The Empire Mini Storage and U-Haul at the Alameda San Jose were OK. HOWEVER, the traffic control unit was a disaster with respect to arranging a one-way moving truck rental from San Rafael to San Jose. Confirming twice a truck rental, one as far a Chico pick-up, and then in both cases no truck was available. There ought to be some organisation consequences due to such poor performance.

Seamus took my reservation, checked me in and out - and is fantastic! The entire experience was seamless and completely stress-free. I highly recommend!!

I rented a small trailer to pick up aKawasaki UTV that I recently bought. The vehicle was too wide to fit on the trailer. I called to see if the location had a larger trailer, it did. I asked how wide the trailer was & was told 6'. I returned the smaller one & towed the 6'er to retrieve the UTV. This 6' trailer was again too small since the sides at the gate made entry impossible. I guess this was my fault but not knowing that 6' ain't 6' is critical knowledge that wasn't passed along!

Mobile checkout/checkin process is laborious!

Outside of vehicle was muddy. Inside was clean

For the second time in two weeks, U-Haul has changed what I asked for. Last time I reserved a 26 foot truck and was given a 15 foot truck. This time I got the 15 foot truck I wanted but I had to go to Novato to get it instead of San Rafael as reserved


Friendly and outgoing service. I will most certainly be utilizing this location time and time again.


The app check in wasn't working for anyone this morning


I went to the website first which stated the hours of operation. I called @9:00 am and a recorded message stated that the business opened at 9:00 am. I then called every 10 minutes and got the same message until a person answered @9:41am. I told him that I thought that they had interesting hours. He asked me what I meant and I told him that I had tried 4 times previously to get a person. He told me that there were 2 employees there and he couldn't figure out why I was not successful in reaching them. Hmmmmmm. Felt uncomfortable to me and at the end of the day, when I returned the truck I had my cell phone with me when I walked in the door to bring the truck back, and finish my business. I left, got in my car to drive home (only 6 mins. away) I realized that my cell phone was not with me. I immediately called them and they told me that it was not there. I went back anyway and looked around. I tried calling my cell phone 2 times to perhaps hear it, without luck. The third time I called, it was shut off. I feel that someone in that facility took my phone. Later that evening I got an email alerting me that my iCloud id had been attempted. Big bummer. There is no other place that my phone could have been.


Extremely easy in and out. I was impressed with efficiency of the operation

Leagues ahead of your closest local U-Haul to me in 94901

Your online process is not up to the same standard. Cumbersome and inefficient. Felt more like a data collection process than a business transaction.

Robert S.

The vehicle cabin as dirty. Several vehicles (including mine) were parked in the fire lane despite the red painted curb and the warning signs. I hope that the fire department never has to try to get past these vehicles to fire a fire.

Jean H.

The staff was so supportive. I did not have the electric plug or cigarette lighter charger to charge my phone and the guys gave me their personal one to keep, and also helped me out with a lock. They went above and beyond and also delayed their lunch so I can arrive early and pick up the truck. So grateful!

Derek C.

Clean- ish. There were leaves in the back and it smelled bad. The worst was the dependence on the app. The gas level was different than on the paper. I told the fellow. He said use the app. The app said the same amount I saw in the car. So there was no update needed. Upon returning he says I didn't put enough. Bad experience. Use people. Not the app. I don't think it is an issue with this location so much as with U-Haul. Go Penske!
