U-Haul Co. of West Virginia’s Environmental Fees
2011: A class-action lawsuit was filed against U-Haul Co. of West Virginia for allegedly misleadingly giving customers the option to decline paying environmental charges without disclosing that the company has already added a $1, $3, or $5 environmental charge to their rentals. Plaintiffs also claim that the company misrepresents that the environmental fees are governmental fees when they are actually used to pay for the company’s overhead expenses. (Ferrell et al v. U-Haul Co. of West Virginia, Case No. 11-C-1426, West Virginia State Court – Kanawha County)
