How Much Do Truck Rental Discounts Really Save?

March 28th, 2011 - 2:19 PM

How much do truck rental discounts really save?

Let's be honest, everyone loves a discount.  If you're moving, you're probably no exception!  While truck rental discounts may seem like a good deal, keep in mind the extra costs in addition to the basic rental rate when you're getting moving quotes.

Even with a truck rental discount, what's the full price?
Truck rental prices typically will not include fuel, taxes, or a collision damage waiver to protect the driver of the truck.  Make sure to add these costs in, so that you can determine your overall cost.

Penske Truck tental Compared to U-Pack Moving

Compare Penske truck rental rates to a U-Pack quote
Practically everyone has heard moving horror stories where someone ends up "broken down on the side of the highway".  I'm not going to re-tell one of those stories because in truth, they don't happen to every single person that drives a rental truck. What I will tell you has to do with one very important aspect of moving— the cost. Penske truck rentals are known for seeming fairly inexpensive, but what many people may not consider are the 'extras'; things like fuel, meals on the road, extra hotel stays, etc.

August 13th, 2010 - 11:00 AM

It's official— you're moving.  If you're like me, I'll bet the panic is already setting in as you envision yourself bumping along a winding road in a rental truck.  What happens if it breaks down? What do I do with the truck when it's time to stop at a hotel for the night?  And another thing— how am I going to get my car to my new place if I have to drive the rental?

Today while I was looking around on the web, I ran across a question someone who is moving from Nevada to Wisconsin posted on a website. I think questioning the best way to move is a legitimate concern, so it prompted me to write this post about alternatives to one way truck rental. Here's what I read:
