They had no idea what they were doing. Made the process extremely difficult. Would not rent at Uhaul again

I had to return the truck at 1.30. I was punctual however the truck was still full. I asked the next customer if he could let us go to the storage and empty the truck. We found the nicest person we could meet and the nicest renting company who accepted the favor ! People can be very very nice sometimes when you do not expect it. I will always remember this experience because I didn’t know the price was the same if I would have rented it for a day so I did for just three hours. Still, I was very lucky to find a nice person both client and company!!! Again, Thank you! Alessia

Could use better signage, as the Shell station and carwash block the small U-Haul area in back. The Shell cashier doubled as the U-Haul rep, and he did handle the drop-off in a professional manner.



The location was fine and the employee at the shell station was nice and helpful but the uhaul online experience was terrible and picking the van up became a long hassle. Also, the van smelled like funky old cigarettes.



Extra charges that were not on original estimate showed up on final bill. Appears dishonest.

Filled gas into the Van at 6:57 PM, Keys were given to cashier at 7:00pm This was a 1 day rental. Please advise

Very easy, after filling fuel, the attendant parked the truck for me. Made the whole operation very smooth.



I had an issue with Uhaul at a different location, and this location was very accommodating and helpful!

When I returned the U-haul, the gentleman who helped me check the truck back in was polite and tried to answer my questions. His colleague, Victor, however, was rude and unprofessional and made U-haul look really, really bad to all in the lobby. I simply had a question about the blankets and wanted to know the difference between going to my new home a half a mile away or just paying for the missing blankets. While the one guy was looking this info up online, Victor yelled at me and stated that I would need to leave a payment of $21 for the blankets because the one polite guy was looking this info up. The way he yelled it at me made the three other people and the polite guy who works for U-haul look at him like he had lost his mind. When Victor saw that everyone was looking at him and his rudeness, he tried to back peddle but I just told him "Bill me. What's your full name" which he did not give to me. I do not know what happened to the staff and training that U-haul normally had in the past but it is not part of the company any longer. I will not be renting from them in the future.

Booked online but wasn't able to get the car quickly even though I had logged all if my info

Alyssa G. on


Was charged for items I didn't even have

Jason P. on


The poor cashier had no help and his computer was so slow it literally took him 30 minutes to process my order because he kept having to help people get gas and his computer was super slow.

Gary P. on


Bad service at this location. It's a gas station so no one to help get you a truck and you have to wait a long time. Only drove 4 miles and put 1/2 gallon in tank and they charged me 6.95 for low gas. Had all kinds of stories and lies about why. I usually go down the street but they were out of trucks and sorry I had to end up at Shell gas station gett My ripped off and time wasted!!!!!

Only issue is I dropped ofd the Van at 5am to the Shell Gas station & the attendent didnt sign the Van back in he said the owner would do that later in the day & send me an email. The owner never sent it to me so I had to call to get the email, which Victor helped as he seemed to understand the procedures better then the owner. And as far as the attendent not signing it is an issue because if the Van were to be stolen or damaged before its inspected I could mistakenly be charged for damages I didnt create or all kinds of nefarious actions coyld occur. I think going forward the attendent SHOULD have to inspect the outside of the vehicle & note any problems or N/A for no problems but that should be the BARE minimum. Other then that it was convenient & the staff were helpful

Van had the engine light on so we were delayed by two hours getting started on our move.
