Great customer service, very professional

I picked up a van that had a quarter of a tank of gas. I was charged $7 for gas upon returning the van even though I returned it at a quarter of tank. I took pictures as proof and was still told I owed for gas. I had to ask the attendant to stop the couple who was about to drive off in the truck. We both looked at it and it read a quarter of a tank. I am very disappointed to know that Uhaul is ripping people off like this. The attendant refunded me but said that the truck was slightly on an incline downward and that is why the gas read incorrect. I took my pictures while the truck was leveled. I will never rent at this location again and will ALWAYS be sure that my final charges are correct before leaving. Also they take money under the table. I paid $7 cash for a dolly because I forgot to add it at time of rental. It was not included on my final receipt so that means it was put in somebody’s pocket.

The app only worked up to a point. The truck that I was supposed to drive was buried behind many other trucks. I ended up asking the attendant for help and then I had to give him my credit card again. I wouldn’t use the app in the future- extra work and a waste of time

The vehicle was not maintained properly. The power steering was very noisy. It leaked in my driveway. So that was either the brakes or the power steering The oil for bout is red. They both made a loud noise when used

I had a negative experience as I ended up paying significantly more than the amount I was quoted and the amount that would have been fair. I was supposed to return the Uhaul by 2:30pm on Sunday when the location was closed, but in all fairness I did not get it back until more like 3:30pm. I left the vehicle in the designated location and returned the key, but I did not know I had to check in using my cell phone as I was accustomed to renting Uhauls without this caveat. Around 6:00pm I realized that I was supposed to check it back in with the phone and allow it to access my location, so I traveled back to the Uhaul location to complete the process on the phone by around 7:00pm. By that time the vehicle was already moved by a Uhaul employee. I was charged for the extra time (upwards of 3.5 extra hours) along with a fee for not having completed the check-in on my phone early enough, despite the associated fee being described as inured when the employee checked in the vehicle the "next day." I brought up my frustration the next day to the employee who I had been working with, but he indicated there was nothing that could be done about the excessive charges. The inflexibility of Uhaul in this scenario shows that their system was set up to make profit on small inconsequential mistakes such as failing to adapt to their new system by promptly checking in the uhaul on my phone. The rental ended up costing almost twice what it should have, which made the task I completed with it not really worth it, and the whole experience left a rather bad taste in my mouth. I will think twice before renting from Uhaul again, and will choose to pursue other options.

Charging me $20 because an after hours return for a day long rental is not okay. Especially when I followed the direction on my contract. Contact me at 650-430-3211 to make this right.

The gentleman who helped us was excellent- so kind, helpful and easy to communicate with. He made a stressful day much easier.

Your online reservation system is a complete mess! Even though I picked the location and time AND received a confirmation number, that didn't AT ALL mean that I was able to rent my vehicle from the location I picked nor the time I picked. So very WEIRD!! Why would you send a CONFIRMATION # if the parameters I chose were not actually CONFIRMED! It also said that someone from U-Haul would be contacting me to REconfirm. No one contacted me. I will DEFINITELY HESITATE before choosing U-Haul again.

Customer service was terrible. Rude attendants. I came to get it and did not realize I could not leave my car there so I said I would be back in 15 minutes. Upon my arrival he was gone. Door locked and not answering phone. I had to call to get 800 help. Then when he arrived(20 minutes later) I very clearly said I may need it longer and asked what would happen if I needed to bring it back after closing. The guy who checked me out told me about key drop etc. when I returned the guy was angry that I didn’t bring it back on time and was arguing that he left me a vm and needed the truck back. Rude. I will probably discontinue working with uhaul In the future. In addition the tank should be full upon pick up so that we can easily fill upon return. It is a scam that I have to guess and keep putting money in the tank to see if it gets the the fill line. Absolutely terrible.

My mileage for this ride seems to be doubled and now I need to figure out how that is and get some sort of refund.

Sankaranarayanan S. on


There is a long wait and no bathrooms. Also, the process for self-check-in with the app has to be more intuitive which could have reduced the pick up time a whole lot.

I did not appreciate changing my location from Gilman 6th street location to here at the last minute. This location crew are great and very helpful, but the online system ended up switching the location and it delayed all my move by one day. I had to pay for one more day or rental plus one more day of labor. As a result my move costed twice! Not to mention the extra milage and gas charges due to going to 7 mile distance location change!

1) things I’d ordered online didn’t appear in the system and I had to re-order 2) vehicle condition photos weren’t accurate. photo listed as passenger side was driver side. 3) Person in charge was hard to understand and had to print paperwork 4x before it was accurate. I’m honestly not sure what I signed.

Jeffrey H. on


Everything was great except I was charged a $50 cleaning fee which I’d like to contest.

Erica E. on


It’s a little tight to get in an out of the location but we had nice service.

Alexa S. on


I was not informed of the after hours service fee and what time the shop closed.

James M. on


The air conditioning did not work

Haiba B. on


Great experience. The truck was ready, perfectly clean. The associate was friendly and very helpful. Thank you!



No after hours dropoff, had to go twice. No parking, had to park truck on the sidewalk just so I could return it.

Julio L. on


My overall experience with this rental was disappointing and frustrating. When talking with the Rep we had agreed the rental truck was going to be dropped off at Concord location, but when I called to confirm the drop off location it was in Martinez location which was never agreed too. Also, I had to go to 4 different U-Hauls to get the truck I reserved 3 weeks in advance and confirmed the day before too.

Kito L. on

Michael P. on


It was not clear where to park the truck or return the key, and the location was dirty.
