the staff was very helpful in me choosing the right sized rental. even with a reservation (made in person a few days before) the wait to check in and receive the keys was over 20". the truck smelled of cigarette smoke as someone had used the dash as a tray. also difficult to drive, the gas pedal super sensitive. returning the vehicle was easy except they waived me into a line 8 ppl long just to check out. then he said if I had an email address on file I could drop the paperwork and go. so I did.

Professional, prompt service

When customers reserve a vehicle online, and they arrive to pick it up, but it is not available, it would be professional to mention the problem with an apology. Instead, I was given keys to a much larger truck than ordered. I was also charged extra for their mistake, which they did not mention until I returned the truck. The truck was in poor condition and had a flat tire. Basically, I had decided from a previous move, never to rent a uHaul again, but for this 1 item move, I really didn't think it could be that bad. I was absolutely wrong. I wasted so much money and time today. Do not make the same mistake as me. Find any other truck company.

The Uhaul ended up costing a lot more than I was expecting to pay because I was told that I couldn't return the truck to a different location which didn't really make sense to me. The employees also messed up the time that I was supposed to return the truck.

I had a last second need and no appointment. Just rushed to UHAUL and got in line. Start to finish, meaning I am leaving the parking lot, 20 mins!!!!! Excellent service and cooperation from the UHAUL personnel.

Reserved online for expedited pickup. Pickup still took over 30 minutes. First truck they gave us had a dead battery. Second had NO fuel. Also the outgoing mileage was incorrect, so that when we returned 4 hours later, they said we had driven almost 700 miles (not even possible). This resulted in a long wait in line to talk to a manager and a truck return which took just under one hour.

Make sure that the trailer lights are connected, and don't charge for more expensive items than were purchased (cardboard packing boxes). Except for this the rating would have been excellent. Oh, and rent a truck that has a full tank of fuel.

Maybe it was lunch time but I was left hanging out in the yard then had to find someone. Otherwise everyone was nice and helpful. The location was not easy for me to get to and out from. Again just for me.

First off the location I originally selected was different and I went there and they said it had been changed to a different location, but I didn't receive a call of email notification letting me know this. Second of all My reservation was for 3:15 and when I got there they said my vehicle wouldn't be ready until 4 because the system was changed, once again I didn't get any prior notifications about this. Then the person who returned the vehicle didn't fill it up to 5/8 like they were supposed to but I was already so late for where I needed to go because of the time they made me wait that I didn't think to go back in and tell them that it wasn't at the right gas level so then I was charged for not only my gas but the other persons as well.

I left some binoculars in the truck I rented...made several calls to the location...and no one ever got back to me as promised. I wonder how one of you would have felt after several attempts to retrieve something you had left behind. I really try give people the benefit of the doubt...but in this case there is no reason why I shouldn't have received a phone call back over a period of 2 days after I had made the initial report. It leaves room for me to believe that you have some dishonest people in your employ. I felt after no return phone calls to 510.532-1221 it was useless to try and recover my lost item...and I probably would have received the virtual song and dance about the item not being there. The bottom line here is poor customer service and a high level of unprofessionalism at this site.

Customer service was great and the truck was clean but in bad shape. The brakes whined whenever you engaged them and the power steering went out when ever the truck was at a stop. This meant that trying to maneuver and back up the truck took two people trying to turn the steering wheel. The staff was great but when I told them about it they said they already knew. Overall a good experience and I appreciate the availability.

Got in and out...no chit chat w/customers. They could add a little "how are you today, talk about whatever and the truck/van youre renting (none of that happened) as it helps with the overall experience. I did a local move, got lost and the cost per mile was no joke but learning the city (even though I had a map) could be costly. I would recommend location.

Weird homeless camp across the road could be improved. Staff at the location was very helpful!

Making a reservation over the phone was great. Very good customer service. Picking up the truck was not so good. Took a very long time. Took 20 minutes for the guy to walk out of the office and bring the truck out to us. The people at this UHAUL don't seem to know what they are doing very well and are extremely slow. The entire pick up from walking into the office to leaving with the truck took 40 minutes. I believe, but I'm not certain, that our guy who picked up the truck entered his license number the night before.

I reserved a pickup and auto transport 5 days ahead. The trailer wasn't there when I arrived and they sent me to another location across town to pick it up with the rental truck (then a separate contract and more paperwork). This made me late to an appointment and added to the gas/millage I had to pay. I was asked to then deliver the trailer and truck to the corresponding offices. No discount and wasted time. Frustrating. "Guaranteed Reservations" yeah right. I'll like rent with another company next time.

Best uhaul in oakland

Elizabeth M. on 9/3/2014

Please advertise your truck sizes based on the FLOOR size and not the roof size. Your 20' truck is not even 20' and our furniture would not fit (not at roof with cab extension 19'-7"!) nor at smaller (17') floor size. This matters for moving large things! This location has some great employees. But the intersection it is located at is hard to turn in/out of with larger trucks. Driveway on one entry side has steep drop to actual road & cars bottom out.

There was only one person at the register to assis with truck rentals. After 30 mins I finally got helped and I asked the guy for a dolly and he charged me $10.00 for it and it wasn't even in the truck which I didn't realize it until I got home ! Some of the representatives on the phone were really rude when I called back to explain about the missing dolly and said " well this happens all the time" if you are a new customer and never rented an u-haul truck how would I know all of their purchase process !!!'

Nothing like having your whole house packed and having U-Haul call you at 9 in the morning on the day you're supposed to move to tell you that there is no truck for you, even though you reserved it two weeks earlier AND the sign at the location says: "Guaranteed Reservation"! We managed to get a truck that was smaller than the one we reserved, which made our move much more arduous and complicated than it needed to be. A very frustrating experience.

I wouldn't recommend U-Haul overall to a friend. it has nothing to do with the service from the locations, but U-Hauls overall service. I made reservations for a 26 but ended up with a 17. Yes you called 430pm the day before I was to pick up the truck and were closing in 30 minutes while I tried to figure out what to do. Eventully the person over the phone gave me additional miles, but what you guys weren't understanding is I had no one to load the truck the second time except myself and my 7 year old son. the purpose of the big truck was for me to get everything on it and make one trip while I had help. Your webpage says that if the facility does not have the truck you reserve then you would get a $50 credit. Well I guess I did not read the fine print because the person calling to tell me that there was no 26 truck said no that only applies if I went to the facility and there was no truck. Why do you take reservations if your are not going to honor them.

Waited nearly 45 minutes to get my rental. Slow counter service and there seemed to be confusion about where trucks and keys were.

The location was fine and easy to get to. The problem was the waiting. There were only 4 people in front of me and I waited 25 minutes to get the truck. There were two people working and they seemed like they really didn't care about their jobs too much. The woman who helped me was very nice but SLOW and so was the other guy that was helping customers. People who are usually renting your trucks are moving and just want to get it over with. Maybe you should train your employees to offer better customer service by being speedy. The guy who checked in the truck was super helpful and quick. Loved his efficiency. Teach your employees how to be more efficient. Like the girl who took my money also went and got the truck while there were other people waiting in line!
