The Good

  • Discounts 
  • Moving Supplies and Services 
  • Roadsite Assistance 

Discounts

Penske Truck Rental offers multiple discount offers and deals. Of all the national truck rental companies, only Penske offers free unlimited miles on one-way truck rentals anywhere in the United States. Other companies charge for miles over a certain amount. Penske offers the following discounts:

  • AAA members discounts on truck rentals and moving supplies

Moving Supplies and Services

Having additional moving supplies and services is the key to making your move simple and convenient. Penske Truck Rentals offers the following resources:

  • Towing equipment
  • Moving boxes and supplies
  • Self storage
  • Moving labor

Roadside Assistance

Penske offers 24/7 roadside assistance with your Penske equipment, such as truck-flat tire, mechanical problems, fluid leakage, etc. The roadside assistance is available 365 days a year at any time of the day, because accidents do not take vacations.

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.

Moved from ID to UT with a Penske truck. It was brand new, clean, and ran much better than the UHaul I used in a previous move. Great price too!

Penske is a great option for moving. They have great prices and the trucks are nice and easy to operate. They are a sure way to go.

I have used Penske Truck rentals in the past, but usually they are higher priced and not very convenient.

Penske Trucks are great for the money. They are a little cheaper than U-Haul and just as reliable.

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.
