Penske Truck Rental Enhances Services for Employee Relocation Industry

READING, Pa., August 7, 2013 – Penske Truck Rental is enhancing the services it offers for employee relocations in the U.S. and Canada. These services help corporations moving employees for career changes and relocation service providers coordinating employee moves on behalf of corporations.

Penske Truck Rental has added a dedicated customer service and sales team within its call center to serve the specialized needs of employee relocations. Penske has also added additional capabilities such as: moving labor to help load and unload its rental trucks, self-storage options, and customized billing options for these services.

“Our expanded services help professionals managing or servicing a mobile workforce or other workforce mobility professionals with a do-it-yourself move option,” said Penske's Don Mikes, Senior Vice President of Rental.

According to Worldwide ERC®, a professional association for workforce mobility of which Penske Truck Rental is a member, organizations often permit employees an average of less than two weeks (11 days) to accept a formal transfer offer. Once an employee accepts a transfer offer, employers are allowing the transferee an average of 33 days to move and report to their new job.

“Time, cost and ease of use are of the essence with an employee relocation move,” added Mikes. “We have a solid solution to make the process easy ranging from rental trucks, towing equipment, and moving supplies to services beyond the truck such as self-storage and moving labor.”
