They put a block on my account for 10.95 which I was not even notified of after I had checked out. A month later I needed another small truck and made reservations still no one advised me of the block. I can tell you why... it's because the person who had check me out after I left had messed up and tried to clear they ass they placing a promose note on my account(which I never singed) and never informed me of. The lady who check me out today was rude and talking on the phone while dealing with the customer and she still tired to over charge me $30.00 . When I asked for corporate number to report they ass the rude attended act like she didn't want to give it to me.... That is ok because I got it and will be reporting they butts. Stay away from these damn crooks??



I didn’t agree with the measuring of gas levels. I put the needle to where it was but the staff person (a different one from the one who marked the paper)said it wasn't. So both the staff and customer should view gas together before leaving and mark with something so it can be agreed upon. I was charged extra for gas and I didn’t agree but had no choice so I felt fleeced and cheated. It affected how I view the company's morality. It was good other than that.

This the worst u haul location i ever seen... every thing is went well until I dropped off the truck today on time with same gas amount.. then the guy how received the truck form me asked me for 6 $ fee for using the cart inside the truck which I didn't even touch ... then he get angry because I refuse to give him anything... when I return to home I received an email from uhaul they charged more mile and more than 8 $$ ... this is insane... it's really not about the money... but they should respect ther customers...very bad experience

paul r. on


Only problem I had was I didn't get the exact price when I called in the Reservation

getting up to move your personal vehicle while 6-7 customers are in line waiting for service isn’t offering great customer service. The older gentleman that usually runs the counter is much more proffesional.



I made a reservation over the phone. I was told to come at pick the truck up. I went there with in 10 mns. When i got there , i was told my resevation was not for 5 more hrs and they did not have the truck size i needed. That was very unfair to me as i had wasted my time coming up to pick up truck that was not their. Then i was offered the smallest truck they had. This was some bullshit!!!!!! I had to take truck and make more trips which costed more money!!!! Their a scam!!!!






Make sure mileage is accurate.[5



Customer service rep was very helpful.

I felt very uncomfortable because there were so many people in the building ( non costumers) standing around, next I’m told there was a quarter tank , I get in and drive a couple blocks.. gas low fuel came on so I had to go back to get that handled, next problem I go to return the van.. the lady tells me I drove 80 miles when I’m fact it was like 30, I navigated so I know.. plus I took a picture of mileage before pulling of, I never thought nor was told to check on the paper before I left with van. She took some miles off luckily I took the dang picture but I still paid for 46 mike and didn’t drive that far... I would not recommend this location or any other

My experience at the Michigan & Middlebelt location in Detroit, MI was unpleasant. I was put in a category, and was told you all just try to beat the system. I will never visit that locate, nor refer anyone to it!

The gentleman who runs this Uhaul is friendly and professional. Thanks for the great service!

Why make us pay to fill the gas BK up before we bring uhaul then charge us damn near a dollar for each Mile we use makes no sense.



The truck that was reserved was not available at the time of pick up and no other trucks were available. I was headed out of town and needed to move just a washer and dryer before I left. This caused me to become very agitated and upset. The rep that I spoke to that day, Ashley, was very understanding and accommodating. I was able to get something off of the lot that was bigger but for the same price as the one I reserved due to another customers cancellation. I left feeling whole and satisfied. The return day was a little more challenging. It seems as if the manager, Anthony was not pleased about Ashley's decision. Don't know is he is having a bad day but I thank Ashley for her excellent customer service skills and the empathy she showed. I was ready to eliminate U-Haul as an option but thanks to Ashley, I will remain a customer.



The service was great



Customer service was excellent, friendly and well knowledgeable about the job in what I needed for my moving experience.
