I don't know why my final statement included a credit card fee of almost 15%.


Since I was new to U-Hual, I asked about the gas on return and was told to fill it up before returning. When I called to extend the rental for a second day, the representative at the 800 number told me to fill it up. After putting $70 in the tank, I was told at the return location that I only had to put it back to where it was when I rented it--at about half full. In addition, I was told that I had to return the car a full hour earlier than I had rented it because it was already rented for 8:00 on Saturday. Saturday morning was heavily fogged, and caused me to leave at 6:30 for a ten minute drive, but got me to the location after 7:00. It was unsafe to drive faster, but by the time the location manager could get me checked in, I was already over the limit and added another day of rental. Even though she had to charge me for it, she forgave $20 because of the circumstances. On top of all this, that truck was still sitting there an hour later--if it was actually rented ror 8:00, the renter would have been there. I feel I was taken advantage of by U-Haul policy. I would say that manager is the only reason I would rent here, again, because she knew I had been taken advantage of on the gas return and the early return. So, in addition to the rental rates, which were deceptively low at $19.99 a day, and the ridiculous $1 a mile for 69 miles, and $70 for gas, this two-day rental racked up $180--quite a lot when compared to Budget Truck Rentals with better fuel economy. I have no complaints about the employees--they couldn't have been nicer--it's just a shame that the company policies take advantage of situations like these at every turn.

My experience with uhaul in general has gone from bad to worse over the past few years. Your ability to remain the lowest cost truck rental service came at the cost of service and quality. I'm pleased to say that my experience this time was different. They had everything i requested, at the time and location i reserved it, and they were friendly and polite and got me in and out efficiently. I hope this experience marks a change in priority for the company of moving back towards a service oriented model and appreciation for the customers who allow you to remain open for business! This team deserves recognition for their great service, and I hope others can learn from them!


The equipment that I requested and made an appointment for was not available and I still was charged for that equipment even though I never received it. Also, the gas tank was at 1/4 when I picked it up, so I returned it filled to 1/4 and I was charged $20+. I'm still waiting for a partial refund.

Great service! congratulations.

Cesar M.

Great Job !

Michaela D.

The uhaul was disgusting inside and not sanitized at all. Coffee stains everywhere and dirty nail clippers left in them. Especially during a pandemic, the uhaul should have been cleaned or sanitized.

Janine F.

Let them know that, even though it's clearly closed, they can do everything themselves. Prices should be cheaper because customer does everything that a paid receptionist would do.

William W.

As a repeat customer. Great efficient service.

Joseph S.

Nancy was very helpful. It was the easiest truck rental I have ever experienced.

Sydney T.

Someone helped me drive the truck to fill up with gas. Saved me $35. That's amazing customer service. These guys are great.

Brynn M.

The staff was great and I would rent again but my gas was at 1/4 tank and I was told it was 3/4 tank. If I had not photographed the mileage when I started I would not have realized the mistake. I Assume it is due to Covid 19 that it happened since agents are not walking u to the car to confirm but that would have been a very expensive mistake. I did have to wait a while to get my truck and I would have thought they would have given me extra time for my wait but it wasn't offered and I didn't need it. Maybe they would have if I asked. The mechanic who was not helping me directly was the most professional and polite man. He clearly cares about the image of the location.

Cameron L.

Super fast & easy

Juan N.

there is an error in the miles entered, they got 5 extra miles

Eric L.

I was charged for two rental periods after only using the vehicle for 4 hours and paid for more plus 50 miles of mileage.

Jaime C.

The location, Instant Smog was great. But that was not where I ordered the truck. UHAUL changed my reservation to a different town because I had ordered there in the past. I had to drive 10 miles out of the way. Customer service was unhelpful and took me an hour and half to figure out that all they could do is give me a .10 cent discount on mileage. The systems were down, no one could speak or answer why my reservation changed. It's like this company just started renting trucks, not renting from here again.

Bruce R.

Truck was very clean. However, driver's door would not close securely and extra force had to be used to close the door. The window crank on the driver side fell off each time the window was opened or closed. Also - UHaul policy to bring the vehicle back with gas at the same level as when received is inaccurate and unfair. Vehicle should be delivered with a FULL tank of gas and returned with a FULL tank. I know I gave you more gas than I used because I had no way of knowing the CORRECT AMOUNT of fuel consumed.

Be honest about the price.


Location is fine. People were good. The internet pick up was terrible. It did not work, and nobody was answering the chats. I will never use the online service again.

John M.

Staff was very helpful did a great job getting me in my rental quick and when I was done and returned the truck it was quick.

Kumiko H.

ira G.

I was charged an extra $5 for use of the hand truck and another $5 for use of the blankets which I didn't use.

Damian D.

We scheduled a time to pick up our truck at 7am. When we got to the location at 7am the truck that was assigned was completely blocked in on all sides by other trucks. We called the help number but after 25 minutes or so we just decided to wait until 8 when the place opened. This location doesn't park their trucks in actual parking spaces. They just squeeze them in and I'm sure they have this problem often
