The fact that their trucks are offsite at a lot 5 or so blocks away will prevent me from using this location again.

Barrett F. on


Service was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Sandra M. on


Difficult because the trucks are not on the same lot as the office facility. Hours of operation are not always convenient. Basically the services was above average. I will return again and I will refer customers.

Jordan C. on


Customer service was excellent. Best of any uhaul experience I've ever had.

Parking lot available for anytime pick up

If you are told that a location opens at 8:30 am and when you arrive at 8:45 am and are told the opening is at 9am, that's not cool. Also, my receipt amount is more than I expected.



Manager was not very friendly and somewhat confrontational about pushing for insurance. Was told truck had 1/2 tank of gas but was not 1/2, although he quickly adjusted it. The truck location is a good 10 minute walk from the actual rental station. Not the best experience. Key drop off was convenient, however.

I don't remember signing up for the $15 safemove thing which appeared on my bill, but w/e, not a big deal. Overall, this was the most positive experience I have ever had with renting a truck. Friendly, fast service, and incredibly efficient. Will definitely use this dealer again in the future.

However, gas was only 3/4- cost $45 to fill up with only ~35 miles?



The truck I rented had a very strong smell of urine in the passenger compartment. In addition, the return parking was extremely difficult.

truly enjoyed (!) working with you. Great job and the fact that you do DMV work too is amazing - advertise this more and I'm sure you will get tons of business!

David K. on


Told to return to this location, got there to be told you can't return it here. He finally said, what a mess, we will work it out. Very bad from central booking to mess this end up too.

I was pleased with every aspect of my rental.

best truck rental experience i've ever had. i would definitely return. great customer service.

john v. on


You should disclose that the location of the truck is about a 1/2 mile walk from where you do the paperwork! I took Uber to the location and the uhaul employee said it was just 2 blocks away. Big lie

I arrived 15 minutes prior to my 10am reservation and the man behind the counter did not greet me. I says I reserved a 10ft. truck for six hours 10am to 4pm. He says okay you need (instead of please) bring the truck back at 3pm. I says I can count and like I said I reserved a truck for six hours from 10am to 4pm.. He says okay bring the truck back by 3:30.. I proceeded use my words and say I reserved a 10ft truck for SIX hours. He then says bring it back by 3:45pm. I wanted to walk out the door, but, I had a productive day planned and needed the truck (which he was aware of and therefore rude, honestly did not care and try to play me for a fool). Once again i says I reserved a truck from 10am - 4pm. he says yeah but it's 9:45am and logged time and says the truck is parked up the street and my driver will take you there. I was okay with the truck at another location nearby and getting into the vehicle with the driver, but, I am not okay with the poor customer service and trying to take advantage of a paying customer and starts the clock early using my alloted time to dirve me up the street to the other location (cheap motel) because of the limited parking issie. I am also not okay with the misleading marketing strategy with the ad reading $19.95 a day and chariging $130.00 when all is said and done. You can treat people the way you choose, but, others will know about the unprofessionali and unpleasant way you conduct business and think twice before using the lousy service, When I brought the truck back early his attidtude adjusted (as apparently his plan to double book the truck and attempt manipulate clients backfired and eventualy worked out) My negative comment a direct ressult of your negative behavior. You get what you give. I will never use your service again. Have a super night. Thank you.

everything was excellent about this place, service, location, pick up, drop off, staff!

Returned with a $25.00 gas bill for 1 gal? - 17 miles! Wanted to charge $25. U Haul 'set' fee. Allowed me to go get truck put in $5.of gas reading now way above 'marker/photo' (3.49/gal). Now far 'fuller reading' than take out. Rented at 3...had to have back by 1 or $50. Charge. (Back in time). 'Thought' he said 10 mikes free but no $1./a mille. Swears this is U Haul policy...not theirs. Is that correct? Very nice gentlemen but if U Haul shouldn't advertise 19.95 a day when there is no way that's true!

Kyle W. on
