Penske Truck tental Compared to U-Pack Moving

December 17th, 2010 - 2:03 PM

Compare Penske truck rental rates to a U-Pack quote
Practically everyone has heard moving horror stories where someone ends up "broken down on the side of the highway".  I'm not going to re-tell one of those stories because in truth, they don't happen to every single person that drives a rental truck. What I will tell you has to do with one very important aspect of moving— the cost. Penske truck rentals are known for seeming fairly inexpensive, but what many people may not consider are the 'extras'; things like fuel, meals on the road, extra hotel stays, etc.

Compare Budget Truck Rental Equipment to ABF U-Pack

December 8th, 2010 - 3:28 PM

We often get questions about how U-Pack equipment compares to Budget truck rental equipment. When you're comparing prices and services, it's good to know how the sizes convert so you can make sure you're comparing apples with apples.

To help you get a good picture of what an ABF moving trailer looks like, they're 28 feet in length, 8 feet wide, and 9 feet tall. So they're longer, wider and taller than even the largest Budget rental truck.

The chart below converts Budget truck rental sizes to ABF trailer linear footage.
