Gm who helped me this morning (05/28) was very rude .. I rent from u haul around the country for our 87 hotels , this location was the worst due to his attitude!

I wasted I,d be charged $4.25/ gallon if gas not back to original level - fair enough- on return they wanted to charge me an additional $30. Because level was approx. 2 gallons less -- but just below a quarter tank. No earlier mention of this. Felt like a rip off and then they handled it very poorly. Will not return to that location.

Installer was careful and precise in connecting trailer. Much appreciated; previously had damage there in a prior Uhaul experience.

Parking is tough Some customers are uncooperative, leaving their vehicles blocking the driveway much longer than appropriate

The staff could have been more rude. They did not care about customer service. They make you feel that is in inconvenience for them to help you. No smiling and remarks about customers behind their back. Both employees ( manager and assistant ) where terrible in customer service. Very sad when you do not enjoy what you are doing. The truck bed was not clean

I liked it better when the tank was always full at the time of pick up. When renting, time is of the essence and having to stop to gas up is an inconvenience. It is easier to do at the end of the rental and return it full. Thank you

We paid $12.00 to fill up a truck that was supposed to be full when we got it, we only drove it 19 miles on flat roads, total! Manager said they only get 6 to 7 miles to the gallon, right after his employee had just showed me on the screen 10~12 miles! The gage did say it was full but obviously it was not!!! I put in almost 5 gallons for 19 miles... I will not go there again...

Honestly the worst customer service interaction I've ever had in any capacity. I read all about this locations one star reviews on Yelp over the last year and they all mention the same 2 employees so I don't really know why I'm writing this review. I know your company is either too big of too apathetic to care about my interaction. Just know this, my experience at your Santa Barbara Uhaul rental location has made me never want to rent another product from your company for the rest of my life.

When I left, I noticed that the gas was lower the indicated on the sheet. She said it would be fine. When I returned, I had already pumped 2 gallons for 20 miles driven. The checker said it was low and I needed to pump 2 more! 4 Gallons for 20 miles, wtf.

The store was well organized and clean. When I walked in, I did not have a reservation because I checked online and the trailer I wanted was still available. However, when I walked in to ask about the trailer, it took way too long to figure out which trailers were available. It appeared to be the user interface of the scheduling software and not necessarily the counter staff. All said, I was able to rent the trailer and return it fairly quickly and get on with my move.

Being able to make direct trip one way instead of bring it back. The different is about 60.00 your cost 110. One way would be a lot better for party's going one way because, it makes more sense, not only for you but for the customer. Please get back with me.....Bob

I've been to this Uhaul location twice now and I find the staff to be inviting and formal. My mileage overage was explained well and taken care of promptly

Worst experience ever!! From the start I should have known this was not going to go well. Long short, rented truck from Ventura, called day before to pick up in SB, ding ding red flag. Now they did compensate for the miles to pick it up so we accommodated the inconvenience. 45 mins into our 300mile trip up north, the truck breaks down! My husband sat on the side of the road for 8 hours first waiting for roadside assistance, then a tow truck to take it to a location to have alllll our items repacked into a new truck. (Which the uninsured unlicensed "company" they sent damaged all of our wood items and washer/dryer then denied it) Meanwhile myself, sister, 2 dogs, my 2 year old and 5 month old arrive at our new house with no items to sleep on or fridge to put food in. Uhual puts us in a dirty, drug deals in the parking lot Ramada for the night while my husband drives over night 8 hours so that we have our things to move in the next day. Now a sane mind would think there would be some financial compensation for the loss of an entire work day for my husband ($300), the food expenses that accompanied not being in our home (roughly $70 for the 2 days) and a broken down truck we paid $1000 for...think again! I spent a total month getting the run around, this department, that department, the manager of the location completely Ignoring my messages, all for a rep to tell me uhh sorry nothing we can do about the movers damaging all of your wood items, you signed a waiver (like I was going to have my husband load a 26ft truck by himself :/), and ya you returned the truck on time (it was over a weekend) so there isn't grounds for a refund....seriously?! If I thought I could get any reasonable response I would continue, but it doesn't sound like I can do anything to convince them that this was not a $1000 moving experience we paid for. Absolutely shocked people can do business this way. Please take the warnings of these reviews and DO NOT rent a moving truck from here :(
