  • left stranded

    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. We gave him the number of this company and he said he would... More...

  • 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...

  • terrible companywith absolutely NO customer loyalty

    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. How a national company can lie to its customers and stay in business is beyond me. Ive owned the same company for 20 years,its simple say whay you mean mean... More...

  • 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. Like what the ....?? They charge a late fee and ding us the screwed over... More...

  • 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!! I will never recommend this company to anyone as we are out a mattress set and paid for insurance... More...

  • 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...

I have storage on the second floor and run a business of which I need to transport equipment on a weekly basis and the elevator has been out of service for over 6 weeks. Talked to manager and there excuse is that there waiting on parts!

  • 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...

  • Uhaul trailer with bad tires, VERY poor (none) Customer Service

    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. (I spent about $700.00 there between the trailer rental and packing supplies) The Agent in Atlanta said the other left tire had dry rot and needed to be replaced. Advised me to call the Corporate Office. I have called there six times, and have had no response. Apparently the... More...

    U-haul is very misleading with their insurance and their insurance agents are very nasty! One of their customers hit my parked vehicle, U-Haul informed their insurance that the insurance this person paid for only covers their vehicle so the customers insurance company called us and is fixing our vehicle. Three weeks after the fact U-Hauls insurance company contacted me and proceeded to tell me they are not covering my vehicle and I should not assume that anyone is covering it! Wow, I told them why are we having this conversation if they are not fixing my truck and my claim is not even... More...

  • Extremely unprofessional with hidden fees

    While planning a one-way trip back to North Carolina from Ohio we booked a uhaul and had a price given when booked online. This price was QUITE different when we actually went to pick up the trailor. The customer service was poor and they weren't sure why the original price was given and were not familiar with the online website to help the situation at all. I'm extremely unimpressed with this company and now we are unable to reserve another trailer or even shop around at other companies since we are on our way out of town and were under the impression everything was set for our...

  • UHaul has no customer Communication Skills

    I don't even know where to start.... This all started back 2 weeks ago when I needed my father to pick up a truck for me while I was at work. I was told that I couldn't use my card over the phone, which I was fine with. I was than told by a customer service rep that I could buy a 100 gift card and give that code to my father and he would be able to use that as the down-payment for the truck. He went to the location and was promptly told he would not be able to do that and who ever told him that was wrong. At this point I was not able to rent the truck that night as I could... More...

  • 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. U Haul has dragged their feet settling the claim (their typical BAD customer service). There should... More...

    I had booked a 17 ft. U-haul in the St. Albert/Edmonton, Alberta, Canada area and was assured that a truck would be available on the date stated. The day before I was to pick up the U-Haul I got a phone call (rep 1) and was told that the truck was available but it was at a U-haul place about 70 km. west of the city on hwy. 16. I was told that there was no other truck closer. Despite the inconvenience, I agreed to pick it up but only if U-haul paid for the taxi to get me there. I phoned the place, a RV sales place just outside of Fallis and was told (rep 2) that not only did they not... More...

    This location may or may not be the problem. We don't know where the disconnect has taken place since we have been on the phone for several hours with different entities at different times to address numerous issues but keep getting bounced around.

  • Credits Not applied timely but the debits are instant

    When renting a truck an estimate was done for $234. When the unit was returned the actual cost was $162. I used my debit card and it was instantly debit both time for the total of $396. I was told it may take up to 5 days for the credit to make it back to my checking account. What a bunch of crap. If an account can be instantly debited I can't imagine why it couldn't be instantly credited as well.

She took over an hour just to get my rental squared away even though I did express check in online. She made no attempt to help us when she said she didn't have a truck for us. Told us to find another location and call to see if I could transfer. I had to call 4 places to find a truck, then she changed her mind and said the truck was found. She gave us a rental with less than a 1/4 tank of gas that was hiding out of sight. Was told nothing I ordered... More...

    I tried to rent pods and moving help though the Uhaul website. It took my money and didn't give me a reservation. As I tried to talk to anyone who could help, they passed me around and stole hours of my life. When I finally got to people who could help me, all they offered was a sad $40 VIP voucher for my next time. I will never use this because this is a terrible company.

    My girlfriend and I recently made the move from the east coast to Colorado and since our car has no trailer hitch we decided to employ Uhaul's U-Box for transporting all of our possessions. In hindsight, we shouldn't have left the dogs medicine in the box as it is currently 11 days missing. The moving company that is supposed to receive the pod has confirmed that Uhaul never sent a request to have it moved from our state of origin. Currently we have no idea where it is. There is no tracking number and Uhaul has made no effort to aid us in atleast finding our box. Needless to say,... More...

    I reserved a 20' truck three weeks before my pick-up date. I called the day before to confirm (because they did a bait & switch on me last time), and they said that my truck's "brakes don't work." As there were no other 20' trucks available, I was stuck with a 14' truck. Instead of taking 1, MAYBE 2 trips, it took me 3 trips to load and unload the truck. It was a 25 mile drive, so it added several hours to move, extra gas, and extra mileage.

When we start, they put us through three days of training then put us on the phones unassisted to take calls. The whole process is a joke.
