Uhaul Failed From Start To Finish
UBox - Complaint
MIAMI AND CHICAGO, FLORIDA -- We used Uhauls UBox system to move from Florida to Chicago. From start to finish it was a disaster. First, the boxes were not available the morning of our move, even though we reserved and confirmed weeks ahead of time. So our movers had to go way out of their way to get the boxes and had to rent two trailers to get them to us because Uhaul didn't have those either.
Next, the billing in our credit card did not match the contract price and no one could explain why.
Then, we were told our boxes had shipped and would arrive a certain day at our new apartment. Two days before our move in, Uhaul told us no, in fact our boxes would not arrive for another week. Then, the next day, someone else called to say that, actually, the boxes had arrived in Chicago and were available for our move in but that they did not have movers for us as we had been guaranteed previously.
Finally, once we arranged our own movers and went to pick up the boxes ourselves, we waited over 1.5 hours at the Uhaul store for them to actually load them onto a trailer for us. Again, no one had any explanations.
Uhaul failed us from start to finish. In the end we got our stuff the day we needed it, so in that sense the move was a success. It just wasn't smooth or organized.
