First and for most, I am extremely disappointed in U-Haul. Not only was my life put in danger from the rented equipment, but the amount of stress I had to endure was unbearable, both mentally and physically. The vehicle rented to me should have never been allowed to leave the U-Haul lot. It should have been decommissioned and not allowed to be rented locally much less an 1800 mile trip. Please find a list of equipment malfunctions: 1. Both front tires are out of spec and worn. This caused the front end to pull from side to side. 2. The power steering was not working. 3. Previous major damage from before was not repaired before the vehicle was rented to me. Front end damage and box damage. The box U-Haul graffics were missing on one side. It was beat up and had "x's" from front to rear. 4. Exhaust fumes filled the cabin. This was unbearable and made me sick a multitude of times. Especially driving through the desert. 5. The window gaskets were worn and did not have a seal making the exhaust fumes worse and not to mention the ac was un-effective due to the lack of seals. 6. The humming sounds the seals would make became unbearable and extremely annoying. 7. The interior cab light had a short. 8. The truck pulled off the road by itself over three times. I can't imagine someone who has not had experience behind heavy equipment driving the vehicle, as I am sure the truck would have caused an accident, especially with the construction on Interstate. 9. Truck would cut out and sputter. 10. The overdrive did not work and caused an extra 800.00 dollars in fuel cost. That is just the beginning of the flaws on the vehicle rented to me. The Baytown, Texas U-Haul agreed and said that they vehicle should never had been released, as it was a road hazard. I am requesting a full refund on the rental to my VISA card used for the rental. The total amount I am requesting is $2671.09, plus an extra $800.00 for additional fuel cost. Please refund $3471.09 to my VISA card. Also please be advised that the moving service I booked for on the U-Haul site was not available at the booked and confirmed times per the U-Haul website. I had to pay extra too load the entire vehicle. I understand that times are tough, but for a U-Haul shop to rent out dangerous equipment because they do not want to take the time to properly repair vehicles when they have been damaged, is unacceptable and is not in the the spirit of the U-Haul brand. Thank you for taking care of this very serious issue and please know I am available to speak anytime. Much respect, Robert Martin CEO Robert Jr Inc. 323-314-1317 international direct

Kenneth Neal was warm and helpful. He did a great job helping me and my family with the haul return. He made it quick and left us with a smile.

The only thing this place has going for it is convenience. Staff does not care about customer service, and seems troubled if they have to help. The only way to fix this place is to fire everyone who works there and build a new culture. Also, get rid of the hustlers/homeless who hang out on the lot looking for work.

The only problem I encountered was the fact that the gas gauge reading in the computer was inaccurate. It read 5/8 in the computer but when the gentlemen brought the truck to me to inspect, we both saw it was barely past half way. This caused problems when I went to turn the vehicle in. The gentlemen was very nice at the drop off location because he identified the problem immediately. This issued would have cost me an extra $13.97. U-Haul has improved a lot and your customer service was outstanding.

The staff at this location are very organized. I was greeted almost immediately upon arrival and checking out was a breeze. I was even offered a cup of coffee. Everyone there was friendly and in a good mood, and that has to do with the manager on duty. great job and courteous staff.

Great experience all around. I've become a regular customer due to this pleasant people and clean/efficient equipment. As a contractor, I need a quick in and out service experience... I've gotten that in your Santa Monica location. THANKS!!!!

The truck started with less gas than what was reflected in the contract, so I had to pay for extra gas. That's not fair, and I hope it's not a systemic issue (i.e., routinely charging customers extra for gas).

It didn't say on your website that there was no parking. Had I known I would have made arrangements to be dropped off or taken a taxi. Instead we struggled to find somewhere we could legally park and leave the car for more than 2 hours. Despite doing the express check in, upon arrival I waited at the counter while the agents chatted and joked with each other and took their time. The truck was in bad shape with the crank to roll the window down being broken off etc. Tank was less than 1/4 full so I had to get gas before even hitting the road. All in it cost me $135+ plus $60 in gas to rent a small truck for 5 hours for a local job, which seems high. Overall - not a great experience.

Great friendly staff. Rental lot is well organized. However, when I got on the road, I discovered that the driver's side mirror tended to drop and needed to be re-adjusted frequently. For some reason, the turn signals were inactive and the rear stop indicators did not work. On the bright side, when I reported these problems, the staff took it seriously and went to work to discover the problems. The truck was taken out of service until the problems were fixed.

I was in and out of the Uhaul in five minutes. Make sure you check in online to expedite your truck rental. The man that checked us in was very nice and listened to our needs. Thanks!

Service was A+. I could not be happier with the attitude of the staff. All five employees that I interacted with were pleasant to deal with and accommodating. I was also happy with the ease of checking in and checking out when I returned my rented truck. The employee pulled out a phone when I returned and did the check-out right there on the website of his phone! So fast and easy! I also mistakenly left my pair of tie-down straps in my rented truck, so when I returned the next day, two employees searched for and eventually found my lost tie-down straps!
