Routine mechanical work and service

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

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!

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.

the representative is really not helpful

mike a. on


The guy who helped me was efficient and great at customer service. Very nice



The agent was very unprofessional. He tossed my keys to me over the desk as he did not want to get up and he was extremely rude when I returned the truck, acting impatiently as if I were bothering him.

Tessa W. on


I walked all around the facility looking for an employee since there was nobody in the office and there was no way to notify anyone for help. I eventually ended up finding Calvin Beck, who was very pleasant and helpful (Thanks Calvin!). Maybe there should be a bell to ring? To let employees know they have a customer waiting. Other than that, it was an easy-going experience.

Incorrect pickup location was in the computer despite confirming drop off location at the time of pick-up. Staff was extremely helpful and the matter was resolved.

Michelle M. on


The employee was very rude and short with us when picking up the van (7/1). Then, called ten minutes after we left because he left keys to another truck in our van and made us bring them back to the location. Stated he would reimburse us for gas and mileage but when we returned the van, we had to remind him of the discount upon seeing the bill with no discount. Overall extremely disappointed with the service. Employee was rude and disrespectful with every encounter.

Kristen B. on


Easy pickup and drop off. Made moving easier without taking a lot of time.

The truck rental experience was good. The storage locker rental was not. I was quoted a good rate on a standard locker over the phone. I reserved a locker at that rate, and I even confirmed that reservation with a separate followup phone call after receiving a nonspecific email confirmation. When I got their to begin unloading, I was of course told that there were no more standard lockers at that rate, and that I'd have to rent a more expensive climate controlled locker. It was the typical bait and switch.
