Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Moving & Storage at 34th St
all (3) staff were very friendly and professional; the dolly did already have a broken seal when we opened the truck to move our things; we were not originally going to use it (trying to save $ as much as possible with the recent unexpected expenses due to the flood) but we did end up using it .. THANK you to all who assisted.
Customer service was outstanding. Quick and very efficient.
My unit is on the second floor so have to use the elevator. The elevator does not stay open for more then like 10 seconds so it makes it very frustrating trying to load stuff in and out of it without it closing on you all the time
The people who work here are very nice. I like the price, and I liked being able to purchase packing supplies right on the property.
nothing at all, great service
Very nice lady that helped me with my transfer and move to new unit
I called the location directly, the phone system directed me to the call center without my knowing. the woman I was talking with reserved me a 26-foot truck at that location and took my credit card to reserve it. when I got to the location there was no truck reserved for me there it was 10 miles down the road Reserve at another location further away from my destination which put me paying another 20 miles of mileage at $0.89 per mile. not to mention the time to get it and get back to my crew. not only did I cannot agree to that but it was not even told to me until I got to the first location. by the time I finally got a truck which was only a 24 foot and too small for the job but at least a truck I had had a crew that cost me $150 per hour on-the-clock sitting on the job site twittering their thumbs for a hour and a half. you do the math what I lost there alone. furthermore I had to call another employee to bring my truck and open top trailer to carry the part of loaf that the other 2 foot of my Reserved truck would have carried.
I could get a truck cheaper from budget but normally get better service with U-Haul. if I'm going to get inadequate service with your company I may as well go to the cheaper company..
your incompetence to follow through on scheduling and are contacting me of changes cost me no less than $240 between labor and a second truck and unmeasurable expense of doing business.
I do not know if this would be considered constructive criticism or not but it is definitely criticism.
very sincerely Charles Cooper, Lizzie B's auction house
One of your employees was extremely rude to us. We will never return to this location because of him. He was an older African American man on April 16. He didn't help us at all and barked orders at us then threw the receipt at me. Hope he is talked to about this if not more
I changed plans and wanted to return the trailer back to Houston instead of dropping off in Mobile. Had to call several times to get that done. I was called several more to ask where the trailer was from the Mobile location. Made it difficult for me to change my plans.
aside from the lot being FLOODED, I guess NOAH was
more correct with an ARK vs A VAN..lol
thanks very much and you can count on me coming
back as soon as the FLOOD subsides..
dba Twisted Mister
keep the same friendly service and well organized.
The new manager Hannah is sooo lazy it`s pathetic, glad I was able to make it back before all my stuff was stolen....Thanks for nothing HANNAH

The location was neat and clean. Staff was attentive and efficient. Equipment was in excellent condition
Hannah Garcia is the manager there and does a great job taking care of her customers. Her employees are very well trained. Thanks so much for your help.
God bless Wisconsin but I'm moving to Texas...
Absolutely nothing. Your staff was awesome…..friendly, helpful, efficient, and knowledgable.
Clean the seats in cabin of truck. Lots of spots on material..don't know what they were from! I put a towel down...
Better explanation of fees
Each visit handled efficiently and professionally.
The young lady at the counter was great. There was a guy there before me who was just being impossible. The girl was very calm and maintained professionalism. I was impressed.
Is there anyway to maybe Paint the Trailer Hitches Yellow on the 1 bedroom Box-trucks? They hang out there and a motorist/renter isn't used to having one on the back of a truck in which you are loading and unloading. I banged my shins twice on the hitch. I think awareness of yellow paint might help.
I've been visiting this location for several months now, and wanted to say that Hannah Garcia has been fantastic. She's always prompt and provides excellent service. Because she's so fast, there isn't much wait when there's a line. When she doesn't have what I need, she readily picks up the phone and finds it for me.
Hands down my favorite U-Haul location and representative to work with!
I, think they have everything in perfect order, no need to improve thank you , guys.....
They helped us make sure everything was right and that we would be safe in our travel
the two ladies working there I talked with were both wonderful.
The manager young lady was rude. She has terrible customer service skills. The young African American lady who placed the trailer on the truck was super. Very friendly, very helpful. The other young lady needs to be terminated in my opinion. She had extremely bad customer service skills; very rude.
The location was fine but next time I'll just pay movers, it's a lot cheaper
A few years ago I rented a U Haul trailer and used it on the Toll Road here in the Houston area. I received an exorbitant fee from a 3rd party collector because I had not told the Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) ahead of time I was going to tow a rental trailer. Neither HCTRA nor U Haul had notified me that an extra fee would be applied to hauling a rental trailer on a toll road. The toll road camera got the tag number on the trailer, and apparently billed U Haul, which prompted U Haul to hire a collector to come after me without even notifying me they had been billed by HCTRA. I refused to pay it, and went to the Harris County Commissioner's court where I explained the problem to them. They told me that I would have to go to the State Legislature and submit a bill to change the law. Fortunately, the Toll Road people met me at the hearing because I had notified them that I planned to present testimony at the hearing regarding the abusive practice. They were willing to intercede and resolve the matter, which they did, but I have been nervous about towing a rented trailer on toll roads ever since, but so far, the incident has not been repeated. I just thought that you might like to know about this. The law is still on the books that allow U Haul to use 3rd party bill collectors who are using the law against both yours and your customer's best interests. It made me extremely angry. I rented one of your trailers a month or so ago, and used it on the toll road, but so far have not heard from HCTRA or a collection agency, so maybe HCTRA has waived the practice. If you know anything about HCTRA's current policy regarding this issue, please notify your customers so that they will NOT be surprised.
Fast service friendly personal
i had reserved a 10 ft truck and there were none available when i got there.
Nothing. Everything was clear. Were cool with returning 10 minutes late. Vehicle was just what I needed.
Courteous receptions and fantastic customer service from start to finish. Thank you so very much!
The truck had less than 3/4 of a tank when I was given the keys. No reimbursement for the full tank I returned the vehicle with.
I didn`t know it was a extra charge for access after 7pm. I don`t get off until 6 and then about time I get home its 630 so I cant make it there before 7. I thought 9 would have been the time.
The staff was friendly and check-in/check-out was quick
Please keep your rates the same in all areas.I went to another location located at Bissonet and Beechnut and personnel was very rude and unprofessional. There was a guy that had a name with the title of owner and one more guy dark skinned at the counter. The younger guy was very rude in the sense that didn't care I walked in and needed help. He was more worried about being on his cell phone and walking around pretending to be busy. I was quoted a price of $317 for a 5*8 trailer and they were charging me over $700 and the owner kept jumping in the conversation not trying to help at all. I was a paying customer and he made me feel like I was just lying. I called the other location to verify price and gave it to them and they still didn't believe me. People like the owner of that location gives a bad reputation to the company named U haul. I have been a customer for many years and I have never ever being treated with such disrespect and unprofessionalism as I was in that location. Be careful with the people you land and watch for the prices because they do vary and by alot. I still rented the trailer across town to save me the money that they were overcharging.
Everything ran smoothly. Thank you for letting me return the vehicle a little after closing time and not charging me an extra day.
everything was great and everyone was super helpful.
Don't rent out the trailer I rented. It fish-tailed during the whole time I drove it to my destination. I had to drop my speed to below 50 mph on more than a dozen times.
The trailer looked clean and in good shape, but had a problem for it to fish-tail like that.
After 30 hours of little to no sleep, they got me in and out quickly and back on the road so I could get my rest. They were great.
Allow speeds above 55 mph.
The truck was very old. 200+ thousand miles. The driver side door didn't shut properly.
Only to be sure to check lights before renting:) other than that the person that attended me was wonderful!
Only one person was working on Sunday, yet there were a lot of people in line. It took over an hour to get the trailer. Unacceptable. This is not the norm for UHaul, service is usually better and faster than that.
Very nice young lady and young man working at this location. Helped me with directions since Houston roads and freeways are always under construction. A very pleasant and easy return of my trailer. Thank you!
You no longer have 10' trucks regularly at this location, but when I reserve online it is still an option. Then when I get to the location my reservation is only for a cargo van. Luckily this time there was a 10' truck, but I had to drop off at a different location, meaning my car was stuck until I could get a ride.
The young lady who checked me in was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I was very impressed with her. Your system is quick and efficient.
Quick, easy, convenient and they even tried to call me when I was running late for my pickup.
A very warm group of people. Very helpful would use them again.
You did not give me what I requested and reserved online.
If you are not going to provide a truck at the location that i called you must state that before i make the reservation, believing i am getting a truck from the Uhaul 200 yards from my shop!
overall good experience. However, it would be nice to have access to an elevator. And the fact that you do not have much in the way of condition storage is a draw back.
Poorly designed. My 10x10 in tampa has a wide hallway and a garage-style door. This 10x10 has a 36 inch door that`s inside a narrow hallway. Too tight.
This was a great experience from start in Burnsville MN to arrival in Houston, TX. The staff at both locations were tops. I highly recommend the U Box.
It was very nice and friendly
Very convenient. Good hours and staff was especially kind and offered us water.
It took much too long to actually pick up the unit. It also didn`t fit everything we needed it to.
I had problems from the beginning with selling me a unit that was already in use, twice. Then I never received the emails for reminders after a while.
200 characters isn`t enough space to rate my experience. I had several issues with my truck rental/reservation as well as my storage reservation that were never rectified.
The box was 3 days late - your $50 a day refund is a joke! Plus I was overcharged by $63.00. Will never use again and will be in touch regarding refund of over payment.
Staff was very helpful.....
The staffs are very patience and took their time with me to do paperwork and moved the trailers to make room for me to drive through and let the staff removed the trailer hitch off for me.
jesus and fischer were awesome to my wife and i jesus was very nice he even helped unload some of our items and helped carry them to the 2nd floor for us. we greatly appreciated it!
Efficient, but far from cordial
Kasey was awesome and deserves special recognition for his superior customer service. His assistant also deserves recognition. I appreciate them both! Thanks
They recently upgraded to climate control without any prior notice until after the fact, when I received a notice that the rent would increase. This was unprofessional.
The manager had excellent customer service skills!!! Great experience!!!
Great experience over all...I like this place..!
This was the best customer service I`ve ever received! Lorraine was so helpful and caring. I`m so grateful to have meant this wonderful lady. God bless this lady she deserves the best and a raise
poor custmr srvc. 200 characters is not enough to explain. Was lkng for lng trm strg. Will not be here.
People were rude and when it was under construction the gate was left wide open.
My only compliant is you seem short staffed. Not one me but others did not like the long wait time
They need more employees,to speed up the process on costumers.The staff was amazing,but more employees.
The U-Haul facility located off of Mangum and W. 34th is always in spotless and excellent looking conditions, and Lorraine is very knowedgeable!
Excellent service provided
I had rat/roach issues several times. The electricity went out making it impossible to see. The staff was rude and hung up on me when they called to verify the unit was closed.
I will never rent here again, most unprofessional staff I`ve ever done business with.
Would definitely store here if needed in the future.
Friendly customer service good prices
The wait was not long, I was inout in a timely manner on the day of pick up. The office staff was very helpfulexplained all my questions asked at the time of drop off also.
1 box missing latch, movers would not wait, had to hire other movers, 2nd movers took 2 days. Was not a good experience.
Did not have a good experience with u-pods, not the location but with moving helpers and false info on your web site regarding how many pods required for a three bedroom.
Thank you, all staff was helpful, profesional and friendly
I was pleased with this facility
Read the previous comments!
There is always a space for improvement. It will be highly appreciated if you keep improving and set very high standards for customer care and services.
I would have liked to keep it longer, but it was too expensive. I wish you had some smaller units on the ground floor.
They were very flexible and worked with me the months i couldnt pay them....excellent
Coming from a small, agronomy town, I was apalled. I stood in line longer than unloading my things. Replace missing bulbs in the storage! You have forgotten respect and that customer are the profit.
Very well staffed,Mr. Rodriguez was a true joy during my leasing process.........
Mr. Jonas Rodriquez and his staff were always there for us if we needed anything or had questions. I have recommended this place to friends
Jonas was very helpful and informative. Overall a pleasant and easy experience. Thanks
The staff is very friendly and helpful. I appreciate that very much.
Folks there were very accomodating and friendly.
I was very pleased with U-HUAL Mr. Jonas Rodriguez the general manager was very profesiona .
Mgr Jonas Rodriguez was unprofessional and rude. He lacks of customer service skills. He is an insult to customer service professionals in any type of business. I will never again recommend U-Haul.
The only problem I had with this place was that the ceiling tile falls all over the boxes. You`ll find reasonable prices here on W.34th Street. This is an old and run down facility but its cheap.
Service was okay, but had to wait for someone to help me, there was no one in the store. Also code didn`t work on a couple of occasions.
I am blessed to have found this place! Employees could not have more helpful to me! They were GREAT! Thank-you!
It was a wonderful experience there, everyone was very helpful and funny.
Jonas is an asset to U-haul. Jonas is pleasure to deal with.
manager nad employees always knew who i was always made me feel comfortable and at home like family thanks, so much for that experince.
you guys have great and professional !
Great friendly people and wonderful location..
Great personel, too hard to get around the storage buildings, traffic jams, and no turn arounds.
Jonas was the most friendly, helpful person at a storage area I have ever dealt with. My unit was clean and ready to receive my contents.
there was always water at the bottom of the stairway...safety hazard. Also the unit was damp. Thankfully most of my belongings were in plastic bags because the bags smelled of mold.
PERSON WHO HELPED ME OUT WAS VERY NICE AND HELP FULL I WOULD ENJOY DOING BUSINESS WITH U-HAUL AS LONG AS THERE IS ALWAYS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL IN PEOPLE THERE STAFF
all went well... just not happy I did not get a refund for time unused.
I enjoyed the hospitality and service. Thanks.
The manager was very helpful!
The manager is VERY helpful and customer service oriented. The only problem we had was the big rental truck ... it is time to put this one out to pasture!
I had a PLUS exp[erience in this rental. Definitely, I will back to use their services and I will recommend it to my friends.
overall good experience, people were nice and helpful. Area isn`t great at night.
Jonas Rodriguez is the best. He worked with me through a very difficult time in my life. His compation and commitment to the customer and their needs is superior!
EXCELLENT! People far exceed service-friendliness exp’d at any U-Haul in many moves endured. Do NOT go U-Haul on 290-Fairbanks. Brandon was so rude we chose 34th St. UHaul - exp. was complete opposite
Jonas, the Manager, is very helpful and friendly. The storage unit was very clean and dry.
To say that Jonas was a very good manager is no question, Jonas was outstanding always there to help out with any problems. Thank You Jonas
Gracias por el EXCELENTE servicio..si llego a necesitar donde meter mis cosas sin dudarlo vuelvo a elegirlos a ustedes...y por supuesto que los voy a recomendar..GRACIAS!!
I was pleased with my experience at this location. It was close to my home at the time and served well for me as an extra closet.
the guy was helpful but it was time to leave so i had to get an outside storage to coutuie to have the movers to unload
Thank you so much jonas... Appreciate ther customer service and assistance from you and your staff.... Jose
new hires need more trainging
Jonas was a true proffesional.
STAFF WAS ALWAYS HELPFUL SMILED WHEN i WAS THERE.
STAFF WAS ALWAYS HELPFUL SMILED WHEN i WAS THERE.
they failed to notify me of a leak in the building. I had water damage to my property. Now they claim i didnt close my account.
the gate was open when I arrived to put my things in storage and it remained open alll afternoon, never closed behind me or any other customer.
checking out balance $54.95 although i owed them nothing as moved out on time and not willing to give me paperwork that said zero balance. Still trying to handle with Lisa Manager at 34th Street
Jason,was a complete idiot. The door was in poor repair.I had to put in back into the track.Jason kicked a hole in the wall to demonstrate that there were no bugs.I had a horrible experience.
when i rented my first storage room they did not give me 1st month free and when i ented my 2nd storage room they gave me 1st month free you still owe me for the 1st month free on the first storge
Very friendly and helpful staff.
I have to move quickly and your staff was very helpful.
this storage facility was very clean. the staff was very helpful.and Edward was very helpful
THE STAFF ARE TRULY THE GREATEST PEOPLE I`VE MET!!!!!
Emergency long business trip to China. Left storage clean empty unlocked. Repeated emails to inform them couldn`t call were ignored but got many harassing emails from same address.
I,ll like to get my last payment prorated and credit back to me .Thank you for the service you all provided me thrugh the years
no help after a theft to my unit.
service was faster this time i did not have to wait so so long to be helped and the guy that helped me knew what he was doing this time
Friendly staff members take time to help with concerns.
Beware of nails in the driving areas.
Computer errors caused unit lockout and blocked access code.
As this was my first time renting storage space, I think things went fairly well but somethings could have been explained a little bit better. Over-all I had a very good experience. Thanks
The door to my unit is broken and needs to be fixesd.
Only complaint is the entrance gate. Code is too hard to enter into storage areas and has to have it opened by staff on 2 occasions.
The residue from the ceiling in the storage room was all over my things. There is no elevator, and no A/C in storage areas.
too long to check in, an hour and 45 minutes!
200 words is not enough space to express myself - and it really isn`t worth the time. We have removed our stuff and will never rent from UHaul again.
Daniel the manager at the facility is the high point of this location. Outstanding gentlman!!!!!
Its convient and close by my house.I just didnt like that my mother had to have a e-mail address just to rent a storage
The staff was very friendly and helpful. To be more secure, there should be an coded access gate, and it needs more lights.
I was disappointed that there wasn`t any prior information on the website describing the lack of elevator for the self-storage buildings.
The staff was very unfriendly and sarcastic. I will not recommend to anyone and after when i move again i will not use uhaul.
I have been very please with my entire experience with U-Haul. I plan on being a customer for a long time. The customer service is the best not was but still IS excellent.
staff is not expart enough to handle the computer. took long time to fix everything. charged me $179.70 over. and then they said they returened this money to my account.
