The truck is basically always available and I am usually pretty good about responding quickly. I know there will be times you'll need a truck in a pinch at the last minute as I've had many requests, so please just allow enough time when requesting your pick up time.
2002 Toyota TacomaGreat utility, fun is just a side effect :)15576
The Tacoma is great. We had no problems. We will do it again if Jeff will permit. You Matter!
Jeff's vehicle is an absolute BEAST! It chewed up even the worst this season had to offer in Tahoe and laughed - just like you will be too when you're confidently rolling through while suckers are stuck putting on chains! Jeff himself is equally as awesome! Always available when we had even the smallest questions; super flexible and getting to/from him was easy peasy. Highly recommend!!
I think the only thing more reliable than Jeff's Toyota is Jeff himself. The truck has served me well before and I wanted to rent it again for my trip up to the snow. It was well worth it. The Tacoma was the sole reason we were allowed to go places other vehicles could not and it made the trip amazing.
Great experience renting from Jeff! The Tacoma ran great, equipped with all-terrain tires could handle anything we experienced no problem. Jeff was very helpful and responded quickly every time I had a question about the truck. No complaints here. Would recommend.
What a great truck! Very convenient to access and drop off. Jeff was great about responding to my questions. We encountered a large snow storm in the Sierras and this truck didn't skip a beat. Very stable, excellent tires, great truck.
Jeff was very accomodating and prepped the vehicle well before I got there. He was thorough with details about the truck and it rode and delivered as expected. Jeff was super accomodating with all my one-off questions and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from him again.
I rented Jeff's Tacoma for a weekend fishing trip to Potter lake. My journey required a 4x4, as the only way to get to the lake and surrounding mountains are via a dirt road, and takes about 1.5 hours. The Tacoma was easily up to the task.
Keeping in mind that this truck is 12 years old and has miles on it...
- capable off-roader
- easy to use 4x4 system (automatic locking hubs, shift in and out of 4WD on the fly)
- lots of ground clearance
- enough torque to climb very steep grades
- brand new knobby BFG tires
- strong brakes
- the 3" lift and tire setup is awesome on the street and off-road, but can get a little dicy on rough highways. Just be aware of that, and you'll be fine
- I couldn't get the AUX cable to work... This is most likely user-error, but I didn't have tunes for a five hour drive :(
To sum it all up, this truck will be on my list of rentals for the next mountain adventure! I'll just make sure to ask how to use the radio before I rent it again.
This truck was great for my move, and Jeff has conveniently left VERY VERY USEFUL straps and bungee cords for tying everything down. I was able to move a huge amount of furniture! Jeff was also very communicative and helpful and pickup/dropoff were convenient. Awesome value for this truck.
Great guy, perfect work truck for my moving household items, furniture, firewood, tools, etc. Jeff was open, helpful, and considerate of my trip extension requests. Highly recommend if you need or want a nice little capable 4x4 truck.
Pickup and drop off were very easy. The truck worked out very well for our trip. It has been a real pleasure dealing Jeff. He's got the process well polished, thinking of everything in advance. A great experience overall!
Needed a truck to move some boxes. Jeff was quick to respond to emails and very easy to deal with.
The vehicle is older with a stiffer clutch than I'm used to but otherwise great. Truck was clean, and ready to go. Key box was especially convenient.
Would recommend for IKEA runs, etc.
Whole transaction was smooth from start to finish.
Thank you Jeff!
I took Jeff's truck camping, and it was perfect. Plenty of space in the bed for all my gear, and being a midsize truck was still easy to drive and nimble. The truck has character; it's clear it has been used as a truck, and not just a commuter. The truck is in good running condition, and the only things I noticed were that the blower for the HVAC wasn't working, and the driver's side speaker would cut out intermittently; neither of these things really mattered to me, but they may to you.
Jeff was very responsive, accommodating, and clear in this communication with me. I can't imagine a smoother process. I recommend renting from Jeff 100% and I'd do it again in the future anytime I need a truck.
Everything works perfecto q the car Jeff was very helpful and easy to reach and work with I will rent this truck again , pick up location is perfect special if u plan and leave your car there I recommend this truck 200 times .gas mileage is amazing!
My husband and I were so satisfied with Jeff's truck! We were moving and needed a truck to hall a couple of big items to storage. Jeff's truck was great on gas which was a huge deal to us being that gas is expensive. His car had a handyy bag with moving gear such as ratchet tie down straps, gloves etc. which totally helped our move a smooth one. Thank you Jeff for saving us money! This was a great rental.
I had a great experience :) The whole process was simple and easy. Because there's a lock box with the key in it, I was able to pick it up and drop it off at my leisure. Soooo happy that there was a bag of bungee cords, gloves, tie downs, etc. in it. Jeff always responded quickly which was great. The truck smelled a little funny when I first went in, but I didn't notice it later, so maybe it was because I picked it up when it was raining. *shrugs* Either way, I recommend this 100% and I would totally rent again :)
The truck was perfect for or trip. We drove from San Mateo to Big Sur and back with no problems. Jeff was super helpful and easy to work with- the truck was just the same. Would definitely recommend this rental to anyone in need of a great pick up.
Jeff was extremely pleasant, easy, and quick to work with. Really great about facilitating my last minute furniture move. Truck was as described and easy to use. Inclusion of bungies was awesome. Uber between the truck location and San Mateo CalTrain was a little over $11. From Redwood Shores, Uber was around $17. If you need a basic truck, can drive stick, and can get to San Mateo... what are you waiting for?
The truck had a headlight out and sometimes the blinker didn't work. Having to signal a left turn by using my arm out the window while using a stick shift is a bit dangerous at times, even for the experienced stick driver. I ordered the truck last minute and picked it up the next day, so Jeff may not have had the chance to fix this before hand. None the less, it shouldn't be advertised in this condition. Plus I had to purchase my own moving straps since the equipment was lacking. I'm still giving Jeff five stars just because he's cool and I trust he'll have these issues fixed soon.
All I can say to that is... WOW!
Jeff made verything very easy and very informative towards the whole rental period. I needed to extend the rental and all I had to do was to just contact jeff and it was that simple, I kept his truck for three weeks. The truck also is a good dependable vehicle and great on gas too. I like the fact that it was very clean and a strong runner. If ever I need a rental or my friends are in town for a visit, I will be getting in touch with jeff. Also, I like to add that the comunication back and forth with jeff was very prompt and clear. He gets my two tumbs UP!
Thank you Jeff!
This was a great experience. Jeff was super nice, his truck was clean and ran exceptionally well, and we got our move finished with no problems. I'll be contacting him again for my next move in a few months.
My trip with Jeff's Toyota was superb! We needed this truck to tote things around the Bay Area and it did the job nicely! Runs smoothly and best yet, Jeff was very easy to work with. He makes the process of picking up the truck and dropping off very easy. Highly recommended and easily five stars!
Jeff was great in communicating and flexibility. He couldn't be there when I came to get the truck so he left the key in a lockbox. The truck is in excellent shape and drives well. I'll definitely rent this vehicle from Jeff again.
