Industry Spotlight: Solutions for Home Contractors and Tradespeople

Two tradespeople work on installing a new kitchen.

As a professional home contractor or tradesperson — whether you’re a carpenter, plumber, electrician, flooring installer, home remodeler or something else — you understand the importance of reliable transportation for your tools, materials and crew. Whether you need a truck for a bigger job, to replace one in the shop, or for any other short-term need, Penske’s commercial truck rental services provide flexible and cost-effective solutions for your business.

Flexibility To Meet Your Needs

One of the primary advantages of renting a commercial truck from Penske is its flexibility. You can select the truck size and type that best suits your current project. Need a 16 ft. box truck for transporting large quantities of materials, or a 24 to 26 ft. flatbed truck for extra-long siding or flooring? Penske has a diverse rental fleet to meet your needs. Renting allows you to scale your transportation resources up or down based on project demands without the long-term commitment of ownership.

Cost-Effective Solutions

Renting an additional vehicle can be more cost-effective than buying and maintaining a new truck. Ownership comes with expenses like insurance, maintenance and depreciation. By renting, you only pay for what you need when you need it. Additionally, Penske offers discounts and flexible rental terms, ensuring you get the best value for your budget.

Support for Diverse Industries

We know that trade professionals within this industry have unique needs. Whether you’re a carpenter responsible for transporting lumber, a plumber carrying pipes and fittings, an electrician with a load of cables and tools, a flooring installer with heavy tiles, or a remodeler requiring versatile cargo space, Penske has a truck to match your requirements.

Our delivery van with shelves allows you the option of added organization the next time you’re heading to a job. With 22 in. deep built-in, collapsible shelves ranging in length from 4 to 5 feet, each pipe, electric wire, fitting and fixture will have an easy-to-access spot in the truck.

For larger or heavier loads, our spacious 22 to 26 ft. rental truck can fit up to six pallets (aka bunks or drafts) of 2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. studs, for your next home renovation job. It’s available in both CDL and non-CDL, and provides up to 1,700 cu. ft. of loading room along with a liftgate/ramp to make moving heavy or bulky materials easier.

Modern Sustainability

Committed to sustainability, we also offer electric rental options, like the electric high-roof cargo van. Practical and versatile, this hardworking vehicle can handle a variety of jobs across town or across the region, helping to reduce your environmental footprint and leading to fuel cost savings. With 450 cu. ft. of loading space and 3,300 lbs. of payload capacity, you’ll have plenty of room for project tools and materials.

For professional home contractors and tradespeople, renting a commercial truck from Penske is a smart, flexible, cost-effective solution. It lets you focus on delivering high-quality work to your clients while letting us care for your transportation needs. With a reliable fleet, flexible rental terms and exceptional customer service, Penske is your trusted partner in getting the job done right.
