Poor customer service. Made us take a much bigger truck then we reserved. Very unfriendly when we complained at this location. Trucks air did not blow cold.

There were a lot of customers and only one employee so it was a long wait to drop off.

Even though the reservation was screwed up (rented and was confirmed a 5x8 trailer but when I arrived I was told I was getting a 6x12 trailer ) the associate was able to get me the correct trailer without any issues.

Nicole was my dispatcher, she provided courteous and wonderful service even when under the pressure of serving multiple clients at the same time. BRAVO!

I was informed on the phone and reassured that the U haul motorcycle trailer would come with tow straps. When I picked it up this was not the case and I needed to purchases tow straps. In addition I was told I would not be able to pick up the equipment early or I would incure a fee and that my scheduled time would be from 1:30 to 4:30. This was also not the case I was called at 1:10 and told I was late for my pickup at 12:30 even though when I picked up the truck my paperwork and online confirmation showed 1:30. I was also requested that I would need to bring the equipment back early because they had double booked the trailer. Overall I feel that the location and call center helping them that day were not on the same page. The staff at the Ames location however were adaquite and professional.

Reserved a trailer a month in advance for 12 hours -7:00am to 7:00 pm. The day before pick up I received a voice message that someone else wanted the trailer so I would have to return it by 5:00 pm. If I already had the trailer reserved until 7:00 - why would you tell someone else they could have it at 5:00?

I've rented or dropped off at this location on several occasions and they are always helpful and professional. I'll use them again for my next rentals.

Good service. Duff Avenue in Ames is just a very busy road, no reflection on the service or quality. We have rented from them twice and have been pleased with service and product.

I don't think it's quite right that you charge my debit card with $80 right away, which shows up THAT DAY on my bank account. Then when the vehicle is returned you process a credit ($50.00) which takes 3-5 days to show up on my account. There has to be a better way.

The trailer was dusty from a previous use. It looked like it had been used to transport gravel, so the entire trailer was covered in a gray dust. Clearly it had not been cleaned upon the prior return.

Not sure what could be done better but I just wanted to say that this is the second time I've needed to rent a cargo van and did so from this Uhaul location. Both times the people were very friendly and helpful, the equipment was like-new, clean and working perfectly. I would definitely recommend this Uhaul location to anyone needing a vehicle for moving. Thanks guys!

The technician worked through an issue in a professional manner and earned my long term loyalty.

Warn me ahead of time about the possible pick up problem in Algona. I would have used Eagle Grove instead.

We have no comment here since the POS truck was towed away to this location. We did not interact with them.

Let customers know your "enclosed" trailers are not waterproof up front especially when it's raining out. I was very disappointed to find water in the trailer

We've always had a good experience with U-Haul. This time, they were able to get us a last-minute reschedule. Like, "we need a truck...right now???" kind of last minute. Thanks!

while not the fault of the pick up location, reservation system is flawed. I got a different size trailer, at a different location, and a different time than what was 'reserved'. For anyone that has time, equipment or location limitations the system could be very problematic.
