Customer service could do with a little polishing up. Even when I brought the truck back I parked it in the parking lot and was told I HAD TO GO BACK and move it to correct spot.

Fix the holding bars, came loose well my fiancé and I were fishing for luggage to pull out hit him first me second luckily neither one of us got hit hard enough to cause any major boo boos. The trailer it's self is awesome and I would love to have one for our own family to use with travel. Told super well fit luggage for four adults and three children plus junk. But something about the holding bars fitting into the pegs being that the shelves itself the top opening parts are so super heavy they become bent over usage and could cause serious injury to somebody. Could have happened to us hit my fiancé harder than me but he swears he was OK although I did drive for the next three hours after that thing on his head.

I placed my order, provided me card information to hold the reservation and it was to be transferred to the 17mile and van Duke store but it wasnt. They didn't have a reservation for me. The 13 mule store stated that my order was cancelled which I don't know who or how that would have happened but the 17 mile store did have the vehicle is wanted avaliable and had no problem assisting get me.

My truck want there so I got a truck way smaller. Then was told u would receive a $50 refund. I get the bill, no refund applied so I call the place I got the truck from. Here says very rudely that I have to call corporate to receive it because he forgot, so on top of not having my truck and having to do three extra trips, more mileage, I still haven't gotten my money back and have to take time while I'm still trying to move in to call and get my money back. I have used your company a lot and very disappointed in the way I was treated

We had to rent a cargo van just to move a large mirror my mother bought from the store to her house . . . and Backus Auto Wash was conveniently locate, staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the vehicle was so much nicer than I expected! So glad we chose to rent the van than try to fit it awkwardly into the back of one of our personal vehicles! And the cost was much lower than anywhere else I phoned to get an estimate! Would rent another vehicle from them any time! Thanks!

Owner was very rude. He slammed his computer mouse, said it was my fault the computer froze. Etc. Not customer friendly at all. Very short temper

once I paid for the trailer and need help with the wiring I was left waiting for almost an hour while the owner continued to wait on new customers of his car wash business. Additionally the trailer capacity is miss represented on the uhaul web site. I rented a 5 foot wide trailer expecting a 5 foot bed only to find out it's 51 inches. I found this out after driving almost to hours to pick up what I needed a "5 foot" trailer to fit.

I interupted their lunch. Despite the delicous sandwich waiting for the staff member I was promptly served. hahah :D They are a busy and hardworking place, with a friendly staff. Aside from being a convenient drop off location next to a gas station, I might take my car here for a detailing. Thank you!

The more straight up with your customers if you do not consider this a 24 hour rental let them know. I rented vehicle 20 minutes to closing on Saturday May 1st so I'd have the vehicle for the following morning so I may finish moving. the non pleasant man at the Uhaul asked when I'd be able to return it I said sometime around noon he asked numerous times if I can return it sooner I said no I need it to around noon should have it back before then but might have it a little longer( mainly because it had been raining on the first and the second). I also asked for an appliance dolly he said there's a dolly in the truck if you need it just cut the strap and you can use it, you only get billed for it if you cut the strap. On Sunday morning I go to open the back of the truck to find out there is not a appliance dolly but a regular utility dolly, which now made the move a little more time consuming because of the size of the appliances and oversize furniture. My son and I finish the move filled up the gas and had it returned clean at about 130pm. Before I could even get out of the vehicle the haul representative was there to take the keys (in a rude way )said my paperwork would be available tomorrow. By time I got home I had seen on my bank account that they had pulled extra money out when I was expecting some money back on my $100 deposit. I drove by and they're already closed so I called customer service they sent a email to the independent U-Haul facility to see why was I overcharged. About three hours later I got the e-bill And it showed that I was billed for two days rental and insurance. I called customer service again and file the complaint, still waiting back from Uhaul corporate in regards to my complaint and never got a call from the independent U-Haul regarding my complaint. First I personally use U-Haul an average of twice a year for the last 20 years for moving home items or my toolbox to various shops as I am a contracted machine builder/repair in the auto industry, I also use it on my corporate account for moving guys toolboxes from one shop to another last 15 years. Second I was under the assumption that the rental was good for up to 24 hours as I was told in the past it is a 24 hour rental, they just hope to get it back sooner. When I dropped it off the rude representative should have said that I was being billed for two days because I would've kept The U-Haul longer. This is the first time I had to use this particular U-Haul facility as I am new to the area and wanted to find a U-Haul facility close to home for my personal and corporate moving needs (I have always used corporate stores in the past mainly the gratiot store in Roseville north of 13 mile.) Depending on what happens with my complaint, will depend if I continue using Uhaul for my moving needs. This particular facility will never get my business again and the people at Chrysler across the way who referred me to this place I have already contacted and tol
