The Bad

  • Undisclosed Prices 
  • Additional Fees 

Undisclosed Prices

Unfortunately Penske does not disclose prices on trucks, moving supplies and labor. You can request a free quote on their website by providing your contact information and details about your move. Prices on the moving boxes, towing equipment, moving labor and other resources is not disclosed as well. Knowing the prices that might cost you to move is a simple way to reduce stress and compare moving services near you.

Additional Fees

To cancel your reservation with Penske or add additional days to your move might cost you some extra fees. You can cancel your reservation up to 48 hours prior to your pickup date for no additional charge. If you cancel within 48 hours of your pickup date, there is a $100 cancellation fee. If you add days prior to your pickup date, your additional days would be $50 each, and if you add days after you pick up the truck, your additional days would be $100 each.

The Bottom Line

Penske Truck Rental has over 45 years of experience in moving resources. They offer multiple resources and services to make your move easy and stress free. Also, you can find additional discount offers and deals if you qualify for them; however, undisclosed prices and additional fees will make it difficult to know how much your move will cost you and what additional fees you might face during your move.

I had a good experience with Penske. I was moving from Iowa to Kansas and rented my truck from them. They were very helpful and I didn’t have any problems with them when I returned the truck to them. I kept the truck for two or three days and didn’t have any problems when I returned it to them. I would recommend them to anyone that asked me where would be a good place to rent a truck for moving.

Made my move so much easier.. Got a quote, reserved a truck, found a location, and set up my move all on-line. Quality customer service. Got to view all thier truck options on-line before deciding which one fit my needs. Affordable, clean, low rates....what more could I ask for?

My husband rented a Penske truck in April/May of 2020 in the Charleston, SC area. It was a good price, and we were able to return it to Monster storage in Orangeburg (which was our destination). We also rented a dolly for our large furniture items, and some furniture blankets. The process was easy, affordable, convenient, and an all around good experience.

I recently moved across the state and rented the largest truck available. Pick up and drop off was incredibly easy. It was a bit expensive but better than hiring a company to move me!

I have used Penske for years. I can count on clean trucks and professional services upon moving. The last thing you want to worry about during a move is, is the truck clean enough to haul my good furniture?!

Always use Penske as my first choice in moving truck rentals. I have used other places but Penske always has new trucks that are clean and well maintained. I have never had any issues with Penske.

Rented a couple of their trucks for the summer for a group I was in and they were super nice. They had an electric lift which made loading and unloading the trucks everyday so much easier. They were also easy to spot cause of their bright yellow color

We. have. used the Penske truck rental service.at least twice to move our daughter to Portland Oregon and to Provo Utah. I really liked this company. They are very fair in how much. their charge often being lower than their competitors. I also like not having to pay by the mile but only by the day. The. check in and. check out. process for the trucks has always been very easy and efficient. I really like that they have. partnered with. Home Depot as a drop off site which is very conveninent. Their trucks are clean and run very well. Never had a problem with the mechanics of the truck. Overall I really like this company

Prices are somewhat affordable but slightly high. There are not that many locations available. I had a hard time trying to a find an affordable truck for just a few hours. It shouldn't be that difficult.

I rented a Penske truck for my move to Arizona, the latch on the trailer was broken so my car was not secure. Customer service responded quickly to repair the latch. The truck has a odometer limiter which negatively affected the gas mileage.

Trucks seem to lack the quality of some competitors in terms of comfort in my opinion, but decided to give them a shot for a quick move for some furniture I got off facebook. No issues, easy customer service.

I have used these trucks for a long time. It is nice and easy to schedule a rental. These trucks have always been clean when I pick them up and they are kept up on maintenance. Won't ever use a different company.

We have used Penske for 2 major moves and both times we were extremely satisfied! The trucks are well maintained and serviced and i never had to worry if it would break down. The rates were very fair with no hidden costs. The customer service was great and always very patient in answering questions. Pick up and drop off were quick and easy. They also have unlimited miles which is really helpful. No hidden fees. Whenever we need a moving truck, we look at Penske first!

I had to drive a Penske truck for an independent percussion ensemble that I work with while we were attending WGI World Championships in Dayton, OH. The truck we used was great and got amazing gas mileage. We drove to several towns for our shows and I never had to fill up the take the entire weekend we were in Dayton. The director had to fill it before turning it in and it was just at below half a tank when he turned it in.

Penske's are fantastic! I love the electric lowering and raising lift feature! It's great for moving heavier items that would be too tough to push up the ramp!

A little on the more expensive side but overall is worth it with what you get in return. Normally they give you the truck with a full tank of gas, but they only gave me 1/2 a tank to start with.

During band, my drumline did not have enough space to store all of our equipment, so we had to rent a Penske truck and doing so really helped us out, it had enough space for all of our equipment, it had a lift on the back of it to help us out, and was really easy to use.

I have used Penske Truck for a long move out of state just once. But it was a great experience. They rented me a late model truck that was comfortable and reliable to use. The truck was bigger than I needed but was surprisingly economical on fuel. I appreciate the overall pricing and the reservations service that it came with.

Like with Uhaul, Penske is very reliable. The process of renting and returning the moving trucks were painless. They do the job well and it's a great option still for moving! No complaints as it's all pretty straight forward. Key is to get someone who knows what they're doing to help with the organization of your stuff to make sure nothing falls or breaks in transit!

We used Penske for moving mulch for a Boy Scout fundraiser. We packed alot of mulch in the truck to deliver to customers. The truck was comfortable and easy to drive. It was also one of the most reasonable rentals at the time. It served its purpose.

Kevin Fallon Wilmington, DE

On July 15th 2017 I had a reservation for a 16 foot truck to help my family with a residential move. I went to the 350 S. Main St., Newark, DE 19711 location and found they did not have a 16 foot truck. This made my move horrendous. We received a smaller truck, had to make multiple trips, and ruining the ENTIRE weekend, when it was only to have been a half of a day. I was assured I would have a truck and did not. I am not sure what kind of business takes reservations but does not honor them? I will not be using them in the future.

We used Penske trucks in our last move and were happy with them. They worked well and had trucks big enough for what we needed. The only issue is they go so slow but I can understand why.

Good company. Trucks are a little higher set than the uhaul trucks but don't have wheel wells inside them. Always a nice truck but can be a little more pricey.
