Ventura had no 15'. Call center had to be argued with for them to look for a 15' truck. She said there was none within 100 miles. This was not trus a Santa Barbara was much less. The scheduler seemed to have a do the minimum work possible. Had to drive from Ventura to Santa Barbara to pickup truck.

They did not have the furniture pads or dolly I paid for and reserved leaving me & my move in a bind. Additionally, their computers were “having issues” so they could not sell items from inside their facility. It was a mess of epic proportions on their level.

My written agreement when I booked a 10' truck said that the pick-up location would be Anacapa Street (Santa Barbara). When I got there the 10' truck was NOT there. The man at the Anacapa site made a call and I spoke to a "corporate" person who said my truck was at the San Marcos Storage site. I was NOT pleased and the person on the phone suggested that the truck was always planned to be available to me at the SMS site, even though I expressly made arrangements to have "pick-up" at the Anacapa site and that is precisely what my paper showed. This is a sloppy way to run a business. But the San Marcos site and the people who work there were excellent.

They did not record my returning of the trailer into the Uhaul system and I received a call asking where the trailer was. Guys were there and acknowledged the return, but did not close out the rental.

This was the smoothest, easiest rental I have ever had with a UHaul vehicle. The staff was amazing - supportive and helpful - bravo!!

It is next to a different U-Haul location and it is very confusing to find. The staff was extremely helpful but I still had a hard time finding it and had to back a 20' truck out of a long narrow drive onto a major thoroughfare

I wrote an exemplary review on Yelp. Danny and the crew went above and beyond to help us out and we couldn't be more satisfied, which I can't say for other uhaul places. Thank you guys for making a challenging situation easy!

Rented two different trucks in 3 days. Both were clean, well-maintained, and ready to go when I arrived. The online reservation process is easy and efficient. Most importantly, the reps at the site are friendly and accommodating. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

The drop off was after hours so we didn't have any contact with the staff. The drop off yard was pretty full and very small - glad we had a small truck!

Daniel was so helpful at San Marcos. He stayed after hours to check me in as I drove from out-of-state. He was beyond helpful in getting the trailer off the truck and helping me into a storage unit when the facility was closed. They go above and beyond. I highly recommend San Marcos Storage!

The windshield should be a little cleaner at the outset it's nerve-wracking just the drive itself. Should also warn customers it's tricky to leave your car all day there. Daniel was VERY nice though.

The rental experience was fabulous. The staff was helpful and pleasant. There was one issue though, when I reviewed the emailed receipt It looks like I was undercharged for mileage. I think the actual mileage was around 200 miles, not 35 miles as noted on the receipt. Can you address this?

Just days before my reservation the truck length I was going to get kept changing, 3 times to be exact. For customers who are making plans based on truck size this just not right.

The facility was next to an actual U-Haul dealer and it was a little confusing based on the entry/exit set up. The actual office was next door. A little better signage would really help.

I had the ball from my truck hitch which was not adequate for my car. Both employees tried to make it work. They advised I go to the u haul place a few blocks away who does hitches. The second place was also helpful and were able to help me have a safe trip. Both locations were very helpful.

This was the friendliest Uhaul location we have rented from in Santa Barbara. They were still there after hours and came out to meet us as we dropped off the truck at around 8:30 at night. Will only rent from this location going forward! Thanks.

I requested a pick-up at a location 1 hour away and was told of the change in location the day before pick-up. This resulted in two additional hours of driving to our move. Your website should not allow reservations if locations and times are not available.

we did the after hours drop off. only problem was trying to detach the trailer from the hitch, but the night person came to help us. everything was very convenient. I would only suggest a way for customers to reach a locations office directly - not go to the automated system - that is not answered. overall a good experience and I would use u-haul again.

Be on time! I contracted for picking up my rental at 9am. I got there at 9:10am. I had to wait until 9:30am for the rental manager to show up, putting me instantly behind schedule for moving my son out of his apartment. Inexcusable.

I called this location 4 times throughout the day starting at 11am and no one ever answered. I left a voicemail as well and never heard back. When I arrived no one was at the location despite the fact that it was within their operating hours. I needed assistance with my drop off and unfortunately could not receive any.
