The only minor snafu came upon the truck return. When i pulled up, there was a sign that read "stay with your equipment and a representative will be with you". Well, Iwaited for 10 minutes and saw 2 other people show up and walk right in and return their equipment. Maybe I am a sucker,but I follow directions. It wasted my time. Once I went in, the staff was great. Now I know to ignore signs.

I booked a trailer online to tow a 2010 Yaris with a 2000 4-Runner and filled in all the applicable information online when booking my rental. I received a confirmation the day before that my trailer would be ready for pick up at noon. I had requested a morning pick up so I called the facility and they confirmed the trailer would be ready for pick up at 7 AM. When I arrived the associate said he couldn't rent me the trailer because of the towing capacity of the 4 runner was not adequate. He was unhelpful and borderline rude in his attitude about the experience. I've never been more frustrated and ended up renting a tow dolly which required significant more effort to tow the car safely as one of the front axles on the car was damaged which is why I needed the whole trailer. They did not even offer me the $50 credit because the trailer I ordered was not available/rentable. Totally unacceptable.

I recently rented a truck from the San Rafael Uhaul location off of East Francisco Blvd. This place has always had a bad wrap from the poor conditions of the vehicles and numerous loitering day laborers running up to your window when not welcomed. Anyways, I always like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but when they wanted to rent me a truck with less than a quarter tank I was surprised. I mean, that makes it quite obvious that someone failed to take notice and drive it a whole block to the filling station and top it off?! When I mentioned Id rather not have to get gas before and then end up paying for more than I used and trying to figure out without knowing what the truck gets per gallon, I just asked for another one...they had none. In a FULL parking lot, they claimed to have none. So they offered the next size up. A waste and more than I needed, but in the end I accepted it. After spending 30 min setting that up with some 22 year old who would rather be elsewhere and looked a little "influenced" and sidetracked to me, I set out to the vehicle where I was told in a mumble, "Someone will meet you out there". I walked out and noticed a significant amount of scratches and dents to the truck that were NOT stickered. after 5 min I walked in and retrieve someone. After the walkthrough , I thanked him and headed out. Where upon starting it up I noticed he had written the mileage wrong and called back to notify them of that and there were NO zip ties on the pads or dolly. I wouldn't have cared so much, but I didn't need to get charged and additional $17 for not using them. I called in and was taken care of by a very nice woman who assure me she had documented it and I was off. The rest of the rental was just fine and returned with no problems. I ONLY write this because I know of many people who would love to work here and treat you with proper service that comes with having the position. I would have rather rented from the Uhaul in Tamalpais Valley/Mill Valley, but it would have been more in mileage. They have wonderful service over there. Thanks for hearing my 2 cents, and they're not bad guys, just lazy.

Both guys who checked me in and out were professional, thorough, and so nice! I LOVE U-haul! I'd love to negate the bad review the Burbank/North Hollywood locations have gotten. Armando at Burbank location was lovely!

Give the customer better allowed mileage. The trip down to the drop off location was more mileage than was allowed. When i called about this issue i was given attitude by the male employee who said they just give you from the middle of town to the middle of town. He then told me that i must have take the wrong route to go over the allowed mileage. Wrong route?!?! I took what GPS said was the fastest route and that was 126 miles not 120. Also, if there is a certain route the customers need to take then U-Haul needs to inform the customers of this. The attitude and the negative and condescending comments that this employee gave me over the phone were unnecessary and inappropriate. Granted this was an employee who worked at a phone location who was supposed to assist with additional mileage. The pick up location was slightly better than the phone service i received. Also, the gas in the truck was a quarter tank less than what was on the receipt from renting the truck. I told the guy this when we both looked over the rental truck and he initialed the actual gas amount. This is just a little concerning that that much gas was logged when it was returned and a quarter of a tank was already gone when the next renter got it. What does this location do with the rental trucks on their lot? There is a lot of driving going on for that much gas to be missing after it was logged when it was returned by the previous renter.

When I dropped of the vehicle one of the employees was playing loud music on his phone form his shirt pocket that was making it difficult for me to communicate with him. I Love music but this was just not the time/place to do that.

The only thing you could do is to provide instant service to customers when they walk in instead of having to wait in line. That's obviously unrealistic... Good place to do business.

Maybe to have a 2nd person working the front desk; other than the wait, it was great!

The truck's bumper was severely damaged and was hanging from the vehicle close to the wheels and road. Made the driver nervous that it was going to fall off.
