These guys are great! They are always the nicest.



The experience I had with Harry was extremely positive. He was a complete professional, courteous and helpful, and very patient with me as I misunderstood his clear return instructions. He really made the entire process a fantastic one, and I would work with Harry again and recommend him HIGHLY to friends!



This is a great place to rent a U-haul and they hook it up for you especially if you’re only moving locally. I would highly recommend using this location for fast, clean and professional service. Thank you guys!!

Harry was great, will use location again

This location was efficient, professional, and excellent.



The Computer was down. I got a receipt written on a piece of paper. And the location was kind of seedy. Other than that. Everything else was awesome.



My pick up reservation was for 2:30 pm. I received a phone call at 12:20 PM informing me that, due to a last minute corporate meeting, the location had to close early and that I needed to pick up the vehicle before 2 pm or forfeit my reservation. I will not use that location again and will warn friends and family that it is unreliable.



I went to get gas before I returned the truck. I went 19 miles and got 2.04 gallons of gas. When I received the bill a few hours later they had charged me for an additional 2 gallons of gas at $4.75 per gallon for a total of $9.50. This is a scam that location is running. I have the receipt and called the location and the guy told me to "fuck off", there was nothing he could do. Horrible customer service!

The truck location and the site were not at the same place. Wasn't a problem, but I drove around for a bit thinking I was at the wrong place because their were no trucks around. Person at the counter was very friendly and explained everything very well. Pickup and drop-off were very easy. Would absolutely use again and would recommend.

Couldnt find the place.. need bigger sign !!



The help and the agents at both the pick up and drop off locations were great. The problem I have is when making a reservation, I picked a location for pick up that was close to an airport, as I was flying in to move my belonings. The location for pick up was changed twice on me. I ended up not even being able to pick up a truck in the same city. This necessitated a $60 Cab Ride. As much as I appreciated the help by your franchise agents. Since Uhaul itself can not seem to maintain their reservations, I suspect I will be using one of your competitors moving forward.

My pick-up was guaranteed at 11:30AM. Nobody was working until after 12PM, therefore I did not get my rental cargo van until an hour after my pick-up time. The Uhaul worker said that the gas tank would be filled 3/4th of the tank and it was not. It was filled halfway but I was still held responsible for filling up the tank 3/4th of the way or be charged $30.

Not a thing! Henry was super friendly and patient when we ran a little late on our pickup and made returning our truck super easy. Our rental experience was much smoother than we expected.

I couldn't pick up truck at scheduled time since they didn't open until an hour later. I was supposed to be able to pick up using my phone, but truck was at a different lot half a mile away and remote pick up was not an option. I selected option for no insurance coverage when making the reservation online but was charged anyway. Mileage was different on truck from contract, resulting in higher charge. I mentioned it when returning but no adjustment was made.

It worked, having the trucks a half mile away wasn't fun but I managed. Truck was ok, not to dirty but could have used a clean out. Tough pick up and drop off because of tight spaces but I've driven trucks for years and managed. Would have been brutal on a rookie driver.

The vehicle I rented told me it had 5% oil life left. I was a little nervous the oil would run out while i was driving.

Not crazy about the rentals being parked off property (generally) and a long 2-block walk between Pico and Ocean. However, I was up for a walk and the salesperson offered a ride, so okay for that day. But would recommend that the rental be brought to the facility before hand. Sales person very personable and helpful. Overall a very pleasant experience and convenient for what I needed to accomplish.

Website was miss leading about self pickup. Once there found I had to go to lot in a not good area to pickup truck. Even in middle of day I did not want to leave my car in the lot.



Host was hospitable. Vehicles are not at this address, but parked off-site 1 mile away - not convenient. There was next to no gas in the truck at pick-up. If U-haul charges gas refill premium price/gallon plus the extra fee at drop-off, then it should actually service the vehicle and fill the tank for the next guy. The windshield still had wax writing on the it from ? and was besides this so dirty with bugs it was hard to see through. I had to drive back to the office for their elbow grease. This even though it was a brand new (500miles) truck.

Kept my sun glasses that I left in the truck so I was able to pick them up later.

Be forward with pricing



The gentleman who helped me was extremely efficient and very nice. I was in and out in 5 minutes and he helped me bring my equipment to the truck. Very friendly - I will definitely recommend this location to friends.
