Best location in town. Easy to pick up and drop off, and always honest. You never get the feeling they are going to try to charge you for a ding to the truck that someone else did.

The gas gage was 1/4 tank when I left. The form said 1/2. I called from the road and took a picture. I complained when I returned and they adjusted, so I'm ok. But someone should worry where is gas is going.

I purchased something in the shop and realized it was the wrong item. I was disappointed that the store would not let me return the item and get another one. They said that since I opened the item they couldn't restock or they would be liable. People return opened items all the time. I was disappointed that the store rep. did not go out of their way to be more accommodating. The sales clerk, Samantha, was very helpful. The other older male gentleman was not.

Service was friendly and responsive for all interactions, by phone or in person. Reservation was ready on time. Moving supplies were very handy and well-stocked. Rental fees seem a little high. Love the socially responsible tree-planting program through the Conservation Fund!

Difficulty to get through the phone system. I called 6 times before someone answered the phone. Other than that, good experience

I was told by the girl at the desk to check/verify the milage upon entering the vehicle/van/ I could not because the tire inflation light was on(they should not have rented a defective /dangerous vehicle(. My son went back in the shop and called the girl out to inform her. She pressed a button on the dash and the milage becamevisable, but was not correct. she changed and initiled the milage on my contract copy and said they would change/adjust it upon return of the vehicle---they did not and overcharged me. I rented the van for 24 hrs. i returned the van to the hollister and modoc wite in Santa Barbara around aprox. 7:10 PM. that same nite. I intended to come back before my drop-off time at 11:00 am and return the keys. The vehicle was returned early because my son that drives had to be at work, so I had to return the van early. I was not informed anything abkout where to return the van, nor anything about any procedure as to where or anything about any drop box for keys, etc. The next morning, I believe mon 1/11/16 I was in the shower and my daughter came in to inform me that the uhaul manager Abel had called and stated that he needed the keys right now, and if I did not comply he would charge me an extra $50.00. She came in my bathroom to inform me. I knew I had to be there befor 11:00 am but it was around 830 Am. right then. I felt that this rude idiot threatened me, and I resenteed it. Oh and by the way, ABEL!!! U R AN ASSHOLE, JUST LIKE I STATED BEFORE I HUNG UP!!! THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!!! U R IN THE WRONG ,NOT ME AND U R A PISS POOR MANAGER, VERY RUDE AND SHOULD BE FIRED!! There were no signs at the front door in regard to return procedure. Not only did the girl who rented me the van, not explain what I initiled on the contract(whick wording was so small and so much of it u could not read it)-she just said to initial it thatit didnt say anything important. This chick did not explain return procedure in any form at all. I did not see any signs -like ASSHOLE ABLE SAID. i TOLD HIM HE WAS RIGHT, AND i WAS RIGHT-IT WAS A MEXICN STAND-OFF AND WE SHOULD AGREE TO DISAGREE. tHAT PISSED HIM OFF HE WAS RUDE AND INCORRIGIBLE-NOTHING BUT A HORRIBLE BAD EXPERIENCE AND i WILL GO ELSEWHERE AND NEVER RENT FROM U ASSHOLES AGAIN. i WILL, HOWEVER TELL EVERYONE THAT U RIPPED ME OFF AND OVERCHARGED ME FOR MILEAGE AND DID NOT HONOR THE INITIALED CONTRACT BY UR EMPLOYEE-THE CHICK, ABEL-U THREATENED TO CHARGE ME 50.00 BECAUSE U SAID I DID NOT COMPLY WITH UR REURN SIGNS-THAT i EXPLAINED I DIED NOT SEE. U WERE AND ARE AN ARGUMENTATIVE PRICK, LOUSY MANAGER AND DEFINITELY NEED MANAGEMENT CLASSES AND LEARN HOW TO DEAL WITH THE PUBLIC. #1 LESSON-THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!! U HAVE A REAL CHIP ON UR SHOULDER AND U GIVE UHAUL INCORPORATED A BAD NAME!!! i ASKED MY SON AFTER HE GOT OFF WORK THAT NIGHT IF HE SAW THE SIGNS THAT U STATED HE "DID SEE" AND HE STATED "HE DID NOT SEE ANY SIGNS." mIND U HE WORKS FOR ATTORNEYS AND IS IN-PROCESS STUDYING TO BE ONE SO HE WO

We found personal keys and a UPS hand-held computer left in the truck. We tried to get the Belmont facility to track who lost the keys and computer, but were met with less than an enthusiastic response. We also notified Santa Barbara that the items were in the truck cab. If someone is very lucky an employee will make an extra effort to find the rightful owners. I am not hopeful that an effort will be made.

First of all, the truck was rented from a location in Coram, NY, not California. I was very happy with the service. Only thing you can change is to ask your employees to keep company business to themselves. Customers do not need to hear about any internal issues via hearsay.
