Rear sliding door was almost impossible to open as it bound in the track.

i had the worst experience with this company ever. 5 reservations that were incorrect. over charged for the equipment. the people who answered the phone with 1800goUhaul totally gave me wrong information and cancelled the uhaul i needed and put me in a huge bind with my landlord and being able to move out in time not to be charged. They also hung up on me and transferred me to a non working phone number and a closed office on multiple occasions without attempting to listen to the reason i was calling. not to mention the long hold times. the only person who was at all helpful was Jed. He called me and went the extra mile to help me get a truck after my reservations were totally screwed up and even cancelled or expired for no reason. I sat out at the pick up location for 2hours and he answered the phone in his sleep and helped me to get the keys to a truck. I requested to have the uhaul for 24 hours and it was confirmed originally by a woman on the phone. when i finally got the truck it was the wrong size and the wrong rental time. so i had no choice but to return it later than the reservation time. i was double charged and i put more gas in then what i started with. not at all happy with this company and the lack of communication with me as the customer. I will not recommend this place. After i had the truck i was called by a uhaul rep. stating that i took a cargo van and i feel he was accusing me of driving off his lot with the van. I dont appreciate that. as hard as it was to take photos of my id and self to get the keys to the small truck i didn't reserve i am appalled at the idea that someone could actually get away with a van without id on there smartphone. unfair billing and i dont think i was treated fairly. Jed was new to tje company and he deserves a promotion and recognition for his service. he's DEFINETLY an assett to the company

The worker did not know what he was doing and was not professional at all he charged us extra then said the receipt was going to be emailed to me but I never received the receipt.

The details of the contract were not communicated (I.e. cleaning). Also, the appropriate truck was not available and we had to wait over 30 mins for pickup.

This is an older location so more difficult to keep up. Good for drop off and pick-up though.

Louis M. en


The process to check in the return was total bullshit. Nobody around, phone support couldn’t or wouldn’t help checking in the vehicle. I was forced to install the U-Haul app on my phone to check it in, and take a bunch of pictures. That’s not my job.

We were charged for a gas tank refill that wasn't needed. We had filled the truck about 5 miles from the location and topped off the tank. When we returned the truck, the attendant did not inspect the truck and only e-mailed us a receipt which included the additional gas charge.

Mike was working there is very rude person and always fighting with me at pick up and dropped



I made arrangements to pick the truck up at 9:00 only to discover, after I arrived, that the facility didn't open until 10:00. I was outside, in the wind trying to switch my reservation over to 24hr pick up so I didn't have to wait outside for over an hour to get the truck. The representatives on-line, however, were very understanding and helpful.

checking out a vehicle remotely was a long process that was made difficult with poor connectivity.

Customer service was excellent!

The service has improved a great deal from the last time we used U-Haul at this location. I was pleasantly surprised by the employee, he was very friendly and informed, much better than the last one we had dealings with at this location.

Check in was smooth after attendant finally came in. He seemed annoyed I was there at first. But in the end helped me smoothly and seamlessly

Brian B. en

We've used your business several times. It always seems like you are short on help when we come in.

Jacob J. en


Just felt small

Kurt K. en


I used the app to return. No interaction with employee. This is not a typical Uhaul location. This is a Auto Mech shop that provides Uhaul rental. At times I've had to wait for them to get free'd up.

Building was junky. Customer service was ok, but person did not go over vehicle with me.

Michael H. en


The truck was clean, but the steering was extremely loose. It felt very rickety, like I had to manage oversteering.

I did not get an equipment piece (utility dolly), gas gauge was not as full as attendant described.

I would like to understand the ridiculous price gap between what I was supposed to pay vs. what I was charged. When I reserved online (for the 26' truck) it said 39.95 plus $1.09/mile. I couldn't have driven it more than 15 that's approximately $56.30. When I went to pick up the vehicle, he said the estimate would be about $80 (which I assumed was only because it would need to be adjusted for the actual mileage driven). Then, I drop off the vehicle and all of a sudden it's approximately $102. What the hell U-Haul!? I've rented a U-Haul twice now, and both times they've pulled some shady crap, so needless to say I will figure something else out from now'll never see my money again.
