  • Changed "Reservation"

    I made a "reservation" over the phone 10 days in advance. Less than 24 hours before my scheduled pick-up, I got an email changing the time and place of the pick-up. When I called to complain the managers were rude and surly. They couldn't even understand why I had a problem! No one tried to help or was even nice! Needless to say, I had to change all of my plans at the last minute to get the move done because it was during a time when college kids move in and out so I had no choice. They need to look up the words"reservation" and "customer service" in... More...

  • U-Haul Guarantee is Fake

    So, this review is for U-Haul in general, but I did deal with the staff and manager at the Gardena location. I made what I believe to be a reservation by phone. I reserved and scheduled to pickup a cargo trailer at the Gardena location and gave my credit card information. A while later I get a call from U-Haul informing me that the location that I reserved and scheduled my pickup from does not have the trailer after all, even though I had also checked the availability through the online reservation and scheduling process. U-Haul informs me that the trailer is not available for that location... More...

    Left stranded on the highway for over 4 hours due to inappropriate actions by uhaul employesss My son-in law mother rented a uhaul truck to move him from Charlotte to Fayetteville NC. While moving on 12/5 through Wadesboro NC the truck had a flat tire. This was approximately 1215 and we called the numbered uhaul had specified for roadside assistance. After a discussion with a uhaul rep he said a repair truck would be headed our away within 2 hours. At 1230 we called him back and said we found another service closer in Wadesboro.

  • Uhaul's Ubox - don't recommend it if you want your property undamaged

    I rented a Ubox to move some furniture from Carrollton, Texas to Charlottesville, Virginia. I took out insurance on the U-box and contracted a mover through Uhaul's online Moving Help. When my Ubox arrived at my destination in Charlottesville, the mover which was also contracted through Uhaul advised me that the marble top on my antique dresser was cracked in half. Uhaul had me file a claim with Rep West. That's a joke, they took 60 days to get me an answer. They never update their online claim site and it takes them at least a week to reply to an email or phone call.... More...

  • If u want a headache - use UHaul

    Save yourself some trouble and do business with someone else – ANYONE but UHaul! Received a confirmation email AND phone call from UHaul the day before my scheduled reservation (which had been made 1 month in advance) informing me of the pickup location the following morning at 9am. The actual phrase used in the email was “We have a 20' Moving Van reserved for you and guaranteed tomorrow 8/29/2015 at 9:00 AM. We are located at 6410 BOUL GOUIN O”. Perfect. Get to the location the following morning – the truck is there, but the location isn’t open. No one... More...

    We rernted a uhaul truck to take my son back to college, the renting facility informed us,and showed us the contract that if no truck was available or we had to go to a different site there would be a fifty dollar credit. No truck was available, we had to go to a different site, we got half the milage per gallon stated, and when I brought this to there attention they lied and said this was not the case even though it is in writing.

  • Uhaul 79912 location

    After changing my reservation twice, to different locations (one 42 miles away in another city), different times and different days. I had to go back home without my furniture because the final (third) proposed time and date I had to be back at work. All of this trouble even though before I booked I called and verified the truck will be available. Worst of all when I inquired as to why and what happened, all they would tell me was, "I don't know what to tell you". I should have used Penske or Budget as in the past I never had issues. More...

  • Poor scheduling and Customer Service at Corporate very rude

    We scheduled several days in advance and set up a moving crew when scheduling called to let us know that we would have to pick up our truck an hour away because another client was late. Ok, let me figure this out .... they collect a late fee from the overdue customer at our expense. We were promised free kilometers to offset - for the distance out of our way only to find that we called (as we don't trust the scheduling at U-Haul) just after getting the news and no credit will be given for kilometers now.

  • leaky trailer, no lights working on trailer, poor (NO) customer service

    We picked up our trailer at Travel Store #3 in Washington, N.C. Only the left turn signal was working and the idiot told us we could drive it like that! It took us half a day to get everything working on it, which defeated the purpose of getting it at 8 a.m. Then when we arrived at our destination and unloaded it, our mattress set was soaked from rain. I called them to complain and was told I would be contacted within 72 hours and have still yet to hear from anyone, that was 9 days ago!!

  • Worst Experience Ever! Never Use Uhaul Again!

    First of all we tried to book the truck several weeks in advance, but Uhaul will not confirm anything until 2 days before you actually get the truck. So 2 days before we get the truck, they tell us we have to drive half hour to another city to pick it up because there are no trucks in our city. They say we%u2019ll get another 50km distance but we still have to pay for the extra gas to drive there and back. So we drive to get the truck and the padding we booked for the furniture and paid $15 for is not there. Spend 20 mins on the phone and on Hold with Uhaul to get our $15 taken off the bill... More...

  • Uhaul worst customer service ever

    Scheduled a 9am pickup for a 15 ft truck for an out-of-state move. When I arrived, there was ONE Uhaul truck with the flatest tire I have ever seen (possibly slashed?). Called customer service on 4 different phones & spent an hour trying to get it sorted out. Their only advice: they can provide a replacement within 24 hours. Nevermind that there are multiple Uhaul locations within 10 miles. For some reason we weren't offered an immediate replacement truck from one of those locations. I had hired paid movers and had to drive 8 hours to my new location and had already taken... More...

    Rented a 6 x 12 foot trailer from Traverse City, MI. Made it about 700 miles when one of the left tires blew. Had to leave our vehicle, due to heavy traffic and shoulder construction, and wait downhill in blistering heat. Manager in Traverse City stated they are not responsible once trailer leaves their lot.

  • Uhaul left ubox in the rain, bad customer service

    I moved using Uboxes from Uhaul. There were issues EVERY STEP of the way. The worst was that they left all 7 of my U boxes out overnight in an unsecure area without proper covering. It rained that night (a down pour) and they all got wet. I found out by accident (no manager contacted me). I spent my time and effort getting to the boxes and opening them to salvage what I could and we asked for delivery of them sooner than we would have so we could fully unpack them to mitigate the water issue.

    To start with the pod itself was much smaller than anticipated. After comparing price quotes we chose U-Haul after all, a reputable brand. The price was cheaper, but the box was smaller than competitors. I hadn%u2019t bothered to compare sizes thinking they would be comparable. Make a fair comparison when doing your research. When the pod arrived they had mistakenly noted the pick-up date to be the same as the drop off date. They made arrangements and changed it accordingly. The personnel were professional and courteous. The pick-up went off without a hitch as well. Positive is... More...

danielrol1 says: (3 years ago)
They gave us problem after we return the van that already had a dent in it in hillside queens,please find out from others represent who use it so we won't get charge thank u

hemspilot says: (3 years ago)

1ST. The truck that I picked up, got a engine light within minutes of picking it up. Called uhaul back, they said they didn't have another truck, call customer service. Called customer service, they said to call their maintenance dept. Called them, they said its ok to drive it 1,000 miles to Alabama, its probably just a oil change due.

2nd. Called another uhaul that had my other reservation for a open trailer. Customer service did tell me that I could take it out of state, but would have to bring it back to the same location. Once I called them, they advised that the one I reserved was broken. That they would try to find me another. Finally 2 hrs later, they found me one that was 45 mins from my house. I drove the uhaul down there to check the engine light. They said was just a fuel cap. They also credited me one day, for the delays.

3rd. Packed the truck and trailer and headed out. 20 mins into the drive, the open box trailer was smoking from the tires. We left the trailer on the side of the road, as I was one day behind due to the delays of getting the uhauls and I had to be at work the next day. Called uhaul to advise them it broke down.

4th While drive to Alabama, the uhual developed a large fuel leak. As fast as you could fill it, it would pour out. Crawled underneath and found a 3 inch gash in the rubber hose from filler to the tank. Knew uhaul would have to swap trucks, so I duck taped the gash and continued leak free to Alabama.

5th, Along the way, the car trailer lights stopped working, Pulled over to find the wiring harness from the trailer was melted in one spot. I spliced the wire and had to pull the cig lighter fuse to replace the trailer light fuse that had blown.

What could happen next with these uhauls ?

As I am entering Alabama, 24 hrs later, uhaul calls and says the trailer is fixed you can come pick it up. I told them I was already in Alabama, whos going to bring me my stuff? She said I don't know, I will call you back.

Each day I called and each day I got the same line, someone will call you back. Finally on the 4th day I get a call and the lady said I will have to come get my stuff, they wont bring it to me. That I had over loaded the trailer.

I advised her that I am a commercial pilot and I am very familiar with weight and balance and that NO WAY was the trailer over loaded. The lawn mower weights 1150 lbs. There's two ladders, a box, and a few other things that at the MAX weigh 1700-1800 lbs. Uhaul lists the trailer at 2000 lbs max... The trailer is certified for 3500lbs. No way was it over loaded... This is the local manager/owners way of not having to do anything about my belongings.

When I advised her, that I could take my belongings to my old job in Corpus and weight it on a large truckers scale that we use to weight the helicopters, she was very quiet. No way was the trailer over loaded.

Uhaul should be making arrangements to bring me my lawn mower. That's a $12,000 mower. I don't care if they take everything else off of the trailer... I want my lawn mower delivered to Alabama. This trip was nothing but a hassle, each item breaking being a uhaul piece of equipment.

My eldest daughter writes for Dateline NBC and my son works for Channel 10 news in Corpus Christi, which Channel 10 is well known for doing stories on local businesses who perform poorly with no customer service relations, which is exactly what I experienced this time.

I ordered a tow hitch from uhaul about a month ago and was told that it would be in about a week later. The dealer never called to say it was in yet. 3 weeks later i called them and they said that they will call and check on the order. Its been 5 weeks and no tow hitch and nobody knows anything about it. So uhaul took my money and then pushed me aside and never gave me anything in return . ill never use them again and i rent about 4 trucks at a time in a year

Called 6/26/2013 to U haul in Spring Texas off of 2920 and 45 to set up a hitch install on a vehicle. they said they would have to order the hitch and then gave me a quote of $311 and some change. Scheduled an install date of 7/3/2013. Had to call them to see if the hitch was in as they told me that they would call when it came it. When I called, they had not even ordered the hitch. Had to set another date of the 9th of July to get it installed. Still did not call me to verify the date and time. Had to call them. They said it was in. Showed up to have it installed. After it was installed, charged me over $50 more. When I challenged them, they said it was only a quote. She was very rude behind the counter. Told them that I would never do business with them again and they are slow and never keep there word. Had charged it on my CC. It showed up that night as a debit. The next morning, it was not on my account for some reason. Then it showed back up on my account on the 11th. Two days later. These people are not customer oriented what so ever. Could have done a better job with the wiring than they did.

when I returned the cargo-van I rented on 03/31/2012 my bill end was $ 46.14, same as U-haul sent me as confirmation to my e-mail by the same amount, but in the card bank statement that I used for this transaction show two charges: the first one ,on 03/22/2012 Uhaul # 001 602-263-6895 Us for $ 1.15 when I made the online reservation and the second one : on 03/31/2012 U-haul of Murray Salt Lake City Us for $ 61.04 that was when I return the cargo-van, so there is a discrepancy in my favor of $16.05
I contacted with the General manager of U-haul Center of Utah Mr John Welsh and he told me to wait until Wednesday 04/03/2012 and check again my card bank statement and if it was not made the refund would have to call U-haul to the accounting department 1-800-789-3638, everything was fine except for the discrepancy between the final due U-haul that told me and confirmed by e-mail. i'm very upset by this situation. because I need wait to be my money reimbursed

U Haul = U Get Screwed. U haul is charging me more than $400 for a piece of junk trailer they rented to me which was not sufficient to haul an empty box that was placed on it. It bowed under the weight of the U-Box, before I even loaded it and they say that I am responsible for it. Want a real joke: try calling their "emergency roadside service". They had me on hold for over an hour on a busy dangerous highway in 90 degree weather after their crappy trailer broke down. customer service horrible in every aspect. Extremely long hold time to contact anybody at U-Haul. They are nothing but a scam. Do not rent vehicles or equipment from U Haul or count on them for any service. You will get screwed!!

The customer "service", if you can call it that at 1-800-468-4285 -Uhaul Reservations is PITIFUL!! The gal on the other end of the line sounded as if she had just woken up from a COMA! I see so many BAD REVIEWS of Uhaul, it makes me wonder if anyone at UHAUL even reads these or knows about this, and if they DO, do they even CARE? I doubt it. Who ever this gal was on the other end of the line was an Extremely POOR REPRESENTATIVE of her employer. SHAME ON UHAUL

Revently I rented a truck from Uhaul - in addition to the very rough customer service they have, they printed me a wrong initial odometer millage reading in my receipt, and charged me for many more miles. My fault, infact was, trusting them and not cross checking the millage of the car with the print out - when the guy walked out and checked the truck, I assumed that he made sure of everything- but not - he deliberatly let that happen to take more of my money. SO DO NOT TRUST THE CRAPPY CUSTOMER SERVICE PERSONNELS. ALWAYS D ONT TRUST THEM, AND CHECK EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU DRIVE THE CAR OUT OF THEIR LOT. OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE HARASED AND HARSHLY TREATED BY THEM!!

Recently, I returned a trailer to the East Providence, R.I. location and detached it myself. Only as I was walking into the building was I informed that we would have to reattach it in order to check the lights. I participated in doing that, but the man who belatedly assisted me disconnected the lights roughly (I hope that he didn't mess up my wire connection, the one that I paid UHaul to install in my car, and left the trailer wire laying on the ground.

When we went inside, it was a whole different story, all about keeping me waiting while he gossiped and kissed up to the manager, whom he had complained about outdoors.

That's what the atmosphere is always like at that location. I go there only because it's convenient to my home. I'd certainly make a change if I knew of another convenient location.

Passive aggression is the order of the day there, and it's been like that for years.

I have no interest in anyone "making it better" for me and no interest in continued correspondence, which I will ignore. I'm also a little surprised at myself for being (what I hope is) an anonymous informer.

But don't let me disconnect a trailer, act badly in the lot, and then kiss up to the boss as I wait--at my expense.

At one time, the customer was "always right." I'm never right in my dealings at that place. In fact, they go out of their ay to make me "wrong."

But things on my end are always in order, and, of course, my money's good.

The U-haul regional office for Fresno, CA is horrible to customers. Not only did the rep answer the phone rudley but she was plain aggressive throughout the entire conversation. The complait concers U-haul holding a deposit for 35 days, after the bill was settled the same day of the rental in cash. The rep simply had to send a form to my back informing them we had settled and to reverse the funds, but the rep was fighting us the entire time.

The issue remain unresolved althought the rep gave her word that she would fax over the required information, after she received a fax from my bank that displays the amount on hold. Needless to say, the rep claims that she has yet to recieve the fax (sent a total of three times successfully) which means I remain in limbo. Horrible customer service.

HORRIFIC CUSTOMER SERVICE from the bottom up!!

My recommendation....DON'T EVER RENT FROM UHAUL. EXTREMELY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I think their name should be changed to U-HELL. They have a $50 'reservation guarantee' promise and never followed through. My first time renting with Uhaul will be my last time. A representative did not call to schedule the apt. with me, I have to call them to confirm. And when I called to confirm, they had inputted the wrong time in. And the day of pick up, they didn't have my truck and said that they would call me back when they have the truck. When they called me back, they said that they did have the truck at my reservation time. ??? They twisted everything around pretty much. The rep. that I spoke to was very loud and rude, and have a very bad accent by the way, so I didn't understand half the things that's coming out of his mouth. (His name is Joe by the way) When I called the Regional office, they said that they wouldn't honor the $50 reservation guarantee because I never showed up. How can you show up when you called in advance to check to see if they have your truck and they tell you that they don't have it??!!! Hello!!!! Would anyone?? You will regret renting from this location especially. I don't know about other states, but the UHaul customer here in Charlotte is horrific, even up to the Regional level. Call them and see for yourself.

(704) 596-1476

Call them and see for yourself and let me know your first impression. There's a saying, "you can tell how someone is the first 5 minutues you meet/speak to them." This is very true. Test it out for yourself. Just call and see how they answer the phone. This is exactly how they treat you. Oh, and try calling the customer service line: (1-800-468-4285), the voice recorder will take you around and around and around.
