Renting the truck on my phone did not work. Had to go inside when I picked it up because the truck arrived late the night before and had to be checked in. No problem there. Returned the truck and the website could not find my location even though it was enabled. Had to call and say on hold for close to thirty minutes. Uhaul needs to fix these issues if they are going to offer touch less rentals.

He charged me for 2 gallon where is no true because I took a picture when I left it. Second if we say that is correct , he should only charge 1 gallon

Picked up truck, no problem, except was not giving information about mileage or gas level in the agreement. Drove the truck from 27276 to 27290, 14 miles. I put 2.5 gallons of gas in it and returned it at 9:07 AM. Gas level was above 3/4 tank. I have pictures... left keys with front desk. He said he would e-mail a receipt. The original charge for an estimated 20 mile trip was $57.91, but my credit card was charged additional $82.38. Both charges are still pending. No receipt was provided. This business has low integrity. I will not return there for any type of service and will dispute the charges.

The service at Brake Stop Enscondido was great! I signed up to do a mobile pick up but I didn't have any signal so I wasn't able to load my pick up process in the app. Thankfully my Uhaul pick up time was 4/9/21 8am so it was business hours and I was able to get my pick up processed. I ended up needing my rental for longer than anticipated and was easily able to callto extend my rental time. Great service overall!

There was a female employee inside the office where the customers enter that was not wearing a mask. The gentleman who helped me placed his mask over his face when I came in but wasn't appropriately wearing it outside. I will not use this location again. If that means that I will not be using Uhaul again that so be it.

The night before I picked up my Uhaul, the pickup time and location were changed, which threw my moving timeline totally out of whack. If I'm guaranteed pick up from the place I reserved at the time I reserved, then it should actually be guaranteed.

We returned the truck and a staff greeted us at the drive way and directed us to go to the office. When asked for a return receipt, the man in the office told us that he will send us email receipt. But we never received such email receipt. We asked him to check the gas gauge to verify it was half full, he said everything was ok. We left feeling unsure, because we were not given any paperwork acknowledging that we returned the truck.

If you change a drop off location after the contract agreement, ENSURE the customer has received this information prior to the drop off date, or deal with managing It at the original location, even if it's inconvenient. Don't put the onus on the customer to deal with the subsequent inconvenience. It makes the customer feel UHAUL is not customer oriented and want to search for alternatives next time around.

The workers here were kind, however the van was very dirty. The intial checkout process attempts to compel me to identify this condition upfront, but there is no time for someone to take care of this, so I felt forced to lie in the app to get moving with my business. The return process then expects me to pay $25 for it be cleaned upon return when I mark it as being "not ready" to be rented to someone else.

Was told by uhaul to drop off the trailer at a Bent motorsports and uhaul at 8am. Drive there to drop off and they dont open till 9 and its NOT EVEN A UHAUL LOCATION. I call 1800GOUHAUL and am on hold for 20 minutes so I just call another uhaul in the area, they say they cant just take the trailer and need to call uhaul. They at least gave me a phone number at was answered and the drop off location was changed and ended up being the shop that I called. Both shops that I ultimately picked up and dropped off at were fine all extra before was disappointing. If I had to drive across country with a vehicle transport again I will either shot the vehicle or buy a trailer before renting from uhaul.

The location wasn't the issue as much as U-haul total failure to honor a reservation made at a different location. I had to make this secondary reservation after my initial reservation made nearly a month ago could not be fulfilled by your Indio location was cancelled less than 24 hours before my move. In addition, the trailer that was delivered to me had a rear left tire in poor condition that resulted in a punctured tire that required roadside assistance. Fortunately, I discovered the puncture after loading, but before getting on the road. See additional notes on your Roadside Assistance. Lastly, after I returned the trailer within the 24 allotted period as noted by the agent at Brake Stop, I was incorrectly billed for 2 days of rental instead of the 1 day. U-haul's service was a total failure from reservation to roadside assistance to the final incorrect billing. I would expect a full refund from U-haul for this terrible experience.

No one told us that we were supposed to fill out a form online when we returned the trailer. We had it all cleaned out and returned it exactly the next day. The location was closed because it was a Sunday. No one told us we had to go online and check it back in. Because of this they charged us an extra day. This was very unfair and very deceiving of U-Haul to do this to someone. We will look at other brands to rent from next time we rent

I had to drive 1 hour south to get the auto transport. When I got to the original place that was suppose to have it in Escondido, they did not have it. They said they sent it out the day before. I had to wait another 30 minutes while they found another one in San Marcos. I drove another 10 minutes to that location, finally pick it up, drive another hour back home, which put me 3 hours behind. My gas, my time. And then a rep called me to give me a drop off location which was different from the one for the truck. I asked if I could just drop it at the same place and I got a ride "no." I am very unhappy with this particular experience. Usually I am very happy with Uhaul.

First, I rate UHaul in general as terrible. I reserved trailer a week in advance for closest to my house. Day before rental, I get a call that not available there and have to travel 45 miles one way to pick up trailer. This on roads that take me over an hour. Asked if could be delivered to the location nearby, was told no. Terrible way to treat a customer. At the pick up, attendant was rude. As I finished my paperwork, another customer came in for his repair shop. He asked me to wait in my truck and he would get me to go get the trailer. Instead of asking the new customer to wait, I waited for 30 minutes for him to serve them before he came to take me back to the trailer. UHaul and the pick up some get minus score.

The GM wasn't wearing a mask and came out into the lobby around customers, the person behind the counter wore a mask but seemed irritated I mentioned the GM's lack of having a mask, saying "we've had lots of customers come in here without masks". From then on he seemed irritated and I felt like he wanted me to be gone ASAP (even though I dropped the topic). Wearing a mask is about protecting OTHERS, and/or making customers more comfortable. I'm not nearly as concerned as many, but I just see it as a sign that this company either doesn't understand and/or don't care about the concerns and/or comfort of their customers. That's not the type of place that will get my future business.

Could not get the orange key box to open after paying for the rental on line. Will have to go back to Brake Depot early Monday morning to turn in the key. Final instruction on mobile receipt was to check the van for personal items, lock the doors, and drop the key in the orange box. Got to the orange box and it said to hit the 'start return' button on mobile device. Could not do that as I was already done with transaction. A little confusing.

Person who showed up was a total jerk. Small yard but several empty equipment parking areas. Person directed me to park trailer in a near impossibe spot, in the opposite direction i was driving. I told him i would drop trailer where i was located, and i would help him push into the spot he arbitrarily identified. He said no if i disconnected the traler he would charge me additional money. Said he would drive my car to park trailer. I said no. " what do you want from me". He was a total jeck and disrespectful. It could have been a good experience rental except for this controllong jerk. Never again!

Concerned about the instructions i recieved regarding how to return the vehicle after hours. I was told by attendant to just return and take a photo of the mileage gauge. I was unaware of the other items i had to check. I returned the vehicle and drove to my home. I attempted to perform the after hours check out but was not able to. I returned to the rental place to complete my vehicle return. I would have appreciated if the attendant had done a better job explaining the process.

Do not place vehicles on the road that have issues with the driver door lock (broken and could unlock it from the outside, I had to access the vehicle through the passenger door). The ignition had issues as well. It was difficult to extract the key from the ignition at times.

The drop off location was to be open till 2:30 p.m. they were closed we went to drop off the trailer. No not on door, just locked. They should have notified uhaul that they were closed. Luckily I had someone with me and we were able to unhook the trailer ourselves. I met a customer that was to pick up a rental. He wasn't told they were closed.

While the pick up was convenient, the mileage on the truck was completely off and therefore created a delay in picking up the truck. I had to call customer service and was on hold for nearly 20 minutes to let them know about the mileage discrepancy. All they did was make a note in the system, which did nothing to help me when I returned the truck. Also, the dolly that was supposed to be in the truck, was not in the truck.
