Make sure the trailer is in proper condition before renting

Service was good. However the truck didn't. Truck received stucked in the snow. Had to be helped by a neighbor with a truck to pull it out. No light working in the cabin. No light working in the cargo area. Hazard lights no working when pushing the brake, totally useless when maneuvering the truck. Fuel meter working randomly. Over showing leeching my place but under stinging. Had to drive back to the head station to re-fill it. I guess the credit I received for fuel was because the same problem with the previous renter. Definitively a better check is needed for the trucks, especially if they are being rented to non professional driver. And 13 pads in the dozen, I guess someone received a dozen with 11 and was charged for the missed one...

As they did before when I used this location, the staff and service was amazing and I wouldn't think I of using another location, even if I had to drive for a hour to deal with them. Thank you to the staff and owners. Your amazing and there should be more businesses like you. Lee

What is this broken down scam location? The guy takes $200 from me but puts 109 towards my bill? Charges me for 3 days when I had it for 2? charges me 3 days insurance instead of 2? Why is it the gas from this location is never accurate to the slip he gives? Why does he say just fill it back up to where it was when we call him to tell him, but then when he bills us, he bills us like that conversation never even happened. The old guy who runs this place shouldnt be allowed to rent uhauls, its a money grabbing scam every time! You should request his security camera footage since I feel this is crazy that he is being allowed to both get away with this and ruin uhauls good name (the other branches in town, no problems!)

Awesome service, like the kind you would have expected 30 years ago. Very friendly, professional and fast.



Corina is clearly the Star at this location. Efficient and highly-capable, she made the experience a smooth and trouble-free one.....

I ordered a furnitnure dolly. On arrival I was told this was not available, the location told me "it was normal not to have the equipment from the website" This caused me a lot of expense and delay, I had to rearrange various arrangement to track down a furniture dolly I could purchase. In the end I was unsuccessful, and spent 2 hours building one, and keeping a lot of people waiting who had arranged to help with my move. There is no excuse for NOT advising customers that this is a possibility. And, no excuse for NOT notifying the customer in advance, instead of waiting until the customer checks in and is starting a tight schedule. This was such a disruptive aspect of the rental; it made an already stressful day, even more difficult.



We ended up having to have two tires on the uhaul cargo trailer repaired which meant we sat on the road for hours waiting on a repair truck and having the work done. I had to make arrangements for my young children to be picked up and cared for as we were over 3 hours behind schedule. I was beyond frustrated and disappointed with the situation. One tire I can possibly understand as flat tires do happen, but two seem like a negligence,

Showed up and got told that this wasn't the drop off location. Went to drop off and had no help just a lot with no sense of where to drop stuff.

Jeanne Z. on


Very inconvenient location. No parking available and then you have to drive several blocks from the office to pick up your rental. The parking yard where the vehicles are kept has several large pot holes that are like mini lakes after a rain storm. Staff were pleasant and helpful though.



computer system was completely unhelpful. took 5 tries and a work around for the individual to make it work. Not her fault - computer system was not flexible. Location is awkward since the truck was located a far walk from the office.

I rented a 6x12 trailer. There was something wrong with the axel alignment because the front axel was over one way by about 2 inches. Also, the brakes were not fully releasing. After towing trailer approx 25 kilometers you could smell hot brakes and I could feel heat from hub area. It's my opinion if I had pulled this trailer 100 kms without stopping there would have been a fire. I made the rental location aware of these issues. The trailer worked well enough for what I needed.

The location was hard to find, but that wasn't a huge deal, the problem was the truck it was dirty, had cigarette butts all over it and in the tray (the woman informed me that you can smoke in them which we don't). The truck does not seem well maintained, and the prices were horrible. I will not be using your services again based on this. The ladies that rented out the trucks were the only things good about the experience with UHaul. I feel like with a well know name like yours that you would have an updated fleet and at least clean. If I wasn't on a deadline today I would have rejected the truck and went to another dealer. 250 dollars (plus gas for less than 8 hours)...... and in a dirty... messy, food filled truck. Not ok.



There needs to be a 24 hour call center so people can drop off trailers after facilities are closed

Extremely tight quarters! Very difficult location to drive into, very little room to unhook & get back out of! we dropped our cargo trailer off a day early & the next day uhail called to ask when we would be dropping it off! We assumed the staff where we dropped trailer off would notify u haul it was returned! Poor customer service - no wonder it is so terrible difficult or frustrating to book with uhaul!

Jim H. on


the location was crowded and i had to park on the street around the corner.

Explain more detail to the customer as to how the "brake controller" mounted on the front of the hitch operates. Its should be explained how to reset that controller in-case it accidently activates during towing manouveres.....especially backing-up.



The truck was awful to drive, it was sluggish and rattled a lot.

jake t. on


I was over charged 100 dollars more than quoted on the phone, and the truck broke down and it cost me my deposit, I won't be using this service again or recommending it to a friend, I might even file a complaint

ADAM K. on


The truck was not swept when we got it and the drivers side seatbelt was coming apart. The drivers side window crank knob was missing and later found in the console as we were returning the truck. The location is inconvenient to get the truck and return it because the office is 3 blocks away from the truck parking lot.



The location is not well signed. The lot was full and there was no place to park, forcing me to park two lots over. It is a very difficult to find and had to make two runs around the block to figure out which business was the uhaul, then another lap to get parked.

Michael G. on


The return location was a storage yard and the agent receiving the trailer I returned did not even check the trailer and did not offer any paperwork or any signature indicating that it was received in good order etc. I called the office asking for a receipt and was promised by the lady I spoke to that she would email my receipt. To this day I have still not received my receipt. Once again the overall experience of dealing with Uhaul was very bad and I was extremely disappointed.

Peter L. on


The U-Haul scheduling department booked my pickup at a location 2.5 hours away from the location I had requested. As I had booked several weeks prior in a city of 6 million people I was surprised and disappointed with the call letting me know all my plans needed to be changed less than 24 hours before I was depending on the trailer. Through several calls to various locations and the central booking we eventually arranged something that worked despite a significant additional effort and cost on our part. At this pickup location they were friendly and helpful. To summarize: this location was good and helpful but central booking was horrible.
