It took an hour to get through the line to pick up the item I reserved online. I thought that was unacceptable. There was only one person a the counter checking everyone in, and selling equipment. On a high volume weekend day, there should be more staff onsite

need to work on customer service. Employees do not give full attention to one customer at a time. Too much multi tasking.

Had a reservation for a Uhaul AT in Napa, CA and when I went to pick it up, they had rented it to someone else, even though it was reserved for me and they knew it. WT...? How does that happen? Unhappy is not the word... After speaking with Uhaul on the phone, they found a trailer but I had to travel 40 miles to retrieve it. This San Rafael Uhaul dealer has a nice yard, excellent customer service, they hooked me up. Having to drive an extra 80 miles sucked but things eventually worked out.

Very long line when I arrived and only one person checking people in. Waited in line for 20 minutes. Paid for a dolly and when I got to my destination it was not in the van. Had to return to pick it up. Other than that store associates were very helpful and friendly.

The cost seemed exorbitant to drop off the vehicle trailer at my destination city 40 miles away - something like 3x as much.

I had an odd situation where I rented a truck for a quick trip on Easter. Oops, the dump was closed, and San Rafael Uhaul could not have been more accomodating. I had originaly rented a trailer, then decided a truck was a better option. It all worked great. Monica there was professional and friendly and checked me back in today quickly with an iphone!

I called ahead because I was going to be 30 minutes late compared to what time I rented the 10 foot truck three days before. The woman on the phone said that they would not give me any grace period and would charge me another full day if I returned it half an hour late. When I arrived, a young man who had helped me check out also help me check back in and he was friendly and helpful and reasonable. Great customer serviceby him, not her. Too bad because I am usually very pro females... Thanks

I was misquoted the price for the installation of my hitch - although I requested to rent a trailer at the exact same time that I ordered the hitch install, I was not quoted the wiring labor and the cost AFTER installation ended up being over $200 more than my original quote. Additionally, I was quoted a price for a 5X8 trailer when I asked for a 4X8 trailer. I noticed the charge and asked for the less expensive 4X8, my charge was cancelled and my credit card denied after we attempted to recharge me for the 4X8. I encountered overpricing and delays, putting stress into the start of my move. It was not a great experience.

Your employee, Jonathan O'Connor, is exceptional. I have used this particular U-Haul branch quite a bit, and Jonathan has assisted me many times. He is unfailingly courteous, helpful, kind, and he always goes above & beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. He is a great asset to your company. Thank you, Sandra Sked

I have a truck booked that I booked over 3 weeks ago. I got a voicemail today that you want me to pick up a truck from more then 30 miles away in downtown San Francisco.. I have paid a lot of money to have movers come help us move my mom who is elderly. You can't just call people the day before and change the pick-up location like that.. So disapointed and will be sure to write a review on my experience here..

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.
