The gentleman that operates the Valero Gas Station was wonderful. Much better to rent from him personally than renting a cargo trailer online. I was very disappointed with trying to rent the 5x8 cargo trailer. Very frustrating to read “none available” and will you be willing to talk to a uhaul representative. I definitely would have gone to another company if you didn't have a monopoly.

The 15' truck we had reserved was not available. Luckily, they had a 17' truck. However the truck was in very poor condition, it even seemed like the transmission was about to go out. When we returned the truck, we refueled at the location. Yet we ended up getting a fuel charge of almost $50. We called the location and we we were offered a refund. Yet when the refund arrived, it was only a refund of $1.67. When trying to communicate this issue, the U-Haul employee (a middle aged man with an accent) was very angry and refused to help. I was able to resolve the issue by calling 1-800-GOUHAUL but it took over a month and 5 phone calls to get the refund. It was extremely frustrating and a huge waste of time. I will never rent from this U-Haul location again if I can help it.

I was charged twice for this rental. I was charged $114.67 on 10/29 at 5:14pm when renting the truck and then my card was debited again at return on 10/30 at 4:02pm for $105.46 even though I had returned the truck at 3pm and had to call the man who I returned the truck to and ask him why I hadn't received a receipt of return yet over an hour after I already had. I Still haven't received a refund of the first amount taken from my account

I was guaranteed a 17' truck, and there was not one available for 20 miles. I had to settle on a 15' truck and used furniture blankets during Covid. Unacceptable. The owner said it was because I didn't confirm. I was never told to confirm, AND I check in online the week before my pickup, so I don't know where the ball was dropped here. I will not be using this location again, and will look to other rental companies before looking at Uhaul again.

Truck was in great condition but back was not swept clean and cab had some dirt in it. But not bad, just not as clean as I would hope for during COVID.

The frustrating part was that I ended up going to 3 locations in order to find an appliance dolly that was actually at the 1st location but the employee didn't know. Thankfully the owner was able to find one, but I lost an hour in the process of running around. Seems they could do a better job in their inventory control. Appreciate you asking for the feedback.

This is the worst Uhaul location ever. The customer service was the worst, very rude and unprofessional. They were dirty and it looked like there was no sanitation being done. I would never recommend this location and I will never be back to rent from this place. Below all expectations for a uhaul rental place.

We were charged twice on our credit card, the amount from our original contract and again for a higher amount. The vehicle we requested wasn't available. First we were told to take a larger truck, then we were told to drive 45 miles to pick a truck up in 5 hours. Then a truck was dropped off and we got it. In all it took 1 1/2 hours and lots of frustration

Truck was filthy. Tire pressure was low and so we had to pull into a gas station and put air in the tires. The rental shop was filthy and unorganized. I could not believe that this was UHaul...I thought I was in the wrong place.

Renting from Valero Uhaul was a great experience. The location I was moving to had not yet moved out, so I needed to keep the truck an extra day. The UHaul personnel were VERY concerned that I did not return it on time, as other customers needed it. It showed me that they really care about their business and care for those renting. They let me know, in a courteous way, that they were very disappointed. My lesson is to rent for an extra day, so I do not impact others adversely.

Did not provide pigtail to hook up lights and did not tell us there were no lights. Did not strap wheels in correctly and one fell off while driving. Made me drive the car up on carrier and was yelling that I didn't do it fast enough. Moaned and groaned about every little thing and was constantly stopping to read texts on his phone. (Every other uhaul experience I had this trip was great! Renting the truck in Santa Cruz was wonderful. The Watsonville dealer that gave us a pigtail and hooked up the trailer lights after we discovered they were not working was great. The Kingman AZ dealer that unhooked the carrier was great. It was just the soquel dealer that was horrible)

For the booking process through the home office/website left much to be improved...Logistics center never called me back after 2 days and when they did they had no idea the the equipped I needed was located. after speaking to a bout three people a guy named Karl was helpful he said there was a truck and trailer in Montery CA. but he was still incorrect since equipment was available in Santa Cruz right down the street which was better for me.

Vehicle only had 3/8 of a tank of gas. Proprietor was efficient but unfriendly. When I returned vehicle, I turned in the keys to someone who did not check the truck for damage or verify the mileage and gas consumption. . I was told that a copy of contract would be emailed to me the following morning . I felt the service was below what I expected.

They did not have the blankets and sent me to another location that was 7 miles away even though there was another location 2 blocks away. They did not give me an address and I could not find the place, so I went back to the location that was 2 blocks away. Needless to say, I wasted a lot of time driving around when they should have had available the equipment that I had reserved. Also the truck was dirty and the windshield was bug splattered so I had to go clean it before leaving.

The truck was filthy! The back had to be swept three times! The cab was disgusting. When I returned it I mentioned on the Mobil return that it was not clean and got charged a cleaning fee! I had to clean the truck just to use it. I returned it cleaner than I received it. I did not make it dirty. I was just trying to key someone know. I have pics to show how I received it. I was also charged for a full extra day when I returned it. I ended up spending $360 for a one day rental. I did not know it would be this much. I was originally charged $180. I expected the gas charges and mileage but this was a lot. I will likely not use uhaul again.
