Anyone put a 4th gen on a Penske trailer?

I'm about to move across the country and will trailer my '01 wrapped in some kind of Auto wrap tape protection. Penske tells me the car is too low to load on their trailer, but was curious if anyone has experience with this type issue. When I bought the car I towed it home on a u-haul trailer with no issues. I would think they're basically the same type trailer.

Thanks!

My trailer isn’t a Penske, but my lowered fourth gen needs some extra help to get up there. I lift the nose with the trailer jack, and I have some ramp extensions I made out of 2x12s that I use to lower the incline of my 8’ aluminum ramps. Without that, the subframe connectors or the tunnel brace will catch on the edge of the trailer.

Not sure what a Penske trailer looks like, but ditto.... trailer has pullout ramps (photo attached). Nose would scrape without cribbing them with some ramps made from 2x12's. Same wooden ramps I use with my car ramps.
