I have NEVER been treated the way I was treated when I picked up my rental on 9/23/2016. New Manager Bad mouth OLD manager( not my business why OLD manager left) I have spent well over $2500+ dollars with this company and at this location and I will NOT use them again. Yelled at me I NEED TO KNOW WHERE MY TRUCK is GOING!!.. I had already explained to him where it was going...I'm a third party vendor for Iowa state Athletics and I didn't appreciate the TONE or attitude from this Manager. OLD manager was welcoming and very helpful. always took care of me and my company for the last few years.

Rented a pickup and car hauler. Just a few miles down the road a low air in tire light came on so had to find a place to pull off and air up a pickup pulling a trailer. Not very convenient.

Best service ever, made our move enjoyable, well except for all the lifting and stairs. U-haul part of the move was 5??????????

I was extremely pleased with the courtesy toward us and the speed of both the pickup and drop-off of the trailer we rented. This was a very pleasant surprise from the way I was treated by personnel at this business nine years ago when I tried to rent a trailer and left in disgust. I would definitely recommend this business to friends and family.

Remove the metal dividers that separate the cab from the cargo area from your cargo vans. This may reduce the number of rental requests received, because the divider decreases hauling space, especially for longer loads that are to long for an 8' truck but to short to rent a 16' moving truck.

I was given a truck that had a broken door. When we realized it was broken it was about 11pm so we called roadside assistance immediately. They couldn't help us at all that night, so I agreed we could wait until 8am the next morning. I was told I would be called at 7am, by 8:30 there was no contact from a service provider. After calling and explaining everything again it was eventually determined that no local company could assist me and it was up to me to figure out what to do. When I called the store in Ames (Duff location) the general manager was condescending and rude and acted like I was making a big deal out of nothing. He was incredibly unprofessional and it was likely because I'm a female. I was able to trade in the truck and he was originally going to charge full price until my husband insisted we deserved a discount, at which point he groaned and gave in. I'll never use this location again based off my interactions with the general manager. He has no sense of customer service and respect for people who are understandably stressed when their moving truck door is broken with all their possessions inside.

I needed 2 26 foot trucks and they did not have two so they gave me a 26 and a 17 therefore causing me to have to come back the next day and rent a 17 foot truck again to be able to complete my move. It was costly for me.

The location is overfilled with vehicles and trailers, hard to move around. The people are great!

Busy college drop off location. Informed them the trailer lights were not working, he seemed unconcerned. (this was a major safety issue for us) He then asked us to park the trailer in another lot for them. We had to navigate in tight spaces and heavy traffic (in pouring rain) to go to another lot to drop the trailer.

Make sure the tires on the trailer won't get a flat.

Because it was a move in weekend at a college town, they were swamped with customers and drop offs so much that they almost did not have room for my trailer. Once the person came, she found a place to put the trailer and it all went smoothly. I think I got there during a rush because we had to wait to get someone's attention. All in all, it was a fine experience and I would go back.

It was very busy, The one man working was very busy but still very nice. Very good at customer service! The parking was absolutely awful and return was even worse due to no where to put the trucks. It took a very long time to get the truck because it was so busy and only staffed one person. I couldn't believe he was still so polite and friendly. Very under staffed for the amount of people coming in and out at this time. I rented a furniture dolly we never used, and the lady on the phone said I would have same truck as last time but it was smaller. Plus I was told $19.95/day even though it wasn't available for a day and it was more. Just alot of mix ups the only good thing was the nice man working at time of pick up.

Nice place, my only complaint would be that it seems severely understaffed at times. Hey U-Haul, don't be so frugal, hire some employees!

Jonathon Gass did a very good job on his customer service responsibilities. He was very thorough with the procedures. He apologized when it took him an extra 2 mins. to retrieve my rental vehicle. It was in a different lot. This was my first time in Ames store and first time meeting Jonathon. While waiting, the store mgr., even asked if my needs were taken care of. Please send Compliments to the Ames, Iowa store.

This location was very organized and I got my return taken care of quickly. I did think the team was very rushed and didn't seem as friendly. They weren't rude but just came across as hurried and weren't very personable.
