Charges me an entire day for being an hour late!! What a joke.

This location has a great team, well organized. The problem is the parking lot is too congested to get in and out of especially with a trailer. If there is no other site who can provide a trailer then I would rent from them again, otherwise I would rent elsewhere.

The man who helped me was fast and efficient, I love using uhaul because 10 years ago when I broke down using a uhaul truck. They helped our family out, even paying for our hotel while they efficiently fixed the truck....keep up the good work

I reserved for 5:30 PM, I get there to pick up and they said I was late. They said I reserved for 2:30 PM. When I dropped off, they said I owe more money. I had to call the 1 800 # to get it straightened out. When I reserved, it asked for pick-up time, but no drop off time.

The employees are great and very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this location in an instant because of the guy that was working. Thank you for everything.

Since the rating selections do not include uhaul corporate customer service, I’ll rate it here. Buyer beware of their fuel policy! If you encounter the misfortune during refueling as I did, you won’t be reimbursed the $30 overage like I was charged. I inadvertently put in a quarter tank over what I intended because the truck’s gauge didn’t start moving until I pumped over the amount that I needed. Curious that uhaul has their denial of reimbursement in the first sentence of the contract’s fine print. This happens a lot and it’s gravy for their contractor gas stations. FIND OUT HOW BIG THE TRUCK’S GAS TANK IS BEFORE FILLING! Then do the math, I asked the attendant, but he jut played dumb. I hope this help you.

Just one thing. As I told the check-in lady when I returned the truck in Denver, the left headlight was out. That I discovered the first time I used the lights, but it would have been better had the rental location checked that all lights were in order before renting it out. That said, the rental agents everywhere in Salem were helpful, polite and sympathetic to my predicament of having been allowed to book a van online for a one-way trip. Also, the 1491 Lancaster Shell was very, very busy, so I understand how the headlight got overlooked.

This is a Mini Mart in a busy gas station. They lost my drop off records. I got a call from U Haul 4 days later asking where is the truck. I drove to the " Mini Mart" to investigate my self. The truck was not where I parked it. I called back U Haul and that is when they told me they found it at another location it had been transfered. Grade (F)

Even though I am giving positive star ratings for these exact locations, my overall experience with this rental was abysmal. I am not blaming the franchisees, but UHaul customer service on their website reservation system and phone call customer service. Those are the areas I wouldn't even give one star to. After 3 different reservation switches on the day I was supposed to pick up, I was left feeling furious and beyond stressed. The website that I made my reservation with on July 9 let me rent for 3 days (as needed) for the weekend. Just 6 hours before pick up, I got a phone call telling me my reservation wasn't possible and it "shouldn't have let me rent for that long". Your weekend policy of only allowing customers to rent for 24 hours is absolutely ridiculous. Increase your fleet if you can't keep your promises as your customer service phone message says. The customer service rep who called AFTER my initial "we can't keep your reservation" phone call from South Salem UHaul, was rude, aggressive, and not helpful. Very upsetting to be told that what I thought was available wasn't, and a take it or leave it attitude. "You can drive to a further location for what you want and pick it up". How about UHaul helping with the situation and getting the truck I had reserved to the location I was promised instead of making ME drive further away for what I needed?? I wish I had her name to give to you because it was pretty terrible. Around 10:30am PST. About an hour and a half before our new 4:00 pick up location I got ANOTHER phone call from Shay, a customer service rep offering to upgrade our truck for the inconvenience of the earlier situation. At that point, I don't want any more changes. I don't want a bigger truck due to our property constraints and loading up. Lo and behold, a half hour before we were scheduled to pick up our moving truck, I get a text telling me our reservation - which I did not approve- was scheduled for yet another location, even farther away for us. Yes, the significant discount was nice. But for all the hassle in a matter of hours on the day of moving, it was pretty terrible and unbelievable that I had yet another "reservation" location to pick up at. I seriously do not understand UHaul's policies or customer service. I have spent roughly $3000 over the last 4 years with UHaul. And this is not an isolated incident. I've had similar problems in the past but this was the worst. I think I'll try Penske for awhile until you can get things figured out on your website for a more accurate reservation experience, and have phone customer service reps who listen to your customers. Poor business UHaul corporate.

This location was great! It might be helpful is there was a sign somewhere that told people the pickup is inside the gas station.

Mark S. on


Way too busy. The man was on top of it and he should get major props for being so professional, but it was a madhouse.

Dorothy P. on


I do not blame the Salem Shell for a disappointing experience. After a phone call to U-Haul I rented a 26' truck, dolly and a dozen moving blankets with the truck to be picked up in Dallas, Oregon. then I get an e-mail we have to go to east side of Salem to get truck. we get there and no 26' truck and no dolly. i have to spend $69.99 to buy a dolly. The 20' truck did not hold all of my belongings so now I have the expense of moving the rest by the pickup truck load. I would never recommend to anyone to use your company. Not at all as advertised. Completely unorganized.

The mother's attic leaked during the rainstorm and Destroy $280 worth of RC circuit boards I told the Hillsboro or-- location. Truck started overheating 5 miles into the drive home from where I picked it up at had to add a half a gallon of water into oil quarts of my own after that truck seem to be doing better it was 2 quarts of oil. Also was told at the Lancaster location located in Salem Oregon that there would be a dolly a utility dolly that I could use and it was included in my rental agreement when I got there they wanted me to go 7 miles to go get another utility Dolly because they were wrong I've had a very troubling experience with you guys and I hope that one day you guys can make it better for someone else so they don't have to go through the same things I went through thank you.



A+. Being able to fill up the tank at the drop off point is extremely convenient. Station staff who operated fuel pump was also able to process the equipment return, and even lent me a broom to help avoid the service fee! My new favorite location.
