On October 22, 2008 I agreed to rent a U-Haul rental truck from U-Haul Fisher Towing at the base rental rate of $29.95 plus $0.79 per mile, agreeing to refuel it to the existing level at time of rental, clean it out and return it prior to 9:00 am the following morning as they had it rented out then.

I used the truck for a total of 41.6 miles. Cleaned it out, refueled it at the Fryelands Blvd Shell at 9:47p.m. (for which I have the sales receipt) and returned the truck to Fisher Towing around 10:00pm that same night.

The next day I get a text message on my phone that my "U-Haul Rental is now overdue", when it had been returned undamaged, re-fueled, cleaned out, parked on the premises and the key put in their designated drop box the previous evening.I called several times, ,my call was neither taken nor returned. I drove there thinking the truck had been stolen and I would need to file a police report. Upon getting there I was told - "Oh we do that to everybody."

Well that was just a preview of coming attractions- instead of billing me the $69.29 this should have been, the Fishers tacked on

a $26.91 cleaning charge
a $57.50 fuel charge (for 42 miles????)
and billed my card $153.61 for what was a legitimate $69.29 transaction

My husband called and tried to talk to these people. Mrs Fisher admitted to him that the truck got 8-10 miles per gallon. When he told her we had a receipt for the gas she hung up on him. Obviously this is their typical MO and just the way they "do business".

UHAUL blames the customer before themselves

AUTHOR: Eric - (U.S.A.)

My situation is similar to yours. I returned everything as scheduled only to try to rent from them again 2 years later and told I could not rent from them because I did not return the appliance dolly on time. Allegedly, I drove to South Carolina a month later and dropped the dolly at a UHAUL center!! I live in PA! UHAUL is ridiculously incompetent with bad employees who hang up on you the second you disagree with them. Also, beware of a Maria Palmisano. She peruses the complaints and puts up a happy "i'll help you. we really do care" messages. The second there is nothing that can be done, she becomes Mrs. U-HAUL-Is-NEVER-Wrong. She posts merely to stall a sinking ship and the more people post their horror stories, the more UHAUL will sink for good. Just DONT rent from them EVER again. They are worthless.
