I reserved a van. April 30th at 11:30 i came to the front desk to pick up my van. i was told the van had an electrical sensor problem and shouldn't be used. So they offered to put me in a 10 foot truck which I really didn't want since I had a small load and was driving to a congested area. I requested some type of "making good" to me for having to take the larger vehicle; eg reduced cost for insurance; the manager (man) came to desk and was not very service oriented and indicated "no, we can't provide reduced insurance". The gas level on the print out showed a quarter tank, however when I got in the truck as I drive off lot, I noticed the gas gauge was only 1///8th of a tank. I took a picture showing both the 1/8th tank and the stRting mileage. I phone the uhaul number on the contract and they indicated they'd make that notation in the record upon my return. Upon the return of the truck at approximately 6:00 pm, the man in the lot handling returned trucks had not received any communication regarding the initial gas level. He was also not at all service oriented, had me go back to the truck where I parked it to move it up after he finally moved his truck he was in up, and was not accepting of the fact that the truck I rented started with 1/8th of a tank. He questioned that, asked for my gas receipt and indicated I was good, regarding the gas usage. I see an additional $22.O0 on my electronic statement which I will inquire about after sending this feedback. I've used that San Rafael facility approximately 4 other times in past 7-8 years. Next time I need to rent a moving vehicle I'm going to call another option because of this last experience yesterday where I felt not regarded as a customer, not provided good service and lack of clarity regarding my final charges.

My original reservation was made online at the Novato location in Bel Marin Keys. It was switched to San Rafael (10 miles south) the morning of my reservation because my pickup was not available. How does this happen? Unacceptable. The additional round-trip miles cost me more than $20.

I rented a trailer with a roll type door. For was broken and very difficult to open. With that said. The two people that were working at this location one a young lady the other a young man were excellent. I would go back just because the service was so good.

The cargo van was clean and ready to go, except that the gas tank was almost empty. It would have been nice to start out with enough gas to get more than 40 miles.

Due to space limitations I feel the set up is sufficient and most importantly the check-in/return process is speedy and efficient. I appreciate that the counter associate is friendly and not grumpy. Thumbs up!

I didn't have to wait long for help despite there being customers ahead of me. The process was quick. My cargo van was outside ready just moments after signing my rental contract. It's obvious that Uhaul employees work as a team.

The cargo van ran fine with no problems. The U-Haul staff was polite and professional when I requested to keep the van an extra day.

This is the third time this year that I have rented trucks from U-Haul of San Rafael.Staff members Saul and Anselmo are top notch: super competent, efficient, courteous and creative problem-solvers.

The number of parking spots at the facility are about 5. There is no parking nearby, except for street parking. I Had to walk over a 1/2 mile to park my vehicle, after driving around for 20 minutes in search of parking.

The entire rental experience was greta especially the return. Monica (I hope I remembered her name.) was excellent! One major issue - The U-Haul sticker on the windshield should be removed. It is a safety hazard that blocks visibility especially for tall drivers.
