Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Moving & Storage of South Towns
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
The woman working behind the counter was extremely helpful & friendly.
The lady at the front desk was amazing, and overwhelmed. the line was long. A lot of customers and just one person dealing with them. She was all the time with a polite smile. It is a very busy location, you should have 2 people and a third one for weekends. She deserves an special award..
I've recently sent in the following message for a dispute I initiated on 5/23/16, and received a PARTIAL refund on the same day:
"The entire charge has NOT been refunded.
You charged me $20.61 for the trailer on 5/18/16, the another $41.21 on the
Now my account shows TWO days of charges of $20.61 (on 5/19 and 5/20) when
only be charged for ONE day @ $20.61 (I rented tha trailer on 5/18/16, vide
supra, and returned it
on 5/18/16 at 5:15 in the afternoon OF THE SAME DAY).
I should be getting back another $20.61. That would bring the total pyment
for the ONE DAY RENTAL
to $20.61..... Which is what I expected.
I've rented previously from you people (one previous time was on 4/23/16)
and I rented the same trailer
just yesterday (5/25/16). Each time I am charged $20.61, tax included.
On the afternoon of 5/18/16, when I brought the trailer back, the girl was
overwhelmed with work and asked
if I could unhitch the trailer myself.... Which I did, and left it in the
spot I had taken it from earlier in the day.
She probably forgot to log it in, and it went un-noticed for two
days.....which is why we have this problem."
I expect this to be resolved shortly....Thanks
Great service. very efficient and polite service associate
Contract # 87202453
You're trying to charge me twice for the same rental of a 5 x 8 trailer on 5/18/16. The first charge was for $20.61; the second (dated 5/19/16) was for $41.22. I am putting a stop order on the second payment request. Why I can't do this via the local agent is poor customer service.
Personnel were distracted and did not load the trailer. We had to do the hook up.
Have the equipment available that was agreed upon with online confirmation. Plans are made and influenced by the size of equipment one believes thru are getting and agreed to. Also the location was changed to a destination 30 minutes further than original pick up location
Takes forever for someone to assist you and when they do they're miserable. Been here numerous times and each time it's been to rent a truck andriver has taken well over a half hour to do so and not one person ever apologizesince for such a long wait
before new mgmt there were no rent increases, new mgmt, 2 rental increases! no customer loyalty! increased late fees!
Great visit very accomadating and quick
Keep getting or updating trucks. I rented one this time with 16,000 miles, rather than 80-100,000.
Prompt and courteous at both pick up and drop off.
Long wait and no one came to unhook my trailer after 25 minutes. I went in and was told to o outside and wait. 30 minutes later, I went back in and waited inside for 10 minutes. when I got help they asked me how long I waited, I said 55 minutes. He said he had business. I said "aren't I business?" He said I cant help you. I waited for another 15 minutes for help. I was the first one there and the last one helped out.
waited out side at drop off 80 mins, for Uhaul to check me out while helping other people instead of me.
Always have a good rental experience at this location
The address did not show up on my GPS, no matter how I inputted it. (The invoice says S. Orchard Park, but the street sign says just Orchard Park. Neither worked.). I was in the area, so I tried to call the location, only to be diverted to a central answering facility. They finally connected me to the location, but the staff were unable to direct me from the location I identified. I stumbled onto the location myself. It was only about 1000 feet from where I was when I called the location to ask for directions!
Nothing, Everything went smooth and the process was very quick.
gave us hard time to accommodate us with the truck and time that we reserved online. Also, did not apply Military discount nor $50 off for not having the truck at the original store. Not a happy customer!
Great service, very easy.
Loved the fact that theirs a truck rental place avaible for people to move. Thanks again for being their. And for making it easy.
Very helpful, friendly people. Thank you
The price of the uhaul was extremely expensive to go where i went. I never received a confirmation in my email like the lady on the phone said i would so that really made me upset
Once again, I received great service and I would definitely recommend U-Haul to others.
Keep up the good work.
Attentive helpful staff.
Continue to give the personal attention to checking out the equipment..
I requested a pick up truck with a 7 pin electrical connector. The girl I spoke to said that all of the trucks have 7 pin hook ups. When I picked up the truck, it had a 4 pin connector. The guy at the desk said all of the trucks have 4 pin hookups. I had to pay extra to buy a 7 pin adaptor. I suggest either educate all staff about the electrical connections or provide adapt it's for use when needed.
Excellent Customer Service. Very organized, timely, customer oriented team. The team went beyond and above to assist us with the move. Very personable staff that makes you feel you are valued as a customer.
Words can not express how impressed we are with the service we were provided.
I just feel that other businesses could learn a lot from uhaul when it comes to excellent service and customer care. We are also thanking the team at Uhaul in West Seneca for referring us to the Moving Help through the Uhaul website.Thank you for all your help.
My complaints are not with this location but, uHaul corporate due to their system and having so many issues and having to go to a different location and then to fins out their system was wrong. The location I went to was great but wasn't the closest one and was in the complete opposite direction I was traveling.
Everything went very smoothly. They were great to work with.
I've been using the West Seneca NY U-Haul location for the past 20 years; about 1 - 2 times a year, lately. I've always found that they have the equipment that I need....even on very short notice (like 1 hour, sometimes). It's convenient, the place looks clean, the people are helpful and friendly. I'll be back !
Everyone was very nice and helpful. Thanks !!!
I originally wanted the location on Hopkins in So Buffalo. They did not have a truck available at that location but found a truck for me at the West Seneca site. The gentleman that took care of me in West Seneca was so friendly, explained everything to me. Overall both locations were very helpful, polite and great customer service. I appreciate everything both locations did for me and made my moving experience less stressful
very friendly and competent young girl worked with me. she is a keeper!
The unit rented this week, unlike the one a week earlier, was in ill repair...missing some tie downs and the rear door hanging on its hinges. The one the week earlier was very clean, had excellent tie downs and the rear door was perfect.
The only thing I didn't like was I ordered a bigger had to settle for smaller trailer by and for my inconvenience didn't even work on the price I was forced to take smaller smaller trailer because I was in a bind I need a trailer that day
When we arrived to pick up the equipment nobody was at the counter for the over 5 mins. we were waiting, so I went knocking at the doors behind the counter and someone finally came out. The drop off experience on Sunday was much better with efficient and friendly service.
Both sales associates who I spoke with were very knowledgeable, helpfull and extremely pleasant. I would definitely recommend this location in the future.
Great experience - smooth pick up and drop off!
Nothing,this store operated like a well oiled machine!
Nothing, the site was great. I liked the fact that their only business was U-Haul.
Not much to change, I had a great experience.
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
