Customer Reviews

Michael G. on


I was very pleased with my overall experience. The cargo van was clean and very easy to operate. My only complaint was that U-Haul's website made it appear I could rent from this location and drop-off at another U-Haul, but when I asked I was told it had to be returned to the same place. Either was, checking in and out was fast, easy, and everyone was very helpful and friendly.

Bryan C. on


When checking in, the keys couldn’t be found. The drop-off process was confusing and the attendant was rude. I didn’t receive the emailed receipt I asked for. I only received that after I contacted support. I left worried that I would be over-charged. Would avoid this location in the future.

not happy, rented the truck for 24 hrs, when we arrived to return it, the associate was not in the office, I left the paperwork on the desk with the time I arrived, and with a note saying we were in the building emptying the truck, when the associate returned to the office, and checked the truck back in , I was told they would email me a receipt as of now no email received but my credit card was billed for double the original price on the paperwork I checked my credit card and I was billed for 2 days - I want this refunded, not fair that just because he was not where he should have been when I returned the truck that I should be charged for another day - again I want a refund, or a credit for another truck that I need to rent this weekend, If this is not fixed, I will rent a truck and a storage unit someplace else. you can check my account, I have rented many trucks at this location, and had units, and my son has a unit, my sister has a unit we have been very good customers, and have never been given any discounts

Better signage for where to park for pickup. There was a sign for equipment return but nothing regarding pickup.



The gas tank was not full even though the vague showed full. It cost $17 worth of gas to travel less than 20 miles.

The manager was first class and the experience with the truck and the moving day was great. But when we were looking to choose the self rental space, the guy who worked there on a Saturday 1 week ago was rude, not kind and not helpful. When i told him at the end that it wouldn't hurt him to smile and be kind, he said he didn't get paid to do that. Also, when i asked him if he could show me a unit, he gave me a map and said see it yourself. Maybe he was just having a bad day, but we immediately took U-Haul off the list for the self rental unit. We ended up at Guardian near Whole Foods.

Rental agent was professional, yet friendly. Facility was immaculate. The entire process went smoothly from beginning to end. I will definitely go to U-Haul again and recommend it to others.

Remember furniture pads and don't charge for them when you forget to include them with the rental.

Routine mechanical work and service

Someone gave you an fake email, namely mine. And now I’m getting spammed. Don’t you verify names??!?!

aparna n. on


I was very disappointed that I had a noon reservation and no one was there. I has to wait almost an HOUR to pick up my truck. The truck also had a check engine or some kind of light on that had me concerned but I was so late and my movers had arrived that I ignored it. Other than that, it was easy to sign up over the phone to make a reservation. When someone did actually help me, they were good.

The first van wasn't clean enough to the employee's satisfaction, so he graciously offered me a different one - I really appreciated his standards!

suzie t. on


Friendly and courteous!

christina h. on


Nothing. I was completely satisfied with the gentlemen who serviced me. They were professional, knowledgeable, polite & friendly. This was my first time renting from this location & I will definitely use again as well as refer other people to this location. They made my stressful, frustrating day a lot more pleasant. Thank you very much gentleman.

Manager wasn't at his desk when we returned vehicle. We tried to check out online, but that didn't work. Eventually manager returned, but after a long wait. Recommend improving return process.

Calvin Beck was quite helpful and he called me back about my pricing concern. He, himself, also got confused and told me that he would look into the matter and call me in 30 minutes. However, he did not get back at me at all. All in all, this was a negative experience and it made U-Haul look extremely unprofessional. I will not be recommending this location to anyone.

Fervinado L. on


Nothing, Calvin Beck was exceptional, we were in and out quickly and with no problems.
