The family that runs this business is awesome. Professional, courteous, and reliable. I would recommend them to anyone and will use them again. They took the stress out of our move day . Use these guys on hollister. You'll be glad you did!

The truck had cigarette butts left in the console. I didn't realize it until I started sneezing uncontrollably from the smell. Other parts of the truck were clean. However, the cigarette butts in the truck was really an issue.

I would only recommend it because it is the only spot in Goleta to get a uhaul truck. It is very small, one way in and one way out - smallest I've ever seen. The kids who helped me were very nice but the man who ran the shop was not very personable - on the phone giving attitude to someone while telling me I needed to fold the blankets. When I asked, "arent you going to wash them anyways" he just ignored me even though I asked twice. Then when my friend who was helping said, "You want us to fold them." he finally said, "yes." then continued to ignore us. I've rented uhauls probably 6 times in the last 10 years and never been asked to fold the blankets because I figure they get washed and folded. This makes me think the blankers I used were dirty and who knows what my stuff and hands were touching all day long.

Everything was fine with the truck. Clean and in good shape. People at this location were very nice. I ended up needing the truck for an additional 2.5 hours and got charged for an entire day. Not a huge deal but it seems a bit much to be charged for 24 hours extra when in reality it was only 2.5 hours.

I had a pleasant experience and the gentleman who attended to our needs was efficient. I would definitely return to this destination for future Uhaul rentals.

Goleta operator sent me to the wrong location for return, dispatch is my hero but it sure pissed of the local operators on DeSoto.

I would like to understand how the pricing works.You can go one day to rent and the price per mile is 25.a mile return the next week and it be a total difference in price like 59.a mile.Or rent a truck from SB.For one price the next week rent again for a 100$ difference. This is like going to you favorite store buying a loaf of bread for 2.50 returning the next day to find the price is now 5.00..would you go back?

The employee was late. There was also just one employee so he was running around like crazy. His hours were awful to begin with he did not open till 10. He was there at 10:15 and then proceed to get ready for the day which took 20 minutes. Getting ready for the day means moving trucks around cleaning so on. By the time he started helping people the line was 4 people deep was quite long. I had been waiting since 10 I did not leave in till after 11:20 which really ruined my timeline for moving.

I rented a 14-foot truck. It was just perfect: held everything with a bit of room to spare, easy to drive, comfortable, and rode like a Cadillac.

You guys SUCK. Made reservation over the phone for a truck and trailer to be ready at the hollister location in santa barbara they comfirmed it was there and would be ready the next day. I arrived tyne vehicle and trailer was not even there. I got no call to tell me this. Then i got sent to the 5720 hollister haul and luckily he had one. Over all I will never rent from u haul again. EVER!

advertise the right price including cleaning and liability, that is the final price I actually paid (~60$), instead of just the 19.95 $ of the rate.

This is by far the worst experience I have ever had with a UHaul location. I ordered a one way, the guy called an confirmed the day before, I get there and he tries to tell me I need to return it to HIM because he doesn't have any one-way trucks. I tell him I am unable to do that and he gets very angry and tells me he'll give me a truck but proceeds to give me a guilt trip for him having to go the 40 miles to pick it up. This is the second time he had done this to me. I had a rental for 2 weeks prior to this date but ended up with the flu. That instance he told me over the phone in the confirmation call that he couldn't rent me a one way and tried to get me to drive it all the way back. The whole reason for a one way was to avoid the mileage and because I don't have transportation back. Anyway, the owner was rude, pushy and tries to take advantage of people. Warning to anyone renting from him. Also, he'll try to have you sign for existing damage, fuel and mileage without inspecting yourself. Private dealer, not a professional place.

NO ONE is trained on policy, how a different location needs to be confirmed for various availabilities rather than assuming and mis entering where truck is to be dropped off. Goleta reserved a free storage @ San Diego/Midway Dr that never was available (no confirming?), Midway arranged for a different drop off and storage but made them at 2 seperate locations when we were told drop off and storage was at same place. This cost us in time and gas money that we topped off twice to get the truck delivered with the required amount needed. No one had authority to assist us with anything or seemed to know how this issue could be brought to the company's attention.Terrible way to run a company. Next college kids move may need to be thru Penske.

Inform on gas pricing/gallon, so the customer can make an informed decision on whether to fill at the gas station or upon drop-off.

Dirty and disorganized office. Even though i did pre-check in, everything needed to be re-entered.

The documented return date was incorrect although the rental rate was correct for the longer period.

The "shack" was a horrible place to pick up a truck. Dirty and unorganized. However, the attendant was WONDERFUL, helpful, courteous, friendly and "almost" made up for the shamble of an office. But I was uncomfortable standing there waiting....yucko.

Owner is an asshole and tried to cancel my reservation. Poor attitude. Cant speak english. Should not be representing uhaul as a company.

This is the third time I've rented a truck from this location. Never had a problem. The trucks are in good working order and the on-line registration helps at time of check in. It would be nice, however, if they opened a little earlier. Ten o'clock is a little late in the day to start when you have a full day of moving in front of you. Even one hour move up would help. This is especially true when the UCSB student population is moving in an out. Otherwise, no problems and I do recommend this business.
