Customer Reviews

Omar S.

Truck was extra dirty in and outside also, not following Covid safety guidelines at all putting our life in risk. The truck was full of trash and even dirty face masks. Very disappointed

Amber H.

Make sure trailer is clean and don't give out dirty blankets.

vincent G.

Vehicle was ready upon arrival and professional customer service.


The truck was the biggest piece of crap I have ever driven. the steering column and power steering were broken. Trying to keep that truck in a lane on the 8 was a joke. It was scary to drive. Literally. Very helpful and friendly staff. Truck was garbage.


Friendly staff, good equipment, satisfied

Employees at this location were friendly and helpful. Do NOT use U-Haul if it can be avoided at all. I originally had a one-way reservation, which they cancelled at the last minute without apology. I then had to reserve a truck to be picked up and returned at the same location which increased my rate by $350. After all that, U-Haul changed my rental pickup location 3 times in 24 hours. Again, avoid this company at all costs.

It was an awful experience. We had to wait over an hour and we checked in online. They gave us the wrong truck at first and then the truck they gave us they told us they did not sanitize even though there was Covid warnings all over our county. It had no gas in it And we couldn't even find the gas cap. It was a ridiculous experience and we would never ever ever rent a U-Haul from that location again. I think they have too many businesses going on at once over there that they cannot handle.

Hildefonso V.

More communication if the truck is not available let us know a day before.

Yhonatan B.

Was easy to return the vehicle after hours on your site, however the key did not fit in the return box and I had to make a separate trip out the next day. I had tried to call the 1800 number that night but was on hold for quite some time.

Have someone who does U-Haul primarily so you don't have wait in the customer lines for general sales and car washes.


Very polite, everything was done on time. Good experience from everyone involved.

Quick and efficient 5star rating

The business opens at 8:00 am and the employee walked in at 8 to open the location. I rented a van for 24 hrs. returning it a little after 5:00pm. The location closes at 5 pm and the same clerk who served me in the morning was closing the register. He told me to drop the keys into the after hours box. They processed the return at 9:00 am the next morning, charging me a full second day rental.

David H.

Made the reservation online I showed up Everything was ready to go and the staff was extremely helpful I would definitely recommend this place to rent a U-Haul

Michael D.

Has the BEST staff but need newer vehicles!!!!


This uhual place was wonderful. The check in mid check out process was wonderful. The actual uhual seemed to struggle a little to drive but that was probably because it was heavy and loaded to the brim. Overall all of the guys we interacted with were wonderful.

Michael M.

There was damage to the fender which could have caused a problem on the road but the pick up location was eager to correct it issue. I definable recommend both the pick up and drop off locations.

marcus S.

Offer unlimited miles I didn't know any better and didn't get unlimited miles and I used the 19.95 truck for less than 3 hours and I got charged 119 dollars for 52 miles driven and less than 5 gallons of gas I feel like I was taking advantage of

First i had my rsvp at 830am for a R/T at midway drive in san diego. They called me up the last minute that there have no r/t and sent me to broadway st in chula vista. Got there 9am and I was told there that the r/t trailer was not returned on time so have to wait. Finally r/t came at 945am and did the paperwork and finally hooked up. Then manager came out saying r/t is reported broken and cannot use. Took another 30 mins to find avbl trailer. They sent me to the bradley location and got a 6x12 close trlr which is way too big for what i need. BUt i had no choice and just bite the bullet. Finally left uhaul at around 1130am. I mean isnt this a very annoying, maddening and just plain inconvenience? Nobody at uhaul even said sorry for what happened. Its like just another normal day at work. I dont even expect anymore who would read this (or even bother to read this) to reach out and apologize. Uhaul at western av in LA said they will email my receipt and I received nothing.

Very polite and efficient.
