Defaulted on U-Haul Truck Rental Contract

Thanks for submitting your debt collection question on our Q&A page. .

No, the U-Haul Truck company cannot take your social security disability payments from you as a means of collecting the debt you owe to it. It's not legally entitled to take that money. However, it can turn your debt over to a collection agency.

If the U-Haul company has threatened to take your disability payments you should get in touch with a consumer law attorney in your area with experience in debt collection cases. Find out how to get FREE or low cost legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney here. When creditors or debt collectors threaten to take an action against you that they are not legally entitled to take, they have violated the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. So, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the U-Haul Company.

Please share what happens with your situation in the comments section for this question. We are very interested in hearing how this turns out for you, and your experience can help others who are struggling with debt collectors.
