The gentleman was super sweet and informative. I was rather frazzled due to driving a uhual with my car attached over 400miles with the truck acting up, and his demeanor helped me lower my anxiety.

The Uhaul trailer I rented was attached by a Uhaul employee who failed to make sure the trailer ball hitch was attached correctly or tell me to buy a different hitch because the one I had was not strong enough to haul the trailer. I was driving on the freeway and the trailer violently detached from my truck because of the unsecured and inadequate ball bumper hitch that was attached to the trailer by a Uhaul employee. My personal belongings were damaged and I was forced to stay in hotel room costing me an additional 150 dollars.

The only bad thing I would have to say is one of the workers, I assume she was a manager, made a statement to an employee in front of me that the customer is supposed to fold the furniture pads. I was never told this by the location where I pocked the truck up so I was unaware. It could have been approached in a better manner in my opinion. Once I expressed my dissatisfaction with my experience of the initial pickup location, she apologized and informed the elemployee of how to go about not charging me for the furniture pads that were never given to me. She asked if I had called the location about it and my response was no because once I realized the mistake I was already loading the truck and ready to finish so I could get on the road as soon as possible. Overall, my experience with this location was much better at this location and I would consider using this location for any future moving needs.

we did not receive the things we ordered and missed blankets to cover our furniture. I dont think/know if it is unique to the location it just seemed like ordering online and actual equipment there were out of sync.

We were dissapointed as we were supposed to drop off at Felton but once we got there they said we had to go to Santa Cruz which is already about 17 miles from our new house. But neither location was at fault just bad planning of Uhaul overall. Both sets of pickup and droppff staff were really helpful!

The service was great. We had a fuel leak that appeared when we were filling gas - we were lucky that this appeared while we were still in the area where we rented the truck, but unlucky that we'd already loaded it. That meant we had to go back, change trucks, and move everything from one truck to the other. As the clerk pointed out, there's no way UHaul would know there was a problem unless a customer reports it and she did help us move our stuff between trucks. I was able to book the truck only the day before we used it, which most locations in Santa Cruz couldn't do. They have one of the larger fleets in Santa Cruz, which was great for us in multiple ways!

The young guy I dealt with was great - much better than other uhaul dealers. Give him a raise! Not this guys fault but the uhaul reservation process sucks - the clause of "your preferred pick up location and rental truck size" is just that - only an option. Uhaul central should be able to track the availablilty real time of all their vehicles not wait until the day before I am suposed to pick up the truck and tell me I have to drive 150 miles from the preferred pick up loaction to get the size truck I "reserved". That is nonsense.

Nice, helpful clerk, but I had selected a truck with a built-in ramp online, and when I arrived at the scheduled pickup time, there were no trucks with ramps available. I only had that day to make the move so I had to go to a lumber store and make my own ramp to move my stuff. Seems like Uhaul could have texted or called me or not let me select a truck that would not be there. Or maybe ALL their trucks should have ramps of some type? Seems like pretty essential unless you're Hercules. Would have been nice for there to be tie down straps in the truck, too. They didn't offer them for rent, either. But, the truck ran fine and got the job done once I had my homemade ramp ready!

I love your company - one of the best, most efficient, user friendly companies in America. I do wish I had known I needed lighting cords on my SUV to haul the trailer. I had to rent a truck as well.

This was the worst customer service I have EVER had in my life. I have told everyone I know NEVER to rent from Uhual again!!! I received a call in the afternoon from Andrea at customer service center telling me that I had no truck to move for the next morning. It was no fault to the locations I had to pick up from in lieu of having to drive over an hour in bumper to bumper traffic to Santa Cruz and Felton, just to have some sort of truck to move with!!! I will be posting on twitter and facebook how horrible this experience was and to NEVER USE UHUAL!!!!! Horrible customer service and lack for their clients!
