PCSing can be a trying time for all military families. Every few years, the entire family packs up an entire household only to re-establish a home in an unknown town, sometimes an unknown country, and then must do it again a few years later. Each branch of the military will move a house, but some families opt to do it themselves, which is known as a DITY move. DITY moves can be stressful but can also save military families a significant amount of money.
Penske tries to make PCS season less stressful for military families. They have more than 200,000 rental trucks and with over 1,000 locations there is most likely a rental location close to your installation. They promise a clean, reliable and fuel efficient truck ready to go when you are. The rental includes 24 hour roadside assistance, professional help from associates, and flexible cancellation policies, making it a great choice for military families whose orders can change without warning. Knowing that military families must weigh a vehicle before and after it is loaded, Penske has a Certified Public Scale Locator on their website.
Penske offers discounts and benefits for military personnel renting a moving truck. When a rental is booked online, there is an automatic 10%. Upon pickup, show your military or veteran ID for an additional 10% off. Think you can find a cheaper mode of transportation? Go ahead and Penske will match any offer on one way truck rentals for active military personnel. With a valid military ID and proof of the competitive rate, the discount will be applied at truck pickup.
