Customer Reviews

Rikard K.

Great drop off location. Easy drop off. I wish I had verified the mileage though. I ended up paying for extra miles when I know I drove less than the allowance. My bad.

Mercedes T.

it was so hot, The room the young lady was in was extremely warm, "cooled" by a large floor fan. She did not have on a mask. I was extremely uncomfortable with that at the same time sympathetic given the poor conditions she was in. The customer before me had a mask on as did I. I waited outside till he was done. A mask is necessary. I would not return to this location because of that especially since there are many to choose from. As far as the truck goes, there was no ramp. Part of the reason I rented a uhaul was because I needed a ramp. I found out after that I would have had to pay extra for that. That was unfortunate. It seems like such a basic part of a moving truck.

You should allow your locations to make reservations in person. You also should be able to get a paper receipt upon return of the vehicle.

Have my original order available at the location I ordered. Not having to drive 163 miles to go pick up a truck that is 10 foot shorter than what we ordered. Then having all the rigmarole to get us all set up because now with a smaller truck it takes more loads. But then Do you know that people have no choice and you guys treat us poorly. The dispatcher Michelle needs to be reviewed at her job because she told me she has no supervisor I'm glad she's in charge If U-Haul. I'm not sure how you were allowed to cancel our order 13 hours before pick up on a move, which by your general purpose of your business practice to know how time exactly it is. If I had any other option when I moved I would not do use U-Haul,


We had booked 20ft vehicle also had confirmation number but didn't get information about pickup location so we had to compromise and take whatever available at Erickson automotive increasing our cost to labor mileage and disturbances in time schedules

The woman at the desk was friendly and awesome. She let us switch trailers when the one we were assigned had a stuck door. Everything went very smoothly. The only minor complaint I have is that the wooden rods on the inside of the trailer had very small holes to strap things to, and one of them actually snapped during the move. Fortunately, none of the furniture was affected or moved. Overall a good experience, thanks!

jacob L.

The trailer door broke and I was told if I returned it a day early I would not be charged for two days and I still got charged for two days.

Howard I.

I returned trailer on Tuesday or Wednesday and it wasn't open. So parked it and left it.

brett S.

I ordered a dolly and did not have a dolly in the truck when i picked it up.


Fast easy return and very nice people. Right off Madonna on Higuera.

Joy M.

I will use them again.

Jed H.

Employee rented the 10 foot truck that I had reserved and he rented it still under my name! I volunteered to take a larger truck with irate customer yelling at employee and then, today, I received an invoice for the van I reserved but which was rented to another customer.


Customer service was great. Will rent from this location again. Thanks!


The drop off location listed on our order was not this location. Took several hours to find a solution and eventually this location took it. Very unsatisfied with our overt Uhaul experience, not to the fault of the locations.

Holly V.

They were closed on Sunday when we were trying to return truck. I tried to do after hours return in my phone but it kept giving me an error message so I didn't want to drop the keys in the night drop box without speaking to someone. My son took keys over the next morning since we had to leave Sunday.

jack C.

Paid 10 dollars for a dolly rental that I never received. U-haul was low of fuel and a reverse light bulb was not working.

Ben R.

The driver-side door would not stay shut, but I did not feel unsafe. The representative was very helpful and got me out quickly.

Michael K.

Good care texted me to remind me to return it at agreed time, meet me in parking lot and was nice.

frank W.

kristopher A.

WELLL my order was moved an HOUR away, and was TWO feet smaller. Very rude of uhual. However... The lovely woman at the front helped us out and is an actual angel. Needs a pay raise tbh. Super nice and respectful
