I reserved a trailer at the 433 ocean st location, and they did not have the trailer when I arrived. I had to go to another location after waiting a long time, and while everybody I dealt with was nice, the delay was a disappointment and a big inconvenience on my day.

There was one person working at this location when I went to pick up my Uhaul Trailer. About 5 groups were scheduled to pickup their rental at the same time. The employee was being over worked from trying to help all of the customers that came at the same time. The inside of the trailer had oil on the floor. I also had to drive 40 minutes to pickup the trailer which was not convenient.

Not worth saying anything.!!! Well for the guy behind the counter is was worth his commission . If you plan to rent anything here, my advise is, Don't ask for any discounts or to match rates from other U-Haul locations, otherwise you'll be getting a non stop over and over lecture of how they make money, commission, etc, etc, etc. He's not about to loose his commission for another U-Haul location mistake.

We paid for our reservation in Fresno to move our daughter across town in Santa Cruz.We then purchased some blankets for the trip. The Fresno sales person, a young female then proceeded to cancel our truck in Santa Cruz, probably inadvertanly. When We Got To Santa Cruz we were told the fresno clerk cancelled our rental when we rented the blankets. Fortunately we were able to get a truck for 4 hrs. PLEASE PROVIDE TRAINING for the fresno, staff, as she was being assisted by a Co worker. I realize people make mistakes as new employees, but I think a little OJT would be very beneficial to you. Other than that, I will continue to use your rental company as your guys do a good job.

I had my reservation switched from Santa Cruz to Watsonville ,forty miles away and wasn't notified. That's like having an airline switch airports on you, after you e been dropped off. Was forced to take larger truck at Santa Cruz location at greater expense. Paid for full insurance and returned it two hours later. I was told my tank was full and to return it full. I drove it eight miles and then put in over 2.2+ gallons of gasoline at the station . That doesn't seem right to me. Perhaps you have an reason and can tell me why I should use u haul again. Thank you, Marcus Theriault 415-533-6797

Only one guy there - overworked - but he handled all the customers with aplomb! Wish I knew his name to give him a compliment.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Jared told me what I needed, like a 2" ball, before I arrived so the rental went smoothly.

This was not Doc Auto's fault but when I arrived at the other Ocean Street UHaul location first where I had made a reservation, I was told that my reservation I had made two days earlier had been cancelled by corporate with no explanation and no trucks of any size were available that day within 50 miles. I was only moving my daughter 60 miles. So I went to Doc Auto on my own and a pick up truck was there that had just been returned. It was all there was. So instead of getting a 15 foot truck with a ramp which I had reserved, I ended up paying almost the same amount for a pick up truck and had to use my son's other truck to move all the furniture. Lifting the furniture up on a pick up was extremely difficult not to mention, paying for mileage and gas for two trucks and having to make a round trip. I was very unhappy with this experience. There also needs to be more equipment available in the Santa Cruz California area.
