Don't lie about MILEAGE. I know for a fact I didn't travel 100 miles in 15 min. Don't cheat customers about money

The equipment that I requested (utility dolly) was not in the truck when I picked it up. If they could check the truck and make sure that it is there when a reservation is placed and picked up, it would have been an excellent experience.

The manager on duty at the time had a very bad attitude. I would prefer not to deal with him again. I've been coming to this location for many years. I've never felt this way the people working there. Maybe there's been a change in ownership. Not hood not good!!!!!

I believe the representative's name was James. However, my U-Haul experience allowed me the opportunity to breathe. When you meet a smile, with helpful suggestions to allow for an easier day, the U-Haul connection became spectacular (from pick-up to delivery). Thank you. Tia

The personnel was most helpful, courteous and informative. Very personable. I was in and out in without a hassle. It was breeze getting the truck I requested on the phone days prior. Thanks for a job well done.

First the lady on the phone recommended a truck that was way to big for my needs although I told her what was going into the truck, which cost more money upon arrival. Second when returning the truck, Uhaul worker by the name of James Broughton, basically accused me of taking a dollie out of the truck when the truck was NEVER equipped with one. He argued several times with me when I told him we did not receive, purchase to use or nor was the dollie in the truck at the time of pick. Rude associates. all the way around not a good place.

I would try to train the staff to be more considerate and not act as if a woman is stupid. One of the men working when I dropped the vehicle off was quite ignorant. I did not appreciate his attitude; especially when I was spending my money; rude! The truck I had was very smelly; nasty inside and the windshield was cracked. If I have to use this service again, I will go somewhere else. No matter how far it is.

The truck smelled REALLY BAD of cigarettes. The Windows on the inside were so full of smoke and dirt. I had to clean the entire inside of the truck before I could make my trip. This made me late on my departure by an two hours. This location was forced on me because the truck in South Lyon had an issue when j was picking it up. This also added an hour to my departure making me three hours late.

James has a bad attitude very disrespectful and when he told me he was the manager I was appalled. I would never refer a pig to go rent anything from that place. Devaugh and Micheal calmedemail down they were the only ones that appreciated my service. I watched people cuss James out while I was waiting to get my reservation and he was very rude and disrespectful and told us the customers if we didn't like it there were plenty other u haul places to rent from. Never ever would I ever rent from that dump again.

Well for starters retrain your associates on customer service. They are very rude with. Its never enough of them there which just makes the customer service even more sucky.

I rented a van on Joy/Southfield Rd. I returned the van one day early, a VERY RUDE and DISTRSPECTFUL make by he name James Broughton was HORRIBLE! I told him I was returning the van early he stated to me "what do u want me to do with those keys"? When I got into the office to pay he stated it was already paid for because he took it upon his self to pay the balance from my credit card and I asked him who gave him permission to do such and he stated he assumed since I paid by card to pick it up I was gonna pay by the same card. I told him he has some damn nerves to assume I was using the same card. I asked for the manager he stated he was the manager. I told his disrespectful self " someone had to hire him and he does have a boss". He told me "Cuz don't make me come outta this suit on ya ass".. Meaning come out of his uniform to fight with me ( A woman). Where is the RESPECT FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE??Another young woman was in there trying to reach the manager in him as well before I got there stating he was nasty, rude and disrespectful to her as well. I called the manager Anthony Bundy who stated not to fall the president on James disrespectful behind that he will take care of it and call me Monday morning. I called the President David Ruff and left a voicemail and no one called me back yet. Tomorrow I will follow up with both the Manager and President but I WILL DEFINITELY CALL THE BBBon this particular location. He does NOT belong in customer service disrespecting customers/women as he does. I have rented from Uhaul several times lately but Will NEVER return there if something with James Broughton is not handled. I would appreciate a call back from someone reading this matter. He need to be off for awhile with NO PAY to appreciate a JOB.
