Top 5 Reasons to Rent From Penske

Running a business can be difficult, but renting a truck shouldn't be. With Penske, you get a clean, reliable, fuel-efficient truck ready to go at pickup time. You also get personal help from our professional associates, 24/7 Roadside Assistance, and flexible reservation and cancellation policies. What else does Penske offer? We've put together the top five ways Penske edges out the competition, and why Penske is the place to start when looking for a truck rental.

1. We have some of the best trucks in the industry.

Our commercial rental fleet is known throughout the industry for newer, cleaner trucks. And as one of the largest fleets in the business with more than 99,000 vehicles, including cargo vans, light-duty to medium-duty box trucks, flatbeds, refrigerated trucks, tractors and trailers, we have the resources and the know-how to make sure you get the right vehicle for your needs. Alongside our growing electric vehicle fleet, Penske has also been recognized by the EPA SmartWay® Transport program for its commitment to promoting sustainability in trucking, giving you and your business the option to go green and reduce emissions.

2. We're reliable.

With more than 9,500 trained technicians and over 800 service locations, our vehicle fleet is one of the youngest and best maintained in the industry. Our trucks routinely go through Dynamic PM ®, our unique data-driven service that delivers the right preventive maintenance at the right time, ensuring that vehicles run efficiently and get the attention they deserve, avoiding breakdowns and preventable repairs.

3. We're convenient and available.

With quick pickup and drop-off at more than 2,500 rental facilities across North America, Penske trucks are easy to find. While some companies promise a truck they can't provide, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of customer satisfaction while fulfilling the rental obligations we make. And if plans change, you can cancel your reservation anytime with no fees attached.

4. We provide the top technology to make things easy.

We offer drivers free tools that make it easy to complete daily tasks while staying informed, compliant and connected. The Penske Driver™ app, which connects quickly and easily inside Penske's rental trucks using Bluetooth®, is a free, fully integrated, ELD-compliant custom app that provides drivers with easy Hours of Service (HOS) functionality to meet the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate for rental trucks. In addition, Penske continues to permit drivers and fleets to use their own portable ELD systems in its rental vehicles. Many of our medium-duty trucks and tractors also benefit from the newest technology, including standard collision mitigation systems, active brake assist, side object detection, adaptive cruise control, stability control, lane departure warnings and more. Our advanced technology provides you with safety, visibility and control on and off the road.

5. We're there when you need us most.

In the unlikely event of a breakdown, one call to our 24/7 Roadside Assistance team is all you need to get back on the road. When you call, one of our experienced, in-house Penske associates will ensure your driver and load are safe, identify the problem, and dispatch emergency roadside assistance. We maintain communication for complete visibility and provide a comparable substitute vehicle if needed to get you moving as soon as possible. And with our extended network of 14,000 qualified service providers, we keep things moving even if you're not near a Penske facility.

Whether you're looking for a strategic business partner to help your business grow, or for help handling a surge, look to Penske for expertise and resources that keep you moving forward.
