The person working Saturday morning didn't open the front door till 7:15 and there was 4 different customers waiting when he opened the door. Just started the day off so I had people waiting on me to start moving.

Very difficult location to get in/out of unless coming from one direction (West). Trailer cables were inoperable, fixing took 20 minutes (or more) additional. Dolly that I rented was not put in the trailer as indicated by staff, had to make return trip.

We did not receive the equiptment that we had requested. Had requested both appliance and furniture dollies and was sent out with a utility dolly. Otherwise, rental went pretty smoothy - although we had to pick up truck at a different location on a different day than we had requested.

This is a very small facility and a little difficult to maneuver through to even pick up the trailer. Otherwise good service provided.

My car got blocked in when I parked it there for 5 minutes to rent a van. Parking lot is often a mess. Will be using different options next time I need to rent a van or truck.

When your equipment breaks down and it takes almost 9 hours to receive any help while my child and pets wait in the heat? Most of your staff was incompetent, couldn't spell or were just plain rude! What uhaul did to my family was disgusting and nearly cost my animals their lives! I will NEVER use uhaul again!

The contract said to return to this location, however when I arrived the staff person said they didn't have room and I needed to go someplace else. Fortunately I had a voicemail that also stated this return location. When we attempted to leave with our personal vehicle, the entrances were blocked so I asked the staff to move the uhaul equipment so we could get out and he said to give him some time. Literally after about a half hour I said we needed to leave and I managed to find a way out myself.

Overall, a very good experience. Specified 10' truck was available and the staff was friendly and helpful. The truck could have been swept out prior to pick-up, but it was no big deal. Would definitely use them again.

Our experience with one of the employees was excellent in terms of his friendliness, helpfulness, willingness to answer questions, etc. he worked on the weekend when we stopped to inquire about renting & reserved our cargo van & was there when returned. When we came to rent the person that had "general manager" name on his shirt was almost rude and hardly answered our questions. The cargo van worked well for us.

Difficult to find an employee for help on a Saturday evening even though they were not terribly busy. Fast check in.

Greg was a little busy, but did provide great customer service. Greg did a thorough job in inspecting my rental on return, even when he was a little busy. He made sure he was doing his job, for the company and for the customer. Please send Compliments to the Des Moines, Iowa, douglas street location. Good job, U-haul

Apparently customer service is not important with U-haul. The general manager at this location and absolutely no business dealing with customers. Apparently when you are the only show in town you don't need to treat customers with respect and courtesy.

Cramped parking lot to enter, and leave.

We had a 9am appointment and didn't get our vehicle until 1045. We were then asked to change to a different vehicle because the one we had rented had a 12 client. We declined to change vehicles and asked for a refund because of the time we waited. The employee advised he would not be able to give us a discount and that i would need to call the manager on Monday. I called the manager on monday and it went straight to a busy signal all day. I tried the main number on tuesday and was put on hold. I decided to not waste anymore time waiting on uhaul. Very upsetting.

Pushed the insurance after I already said I was covered on my own auto policy. Also, was reluctant to give me a different trailer when it was discovered that lights were not working on the right side. I was told, "you probably won't get pulled over, but I can get you a different trailer if you are uncomfortable". He repeated that a few times, As if the safety and legal issue of an unlit trailer on the highway after dark was somehow an indicator of my personal driving confidence. There were 4 identical trailers with working lights right there and only took a couple minutes to switch. I think the guy was just lazy. Nice and polite, but lazy to the point of poor judgement.
