my husband and I previously rented furniture from aarons rental company twice the first furniture we brought with thought to be infested with fleas. it turned out to be bed bugs. so we spent it back we got treated for bed bugs.. and we were bed bug free for 3 months. we brought more furniture from aarons. and now we have them again. the manager does not want to own up to the fact that aaron has a bed bug a problem. so now I'm going to sue.

I have also recently purchased furniture from Aaron's. The furniture is infested and they sent an Orkin rep out to do an inspection, the rep said he found no activity. So I had the terminex exterminator contracted through our apartment building to come out to perform another inspection. He said he wouldn't even sleep in our apartment it's so infested. Don't trust Aaron's not the Orkin reps they stand behind. I'm in a lawsuit for my life!

I get the frustration. You are inconvienenced and you didnt ask for bugs. If the company is agreeing to take care of the issue and compensate for out of pocket expenses and such. I dont get why the 1stfrustration words are lawsuite. Unless you are the type of looking for a pay day. Bedbugs are here and are not going away until "we the people" start taking responsibility to help stop it. It is becoming an epidemic. When classrooms are being treated for this problem it goes to show that people are responsible for not taking care of the problem to begin with

It could be from any one of the 2100 store across the country. I have actually seen mattress and box springs come back in the warehose from a house so filthy a dog couldn't live there and be shipped out the next day to another customer. No cleaning of any kind performed.

Aaron's policy is that it should be cleaned and inspected before it leaves the truck BUT when these Sales / General managers are put under so much pressure to lease lease lease by a lazy ass regional manager, all procedures are off the table.

That's what I saw and I quit. It was the worst job I ever had in my entire life ! PERIOD !

I got a living room set and my sons bed from there and found out that we had bed bugs about a month later because we could not figure out what was biting my husband. We tried to have aarons come get it and they said they couldnt take it because of the bugs. Just recently they have been harrasing us to pay them and said that if we dont pay it will be like i stole it! I need help getting out of this because im not paying for something i tried to give back because of their bugs! Help please!

I have the same problem. I rented a living room set form Aarons and was dissatisfied with the service they provide so I has them come pickup everything. They took the television and stand but left the furniture and tables outside stating it was infested with bed bugs. I have never had them in my life and did not know what they were. The driver showed them to me on the couch. Aarons is stating I am responsible for the furniture and trying to get me to pay. I have the furniture in a storage locker because i am not putting infested furniture in my home. From everything I have read is sounds like Aarons has a bed bug problem and they should be responsible for dealing with the infested furniture and should pay for exterminating my home. $700 is the best price I have found to take care of bed bugs total of 6 treatments. I am so pissed off. Aarons wont' do anything except harass me to make a payment.

What kind of people rent and/or buy furniture from a place that has low class customers? You get what you pay for. Go ahead with your lawsuits - you'll get next to nothing. Ingorance breeds stupidity and obviously bedbugs.

I worked for a aarons company and trust me they do have bed bugs and sell and deliver the product to your homes. The reasoning behind it is when they return a product that product has a certain value on it so even if it seen by a represenative to have bed bugs not reselling it can make almost everyone in the store loose out in bonus. So sometimes money can over power even the most kind people in the word terrible way they run there company

Omg.. What an ordeal I got my bedroom set less than 6 hours ago and my husband said he felt something on his head... We turn on the light and there it was a bed bug.... Ughhhhhhhh! It's now 3am and the mattress is outside of our apartment. This should be illegal.
