Let me preface this review by saying that I've spent a good part of my life driving trucks and trailers of all sorts -- dual axle dump trailers, 5th wheel horse trailers, etc. The guys who hitched and unhitched the trailer from my truck were both incredibly rude. The guy who hooked me up was extremely short-tempered, talked down to me and basically ordered me around like a child. It took a lot of deep breaths to get through the interaction. The guy who unhooked me wasn't quite as bad, but still far from an exemplary employee. I think it had been a busy weekend with college move ins and outs. Still, I don't think that's a good excuse for such terribly poor customer service. That said, the people inside were very nice and easy to deal with.

Almost 50 cents per mile is extortion! One in-town trip to move some items into a storage unit cost more than the rental of the van... not what I call honest advertising. I feel misled! Someone should file a class action.

Military discount promised by reservationists, refused by location owner. I do not do business with companies who are dishonest and lack business ethics. Budget promises and gives military discounts.

There was an extensive vehicle check when I turned in the truck. Would have been nice to know I was supposed to check these items before checking out the truck. Would have been best if the person who post-checked would have run a pre-check with me.

(this is Joe Woodard, Peggy Grossman's wife: i drove the truck today). I actually had a very fine and efficient and pleasant experience today, UNTIL a bizarre finale. I brought the truck back with exactly the same fuel level as i left with, just over 1/4 tank, but the fellow checking me in fiercely quarreled with me, insisting it was on the 1/4 tank mark. I literally pointed to that mark and showed he was mistaken, and i assumed he had waived the extra fee (i was on the verge of calling a manager or second employee to verify my finding). His body language told me he agreed with me, so imagine my surprise when i checked the receipt tonight and found he had slapped the punitive extra charge. obviously, 9 dollars is not a big deal, but it's the principle and the fact that the whole encounter was disturbing and disrespectful to me which gives me pause. i would hope you can at very least refund the wrongly assessed penalty to me. thank you, joe woodard

the location was alright, but the person I made my reservation through should probably be fired. He was not helpful, lied, and tried talking to me in a couple of different fake accents. I'm pretty sure he's trying to sabotage uhaul.

I didn't have an appt and they were fast with getting the truck and service was nice.

I ordered online a 6 x 12 foot trailer. I got a 5 x 9 foot trailer with no other option, due to this location stating that I would have to bring their 6 x 12 foot trailer back to the santa barbara location after using it to move hundreds of miles. That is ridiculous. I thought that what Uhaul was for. THis caused many problems for me in my move, including not being able to take all my things and having to sell off things that wouldn't fit. It was really, really awful. I should have gotten a free trip and rental.

I filled up the take to 3/8 full exactly. This is what I was told to do, I was charged 12 dollars for gas. I called the location numerous times to discuss the charge and was either put on hold or told someone would call me back. They never called back. This ended up wasting lots of my time and I never resolved the problem of the charge.

The u-haul company as a whole is poorly run. I wasn't advised that I was going to be without the guaranteed vehicle I had ordered. Then offered me a smaller vehicle thinking it would solve the problem. Then tried to send me to a further location to get a vehicle I needed. Never using you again.

Spectacular experience! Service was quick and efficient and the rental was clean and ran perfectly. The staff was very helpful and efficient, especially during such a busy time of year. They gave me the best deal possible for my rental; a gesture which, as a student, I won't overlook. Santa Barbara U-Haul definitely gained a returning customer and I will readily recommend this location to all my friends for their moving needs!

Two locations close to each other. Went to 1st location initially and they were completely useless. Very unhelpful, rude and made no attempt to help. Several young girls in U HAUL uniforms standing around doing nothing. Went to second location and the guy at the counter gave me a long lecture on being late even though this was because of the first location wasting my time. I had called and informed them that I would be a little late and the employee on the phone said it would be OK. Return was very small and the staff were excellent.

Inspector marked gauge 1/16 of a tank low (3/8 v 7/16) and I got charged $13 for gas. Frankly the fuel level wobbled so much I have no idea how that margin of error matters to Uhaul. Either way the attendant refused to recheck the fuel level and I needed to leave for something. I guess that's what I get for returning the truck 24 hours early. I'll stick with Penske in the future.

I originally made a reservation at the location in Ojai and when I went to pick up my truck they did not have the size I requested. They did nothing to try and make it right and I am glad that the Hollister location was so helpful.
