I couldn't find a place to park my car when I came to pick up the truck. There were no parking spaces available.



Hire more help. There was one employee and three people waiting for pickups and one waiting for propane. He worked hard, but there was a long wait.



Online check in and rental was clunky. Employees didn't know the online process. Employees were slow to help customers.

I placed an order for a 4X8 trailer 3 months in advance at the UHaul located on Douglas Ave. in Urbandale, IA., and was assured they would have one for pick up on Nov. 30. They did not, but the home office directed me to the UHaul located on 63rd St. in West Des Moines. I was a little disappointed that I had to drive to a location that was further away to pick up the trailer I had ordered 3 months in advance.

When I arrived the Van I had reserved was not back, but the Giani at the counter got me hooked up with a truck that would do the job at the same price!

Poor direction from staff. & poor professionalism. I filled the tank full of gas & spent $40 the employee was like well, you only went 17 miles that's on you. I need another truck in a few days NOT going back

Next time you change my contract from one location (se14th) to the other one in Des moines the least you could of done was credit the extra miles I had to drive from pick up to place moving from..which is the reason we chose se14th in the first place. So we weren't happy about that which caused us to pay for over miles.



No complaints here got truck right away excellent customer service work out very well for me

Person who checked me in didn't really care if I was there or not. Not motivated yawning and lethargic. I requested an appliance dolly and paid for one. He did not load it in the van and I did not realize this until I arrived at the location I was moving a new appliance into. No was was I driving back to use up gas and be charged for both the gas and mileage needed to make another round trip. Extremely poor service.

Excellent service from Gianni.

tom d. en


Have more staff. Wait time was long. However, Gianni was great help all around. He is a shining star for this U-Haul location! He took his time and made us feel comfortable with the trailer. Fantastic resource for U-Haul - Management should do something to honor him.

I returned my rental 2 hours ahead of time and dropped the keys in gbe box. TWO DAYS LATER I recd a phone call stating Id not returned the truck and asking me where it was..... I asked them to kindly look out the front window tk see it parked there AND check the key deposit —- truck and key found! Right where I left them.

Improve accuracy of trailer inside measurements on Website. My main objective was to have a trailer tall enough to accommodate my refrigerator in an upright position. According to the dimensions on the UHaul website, I should have been able to do that. Unfortunately, the trailer was smaller and I had to lay it down. I would have rented a bigger trailer if I had known the true dimensions.
