Coast Truck Rental also rents cars through our Rent A Wreck franchise!

Coast Truck is a locally owned and family operated independent truck rental that has been serving San Francisco since 1983. Owner Tom Pendergast has been working in the rental industry in San Francisco since 1967, first with Jack Barrett Truck and Auto leasing, then staying on when, in 1973, that company was purchased by Coast Leasing of Los Angeles. When Coast Leasing was breaking up in 1983, Tom took over the San Francisco office and started the independently operated Coast Truck Rental. Starting first at the location at the corner of 8th and Harrison, Tom eventually moved to the current location at 2955 3rd St. In 1994 Tom was joined by his son Matt, and have been running Coast Truck as a family business ever since. In 1995 a Rent A Wreck car rental franchise was added, increasing our rental options to now include cars and passenger vans. It is our goal to take care of all your transportation needs promptly, efficiently, and at a reasonable price. From compact car to 16 foot bobtails, and all types and sizes in between, we can assure a clean, well running vehicle.
