Lack of parking is a bit of an issue, and the office is run down and not welcoming. But the business side was strong and I would use again, just would be forewarned this time.

The operator was extremely rude. He called the night before and told me that it would not be ready until 11 AM when I needed it at 9 AM. When I showed up at 10:45 he told me I would have to wait 30 minutes before he would help me. He let two people who showed up after me go before me and did not homor the 11AM time. I did not have the trailer hooked up and able to leave until 11:45 AM. I inquired about the air pressure in the tires and when they were last checked. He said don't worry about it they're fine. Instead of answering the question or checking. His overall tone was extremely rude and had no customer experience value at all. The trailer was Not maintained well and one of the wheels was tight so it did not back up properly. The Goleta motors affiliate branch has no business renting U-Haul's and representing the brand. The fact that he ignored the air pressure demonstrated that he had no interest in the safety of me and my family in our move. It would be my recommendation that his dealership license be revoked. This experience was absolutely unacceptable. When I return the trailer in San Rafael California they were extremely helpful and very disappointed that he would even rent me this trailer with a faulty rear wheel A clear violation of safety and disregard for my family's well-being. I am lucky to have made it to San Rafael in one piece. When I explained this to the operator in San Rafael they were completely apologetic for my experience and suggested I inform corporate about this so others individuals will not be put in harms way. I would appreciate a call from management acknowledging that my message has been heard and that the situation will be rectified. I look forward to hearing from you.

Process was very long. Printer down, no receipt. Did not email. This also made return a very long process.

The location gave away my reservation to another customer even though I had arranged to change my pickup time. They didn't even bother to call me before doing it.

The guy was really shady. He asked us if we wanted supplies. We said no, and then we found out that he charged us $20.25 for boxes. He also told us there was 3/4 of gas and put on the contract that there was 1/4. There was almost 3/4 when we got it. He said his system was down and he had to call corporate to finish the paperwork and then got on another phone and started whispering to someone on the phone. He was really strange and dishonest and that gives u-haul a bad name. I have always had good professional service from your company until now.

I had reserved a 1 way for $141 from Santa Barbara to Camarillo from Uhaul. I ended up with was a local truck which I had to return. I ended up paying over $170 with the gas option. Although the guy made it seem like he was trying to help me out, I really did not get what I expected. Specially since the rental of a local same location drop off truck would have been $29.99 plus milage (99 cents/mile). He also made the comments that he wasn't going to charge me for the milage back from Camarillo... but in the end I paid the almost the same amount if not more. I am very disappointed with this practice and with Uhaul for allowing this to happen.

My aunt is now using you all as of this past weekend. It's a hard location to get too because you an only turn right from state street if your heading into town otherwise you have to go around, the same with leaving. Otherwise all is good.

I want to commend the owner of this Uhaul location (Goleta Motors) for truly going above and beyond to ensure his customers are 100% satisfied. Not only was our experience at Goleta Motors positive and not only would we specifically choose this location in the future, I would recommend Uhaul to family and friends. Please forward this message to Goleta Motors and thank you for helping make our move a better experience!

This location is a second hand car dealer. There appears to be a conflict between being a car dealer and being a uhaul representative. Service was unorganized and we left feeling like a burden to the representative.

Gentleman not friendly at all. Didn't go over any details of the rental van .

The gentleman needs a new printer, the printed contract was difficult to read and find the contract # when needed.

1. Employee showed up to work half an hour late. (30 minutes after opening time) 2. None of the items I requested were ready, and I had confirmed with him the day before what I needed. 3. I then had to remind him of all the extra items to add into the truck. 4. It took him over an hour to pull the truck out of the parking lot because the lot was so small. 5.He went out of his way to ensure that we got the older beat up truck on the lot because he said we were not going to drive his truck back to his lot. He pulled the newer truck up in front of us and spent an extra 15 minutes getting it out of the way so he could pull the older tuck out from the back of the lot. 6. Furniture pads in sealed bag were soaking wet when we pulled them out. 7. Truck had less then 1/4 tank of gas, basically empty. We had to run it over to a gas station before we could even start packing. All this put us behind schedule. I have never had these problems with UHAUL in the past but this place was terrible!!

When I turned in the van, Terry could not provide me with a final amount. He left me voice mail the next day with a final price that was $40 over the quote. The van was covered in a fine layer of debris when I picked it up, but I returned it well swept out. I called back for an explanation and was told by Terry that he couldn't pull it up now and he'd have to call back. The next day I get a voice mail asking to call back. After a few days of phone tag I gave up on this horrible establishment and will never use their service again. Do not recommend.

Honestly u-haul itself is a great company but this location is grungy, disorganized, paperwork everywhere, it just looks like the guy that runs this location does not care. The guy that runs the Hollister location also has no sense of customer service. I have rented from uhaul on state and hollister and they are very organized and professional. I had originally booked a 17 ft. Truck because there are low lieing branches where I was moving but when I got there, there was only a 26 footer available, so what is the point in reserving a truck the day prior if that truck won't be available? I had to park the truck off property and unload from the road, the driveway is 1/8 of a mile long. We had to go back and forth over 30 times to unload and carry and 350 lbs. Safe. Other then that the experience was wonderful. P.s. always check your gas level.

Outstanding group of people to work with. Small location so you would be advised to reserve early so they can arrange the equipment. That said I walked in with no reservation for a trailer and drove away with one 30 minutes later.

Site is very run down, staff is unprofessional and unattentaive while they were helping me stopped to do 2-3 other things for other customers.

The attendant gruffly told me I had to fold the dozen furniture blankets before he would accept the return, then stood around while I did it. There is very little space at this location; only a single lane for both directions.
