The owner/manager/whatever was nice. No complaints specifically about him, except that he works a big slow. Picking up and dropping off took much longer than I expected. The location itself is a bit of a pit. And a total of almost $70 for a van for 2 hours is ridiculous. I'll find another way next time.

Need to Make sure that you guys check Equipment before Rental. I rent a 6×12 trailer from Kellie Goleta Motors. and the lights keep getting off every time. It was too hard for me to drive back from san Diego, to goleta ca, and when I returned this guy at this location. He was so rude. And wants me to pay for two days. When I only had used for one day. sincerely: Julio's Moving Service

To improve: Better explanation as to how charges for use of equipment are calculated. Though the total dollar amount of the charge was very close to what I had calculated based upon online literature (60 cents per mile on top of daily charges and other fees), the actual billing formula used was quite a bit different, despite coming to about the same result. We do very much appreciate the fact that we received an equipment upgrade (from the cargo van we ordered to a 10-foot truck) at no additional charge, due to availability of equipment at the time we made the pick-up. Also, we noted the agreeable and friendly demeanor of the employee who helped us with both the pick-up and drop-off transactions (same person).

This location did not have the truck I had reserved days in advance, and the staff was uncaring about the issue. Further, there was one other customer who had also been promised the same truck as I. They left without a truck. The entire experience seemed unorganized, unprofessional, and uncaring.

The service on site was friendly enough, but when I had called prior to my pick up, the guy essentially told me he was too busy to help me. I think part of that might have been a language barrier (thick accent over the phone), but it was frustrating to not really understand what was going on and to be told that I couldn't be helped right then.

Great Location. Very convenient. Kelley is great. Helped me throughout my rental process and made everything a breeze. I would definitely come back for all my future moving needs.

I was pleased that I was able to move my pickup time and received a confirmation that acknowledged the change. The truck was clean, performed well and everything arrived in perfect shape. Thanks.

My online reservation was at 10; the manager didn't show until 10:20 then spent 20 minutes moving trucks go get mine out. The dolly and covering were in the way during our move. We accidentally broke the plastic on the dolly getting our bed frame in. The manager wanted to charge us for that then said we could have asked to have those pieces removed.

One person working.. narrow driveway. cars, trucks etc. trying to get in and out. owner could not handle everyone. My wait was 45 minutes. Owner needs more help. Truck smelled like horse manure.

This location falsely promised rates to secure the rental. Then upon return of the vehicle the rep called uhaul to find out they couldn't honor the rates he promised us and that we would be charged almost $75 more then we agreed upon and signed for on our contract. We did not go over the mileage in fact we used 70 miles less and returned it with more fuel than when we picked it up with. The van was dirty and the windsheild was so dirty we had to clean it to drive. The rep had also called us to come in early then made us wait for almost an hour and a half before we received any help or greeted with a hello. When we asked him why he would not honor the agreement we had on out contract he just said sorry. And went on to helping the next customer. The gentlemen who runs this location needs to go under review. He is dishonest and provides some of the worst customer service I have ever received. He speaks under his breath making it extremely difficult to hear him and even more difficult when negociating prices. I will be contacting the better business bureau about this location and experience and will pass on the word to everyone in town this location can not be trusted.

First, I thought google maps was wrong because I drove by the place the first time, without seeing it. The worn down "shack" is in the back of used car lot where everything was dirty. I got there in time and the van I had reserved was "not available". I was offered the truck for the same price. I offered to take the smallest of the Moving vehicles that is normally 19.95 a day, however at .99. I stated politely the truck would not work and had I known that the van was not available, I would have used another Uhaul location to obtain a van. I had place the reservation 4 days earlier. I believe that this facility does not have a rental van. Going over the gas gauge, the van had only 1/4 tank of gas. I would have to go put gas in the van at the beginning of the move and at the end. This was very discouraging and inconvenient. He then asked me to have the vehicle back by 2pm. I thought I had rented all day. I did not want to ask if there was a place to park my car, since in pulling up there was only one way in and out and no place for those of us using a van or truck for a few hours to leave our cars. I had to park in a strip mall next door and pray it would not be towed. He pulled the van out and it was filthy. He told me to bring it back "clean" as he opened the back. I stated the same way? He said yes. The front windows were filthy. We rushed through our move, since it was just my daughters one bedroom apartment. We were able to be done and have van back by 2 pm. I was anxious the whole time with this rental. I even called Uhaul to make sure that this was a legitimate Uhaul provider because he had taken all my info and credit card information again, after I had entered at reservation time and early check in. This will be the only time I will ever rent from this location. I have rented Uhaul vans in Fresno quite a bit for my business and have always appreciated the integrity of Uhauls distributors. This particular location did not maintain the integrity or quality that Uhaul has worked so hard for its customers to trust and rely on. Thank you

Location cluttered with many cars, looks like it could be a used car lot on the side. Entrance and exit difficult with a trailer, especially since there was no one there to receive the trailer on a Monday at around 11AM. I have had to rent twice from this location because the other Santa Barbara location does not have 6x12 covered trailers (or at least so they told e). Both times I have been to this location there was no one there when I returned the trailer, the same was true the first time also for the pickup. I had to call and someone showed up 15 minutes later. The trailer lights did not work, however, during inspection the employee told me that they were working. I drove for several hours in the dark with no lights.

What strong professionalism practiced by Ahmed, the manager who checked me in. Not only friendly, but considerate and thorough. He was quick to provide me with any and all information I requested; had I needed the names of all individual islands on the Galapagos Archipelago, he would have probably been able to answer that too. A great person and representative for UHaul.

I reserved a few weeks in advance -then the day before the p/u, I was contacted and told I couldn't get the equipment I reserved. That subsequently resulted in me having what seemed to be an endless hassle and having to pay more money. The Goleta location was not the location where the original reservation was made.

This location received some negative comments and I was reluctant to use them, but when I got there it was just fine. No problems, helpful staff, easy processing.

The staff was very helpful in helping us load the trailer. I appreciated being able to pick up early to have more time to move.
