Very poorly maintained equipment.

Picked up the truck and took it to the gas station to put gas in it. While I was pumping gas I heard it just dumping out the bottom. The uhaul/ gas clerk came out and said the gas hose was stolen at their location where they park the cars. With no way back to the lot to pick up our car we had to walk all the way to my house to pick up another car so we could drive it to the lot to see if another uhaul truck would be in working order. The next truck ended up working and was able to move my stuff after an hour of figuring this all out.



Have onsite vechicles, have the actual vehicle that was reserved, have a place to park the vehicle at the gas station. Stop making your customers jump through hoops in order to complete their rental.

The staff at this location were super helpful. The location itself is a bit strange in that you have to have someone take you to the gas station (petro mart), pick up the key and place the deposit, have someone drive you to where the U-Haul trucks are located, then you have to drive the Uhaul all the way back to the petro mart to start the contract. When you’re done you have to bring it to petro to be checked, then drive it yourself back to the Uhaul lot, then have someone drive you from the lot back to Petro to drop off the key and end the contract. Kind of a lot of steps, just saying. The Uhaul truck was in great condition and made my move easier. Thanks

Very small area to rent truck and run a gas station. I understand the flow of a gas station needs to run. But it was a little chaotic and we were shuffled to the side several times to have the gas station customers come and go.

Uhaul in Eureka and Arcata suck. I'll drive 500 miles to rent from Penske.

Laura L. on


Nothing. The customer service was incredible and above and beyond. The Gas 4 Less attendees were so kind, and very helpful in assisting me with a last minute move.

Stanton R. on


Good experience and extremely convenient location for us. Only two concerns: the windshield was really dirty and the gas tank should be filled (especially when you pick up the truck at a gas station.) The tank was filled 1/4 and 3/8, making it difficult to refill when we returned the truck. Other than that, all went well!

Allison R. on


Have the truck available at the pick up location.

Jonathan L. on


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.

Memory R. on


Good Service. Rental process easy and accomodating.

George G. on


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.

Tigran K. on


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

Kelleen P. on


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.

Dawn C. on


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.

Maya M. on


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

Aylea M. on


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.

Sarah G. on


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.

Roger H. on


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.
