On May 2nd 2022, I started the process to reserve a U Pack Pod. Delivery set for 08/12/22, pick up set for 08/17/22. Delivery at destination scheduled 08/26/22. U Pack / ABF did not bring the appropriate equipment (a forklift) for drop off of a pod on 08/12/22. I provided (per clause 7 in the contract) an appropriate space for the pod -- a space to park the truck and a paved area sufficient for the pod itself. ABF/UPack refused to retrieve a forklift from the neighboring town for an additional $500 cost to them. The company did NOT offer viable alternatives. The alternatives were: 1) I could find another space for the pod to be parked (ex. permitted street parking: not feasible in the circumstance), 2) I could delay the pod arrival to Monday, 08/15/22, or 3) I could load the pod over the weekend at the moving facility (I would not have reserved a pod if I knew I'd also need to reserve a moving truck). I reluctantly opted to delay the pod's arrival to Monday, as this was the only feasible option -- including working with another company given the total lack of notice ahead of time regarding the forklift situation & time sensitive nature of the move. No discount was offered for the extreme inconvenience. I was also hung up on multiple times on 8/12/22 when trying to figure out a solution with dispatch. I was treated as a chore rather than a person in a stressful situation (because of U-Pack) trying to receive service on the reservation/guarantee that U-Pack assured me (since May!). I was also informed that the company did not assess the location prior to delivery, which is a discrepancy from typical protocol. Had this happened, perhaps the company might have thought of alternative solutions ahead of 08/12/22 and reached out to me. The pod was dropped off that Monday and picked up on Wednesday. The pick up could not be delayed or else delivery by the 26th would not be guaranteed. I was told that the company would call prior to picking up the pod; They did not. A result from the delay and lack of promised communication regarding pick up: I had no time to finish packing -- half of my belongings were left out of the pod as a direct result of the negligence of U Pack. This was totally unacceptable. The onus of problem-solving was on me and the company took no responsibility for their lack of appropriate equipment and poor customer service. I have pictures of the truck, pod, contract, furniture left out, etc. I also have written records of phone and in-person conversations with date & time marked. I have included a portion of these below. This company cost me hundred->thousands of dollars in furniture replacement with no remorse or compassion. Their guarantees are meaningless, and they made a very stressful time 100x more stressful.
User's recommendation: Do not use.

Overcharged and JESSE Refused to adjust my bill!
I have used U-Pack on more than one move across the country and as of today I can say that they have gone down hill thanks to JESSE out of the main office in Arkansas. I had moved across the country back in April and had the Lawrenceville, GA office hold my cube ever since. I was told to call the main line to get them to adjust my full monthly rate because my bill due date is tomorrow October 6th and I'm having my cube delivered this Friday, October 8th. JESSE refused to help me after I have been informed that they normally due this. So now I'm paying my full 30 day fee for a few days. BEWARE of speaking with this kid and using this company. They obviously could use losing customers!!!!!
