I had originally set up an appointment for the state street location in santa barbara. They called me an hour before my appointment saying that another customer had not returned their truck so I would have to go to this branch in Goleta, which would be more expensive for me, but U Haul would not give me a discount to account for this. Presumably, U Haul is charging some crazy fee for this other customer's failure to return their truck on time. Why is it my responsibility to pay extra because of this? If I'm paying extra and the other person is also paying a fee, this means U haul profits twice from the inconvenience they are giving me. What the hell? How is that a fair way to treat your customers? I didn't raise a stink with the local store manager, but I find this to be a really terrible way for U haul to handle customers. I should not be held financially responsible for your errors.

There was nothing positive about this drop off. The "manager" was not at the business, once he got there- he made me wait while he re-arranged the vehicles, then he got frustrated at me because I did not back in the trailer (on a busy morning on a busy street with a lifted finally). I attempted to tell him that it was not legal to block traffic, but I didn't want to waste my time. Basically, I could not get out of here soon enough.

Very low-rent used car dealer, with shack-like sued out back. Very nice, continent drop off, good people.

I decided to give this location one more chance, as I had a bad experience last week, and the owner sent me a $50 refund, and a promise to "wow" me the next time I came back. I decided to rent a van this time around, and at first the owner's son was very helpful and quick. Before I left with the van, he told me that the van gets 15mpg, and that if I didn't put gas in the van when returning it, that they would just charge me what the gas station does. When I returned the van the next day, I chose not to add gas, based on what I was told, but the owner's son tried to charge me over $20 is gas for driving 44 miles! After some negotation, we decided to settle on $15 for gas ($5 per gallon for 3 gallon), which is still more than I would have paid, had I just put gas in myself. I was mislead by the owner's son, for just a few bucks, the same thing that the owner did the previous week. These guys are crooks! They will do whatever it takes to get a couple more bucks out of you. I will NEVER go back to them, and I will tell everyone I know to avoid using Goleta Motors for their moving needs.

Very small space, no parking for customers, had to park at Wendy's next door. Service slow. Line of people waiting for trucks. Location convenient.

This is the worst location I have ever seen. That has made me highly question the quality of U-Haul and as a result of this location I am not planning on using U-Haul again.

The employee was 30 minutes late. The seemed very disorganized, and the trucks had to be shuffled around. The employee FORCED me to pay the $10 insurance. I will be pursuing my money back.

trucks were not ready on time! I was given incorrect information regarding how we could pay for the trucks which resulted in two people having their cards charged that were not supposed to be charged and the card on file that was to be charged not charged at all. Really POOR customer service. I would not recommend this location again!

The man running the company was very nice and helpful. I will 100% go back to the same place.

I think the guy would not work with us, we rented two vans, and our boss put on his credit card but the guy made us use our credit cards, would not work with us. and I think he said it would be 10 cents a mile and he charges us $1.00 a mile. Shady guy

They were very big on customer service. I bought and rented items I wouldn't have thought I needed except they were so nice about making sure I had what I needed. Worked with me on everything . Excellent service. Ann

People were all good, efficient, thanks! Because this location opens late, at 10:00 a.m., many customers came at that same moment. Location is physically too tight to handle many customers at the same time. I'd expect pickups later in the day are simpler.

My first and chosen location refused to accept my truck and I had to drive around for half hour to find a new location. USed up gas and miles that I had to pay for! Casey's Garage in Goleta are a bunch of assholes. Never again will I rent from U-Haul.

Owner was rude and really tried pushing insurance on us by basically threatening us--saying he had a customer that same day pay him $700... He added the insurance to the total without first asking, which came up to $15, which was 75% of what the rental fee was (~$20), which made no sense money-wise. We did not opt for insurance and were fine without it.

i had reserved a van specifically but learned there was no van on arrival. the choice was then between a pickup and larger truck and we were forced to take the larger truck although we didn't want or need it.

The owner & his team were very helpful. I've used him previously and he even fixed an issued caused by another U-Haul agent where I rented a different vehicle from. I will always use this dealer when in the area.

The guy there was really slow and not very helpful when questions were asked, however once i finally got my uhaul truck the rest of the process was easy.

JOHN THOMAS M. on 6/26/2015

The guy I rented the uhaul from totally lied about how much gas was in the tank and I didn't catch it until it was too late. I returned the uhaul with more gas in the tank then when I picked it up, but not according to where he originally marked it

Emphasize looking for the Goleta Motors signage rather than U-haul. Attendant was very warn and responsive. Helped to navigate out of drive way.

The $19.95 is misleading. Add the cost per mile (I did 30 plus) at .99 per mile plus insurance ($14) and rent for the hand truck. Plus your on the hook for the gas. All together I paid over $100 for a 5 hour rental.
