What can I say? The people I dealt with were friendly, courteous and professional. The cargo van I rented was clean, new, and perfect for what I needed to move. The location (proximity to ISU) was great. I would rent from here again and recommend Uhaul and this location to others.

Best service I have ever received at a UHaul center! Faculty was clean inside, as were our rentals.

Aside from the truck being 20 years old (still worked great!) the parking brake broke off before I even got to move the vehicle. waited around for 20 minutes for the associate to come out. they were extremely nice but as is working with vehicles (i work on vehicles for a living so I know the uniqueness of the situation, I am not upset at all fyi) they weren't extremely knowledgeable into this. after I did some testing the parking brake wasn't causing any issues so we decided that I would continue on my trip. worked great, didnt come across any other problems and the truck worked like a charm. They took very good care of me and I will absolutely continue to rent from Uhaul.

Ordered 15 ft truck which was confirmed. Day before pickup received email confirming 20 ft truck at same price. Didn't need or want larger truck since harder to drive and used more gas, but was informed that was all available even though there were 3 15 ft trucks in the lot. Also had ordered 2 mattress bags which manager claimed we had already picked up. We had not but ended up buying 2 more. Not a big cost but also irritating and not very professional. Would definitely go with another company next time need a truck in Ames.

I would've given it a better rating but when I first went in to reserve my trailer they told me my wiring harness was bad and I would need to get it fixed before I rented from them. I went to an O'Reilly auto parts store and had them test it because I didn't believe the wiring harness was shot and O'Reilly said it was good and uhaul didn't know why they would tell me it didn't work.. I was a little irritated by that. But I was able to pick up my trailer on the day I rented it and the it was ready when I was ready.

Didnt receive receipt emailed to me for the initial charges. Didn't let me inspect the vehicle before renting

The lady (only person working at the time) was very nice and accommodating. I called ahead letting her know we were dropping off the truck and might not make it before close, she told us to take our time and not rush and explained the 24 hour drop off procedure. We got there 5 minutes before close and she took care of us. She was very nice and patient. Great customer service!!!

By far the best ran and personable u-haul store I have ever utilized! You can tell great service is an expectation from whomever the manager is.

Quoted over the phone a 29.99 rental rate. Found out when I got there (from 2 1/2 hrs away) that insurance was not included (+$8) and I also had to purchase a plug adapter (everywhere else I've rented from lets you borrow them) for another $14. I could've borrowed a similar trailer and pulled it the 125 miles to suit my needs for an additional $30 gas money. Thought it would be wiser just to rent one for the same money once I got to Ames. Would have appreciated it if the additional nickel and diming would have been explained over the phone. I also found out Uhaul Ames doesn't loan out ball hitches either but thankfully I had one and was not forced to buy one of those. It turned out it was nearly double the cost renting from Uhaul than borrowing a trailer and spending extra in gas money. Oh well...

The employees were friendly and explained everything step by step, which was a relief as I had never moved by myself before. I will be using this place again in any future moving or hauling.

For a company as large as U-Haul, I would expect that they would eventually have a 6' x 12' open trailer in Mason City, Iowa! I had to drive 3-hours (1.5 hours each way) to return the trailer. Who on earth do I need to contact to get a 6' x 12' open trailer (no ramp on back please), in Mason City or Clear Lake, Iowa? If Leonard Shoen (started U-Haul in 1945), were still alive, I bet, he would put a trailer in north central Iowa (Mason City or Clear Lake).

Cruise control would make the trip more enjoyable. Also a trailer jack would be nice so a guy can disconnect trailer to load the truck. The trailer tongue is to short to jack knife the trailer to load an unload. The tongue weight is over 150 pounds to unhook the trailer by hand. Take a 100 pound woman out an try it. Not possible.
