The trick has a problem with the fuel gauge. I bought gas when it was 1/4 and it only took 7 gal. Then out read 3/4. The second time I bought gas it was almost to empty. It took 8 gal and there gauge then read a little over half. Having to buy has twice in a 200 mile trip is bad and both times put together I could only get about half the gas the truck should hold. I am glad ii wasn't going on a longer trip.



Was great to deal with so very nice would use again. Thanks Jackie

The attendant said the safety chains are long and uhaul.uses the same.size on all.trailers. In light of this during my trip.tbe safery chains little by little broke apart and then the safety brake.chain couldn't onnect any longer.It was 220 miles into Ca. so I chanced it ok as I drove 1700 already. Receiving location was excellent.

He Did not connect trailer well enough to the towing vehicle - came off of towing vehicle while loading car into the flat bed. I was straddling the trailer tongue guiding the car on and was struck between the legs with the trailer tongue when it forcefully shot up- lost skin on inside of both calves and have deep tissue bruising to inner thighs. Not happy at all. Could have lost (the boys) if I was closer to the truck. He also connected the brake chain to the other chains and not the vehicle....all around a bad hook up on his part

I returned the trailer after one day. You charged me for two.



I'm being overcharged by 175 miles. Also the transmission on the truck was revving high when downshifting and the unit leaked water from 4 different spots in the roof getting my stuff all wet.

Everything was quick and easy for us!

Excellent customer service



Excessively charged for fuel - do not use U-Haul.

I drove my rental truck no more than 2 miles and the anti lock brake system lamp came on. Made me very uneasy driving this unfamiliar vehicle with a possible brake system problem. Called Uhaul customer service and was promised a call from the renting location next day, of course I never received a call. Will not do business again.

Take pictures of the gas and mileage both when you pick the truck up and dropping it off.

Deborah C. on


The first stop sign out of the location is often busy. It was easier to manage a right turn there since that has a place to turn around back to the main exit on Randall Rd.



Made a difficult move a little less stressful. Very accommodating. Would use again. Thank you!!

Short conversation, very professional and well spoken clerk. 10/10.

The trailer was fine except for two items. A couple of tire rims were extremely rusty with peeling paint. They seemed okay functionally but a little Rustoleum would have eased my mind. Also, one side tie rail was replaced with something so small it was almost useless.



There was a huge oil stain of some sart soaked into the bed of the van and it got all over my mattress. It smelled and I would like a refund for my experience
