The 20’ vehicle was parked between 3 commercial garbage bins on one side, cars parked in the spaces immediate to the left of the vehicle and a concrete wall 13 ft behind it. No way to move it. It took 2 hrs for us to be able to leave. The U-Haul agent on the phone told us the staff at the location would get the truck out. He admitted he could not drive it. We had to go door to door businesses asking for owners of vehicles to be moved and even then, a professional truck driver (stranger the staff asked to try to get it out) took 20 mins to get the truck out. When we called U-Haul to discuss that we weren’t getting the unit we requested, this one was disgusting dirty, and it was deadlocked in the agent in Regina was unhelpful and downright rude. Ultimately telling us take it or leave it and pretty much go to hell. The truck itself was disgustingly dirty. Has not been cleaned in I’d say months. No lock for the back (although we were given a key). The truck is in disrepair with balding tires. We took video and photos and video of all the damage to the truck and its state it were unable to upload them. When we called U-Haul to state we couldn’t upload them through the app we were sent to voicemail and told to leave a message. We did (Thursday) and as of today (Monday) have not heard from U-Haul rep. The entire experience was horrible. The female Regina representative we were put through to talk to when things happened upon pick up was the absolute worst customer service representative we’ve ever dealt with. We were glad it was us dealing with it and not our children whom we were moving to Calgary. On top of everything U-Haul contacted us prior to leaving numerous times wanting us to haul additional trailers to Calgary for them offering us ($50 compensation which wouldn’t even cover the additional cost of fuel it would take). Then while in Calgary we were contacted asking to bring it back earlier than we had booked so they could rent it to someone else. At this point, we will not be recommending U-Haul to anyone.

The U-Haul definitely needs a deep clean. It was sticky and covered in layer of dust and grime and crumbs in every corner. The customer service was poor, The woman helping us stopped what She was doing to help other customers at the convenience store multiple times to pick up which usually takes less than five minutes took almost 20. Would not recommend this location to anyone

The person couldn't figure out my name and they were telling me that they weren't expecting the drop off. They argued until I showed them my email confirmation.

The system requires data to be entered in Mile per hour which is not convenient for Canadian System although the vehicle system allows the driver to switch measuring units but when it come to drop off the website expects data to be in Miles driven not Kms which can be way higher and customers might be overcharged.

They forgot to include the blankets and dolly, but phoned to rectify shortly after. In the end I chose to just have those taken off my charge instead of returning to pick them up.

They worked hard to get me out because pick up location or online screwed up my drop off location. My initial contract showed spunkeys in Regina but in the system it showed my drop off as just another location in Winnipeg.

Windshield washer fluid is empty once i filled it was leaking. Driving on hwy from Regina to Estevan without windshield fluid in icy condition. Stop almost 10times to clean the windshield. Seems like uhaul is good option when u moving in same city or town but it is not a good option to drive different city. My recommendation improve customer service and maintenance.

If trucks are not going to be available at the location booked online, then please don’t make them available for booking!! If you cannot honor a booking accurately, the customer should not have to pay for additional days or mileage!!

The owners did not know how to operate the system/website very well, may have been more the website's fault than theirs. I myself had many issues with the uhaul website. I had to come behind the counter and help them with it.

My booking was with Uhaul of Regina. When I arrived there, they didn't have a truck, and I was redirected to Spunkys. Spunkys did not understand how to rent me a truck, they required me to enter my credit card information on their personal computer, and then they entered the dates of my rental incorrectly, causing me to be overcharged at my destination. They should not be renting out uhaul trucks.

Awful communication with the employees. Couldn’t speak English and obvious that they had never rented a uhaul/had no idea what they were doing. Took over an hour at location even with existing reservation and I paid ahead of time

I am not sure about the reason, but when I got the truck the UHaul system only gave four return sites for the truck I rented. This meant I had to travel a long distance to return the truck when then were several UHaul locations that were closer.

The UHaul was covered in bugs on the exterior and there was wrappers in the drink holders in the interior. The gentleman that runs this particular depot could use some training on the UHaul checkout and check in software as it took easily 2-3 times longer than my usual experiences to check out and check back in the truck. I spent nearly an hour getting the truck and over 20 minutes to drop it off.

We booked a U-Haul plus two dollies over two weeks in advance to moving. The day before the move-in date we received a call which stated we would have to pick up our truck from a new location (Spunky's), but still had to pick up our dollies at Park Street. Annoying, but not a big deal. She told me to go to park street before our pickup time for the truck at 4. So we get to park street around 3:30 to get the dollies, and they are all out. The lady at the counter was extremely helpful and called around for us to see which locations had the ones we wanted. Nobody had them, but a carwash had two dollies that were different sizes than we had requested. So we went to that location to pick them up, and were told we would not be charged for them. Then we rushed to Spunky's, our third location, to get the truck. The person working at Spunky's was new (not his fault), and did not know how to register us to get the truck. I informed him we already checked in online, (the lady who called me the previous day about our location change informed me that if I checked in online it would be super quick and we could just show up and receive the truck.) However, the employee was not sure what to do and was also the only one working in the store. We stood around for 40 minutes until the owner finally came down to help us, who realized we had checked in online and then gave us the truck. We returned it the next day, were told the total was 89$, and upon checking my credit card today we were actually charged 140$. Lots of hassle and very disorganized, will not book again.

They didn't know what was going on sent me somewhere else then after going to another location found out that this was the right location in the first place so Spunky's set me back by a day for moving and I lost my movers so had to find people to help because of Spunky's mistake! Not impressed at all with the lack of communication from this place and uhaul at all!

It took a very long time to complete the transaction as the rep stopped frequently to assist other customers. The return procedure was not explained to me which wasted time upon my return. Recommendation: After hours verification process should be explained to all clients.

The truck was terrible it was so dirty there was receipts from pst customers and had not been cleaned in a long time , windows were covered in bug guts which made it very difficult to see out the windows. The lock on the gate is compromised, you cannot lock it securely. The dealers gave very little information about the rental and process. The process took a long time because the dealer was going between serving myself and other costumer s in the convenient store while taking on the phone. The lack of mechanical maintenance on the truck made me fell very unsure about my safety while driving the trunk. This is not the type service I would expect from U haul. I have used your company in the past from other locations and was pleased with the services. This location is completely subpar for your company.

It took me more than one hour to pick up the truck, even though I had checked in online the day before. The people in front of the computer couldn't do what was needed to give me the keys until the called some support on the phone that the opened the rental contract and then send it to the store to have it printed for me. When returning the truck in the afternoon, even though I was returning with the same amount of fuel that was when I got it in the morning, they wanted to charge me 9.8 litres of gas. Wow, I used to truck for 26Km and they were wanting to charge me 9.8 litres. Or this truck had the worst mpg ever or they were thinking that I am dumb. I don't recommend.

I filled my tank to 3/8's of a tank and was only given credit for filling up to 1/4. I realize this is nit picking a little bit but it seems odd and unnecessary that I would have to pay extra for gas that I am not using.

I had an unbelievable uhaul journey... Started at snow hut in Moose Jaw where they asked for a $60. deposit even though I was to pick up the trailer 2 days from then in Regina from uhaul. I stood at that counter for an hour because that $60 was supposed to be taken there and not in Moose Jaw. So they had to cancel it and couldn't return my $60 they had to send it in the mail (which I still have not recieved and was the last of my money so I had to leave the last load of my families belongings since I didn't have the gas money to go back and get it which made the landlord keep the deposit because he had to pay someone else to haul it to the DUMP!) when they redid my application I had to give them $60 which put me out $120. in total! And then they sent me to Spunkys Confectionaries to pick it up I don't get why they couldn't just give me the trailer they were going to at the first place. My family has lost so much with this move and I will be going elsewhere next time!

I'd received a call (from the Park Street dealer) earlier that day telling me I would receive a credit if I could return the truck that day (was due the following day). When I told this dealer, he called the other dealer; after a short conversation he turned the phone over to me. I spoke with Greg --who identified himself as the 'area manager for U-Haul'. He assured me I would receive the promised credit, gave me his phone number if follow-up should become necessary. 2 days later I received an e-mail from U-Haul notifying me of an additional $60 charge for 'late return' !! Apparently this dealer didn't register the return in the U-Haul system until 2 days later! I called Greg --he assured me the charge would be reversed; and that he was working on delivery of the promised early-return credit. A couple days later I confirmed that both credits were on my credit card account. Greg's customer service was exceptional . . He answered his phone every time I called. He provided honest explanations --no excuses. And he delivered on his commitments.

The service was terrible. If I was U-Haul I would be embarrassed to have him as a operator. When the Regional Office advised me that my order was split and I had to use this location, I knew it was bad news. The operator suggested that I fill in the information before going to speed up the process. It took me 45 minutes to get the truck the Owner and his son could not operate the computer. Lucky for me a Supervisor out of WPG for U-Haul just happened to stop by to see how they were doing. In less than 5 minutes he had us on our way. I have no way to re-coup my lost time...very frustrating. You seriously need to review this operation.

I did not receive the dolly that I requested and paid for nor did I receive all the furniture blankets that I requested. There were 4 blankets in the back of the van that were wet and stinky. We had to drive to another location to see if they had any blankets (which they did) but was a real time waster.

It was probably not the fault of the employees at the location. But my check-in lasted more than 20 minutes, and this after I had done the online check-in "to speed up the check-in process and not exchange personal information at location". The employees had to input my driver's license and credit card again, and had to spend long minutes trying to get hold of someone from UHaul to solve some issue with my reservation.

I will never ever remt from uhaul ever again. 2 hours to get the truck. Trying to over charge me by a long shot. Double charging me, after I return the truck. I booked a 20ft, the person I talked to, booked me the 26ft, which was not available to rent out. I ended up with a 15ft, which took 3 trips to move all my stuff. Then I end up being billed twice for one move. I am very usatisfied with the way I was dealt with and charged.

I dropped the trailer off after hours. I called he following morning o confirm everything was okay with the drop off the girl said yes. I dropped he traile roff on Thursday then received a text on Saturday saying my trailer needed to be dropped off at a different location. Then I revived a voicemail saying my trailer was late and I needed to call immediately. I call the 1800 number saying I dropped off he trailer 2 days ago she's said she would call the other location and let hem know. I then received another call saying my trailer was being considered late as it was dropped off at the wrong location. My paper work stated I was to drop it off at the university park location so that is what I did if the trailer needs to be moved that should be on uhaul to move and not be made my problem.
