I received a call the day before I was scheduled to pick up the Uhaul from this location telling me that they didn't have a 26 foot truck available at this location and were trying to send me to other locations that were a good 45-75 minute drive away. I had reserved this truck way in advance so there really wasn't any good excuse as to why the 26 foot truck I reserved wasn't going to be at the location I reserved it at. After a lot of back and forth and trying to send me to three other much further away locations the agent says "ok I found you a truck at the San Rafael location"?!? This added a lot of stress as to whether or not there really would be a truck there waiting for me to pick up for our very long three day journey.

Not this time where the staff on duty were very efficient, but sometimes the wait to check-in can be a little long. If I have already checked-in online, is there not the possibility of a "pick up & go" process without the wait?

Tire blow outs should not be left to chance or serendipity. They should be checked for, anticipated, and prevented with highest order of effort. All tire and safety measures need to be vastly improved, including more diligence in maintaining clean wind screens, better adjustable mirrors, and in assuring presence of emergency lighting. Furthermore, two-hour waits for service /aid are not acceptable and additional delay due to actual work time adds salt to the wound. I suggest more service centers be established. There is little excuse for having a new tire and a technician (Oscar) travel some 30 miles in a area like the San Francisco Bay Area. Oscar's one-way trip took over hour. Total time expended by Oscar exceeds 3 hours, I'm certain. During actual repairs, Oscar was super fast and most efficient with time in his repairs.

We were given smaller truck than we had reserved online causing me to have to leave valuable items behind and having to pay extra fee to remove. Two tires blew out on the highway causing a day's delay and costing my brother his job as a result.

The cost for mile on my rental of a van was supposed to be .69 per mile. That's what it said in my estimate/ But my invoice said I was charged .99 per mile, adding $15 to the cost of my 55 miles driven. Not fair.

The pick up I reserved was not available because1 person didn't return his yet and the other had a flat. The flat should have been an easy fix. They have their own mechanic shop onsite and I should have at least received a phone call alerting me to the situation. The people, except the one female, were rude.

The equipment was ok but the van wasn't clean at all. And when I was back to return the van that was nobody to receive. I wait 10 minutes and then I put the keys in the desk and left.

Difficult entrance from San Rafael City side, i.e. easy to go into exit instead of entrance due to the way the lot and streets are laid out, plus lack of clear signage for newcomers like me and my wife.
