I know there are lots of changes going on at this location, and I do still prefer the customer service overall here then other places I have been, but if possible look into a speedy check in area possibly for those, like me who register and sign in online before picking up to make it faster for those like me who need to pick up quickly and get out. Many times, people walk in on street and it is a long process for them, while all I have to do is show my id and pay. Just a possible future suggestion to look into, because sometimes I don't really have 30 mins to wait to get my vehicle. It might encourage others to rsvp online, and then fill out the form that is suggests one to do. It saves loads of time. Thanks!

I did not catch her name, but the employee who waited on me was really helpful, friendly, polite and quick. Definitely the nicest person I've ever dealt with at UHaul.

This location was extremely busy when we tried to return the equipment on a Saturday Afternoon. We couldn't even pull into the lot due to the backlog of trucks needing checked. Went into the office to try to figure out where we should park the truck. It was cluttered and there were about 5 people waiting in line ahead of me. Went back out and a nice man checking trucks was able to pull one forward so we could get in the lot.

More counter personnel during peak times. Students returning to school. DUD!! Spare keys for vehicles for back-up at office

I needed the truck for an out of town move 3 hours away so I had to take a package deal that cost almost $250.00 and I was told if I returned the truck a day early then I should receive a day credit which was at $40.00 a day. Well when I returned the truck I was informed that U-Haul don't return money on the package deal that I had to pay for. I called the establishment that I rented the truck from, using the phone of the establishment that I returned the truck and was placed on hold for a total of over 30 minutes. Whereafter a woman finally clicked in, who coincidentally sounds like the woman that assisted me and she proceeded to tell me that I should not have been told that and the agent that told me this was off that day. I felt scammed and cheated out of a day that I have to cover in case U-Haul equipment breaks down on me but it should be like a deposit because I know that $#!7* happens. However, it was a Smooth move and I was able to return the equipment in less than 24 hours with more gas in it than when I received it and was charged almost $250.00. Well this was my last go around with your company because I feel like this was bad business.

I have requested my $25 discount for returning the truck swept and cleaned out. There was a posted sign in the back of the truck stating this. I sent an email three times and never received any response.

rather confusing setup. People working at the counter but not helping customers. Overall the staff are VERY helpful.

I was told on the phone by the lady when reserving the trailer that my 2 5/16" ball would be fine for our 5' x 8' UHaul trailer. She was wrong as it would not fit. So I had to buy a 2" ball from UHaul. The Champaign UHaul staff person helped me by mounting the new 2" ball on my receiver. So 6 hours down the road on I-90/94 at mile marker 068 at 55 mph , the nut on the new 2" ball came off and the ball came off the receiver. With the UHaul trailer wobbling back and forth being held on only by the two chains at 55 mph, we were able to get stopped on the inside shoulder of the road with traffic flying past us. After we got stopped on the inside road shoulder, the UHaul trailer hitch had gotten wedged under my Toyota Tacoma's rear tailpipe and frame, bending in my truck's rear fender. We left the trailer on the interstate with our daughter watching over it while we drive a 60 mile round trip to purchase s second 2" ball.

I felt it took a little to much time to wait for someone to check in the truck I waited 15 min outside before I went in to get someone. They had no customers inside when I went in.

Staff was great--friendly, efficient. This was true when I was on the phone, picking up the truck, and when I returned it--all staff members!!

Speed things up. The location definitely seemed understaffed which definitely slowed things down.

Despite reserving hand truck and 2 dozen moving pads when set up rental, neither were available when I picked up vehicle. Vehicle itself was fine.

Had to drive 35 minutes to pick up the trailer when there are at least 2 dealers 10-15 minutes or less from my house. Need to take customer's preferences much more seriously.

Our agent was great. The truck was handy and easy to drive (esp. since we don't own a truck of our own and never drive one!). We would highly recommend using the Uhaul pickups for small moves, like moving a kid into a dorm. It was super!

I had to wait 45 min in line to check in to pick up the truck. The ladies were working like beavers to wait on everyone, but there was only one person to check in customers for rentals. More staff is needed not telling the overworked folks there to work harder. They did a great job! They deserve many accolades for their work under trying conditions. There just wasn't enough great staff to go around.

Excellent experience renting a van. No hassles. I did the pre-check-in, which probably sped things up a little, but I have a feeling that the people at this store would've made the rental easy no matter whether you did the pre-check-in or not.

Customer service was very good - they were willing to work with us if we decided to upgrade at the time of pickup of our rental.

Waited nearly two hours in line to check out. Only one person working the counter.

I reserved a 26' truck in advance and confirmed beforehand. When I picked up, all they had was a 20' truck. As I had hired movers for that specific day, I had to take it. It was not any cheaper. And the truck leaked water. Now I have to rent another truck to move the things I could not fit into the smaller truck -- not my fault. I wonder what U-Haul plans to do to address this.

They definitely needed more people working at the counter waiting on customers. I had to wait in line for approx. 45 minutes before getting to the front. For the first 30 min. there was only one person working.
