My initial order was to pick up a 6x12 trailer Reservation #: 29227404 Pick Up Location: Hacienda Gutierrez 72806 Ramon Rd Thousand Palms, CA 92276 The attendant there was a total A$$ and offered absolutely no help when he said my order wasn't there. I was pleased, however, that Uhaul provided an alternative. Just not happy they didn't schedule correctly.


This review is for the THIRD location to which my reservation was assigned. Through no fault of this location, I did not receive the truck size reserved at the time reserved or place reserved. This location (almost) saved my move. Uhaul corporate, online reservations, and employees who call less than 20 hours before pickup to say, “Your truck will not be available,” are the reason it will be NEVER AGAIN Uhaul for me.

Fairly easy renting from U-Haul no problems at all and I say that's unbelievable. Customer service was very good.

Have the tank full every time so the customer does not have to worry about how much they need to put. Know that is a good business move but...


The rental agreement with quick and easy there were no problems I would recommend it to others

The truck had trash in the cab. The windows were disgusting with smudges, bodily fluids and finger prints and clearly nothing had been cleaned (in a time of a pandemic). This made it dangerous driving as the sun went down as the smudges obstructed my ability to see the road clearly. In addition, I had to transfer my original truck rental order from Yucca Valley to Desert Hot Springs. At no point in this process did anybody mention that the Desert Hot Springs location has no safe place to park your car overnight and in fact is a very sketchy place to leave your car unattended. This is very inconsiderate. Not everyone has multiple people to help in the moving process. There was broken glass from multiple car windows that had been smashed in the exact location that the attendant at the Desert Hot Springs location said I should park. This location is honestly ideal for car theft: poorly lit, very few cars coming through, parked right on a dark street between u-haul trucks. He (the attendant) said in his 20 years of working there, that nobody got their car broken into and yet would not let me park behind the gates at night "due to liability". Either it is safe to park or it is not. You can't talk out of both sides of your mouth. This caused me in 111 degree heat to rush to get the move done much faster than anticipated and caused a huge amount of unneeded stress. This is the kind of thing that makes you think twice about using a company again. Moving is all about logistics. If you guys don't help with the basic information anyone would need to make a smooth move, you are making a stressful time more stressful and you are leaving a bad taste in people's mouths.

This part of it was fine, drop off was nice.


Was a great time.

The office just gave me the keys and sent me off to look for my truck. The truck was dirty and after driving a few miles I realized the A/C was not going to get cold. I tried calling Uhaul but no one answered. Its July in the desert and going to be 115° so I have to go back to Uhaul to switch out the truck. No one is in the office and the door is locked.. After locating the staff I finally get keys to another truck and once again sent out on my own to find the truck. This truck was only 3/4 full of gas, but nothing was said or put in the paperwork about it from the office so once again i try calling the office to let them know but again nobody answers the phone. So by now over an 1.5 hours of my day time has been wasted by Uhaul. Very unhappy with the service, or lack of it. I would not recommend this location!


When we lifted the roll up door, there were broken down empty boxes and a couple items left inside the the truck, from previous renter.. It delayed us from loading having to clean out the truck.. Other than that, the truck was great.


Thank you, Josh.. Don't forget I need a truck tomorrow.


Nothing. Service was professional, efficient, customer-oriented, and priced right. Vehicle was in great condition and drove comfortably. Highly recommend.

Penny L.
