I can't think of any necessary improvements. Customer service was excellent! The truck that I reserved was clean and ready when I picked it up. And when I returned, Adrian (sp?), just checked me out using his cell phone. Even though it was after closing, he happily stayed a few minutes late to make sure I was satisfied with my experience and get me an emailed receipt. So happy that I'll be writing another recommendation on Yelp.

I checked in online but there was only one person at the store to help customers. I stood in line for at least 30 minutes. 3 customers ahead of me, another 3 or 4 after me. The employee was good but overwhelmed. Some customers started to grumble but he kept his cool. It was a hot day and no air conditioning in the office. Once helped I quickly got my truck as reserved. Other than the long wait it was a good experience. Don't know if I will return to this location because of the waiting time though.

I was in line for about 2 hours with only one person working and one other person grabbing the vehicles. My pick up time for my reservation was at 9:00am so I arrived at 8:45. I wasn't helped until 10:30 and forced to shift my whole moving scheduled around which limited my window of moving all of my belongings. This was a horrible experience would not recommend this location to anyone.

Have two people during the busy hours, especially when first opening on weekends.

The wait time was an hour and a half- There were only two people on. The woman at the main desk was fabulous but should not have to be working alone. When I finally got the truck it was in the poorest condition I have ever driven a vehicle- Although I was only going 20 miles I was not sure it would last the trip. This U-haul site needs to get it together. I will tell everyone I know to avoid this one like the plague.

Waiting in line over an hour! Just one new person at the desk to take care of everything! Over an hour in line!

There was only one employee and about 7 people in line so I had about a 40-minute wait for service.

I stood in line for 45 min, with only 4 customers in front of me, in order to pick up my rental. There was only 1 staff member checking people in on a Saturday morning.

The Guy that checked me in for the dolly has a very disconcerting way about him and poor customer service. Said a few times I had the wrong ball size and was trying to see me another one. He was wrong and it fit fine..I don’t do that for a living but I could see it was the same.. I dropped the Tow dolly about 4 hours later with a female that assisted me and told me to just drop the tow dolly and that’s it…Days later I got an email from late_equipment@uhaul.com on the 28th that the tow dolly had not been returned. Called immediately to customer service who was going to get back to me and I never heard back. Days later I called again and it still shows out! The two times I called UHauls Customer service they tried to call or contact the El Camino Sunnyvale facility and still without confirmation or response to your traffic department. If this was my company I would clean house over there and hand people their last checks. Uhail has a reputation and this undermines it immensely. Their actions are Very Unprofessionally on the part of that service center.

We had a reservation for 10am to pick up our uhaul and I did express check-in online the night before giving all drivers and license information. When we got there about 15 parties of people were in front of us and only 1 person working behind the counter on a Saturday morning, which is a bit moving day of the week. He did announce that he was only taking people with reservations so about 5 parties left. Then we thought he would call out the next person by reservation time, but he didn't and we were in line for 1.5 hours and I had to text all my friends/family who were helping me move, yet half of them were coming from 30-60 minutes away so they were already at my place or almost there and just had to wait around together. Two other workers straggled in around 10:30am, but we still didn't get to the counter till 11:30am. When we finally got the counter it only took 5 minutes to check-in officially and get the keys to the car and we were out of there because of the express online check-in. I've moved quite a few times and this has NEVER taken this long, maybe the longest might have been 30 minutes. I thought this was totally ridiculous and my friend who was with me agreed that this location needed a MUCH better system for checking out your reserved truck!

Associate that "helped" us was not very attentive. Seemed to be rushing through the process and missed quite a few details. 1.) we had a reservation which included an auto transporter, he checked us out for the truck only and had to go back and add the auto transporter. 2.) he pulled up the truck, showed us the gas, miles, etc. Then was ready to send us on our way. I asked him "and the auto transporter?" He forgot about it AGAIN and proceeded to hitch it. 3.) we paid for blankets and a dolly, but didn't notice until we got to our moving locations that items were never loaded. Had to pay the movers we hired to use their dolly and blankets. Because I paid for those items in cash, I don't have a receipt and so Uhual will not reimburse me. So I'm out $60 because this guy forgot to load those items. VERY disappointed.

The manager, who attached the trailer, was very helpful/knowledgeable and likeable. The transaction with the cashier was fast and simple. However, the wait to be served was long.

The truck itself we rented was in poor condition, extremely shaky and jarring - but was able to get what was needed done for the day. Dante who was working at the front desk was fantastic!

On a busy holiday weekend with a lot of people moving there was only 1 person running the whole operation. The gentleman was very cordial working, but the wait to just get to the desk was 45 minutes.

1. There was no way for me to adjust side mirrors. Not sure, where the knobs were located. 2. The Cupertino location (where I had initially asked for reservation) said Sunnyvale would be able to move my 17ft vehicle to Cupertino location. When i called Sunnyvale location, they say they would not move it. Hence a bummer. 3. If a vehicle is available before the scheduled pick-up, alert should automatically to the person, so that they can pick early if possible. I was forced to keep calling every 30-min to check, if it is avbl or not. Crazy customer service. 4. Typically, when vehicle is handed over to customer, it is properly checked and the handed over. In this case, i was given a key and that's all. 5. Check-in and Check-out was very good and appreciated.

Your online reservation system committed the rental for two days, but then the email confirmation cut the rental period short by several hours. The store did what they could. Very unhappy with the online system.

Here's my contract/reservation # 97116789. I was supposed to pick up the truck at 10am on 9/26, but had to wait for half our to get it because there was only one person doing everything at the location, and he told me he wasn't from there and was called in. I paid for a bundle of 6 furniture pads, and when he pulled the truck in, I asked him if they were there, and he confirmed me they were in the back of the truck. I drove 30 minutes to pick up furniture and they weren't there. I called the local number right away and a lady noted on my reservation that we hadn't received the pads. When I returned the truck, I didn't wait in line, but returned the keys to a lady noting that I hadn't received my pads and that I shouldn't be charged. However, when I received the final invoice, they were charged! I called the local number which forwarded me to the reservation or dispute dept, and gave me the dispute number of #959630 and also mentioned that she wasn't sure if I was going to get reimbursed and you guys will make a decision about it. I do have to say I've used UHAUL several times for the past 15 years, and I've had the worst experience every time!! Thank God this was only $5 and not an exorbitant amount. It's about the principle and I feel like UHAUL company is cheap and cheat customers anytime they can, and doesn't have the necessary personnel to help with the customers. I am talking about this has happened to me in Illinois, Minnesota, and California now!! I expect a refund as soon as possible!

Extremely slow service, only one person working. Dante was the one person there, luckily he was great at multi-tasking. Dante deserves a raise!

When we got home with the truck we rented we opened the back and it smelled awful inside, like something had died. The manager in Sunnyvale was more than accommodating when we returned it, but I'm pretty surprised no one noticed this issue before renting out the truck.
