Customer Reviews

Excellent service! Really makes a difference when you have multiple locations to get the same equipment. You travel further for the better attention to the customers.

Farrah D. on


More obvious signage that the location was a drop off for u-haul. Wasn't very clear. Maybe "u-haul drop offs, park here"

Karen F. on


The additional Cleaning Fee of $25 is ridiculous. The panel truck I rented was returned in exactly the same condition I received it. I was moving several pieces of furniture. How dirty could it get? And, there was no indication on the original invoice or discussion about this possible charge. I will not rent from this location regardless of convenience in the future. Feels like a complete scam and just an upcharge to make unwarranted money.

Michael A. on


No one there even when on the website it listed the hours as being open until 5pm. I arrived at 3:30pm. Also, no clear direction on to where to leave the truck. Not customer friendly at all which is surprise that uhaul allows such low standards.

Mary V. on


The truck I rented was not available for about 30 minutes after my reservation time. They offered a free truck upgrade but I would have preferred my original reservation because it would have been easier to drive and taken less gas. The location was impossible to find, we passed it once after looking very hard for the turn. Parking at the location was confusing and I ended up having to move my car. All of these problems could have been solved with some nice signage. The truck was fine, I felt overly pressured to buy insurance but otherwise the process was easy.

Have truck filled with gas

The location was a very quick taxi ride from the UVA campus. The truck was ready and waiting for me. Very nice, friendly lady at the desk. She explained everything I needed to know. Pickup was easy and quick. We drove from Charlottesville, VA to New York City. The truck was very easy to drive and I found the seat very comfortable. Recommended.

SEAN B. on


The self service process was fantastic and flawless. I love it.

I rented a 15ft truck and my biggest complaint was the unrequested hand truck and bag of pads in the rear of the truck. I didn't need the hand truck and I already rented bags so what you may consider a convenience, I considered a nuisance and took away much needed space. Also it would be nice to have cruise control

Dropped off at 10 pm. Shop opened at 9 am, but not checked back in until 1 pm.

Ryan K. on


The office is basically a converted shed. The lot is co-located with a towing service so the place looks like a junk yard at a glance. However, the truck and equipment was all in good shape, ready to go when I got there. Plus, the lady at the desk is friendly, efficient, and pretty cute!

Stanley R. on


All details explained in full. Service was excellent. Easy process. Product (motorcycle trailer) is perfect for the task.

The service was quick and friendly. Did love it. the service was excellent

Kevin K. on


The people on the ground were very good to work with. U-haul's website was miserable to work with. It was slow, unresponsive and I could not get it to accept a password that I had just put in. It wound up generating two reservations, which your rep at the site had to correct.

Levon B. on


I don't know what "Average" service is for U Haul, since I have used them maybe one other time in the past; but I reserved the truck online, the online system identified which U-Haul location had the vehicle, it was close to my house, I was in and out picking it up in 5 - 10 minutes, and it took less than 5 minutes to drop it off. Couldn't have asked for much more.

Carrie P. on


Front desk person was great.

Donna S. on


Great employee

Mary Ann C. on


Quick service, helpful people....everything went well and without incident. Would use again.

Richard S. on


FBR was an alternate and an EXCELLENT choice since the primary (Carterfields Sporting Supplies) was not at their site for drop off during normal business hours and the due to Carterfields online comments I did not feel comfortable leaving the truck and supplies unattended for checkin.

Davey H. on


I cannot see where any improvements are necessary. I was treated in a very professional manner. Thank you



My wallet was lost

Jack H. on


The rental process seemed inefficient and overly customer-involved. I would have much preferred having an employee fill out the paperwork so I didn't have to struggle through the U-Haul electronic system. What could have been a 5 minute process ended up taking me over 30 minutes. If an employee filled out the paperwork in the office and inspected the truck beforehand, I also would not have had to walk from the truck, to the office, and back to the truck just to get a key from the lockbox. Overall frustrating experience.

Hard to find. Very little signage.

Eleanor C. on


Counter person very helpful. registering on line went smoothly

Jingyun H. on


I'm a new, first time customer to u haul. I didn't know exactly how the process works and what I needed to to on the device or with the staff. I hope the staff could have explained to me more clearly what I need to to, i.e. Register on the deive, upload fotos and wait to be approved. Other than this little confusion everything was perfect, very easy to use.
