Great customer service, new truck, quick turn around. Will definitely return to this location.

I cannot say I have had any problems that arose...even minor with several rentals over the past few years...to suggest any improvements. Though it never bothered me to wait my turn for a slightly long time sometime previously, that is one area you might continue to strive to improve on, as sometimes you can get too busy to attend to everyone nearly as quickly as they would like. Having said that it is a long time since i have experienced much of a wait and way back when...it was not that bad. Keep up the great work!

Thank you all very much for an excellent experience with the rental. We worked with Miles when we first arrived, and he was very nice and helpful. Upon dropping off the vehicle, there were a few other employees who were there and very nice and helpful as well. Thank you!

The U Haul on Francisco Blvd, San Rafael, CA 94901 is my "go-to" U Haul location. They are prompt, courteous, and always very nice.

Check in line was LOOOONG even though everyone seemed to have a reservation. The person at the counter attempted to give me a truck that was extremely low on gas. When I asked her if that would get me to and back from the place I needed to go, she said, "probably not." Um, thanks... I was given a truck with a full tank after saying that it was unacceptable to give someone a truck that needed refueling almost immediately. Returning was a breeze.

Clean each vehicle after each rental, there was food all under the seats and broken glass on the passenger side. The clerk in San Rafael was amazing, very helpful and calm.

I like the graph that shows how many gallons is needed to get the gauge back up to where it was. I wish all car rentals did that. Also I like the idea of stickers on the existing damage. Can't think of any improvements - I joked that the next time I need to rent a car I'll just come and rent a truck instead - it was so easy..

The only reason I did not give excellent was because of employee attitude. In this case it was the manager. I have never seen someone so disconected and hardened. This seems to be a common theme in many of the U haul locations so it was not a big surprise, although the managers normally are better. The young man who took care of me later in the day when I returned was a real delight. Very positive attitude which is what you need. He is good manager potential for future.We don't need people projecting their heavy stuff on his while renting a van.

Was told fork lift was broken and we could not retrieve our Ubox on the arranged day. No effort was made to RENT a new piece of equipment to solve the problem and we were left without crucial thing like a bed for 2 days. Ubox customer service was terrible and that certainly made the mechanical issues at the SR location feel even more aggravated. Not recommending to friends.

Times are tough, but hiring another one or two employees would be beneficial. Every time I've rented or purchased from this location I've had to wait for the only counter person to be serviced. It's also unfortunate, that because of the location, you must cross a double-yellow line to turn into the facility. That sometimes can cause traffic problems. Finally, there is very little customer parking. You generally need to park blocks away and walk to the facility. Although it would be nice to see some of these changes, I will still use this U-Haul store as my go-to facility.

We were very displeased with your inability for us to return the trailer to the Locksley location in Auburn that we had told the dealer in San Rafael. We found out that we needed to deliver it to ROSEVILLE via a message after we left for Auburn. When we complained to customer service we were told that the Locksley Auburn location wouldn't take trailers and we had no choice. We were then transferred to "Kia" who told us she was a manager and offered us a $30 credit toward our next rental. we have yet to receive this credit. We told her we wanted $50 credit that $30 was not in line for a delivery to Roseville (30 miles each way out of our way) We would like to have someone in management contact us.

The young woman who processed my order was very friendly and professional. The young man who closed my transaction out was polite and friendly. Both of the workers created a positive rental experience for me

Very expensive for my needs that day and I had to find and load the blankets since the staff was overwhelmed. $1 per mile is far too much for a rental. Will look to Penske next time.

I used to really dread going to U-Haul at this location- it used to always take a ridiculous amount of time between arrival & getting in a truck to drive. Enormous improvement.

It was a little confusing as to which entrance to use. The one on E. Francisco is the one U-Haul wants us to use, but it wasn't made clear. Other patrons were coming in the side entrance and that produced a traffic jam as customers were trying to leave out of that entrance. Otherwise, great service, very well organized; easy and quick to return the trucks as well.
