friends and family know how horrible the experience was.

Everything went smoothly. I just wish this location, and all of the others, had 4x8 enclosed trailers.

These comments are unrelated to the pickup/drop off locations or their staff (everyone I interacted with at my locations was pleasant & helpful). That being said, I am disappointed with my uhaul experience. I made my reservation over a week in advance and set preferred pickup & drop off locations and times. When I rechecked my reservation on the website, my preferred pickup had been changed to one further away so I edited it back to where I wanted. Then I called customer service to see if I could get that pickup location confirmed and was told that no, confirmations were not given until the day before the move (which is inconvenient and stressful during planning a move). So the day before arrives and I hear nothing from uhaul until calling again myself in the afternoon, I was told that they had tried calling/texting/emailing me already. It's possible I missed a call, but I double checked and had definitely not received any text or email. So, the rep on the phone resent me a confirmation email, which had me set to pickup the uhaul 22 mins from my home (when there is another location just a few blocks away) and at 9:00am when I requested 8:30am. The rep was able to change the time for me but said it was too late to change the location (it was too late because uhaul won't confirm until the day before). Then my drop off location was 20 mins away as well. So just driving to and from uhaul locations added an hour and twenty mins to my already long moving day. I think there needs to be improvement to the reservation system and put the customer's convenience first. Oh, additionally my cost total came to about $40 more than estimated online even though I had already added my savemove coverage and furniture pads in online.

Rearrange the display floor too make out more costumer friendly. Its too crowded and staff cannot see entire area in one visual look across the room without having to leave from the desk space.

Offer non smoking vehicles. As a non smoker, it was tough to drive 13 hours in a vehicle that had a strong cigarette smell.

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?
