They changed my pick location without checking with me because they over booked unit just a 3 miles from my move location and took me extra 2 hours in drive time and the place is small and took way more time to check in and out than should have taken / the guy was nice but locatin is terrible so small and stuff in the way made it the worst rental experience ever.

I booked on line the use the same day. Truck was ready when I got there. Quoted price was exactly what I paid. Good experience.

Equipment was clean but I'm not sure how well maintained. Armrest on passenger side of truck was slightly damaged but everything worked to our satisfaction. Keep focused on customer and their needs vs txt - which he did for most part

The location is convenient, and the staff is very friendly. The location has too much equipment for the lot it is on, and makes entering and exiting the facility very hard. There is an empty lot right next door. U Haul should consider an expansion at this location. Thanks for the great service.

I thought the guy who got my cargo van was very nice. I appreciated that. Seemed like a brand new cargo van and was extremely comfortable and modern. Only think I didn't like was that nobody was in the office at this location for some time. I know they were taking care of the trucks, but two people just didn't seem to be enough. The wait must have been around 10+ minutes. I had to walk outside in the cold to try and get help. Still love uhaul and will always use uhaul.

I had hoped for a location on the East side Des Moines instead of the west side. U-Haul of Urbandale in itself was good from a business sense.

The two gentlemen were really nice and helpful and tried to keep us first as they got busy with drop offs.

Rep asked if I wanted tow protection for $24. I agreed. They didn't tell me that it was PER DAY! When I questioned them upon return, I was told "sorry" When I picked up the trailer and was given the rental cost estimate I told them I thought it was too much. They told me that it was two days of rental plus $24 for the tow package plus an additional day because I picked up the trailer before 5 o'clock and that it would get adjusted when I return the trailer. What it actually was was the additional day of The tow package. the representative didn't know that and didn't tell me. I felt I was owed for that extra amount however I was just told sorry

The only issue with this location is that is only has access in the east bound direction. you cannot get in or out of the location to go west bound without completing a U-turn.
