I cannot say enough bad things about the Felton location I had reserved the trailer from. The auto-transport was not there when I arrived. The counter person was rude and dismissive when I mentioned that I had a reservation and that I had expected the trailer to be there. I would give their customer service an F. The Ocean street office was great.

Nothing, seemed decent. Maybe a nicer waiting area.

I was particularly impressed with the young man who helped me on Sunday, August 23rd., he was very helpful and courteous.

I had ordered moving blankets and a furniture dolly with my online reservation. Neither of these items were available when I picked up my van. This was a great inconvenience for me. Why can I select those items online if they are first-come first-serve? That does not make sense. Get rid of those items online or make sure they are available. I will not be recommending U-Haul. I will choose one of your competitors next time.

The lady who helped me at Doc Auto on Ocean St in Santa Cruz today was very, very, very kind and helpful and efficient (I can't remember her name). She even wiped the truck down for me because she felt it was left too dusty for me. She was so nice and made everything easy for me. I really want to be sure she is recognized for that. :)

Customer service was kind and helpful when I needed to change my drop off location. There were no additional charges and the new location was easy to find.

I was extremely happy with the 15' truck I rented. I took a load of personal belongings to Oregon for an 850 mile round trip. The truck was almost new and was really comfortable to sit in for that long drive. It handled driving over Highway 17 in the Santa Cruz Mountains and through the Northern California Mountains around Shasta equally well. If I had one complaint, it would be that the truck didn't have cruise control. (Or I couldn't find it.) I will definitely rent from U-Haul again in a couple weeks when I plan to take another load to Oregon. The folks at Doc Auto were fast and thorough. I'm a happy customer. Thanks, Mark Santa Cruz, CA

We were naive. We actually thought the 19.95 would be close to the cost. We drove 25 miles to pick up a load of household items to take to flea market after a recent move. The 1.39 per mile added another 34.75 to the charges with taxes and fees bringing the total to $60.59. I'm not saying that U-Haul did anything wrong. I just wished we'd checked out other truck rentals first. It might have been the same, but we seem to have spent $60 to make about $100. On the other hand we got rid of a lot of things we no longer need! But next time we'll check around more or use Craig's list. That said the service person at the office was most accomodating and helpful and the truck was clean and ready to go. There was some miscommunication from the person at the phone center about when the truck would be available and could be returned and we had to scramble a bit to meet those deadlines.

The only complaint I have is the attendant did not tell me the trailer had to be turned in at the same time as I picked it up. So I was charged for a whole additional day. Needless to say I was not happy.

Train your personnel in basic manners. A few minutes of instruction on the truck would be valuable. And GET TRUCKS WITH CRUISE CONTROL! No excuse not to have them on the 10 footers.

It would be nice if the trucks come full so all you have to do is fill it back up instead of figure out how much gas you used!!

The furniture pads that I had reserved were unavailable at Doc Auto. The young man who assisted me (worked at the counter) tried to call other U-Haul locations, but was unsuccessful finding pads. I appreciate the effort that he made and would like to acknowledge his strong customer service skills. He made the difference in the quality of my rental experience.

We were given the wrong vehicle contract and instructions and incurred additional fees due to the misinformation. Vehicle was clean enough for our needs with some minor dirt but apparently that is not adequate for return.

Especially good check-in experience. Lights on the trailer weren't working. Gentleman helped me figure out that the problem was really the connection on my truck. Also, the small bump to the fender (I didn't take out the insurance) was handled quickly and professionaly--and I was treated with respect.
