I had an awful experience this time around. I have used Uhaul on many occasions and have had no issues. For this particular experience, I was forced to drive in to Barrie to pick up a vehicle as they had nothing available in Alliston where I lived. I agreed to this reluctantly due to the fact I now had to pay for unnecessary mileage even though I was simply moving furniture into a storage unit 2km from my house. So this trip ended up being a total of 70km (Barrie to Alliston, 2 trips to a storage unit right by my house, and returning the vehicle back to Barrie). Once I completed this trip, I was charged for driving 117mi. This makes no sense and I was extremely frustrated. When I filed a complaint, my complaint got denied and I was still charged another $75. I do not trust this Uhaul location and I definitely do not recommend to anyone to use it!!!! My $20 receipt to fill the gas tank back up is enough to show I definitely did NOT drive 117 miles. That's absurd.

The 26 foot truck I rented was in poor mechanical condition. The key was very difficult to turn to start, the transmission would not switch gears properly (which caused excessive gas usage), the brakes were very noisy, and there was no gas chart in the truck. I did not feel safe operating this vehicle. In addition the computer system was down at this location which caused a bit of chaos for the individual working.

Tammy and the team take care of you from start to finish. From choosing the correct equipment for your situation to hook up, they are calm, funny and patient. Renting equipment is not always easy or a fun process. Whimsical makes it seemless and helps ease the pain along the way. For anyone moving or interested in renting a trailer, please use these guys, they never disappoint.

I have used UHaul multiple times over the years, and in multiple locations. I have lived in Barrie a long time and would rate this location the very best in the area! Fast, organized, courteous and professional! So nice to see a reputable Uhaul location in Barrie...this is the best one and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for a great experience.....both times I rented from this location this past week!

Overcharged. They mix miles and kms in the paperwork. I had 150km included (93m), drove 222km per tachometer (Barrie to Toronto return so checks out), charged 208km overage! Never using UHaul again, dishonest company.

Nothing can be said or done here to improve this location for the next customer as this location treated me very professionally right from the initial phone call to the pickup and delivery of the 15 foot truck that I rented. Their service was outstanding and I will DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone who wants to rent a truck in the future.

Excellent service, excellent staff, the front desk girl was particularly pleasant and walked me through all of this tech I don't understand with a smile. And when I phoned in for rates the owner took the time to focus all of her attention on me and only me until I felt completely sure about my experience, there were no silly questions! She paid me more mind than her own daughter I'll bet. 12 out of 10 would recommend this location to anyone who wants to feel like they really matter.

Great experience dealing with Whimsical Emporium Barrie for our motorcycle trailer rental. Customer service was excellent, from checking in to the gentleman that helped us get the trailer ready. There was snow in the trailer and he immediately shoveled it out for us. Then found ice under the snow and took care of that as well. Very friendly and helpful people. Also COVID protocols all in place which was nice to see. Its refreshing to experience great customer service and people that genuinely want to help!

In fairness to this location, due to the Covid 19 lock down the facility was not open but contact was made via phone to arrange the drop-off. It didn't help matters that there was a snow storm in progress.

I was charged for 2 days when I only used one day. The owner was looking into it for me to have the charge reversed but I have not heard back. It was rented from the Whimsical Emporium in Barrie. My number is (705) 716-1994 and my email is paulaus@gmail.com. I got the truck at 10am on January 12th, 2021 and returned it at 10:pm on January 12th, 2021. I just need a day credit given for insurance and the daily rate please 😀. This location was very friendly and it was great service on a side note.

Truck wasn't ready 20 minutes after the scheduled pickup time. No cleared from snow, no washer fluid, blankets ordered not inside the vehicle. I had to wait in -20 degrees cold. Assistant working at this location, did not have any desire to help or provide good customer experience.

The onsite check-in agent could have been more helpful and friendlier. We are older people and are not experienced nor comfortable with a lot of online technology. Your agent was inpatient with our inability to fully check-in solely with phones.

The trailer we rented was not adequately prepared for us, there was over 2 feet of snow inside it. When we questioned the employee, she said it was not her job to clean the trailer and we should have brought our own shovel. As my husband is a cancer patient, I did my best to clean the trailer out with a plastic childrens shovel that the employee finally provided, but our items ended up being damaged by the remaining snow. The employee was not at all helpful, and was more interested in her child that was at the location with her, and watching videos on a computer, than assisting customers. The electric brakes did not work on the trailer, causing some difficulty in transporting the load that it was rented for. The drop off was equally unimpressive, as the employee just came to the door, and waved us off, telling us to leave. We did not receive any documentation or invoice that the rental was complete until we communicated with U-Haul head office. We have rented from U-Haul many times in the past, but NEVER again.

Doors were locked when we arrived and we weren't sure what to do but spoke with someone on the phone and they told us to start hooking up. I was very happy that they had the requested trailer available as this is often a problem with Uhaul. A young man helped us hook up and we left. We had checked in online so we thought we were good to go. I got a call shortly after saying we hadn't stopped at the office to pay! I didn't think there was anyone in the office since the door was locked. It all worked ok though.

The first time I rented a vehicle from this location it had a leak and I was dripped on for a 2 1/2 hour drive. I was offered a $50 credit. The next time I rented a vehicle I told the dealer about my certificate yet it was not used on my transaction which meant I had to email head office to have it fixed.
