Employees seemed put off doing their job. Very slow service and rude

No one was at the 63rd street location when I went there even though they were suppose to be open. I ended up having to pay more than my original reservation for a smaller truck. Never using U-HAUL again.

When they tell you what they need, be sure to tell them if that is not what they rented. So it means adjusting the paperwork. Big deal. I paid $74 plus another $6 in gas for a truck I could not even use. Haven't been that angry in years.

The only problem I experienced was trying to return truck after hours. I'm not very technical. They wanted me to log in to which I did, then punch in return truck, which I did but could not get into that page. I took photo of gas and mileage like the instructions said. Tried to email for assistance, which I received an hour after returning home. I drove back 7am next morning to apologize and make sure everything was okay. Not sure what my issues we're.

The Uhaul was clean but needed mechanical work. Was unable to drive on freeway due to engine making noises, having little acceleration and shaking. The right front tire/wheel wobbled. The vehicle also had difficulty starting. Location staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

The trailer I used beat up my truck. It was if the hydraulic brakes kept engaging while driving forward. I tried to explain this to the employee when I returned it but he acted as though he didn't care and I am sure it was not documented or addressed for the next customer use.



super nice gentleman at the counter.

I was charged too many days. I've sent a message to the store manager, but have not gotten a response yet.

We made a reservation to pick up a truck at 10:30 AM. when we came to this location they said they didn't have our reservation or a truck. We had to drive to Ankeny and wait for a truck there before we could get to Cedar Rapids to start loading the truck. We did not get back to Urbandale until midnight due to our late start.

The gentleman were very friendly. They were super helpful in checking me in. Also answered my questions that I had too.

Poor customer service. Told the clerk what we needed and paid cash. Then was told by another clerk we couldn’t pay cash. (We recently rented a moving truck a few weeks prior and paid cash at that time without a card on file) Gave them a card to put on file “Incase of theft” as we were told. They would not charge the card. We were giving a “discount” for the hassle, paid the cash. Looked at our bank statement and was charged 2 separate charges. One for the same amount we paid cash and then a second for more ($75 something) over all just an annoying experience just to rent a truck and trailer for a couple of hours.

Employee Evette very rude, loud wouldn't help us or take out money helping other cust who came after us. As we walked outside to find manager she came running yelling like we were gonna take off without paying as she was yelling , bobbing her head her manager did not stop her, covered up for her as to who could handle register. ANd also charged me for a 3 rd day when I called saying we ere gonna be 15 min late, was confirmed I would not be charged another day. The worst experience ever I probably will never be back.



We received excellent customer service!! Pick-up and drop-off were a breeze.

At check out briefly explain the return checkout procedure-where to park, etc.. At return check in briefly explain the extent of steps before starting in lieu of waiting for instruction for each step. Why not create an instructional sheet of the final return check in outlining the steps and final cost computation.. Your checkout person was by the book and very efficient but absent any friendly attitude and approached everything as if it were a military exercise-this isn't the frick'in military.

This trailer needs to be retired. The straps were very difficult to work (age), there are running lights out, the brakes occasionally locked up (when not loaded with car), and the trailer is beat up. The staff didn’t ask if I knew about features of the trailer like the fender tilts to allow for car exit (although I knew about it). That said, I was not happy that the only trailer they had for my reservation looked like a piece of junk and I didn’t have time to make other arrangements.

When we booked this uhaul over the phone I gave my credit card and was told I would be charged x amount of dollars. Before pick up I called to ask questions and was told they did not take card information over the phone. I would like to know if there was miscommunication or who I gave my card information too. Other than that overall pleased with the service.

I was helped out by Ernesto (per my receipt)—what a professional! Quick, helpful, funny—not what you would expect at a retail/rental counter. He. Was. GREAT. Thank you!!!
