I asked for a package of blankets that I ended up not using. It would have been nice to not be charged for something I did not use. The package was unopened.

Check-in guys was a bit of a downer. Could have provided better customer service and at least pretend that he doesn't hate his life.

I rented a trailer on this occasion. The equipment was ready to go when I arrived, in clean condition. Completing the paperwork took only about 5 minutes before I was ready to depart. The check-in process was very speedy also, with the transaction completed outside in the return area. Great experience with everyone at this location!

Don't include the attic area when you list size of the cargo area. My 20 footer was really only 20' in the upper two feet. The main cargo area was 17'6".

Rude. A simple statement would have been effective and appreciated: "we have to unhitched the trailer, please don't do it yourself". Rather than vague "ill do that" followed by "I told you not to do that". Not appreciated at all. Otherwise, the trailer served its purpose and got the job done.

The experience was overall positive, except that I had to wait a good 10 mn for someone to show up at the counter. Later when I picked up the trailer I had to wait another 10 to 15 mn as the same manager was working on a mini van and decided to totally ignore me until he was done. Over all, I spent a lot of time waiting when you add the paperwork, return, etc. The rest was fine.

When I picked up the 20 foot truck I asked if I good get a couple of road cones. The guy in the back said we don't have those. I pointed to ones spread around the lot. He then suggested I go inside, I did and the guy at the counter said we do not supply those. You would think with all the tight parking and streets in SB they would supply or at least offer to rent them. Then when I brought back the truck I was automatically charged on my credit card when I told the guy at the front counter I would be paying with cash when I picked it up and I told the guy in the back when I handed over the truck for return that I would take care of it inside. They just ignored me. I was not in the mood to hassle with it after a long day packing and moving a house. So the following day I get a call from a guy at the Uhaul first thing in the morning asking me if I returned the truck after hours??? I responded no I brought it back 4:45PM and gave it to the guy in the back, he responds "oh we can't find the keys" well thanks for calling me at 7 AM because you guys are incompetent and do not follow direction and company producers. Did I mention I brought the truck back with more gas then it left with and I had it for only 7 hours but was not offered discount or even a thank you.

Vehicles need to be washed between users. I rent here often because the equipment is well maintained and it has the right price, but the vehicles are always dirty. Sure would be nice if this changed.

location or along our route. The system seemed outdated and cumbersome when it could be so simple. Instead, I had to search google on my phone as we drove, call the shops, explain our situation and see if they had the trailer available. With other companies this would have been streamlined much better! Everyone who worked with us at the 3 shops (Newbury Park, Santa Barbara and Oakland, as well as customer service) was pleasant and polite. Customer Service's capabilities were cumbersome and outdated. In order to make a simple switch in Santa Barbara, I ended up making probably 8 + calls to enable this to happen.
