Rented 26' truck for move from CA to CO. After driving 30 miles to my home I checked the oil and found it almost empty. I added nearly 4 qts to bring it to the proper level. Had I not checked it the engine would surely have been ruined during the next 1600 miles causing Uhaul great expense and me great inconvenience. A front tire was grossly out of balance resulting in a very fatiguing and uncomfortable drive. The wheel was observed by a chase car to visibly bounce. Lastly, the drivers door seal was defective causing a lot of wind noise. I had to wear earplugs to reduce the fatigue. Other than that, all was well.

The communication with this location and the main rental location needs some improving, as we went to pick up the truck on my lunch our and when I got to the Santa Cruz location they were closed for lunch and I had to wait almost 45 mins to pick-up the truck and it seem the reservation line does not have that information that this location is closed from 12:00 to 1:00 pm for lunch.

It would have been helpful to know the drop off location instead of having to call customer service the day we arrive. Also we were told the location at 433 Ocean the drop off When we arrived we were told they had no space and we needed to go down the street The clerk said we had been notified of the change the day before ,but never received a call. The place down the street was closed and we were told to just drop it off When I aske d the clerk if he was going to check us in he said no just leave the trailer there and they will check it in the morning. I said you won't even acknowledge I dropped it off he said no he wasn't responsible for it . I called you C/S # they said they would make note we dropped it off. I thought that whole place was very unprofessional and unclean even the employees nothing like other Uhauls I have been to

I booked 30 days in advance, only to be notified 4 days before pickup the trailer was located 20 miles away (an 80+ round trip). The SCz location made it right but the telephone dispatcher was less than helpful.

all in all with the stress of the whole situation that led to the need for a rental truck and trailer, they made it easier.

We were called 20 minutes before our reservation to be told why we could no longer have our truck and that the only other availability was at 3pm in a smaller truck. We then were called hours later and told a different reason for our truck not being available. When we finally were contacted about a truck available at a different location for a different size, we showed up to find the office completely empty and waited for 5 minutes before someone even showed up. This is some of the worst service I've ever experienced and have lost all trust in U-haul.

Have someone on-site to collect the keys and do an inspection, and collect the dolly and blankets.

I had explained that I wanted a one day rental and understood I could return the car trailer after hours. Although I returned the trailer on the same day the trailer was accounted for on the next day and I received a bill for two days. The extra charge was taken off with no problem and I am very pleased with the condition of the trailer and the service I received. In the future maybe there is a way to document the return of equipment after hours? Thank You. Bruce Rhodes

arrived at 4:15 pm to drop off trailer and found the business closes at 4 pm mid-week. drop off point was difficult to park in and there was barely enough room to drop trailer. lack of attendant made this a bad experience.

This Uhaul location was very accommodating even after I held on to the truck longer than I should have. They worked with me to make sure that I was able to complete my move even when it lasted longer than it should have. Awesome and straightforward.

Double charged our credit card because the 1st truck had mechanical problems and had to give us a new one. Closed 1 contract, reopened another. Said they ran credit right away, but did not show up on credit card--made us go over our limit--had to get one a 3-way with my credit card company, Doc Auto, and myself to get it straightened out. NOT impressed with staff; had to call 3 times to get a REAL person on phone. Would NEVER use them again--would never give them another penny!!!!!

I had to wait and hour and 45 minutes for my truck to show up. Worst customer service ever. Also forgot to give me a dolly and blankets. AND they offered to give me another customers truck because mine was late! "It's out of my control" was the answer to every problem.
