Wow, what a difference from several years ago when I walked away and promised to never go back. I rented from another location and had to go here to pickup. I will be back. Great people, at least the ones I worked with. I do not have to go out of my way to rent any more. Please keep up the good work.

They were on the ball. The guys made picking up and dropping off really quick and easy.

The service was fantastic and very accommodating.

The experience was fine, feel like there is some underhanded things like, the truck had 2 more miles on it than what the contract stated, which we only used it for 5 miles total, and the gas was indicated as full, but yet took 3 gallons to fill when I returned it. Overall it was fine.

If the person is a first time user of U-Haul then give a quick overview of the truck. Gears, Parking Brake, Using the lift gate, etc.

Very nice and helpful



Both men who assisted me on rental and check in and turn in were courteous and efficient. The cargo van was clean and very easy to drive.

I would like to compliment your team here. II disn't catch their names, but it was very busy and frigid outside and they were calmly handling everything. The site itself is far to cramped for your customers to easily navigate in my opinion.



Everything was great! Brian was very helpful and efficient!!!

Give your new help a mentor to guide them through the learning curve. He was doing the best he knew how but didn’t know where to disconnect the trailer in your crowded parking area

I can’t say on improving. I do appreciate a guy named Jeremy. He helped me out 1st thing as they opened. He got me taken care of fast and out the door. Very professional. I got the same treatment at the return. A gentleman helped me fast and was polite. I did not expect this great treatment! Well done!

Bruce D. en

Great customer service. The employee helped with everything I needed and was very nice. Will use this location for any future needs.

I did the self service to get my truck. There was something wrong with it, and I couldn’t take a picture of the driver. So that turned into a 25 minute phone call. The woman who helped me, Leann was great though. She was able to fix the issue and stayed on the line with me while we finished the process in case there was something else wrong. Drop off was awful. I guess everyone decided to drop off at the same time. We couldn’t get our personal vehicle in there. Again the guy who helped us was nice enough, but the location wasn’t great and the set up was super congested. I hope I never need a uhaul again, but if I do, I’ll prbably go to a different, bigger location. And avoid the self service app and talk to a real person face to face.

I dropped the trailer off after hours, so no direct interaction with the employees. I did get a confirmation of my return first thing the next morning, so great job with that.

Staff was great

People were great but they were under staffed.

This location was excellent however the rest of my experience was terrible and that is being more than kind. Original pick up location was not available. Second location was closed when we arrived to pick up the trailer. Nobody called to inform me that they would not be open at the time in which the original reservation was made. I tried calling the original Grimes location and was cut off on the first phone call and then called back at least 5-Times and got voicemail for all of them calling from morning to evening. I did leave a message but nobody called me back. Poor customer service to say the least. Ended up drive several extra miles and delayed my moving by over two hours. Thankfully Urbandale was over the top in customer service. This was by far the worst experience overall. Thankfully I have other options when renting for the future.
