Customer Reviews

shane B.

Really sketch people. Tried to pull one over on us and charge us more and change our drop off locations. Also, our location for pick up was switched at the last minute. Really disappointed and dissatisfied with U-Haul overall. Will never use again and upset I was even charged for the run around and hassle.

James I.

Convenient location. Dropped off after hours. Staff processed drop off without any difficulty

Richard G.

Needed truck today, Rainbow Forest Automotive solved my problem. richard Griffiths

George G.

Just a side note, the original drop off place on my rental contract was no longer in business when I got to my destination. I had to research this place myself. Rainbow Forest Automotive was very friendly and accommodating and I would highly recommend them. U-Haul should be up to date on their agents.

Dropped truck off after hours

Rachel W.

Business owner was very rude, hung up on me several times when I called because I said “pardon” when I couldn't understand his mumbling. Was not helpful in answering questions either.

Benjamin D.

The location itself is a good location right on 460 but the facility is a dump.


They would not unhook takedowns for car to auto transport trailer citing insurance issues. I had to crawl under the trailer to unhook safety chains and tire tie downs. Interestingly, when I put the car on the trailer at my origin point, U-Haul staff insisted they hook-up the car to the trailer.

Rebecca D.

Send the email confirmation about the dropoff location. I never got it - neither did the drop off place.


Cab was very dirty. Bed was not clean. I cleaned the bed before return but not cab ,was filthy I did not touch and refuse to pay a cleaning fee for that

David W.

We ended up being overcharged as the dealer indicated that we put at least 50 miles on the truck. We did not, as we traveled only from the Town of Troutville to Rainbow Forest. We put about 20 miles on the truck, at the most. My husband indicated that the miles indicated at the onset were incorrect, but we had no proof. From now on, we will take a photo of the mileage and check the mileage listed on the rental agreement before we leave the lot. Live and learn!

DEvi M.

Consider making customer service a priority

elizabeth S.

When I rented equipment I was told the location I wanted was available. The day before I was instructed to drive an hour away to pick up truck. Unacceptable. On my instructions to return truck I also had to drive about 35 minutes each way to drop off truck.

Hisham A.

We reserved 2 trucks and they were not available.

Patrick F.

They were not open. I unhooked the trailer and drove away.

wendell D.

all was good

Daniel C.

The property is not well lit for nighttime drop offs and the spots for leaving the trailer are few and not obvious. U-Haul telephone Customer Service was very poor; either a borderline rude representative or no one every answered the phone after 15 minutes of waiting

Megan I.

This place almost turned out to be an awful experience. Not taking into account that my truck broke down the night before and I was switched to this location, then I get there and the gentlemen had rented my truck that morning to someone else because he did not bother to check for rentals that came in. I actually spoke directly with that location the night before and confirmed that they had my truck, etc. Then it was clear that was Uhaul traffic told him to give me the truck he was still hesitant to do so and Uhaul traffic told him to do so because I had the reservation first. It would have been one thing to mess up and apologize but to mess up, blame it on others and take no responsibility was just flat wrong. Not to mention the other folks that were standing behind me that had to leave because they had no vehicle.


This is not against the pick up location- I reserved the 15 ft truck for a one way trip under the impression that it was at the location indicated. The follow up email stated that the truck was across town. Please try to improve the accuracy of what each location has available.

richard G.

Everything was very smooth.


The location I requested was not available. They gave me a location 20 miles away that added an extra 40 miles in the wrong direction. The reserved dolly was not available at pick up. The truck was not swept out. There were no blankets on the truck. The Blue Ridge pick up location was not a very comfortable business to be in. Grundgy and dark. The guy that checked us out was not friendly and made us wait while he finished up in his garage. Even though he wasn't with a customer. He wasn't willing to help with the mileage concerns that the U haul company created. The drop off location in Petersburg was great and had great customer service skills. He didn't make us pay extra mileage.


I was charged for extra mileage and I should have not been. I took the same route 4 weeks ago and everything was OK. I will definately check mileage in the future when using U-Haul. This is not exceptable.

Stephen W.

This was not the location I was supposed to rent from. i did not know to go to this location until I arrived at the Williamson road Location to pick up my truck. The air conditioning was not working .
