The van's odometer reading was 1703 miles at start. However, the printed contract stated it had 1701 miles at start. So I was ripped off by $2.18 since it costs $1.09 per mile. Although losing $2 is not a big deal, it's the principle that counts... not sure why they don't check their equipment's odometer before writing up contract...

The staff is on time. They are very focused on getting you going. They work extremely well in the mornings. Maybe the trucks can be wiped down a little more often so they are not as dirty. I rubbed against the truck and almost regretted using the compay because the truck was that dirty. Otherwise, I will use the company because of their punctuality.

My truck didn't have cold a/c, in fact, it blew out warm air. That's pretty rough considering I was moving in the South where summers are very humid and high temperatures. Also, the brake light paired with a loud buzzing sound came on whenever I applied brakes. This experience is not shocking in the least. A few weeks ago I rented a UHual truck and auto transport. I drove from CA to GA. During this venture, I lost a wheel on the trailer, made several stops to purchase oil for the engine, and was broke down for two days after the water hose busted and the engine ran hot. The trailer set me back about 4 hours as I had to wait for a trailer to be delivered. The entire wheel fell off the trailer while going down the highway; fortunately, my vehicle was very secure as that would have led to several deaths. I called UHual and explained to the rep what had happened. I clearly stated that I needed an entirely new trailer because this trailer was damaged beyond repair as the frame was touching asphalt. Well, apparently he thought he knew better than me, the person on scene, and decided to have the local shop bring me just a wheel. The local repairman stated that I needed a new trailer as soon as he arrived(observing the damage). I explained to him that I had informed the rep I spoke with on the phone that I needed a new trailer. I asked about the oil light and low oil level and was told to just add oil whenever it needs it. I didn't pay $3k for a lemon or at least I was hoping I hadn't. Towards the end of this long journey, when the water line busted, I was set back two days. I had to practically beg for compensation of time lost. All in all, my experience with UHual has been horrible. I'm thoroughly convinced that UHual doesn't care about the maintenance nor safety of their equipment so long as it's running and they are making profit. Looking back, the wheel falling off could have been a huge lawsuit. The bearings in a trailer need to be changed periodically. Along with this, so does the engine oil(which was black). While UHual is the cheapest, I'm sure they are yielding the highest profit margin because the money definitely doesn't go back into the maintenance of their equipment. Next time, I'll go with Penske, Budget, or some other company besides UHual. I'm sure this review won't go public as the disclaimer on this website reads "Your comments will be posted for public viewing." If it makes it through the cracks, pay a few extra dollars and get better quality equipment for your safety and those on the highway near you. Good luck!

There was broken glass in the trailer. I had to sweep it out before loading up.

The truck was very old and the battery was dead. I had to jumpstart it twice. The 1st time I called the customer emergency line, they told me they will charge me $75 to repair the truck. I drove only 2 miles from the UHaul facility. Unbeleiveable!!!

I had an excellent experience here. There were no hiccups or mix ups. The gentleman that dispensed the truck to me was professional, courteous and swift. I'd definitely rent from them again.

I a scheduled a uhaul pickup on-line for 8:00 am, I received a confirmation email with a "guanteed " reservation for a 24 footer for pick up on July 11 at 8:00. When I arrived to pick up my truck I had a reservation for a 17 footer instead . I was told that they did not have the 24 footer. When I showed my email confirmation and asked why does it say guanrantee , the clerk was not sure why. He offered me a 50 dollar credit for my uhual rental. The clerk said I would receive the credit at the end of the night. When I returned my rental, both gentleman at the store had no idea about a 50 dollar credit . They both assured me that I would receive the 50. 00 credit to the card I booked the reservation with. They said if I don't receive it by Friday , the 17th that I should call the manager. Honestly I do not believe that I will get a credit of 50.00 back, this store at Oakland road does not seem to have there act together.
