READING, Pa., March 24, 2008 - If you're moving back home after graduation and need to rent a truck, be sure to visit, where Student Advantage Cardholders can save up to 20% with Penske Truck Rental when they reserve their truck online. This offer is for a limited time only and is exclusively available online through Student Advantage.

Penske Truck Rental provides clean, safe and reliable vehicles from convenient locations across the United States.

Penske also sells boxes, packing tape, bubble pack, moving blankets, and rents hand trucks that help protect your belongings and make your moving experience easier.

To ensure a smooth moving day, Penske recommends picking up your truck a day early. When traveling, park in well-lit areas and padlock the rear door.
