I wrote in before and said that I had a problem with the representative I spoke with on the phone. I never received a call back from a customer service manager. Not the manager of the store, my problem was not with the store it was with customer service.

I live in West Bloomfield, michigan and I picked up a Uhaul over this past weekend 6/28/2015 to make a Quick move just a half mile away. I was inconveniently sent to pick up a truck all the way in Detroit michigan 20-25 miles away from where I live. An I thought it was unfair for me to have to pay a mileage charge because Uhaul didn't have a truck for me a neither of the three locations that are closest to where I live (west bloomfield michigan). So I was charged for mileage after traveling 20-25 miles away to pick up a truck. I was told someone would do something to help me but the location pretty much told me I was SOL

I was overcharged for a 15" truck. I called and waited on hold several times just to get the run arounds about my refund. I don't care if its only a dime, y'all messed up and I am due my money. Don't worry I'll be calling again tomorrow to make sure I get my money. The clerk didn't know what he was doing and the manager was rude. Very disappointed!

The location and the management are fine but the space itself is kind of cramped. You can't do anything about that.

Slow service. Did not seem to know how to use computer well. Forgot to give me dolly, called to inform me of the mistake, and I asked them to take it off my rental and I'd be fine without. They never took it off my rental. Overheard conversation of another customer who just turned in the truck I was taking that it had a hole in the roof. They said there was no way he would miss it and he should pay for it, which is ridiculous because it's on the roof. How should he be able to see that?

the gas tank was at 3/4 when pixk-up. tried to return the truck with 3/4, however, the needle would not register until the tank was filled. I return the truck with a full tank of gas. The manage would not give me do any thing to correct the problem. I was given a truck with a defected gas tank. You jest took my money

Really black area, dude told me I didn't have the right adapter then I plugged it in because it was the correct one and he tried to sell me the same thing. Probably treating me like I didn't know anything because I'm white and south of 7 mile road

It took over 25 minutes to get paperwork and checked out. There was no line or other customers. Things were moving as slow as molasses. Will never rent from this location again!

Worst experience I ever had it was a nightmare especially the manager. Of the West 8 mile store in Southfield. I was left without a truck after mine broke down for almost 2 days. Only a lady named Monica from roadside assistance really helped me.No one else seem to know what they were doing. If I had to get a truck I would use only Telegraph/6 mile rd /Grand River store In Detroit. I wish I had never went there or stored my things there.Only to get my things out will be the only time I'll go back. What a horrible manager.

Today, on May 3, 2015, I picked up a truck around 10:00 am and dropped it off around 4:45. At both times, there was only one employee working. Thus, it took an extremely long time, from waiting in line, to do these routine tasks. I will note that the two young men who were working alone (and do everything) were very police and professional, even though it seems as though they were left to do the jobs of multiple people. As it relates to the vehicle, it did not start right away and would only start when you press the gas pedal while turning the ignition. Also, the gas meter moves while you are driving back and forth, it was broken, making it difficult to measure how much gas you used. Lastly, the ramp was broken and would not roll back into the truck. Instead, it had to be placed into the truck (it was like this when I got the vehicle). I understand that this truck is older (approx 180,000 miles), but I feel that I should not have to pay the same rate for this truck, with several things wrong with it, as one with nothing wrong. In sum, I feel like I was given a broken item even though I paid full price.

The initial truck I rented had an electrical issue which caused me to have to reschedule my move they discounted the cost of the initial rental and I was told if I returned to rent again I would recieve a $50 discount so I rented again the following weekend. Needless to say they would not honor the offer and the service was horrible on top of the fact that they blocked my car in their lot. I will never return to U Haul again and would not suggest anyone else go, or at least not the Telegraph and Grand River location!! Sincerely, One Pissed Off Customer!!
