I have given U-Haul of San Rafael high ratings because this was at least my third time renting from them in the past three or four years and it has gone relatively smooth each time, but particularly this time with your computerized appt. and early check-in! The mileage was a little hard to gauge, probably because I do not use GPS, did not consult a map, and made a guess, but it did not cost me very much more for the mileage. All nice young people working their Dec. 21!

Deliver vehicles in the city in which you promise them. I was promised a truck and auto transport in San Francisco but had to drive all the way to San Rafael because that promise was not kept. I was also promised a $50 reduction in the fees as a result of this inconvenience which also was not respected. That just sucked.

Having to leave the dolly and pads in the truck to take up space is false advertising. They take up so much room and space you're not really getting as much space as advertised. This is a very shady tactic and a reason I will consider other options to rent my truck next time. Uhaul should really change this policy and allow the dolly and pads to be left at the uhaul location if requested by the customer. This is ridiculous

The trailer electrical went out once the trailer got wet. It shorted out the instrument lights and the taillights in my vehicle by blowing the fuses. The trailer lights also did not work. Went through a ton of fuses trying to identify the problem and ended up driving in the dark without lights. Wasted half the weekend either stranded, going to the parts store for fuses, or waiting for friends to give me a hand. Only before returning the trailer did I realize it was the trailer's electrical causing the problems - each time I hooked it up and it started rolling/moving it would short out and fry my fuses. Looking underneath the rear of the trailer there was a bunch of soaking wet electrical tape spliced wires for the rear license plate lights. Horrible experience - I called your 1800 number and they never called back. Hope you fix it before renting it to someone else.

Yes, I had figured the load very carefully and used the dimensions supplied by U Haul on line for the size of the inside of the truck. The numbers are not accurate. There is a little space where the rear door hangs down precluding a full box from being stored consistent with the dimensions published by you. I have to make another trip to get the remainder of what I was supposed to pick up.

I dropped off my trailer mid morning, but it wasn't checked in until mid afternoon, coincidentally about thirty minutes after it was due back. It was raining and I didn't need a receipt so when the uhaul rep said I was through, I left. They charged me for an extra day, I guess they thought I wouldn't notice.

The corporation, not the local representative, could not keep my order straight. The number of email, text messages and phone calls I received about the wrong place to deliver the truck, the wrong day to return it and the overall confusion about my order was truly unbelievable. The icing on the cake was getting an email with extra day and mileage charges after being told there would be no more charges. I will seriously think twice about renting from UHall again.

4pin adapter from last rental a few years ago was burned out and replaced free of charge, even with the attendent and myself being injured in the process of removing burned out adapter, very friendly and helpful

I have reported my incident through both the Haul Facebook and Twitter accounts to report how disgustingly filthy my rental truck was. I am waiting for a response to a credit. I have rented six trucks in two years from this location and in ever case, the trucks cargo holds are filthy with disgusting and vile sticky substances that get all over my cargo. Haul rides my ass to insure that my truck rental is returned in perfectly clean condition and somehow I always get trucks that looks like that have been soaked with medical waste and gobs of seminal fluid. For shame Uhaul!

Your policy is misleading and charges far more than suggested. Your staff is rude. I had a negative experience with your company.

Cody and Anselmo were great! I have rented far too many moving trucks and this was my best experience by far. Cody and Anselmo were both very nice and friendly and went out of their way to help. They made it a very good experience. They were so nice and good at their job. These guys are really great.

The customer service rep. I had did not know anything about the insurance you provide. It would be helpful if he had some knowledge of the policies.

Our reservation truck was not available. Manager was able to provide a smaller truck at a lower mileage rate to cover additional load-up required by smaller truck. Somewhat satisfactory but did increase our gas and labor costs. Isn't there a $50 credit for a blown reservation?
