I was unable to return the item myself because of "500 internal server message error" using the app. Using the website it couldn't get my location even with location services on and allowing the website to get location. I had returned the item at 815pm the night before it was due and was unable to return the item using either app or website. Both items need user experience improvement.

No customer service. Door was locked during regular business hours and we had to walk around the back to find someone to help us. The vehicle was filthy dirty in the cab and owner left us during inspection for us to fend for ourselves. I was glad I had rented before and knew the process or it would have cost me in the end. It's to bad I

It was impossible to complete the self return with my phone even though I followed the instructions. So Monday morning uhaul was calling us while we were at work wanting to know where the truck was. Other than that it was a very good experience.

We ordered a dolly and it was not included or available, which was disappointing. No one told us it wasn't in the truck and we had been counting on it. We also had trouble with getting the app to work in order to even get the truck. After waiting almost an hr, customer service was able to help us through the app glitches. Thankfully, Uhaul reimbursed me for the dolly after I requested it.

Small location at a garage. Only owner was able to check me out and he was using his mobile phone. This process was very slow and had to be done twice. Total checkout time was 45 minutes too long! I reserved (3) sets of moving pads-he only had (8) pads to give me, blah, blah, blah, “regional shortage-COVID-19”. Total UNSAT! Checkin in was worse. Attendant said use the U-Haul.com website to check in. Your website check in is designed by idiots. Attendant told me to drop key in the lockbox then check myself in-guess what? I needed the keys to take (4) different photos and literally become one of your employees, doing their job for the same price. Terrible experience, partly yours (website) and Shawn's AutoShack.

I have concern about your virtual check in process. First the connectivity is poor at it freezes and will not let you finish entering info, say timed out and start again. Are is the customer supposed to secure rented dollies, pads, etc. if you don't lock the cargo area and come back anyway to finalized the bill. Although they provide UHAUL service, its not really there primary businesss as the hours and response to questions I had.

I have been a customer for many years renting equipment as needed This time the app was not updating information and made pickup very bad experience I have a reservation in Milton F L on 08/03/2020 for a auto carrier and hope picking up hose a lot smoother

The 24/7 pick up process was cumbersome. I previously uploaded my license but had to do it again. After 5-10 mins of waiting approval, I had to go to online chat to get someone to review my request. The truck pics displayed were from the previous customer who had a trailer and a full cargo load and was asked to verify this was current condition. I had to retake and submit those pics. The entire process took over 20 mins and should have taken far less. I was told the link would not be active till designated pickup time so arriving early would not be beneficial. Check in process was easy. Uhaul asks you to agree with all terms and conditions of contract during pickup. The contract must be 7-10 pages long. To review this entire agreement during pickup is unreasonable. Why not send this document at time of reservation. Notices on the truck say refer to the agreement to determine amount of fuel needed to fill tank to same level as pickup. Why not post a chart inside the truck for easy reference.

The UHaul website is broken using the vehicle trailering menu. It won't let you select a saved vehicle or when you put "add new vehicle" give you menu to input vehicles. I had to be logged out of my account to set up the towing and towed vehicle. Also, the credit car processing system was non-operational. These do not reflect on the location but on UHaul's corporate site. It is not user friendly. I did not try the App for reservation so I have no comments for it. However, the app worked great for returning the equipment.

I had to go to 2 different places to get the car dolly. The first place I was contracted to had one but it was broke down and had been for several weeks but your computer system showed it was serviceable but it wasn't. I was then sent to Shawn's where he had 3. Shawn's was fine. But I cant say much for U HAUL corp. $50 Guarantee of having the equipment .

Unable to drop off as scheduled due to poor employee attitude and lot maintenance. After involving another employee still had issues with dropping off vehicle due to poor resource management of lot."too full" manager final allowed us to drop off vehicle. Complaint filed with Customer Service and local Field Service Manager- awaiting response. WILL NOT USE OR RECCOMENDS this facility Shawn's Auto Shack . Stay away recommend L'Orange in Niceville.

It took over an hour to pick up a tow dolly. We put everything online, and still had to repeat almost everything to the owner. Then trying to check the dolly back after hours was very confusing I finally called the 800# for help. Not very happy, need more work on the online checking

Even though I used the on line app to fill out information ahead of time for the rental. It took a very long time to actually rent the truck. It may be due to training a new person but speed to rent was not a highlight. Everyone was pleasant but speed was not a top priority.

The only problem I had was logging in to finish our our return of the van. the message went to fast and we were unable to go through all the steps to log in the return of the van. I was very frustrating and we were unable to complete what was requested. I hope we will not be charged an extra day because of it.

This location was at a cycle and possibly car shop and the people were working out back so it is hard to get their attention. Also there's really no waiting room or place where you can walk up to an employee in the front part of the building. Everybody was very kind and helpful however.
