    Rental company U-Haul has reportedly cut ties with the Brooklyn
    funeral home caught storing dozens of bodies inside their
    unrefrigerated trucks.

    Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Services in Flatlands is no longer
    welcome to rent from the company, U-Haul sources told TMZ.

    The U-Haul trucks used by the funeral home to hold corpses are
    also being decommissioned so they can be deep cleaned, according
    to the report.

    “This is a wrongful, egregious and inhumane use of our
    equipment,” company bigs told the outlet.

    “Our trucks are designed for household moves,” the sources said.
    “Properly caring for the remains of people’s loved ones requires
    vehicles suited specifically for that purpose. Our trucks
    absolutely cannot be rented for this reason.”

    The ghastly use of the trucks was uncovered Wednesday when
    workers at a nearby business alerted police of a foul smell
    coming from the truck, sources have said.

    “It was bad,” said an employee of the Dollar General store next

    “Disgusting,” a neighbor had said while watching a worker sweep
    a clear liquid out the rear doors of a U-Haul truck parked on
    Avenue M.

    Dr. Howard Zucker, the state’s health commissioner, said
    Thursday the funeral faced possible “fines and suspensions,” and
    vowed that “we’ll enforce this as much as possible.”

    “We have issued guidance out to all funeral homes that we will
    not tolerate any of that kind of behavior,” Zucker said during
    Gov. Cuomo’s daily coronavirus briefing in Albany.
