  • In our experience Penske has newer, better, cleaner trucks. They are about the same price. I will never rent uhaul when Penske is available.

  • I'm the moving queen. I prefer penske because not only is it pretty much the same price as UHaul but you get unlimited miles with it. Uhaul only gives you a certain amount then charge you almost a $1 for every mile afterward. The only down fall is penske trucks only take diesel gas and that can get expensive if you're traveling long ways

  • When we moved, I called around, and Penske had the best prices. That was a few years ago though. Penske trucks always seem so much nicer too, Uhaul trucks always look like they're ready to break down to me for some reason lol.

  • We don't have Penske around here so it's Uhaul or nothing. Is there somewhere where you can find customer reviews online?
