(Re)connecting Your Car Carrier to Your Truck

Loading Your Vehicle onto the Car Carrier

You are responsible for loading your vehicle onto the car carrier. Penske is not responsible for any damage to a transported vehicle. Consult your insurance carrier before towing a vehicle, or talk to your Penske representative about the Penske towing insurance protection plan.

Important: Check the car carrier, coupler, safety chains, electrical hookup, ramps and tire straps after the first five miles of travel and then every 50 miles thereafter.

Unloading Your Vehicle from the Car Carrier

Do not unhook the car carrier from your rental truck until your vehicle is removed from the car carrier.
