The local location was wonderful. The main office reservation system was awful. I reserved a 26 foot truck for pick up in Ventura, CA. However, nothing larger than a 15 foot was available on my day of pick up and I had to drive to Goleta to pick up the truck meaning I had to pick it up a day early. Why did I make a reservation? I was happy with Goleta Motors. The man there went out of his way to help me and make sure I got moved and stayed late for me to return the truck.

Had a fine rental and no complaints. Was able to do all I needed to do.

Opening up at 10:00 am puts the customer about two hours behind in trying to load up and move. You need an earlier opening time. The location is a used car site. There is not enough space to operate a U-Haul dealership at this location.

Very rude, just asked for a signature and handed us the keys. No instructions or greeting.

i waited over 45 minutes on the phone to get a simple answer regarding where to drop off - if they'd take the truck and if they were open. This is totally unacceptable and your employee at U-Haul where I dropped off said this is the number one complaint. Fix it if you are serious about service. otherwise, don't bother asking what's wrong on a survy.

I cant believe your company uses this dealer. Lot/office filthy. Truck wasnt ready. Dealer not there. All locked up. Lights didnt work on transport and other location (hollister-modoc ) had to replace fuse and repair.

Really bad experience. Made my reservation online. Showed up to find no one at location, knocked on door of "building" -- no answer. Ended up calling and got the guy on the phone, he said he'd be right there. Turned out he was sitting in some truck in the next parking lot. Opened up the door to the dilapidated shack of a building that was his office, and said he'd be back. Waited 5+ minutes while he moved a vehicle around to get the pickup out I had reserved. Finally came back... Uttered maybe 10 words to me in total. Never looked me in the eye, once. Said that I "didn't need to worry about gas since I was paying mileage." What a lie, I found out. Finally got the keys to the truck, which had rainwater spilling out of the truck bed, btw, and went about my business. Returned the truck within 3 hours... Again, guy was nowhere to be found. Deposited the keys in the dropoff slot. 30 minutes later was shocked to find I had, on top of mileage and other charges, I had 3 gallons of gas charged to me. An extra $12. Per my e-receipt emailed to me. Read my contract closely and found... I was in fact responsible of gas. On top of mileage. Shame on me, for believing uhaul guy. And shame on uhaul guy for being shady. Needless to say, my "$19.95" pickup rental ended up costing me a lot, lot more. Uhaul is officially last on my list after this expensive, subpar customer experience. My $$ is MUCH better spent elsewhere.

Goleta Motors owner/operator has great customer service, he was very helpful and cordial. He had everything I needed for my move. I would recommend Goleta Motors to everyone. Juan

I wanted to rent a 5'x9' open trailer with a ramp for a one way trip. I was told that the open trailers are not rented for one way but only local and round trip, note that policy does not help me one bit. If the open trailers cannot be rented one way why did the open trailer I rented have a Virginia licence plate, according to U Haul policy that trailer should still be in the state of Virginia? Curious as to why the policy when it is not always followed? Disappointed in the answers I was given.

The particular truck i rented was old, dirty, and very difficult to drive. The tires felt as though they were not balanced properly due to the vibration around 50 m.p.h. The transmission shifted gears harshly, the inside bottom of dash fell down due to the vibration and had to clip it back up during the drive, it was dangerous. The inside was dirty and smelled really bad. Its not what type of condition i'm used to when renting a uhaul truck.

The location was too small to handle the inventory. Pick up time took 1.5 hours, way to long. I had to load my own car on to the car tailor with no instruction to do this properly. I never done this before. I had to do this off site across the street on school lot. Was not instructed to use the safety axil chains beneath the car. I would never use this location again. He could work his computer program. I would advise U-Haul to pull out of this location.

Took over an hour and a half to pick up a trailer. A lot was too small to serve more than one customer at a time. Staff wasn't very well educated. I had reserved and checked in on line, I should've been in and out in 10 minutes.

Proprietor was 1/2 late to location (10;25am) - also another couple of guys had been waiting for over 1 hour before I came for my 10 am appointment time. Both of us had thought the location was to be manned way before this time!!! I was told I would not be charged for gas as I only had to use truck for 11 miles total - yet I was charged anyway!!!The whole experience was Very Unprofessional !

A neater, claner, larger location would be nice. It is a very narrow lot, one way in and out. Full of used cars and trucks. The office is a tiny little trailer and a mess. I find it hard to belive that they have a U-Haul contract here.

When asking of price quoted 29.99/day... no mention of mileage. He mentioned (several times) he would charge me less for gas than a gas station. Yes should have read every detail of contract...so I guess let the buyer beware! Right uhaul? This entire experience has left a bad taste in my mouth...and I'm telling everyone I know about this smarmy guy renting uhauls at goleta motors

I had my reservation time at 5:00 pm, but the location was apparently supposed to only be open until 3:00 pm that day, but the owner stayed open 2 hours extra to make sure I got my uhaul truck. It was so awesome of him!

Small location. Very helpful. Much better than the other U Haul location in Goleta.

While the guy was nice and the equipment was clean and great the location is a used car lot and not able to turn around a truck, let alone one with a trailer attached. There is another location down the street where I originally reserved that has parking and drive through ability for a truck with a trailer but I was switched to the alternate location on the day of service.

The man that assisted us was hardly responsive(there may have been a slight language barrier, which is no issue). My father, wanting to help pay for the truck/dolly, offered a card that was declined. The man did not then cancel the transaction, so I was charged and extra $224.66 for the equipment. Even worse, Corporate customer service was unwilling to communicate in the proper fashion with my bank's claims reps to reverse the mischarge, and I am still without my money. I left a voice message for customer service claims two days ago enumerating the details, and still no response. I am one of the patient ones, but this is just not right. The truck was given to me with less gas than was signed for. At this point, I think I deserve to receive a total refund. The whole mishap delayed my move by at least three hours. It was a truly awful service experience.

Made a reservation for 9ft cargo van for 10am. Owner did not arrive at store until 10:15, informs me that he has no cargo vans available until 11am. Eventually we settled for a 10ft truck instead and this worked fine, but was very disappointed in the overall experience.

While the vehicle was mechanically sound, it was pretty beaten up inside the cab and out.
