Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Moving & Storage of South Towns
very efficient and friendly.
The U-Haul was leaking oil which left spots on both my old and my new driveway which I didn't see until moving the truck. I let the U-Haul team when I returned it and she just told me that's not good.
Didn't have the truck we reserved, but upgraded us to a bigger truck at no extra charge.
I was very troubled when after I picked the truck at 10am I was told I had to have it back by 2pm??? I was supposed to pick it up at 9am but had a delay. When I picked it up I asked why 2pm?? The girl said well actually you need to have it back by 1pm cuz we estimate 5-6 hours for a move. I said ok so 2-3pm then?? She said no cuz we have another reservation it needs to be back for. So I had to rush through my move and didn't finish. I've used u-haul to move 4 times....never again...I've never been held to such time constraints...ever...extremely dissatisfied...former customer..
The rates were not explained at all. Is the truck rate per day? Per 12hrs? What I was charged made no sense
The rental was easy to return and the assistant manager was responsive to the issues we had regarding the truck and tow dolly.
Very articulate and thorough representative who handled the transaction from start to finish with extreme efficiency. No need for improvement here. This agent could well serve as a role model for any franchise.
Both times that I was in it seemed as though the location was understaffed. I feel bad for the employees because they are working as fast as they can. It probably would be beneficial to have people designated for certain tasks instead of everyone doing everything (checking people in, cleaning vehicles, cashing people out, etc). Again, I don't blame the employees because they're working hard everytime I've been in. Management should consider staffing up during morning hours when people are coming in to grab their gear for the day.
You have a kind and caring staff in Orchard Park. Great experience! Loved the van - easy to drive.
Not overcharge for gas; returned the truck at the level received...if your going to estimate gas. Then all trucks should be sent out full....so there is not a grey area.....goes out full. Comes back full.....I filed a dispute and do expect a correction....thank you
The bait and switch on the vans is very sad. I called central in Atlanta and reserved a van with a price quote of 308.00 per week. Picked up the van and it was over 500.00 per week.
The attendant went to clean the drivers door window and she made it worse. She did not even check that the glass was sticky and the other windows were also dirty. I would like to have had the windows clean before the truck was brought up for my use.
Dealt with this Location several times over the years and always get Great Service!
Jill was a pleasure. We also needed roadside assistance for a stuck roll up door and the technician was prompt, friendly and efficient. A very good experience with my rentals.
Effortless. Good equipment and service. Nice people.
This whole experience could not have been any better! Everyone was friendly, helpful and efficient!
I had a very good experience renting a truck from U-Haul. I will use U-Haul again if I need to. My one complaint is that the customer service representatives gave conflicting and unhelpful information while I was trying to rent the truck. I called several times before renting, and each person had different information about my request to rent a truck for 2 days. Renting via the U-Haul website was restricted because I needed a truck for more than 24 hours. Rental process was awful as I was given different answers from each person I talked to, when all I wanted to do was rent a truck for 2 days in town. But everything was great once I picked up the truck, and the employee who helped me when picking it up was very helpful and well-informed.
Everything went well, from pick up to drop off. Staff was very helpful and courteous.
staff was friendly and efficient.
NO a thing went smoothly employees were friendly and knowledgeable
Excellent service from Brenda at this location
make shore that you have them put the unit back in service asap or you will get a call from them that it was not returned on TIME
Excellent service and personnel. Vehicle was new and clean. No problems. Made moving a breeze. Thank you sooo much.
Customer service could definitely use some work. Questions were not answered clearly and worker seemed to have little knowledge on the equipment. We were overcharged for the mileage despite taking pictures as proof and required a refund. The equipment was clean and well maintained but the employees need more training.
The person who checked my van in when I returned it failed to check it in. I received a call that I never returned it. This was bad customer service.
I WAS SUPPOSED TO PICK UP MY RENTAL IN NIAGARA FALLS NOT ORCHARD PARK WHICH IS 30 MILES AWAY !!!!!!
Jill, Stacy and Bill were very helpful and resourceful in resolving an issue that occurred in the call center. The S. OP staff provided me with excellent customer service.
Everything went very well. Easy rental online, seamless pickup and drop off, great equipment.
I had to spend about an 1 getting a trailer ready to connect to my truck only to find out it had faulty equipment on it. Have the equipment tested and ready and don't make your customers do the work.
Brenda and Jill are such sweethearts! Everything with the rental went so smoothly, and this was a super great experience.
Nothing at all fast and they experienced thank you
The staff is always courteous and I am in and out promptly. Always recommend OP to my friends and family.
Friendly, helpful, very good experience
Have a check in line for people checked in early
Nothing! Awesome experience!
Convenient online reserving was so easy. Was able to call the store and make a change with no problem. All paperwork is readable and very easy to understand. Great experience!
Better improve no trouble problem thank you
The week before I rented a truck in buffalo to bring all my family’s things camping for the week. everything went great that day I thought to myself I would do this every year it was very convenient . then I got a call about the reservations on this truck and told it was the closest location to me. I was aware that the location that I dropped the truck off may not be the same place I was going to pick one up but I didn't think I would have to drive an Hour and fifteen minutes to get it then drive back to camp then another hour and a half back home. I was informed that uhall had no trucks and was overbooked this weekend. as a trucking company I find that an issue. I did get the truck and got home safe and sound. other than the long ride to pick it up Saturday I would do this every year.
We dropped truck off when they were not open so I cannot rate them.
To improve nothing at all every thing was very fast and smooth
I have learned my lesson from a previous experience, where i wasnt able to go rent a truck on a day i needed it. So this time days before i needed a trailer i made reservations. My reservations said i could have it till 6pm. Everything was going smoothly until 2pm. A uhaul employee started calling me saying how she has a customer waiting for it to come back and that i needed to get it back. She processed to keep calling multiple times. My first time trying to rent a truck no employee called a customer asking to return a truck for me instead they just told me there was nothing they could do for me so thats why i made sure to be prepared this time around. Its not my fault someone wasnt prepared. And once i did get back to the store she sat on the phone wouldnt acknowledge me and after 15 mins of me waiting she said in a very sarcastic voice saying im done i can leave, but i wasnt cause i wanted to pay in cash. So then she processed to say i needed to find a guy on the lot to see of he put it threw there system already she said she was to busy on the phone. Once i walked around the building found the guy i also saw they had another trailer(the exact same one I had) just sitting there. She also kept saying how the customer was sitting waiting for me, he wasnt there. Terrible customer service on her end.
I would like to be notified that the size truck I wanted was available earlier.
More associates at check-in would be good. the wait wasn't too long but it was long
IT WAS MY FIRST TIME RENTING UHAUL MY CUSTOMER SERVICE REP WAS BRENDA WHO WAS EXCELLENT IN HELPING ME.
I can't even express how unprofessional the counter associate was. I came at 5pm and told the associate i could have the uhaul back by 6:30, he responded by quietly saying "Bring it back after 7, then I don't have to clean it!"..........seriously? Then when asking if we needed any equipment I said no & he said "Oh good that means I don't have to haul anything". Isn't this what this person was being paid for? Maybe because we were close in the age of early 20's he thought that was appropriate? What a joke.
Quick and easy, Employees on pick-up and drop-off were great.
Easy rental, very personable young lady.
They said they would send me an email receipt. I did not receive my receipt?
Keep on with the great job. Maybe give out free bags of unmarked money!!
Van & Customer Service great :)
Not so great...VERY upset with final bill :(...
RE: told by rez @ 800 number it would be one price with mileage & days booked...& final bill way beyond quote :-/.....UGH !!! Won't be back
Truck was ready on time and in good condition. Excellent customer service on site.
Quick, easy, efficient drop off. Easy locale, and great staff.
Soon as I pulled in an employee came out went through truck and was very polite and helpful.
Your staff was more then helpful they were excellent taking the time to get me the right vehicle needed for my particular needs.
Very well pleased with the expeariance and end results.
when i picked up the truck i took it fill it with fuel. while checking out the cab i found what looked like a crack pipe! being i was taking this truck over the Canada border i was highly upset!! because of you're poor maintenance i could be jail in Canada!!!! NOT HAPPY!!!!!!!
Great experience. Right equipment at the lowest cost ! ??
Just couldn't have been easier. The folks who helped us were wonderful, and the whole process was a snap. Thanks.
Customer service was quick and good. Rented a pickup truck, truck was brand new. The interior of the truck was disgusting something was spilled in several spots and it's obviously never been checked, let alone cleaned. For a truck that only had 2200 miles on it, that's sad.
My only complaint was that the cab of the truck reeked of cigarette smoke. I understand that this is almost impossible to avoid. Everything else was very good; the service people were friendly and helpful.
Everything was great! Customer service, the truck, we were very happy
The first truck I was to take had an issue with one of the bumpers. The representative Brenda took care of the issue and gave me a different truck right away!
staff polite, friendly and informative Easy, affordable and great vehicle
Everything went well. People were friendly knowledgeable and fast.
Car dolly brake lights and directional a didn't work. Should've conformed this before leaving the store. Manager was very helpful showing me his to use the dolly and get the car on and secured!
The general manager was very nice and knowledgable. A pleasure to work with.
My only suggestion would be for the rep To take an moment going over the truck. For the life of me I couldn't get the mirrors adjusted, and it would have been nice to have the tow/haul button pointed out & the fuel efficiency meter. these were new features to me & it would have been nice knowing about them before driving off the lot.
Your employee Jill at this location was very helpful and very polite even though she was the only one working in the store. We were very satisfied with our experience!
The location was fine-- it was everything leading up to that point that was TERRIBLE. My reservation (#89154178) was switched multiple times, finally my preferred pick up on Southwestern Blvd was scheduled and arranged after speaking with an agent on Saturday evening (in which I received email confirmation everything was a go) just to get to the location at 10am on Sunday and the location was CLOSED. I called Uhaul in a panic and the young lady I spoke with had ZERO compassion over the situation and frankly her customer service skills could be improved upon, I felt like I was in inconveniencing her by calling. I was then rescheduled for an 11 o'clock pick up and given a 20ft truck since there were no 15's available in Orchard Park that I was advised would 'as a courtesy' be given to me at the cost of my original 15ft truck both over the phone (which was suppose to be noted on my account/reservation) as well as in person only to be charged the full price for the 20ft truck, I haven't even bothered calling for my credit/refund because it has been such an awful experience. I will never use the Uhaul service again.
Nothing. Staff was great.
Employee was very kind and knowledgable about equipment. A great help in unloading car.
Clean, helpful, customer centers. Two thumbs up.
The pickup truck had very low milage which was a surprise. Howeve, the seat was stained already, the out side was dirty and the cab had a very strong Oder of cigarette smoke which bothered my sinuses and made my clothes smell like smoke. As a non-smoker I found it to be very unpleasent.
They argued with us over our gas mileage saying it was not where is was supposed to be. It was exactly there! Totally ridiculous. Then suggested we can pay 18.00 if we'd like. It was not ok. So we had to go to gas station put $5 more dollars in it and add MORE miles on it. Never again. I'm moving in 3 months again. It won't be with Uhaul!
I've always heard negative things about u-haul, but found I received excellent service. We had the truck when it was needed, and staff was extremely helpful. Thank you!
Don't change a thing...smooth operation overall and very efficient!
The man helping me out was not very friendly. I guess he was just helping out at the location for the day but he was not comfortable to be around. I don't know his name but it was on the 15th. Everyone else was extremely friendly and helpful.
rented twice, no problems
The trailer leaked all over are clothing. Very upset with the trailer. Would like a refund
Have equipment in working order and live up to ciommitments with regards to schedule. The Orchard Park location failed with every regard.
Friendly and fast service!
It was a great place to go ,fast and the gentleman who took care of me was very respectful and polite , very fast I was out of there in 10 min!!
called to check on reservation, was told truck i reserved over a week before my move was not available, i called uhaul and they contacted the location in which they did have a truck available for my move, the first time i called they hung up on me, then told me none were available, so i called uhaul and they fixed that issue, very disconcerting to think you have a truck for your move and then day of they tell you no we dont .. will not be using this service again.
Excellent experience. Fast, friendly, professional service.
The experience was exactly what I expected.
The woman that took care of my order was really nice and apologized for the wait. It seems that the manager was suppose to be there but was not at the time I picked up my van. I felt sorry for her in that she had all these customers and no help. I was taken care of in a professional and efficient manner. I would definitely give her a raise or a bonus for being so in control considering the number of customers she had and no help.
It took a long time to find my order, and was in there for well over 20 mins
waited out side at drop off 80 mins, for Uhaul to check me out while helping other people instead of me.
An elevator would be very beneficial.
I just want to comment and give much recognition to the staff at this location. A special thank you goes to Matthew Shueler. Please make sure he is praised and given the much recognition he deserves.
Service was great, everything went well.
Reserved a 10x10 online and brought the email with me confirming it to be told was not available. Now in 10x5 which does NOT fit my needs. I have more to put in the storage room and nowhere to put it
One comment about Uhaul service in general. I have had issues with more than one location when calling. If nobody answers, you get transferred to someone in another state who can`t assist as well.
I called and asked for 1st floor availability for 10x10. When I got there they rented me the room and THEN found out it wasnt useable because someone had locked it. terrible service
The staff at the orchard park location was very professional, efficient and attentive.
I was told that my box was going to be delivered on August 26th, but its not coming until Aug 31st which is my first day at my new job.
Horrible experience. Staff were clueless, couldn`t get anything right. No lights or blown lights, floor uneven making it hard to move anything heavy, also description of unit completely wrong
very nice place and very friendly staff
Staff were helpful throughout
Orchard Park and West Seneca people were very
helpful and took great care of boxes. People were very helpful
Thank you Stacey and Matt
Terrible service. Long wait every time I`m in store. Manager threw a hissy fit when customer questioned him. Took 3 days to get a trailer I ordered. Only reason I`m still using uhaul is its cheap.
Facility was clean, vehicles,well maintained and new. U haul employee was very slow and when moving and on a schedule it can be quite a burden.
Everyone was very friendly knowledgeable whenever I inquired about anything.
Should prorate storage space or at least let customers know that you do not prorate
I`m always happy with the staff and service at this location. Thank you for being awesome! :
Storage area flooded- some furniture, boxes, etc. covered in mildew. Manager did nothing but refer us to U-Haul`s insurance. Staff friendly - not fully helpful with problem of flooding.
I needed an extra ubox and uhaul got it for me on a sunday. I wad very impressed with their efforts.
This facility is one of the best and I have used uhaul since 1987.
The storage room I rented for over 6 years was well heated and lighted with very easy access anytime I wanted. I was totally satisfied.
Glad I was upstairs when the flood hit.
UBox was adequate for my needs. Would have liked a sturdier back door.
Plywood door seemed a bit rickety.
The lady who greeted us, signed in our truck, and directed us to storage unit was very helpful.
They shipped my u box out quick and easy.
The staff and management were excellent...knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. Dealing with them was a very pleasant experience. Thank you.
Friendly and courteous staff make anything you need an enjoyable experience.
My original phone contact gave false information. Store Manager excellent.
It would be helpful if you would identify the central help desk. Every time this happened, your people were very polite, but it took more long distance minutes.
received an emailphone call notification after I personally found out they were here had been for 3 days. Although to try redeem themselves they let me empty the boxes inside instead of in the rain.
Everyone on the staff there was friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make this easy and affordable.
although we rented storage space for only one month, I would use Uhaul again because of the helpful staff and secure indoor facility..thank-you Deborah Burch
Dorisha Rodriguez was amazing and helped me store my 200 penguins,
Your staff at this facility were very professional
I have some contacts over the storage rental period and received nothing but excellent service. Christian Butler went above and beyond with his service.
was not informed that the storage unit was up 10 steps. no elevator in building. zilch customer service initiative on employees part. won`t be back.
The staff was great and helpfull over all I would use uhaul storage again
Great facility everyone on staff was knowledgable, helpful and courteuous units were clean and easily accessible would use them again if needed!
They were very helpful and the manager was the best
I had a very good experience with uhaul storage.
Professional, friendly and timely. Much better than the receiving end of my shipping.
I was and still am very pleased with the service i recieved
Usually only one employee had to wait to get access, nails and screws on ground in back parking area, should have easyer access
The staff-excellent customer service. 1st month free-no strings attached
-wonderful plan-saved me hundreds of $$ plus great fees on truck rental. Definitely will let others know about your services!
Everything was fine except no padlock was with the ubox when delivered. Key is being mailed to me.
Staff was very friendly. Would help to have elevator to 2nd floor like other places.
Staff helpful and kind after a very long road trip.
I was always impressed by the staff at this U-Haul location. I would recommend this facility to anyone.
Ryan@the u-haul is a great asset to you business. He was helpful,caringand helped in evry aspect of our move. thanks again Ryan
Just forget we were ever there!!!~
The staff was always so helpful. I have been a customer for almost 4 years. I had to relocate my unit b/c I was paying too much. I found another facility that is charging me $46 for a nice size unit.
I was promised ground floor storage but there wasn`t any open. The first storage bin offered had oil in it. Employee Ryan was unhelpful. Was not happy I had to buy a lock.
There was a cust unloading, and I knew this cust was over his head. When I asked the following week, your desk person told me he helped him unload, and worked a pay-forgive deal. Anyone can call me.
The units don`t have lights inside and are hard to cart your belongings to.
The two U-Haul rep`s at different times that waited on me were helpful and understanding of my requirements. I set up a storage room rental and will be setting up a truck rental for next month.
the manager forgot to remove my name after I did clean up the storage on june 23rd.
The service was great and i hope that the new manager will maintain the facility`s good reputation.
Would have appreciated a light in the storage unit but over-all very positive experience and helpful staff. Thanks for everything.
Carolin who works there , she has a wonderful attitude and she is very thoughtful person and is eager to help with our needs... she did a superb job... ok thanks..... Betty McGough
