Customer Reviews


Outside of vehicle windshield was very dirty, lots of bug droppings. Vehicle was picked with low fuel light on. Had to find a gas station in an area I was not familiar with. Location pickup was not maintained well.

Remunda A.

I was worried about my experience due to the reviews but everything went fine. My schedule reservation went very smooth and the drop-off after 4 hours was easy. No problems. Thank you.

Somebody from UHaul called us and requested the UHaul back hours before our deadline. We arrived a day late to work because of our UHaul breakdown, thus we didn't get to unpack as fast and couldn't have the UHaul in *a day early* like we had expected. So a man called from UHaul and was in such a hurry to get the van back so he offered to pick it up. I was at work and not able to make it home until late in the day and since he was so adamant about picking it up, I didn't get to fill up with gas on the way to the UHaul dropoff... So now we are charged with a huge gas fee because it HAD to get picked up so soon...

Store open at 9am. I pick up the truck on 10/13/20 the guy didn't show until 9:10 am. Then I drop off on 10/14/20. He didn't show up at 9am. I waited for 10 minutes so I drop off the key in the box

Explain at the beginning the drop-off procedure should the gate be closed upon return.


We had a lot of problems with the app upon drop off. It kept freezing and dropping out when trying to upload photos. We then tried to contact customer service to help us check out and waited on hold for 15 minutes at the location. Once a representative answered, they immediately hung up on us.

Shay B.

No one was there when arrived and I ordered a dolly and i did not get a call stating they did have one. Terrible service


Drop off was an issue because my device did not give UHaul website location data. (I tried adjusting settings for over ten minutes, and eventually just stopped the key off in the box without verifying my location. My location share seems to work fine with other apps, so not certain why it would not work with

I refilled the gas to the exact amount as I picked up the van. However, when I got the invoice, it indicated that I didn't fill enough and charged me additional gallon of gas. That's not right.


The truck we rented had 100,000 miles on it, it had NO suspension so our cargo was severely impacted, the steering was so loose that it was hair-raising being next to a big rig and not be able to keep the truck in its own lane, the transmission is completely shot which caused it to stay in low gear with the engine speed greater than 4200 RPM and the brakes are marginal!! Other than that, it was wonderful (not).

Place was closed when I came to pick up and when came to drop off. Pick up was delayed a half hour as a result. Drop off required me going back and forth and calling 1-800 number to figure out what to do with the truck (the website didn't seem to offer any info and the drop box said not to leave key with out going to the website to set something up).

Very good service

I initially requested a pick up time for 9:00AM and this location did not have an available vehicle until 3:00PM. I was not notified of this. I only learned this when I called the location to confirm my pick up time (because I did not have any flexibility on the day I needed the vehicle). There should be a system for the location to confirm that (1) they have the right vehicle available and (2) they have it at the time requested. Other than that, I was happy with the service of this location.

Rufus C.

Great service

Katherine S.

The pricing and communication around rates differed with every representative and customer service person I spoke with. It was inconsistent and confusing.

Mehdi N.

Simon is very friendly and efficient.

Fast Quick Amazing Friendly Service!!


So I tried to reschedule a truck at a different location after reading the reviews on this place. I was concerned that the guy that runs this place would try to add extra charges. Of course he did..I had to return the truck after hours. Here told me to park it on the street and put the keys in the box. Then he called me repeatedly at night as I was finishing up. He said he didn't want to leave the truck on the street so to call him when I dropped it off so he could put it behind the gates. Then he charged me $20 after hours service fee that I never agreed to or thought was possible. I've been doing business with uhaul for 6 years I've rented hundreds if not thousands over the years and I've never had a problem. I knew this guy was a snake before I got there and tried to switch locations but he was the only area that had my size truck. You should not be doing business with this guy, period.

Online check made it much faster. There was one employee there so it was nice to breeze through as he was helping others.

Arnold D.

They we late getting there and they charge me for the truck not being cleaned and it was.

While the pick up of my vehicle got off to a bit of a bumpy start, both the customer service line and the business owner of the business where I was originally supposed to pick up my vehicle at 5501 Shattuck Ave were incredibly helpful and got me into my van relatively quickly and the process was smooth from that point forward. I would strongly recommend them. The location at 640 MacArthur is helpful for drop off even if the yard is closed as there is ample street parking.

Maya A.

Closest one to my house, only issue is that it looks like Uhaul removed all the euro vans and swapped them out with smaller (height) american vans. I reserve the euro vans on purpose, so please put back the euro vans

I was unable to book for the time I wanted and when I got there for different reserved time, I had to wait 30+ minutes which later I was told would cut into my two hours rental time. We had to rush to bring back the truck in 1.5 hours without completing our job. When we returned the we got hustled again because we didn't fill up the tank even though it was within the marked contract. Long story short, they ended up charging additional $14 for the three gallons of gas. We won't be renting from this location or maybe not from Uhaul at all in the future.
