I'm irritated, honestly. I made the reservation online, recd a call. The rep said they gave me a better rate cuz they had to change the location as the truck size wasnt available at original location. This am we take a Lyft to get to the Shaefer Rd location at 7 am as we were told its a 24 hr one. It was freezing, raining and we were stuck outside the gate with no covering. I called Uhaul n was told to go to Joy Rd as the other location forgot to leave the keys. I paid for a second Lyft to go to Joy Rd after a good 15 minute wait in the cold/rain...Got the truck and everything was fine at Joy Rd other than I dont think the price was matched from the original phone call, it was a 22 minute drive from the house to Joy Rd (another expense-more gas, more mileage fees, and a third 22 minute Lyft ride). So yes people were nice and polite, but very frustrating way to start and end the day. Id like something to be done to make sure what I was charged is what I was quoted, especially since I ended up having an extra Lyft charge and another longer Lyft charge. I swear I was quoted $29.95 for the truck and less per mile too..

Be forthcoming with the cost. I was billed $1.00 for No fault after I purchased the vehicle insurance rider. Why? Environmental Fee? Why? Also I want to know if you rent a truck in the city and use it for four hours, and return it in the same city, different station it is called a one way rental and not local.

WORKING WITH CLAIMS DEPT NOW, HOPE TO GET A RESOLUTION SOON. WE'VE RENTED UHAUL AT OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE PAST, NEVER HAD ANY ISSUES, THIS WAS VERY UNFORTUNATE..I HOPE TO UPDATE THIS REVIEW WITH A FAIR RESOLUTION SOON

I would start by ensuring the trucks rented are in good condition. The truck I rented had some mechanical problens. By the time I left the store and got on the freeway a couple of miles away, all kind of lights started flashing and a constant dinging sound continued all the way home. I couldn't go back because they were closing when I left. We were unable to fulfil the purpose of renting the truck. Then upon my return if the truck, I was charged mileage for driving it home with flashing dashboard, the tow truck driver driving to assess problem, mt husband drove it, at the request of 1 if U-haul employees, to take pictures of the flashing dashboard, and driving it back to store with flashing dashboard. That was a total of 26 mile, we had anticipated driving roughly about 100 miles to do what we needed to do. From the store to my house is a little over 9 miles one way. We rented the truck for 24 hours! How in the world do I drive 26 miles in 24 hours including the driving that was actually done!! Even when I arrived, I asked the associate if he wanted to see the lights flashing and constant dinging of the brake lights. I left the truck running, he said, no, shut it off!!

Shocks in uhaul were bad, brakes were loud. First two uhaul reservations were cancelled. I had to drive outside of a 10 mile radius to pick up avaliable truck, then had to pay milage. Reserved a furniture and appliance dolly, neither were in the truck. The employee went to get one out of the cage, I could see an appliance dolly, but the employee wouldn't rent it to me. Supposedly it had been stolen and he hadn't taken it back to where it needed to be for three weeks.. There was insects (roaches) in the back of the truck so I had to buy and spray raid before I could load my stuff. In a pinch I was able to get my stuff moved, but I feel ripped off.

I have rental several trucks from Uhaul over the years, and this is the first time that I did not receive a truck with a full tank of gas. I was instructed to return it with a full tank of gas and when I told the check out person that the tank was half full when I received the truck, he kept telling me that we do not refund for gas. This is totally unacceptable, since I was told to return it was a full tank of gas, he did not tell me to return it with a half of tank of gas. I look at my paper work and there is no where that it states that they do not refund for gas. BUT if this is a true statement then they should have offered a store coupon for 20 dollars or something. Also I rented the truck for 6 hours, I could not check out the vehicle until after the time that I requested it. So 20 minutes into my rental time was when I received the vehicle, I had movers scheduled that I paid for which then cut into their time. If I rented something for 12 noon I should receive it at 12 noon and not at 12:20.

Make the next person feel welcome. When a customer comes into the business have the common courtesy to speak back when the customer speaks and say good morning, good afternoon or evening when picking up a truck or supplies of any kind.. It doesn't cost nothing to be polite and manners?

First, let me say I don't have enough space to say how beautiful my experience was with this store. My time with them spanned over five years, through some tough times. They were always very courteous and compassionate to me. The building was always clean, and neat. In a time when my life was dark, they were light and that's no exaggeration. They always had trucks available, I rented at least 15n trucks from them, love this store and its team. God bless them and thanking God for them....real talk,

My original preferred choice location was a mile from my home. I was told the day before my move that the truck I reserved was not available. I was called by a U-Haul representative and told to go to another location in the morning. They didn't have any trucks. This location called U-Haul on my behalf and I was told two other locations, neither location had any vehicles. By this time I was two hours behind schedule due to driving to multiple locations. I then called the U-Haul location at Southfield and Joy. The manager Craig told me that he had a truck available. I almost cried. His team member reserved the truck for me and his team was very nice, helpful and respectful. They saved me and I am so grateful.

From beginning to end... my experience was horrible! Totally unprofessional and rude staff! Trucks are not cleaned or kept up at all! The van I had felt like the transmission was going out. When I walked in to pick up my van, there was no greeting walking in. Only one person working while the other is on their phone not assisting to get customers helped then when returning my van, myself along with other customers had to wait over 10 minutes before anyone even came into the desk area. Upon his return, I still waited an additional 20 minutes to close out while I had a Uber waiting! It was a lasting impression for sure and I won't be returning!

9/4 went to pick up my trailer I had accidentally reserved the wrong trailer. I went to the agent (Jafre) switch paperwork. In switching the trailer she also added Safetow. I never requested Safetow. I always decline coverage I have rented from U-Haul on 300+ occasions. She said to (manager) that trailers are to heavy she wont hook them up. On our way she doesn't mind doing the paperwork inside but hooking up the trailer is for the guys. I went over to the trailer and waited for someone to hook it up and no one did. Finally I just hooked it up myself. I told them that I had hooked it up and was leaving. Returning the trailer, Ayesha purposely sat inside a uhaul truck until I unhooked the trailer ! I noticed that the Bill indicated Safetow on there I asked why she said it's required unless I show my insurance. I said since when ? She said ask the asst MGR . He said yep . I said you guys are lieing to my face. I definitely won't return here ! Nooo customer service and BOLD FACE LIE !

Workers were borderline rude. No greeting. When I returned rental, the person took the key and walked off. I started to follow her to the truck when she turned around and rudely said I got this. You don't have to follow me. I didn't know if I had to wait or if I was all set. She got out of the truck and started walking to the store. Never said follow me. I ended walking into the store. A few minutes later she handed me a receipt. Still no word to let me know that I was all set until I asked . I will never go back to that location again. Even if they have the only truck available.
