Had to wait for the lunch break. The trailer had a padlock on it that needed to be cut off.

We reserved a truck in our home town. Instead we had to drive 45 minutes each way to pick the truck up in another town. Called and would not transfer the truck to our original location. Basically tough luck. Would not recommend or use U haul again. Terrible customer service

My reservation was from 8am-4pm. No one showed up until 8:45am for me to pick up. No one told me I had to refill the truck with gas. Because he was nearly an hour late, I missed some of my elevator time to move out. Then had to race back to deliver the truck by 4pm. I returned it on time and then this place calls me and tells me I should have gas in the truck. Charged me $42. I didn't have time! The guy didn't show up until 8:45! I had to call their answering service to travk him down to get him to come in. Shady operation and I am really frustrated they charged me for gas and would like a refund of the $42. And the truck only had 3/4 of tank of gas when I got in, he charges me for a full tank.

Tell a customer that the trailer they are picking up has broken lights or fix the trailer brake lights before giving to a customer! I called in to inquire if a 6' x 12' foot trailer was in inventory. Yes. So I drove an hour pickup the trailer before learning the right rear brake light didn't work!

Everyone was pleasant, but Victor was especially kind and considerate beyond expectation. Considering this Uhaul location is also a repair and tow truck center, all were not representative of public service skills, but Victor, as mentioned, was a pleasure to do business with. 5 stars for Victor.

It's at a busy intersection and once the office is closed it is difficult to know where to leave the truck.

Don't make me go 50 miles to pick up equipment I ordered 10 miles from my home. Not Calistoga's fault, it is Uhaul scheduling that is a pain...

John C.

Very friendly, accommodating, went to extra effort to let us know they were closing early so we didn't miss pick up.

After the run-around and inaccurate information given to me by the remote rental agent who would have sent me to Kelseyville for a truck that was already rented, the attitude might have been more, "Thank you for choosing us", instead of, "You're lucky to get a truck".

Tires were bald and trailer was unfit to drive. Dealer said he could do nothing for me, except cancel the contract. I took trailer to my home and called U-Haul roadside assistance, which took 5 hours to arrive. I have been a frequent U-Haul customer. I was headed to LA, 6 hours away, so there is nothing I could do but wait for the repair. This is the worst U-Haul experience I have ever had. I will look elsewhere next time.

I picked up the truck on a Sunday after pre-aranging to do so when the agent was closed. There was a mileage discrepancy and no one to talk to however the agent settled to my satisfaction.

Reserved a truck for self check in. The keys were not in the lock box and the shop was closed. I found the owner around back after 30 minutes of looking for keys. The owner of the shop told me he was closed and waved me off, I kept trying to get his attention, annoyed he finally came to the door. After I explained my situation he told me he didn't have any keys for me. Long story short he found the keys hanging on his key rack after 20 minutes of calling uhaul and him telling me he didn't have a truck or keys for me (the truck was out in the lot and already checked into me via online). I also had reserved 3 packs of moving blankets and of course those were not in the truck so even if I had gotten the key via self serve lock box like I was supposed to I still would have had to inquire the shop owner for blankets. Thank goodness he was there since his shop was closed (this was before business hours) as the point of the self check in is to get the truck early before some of the shops even open. This whole ordeal delayed me over an hour, the whole point of my self early check in was to get an early start.

we had reserved a U-Haul at another location, and U-Haul came and confiscated it even though it was reserved, so we had to drive to another location, Calistoga, to get a different truck which fortunately they had.

We were not quite satisfied with our experience. We reserved out truck for healdsburg, as we are moving from there to Santa rosa. Calistoga is completely out of the way. When I called today, I got told that I was notified of the change, so I shouldn't complain. Uhm.. well, I got notified on Friday early afternoon (the day before) at which point it was too late to cancel, as we had taken time out of our work schedules and had asked friends to take time our of their day/plans to help us move, so that we can be out of our place. A truck could have easily been transported to healdsburg or a convenient location along the healdsburg/santa rosa route. Also, we would've accepted a 15' truck instead of a 20'. When we returned the rental, there were atleast 10 trucks just sitting there. Just not a great experience, as we had to spend more money and time on this than it should've been at our preferred location. It's not like we have a shit ton of $$ lying around.

Charged me $30 for a cleaning charge even thought the Uhaul Center I picked it up from gave me a dirty truck. I was a General Manager with U-Haul of Southern Oregon. We never treated customers this way.

I truly enjoyed my experience with this U-Haul location. I've never been in and out of a rental location as quickly as I was able to do so here. They are conveniently located near a service station so you can refill the fuel if you need to. The staff was extremely friendly and easy to work with I truly recommend this location.

Provide rental agreements with accurate mileage and fuel levels so that you don't overcharge customers due to the incompetence of you employees.

The truck wouldnt shift into gear. We had to drive 20 miles per hour the entire trip. Then i was charged a 25.00 cleaning fee. The truck was cleaned and swept. There is no reason for the charge.

When returning the truck we were asked why the interior was so dirty, dusty. We had to laugh as it was the condition we had found the truck when we rented it 24 hrs earlier.

Make sure that requested equipment/supplies are on-site ... I'd asked for some blankets & a std. hand dolly --- neither of which were there at time of pickup. Not a problem caused by the local site .. seems like communication breakdown somewhere between web team & front lines.

The employee showed up ten minutes late, then couldn't get the computer system to work, which took another 20 minutes to resolve. Overall it was very unprofessional and dissatisfactory. I would try somewhere else if you have the opportunity.

The employees at both the pick up and drop off locations we courteous and did their jobs well. The experience with the reservation itself was a nightmare. Your corporate employees were not helpful and made the registration process lengthy and difficult. I made 4 calls ahead of the day, trying to determine if we could actually get the vehicle we wanted. Because of the holiday I was promised a confirmation call on the 24th. I never received any call. On the rental day, after an hour of red tape, my husband left to fill the tank.....the mileage was incorrect and he had to go back to th rental location. This was a terrible experience. We will never use your company again.

No one in your organization had any knowledge of the after hours procedures. If I didn't have a smart phone I would have been unable to complete the check-in process. No where was this made known to me until I arrived at my destination. There was inadequate parking available at the destination. I had to struggle to fit my large truck into a space that was not illegal to park. It would be a good idea to warn receiving sites of incoming traffic so they can assure adequate after hours parking space.

The express check-in is not smooth or obvious on how to use it.I had to keep the van for 1 more day and they made it happen, even though they had another person waiting.Thank You, Ray.I used Budget the week before in Napa.Uhaul is so much better.

I had reservation for 11 am and called to let them know I would be 15 minutes late. I could not reach anyone so I called a secondary number and was told they were out on a tow. Someone(tow driver finally arrived at 12:30 and I was one the road by 12:45, so 1 1/2 hours late.

24 hr drop off Possibly a sign for those that do on where you should leave your equipment rental as space is limited

We had a 15 foot truck reserved for 9am. It was not available when we arrived. Rented a 10 foot truck loaded it and they called at approximately 10am. to say the 15 foot truck arrived. I ended up paying for 2 trucks instead of 1. I should be receiving a refund from Uhaul!

You should have a correct current inventory online. I made a pick up reservation for 10', but they only had 15'. I don't believe it's a fair practice to charge me for a bigger truck I didn't need and didn't reserve. Guy at the counter refused to adjust the price.
