The back of truck was not clean and still had leftover fertilizer in it.the back should be washed before next customer.

This was the first time ever using U-Haul or hauling anything with our car. Lady that helped was great and vehicle ran great without any problems.

My reservation was made to another location after confirming the incorrect location. it has been over two weeks since returning the vehicle in cleaner condition than rented and was advised to pursue the $50 reservation guarantee. I have yet to be contacted after making two separate calls over 15 minutes each to complain and gain information on the reservation guarantee. Please contact me at 805-455-4273 in regards to this error on the behalf of Santa Barbara U-haul Asst. GM "Stacie". Thank you, Francisco Lugo

The headlights were very dim, it seemed as if one light was completely out - not the safest driving conditions for nighttime.

The only part of my experience I didn't like was waiting in line to pick up my trailer, while the person in front of me was trying to be upsold on additional services. But hey, that's a part of doing business. Within realistic limitations, I don't know how anyone could do better than the staff at this U-Haul did. I will recommend them and use them again. Thanks! Sincerely, Thorin Scott

Very frustrating initial experience to arrive at 7 a.m. and to be told they had no reservation for me on file. I drove all the way back home to get me printed confirmation (i did have a reservation at this location) and by the time I returned magically they now had my reservation. Turns out the gentleman who initially helped me didn't know how to refresh the screen or system. This killed an extra half hour of time I just didn't have on a busy moving day.

Eliminate the environmental tax. Only government has the power to levy taxes otherwise the environmental charge for a "carbon footprint " is an unfair Uhaul surcharge I do not agree with.

The manager there was fantastic! There was a glitch in my reservation and she smoothed it out and calmed me down. I think her name was Ann? I do not remember but she got me set up with exactly what I reserved and was great to work with.

The truck was scratched up and worn but worked perfectly fine. Please give a bigger space on the form to help customers write down scratches that are not marked with an X sticker. Have a Uhaul employee accompany the person while they check over the truck / milage for quicker check-out time of the customer (instead of the customer going back and forth to ask questions from the employee inside the building).

It's really annoying to have to wait in a long line, but you have to do it twice when you rent a UHaul. First to rent the trailer, and then again (amazingly) to return it. In the old days, I could simply drop it off and go, with an email receipt sent. But now, I have to wait in line for 10-15 minutes just to say, "Yes, put the $20 charge on the credit card I gave you 3 hours ago."

I thought the process was fine. I got there and waited in line while the person in front of me had to give all their info. I realized I forgot my wallet, went home to get it and reserved online. So when i went back it went quickly. The tailer just had some dirt/pine needles and a lot of rust. But it was okay for my needs and a deal at $15.

The other store really messed up and I don't plane on using uhaul service anytime in the near future if ever again. If Penski was an option I will would that them in a heart beat.

I would recommend this one based solely on location. Is what it is and you'll get the job done. It did not feel very professional, though. Parts of my order were left out (be sure to check the inside of the truck to make sure your furniture pads, straps, and dolly are inside), I was told to fill the gas up "where it is now, a little more than half" even though I found it below half, and when I called to confirm their closing time at 7pm, an employee told me it was closer to 6:40 (so actually at 6:40 or you'd just prefer I not come in later..?). But like I said, it got the job done. Just don't expect super service.
