My comments do not directly concern these two locations, but the location on White Oaks Road in Campbell Ca 95008. Three weeks prior to scheduled pick up of U Haul truck I received confirmation notice regarding 20 foot truck. that was less than 1/4 mile from my office.. The day before my scheduled pick I was called by regional office that informed me no 20' one way trucks were aviable I had to go to Fremont some 25 miles away to pick up 15' van then drive to second locatLion to pick up trailer. This was extremely poor customer service and left me no choice but to proceed. Fortunately I had experience with truck/trailer combination in the past. I do expect some kind of reimbursement for the shabby trearment. Pat lafferty 408 377 7997

Online reservation experience is terrible. No disclosure about limitations on weekend rentals being limited to 24 hours. This is not specific to the Thornton location, but the U-Haul experience in general. Local staff (Jerry) was excellent, but online/telephone call center personnel were not.

They have always take great care of me. Jerry the manager knows that I have to travel far and he always make sure that I get the truck with s working cigaret charger and plenty of fuel. This is the only place I will rent my Uhaul! Great staff and all very nice. Thank you for doing such good job and I know I can always count on them.

I ask for a receipt and U-Haul person said "if you want" one go ask the front desk.

Overall, the experience was good. It was easy to rent the truck online and I liked how you provide an estimated cost of the rental. The only issue was that I rented moving blankets, went home, and noticed it was not included in the truck. I ended up driving back to the location to pick up the blankets.

We visited the site several times due to moving needs and were always treated with respect and understanding. Very helpful crew. This was a long haul and I really would have appreciated a vehicle with cruise control.

I had an awful experience trying to get a U-Haul. I asked a representative in the Sunnyvale location whether or not the Sunnyvale location had a 15' on-site for a one-way trip from SV to SF. I was told yes, and he took my information. I was then called by dispatch, and told to go to Fremont. I would have been fine if I hadn't been misled on the phone, since I could plan around that. I have a low-end electric car, so a surprise trip to Fremont to pick up a U-Haul is not conducive to moving. Overall, the portion of my move that involved use of the truck, and the in-store employees was great. Everything that happened on the phone was an awful experience, and it seemed like the representative on the phone was too concerned with making the sale rather than customer care.

Provide a rental in the location customer asked for. If not, take in consideration the extra miles the customer has to go out of his/her way.

the line was far too long in the morning for truck pick up. There were 2 people serving customers and 8 customers ahead of me. Took quite a while

I Have never been so mad when dealing with a person providing a "service". I Rented a truck online and purchased the standard renters insurance. When we arrived we were helped right away as no one else was there. We went through the swiping of my card and such. The guy never performed the standard "walk around" of the vehicle with me. There was no other customer there to assist so it wasn't like he was busy. When I returned the truck about 4 hours later I heard him yelling at the gentleman who was checking the truck back in about damage. He said I had damaged the truck while I had it. I know I had not done anything to the truck. I told him it must have been like that when I rented it. He says he is looking through video of the truck driving by but not parked and says he doesn't see it. I had purchased the insurance so it was not something I was worried about when it comes to cost but it was the principle of the issue. I do not damage property and if I did have an accident I would admit it. While he is out going over the truck again I ask the gentleman behind the desk if their policy is to walk around every rental with the customer prior to it being released. He said it was. When the guy who rented it to me returned I asked him the same question. His response was I do not see the damage on the tape. I asked him 5 times and then said I was going to call another Uhaul and ask them. As I was walking out to make the call he claimed that when a customer purchases the rental insurance they do not perform a walk around of the vehicle with the customer. WHAT????? So how do you know if it was damaged prior to me renting it or if it was damaged while I had it? I asked him again.. What is your policy and he again said it is not their policy to perform a walk around when a customer purchases the renters insurance. Not wanting to throw the other service rep under the bus I tell him I know he is not correct. He tells me he is not trying to "be a dick" but he thinks I damaged the vehicle. I told him I am not trying to "be a dick" and I think if you would have done your job job from the start of the transaction and we would not be in this situation. After it all he tells me my total and as I am walking out he tells me I am no longer allowed to rent from Uhaul again. I tell him do not worry I have no intentions to ever rent from them again. As I am walking to my vehicle I notice the keys are sitting in the truck with the engine on and no one from the company outside. I removed the keys took them back in the shop and place them on the counter. Didn't want them to claim the truck was stolen prior to me returning it.

The milage rate was too expensive. The truck was only $19.95 per day but I ended up paying $76.47

The manager [Brennen] was unfriendly, rude and nasty. He was so nasty that my son and I want to contact his supervisor but the woman who was working with him (and I wish I had her name with me) was nothing short of outstanding and I should be commended for a job well done.
