Great service and people, many issues through process however. Service team forgot to give us furniture pads, got a flat tire on drive with load despite being a new trailer and was asked after pick-up to return to a location 45 min from our destination.

Sherry, whom I spoke with on the phone to schedule the pickup of my U-Haul at the San Rafael location did an exceptional job on the phone. She had amazing phone presence and was very warm. I will be back.

The San Rafael U-Haul was very friendly and accommodating and sympathetic to my poor experience in Santa Barbara. Saul was very helpful and recommended I will inform corporate about my experience in Santa Barbara.

The staff (specifically the person in the yard) is exceptionally rude and unprofessional. I was ignored for 10 minutes while trying to return a vehicle. When he finally did show up he barked at me to move the truck over 5 feet ( out of the eventual parking space. I refused and tossed him the keys. He went on to scream at me using very foul language. Management at that store has a long way to go on how they select employees. Never again

Was disappointed in the customer parking availability. I was directed to park in the "lot on the other side of the fence" even though there was a large "no U-Haul parking" sign. I went back to the desk to confirm it was ok and the attendant assured me it was. When I returned the next day I had a large sticker on my window indicating the car was subject to towing. It would be helpful if you either had more parking on-site or better relationships with your neighbours.

I was not told about a 4 hour window and that I had to return the truck by 1 pm. at the time I scheduled the rental by phone. I said I wouldn't need it all day but probably mid afternoon. This was a total shock when I went to pick it up. I paid a full days rental rate and had to return it by 1 pm. This was totally unacceptable

Our order got jumbled pretty badly to the point where we had 4 different contracts going. It would've been a lot easier had we gone to the location from the beginning instead of reserving online. Otherwise equipment was in good condition and everything worked out in the end.

The morning attendant was rude, unfriendly and unkempt. Bad taste at pick up. The young man on duty during drop off was, on the contrary, helpful, friendly and a pleasure to deal with.
