Tell the employees who are checking the truck upon return to work a little faster. When we returned ours, it took at least 15 minutes to go over everything on the truck. But over all very friendly so thank you

Only thing I did not like is that the price ! They stated that local will be 29.00 and 10.00 for dolly no one explains to me that they will be charging me $.79 per mile, little disappointed since I am in a budget.

Upon calling to inquire about a truck we specifically said we'd need it to be able to move household items but most of importance, a refrigerator. They said for $10 we'd be supplied with the proper equipment to move it safely. Upon picking up the truck we again specifically mentioned we'd be moving a refrigerator and we were assured that the items needed to move said fridge was in the truck....for an extra $10. Great! Before we left, no one checked the back to see if said items were included to move this refrigerator. So coming home and opening back......a small dolly and whatever was in the bag on top of the dolly. I thought to move a fridge you needed a good sized dolly and some straps! Am I wrong?! Had to improvise and managed with household utility items to secure this fridge along with extra people help......VERY disappointed that no one cared to make sure we had the proper equipment before leaving but was so ready to charge the extra $$.. Upon returning the truck, Sam? Was very nice, courteous, and professional. He deducted the extra $10 we were charged. Next time I won't depend on am employee to make sure their truck is supplied with items I may need. Live and learn.....

First let me clarify... This is not the usual location I rent from, I called a location closer to my house (No. Chester ave), but the person answering quoted me for 2 days rental if I was unable to return the trailer before they closed that night.) More training was needed at that location, but I still needed I trailer so I called the Union ave location. I called and spoke with a very knowlegeable / friendly person who made a reservation for trailer. Upon pickup, I was assisted to attach the trailer, and verify the lights. (but not go over the condition of the trailer) Later, I had a blow-out, and noticed the remaining tires were in poor condition, and there was no license plate on the trailer. (roadside service asked for the plate number) When the tire blew, the brake line was severed, but there were no more trailers available (from roadside service). This left me uneasy for the remainder of the trip, I drove very carefully the remaining miles. So, the take away here, the inside employee(s) did a great job, but the service / setup employee(s) not so much. I am not at sure I want to continue renting from uhaul at this point...I or my property (or others on the road) could have been harmed by the negligent condition of the trailer. I've often felt nervous by the condition of the tires (or other parts of the trailer), but when I mention it, the employee usually just shrugs...

We rented a truck because it was raining and the there was water inside. Was pointed to the it's not waterproof. So what the point of renting a truck from you if it rents and ur stuff gets wet.

i had to go back to the same location several times to get access to my storage. the staff could have informed me of this when i called them in the morning and not wasting over two hours of my time trying to get access.

Nothing. I would say excellent except the facility is on a busy corner and a little difficult for me to get out of, but then I do not usually drive a truck. The staff was courteous and accommodating, they get an excellent.

It was a disaster. I pre ordered online. I wanted a 24 foot truck and car hauler to move from Bakersfield to Stockton CA. Online it asked where my final destination would be. I clicked Stockton CA. When I got to the S Union Avenue Bakersfield location I was told I reserved "local." I did not. On top of that the 24 foot truck wasn't there. They did have the car hauler. But that meant I had to drive to another location to get the truck. Even so it was a larger truck and not the size I originally wanted. Plus, I would have to come back to S Union to get the car hauler! When I went to get the truck at the Bakersfield Los Amigos location the representative did not have his pass code to get into his own Uhaul account. The location was an indoor swap meet. So I had to wait another 30 minutes for his wife to arrive to get into the account. She completed the reservation. But because she spoke broken English it was difficult to understand her and took longer than necessary. Once completed I drove the truck back to the S Union location to get the car hauler. I explained to the manager my frustration. He was professional. But after everything I went thru he tells me how lucky I was to be driving a new Uhaul truck. I explained how I didn't care if it was new or 20 years old. I just had hoped for a more pleasant experience. He noted that the car hauler I reserved showed about a half off discount. But he couldn't explain why. So that was nice. But I lost about two hours time on my trip even after reserving online. Bad experience. Come on Uhaul! I have rented many times before w no problems. You are better than this!

If a client request a supervisor one should be available to talk to the client telephone operators should not hang up on a prospective client simply because the client does not want to talk to them
