They called because they couldn't find the trailer & I had dropped off 3 days earlier. Waiting on a answer.

While the location and personal were wonderful, your reservation department is horrible. You advertise a 17’ truck, but it’s really a 15’ truck with an overhead compartment. I needed 16 feet for what I was moving and I had to make two trips because I needed 16 linear feet. FALSE ADVERTISING!!!

the trail was rusted I thought the the latching hooks were going to brake while we carried my bike

The u-Haul system worked VERY slowly for the woman who helped us in Ridgecrest. It didn’t really bother me but I felt sorry for her. But she was very polite and did a great job.

Not the friendliest staff. Trailer popped off the ball while driving. The boy who helped hook it up didn't seem to know what he was doing. Couldn't even direct the backup good.

AC did not work otherwise great truck

Nancy B. on


Tell the personnel that when someone has a CDL, it is much easier to BACK the trailer in instead of pulling through. Instinctively easier for someone used to backing trailers in.



I was in and out in minutes and the same when I took it back



it was convenient annd cheaper than the competition.



great location

great uhaul store

The trucks exhaust was so loud that my ears are still ringing 3 days after I finished driving. The seats are not as comfortable as other rental trucks. Very very upset for the amount of money spent.

Allowing me to reserve and pay for a 26' truck only to have someone call me and tell me that 15' was the largest available was annoying. It was a waste of time.

windshield of truck was very dirty/bugs. Needed to be cleaned. Everything else was very good.



The location and the people who helped me were fine. However the truck was not ready. The key, the blankets and the dolly were nowhere to be found. Your app for truck share was a disaster. I spent over an hour trying to make it work as well as your phone customer service. It came down to your customers service rep saying guess we'll just have to try another day and I will give you a discount! Not acceptable. It was only because a random employee of the store showed up and was able to help me and I was able to take care of the move. I will not use this service again If your app is the only alternative. You forget that not all locations have fast enough phone service to handle this. Also I had to changes setting on my phone to make it work. And don't forget there are many people who don't use smart phones or don't know enough about them to be able to use it. I have used uhaul for many moves in the past. This was my first bad experience. However it may be my last.

Rented 10' online for this location, was told later there was 10' but I got upgraded to 15'. The location given for this was not the original reservation location. Later called asking if I can rent at 8 instead of 9; no problem. Go to 2nd location at 8am and I'm told they don't have anything for me there but I was upgraded to 17' at original location. Got the truck and everything went fine, would just like a little less run around next time.



One of the rails on the car trailer came out on our return trip. Upon inspection, the rail that came out had been replaced and re-welded prior to our rental. There was not a safety clip or anything to help it stay in place. This is not the fault of the place that rented it, but a design and safety issue.There was a front strap that went around the front tires, but nothing for the rear of the car. We borrowed a strap from a neighbor to make sure the car would not move when being transported.

The woman who set us up was extremely rude, I will not go to that location ever again.



People very nice and friendly.



The financial transaction did not go quickly. The Visa transaction did not go through on the computer in a timely manner, so the clerk called in to the main office and had the visa transaction done over the phone. That was odd that the UHaul computer would not allow the visa transaction to go through.



The process to rent was extremely over the top! There are less regulations involved in renting a car from Enterprise/Avis rental agency than renting a pickup truck from Uhaul! It was ridiculous! The tow forms of ID I do understand, but you SHOULD NOT require a hold on a military ID...that enters into a lot of legal issues with the security behind military ID cards. The regulations and restrictions, were just too over the top.

Make sure you do a walk around and check the gas and mileage carefully before driving off. I was just handed the key. I had to do the walk around myself and found several scratches on the truck. I had to go get the gentle man who gave me the key so that he would put stickers on them and in order to eliminate the possible arguments when I return the truck. I also did check the mileage but since I was rushing I forgot to check the gas. It was an eighth of the tank off when I remember to look at when I was two blocks away (at the corner of Downs and Upjohn when I saw the gas station). I could have turned around and argued about the gas. I am not sure how they would have responded but I was late for the move and decided not to turn around and spend time on waiting in the line again. So I ended up filling for the gas that I didn't use. It's a large truck so, one eight of a tank is quite some gas. The fact that I was responsible for all the check outs and not even being accurate on their part bothers me. My advice to you is do the walk around, check the gas and mileage. Also, call your insurance and ask whether such rental is covered. Don't spend (waste?) your money buying their insurance if your insurance covers it already. Good luck and happy moving.

they are always super helpful here. It will always be my go-to place to pickup and return my rentals!

I would not recommend doing the "express checkout" online because NONE of my information was saved, so I had to have it all re-entered by the cashier at the High Desert Home Center when I got there that morning to pick up my rental. The cashier told me that I had not entered the correct information because apparently the person who books the uhaul must also be listed as the primary driver. This was not made clear when I completed the online forms.
