I am re-posting a rave review of Penske for a move from NYC to (I think) VA:
2/26/06 - I recently rented a Penske truck, as per some of the advice on this site, and had a great experience.
First, i got the truck online, and with my AAA discount, was able to get a 12' truck for 850$ including tax, dolly and blankets. Not bad considering the way the cost of renting a truck has skyrocketed.
I picked up the truck in Brooklyn, NY ... 4th avenue and 12th street i think. The gentleman that rented me the truck was very forthcoming, and said the 12' truck was delivered the night before, and had low mileage, but the delivery guy said when he got up to 50 - 55 mph, there was vibrating in the front end. It could be nothing, but since i was going interstate, If i wasnt comfortable with that, he had a 16' truck that only had 25k miles on it and he would upgrade me for the same price as the 12'. Needless to say i jumped on it. The 16' truck wasnt clean in the back, so he asked if i could wait 15 minutes and hed have his guy clean it out for me right there. Again, no problem.
So off we went, and i had no troubles with the truck during the move. The truck was a smooth ride, everything in the cab worked great, including the heat, and it actually did better on gas than i expected. I would definately recommend a Penske truck over U-Stall any day ...
