I started out at the uhaul on douglas in Des Moines and they put the hitch on my car and were to have a 6X12 closed uhaul attached to my car. when we got there it was an open uhaul and they didn't have a closed one so we had to go to east 14th. I would never recommend the store on Douglas - not only did they have the wrong trailer (stopped 3 times and was assured everything was in order) they charged me the same price for the open as they did the closed. then we had another issue because I paid cash - took over 45 minutes to get my cash back. the douglas store needs some good management.

Have more employee's working in the morning, on the first weekend of each month. I had to wait an hour to get my truck, the 2 kids working were great and moving as fast as they could. But you should definitely have more people at the check in desk, considering all of us were told to be there at 9am

Organization, correct scheduling, follow through, customer service SUCKS....overcharged for entire ordeal, lied to about size of van, literally lost $300 piece of furnature because of miss-truths about size of vehicle....calling attorney general and Better Business Bureau and fining formal complaints this coming week....I gave U-Haul EVERY chance to remedy the situation, but they were much more interested in OVERCHARGING me than the money I lost because of messed up reservations and lying customer service reps who convinced me to rent a van that is ''ëquivelent" to the size of truck I asked for. I will be telling EVERYONE about my experience, and posting ALL details on social media...tried Repeatedly to get to a corporate level on customer service or mgmt., was only put on hold for 30+ minutes, then eventually disconnected. NEVER will use UHaul again, Honestly, thought about picketing the location...WORST CONSUMER TRANSACTION I'VE EVER HAD.....the. absolute. worst.

first the trailer brake lights were broken, the person i talk in the phone to make my reservation told me , i could rent the trailer in des moines and and live it in the city i move to. 2 hours away . when i got to the u-haul in des moines the person who gave me the trailer told i have to returned it to their location. in des moines i was disappointing just to drive back the next day to give them back, when there is a u-haul in my city close to me , but if i would left it there , there would charge me 300 dollars cause i left the trailer no in their u- haul in des moines ,

I had requested a location more convenient to us, but was sent here. Apparently not all trailer sizes are in all locations or arrangements aren't made to move such a trailer to make it more convenient for the customer.

Uhaul employee did not review any part of the contract with me. The truck was filthy and dirty inside and out! Charges and rental fees where not clearly explained and worked seemed distracted and annoyed if I asked any questions.

I was told not to use that place because workers weren't very friendly but that isn't true they were all very nice and friendly - I would recommend the place to everyone.

Make sure to double check when booking a reservation -- despite repeating the info a few times, the employee booked the rental for the wrong day. Fortunately, one was available for the correct date. In addition, some items that should be provided at the location were not, necessitating additional costs and a trip to Home Depot to get what was needed.

Why make reservations for a certain pick up location, when it even states equipment will be there, if there is a chance it wont be? I was notified the day before my move that i had to drive 40 min 1 way to pick up. And then vehicle had less than half a tank of fuel! Would make more sense to pick up and drop off full of fuel! It took over an hour to check out also after equipment reserved wasnt in the system, then the guy pushed the wrong button and deleted everything and had to start over! Will definitely never use u-haul again!

A lower few/ or cost per mile if under 30 miles or less.

This dropoff went smoothly, but I've had previous experiences were this location was understaffed and required long waits.

I was not told up front that I couldn't pay cash to rent your cargo van! If my daughter hadn't had her ctedit card card with her, our move wouldn't have happened!! I don't have a credit card only a disability debit card that didn't have enough on it to pay for the van & they knew that upfront when I reserved the van! Poor customer service & I will never use U-Haul again PERIOD!!

I rented a mt (motorcycle trailer) for a pickup and explained I was picking up in a different state and dropping back where I rented it that night. Who rents out a trailer with s 55mph limit? This is a MOVING company im sure they are aware most moves require interstate travel!
