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.

Everyone at the Ames, Iowa UHaul is AWESOME! I really appreciate their extra effort to help me get a great truck for my move. They were helpful, accommodating and made great suggestions for the right size. Thanks!

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.

Was very glad that this type of service was available in the area? The workers were very easy to work with and very accommodating. The process was fast and easy and was explained well. Thanks for everything made my daughters move in go so much smoother.

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.

After having to trade up from a trailer to a 10' truck due to availibilty issues at the last minute notice. Then given 211 miles to get from point a to point b. Went over the limit by 4 miles and was charged. Was like Pouring salt into the wound.

Nothing! They were friendly and helpful. They made a simple mistake of saying the truck was full when it was empty, so we had to fill it up, but that's not their fault (they have had problems with fuel theft). Only thing, we took it on a test drive and it was making noise, then they had to take it on a test drive and the mileage wasn't re-recorded so we got charged for mileage overage.

Lot more expensive than it makes you believe. Just had to move a bed and didn't feel like waiting to borrow a friend's truck. Thought 19.95 sounded reasonable for the convenience. Ended up costing more than the bed was worth after mileage (plus having to fill the tank besides). Won't ever use them again.

Needle was at "F" when I picked the truck up, but the fuel tank wasn't actually full, so I ended up paying for more gas than I actually used. I used a pickup truck for less than 20 miles, so there was no way I used 4 gallons of fuel. But otherwise it was a very smooth experience. I love the online reservation system.

Tight parking & driving - need bigger lot

The tight set up of the parking lot and location was not ideal, but it was still easy enough to drop the keys in the box and leave.
