The Good

  • Average Prices
  • 24 hour Gate Access
  • Climate Control Available

Average Prices

U-Haul offers storage units at affordable prices. For example, a 10x10 ground level drive-up storage unit is going to cost roughly $90 per month (this can vary slightly depending on location). These prices are low compared to the rest of the storage unit industry. Most U-Haul locations offer its customers with the first-month storage for free, coupled with one-way equipment rentals. No deposit is required, and all payments are made online. Other than the standard dry and clean storage units, additional features that can be purchased includes climate control.

24-Hour Gate Access

While standard front-office hours do exist (for example, from 7am to 7pm - depending on location) U-Haul storage units are available for user access 24/7, including weekends and holidays. Locks are also available for purchase, along with other moving supplies including boxes, tape, and padding. Another benefit of going with U-Haul is your direct access to a wide variety of moving trucks and other equipment.

Climate Control Available

U-Haul provides customers with the option to store their belongings in climate controlled units. This is a valuable amenity, especially for customers who are concerned with leaving their belongings in a unit exposed to extreme changes in temperature or humidity.

The Bad

  • Only 5 Unit Size Options Available
  • Level of Security Depends on Location
  • No Unit Upkeep
  • Reimbursement Undisclosed

Only Five Unit Size Options Available

U-Haul only offers 5 unit sizes. This is a relatively average amount compared to other competing storage unit companies. The sizes and their descriptions are as follows:
  • 5' x 5' Storage Unit: Designed for those using a trailer (example trailer size 4' x 8') or those looking to store seasonal items.
  • 5' x 10' Storage Unit: Designed for those using a 10' moving truck and are looking to store roughly 1 bedrooms worth of items.
  • 10' x 10' Storage Unit: Designed for roughly 2 bedrooms worth of space, taking up roughly a 17' moving truck.
  • 10' x 15' Storage Unit: Designed for those using a 20' moving truck and roughly 3 bedrooms worth of items.
  • 10' x 20' Storage Unit: Designed for those using a 26' moving truck and up to 4 bedrooms worth of items.

Level of Security Depends on Location

The level of security offered can vary depending on location. Most units typically offer both electronic gates and individually alarmed rooms. Comparing to other competing storage unit companies who may offer video surveillance, individual door alarms, security patrol, etc. this can be less than is desired. Before choosing a storage unit from U-Haul, it would be best to confirm with a representative of the location you're researching to confirm what security options are available.

No Unit Upkeep

Depending on your location, unit upkeep can be a factor. This can vary based on a number of factors, including the age of the unit, the climate the unit is in, etc. While online pictures are a good starting point to seeing what a storage unit has to offer as far as upkeep is concerned, it's strongly recommended to see a storage unit in-person before making any financial commitments.

Reimbursement Undisclosed

Unfortunately, we were unable to confirm any details surrounding potential reimbursement plans.

The Bottom Line

U-Haul is a well-known brand that specializes in providing moving and storage resources across the country. Its storage units are well priced, payments are accepted online, and they offer 24-hour gate access. U-Haul provides solid storage units due primarily to its affordable pricing and easy access throughout the United States.

Rented a u haul trailer to move my son. The tire fell off when going down the road. Lol. The customer service was great. And we will use them again. I mean, when you have to move your kids all the time…u haul is convenient and inexpensive.

Uhaul is everyone's go-to and for good reason. They were easy to contact and set up storage with. They just had a lack of space available since it's so busy in my college town, besides that I was very satisfied with my services.

Uhaul is pretty nice, it's a big brand company, so at least they're established. Or not. My Uhaul unit CLOSED without any notice, I was scrambling to find a place to store all of my furniture, in the end I had to put it in a friend's basement until I could find a new place. Not cool Uhaul, couldn't've even sent an email?

U-Haul storage units are spacious and great for the price you pay. It's nice to feel like your things are secure when you leave them some place else, and U-Haul delivers that peace of mind.

When we moved, we had one week inbetween when we had to be out of one house before we could move into the next house. We used U-haul for both our moving vehicle and the storage unit. We rented for a full month when we only needed one week. Our belongings were safe and secure until the day we were able to move in.

After my first year of college I needed a place to store my belonging while I was gone for the summer. I got a small compartment with U-haul and had no issues. All my stuff was in the same place and the unit was pretty clean when I rented it.

It’s is so expensive to rent a U-Haul. Moved from Lubbock to Houston and it cost us almost $2,000 for two days. I am amazed at how much the prices keep going up.

We needed short term storage (2 months) after a recent move. We were very satisfied with the value and customer service offered by U-Haul. They had convenient locations in our city and good options of storage units that were perfect for our needs. We also rented a truck and trailer from them and were happy with the whole experience.

I've been storing with U-haul/Your Extra Attic for 5 years. The managers are very polite and easy to talk to. Someone is always there if you have a problem. The rates are reasonable, and they give incentives for referring customers. The one in East Cobb County, Marietta, Ga is the best!

Our family has moved several times over the last few years and U-Haul is the first company we will call for our moving needs! They always have the truck size we need and the pick-up and drop off process is always convenient and hassle free! We have found it hard to find a company that competes with this service!

I was going through a divorce and needed a place to store my stuff while I made arrangements to get into a new place. Very accommodating and had more than enough space. I like their set also, felt very secure in leaving all of my belongings in their facility. Also they have the size truck I reserved so they upgraded me to the size up at no extra cost.

This company is just ehhh. The customer service was ridiculous. They tried to charge me a cleaning fee because there was a little dirt from a move. I laughed and asked for a broom and saved myself money by sweeping it out myself. It took over an hour to take off the cleaning fee from my ticket because I did it myself.

Everytime I move, I rent a U-Haul to make it all in one trip. It saves me a ton of time and effort. I wish there were more size option available because my truck is either way too big or not big enough.

We helped my sister move home this Summer. We knew to go straight to U-Haul to get a U-Box t to get her stuff home to Utah. The rates were reasonable and it's so helpful to be able to pick how many U-Box's we needed to fit all of her belongings to store in UT till she had a move in date.

U-Haul’s marketing team is genius, no matter where you go, you are a moving advertisement for the brand. I’ve used uhaul to move across country, the prices were very fair. In addition I’ve also stored my furniture in Uhaul storage units which were clean and cheap.

U-Haul does more than rent trucks!!! Their storage units are wonderful and easy to access at any time. I'm glad I decided to store all of my holiday decorations there since I don't have an attic at my house. Easy to switch out bins every few months.

My husband and I had to rent a storage unit for a while when we were in college. I'm not sure how we had that much stuff. It was probably more of a lack of space in our apartment at the time, but that's not really the point. I liked how U-Haul had a lot of different unit sizes so we didn't have to rent more space than we needed. This made it very affordable for us poor newlyweds. If I had to use a storage rental facility again in the future I would definitely check out U-Haul again.

I have used U-Haul Storage Units as part of a move. I have had to store things for a short period of time and U-Haul Storage Units have all sizes and I can get them as long as I need to and I have access all the time. They are protected from everything and it worked out for me. I thought they were very economical as well.

We rented a storage unit through U-Haul because we trusted the name. We have not been disappointed. It is very clean and easy to contact customer service which was very important to us. They spray for bugs as well so there are no surprises when we get out our Christmas decorations every year.

U-haul is great one stop shopping for moving and storage. Units in my area are competitively priced and I've been able to get a truck or trailer to move stuff from across the states or down the street. Units are clean and well maintained and there is always a security system in place.

This company is great. Whats not to like about a simple business model with a variety of trucks for your moving needs. I have used this service a countless number of times and never had any issues. They also offer a wide array of storage options that wont break the bank. Use Uhaul if you're looking for a good storage service at a reasonable cost.

My family and I were moving across the country and needed a place to leave our furniture until our home was ready to move in. It was nice to have a "one stop shop' where we could rent the truck, and then have a storage unit all with the same company. They made the move a lot easier.

We have had a good experience through uhaul. The reservation was easy to make. When we went to pick up the truck it was ready to go and there were no issues with the rental. When we have used it to store our belongings between moving it has worked very well. The unit was clean and kept our things in good condition.
