Customer Reviews

Julianne W.

Nadir was great! Uhauls check in app doesn't work (it couldn't read my GPS) so they tried to charge me a return service fee of $20. Nadir fixed the issue for me and was kind in person. Convenient location!

Keith R.

Robert F.

Christina M.

This location stands out among the rest. Exceptional customer service!

Unable to pick my truck up, guilt trip because I was only using it for small amount of miles. Was told there were 12 blankets, only 2 were in the truck and they still charged me for 6.


The mobile check-in process has bugs/issues – it would make me log in twice and the app began saying there was "No Network Connection" even though I did have a connection. I would have to close the app and start the process again (which is time-consuming on the phone and in my case, started to eat into rental time).

Hard to find 2. Was confused which uhaul I made the reservation. Could have used an email with reminder and map

Joseph M.

My experience was excellent. The customer service was friendly and efficient.

Lavada B.

Purchase vans that have automatic locks... It's difficult to lock up every door manually. Other than that, GREAT!

Rod B.

Great truck and service. Thank you.

Mark W.

Vehicle was dirty in the cab and in the cargo area. Would have been nice for both to be cleaner.

Gregory B.

Everything went smoothly, thank God.

Ciara M.

Inform customers that the trailer setting turns on when the truck is turned on. It messes with the driving and makes it harder to go up hills if not towing anything. It's a quick button push to turn off, but if someone doesn't know this, it will make driving hard. But other than that, all good! Thank you!

Alexander R.

Excellent staff

jan J.

I've rented from this location multiple times...always great service!

Corey N.

There was no exterior signage, we drove around for quite some time. No one answered phone for the entire morning, about 3 hours

Jimmie F.

15 ft rental was awesome and well maintained with tons of power! Made a 7 hour drive comfortable. Five stars straight up!

Stacia V.

Extremely rude customer service the guy that was there talked to me like I was nothing. I will never rent here again and let everyone what horrible service I received not to mention the truck I rented was disgusting and smelled like weed. It was clean and I was shocked they would rent a truck that was so dirty. Use a different location to rent a truck!

This location was not bad, but U-haul as a whole was horrible. I reserved a 26ft one-way truck 3 months in advance, 30-days prior to my move date, I modified the pick-up date, which apparently put me back to the end of the line. 1 day before my pick up date, I get a call they do not have my truck, but can offer me a 10 ft one-way truck. How that size compares to a 26ft truck us beyond me. The other offer was to drive 3 hours to the town I was moving to, to pick up a truck. And yes I'd be paying for the extra gas. The last resort option was to do a 2-day in-town rental with a 20ft truck. So now I have a smaller truck and have to drive it back to the town where moves from. Oh and don't forget the gas and paying per mile! Since we got the smaller truck, we had to rent another truck (not from u-haul) to get all of our stuff in one trip. U-haul needs to tell you more than the day before that your truck is not available. Get your shit together and get those one-way trucks back to the towns that need them. Thanks for costing me an extra $600! Side note - the employees at this location were great, but corporate sucks! I will never use u-haul again, nor recommend for one-way moving.
