Firstly, be very clear about where the pick up location is. My email receipt when booking told me to go to the Lincoln Blvd address, and when I got there I was informed I needed to go to Ocean Park. After picking up my key, I had to drive even further to the Pavilions Motel to pick up the car. This should have never happened. I booked the truck for the U-Haul of Santa Monica location on Lincoln and I expected the vehicle to be there, I should not have had to go on a wild goose chase trying to find the correct location.

I wanted the smallest pick up. Didn't have one bur charged me the small pickup rate. I wish in the advertising that you mention tax, gas and miles charges. I twas a super small job, no more than an hour I my bill was $33.



Air conditioning did not work. Issues with guy at location.

Harry was wonderful. He actually took me to the pick up location and met me there to confirm mileage.

Warn customers that the actual truck location is over half a mile down the road from the office at a motel, and that customers can park in the lot. I had to walk/jog under a time crunch. Also, improve your credit card system because I had to wait literally 20 minutes for my card to be run. It ended up not even working and I had to give a new card number over the phone the next day or risk being charged more. Last, the clerk needs to know what is available in the truck; I was told no dollies were available but then it turned out there was already a dolly available to rent fixed in the truck.

A bit weird with location of trucks down the road from the office, but the guys were nice and helpful and the van performed perfectly. A good experience. Thank you.

The owner, Harry was extremely rude on the phone. I needed to pick up the rental at 9am, and there was nobody at the pick up location until 9:10. When I called him about it, he said "then go somewhere else!". Your customers shouldn't be adjusting their schedule based on your sweet time. Honey you will have a tough time with your business when you say you dont care instead of apologizing.

Despite me phoning on Friday to confirm our reservation there was no truck ready for us at the location we’d arranged. Instead we had to drive miles to another location which messed up our entire schedule. Very disappointed

Easy in and out. Overall pleasurable experience!

The rental location is actually a tiny hut by a car repair shop. After you show your driver's license and credit card, you are directed to the pickup spot which is half a mile away and has parking space. Better pickup instructions would have been helpful. When I first got there I was confused and paid for metered parking which I could have avoided. Otherwise it was a very easy and pleasant experience.

I went to the drop off location, which was full of rental and cars needing repair. There was no place to park the U-Haul and no one was there. I called the phone number, and was told to drive about a half mile to the Pavillion hotel. I was then instructed to park the Ugaul there and drop the keys in the drop box. It was very confusing.



Vehicle was parked six blocks from office...should be on site or within a block. Attendant didn't ask for truck keys when returning vehicle. I almost went home with them.
