Get Your One-Way Move on With Savings of Up to 50 Percent at Budget Truck Rental

08:00 EDT Monday, May 20, 2013

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Budget Truck Rental today kicked-off a new promotion offering major savings on one-way rentals and towing equipment for anyone in the United States moving from the Southeast to the Northeast, or from the Rocky Mountain states to California, with rental rates reduced as much as 50 percent.

"Providing customers with discounted rates on one-way rentals is a strategic way to enhance the efficiency of our fleet management," said Joe Ferraro, senior vice president of operations, Avis Budget Group. "This promotion provides a financial incentive for our customers in certain regions to inexpensively reposition our fleet vehicles in time for our peak summer moving season. We end up with our trucks where they will be needed, and these customers can save big on their move."

Budget Truck Rental's fleet features 10-foot, 16-foot and 24-foot trucks, and every vehicle undergoes a 10-point quality inspection to ensure proper fluid levels, tire pressure and other necessary elements for a reliable, safe rental. All Budget trucks feature automatic transmissions and have free 24/7 emergency roadside assistance. Budget Truck Rental is also the first and only major consumer truck rental company to offer Global Positioning System (GPS) units, with guidance by Garmin, that include routes designated for trucks.

The one-way rental promotion is valid at participating Budget Truck Rental locations. Reservations must be made by May 29, 2013 and rentals must begin on or before June 27, 2013. Availability is limited and customers should check for information on all available pick-up and drop-off cities, including full terms and conditions. To make reservation, visit or call 1-800-455-1332.
