Waited for an hour to get the truck. The lady in the shop was talking to me and 3 other people at the same time and not caring that she had a line of angry customers. After I paid I was told to wait for someone to bring me the truck and it took another 25 minutes. With 13 miles drive and the minimal insurance I paid $82 for 15" truck which was advertised at $29. Obviously $29 is just one the 5 fees that you have to pay, so that was really misleading

We have been renting trucks every Tuesday for 15 years, but when we went to pick up our reserved truck Tuesday morning, our reservation had been canceled. This has happened several times lately, in spite of our prior reservations.

I've used this location multiple times. It is common for them to be understaffed and there to be an excessive wait. This time was particularly bad. One of your workers even announced loudly to the entire store that they were hiring if anyone was interested! I suggest someone consider the anticipated volume of customer traffic and staff accordingly.

I returned the truck in the exact condition that I received it, and yet I was charged with a cleaning fee. When I called to inquiry about what "not clean" about the truck, no one was able to tell me. What a scam.

The reservation system worked well, and staff were very friendly and very competent and hard working. My equipment was ready on time and they were able to make last minute changes to my reservation to make the experience perfect!

I found this U-Haul location and specifically the manager (I believe her name was Dawn) to be outstanding. I have used U-Haul up and down the east coast and this is the best I have ever been treated. Dawn runs a very "tight ship". I listened to her talk with her employees and other customers and was very impressed with all communications. She also had a great personality which is needed if you are going to have a successful business. What you can do to improve: "Get all your other U-Haul locations to be managed in the same manner"

I was over charged for my Uhaul and when I tried to get assistance with the mix up, the Manager Dawn was extremely rude. This was by far the worst customer service experience ever.

They were great it wasn't their fault uhaul messed it all up on the other end. Dawn the manager was so very nice and tried to help the best she could.

Did the advanced check in and it did not seem to make much of a difference. The associate who checked me in seemed like she was reading a script and was not very customer friendly.

I had an online reservation and waited 40 minutes in the store to pick up my uhaul. There was only one person helping customers. It was not her fault but it was terribly understaffed.

My original pickup location, a chevron station on Hawthorne in Athens moved my reservation here after much ado. The first location was very disorganized and cancelled my first truck! So glad this location had one and the employees were so kind and helpful, quite a change from the gas station. They even re-swept the truck before I got it because they did not feel it was clean enough, very thorough and competent.

What was shaping up to be a smooth and relatively easy move, turned into a nightmare without warning. I was stressed and scrambling to sort out how to improve and correct the ridiculous situation my landlord put me in. At my most stressful moment, Dawn swooped in and helped ease my frayed nerves. She politely explained all of my options and searched high-and-low for the best possible solution available. Even though we weren't able to find an adequate alternate solution, Dawn played an integral role in the final resolution to my situation. She was so helpful and kind. I can't thank her enough for her help. 10/10 - would/will recommend the West Athens location to anyone and everyone. Thanks!

When you know the customer has to pick up the truck at store opening, why don't you have the truck ready and in line to come out? We had to wait 45 minutes because a truck with a dead battery was blocking our truck in. Manager was rude and unhelpful and even came outside yelling at us. We rented two trucks and 16 bags of blankets, then had to hand carry all the blankets to the other side of the store even though the employees should have carried them over to that side knowing that was the side of the building where the truck was located. Very inefficient operation at this store.

Choose a different location. Had to wait approx 20 minutes for service. The lady at the desk appeared to be on a personal (cell) phone call. She ended up walking off with 6-8 customers in line, and went outside. The trailer we rented, a 6x12, was very old & in poor condition. The weatherstripping around the roll-up door was torn & loose. The door would not stay up without a prop. Not a good rental experience.

While we were conducting business at one counter location, other workers were being silly and loud among themselves at another counter location making it difficult for us to hear and understand the person we were working with (whom I believe did an excellant job in spite of the activity going on around us). The outside person who brought us the truck was also very good. Overall - I would not hesitate for a second to use this location again.

Poor customer service. Staff was very unprofessional and was joking around and eating while trying to assist customers. In addition, my reservation was cancelled because I didn't pick it up at 11:30am. When I made the reservation I only got to choose a pick up date, not a time. In addition, I was texted the morning of my pick up interpreted the text to mean that my truck was available for pick up at 11:30am and after, not that my reservation would be cancelled if I did not pick it up by 11:30am. Uhaul also called, but did NOT leave a message. Had they left a message I would have called them back. The fact that I went to go pick up my truck (that I had reserved and ALREADY checked-in online) only to find out that they cancelled my reservation and gave my truck away was extremely upsetting as I was to move the very next day. If this is something that Uhaul is going to start requiring, a specific pick up time, at least make it an option during the reservation process to select a time. Don't send the customer a text message the day of pick up stating a specific time. Some people have jobs. Also, in all of the emails I received and the text message it NEVER mentioned that my reservation would be cancelled. This needs to be added so customers are aware that their reservation will be cancelled. The lady who assisted us also selected a drop off location that was 15 miles away from our house. There were 4 other drop off locations within a 2 mile radius of our home and for some god awful reason she selected something 15 miles away. Due to this experience I will never use Uhaul again or recommend this company.

Long wait even with an appointment and rude counter person with a bad attitude. Would more than likely utilize a competitor if customer sercice is that poor. Return was easy and person accepting return was decent and friendly, making the earlier rudeness more insulting.

They should focus more or have more people working on Saturday when they are very busy
