This particular location was ok, but uhaul as a whole is sub par. Disorganized scheduling system. Confirmed a different location 2 days before then changed day before to this one. People working in the morning were disorganized. Actual gas gauge was different than what was shown on paperwork. Guy in afternoon at drop off was competent.

Awesome customer service



Windows on the truck were dirty, but the rest of the truck was clean. The printing of documents and signing the contract seemed to take an excessive amount of time. However, I had no major complaints and the truck worked very well.

Good Service. Rental process easy and accomodating.

The main U-Haul point of contact at this location, John, is a shining example of customer service. Knowledgeable, friendly, thinking outside the box to give the customer the best possible experience. This location is highly recommend mostly because of him. Also, for a non official U-Haul location, it is the best I have ever used. Plenty of supplies and dollies, etc. Full-service location.

pick up location computer had different information than my original contract.

I was totally impressed by the whole operation...even dropped off at a different location than agreed upon, without paperwork, and was taken care of efficiently and easily...everything online...Bravo!

I would suggest that the manager (of the rental location) accompany the driver to the vehicle to ensure the vehicle is in excellent shape (tires, , and familiarize driver with controls, help driver adjust mirrors before the vehicle leaves the rental location.

We needed a truck quickly and our request was accommodated very professionally and speedily. It was a very busy time (graduation weekend) and I was very pleased with Ben’s efficiency, knowledge, and pleasantness (he took my phone reservation). And the staff at the Arcata Petro Mart were equally pleasant and efficient. Very happy overall.

Glenn K. on


The location is limited only in size and availability. Customer service was excellent and ease of rental was also excellent. Overall a perfect rental from this location.

Be nice and patient with customers, don’t treat them like idiots.

Very professional and helpful. It is annoying that this location doesn't tell you you have to drive the uhaul to another lot and then come back with the key. It's more convenient to be able to drop off at the same place that you clear your contract, but they're doing the best they can and I appreciated the woman who was there and her help.

Everything was good. Just kind of annoying that the uhaul trucks were at a different location than the Uhaul liaison (gas station worker).

Ian K. on


Having to go to the remote lot was a little bit of a pain--maybe pull the trucks you know are going to be rented around to the station.

Need to have more than 1 person to handle check in on trucks at the end of the day. 1 person doing both U-haul and customers in the food store is a bit ridiculous and makes it near impossible to provide any level of customer service. I makes the employees stressed trying to do more than 1 person can reasonably do.

The local company was great. My experience with the corporate end was not so great. I called on Friday to confirm my Saturday reservation and asked if the person was in Eureka at the local branch, she said yes and the truck will be there. Turns out it was not. Thankfully a real person that was really from the Eureka Branch called me before I left to go pick up the truck and told me they did not have the truck in Eureka, but the did Have one in Arcata and they called them and set it up, all was smooth from that point on. There seems to be a great disconnect between you folks answering the phones and what is really happening at the local level.

I checked in online to rent a U-Haul from 10:30am to 10:30pm and confirmed with the owner of Gas-4-Less that I would return the U-Haul at 10:30. I showed up after 12 hours of non-stop moving and the person at gas-4-less told me I could not return it because the U-Haul system closed at 6pm. After arguing that the OWNER told me I could return it, she said ok but I would have to drive to eureka to turn it in.... I had arranged for someone to pick me up at gas4less, not eureka, so I had to convince the person working to try to help me out, and 20 minutes of her unable to complete the request on the gas4less computer, she was finally able to check the rental out... was unable to print the receipt for me to sign, so another 5 minutes of fighting with the printer and finally I was on my way. Make sure you hire folks who can be trained to use computer systems. Don’t waste your customers time and for heavens sake make sure you can back up your agreements without hassle...

Transaction went smoothly and quickly. I would rent from them again.

Nothing on the part of the renter but curious. How long before the deposit is returned to my card?

The 'boss' called me Sunday to say my uhaul would be due Monday by 8:30am. I asked about after hours drop off and he said the station would be open 'til 11pm Sunday night and I could drop it off by then. When I arrived at the station, a very small mini-mart for a gas station, the 'employee' said that uhauls could not be returned after 6pm. I told him the guy who called me said I could drop it off by 11pm. He said that this has happened with many customers; his boss does not explain to them that the computer for uhaul returns shuts down at 6pm. He told me that I could leave the uhaul at their holding lot (1.5 miles down the road at 105 Alder Grove) and return in the morning to finalize the drop off. I did so, but when I returned in the morning the boss told me that he could not finalize the return without the odometer reading. I told him what had happened the night before and he said he would have to go down to the lot in the afternoon for the odometer reading. I called uhaul management right after this and filed a formal complaint.



For customer disputes agent should hv contact uhaul corp to verify their promises on 1 free rental day and also 1st month storage unit free for one way truck rental. Vehicle was tagged for this but not honored.

Do routine maintenance on the trucks to assure that your customer has the best travel experience. Our trucks Check engine light turned on causing the car to only go 45 mph and the truck start to eat gas. Had to fill up 3 more times more then the last time I moved out to where I came from. Worst Moving Experience Ever!!!

Thomas M. on


A little more organized by having the right keys for truck at the station. Otherwise it was hilarious experience and I had a blast it was weird but fun.

Carter B. on


The attendant was very helpful. Tried his best to get me in the truck early. Was thorough with his communication. Truly a pleasure.

Have two people working at 9:00am when you know people are picking up or returning UHauls. The mart does a great business and its hard to go out and check the equipment w/o help for customers.
