Great staff! It's always a pleasure to work with this team!

The equipment was faulty. The parking brake was broken and the truck rolled Down a hill unattended. If not for the speedy action of one of my labor chasing after the truck, climbing through the window and applying the brake property would have been demolished and likely someone would have been hurt. Time to RETIRE that truck from the fleet.

My only complaint was that the van smelled like cigarette smoke.

I had not reserved a vehicle and was told that everything was reserved or out, I wanted a van or p/u truck. Anyway, the person in charge then took a look at his computer and said, oh, we do have a van. So I rented the van, picked up my outdoor dining set from Sears-drove home, drove back to U-haul and turned it in. Everything worked perfectly and I do thank the counter person for having a look at his computer to make this happen. Thanks. I always rent from U-Haul at this same location. Mrs. Howe

I wanted to rent a 24 foot truck and the only one they had was broken and had not been repaired in months. None were available. More 20 foot trucks. I wanted one sooner and could not reserve it.

It is kind of difficult to see the cashiers with the racks of stuff in front of each register station. The staff and equipment were 10 out of 10.

The foot truck I rented didn't break down (however I only drove it for 40 miles!) Gas gage probably worked, but the "out of gas" light on the dash was lit. When I released the emergency brake the entire instrument panel (plastic) fell off! The outside of the truck had numerous body damage, too much to document prior to my renting the truck. This truck is what I would (if a car) I would call "a beater."

Service and vehicle great. Too bad , but it is always a surprise when the rental rate is 19.95 and the total invoice is 53.75 at the end of the rental. Oh well.

While I was waiting in a truck I was dropping off, my wife was standing in front of, and to the side of the truck. At that moment, one of this dealer's employees, driving another UHaul truck, approached my truck from the rear, very fast, then whipped around my stopped truck to the right and zoomed past me, missing my wife by just inches. When I confronted him later and told him that he almost killed my wife, he said, without even looking at me, "Uh, sorry" and continued walking away, again not even looking at me. Would you also like to hear about the filthly, smelly (reeking of cigarette smoke in the cab) pickup truck whose air conditioning cut out for several hours on the 5 freeway in the hot afternoon sun? And the 1-800 UHaul customer service who told me that my options were to drive a hundred miles out of my way to have the repairs done? And miss my return trip by a day or more?

They did every thing RIGHT! Excellent sevice all the way ~~ Especially the man who checked me in on Saturday. I wish I would have gotten his name? He went way beyond his duty to help me. And now that I remember also the man who checked me out on Friday gave excellent sevice as well.

The customer service was actually excellent. Quick, efficient, friendly. -So very rare these days. I wish I'd gotten the gals name so I could tell you now. She deserves a raise.

Drew (?) if that's his name - - is a very hard working professional person. He seems very overworked. I never got the van checked in and still haven't received a receipt. Your process seems very slow and beauracratic. Doesn't ever seem to be enough employees. I hope you send me my receipt soon.
