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.

Good customer service provided

Chase C. on


this location is a hot mess. i did the express check out and there was only one guy and I still have to wait 35 minutes. Only to find out the pick up location is actually like 12 blocks away. What a joke. Oh and it's filthy.

Sheila R. on


I was able to pickup my 10' truck at the exact time I asked for without any problems. Would recommend!

Allan E. on


Customer service was excellent! Should advise customers where to park if they return late and gates are locked.

David L. on


Have the vans unlocked / key accessible. Contact at location was not able to be contacted. Trucks are located at separate location where one must drive to

Amber R. on


I went to self-pickup the UHaul and discovered the keys were not in the truck! Instead I had to go to a different location and pick up a smaller van. The only reason I am giving 2 stars instead of one is because the manager helped us locate a different Uhaul and helped us make arrangements. He was very helpful and attentive.



no improvements, great customer service

Inconvenient location of van from main office means walk 1/2 mile after drop off unless the shuttle driver is available. Or you may drive your car and park there. But I didn't not knowing this and I used vehicle overnight. This also means that if you drop off the van at night and didn't drive your own car, you're walking back at night for the key drop off. At least have a key drop off at the van site to spare the customer the need to walk to the office.

I was charged for $14.00 for coverage when I did not enroll for! This is fraud and unethical. I purposely double checked my reservation before picking up that there was no insurance coverage added. After dropping off my car, you guys then charge me without my consent. I will YELP this location and many other location about UHAUL's unethical business strategy. I will also BLOG about this situation. When I called your customer service, there was nothing you guys can do about it.

The person helping tried to charge me for insurance which I had declined already online with express check-in. He was a bit rude as well. No one came to walk me around the truck checking for dents and damage etc.
