The U-Haul employees who assisted me were very polite and professional. Keith was especially helpful. Overall, the experience of picking up and returning the truck I rented was very good.

Everyone at the location was extremely helpful, very pleasant to talk to, and went out of their way to do as much as possible to help me load my antique mini cooper on the trailer correctly and safely. I can't say enough about the experience but to sum things up I highly recommend this location and am very pleased with every aspect.

Give a VERBAL explanation of the extremely strict $30 penalty fee, don't just have it buried in the paper-work. It will be applied for ANY deviation on Fuel Gauge re-fill. I thought I was on the mark when I gassed up, and then got hit with a $30 fee for a $7.50 fuel charge! This is a TOTAL RIP-OFF!!! The customer should have more than a bad guess when attempting to comply in good faith. U-Haul can either charge the penalty on the bet that the customer will be off by a bit OR U-Haul can get free gas in the rental vehicles when customers over-fill out of fear of the penalty charge! Heads you win, tails I lose. The fix is in - NOT FAIR DEALING at all. I do NOT blame the employees at the location. This is a corporate policy designed to take advantage of the public whenever possible

Improve customer service. This location is always very slow even when there are only a couple of customers and the staff is often rude.

I have no idea why they over-charge and then issue a refund upon return of the vehicle. I am due a $50 credit for a truck I rented a week ago. It's very inconvenient that I have to constantly check my bank account to see if there's a problem, and 50 bucks is a lot to some people. I called to ask and was told all I can do is just wait and hope the refund comes through. Why not just charge the asking rate, and then charge more if needed upon return of the vehicle? Seems less hassle for the customer that way.

Really frustrated at the fact that the representative did NOT go over our contract as thoroughly as he claimed to have. We had been stranded for 3 hours as our car broke down and so were eager to get back home as soon as possible. Turns out there was a 40cent per mile fee if we went over the mile limit. Representative told us that with the day rental we would not be charged for miles. Totally mislead and forced to pay for unforeseen fees *on our end* STRESS TO CUSTOMERS THESE DETAILS, OTHERWISE IT SEEMS MISLEADING AND DECEITFUL

It took a little extra time checking the vehicle back in when there were two people in the office and I was the only person waiting. It was worth the wait but customers come first. The service was excellent once time was taken to complete the paperwork. The attitude was friendly. I come to rent regularly at this location.

The truck made a lot of strange sounds. Belt slipping and seemed to get worse gas milage than previous truck rentals.

Not helpful in getting a truck to me in Santa Barbara. I was on a bike. The truck was not clean. Cigarette butts in the ashtray.

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.
