"Reaching self-storage customers during the reservation process and providing them with convenient, on-site access to quality trucks is the perfect way to build brand awareness and generate incremental rentals," said Michael J. White, senior vice president of Budget Truck Rental. "We're thrilled to align Budget Truck Rental with such a leading brand in the self-storage industry and provide customers with a one-stop solution to their storage and transportation needs."
