Both the men on the phone and at the desk were very helpful and professional. I was out the door within minutes once the safety check was performed.

The store employee was late to open the store and the parking lot was very crowded with trucks, making parking possible only if you drive over a curb.

With only one employee on site, there seemed to be an extended amount of wait time. When I arrived the employee was moving equipment, I waited for ten minutes then had to get him so he knew I was here. When I returned the employee was on phone with customer, and I had to wait over fifteen minutes to be helped. The employee was very pleasant, and helpful. He knew his job, and the function of checking in and out, once he was available when very smoothly. He needs more help.

I had a great welcome from the staff at the Douglas location in DesMoines, Ia. I plan to use this location again in the future.

Staff was helpful when the truck I reserved wasn't ready. However, the replacement truck was dirty - dirty windshield, sticky floor and seats. There was a UHaul $50 guarantee that apparently doesn't apply if you agree to a lesser truck for a lesser price. I've been disappointed with this location before...lesson learned.

My rental reservation was moved (twice). I would make sure people are aware that the online reservation times listed are not guaranteed.

There was another customer waiting in line there with me we probably waited about 10 or 15 minutes before we were helped. While we were waiting the customer did most of the complaining, he was saying that Penske was a better company and that they had better service. I've never used any other services but Uhaul maybe next time I'll try a different service.

Overall good experience. Have rented from this location before. The fella that helped me in the a.m. at 7:00 was not real welcoming. Did not say hi or good morning or actually talk to me for the first 2-3 minutes.

Everything was made easy. Picked up truck at my convenience and returning equipment was as easy as dropping keys off and driving away. A+

I originally requested a 17' truck. However, when they knew they would not have one available, they upped my reservation to a 20' truck. However, when I arrived on site, they thought they had a 20' on the lot, but they did not. Instead, they discounted me a 15' truck. This was adequate space for my move, but i was glad to have moved some smaller items beforehand.

The truck was a little junky but worked fine. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Pick-up and check-out were quick and nicely streamlined. Good job, guys.

The manager wasn't friendly at all and was rude. He was a big turn off.
