Know the height of the interior of the truck. I was told that the interior of the truck was 6'3" and it wasn't.

The staff were excellent and fast. Kind and courteous and that was more important then a few bumps and bruises the truck had

Some of the trucks are a bit old. They are significantly damaged and have high mileage. They should be replaced by newer models.

The truck I was given had many issues: from the rubber door seal flapping around while driving, seat belt unable to hook in, passenger door barely closing due to prior accident damage. Very frustrated with this truck, which should be properly fixed before renting out again.

The young man that took my reservation for a truck which was a 15-footer and a car pull Dolly never made the reservation properly. U-Haul wanted me to go outside of Philadelphia into another Township to pick up the car pulley for the car which would of put more miles on the truck I rented from U-Haul. U-Haul representative stated that I would get a call when the equipment was located in Philadelphia. Your representative stated that I would get a call to tell me when to pick it up I had to call numerous times which was 5 to 6 times and each time my husband was hung up on.This location(west philly) and my whole entire experience with this company was horrible. I had to keep the truck that I was renting for a extra day-and-a-half extra due to the fact that my reservation was not put into the computer properly and I never received the car transportation pulley and was charged a ridiculous amount of money due to the incompetence of the people that you have employed at your company. In November of 2016 I planned on moving out of state and I had planned on using your company again," not anymore", Your rates are ridiculous when I was forced to keep your equipment for extra day and a half. I know most likely I won't get a response from these few lines that I put because of course that's how your company is they don't care about their customers all you care about is the money and how much money you make. This company has gone to s*** just like this country. One day you all are going to have to answer to somebody,one day trust what I mean one day you will have too.

First off - the site needs to demand that it's customers bring the vehicles back with the fuel tank full! I checked out in the morning with the fuel gauge reading 7/8. By the time I drove 1 mile, the fuel gauge read only 3/4. Before returning the vehicle, after driving a total of 5 miles, 1-2-3-4-5 miles, I filled the tank with a little more than 6 (six) gallons of fuel at a cost of more than $15. The "game" of trying to fill the fuel tank back to the check out level is very frustrating. Filling the tank for automobile rentals works, just fine - and charging a customer some outrageous cost per gallon would seem to be a great incentive for those customers to return the vehicles with full tanks. I understand this location was NOT adequately staffed to fill the tanks of the trucks on return - but the current practice is completely unsatisfactory.

Customer service from employees is clearly not important in the hiring and training process. Three out of three employees I interacted with were not friendly and, more importantly, unhelpful with the simple process of checking in from an online reservation and dropping off after the rental.

Arrived to pick up a 20' truck we reserved a month ago. Had a long wait while the rep helped someone before us through an order cancellation. It's our turn and find out that the truck hadn't been returned. We are given a 26' truck, which was better than a too small truck but wow what a beast to drive and took the movers longer to load. They ended up leaving us stranded at our new house with a whole truck left to unpack. "We have another job to go to," is what they told two women who had told them ahead of time we would need them for 2.5-3hrs. Return of the truck was smooth and easy though. Pull in, rep came right out, checked the vehicle, and processed everything right on his handheld device. Both uhaul associates were great. But after this experience I'll just hire a moving company with their own truck next time.

The truck was hard to start everytime I turned it off in had to play with the steering wheel for it to start and I was told one price and my card was charged something different. Sad shame I won't ever use them again.

I was very pleased with this location. I was very late with the return of the rental due to an unforeseen situation. They were very helpful and patient. I will definitely be utilizing this service again, as well as, refer to others. Thanks!!
