The truck that I reserved was not available. I was able to rent the next size down van but would have liked to have the 10' truck that I was guaranteed. The location stated that the 10' truck they had reserved for me had become inoperable earlier that day.

The Uhaul staffer working this location on Fri Jan 15 and Sat Jan 16 was nice, efficient in processing my rental, and, as seemingly the only person working at this location, made it feel really COVID safe. Full mask wearing (nose and mouth) and had the door propped open for air flow.

Staff was friendly, fast and helpful. I was a little anxious about reserving online without speaking to a human, but when I showed up to pick up the van on 1/14/2021, everything went super smoothly and the person helping me was great. Excellent job!

We hired the Moving help through Uhaul's website and the Movers cancelled the job and making the rental useless. Never again using a Uhaul or the movers through you for help.

My experience at my pickup point was outstanding. The manager was incredibly helpful. I had a hitch added to my car but I didn't know about the electrical component. He gave me great advice on another location to find help. Mind you this was on the eve of Christmas Eve. because of this individual everything worked out I was able to get electrical from another location which was equally as helpful and timely. And I was able to travel to my destination without any problem at all and I curried excellent service.

They never return calls!! I tried to reserve a truck through this location in July but my reservation was never confirmed by them. I left 5 phone messages but never got a return call. I finally went to Doherty's truck rentals company for my round trip rental. Its ok to drop off a truck at the Berkeley location but I would never rent from them.

Overall, the location was great. I did have a problem that placing a deposit and having to put down more money than what was mentioned was frustrating. Should really consider mentioning on your website that there will be a security deposit and/or a minimum amount for a $100 to put down. You guys are sneaky..

We loved the gentleman who helped us in the office. We did not get his name but we wanted to commend him on his customer service. We had one problem with the truck: the door latch got stuck open. We almost called roadside assistance, but with the effort of three men, we were able to get it unstuck.

Uhaul needs a serious overhaul or their reservation system. I called the main hotline to reserve a large trailer at a specific location. I called back a different number(reservation manager in the area) to confirm reservation and add an extra day but was told that that trailer does not exist no matter what changes I made. This is the second time they have done this. Was told that my reservation was a preferred location, not guaranteed. What kind of bullshit is this type of reservation. Last time I actually showed up there wasn't one available the next day. This i called to be told there is one available AGAIN! Had to go through entire process again and finally had no choice but to get a smaller trailer because largers ones only exist at least 20 miles away. So reserved for two days for a 1pm pick up. BUT when I picked up trailer, I was told that trailer had to be returned by 10am two days later BECAUSE there was a reservation at that time. How does that make sense when I paid for 48 hours?! Couple hours after taking the trailer, I checked my digital contract in email only to discover a discrepancy in my contract. The contract shows I was charged for 2 days, pick up at 1pm and return NEXT day by 7pm! That's 19 hours NOT 48hours!!! I called back this location to discuss error and was then told to return the day after by 9:30am this time! Was told that since someone reserved a trailer I had to return by this time eventhough I paid for 48 hours, so this means I had to return the trailer 3.5 hrs earlier. So my reservation went from a return time of 1pm, to 10am, and now to 9:30am but a 48 hour rental. I did not want Uhaul to screw me over any further so I returned the trailer next day at 9:30pm. YES PM! 12 hrs early. So one last screw was when returned the trailer to the lot. It was pitch black. Not one single light was on! I literally unhitched my trailer with just my tail lights to see what I was doing. Uhaul needs a serious quality control in place and reservation system overhaul. Reservation should not be made during the time its still reserved under my time. If I have any other choice in the future, I would reserved some place before I get screwed. Extremely unprofessional practice by this company. This is not an isolated incident. This reservation Was originallly for Richmond, Ca which switched to Berkeley. The last reservation was in Reno, NV. Both incident resulted in no existence of equipment. I do not write review unless it was this extreme. Find an alternative or double confirm your reservation for guaranteed location of equipment and not PREFERRED location.

I'm a regular customer, because I can always rely on Gilman St. U-Haul to have the step van that I need. This time it was Travis you checked me in lickety-split. I'll be coming back.

I rented a uhaul van to move couches from my house in Berkeley to downtown Oakland. I picked up uhaul on Friday. It set in front of my house until Monday. I drove it to Oakland and back to uhaul place on monday. I was charged for driving 100 miles. The back was nasty and inside was dirty also. plus it was on 1/8 of a tank.

I know it is hard to keep inventory of vehicles current for each location. I was pleasantly pleased to find the 10 ft truck I wanted and that I could easily change my reservation from a 15 ft truck. I found my move was delayed and with one phone call I found I could do an after hour drop off

Over years, I have rented several times at this location and received “top-notched” service. At your Gilman Street location, I give high marks to the counter serviceman that has been there for each of my rentals to move my son from community college to university to graduate school. Thank you!

We drove the truck 14 miles. We did not have time to stop and put gas in the truck. We were charged $18 for gas when we dropped off. Does this mean that gas is $18/gallon? Or how much gas could we have possibly used for that 14 mile drive?
