Customer Reviews

The website was not accurate to what store had on stock and was a pain to get to the end and then not have the vehicle. I finally just called store direct.

The customer service rep was fantastic. Could not have asked for more.

Tony W. en


It was a little challenge because of the tight quarters and busy road in front of the rental address

Katie B. en


It took me 45 minutes of waiting to get a vehicle, even after I had a reservation and completed express check in.

I was very frustrated that the place I requested the trailer from was moved to another location across town. Even though they sent me an email, I didn't see it and went to the original place I had requested the trailer from. That location was on S. Ankeny Blvd. in Ankeny, IA. The clerk was very rude and abrupt. I pointed out that there was a trailer in his lot that was the size I had requested, his reply was that it was rented. I was a renter that was there, so I don't understand why that was not rented to me. U-haul's method of communication should be by phone or text, not by e-mail. I will look for other rental options next time.

All staff was professional and courteous

The young man that I checked out with first of all absolutely didn't acknowledge me for 5 minutes while I was standing directly in front of me while he was doing something else and then when he finally did ask if I was ready to go he thought I was turning in equipment and I was picking up a vehicle. He was rather rude very uncustomary service focused and when he asked me for a second phone number and I asked him why he needed it he very rudely advise me I either gave them a second phone number or I wouldn't get the vehicle. Now I'm sorry but I worked in customer service for more than 45 years before I retired and there is certainly a more diplomatic way of putting it than the rude way he did. On a second note the gentleman that checked me in was absolutely a delight. Very polite very kind very caring very good at explaining everything that was going on. Check me out asked me if I needed to have an email or paper copy of my final bill told me exactly what the final bill was going to have for a total and I was on my way. He was great.

The gentleman that helped me was very helpful and polite and informative. My only complaint is that there just is not enough room in your location to drop off equipment, I am not an experienced truck driver and have never hauled a trailer before so backing up is not something that I am overly comfortable with. When I came back to drop my trailer off people had just randomly left there vehicles EVERYWHERE and there was literally nowhere for me to go. It was pouring down rain and I was lucky enough that a couple of nice guys also trying to return a trailer helped me by hand-pushing my trailer into a parking spot. I don't know what I would have done if they hadn't come along as I was by myself.

Truck wasn't ready when promised. Then, they offered a discount for the delay which was OK, but charged us fully when we got the bill. I left them a message but still waiting for a reply............... i

only one person on duty, she did her best but had long waits, she offered a reduced rate but I don't see it on the bill???

Hire some people. There were like fifteen people in line to drop of and pick up and you were manning th e stror with one guy who moved trucks and one woman at the counter. When I arrived I could not even pull my truck into your location, which is on a very busy street. Then, I find out you don't have me in your system to drop off at that location, even though it was clearly printed out on our contract.

Understaffed. opened at 9:00AM all returned rentals blocked drive. Police officer came in and made people move vehicles. Took 1 hour to pick up a trailer. Employees should come in 1 hour before opening so they could function for the day. Extremely poor management and felt sorry for employees on hand that were set up to fail!

Nicholas R. en


Thank you

My reservation was for 8am. We arrived a few minutes late due to how difficult it is to get into the parking lot (you can only get in one way, we had to do a U turn, then couldn't get in due to the parking lot being blocked by other cars, and looped around again). There was already a few people waiting in front of us. We finally check in with an employee around 8:20. We are told the truck had been locked improperly the previous night, and that they were cutting off the lock. Finally, a few minutes after 9am, the truck is available. We had the truck rented for a total of 5 hours. I asked the manager if our rental would be extended due to the wait that was not our fault. He stated that we were late for our reservation (due to the location of the store, and the wait inside) and that we wouldnt be able to extend it because someone else reserved the truck for 1:30. We were not able to move all of my belongings in the less than 4 hours left after leaving the store, and ended up returning late. An employee called and was very rude about us being late, demanding we return the truck because customers were waiting. Funny how they didnt have that sort of urgency while I waited in store while they cut a lock off of the truck. Even if we had arrived BEFORE the reservation time, the truck wouldnt have been ready for my 8am reservation. I will NEVER use uhaul again. There was no apology, there was no "let me help make this better for you". It was all apparently on us because we couldn't get into the parking lot on time, not because the truck took over an hour for the employees to break into.

I originally wanted to drop off the UHAUL at the store in Des Moines and I did drop it off there. However, I recieved a call asking me to deliver it elsewhere. I had already returned the vehicle so I was confused as to why it's my job to do so? later getting a call saying it was late, but the guy at Uhaul hadn't checked my drop off in. And then he told me to deliver it in Urbandale, which means I HAD TO PAY MORE MONEY, FOR THE MILES I DROVE TO URBANDALE. that's ridiculous dude.
