Very helpful and accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy the whole process, including pick up and drop off worked out. If we ever have to move again (understanding that we hope we NEVER have to do this again) UHaul is the way to go.

Drop off here was because of a cellphone call diverting me from the location that was much closer to my final destination. The manager was helpful, but it is a very small yard at the back of a used car lot. Diverting locations should do pickup at the final destination or ferry the vehicles to the new, further away location.

Operator showed up 15 minutes post my guaranteed time. Regional manager had dropped off truck in the meantime and told me to get my $50 refund but owner REFUSED saying he was only 15 minutes late. That 15 minutes our me over in picking up my son from school. I want my $50

The Owner was rude and unorganized. He put that there was more gas in the truck than there really was and made me sign that it was clean when the cab was a total mess. When I went back to tell him the contract wasn't accurate he couldn't find the contract that he just made me sign...it was on the back of the customer's paperwork that he was working on after me!!! All my personal info in the next customers hands! I told his son that this was unacceptable and the son said, "He's just a cranky 52 year old man". When I mentioned how rude he is and that he wouldn't put accurate info on my contract he said that in the computer if you put the fuel gage in-between it jumps to the higher mark like there is more gas than there really is. I mentioned the dirty cab and the huge scrape marks along the side of the truck. He said "oh this is just our local truck it's fine." I said I don't want to be held responsible for all those dents and scratches...where's the form that we document that they were already there. They don't have one! Ugh...You need to audit this place. What a mess...unorganized dirty, rude, poor experience. I dropped the keys off in the drop box after 2 1/2 hours, filled with the gas gage where it was when I received it and haven't received my invoice yet to confirm what I was charged. This establishment need help!

The guy who set up my trailer was very rude and not prepared for my arrival. My truck was supposed to be ready with the trailer at 2pm, I wasn't able to leave until 2:30 because of his relaxed pace with getting my vehicle hooked up to the trailer. Then when I asked about motorcycle ties, he attempted to sell me trailer latches only to barrow at a ridiculous cost. From my experience through this guy, I will look elsewhere for a company that has some regard for customer service and satisfaction.

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.

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
