What types of trailers does Penske have?
Unlike other companies that rent one-way trailers, Penske® only offers trailers for towing a vehicle. And you must pull them with a Penske truck. Keep reading to learn more about the trailer options and find out if U-Pack is a better choice for your move.
Penske car trailer options
Here’s what the company offers:
The Penske tow dolly is best for front-wheel drive vehicles since rear-wheel, four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles will need to have their drive shafts disconnected and removed before towing. It has 3-point tie-downs and attached ramps and can hold up to 4,300 lbs.
Car carriers are suitable for towing front-wheel, all-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. They have 3-point tie-downs and ramps that are 84 inches long with a 13.75-degree angle. These can hold up to 4,050 lbs.
How much does it cost to rent one?
Because you have to rent a Penske trailer with a truck, the cost will include both pieces of equipment, liability coverage and the required environmental fee (see a towing cost example). Because these things can add up quickly, it may be better for your budget to use a moving service where you don’t have to tow your car!
How moving with U-Pack compares to renting a Penske trailer and truck
U-Pack® is a great alternative to driving a rental truck and towing your car. U-Pack is a self-moving service where you do the packing and loading (like with Penske truck rental), but we handle the driving. Your belongings are delivered door-to-door, so you’re free to drive your car instead of towing it. It’s often comparable in price to a rental truck because there are no extras like fuel, liability coverage or towing trailers.
