The service was excellent

emilia M. on


The truck was good but not clean the clerk at the front desk very rude and obnoxious. no customer service skills at all. called me very rude before I picked up the truck 5 minutes past my 12:30 pick up time. told him I was around the corner, he didnt care and when I got to the location, super rude and he made me feels as if he was doing me a favor by renting the truck. I told him I was paying but he didn't care. obsolete horrible experience at this location and the customer service the worse I have ever experience!! I have rented trucks in the past but never have I experienced anything like this. I will never go back to this location.

this agent was very polite and service was appreciated, picking up and leaving. You’re not asking but making the reservation at the 1 (800) GO UHAUL ... was not a pleasant experience. We were under stress. Your rep was rude, at best. Good company. Good service. Need some Customef Appreciation counseling.

Only difficulty was uploading pictures on the self checkout. Otherwise, it was an excellent experience.

Harmon K. on


You guys switched equipment on me without my consent



Make sure trucks are emptied of previous customers trash and that van is swept. Was impressed truck had full tank of gas! Location was super convenient and the young man that helped us definitely went out of his way to make sure that all went well. He is an asset to u-haul!

My reservation was incorrect, they had my reservation in for two days and a 15' box truck, not the four days/10' truck that I had reserved. While they gave me the 15' for the same rate as the 10', I did not want the 15' truck, as where I was planning on going with it was far better suited to the smaller truck. And regarding the truck, what a turd. 95k miles, but it seemed like it had 4x as many miles on it. Dirty and smelling of cigarette smoke, this truck was a wandering beast on the highway. No cruise control, nothing other than AM/FM radio and the world's most annoying parking brake buzzer. Please retire this POS. Oh, and it only netted 4 MPG during my rental period. Yes, four miles per gallon. Before you try to put the blame on me, know that the truck only carried nine bicycles and two ez-up tents, and the max speed driven was about 65MPH. The truck was never left idling. Seriously, drive this truck to the junkyard and replace it with something modern, efficient and safe.

Good customer service. There was a mileage typo on the contract that I didn't notice when I picked up the van. I believe the van was at 1994 and the contract said 1954. I only drove 4 miles (2 miles each way from pickup to my house and back) because I only used the van to store my garage while the floor was being refinished. The manager was very reasonable in working out this misunderstanding with me. I appreciated that and will recommend them to friends.

Truck was a mess - last renter had smoked in it and left a roach & beer tab!! Also upset with the extra little dings in billing - rental tax and credit card fee that weren't disclosed and I've never paid before.

Jackie M. on


Staff doesn't seem too friendly. Took the trailer back and the guy came out and told me to unhook it myself and he would email me the receipt. When I told him I have back issues he did unhook it but seemed very put out by my problem. He was in a huge hurry. Couldn't even say thank you. I'm not a happy customer!

The rental situation was very poorly handled. Ordered a 15 foot truck, told that I had to take a 10 foot truck, five hours later than my planned start time. Went to pick up truck and told that it wasn't there. Told to call back in an hour. I called back, no truck. Called again 30 inutes later and was told that the person who had the truck "extended" their time and "there was nothing they could do". But, they offered me another truck at after 5pm that day, a full10 hours later! I asked them if there was another truck anywhere near, they sent me to Novato, 20 miles out of my way and an additional two hours later! UHaul, you have to get your scheduling fixed. Not a happy customer.... I must say though, the folks at the UHaul place in Novato were very nice. Can's say the same about San Rafael. In total, I lost a complete day, and had to send the movers home. What a waste of time, frustration, and money.

Upgrade knowledge and competence of personnel.

Drop off of our trailer was so very easy.



The Uhaul was having mechanical trouble and the folks were less than helpful. They even charged me $9 for gas as I could not fill up the tank in fear that the truck was breaking down on the way back. I had to unload all my storage belongs at their site into my vehicle which was very inconvenient. I have found the staff to be a bit gruff and inconvenienced by business walking in the door.
