Do Penske Coupons Really Save Money?

Will a Penske truck rental coupon save me money?​

Before you book your move, you may be searching for a Penske coupon or Penske discount code. If you’re able to track down one of these discounts, you might find that it doesn’t make as big of an impact as you initially thought. While the coupon code could take a little bit off the cost of the rental truck, it won’t cover any of the “soft costs” associated with truck rentals like fuel, travel, and liability coverage. Let’s dig in and take a look at the discounts, those extra costs, and explore other ways you can save money on your long distance move.

Looking for U-Haul coupons? Find out to save money on your move!

If you’re trying to track down a U-Haul coupon, you’re probably looking to save on your move. I don’t blame you – moving can be expensive! While U-Haul coupons can take a small portion off your rental cost, it’s important to remember the total cost of using a U-Haul. There are extra costs you may not consider when deciding on a moving company. These extra costs like fuel, meals, hotel stays, and road tolls are all expenses that can take a chunk out of your moving budget, especially the cost of fuel. What if there was a way to move on budget without using a U-Haul coupon?

U-Haul Locations vs. U-Pack Locations

November 12th, 2013 - 4:10 PM

How do I find a U-Haul location?

To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive. 

You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves. However, if you are moving long distance, you might not realize that you can move cheap without having to visit a local office, pick up a truck, or drive. U-Pack is a great alternative to truck rental because you can get discount moving without having to drive at all.
