Jacob K. on


They charged me for gas when it was clearly at the right tank level. Next time, don't be shady.



The guy at Discount Auto @ 640 W MacArthur Blvd was great! Efficiently handled 3 customers while I was there and we all got out in good time.

Actually record correct mileage and fuel level, show customer the car contract, walk us through the expectations

I was doing an after hours drop-off. I found the gate closed, so I couldn't park in their lot. They had the key drop-box, and a sign suggesting I go to for after hours drop-offs, but the first instruction there was to park in the lot, which I couldn't do. After debating this for a while, somebody wandered by (Ivonne) who claimed to do security for the lot, though she was off duty, and informed us that we could just park on the street, in direct contravention of the supplied instructions. Which I did. The entire experience was stressful, confusing, and could easily have rectified with a simple posted sign.



very professional work .They are the best .Thank you

Called the location months in advance for Burning Man reservation - was very honest and up front about where I was going. I was assured it would be no problem. Called the location several days in advance of pickup to confirm my reservation, was again assured there would be no problem. Arrived to pick up van on scheduled date. Attendant (same person I had spoke with on phone twice before) looked at my contract and proceeded to make a phone call. He was speaking in another language, but I could make out the words "Burning Man". When he got off the phone, I asked if there was a problem. He said "Yes, you Burning Man people are taking all of my trucks. I cannot make money if you are taking all my trucks." It was useless to remind him that he had confirmed my reservation the previous day. He proceeded to berate me and to let me know he was not obliged to provide me a truck. I was very polite and patient, he finally let me know I could have the van. Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Will not go back, nor recommend to friends.

They are supposed to open at 8am. I was there at 7:50am for a rental truck reservation that was supposed to begin at 8am. The gate was locked and I stood on the street until 8:15am when someone finally came to open. I didn't leave with a truck until about 8:45am, and three people were serviced before me despite me being the first person there. The guy working there had poor communication skills and no apology for being late. I had movers scheduled to pack the truck, so I paid them 30min for doing nothing since U-Haul was late. I do not recommend this location, I would go to main site on International Blvd.

I came in a little grumpy for reasons unrelated and he was kind and courteous. The grounds looked great, car in perfect condition. Great product and amazing customer service.

The staff/owner is alwasy helpful

The app doesn’t work. We tried multiple times standing right in front of the machine. No one answered the 24/7 customer service phone number. After over 45 minutes, we gave up and had to come back the next morning when the site opened. Our trip was delayed 1 1/2 hours due to this issue.

During my rental today, Simon did not have furniture dollies in stock. He sent me to StorageMart @ 2743 San Pablo Ave, Oakland to get his friend to supply me with a set. He called ahead, and didn't get through, but told me to go anyways. While that was a nice gesture, the StorageMart opens between 9:30 and 10am, and my pickup was for 2 hours @ 8am. He didn't charge me for the dollies after the return, but it didn't seem very professional. I couldn't easily move my furniture without them and wasted some valuable time. Upon returning the 15' truck clean and refueled, Simon insisted the dial on the gas tank was below what he remembered. We had an argument over 1/16 of a tank that ended poorly. I felt like this was the typical gas scam, squeezing the customer for a few more dollars based on differing opinions about an imprecise fuel gauge. I feel really bad that he is either going to have to spend his time filling up the tank to his liking, or continue to pass the inflated dial mark onto the next customer. I did my best to match the dial as I received it and even called customer support to see if they would charge my card for a few extra gallons after I left, just in case I was mistaken. I was embarrassed to be placed in that position and very flustered. The whole experience has left me weary. I understand he is the only one working this lot and is stressed a bit with the lines and lack of resources and support. I wish him well, and hope the next customers are treated fairly.

Call when the location of the reservation changes. I was given a confirmation email of the reservation, but was not given a direct notification that the location had been changed.

Esther A. on


For some reason, google maps sent me to the wrong location. But figured it out. Thanks!

Mitchell C. on


Please confirm that enough equipment is available in advance of the pick up day/time.

Parker D. on


I had no issues with my rental and they were honest with the fuel and mileage charges. They were very busy the day that I rented my moving van but they were very quick and professional with their help.

The van we rented is new - so it was clean enough - but there was still food crumbs in the dashboard - the cab was not cleaned up very well - but overall this was a great place to rent from. We are happy!!
