I needed a truck to transfer some of my stuff to my storage in Fremont. Its at least a 35 mile trip. Not checking the weather for that day, I was so thankful that I chose Erich's Tacoma because the camper shell on the truck was a blessing in disguise. It was pouring that afternoon on my way to my storage. Added bonus was the awesome mpg you get from the truck and Erich was very easy to deal with. So if you need a truck to haul some things around.... a truck with a camper shell may definitely come in handy.
Erich was really easy to communicate with!
We took the truck for a two month trip through California, so we're in the right position to say it's a really reliable car. Loved it!
You can just sleep in the back and go wherever - we bought a super nice matress at Ikea, perfect! Make sure you bring your tapes and cd's, the soundsystem got some real deal bass going on :)
For European standards it looks like a big car, but it has the feel of a Volvo station, solid and reliable.
Just make sure you plan your trip wisely, because any extra miles will cost you 75c per mile!
This is a great truck! Super reliable, and fun to drive! Highly recommended. Its name is Jupiter, which in Greek mythos is the god of sky and thunder (c.f. Wikipedia). I think this name is apropos considering it lives high in the Oakland hills. :-)
Every thing was fine. Erich was great. I did have problems starting the car sometimes. But I learned from Erich when I returned it, that the problem was that I was not pushing the clutch in far enough when trying to start it. So if you rent this car and ever have trouble starting it, be sure to push the clutch in all the way.
Great truck! More hassle free than my 2014 Scion Fr-S, shifts way smoother. Erich was exceptionally willing to work with me to make things suitable for both of us, and very professional and nice all the way through.
Erich's Toyota Tacoma pickup was great to drive, and there was plenty of room for my daughter's move. Erich and his wife were friendly and took good care of us. I'd rent this pickup again without hesitation. Thanks!
Erich was great with communication and the car was exactly as described. It drove well and worked perfectly for the weekend. I would certainly rent from him again. Thank you Erich!

Erich's Toyota is the perfect truck. Relatively fuel efficient, handles great, in impeccable condition for a 2001 pickup. And Erich was lovely - on time, communicative, punctual. Thank you for sharing Erich! You made our weekend much more enjoyable.
