Testimonials from recent customers of U-Haul Store of Milpitas
It was ready on time, they gave me call in the morning as reminder
I reserved online, which was great. I did have to wait a bit for the customer in front of me to make up his mind, but when my turn came it went quickly. I highly recommend using their online option for quick, hassle-free service.
the staff was very helpful when I needed to exchange the truck I had rented for a larger one just before closing time.
John and Peter were great in advising what was wrong with the auto transport. Stayed late to help me check in my truck that I forgot to fill up before coming back.
Mr. Daniels at the service counter was great. He was thorough and explained the whole rental agreement. Nice guy!
Good experience overall,nice job
friendly staff. quick to get you in and out. polite and answered all questions professionally and courteous..
I was charged a lot of money extra with no explanation,when I wanted to talk with the manager they said he's not there when he was actually there. soon as I step out from the place they charge me the full amount like they promised they not going to do.the girl that was there absolutely lied in my face by promising that the manager will call me to resolve the issue of the payments which never happened. do not go into this place whatsoever...
This is my first time to use it but I had a very good experience.
Wonderful people. Were willing to help get our car off of the trailer and understood our needs. Very welcoming and prompt in helping us.
I was fully satisfied with the graciousness of the staff, cleanliness of the van and your assistance....despite odds! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
manager of store had my car towed from the customer parking in error. I want reimbursement of $725.00 plus cab fare $20.
This location was great including the owner Dave! He was awesome !
I was misled by rep and felt that I was overbilled in the end due to that error.
All that I interacted with at this location were, helpful, friendly, and efficient. Very pleased with my experience.
My rental was almost a year ago. I am just now receiving this survey as well as an electronic receipt. Also, they called me months after to see if I had returned the equipment I rented (I had returned it the same day). It seems like there is a 6-12 month delay in your communications.
Explain the headlights at night settings.
Would be nice if there wasn't a charge for mileage. If customer brings back vehicle within 4- hour time frame. Like Home Depot and Lowes.....
Due to having a reservation the process picking up my rental and dropping off was very quick. I was in and out both times. Staff very friendly and were able to answer all questions I had. Thank you.
The best uhaul in ca. I travel 100miles to rent units because of the great service.
This location was very busy the day of my pickup. The lady attendant was very short in her instructions to me and was hard to understand because of the office noise. We did no walkaround of the truck before I left inspecting for previous damage. No instructions were given for operation of the slide ramp (which was simplistic). She walked me to the truck and then disappered, leaving me to wonder if it was ok for me to drive off. I would rate her as poor on customer concern and tell my friends to avoid her if they need to rent a truck from that location. DEFINITE improvement is needed.
Friendly Staff, explained everything in detail.
The guys were awesome! Very thorough and take great care of your belongings!
Fast friendly service A+++
The manager, an older gentleman, wasn't friendly at all. He seemed irritated and unhappy. I wouldn't rent here unless I absolutely had to.
It was fast and people were so friendly. Thank you guys...
Excellent service because Thomas asked his boss to allow me to use the Uhaul 2" ball hitch because mine was too large without charging me an extra fee. He simply held on to my hitch while I use the uhaul hitch and we simply exchange them upon return. This type of customer focus is valued and will generate customer loyalty versus being nickled and dime to death.
Close at 8pm. I seen a guy/lost customer struggle to get a 5x 8 because he got there to at 750pm. And have more inventory. Because there was no 5x8. He was told to call the 1800 number. Lost a customer going from this location to Dallas Texas.
Overall experience was as expected, you are renting a truck after all... the service tech was friendly and got us through the rental process quick enough. Time spent was no more than 20 minutes. I used to drive a truck for a furniture store, so I can say that the truck was in great shape considering its purpose. No complaints from me. U-haul got it done!
There needs to be a bell to call the attendant.
Every thing is excellent! I will rent from this place again in the near future!
The only thing that could be improved is that the cigarette lighter sockets should work so that your customers can keep their phones charged.
Otherwise - good rates, good equipment and excellent, friendly service.
When people make reservations 10 days ahead of picking up a vehicle, you should have the vehicle at the location they requested. 10 days is plenty of time to make that happen, well unless its Uhaul. I will not use you or your services again as I was told oh well or get a cab by your people when I explained I had no way of getting to the new location. You guys aren't the only show in town!!
The mileage total billed was a little off from actual. 1/10 mile at start and 1/10 mile at return. 20% of the per mile rate is not worth the effort of correcting. Started with 1/4 tank of gas.... Rental should start with half tank minimum to avoid two stops.
The agent was extremely professional and helpful.
had a headlight out
The appliance dolly I have rented should have been tied in the truck. It was moving around in the back and making noise when I was driving.
The service was great! The store is a bit small so there was a long line and a bit of a wait. Maybe adding another sales person at the desk would help. Thanks!
The employees did an outstanding job of making the pick-up and drop-off quick and easy. Very, very efficient operation. Everyone I talked to there was very courteous, professional and friendly.
I'll be BACK!
No complaints, appreciated the bright lighting at night while dropping off after hours
Initially I wanted to rent a pick-up. Since it rained earlier, the back was wet. I switched to a van instead. The representative whose name was Sal, I was told, wanted to rent me a van that had a muddy exterior AND interior. I brought it to his attention. He said he'd clean it. I asked 'including the exterior?' he did not give a straight answer but I understood the answer is no, since, per his response 'how is the exterior going to affect you'. I asked why he couldn't just rent me a van. He dodged my question insisting the finish cleaning up the dirty van to then rent it out to me. A lady whose name escapes me then switched me to an already clean van.
I could not fathom why 'Sal' insisted on having me wait while he cleans a dirty van when there were a handful of already cleaned and shiny vans in the parking lot.
This is still one of the best truck rental places I've used. I always reserve, and the truck is always there. The trucks are sometimes a little battered (no problem there, since these vehicles get heavily used), but always clean and mechanically in good shape. AC and radio worked fine too :). I highly recommend this location.
Great customer service. Would definitely recommend.
I don't remember the gentleman's name who helped me and explained everything to me, but he was amazing and way overqualified for the job he was doing. He provided great service and was very informative. I think he was hispanic, with a goatee. Anyway, give that guy a raise!!
It would be great to get a confirmation email to be able to confirm that the equipment that we dropped off after hours was checked in. Thanks :D
Van was dirty and smelly.
Customer parking is limited.
Don't remember the guys first name. His last name was Lopez. Very courteous and got me in and out quickly. Explained all my charges and what they were from. Well done sir!
The service when I rented the appllance dolly was good. The agent helped me load the heavy dolly into my car, which wasn't a simple procedure.
However, when I returned the dolly today, I arrived at the dealership about 20 minutes before it was open. The door was open, but the clerk refused to accept my return until 9:00am. He locked the door and told me to wait.
Then I waited at the sign that said "Equipment Return Wait Here" Some time after 9:00am, I noticed that the clerk was waiting on customers who came into the office after I arrived. Becoming tired of waiting for the clerk to come out to the sign where I was told to wait, I went into the office, where I was about 5th in line. After waiting in line for about 5-10 minutes, I notice another clerk was checking in customers behind me in the return lane. I went out and spoke to her, and she eventually processed my return.
I asked why she waited on customers behind me in line, and she said she thought I was "just hanging out"
I ended up waiting for about 45 minute to return the dolly that I had rented. Neither clerk seemed concerned about the inconvenience I had experienced.
I think the dealership needs to have better policies or training in place.
1. If a clerk leaves the door to the office open, and a customer walks in before the official opening time, he should wait on the customer (my opinion)
2.If there is a sign telling customers with returns to wait, a clerk should go to them, rather than waiting for them to come into the office.
The whole process was confusing and irritating. I will try to find another dealership next time. Perhaps you can suggest one to me, or tell me if the dealership I went to will make any changes.
Have parking for truck renters
The trailer that I had rented was dirty from previous renter, But it was a well maintained trailer with new and properly operating lights and tires much better than other local equipment rental places!
Great service, friendly staff.
He helped me with parking, but there is no parking available with the location.
Fast crew,specially PETE.in and out in 15min.thanks....
cancelled the reservation without notifying customer in any way
At first I tried to book a 24 feet truck online, but your website said this location didn't have such. Although I eventually got what I wanted from this site after a phone calls, I would prefer your system had it right at the beginning. By the way, the customer service on the phone was excellent too. Thanks.
Do not know the staff is fast to help clear in what U Hall can provide the cost OK Equipment is great Keep up the good effort
Tony and staff are well trained and friendly...i surely would go back to this site in the future...
I love reserving my truck directly they reserve my truck and have it ready when I arrive. It's important to my business that U-haul have my truck reserved and ready. That staff is excellent they remind me to buy supplies, bubble wrap and boxes so I don't run out and have to stop elsewhere. Excellent!
Overall great. The only concern was that the gas in the U-Haul dropped from 1/4 tank to Empty when the vehicle was idling before I left (the contract stated I was getting it and needed to return it at 1/4 tank). The technician was very helpful. He filled the tank back to the contracted amount for me before I left.
The truck didn't have any gas in it when I picked it up and I wasn't able to make it to a gas station. I had to walk back to Uhaul to have them take me to a gas station. Not a pleasant experience.
Missmanagemnt dropoff location was not what I wanted, due.to which I got late and was charged 138$
This site is excellent. Enjoy the folks who work there. Email receipts are ecologically sound.
Checkout computer was not functioning and a long line developed. Trailer was old, tires at the end of their tread, and missing a jack in the front.
Your Roadside Assistance did NOT assist me. A complete explanation has been sent in to corporate. In fact, your RA is borderline fraudulent and totally misrepresented. Your employees are doing what they are told but RA, itself, failed.
The person who help us when we returned the van was great.
The guy working there was awesome! Great customer service! We will be back :)
The key was tricky to turn.
My experience with U-Haul was horrible. I would not recommend booking online nor would I recommend U-Haul to anyone.
Great service. One thing that could make it even better is providing USB power for charging phones.
David & Sal are great guys. I rent vehicles 5 times a year for 3-4 days each time & I'm dedicated to only renting from them. Great crew.
Inform customers of after hours drop off.
Shout out to Paulina for being a great customer service rep. :)
The fuel reading was off. The contract said 1/4 tank, but when I got in the truck it was between 1/8 and 1/4. It didn't seem like a big deal to me, but when I went to refill the tank, that extra 1/8 cost a lot of extra money. Try to be more accurate on the fuel reading. Better yet, give the truck with a full tank. That way the customer just has to give a full tank back. No fussing with 1/8 and 1/4 increments.
Great service. More staff would help with handling all customers in a timely manner.
The staff was very helpful. The reservation by the main group was incorrect for my pickup in Fremont. The Milpitas location worked well with me for a satisfactory solution. It's not what I wanted but they made a good compromise since they knew how my reservation was messed up. I really appreciate their help.
Counter help was very courteous and helpful
Thank you to Dave and Shawn
The San Jose location is not secured. The manager threaten to ship after just a day of loading but the location is not secured.
Mr. Dave helped me .. went out of his way to teach me connect and disconnect the tow hitch from the trailer.. even accompanied my to my apartment and showed me how to use the equipment.
Everything went smoothly with the exception of the drop off. The employees could not give me a receipt which both wasted time and made me nervous about leaving my belongings with them.
No calls for delivery info. Told it would be there between 12-2pm. Showed at 3 without the 2 dozen blankets that I ordered. The brackets had been ripped off so there was no way to lock it. Big hassle!
