Everything was ok but we had to wait almost 10 minutes for help and we were in the store alone for that time

Renting a van is absolute rip of. $19.99 per day is a joke and it should not be painted on the vehicles. Its more like $100 dollars a day. I will never rent a van again from uhal .

Our only complaint was the person who helped my son when he went to pick up the truck didn't seem to have all of the reservation info which had been made online.

Arnold A. on 1/7/2017

When we walked in to pick up our reservation, no one was in the store. No one. I and another customer stood there for 5 minutes waiting for someone to help us. Then I walked to the back of the building, where non-store employees seemed to be working. When I asked if someone could help us, they said "someone should be up there soon." Five minutes later still no one. Finally, Monica came in. She was not the manager and seemed to be tied up previously with another task and surprised no one was in the store to help anyone. Monica was very fast and helpful and the only reason I would recommend this place to someone else. She was great. Another reason for displeasure is when I called to confirm my reservation before coming in, a man - I think the manager - answered. I asked him if I could pick up sooner. Instead of him asking "What's your name? I'll check for you." he said: "Well I don't know who you are. What's your name." And then: "Well the truck is here, so you can come whenever." Not a good first impression.

The truck was on it's "last legs". The engine's valves were clattering, the oil pressure was over the top and the transmission acted as if was going to "blow" at any minute.

We had a horrible experience with U-Haul. The pick-up and drop-off locations and employees were just fine. It was the reservation experience that was awful. I reserved 2.5 weeks in advance a 26 foot truck and a car trailor. The day before I was notified that the truck and trailer were not available and that we would have to travel to Antioch to pick them up (which was not feasible for us). We then spent much time on phone calls discussing this and in the end (morning before move-out date) we were told a truck would be available for us along with the trailer after all, at our original pick up location. However, a few hours later Antioch called to confirm we were picking up a truck and trailer from them (NO we were not!). They had no record of the subsequent phone call with the truck/trailer in San Rafael, and once again there was none available. More phone calls. Within the course of one call: Nothing in San Rafael, something in Hayard, nothing in Hayward, Something in Oakland, nothing in Oakland, something in Santa Rosa, oh wait, a 20-footer in San Rafael but no trailer, but we could get a trailer in Vacaville. We accepted this solution and as it turned out had to leave a lot of furnishings behind as they would not fit in the smaller truck. We could not get to Vacaville in time to pick up the trailer. This was a nightmare experience and I will not use U-Haul again, at least for a long-distance move. I believe U-Haul owes us some compensation for all of this, other than the "we are sorry for your inconvenience". A move cannot be disrupted like this, especially long-distance, with house sales and deadlines involved. One day notification that what we reserved (and I even "express paid" for it in advance!) would not be available after reserving 2.5 weeks in advance is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
