How Do I Cancel My U-Haul Rentals?

What Happens If I Don’t Pay for My U-Haul Storage Unit?
If you regularly miss your U-Haul self-storage unit payments, this could result in you being locked out eventually. This will result in U-Haul locking up your unit and auctioning off the contents to try to make up for your missed payments.
This is only a last resort, however, as U-Haul will try to contact you long before that. If you simply cannot afford it, you should cancel your storage unit and work out a plan to pay off the debt.
U-Haul is very good at working with customers to help them pay back the money that they owe to U-Haul. Auctioning off your items will only be a last resort if you refuse to pay.
