Riad was great, he made it happen under unusual conditions! Highly recommend this location! Thanks



The welcoming was not very, well, very welcoming. I mistakenly walked into the shop area when I saw the bosses desk stationed in this area. He immediately told me to get out and go into the lobby area located adjacent and near his desk. I know insurance reasons was the cause of his attitude but i wasn't ready for it. The boss didn't say anything to me after directing me. One of the employees then appeared and helped me get the rental out in good time!

At first I was mad because I had checked in and paid for my trailer but still had to wait in a line with 3 people who had not checked in and paid so it took them a long time. I told the person at the register and he ignored me. When I asked him what the point of of checking in early was, he ignored me again. Then we had an issue with hooking up our trailer and 2 other gentlemen went above and beyond to help us so the experience, although lengthy, turned out fine and I am very grateful to these 2 gentlemen. I believe their names are Joseph and Riad. The younger guy checking people in was rude but Joseph and Riad made up for his shortcomings. Thank you!

Never renting there again ! First of all to it was a nightmare to reserve, called and I was told they were too busy to take my call they got my info and a was suppose to get a call back from them. Two hours passed and never got the call , called them back and I got asked if I can wait on the line. After 5 minutes they told me the same thing "sorry we are too busy right now can you call back in 30 minutes " called them back a third time after 30 minutes and the answer I got was this " sorry uhaul services are closed for today you can call tomorrow at 8:30 which I did and finally booked .the day of the pick up They gave me a truck with a dirty box which I returned clean . I returned the unit after hours so I did wait 2 days to get my receipt and when I did I noticed that I Got charge $15dls for fuel when I did returned At the same level I was told. Definely would not recommend this place and I'll recommend them to hired someone just to answer uhaul trucks because their priority it's the mechanical brake shop they have !

I appreciated the personnel at the rental agency. He was professional and patient with my drivers.



The agent there at break stop & repair/U-Haul Named Riad was excellent, came in there for my U-Haul reservation he has helped me through the process in every way he could nothing but the best service I've had in a while. I was in and out of there in less than 10 minutes, excellent work !

Jessica N. en


The agent was 40 minutes late to the job which made all customers wait until he decided to roll -in when he pleased. He was then short and rude. Then gone by the time we showed up to return the truck. Don't ever rent from this location. They don't care about their or your business

I want to rate excellent but when I was on location i had spoke with with the gentleman who assisted me and we asked that a different Credit Card be billed at the end and he said yes that would be fine, however he forgot and the original card was charged. When i called in he said it wouldnt be easy to reserves and instead of taking owner ship he told me how hard it would be to call his district Manager Ruben. And instead of calling him for me and getting it resolved he suggested I do it. I was completely disappointed in this experience. once he gave me the number which he had to do twice because i didnt have a pen he seemed annoyed, especially because i accidently his the number on my phone and under his breathe he said"what the f***?)I apologized. I hope that not everyone receives this kind of service after the fact.

Great Service, Attendant very help full, Fast Service,



I am a constant customer of U Haul at the Brake Stop.Excellent service.

Madeline A. en


After the whole mix up in the morning I was surprised to get two calls asking to return the van quickly for other customers. Maybe first please the first customer before anything else. Once at the drop off there was no one there and it was only a open lot by a repair shop. Not very inviting or helpful.

ADAM W. en


I can't comment on the people at the location or how the experience would have differed had they been open. However, the text msg with drop-off instructions did not indicate that this was a non-Uhaul branded drop site and that it would be closed at 5pm. It was difficult to spot and the Uhaul rep (after-hours answering service) told me that I could not do after-hours drop at that location when I arrived and called to confirm the location was correct. A lenghthy back-and-forth and finally a chat with scheduling confirmed that I indeed could leave the truck there - after suggesting first that I drive it (after having just filled the fuel tank) to another city to drop there. And, the shop had very limited space to park the truck/trailer.

Fast, check in and out

Had an appointment and had already filled out information for a speedy transaction, the shop only has one person that deals with U-Haul. That person was 20 mins late and the other employee was rude. I was paying 2 people to sit around and wait. Disappointing!

ERIC B. en


Numerous problems w/ rental including the fact that I was told they were closed when I arrived at 3:30 to pick up my reserved trailer (posted hours say they're open until 5). I called UHaul customer service seven days ago and am still awaiting a return call from your representative. VERY POOR SERVICE from start to finish.

Clearly UHaul is a side business at this location. I arrived on time but the uhaul agent was late and no one from the brake side was willing to assist but was actually quite rude. I had a reservation number but the truck I reserved was not there and I was given a van instead and urged to return no later than 4. When I returned at 4 the uhaul agent was not even there. Not a great experience.

Anthony S. en


The man who helped me with this rental was very professional and very courteous. I will continue to use UHaul from now on knowing that there are helpful people like the one who helped me out. Thank you again.



when I reserve a truck and trailer. I get there and they don't have the trailer'i have to pick up a trailer 15 miles away at another uhaul. truck doasnt have hitch ball so I have to rent one.also charged double the mileage because I had to drive extra to return trailer at other location.

The UHaul truck I rented is kept at a local establishment (Brake Stop). While I rented the truck and was satisfied with the quality and condition of the vehicle, I will likely use this location as a secondary or last resort option because of the Brake Stop manager who coordinates with the UHaul truck owner. I just bit my tongue because I wanted to get through the rental, but the Brake Shop guy was disrespectful and treated the whole rental as if it was just an inconvenience for me to be there. I suspect that the Brake Shop has little or nothing to gain from UHaul rentals. Regardless, customers should be treated with respect if the UHaul vehicle is going to be rented from this location.

The staff at this location were all very friendly, cordial and polite. My concerns are more with their procedures. From the customer perspective this location is far more interested in their repair service customers than they are with their U-Haul customers. I arrived and they acknowledged my reservation. They said they had to call someone to complete the transaction which seemed strange. They placed two phone calls to repair service customers before making the call to (what turned out to be) remotely located other location for this company. Once the call was made to this location the person who needed to talk to me was not available so I was told a call would be coming. All this with no explanation of what was going on and why there was the delay and why the transaction wasn't happening directly at this location. 35 minutes later the call finally came in from the remote location. The person again was very polite and apologized for the delay. But again gave no explanation acting like this was their standard operating procedure. Frustrated at this point I asked what was going on. He responded with, "oh, our U-Haul guy at your location is sick." This of course was clearly a cover answer for what is their standard procedures (only one person at the repair shop that could transact the U-Haul rental?). He proceeded to ask questions that were already answered on the online application. For instance asking me to select the drop off location when I'd already established that. He then also said he'd throw in an extra bag of moving blankets no charge for my wait but then I was charged for them on the invoice. Once finished this remotely located person scanned and faxed the contract to the location I was located at. So I was handed a 8.5" x 11" piece of paper with very faded printing and the process created very small text as the document was shrunk down. No official U-Haul contract and no U-Haul cover envelope for the contract as I've always received in the past. So, over an hour later I'm finally hooked up and ready to go. Hopefully you can understand my frustration. Please also understand I rarely to almost never respond to surveys but I felt compelled to do it this time. Regards, Rich Dunn

The customer service at this location was HORRIBLE. I showed up on time to my appointment and the U-Haul rep wasn't even there to check me in. After 35 minutes of waiting, another employee at this location called into U-Haul to put me in touch with a rep to sign me in over the phone. The representative on the phone was very rude, condescending, and made me feel like he was doing me a favor by checking me in to rent the truck. Although the equipment was nice, I will think twice before booking U-Haul for any of my other hauling needs in the future.



Apparently, I got there before the U Haul people did. When I pulled into Brake Stop and Auto Repair, the mechanic? said "YOU CAN'T PARK THERE" very rudely. I was stopping to ask where to park. Wasn't even out of my vehicle. Then another impatient guy walked up and told me where to park. I don't know if these guys are associated with U Haul but they reflect very negatively on the U Haul brand. Etiquette training is suggested. All my past experiences with U Haul have been above average or excellent. Severely disappointed.

Have an employee who shows up on time, cleans the truck, attaches the auto transport correctly, cleans the windshield and gives some instructions like which side the gas cap is on and doesn't think all women are incapable of driving a truck pulling an auto are incapable of driving it from Oceanside to Phoenix, AZ.

I completed a drop off when the location was closed. The key and contract box was clearly marked. I called to check in and the person verified all was well. Good overall, assuming nothing comes up in the next few days. I did appreciate the ability to drop off after hours since I had an early train Monday morning that wouldn't have allowed me to complete the return in person.

Absolute WORST customer Service I have ever encountered! Zero information at pick up. I knew more about the operation than the person who worked there appeared to know. On return, Joesph was the rudest person I have come across yet!
