Customer Reviews



Have some way to check in when you drop off equipment or send you a notice telling you that they checked in the equipment that you returned when they where closed

Sandra D. on


Location has limited hours We did not get a lock to lock up the dolly in the truck when we dropped the truck off after hours and they were aware we would be dropping off after hours Personnel did not do a walk around of the truck with us, we had to check everything ourselves It was unclear how to read the gas gauge

Steve B. on


Was expecting the charge to be $113.96. Actual charge is over $28. higher. Not sure why this cost more than I thought when I picked it up. Please explain. SB

Paul K. on


you know that better than i

steve l. on


Have the vehicle in the location on the day you promised. Day late at different location, not good.

Nathan E. on


Both locations were fine, I was forced to pay over twice the original cost because of unavailability. I was called after I had already confirmed my reservation that the equipment was unavailable and forced to pay more for the same services. If I can avoid it I will never use Uhaul again.



Out in the sticks. Bad roads. Not convenient

Site is very crowded and entry on the main Street which is the address is impossible when towing. Owner very nice and helpful!

Thomas B. on


Walt is a great guy to work with. Patient and clear.

John s. on


Great easy drop off. Took about 5 minutes!

Kyli R. on


I had no problem with the location, actually the owner saved my day by showing up early in the am. What I had a terrible problem with.... is the website and mobile service to pick up/drop off truck, even though I made a reservation, it was not working at the time of pick up and the 24 service phone number was not answering after many calls. I would expect more from this service at least to just work. Maybe there are some bugs to be worked out.

Luis O. on


Find a better representative. Location is only open on Sundays for 30 minutes and desk guy is extremely rude. When I called to reserve the trailer i was told since the location was only opened for 30 minutes on Sunday i could return anytime during the day and just found out i was charged for another day. Will look elsewhere next time if i don't get a credit back.

Don P. on


I returned a trailer earlier this year (Jan/Feb). Return location was changed from Petaluma to Santa Rosa by U-Haul. I was told I was to receive a $30 credit for the change. Credit never received. Thank you.

Aaron R. on


Walt’s is THE BEST we’ve even rented from, and we have rented so many uhaul these past three years. They are the friendliest, nicest people ever. I will only rent from them here in Petaluma.

Brett W. on


Called on a Monday and heard "Walt's automotive" and hung up thinking I had the wrong number. Checked google and it said closed, that point I assumed it had gone under with a new tenant. But, another call to corporate and got to the bottom of it.

John G. on


Hours posted said location was open until 3, I arrived sometime between 1 and 2 and nobody was there. I ended up leaving the trailer along with my contract since it was a self serve, but had no way to confirm that the trailer was received. Either change the posted hours or stay open until you say you're open. Also, some detailed instructions on how to return the trailer as self serve would have been helpful. I had no idea that I was supposed to log in and check in with my location until I had already dropped it off.

Ed W. on


Walt was very professional

Thomas C. on


Walt, the man that runs this U-Haul pick up location was very friendly and helpful. Easy pick up and drop off and the trailer we rented was just the ticket. Thanks Walt’s Automotive in Petaluma!

Timothy B. on


You people should have run anything

Dominic B. on


Terrific level of attention to detail, truck was spotless and ran extremely well!!

Jeffrey R. on


crappy smoke smell in the cabin of the vehicle

Robert Q. on


I had reservations to get a truck in Santa Rosa at 9 AM . Without telling me, and with no explanation, it was was changed to 2 PM in Petaluma. Then it was changed again to 2:30 PM in West Petaluma. My move wasn't finished until 1 AM. If you can't honor a reservation, what good are you? Who did you give my reservation to that was more important than me? I would appreciate a reply.

I booked a week in advance and my same town and I only ended up going to pick up and the shark was not returned they did not check to see that the person had to return the truck before me in advance. I was sent all the way to Petaluma in a whole different town almost close to the coast and I had to drive back to my hometown there for putting miles and more gas that I had to put into the tank for something that was not my fault I am very disappointed and I would not recommend Uhaul to anybody nor would I use it again I would love a follow-up call in regards to the situation because I do believe I should be comped for at least some of this mileage and the last minute stress of this whole situation was outrageous. My phone number is 707 590 1019 and my email Regards, Kayla kotch
