Customer Reviews



The gas tank was not full even though the vague showed full. It cost $17 worth of gas to travel less than 20 miles.

The manager was first class and the experience with the truck and the moving day was great. But when we were looking to choose the self rental space, the guy who worked there on a Saturday 1 week ago was rude, not kind and not helpful. When i told him at the end that it wouldn't hurt him to smile and be kind, he said he didn't get paid to do that. Also, when i asked him if he could show me a unit, he gave me a map and said see it yourself. Maybe he was just having a bad day, but we immediately took U-Haul off the list for the self rental unit. We ended up at Guardian near Whole Foods.

Rental agent was professional, yet friendly. Facility was immaculate. The entire process went smoothly from beginning to end. I will definitely go to U-Haul again and recommend it to others.

Remember furniture pads and don't charge for them when you forget to include them with the rental.

Someone gave you an fake email, namely mine. And now I’m getting spammed. Don’t you verify names??!?!

I was very disappointed that I had a noon reservation and no one was there. I has to wait almost an HOUR to pick up my truck. The truck also had a check engine or some kind of light on that had me concerned but I was so late and my movers had arrived that I ignored it. Other than that, it was easy to sign up over the phone to make a reservation. When someone did actually help me, they were good.

The first van wasn't clean enough to the employee's satisfaction, so he graciously offered me a different one - I really appreciated his standards!

Friendly and courteous!

Nothing. I was completely satisfied with the gentlemen who serviced me. They were professional, knowledgeable, polite & friendly. This was my first time renting from this location & I will definitely use again as well as refer other people to this location. They made my stressful, frustrating day a lot more pleasant. Thank you very much gentleman.

Manager wasn't at his desk when we returned vehicle. We tried to check out online, but that didn't work. Eventually manager returned, but after a long wait. Recommend improving return process.

Calvin Beck was quite helpful and he called me back about my pricing concern. He, himself, also got confused and told me that he would look into the matter and call me in 30 minutes. However, he did not get back at me at all. All in all, this was a negative experience and it made U-Haul look extremely unprofessional. I will not be recommending this location to anyone.

Fervinado L. on


Nothing, Calvin Beck was exceptional, we were in and out quickly and with no problems.

the representative is really not helpful

mike a. on


The guy who helped me was efficient and great at customer service. Very nice



The agent was very unprofessional. He tossed my keys to me over the desk as he did not want to get up and he was extremely rude when I returned the truck, acting impatiently as if I were bothering him.

Tessa W. on


I walked all around the facility looking for an employee since there was nobody in the office and there was no way to notify anyone for help. I eventually ended up finding Calvin Beck, who was very pleasant and helpful (Thanks Calvin!). Maybe there should be a bell to ring? To let employees know they have a customer waiting. Other than that, it was an easy-going experience.
