I use your service regularly, and will in the future. I would suggest a good cleaning and a personal walk around and familiarization of the vehicle.

We needed a larger truck than the one reserved and when we brought it back to exchange the agent did not know what the extra cost would be. The second truck we received was tagged with graffiti and the oil change light was on but the staff said to ignore it, even though we travelled over 400 miles towing a vehicle. Overall not a positive experience with this location.

John Martin should be the CEO of Uhaul.

We had to wait in line twice , that was not good , that should be changed , once you check in, then hook up the trailer you should go back in to the counter and sign the papers and out you go .

Renting the Uhaul van couldn't have been easier, and I thought it was easy enough before now. Great job Uhaul, you guys just keep getting better and better ... and I'm not just saying that. The trucks get better mileage, better amenities (air, power windows), and checking in the van took minutes ... yes, minutes. It was awesome! I hate moving but now the rental truck part of it is a BREEZE.

First of all, UHaul called me the day before my pickup date and informed me that my original reservation could not be met because the truck I confirmed was not available. As a result the truck that was available was not big enough to hold all of my household belongings. So, I was forced to rent an additional truck on the day I was notified causing me to miss a day of work and making it so I had to move a whole truckload of boxes myself. Then, the day of my original reservation I was given a truck that had a bad passenger mirror making it so I could not see out of my passenger side at all. Upon returning the truck the next morning at the 4417 hollister ave location I mentioned the situation to the owner, Abel, who seemed very disinterested in my experience. I became very upset over the situation and expressed that he should listen to his customers when they are expressing there concerns and experience...as though he actually cared. Upon doing so one of his employees, John, stated to me that he would send me away without a truck, leaving me stranded while having to move. I have rented several other times from the location and have had a good experience. Although, I never had to receive customer service in a situation such as the one I was subjected to. I did tell the owner that it would be a nice service if, when a renter was solo, someone could adjust the mirror for them as having to get out of the vehicle several times to adjust the mirrors was time consuming and difficult to do alone. Nonetheless, the truck I was given had a bad passenger mirror and when driving down the highway it pushed in against the truck so you couldn't see at all on the passenger side making it very dangerous. In closing I would say that UHaul should stop confirming truck rentals that don't exist and, that locations should care more about the safety of there renters!!!!!!!

I rented a U-Haul 10x15x11 Storage Unit, #2204, at 4101 State Street,Santa Barbara ,93110, and was told that I would get no discount on the rental. I think that this is unfair. Please give consideration on giving me something on the storage rental.

See comments for pick-up location. Trying to match the gas level mid-tank is difficult. Require full tank at pick-up and drop off like car rental agencies do.

Despite booking online and checking in ahead of time, there is only so much one person on the desk can do. My wait time for service to Pick-Up was too long. U-Haul needs to look at this. There were 4 others in line behind me.

Staff was professional! Trailer was great and trailer lighting worked perfect! Dropped off trailer after hours to pitch black yard. If there was any kind of motion sensor lighting it was not in operation.
