How to create a Rent Schedule

Rent Schedules are useful when machines of a specific model, upon reservation, are rented at a specific rate for different periods of time, or, when this model machine has a minimum rental cost. To set a Rent Schedule:

  1. Go to the Machine Model Information page
  2. Scroll down to Rent Schedules and enter a Schedule Name, comment, and if the default is for any specific location
  3.   Enter any Monthly, Weekly, Daily, Hourly, Minimum Cost, or Overage rates
    • If set, the Monthly, Weekly, Daily, and Hourly rates automatically apply to the duration on the rented machine upon being invoiced, with an exemption of a larger Minimum Cost
    • The Minimum Cost will take place of any lesser rental cost from a machine on a single rental contract
  4. Set utilization such as Monthly Hours Allowed, Weekly Hours Allowed, and Daily Hours
  5. Scroll up to click Save Changes

Rent Schedules will appear in the Rental Contract on the right side of the Machine line. Note that the Rental costs will be calculated by the rental schedule based on the billable duration (calculated by time elapsed between checked Out, and checked In) for that machine. Also, the total estimated cost of each Rent Schedule duration for the combined Machine schedules will appear in the Estimated Totals section on the Rental Contract.

Consumables

You can also Edit Consumables once on the Rental Contract Page as well by,

  1. Go to the Contract Tab once on the Rental Contract Page
  2. Clicking the Actions Tab on the right side of the Machine line
  3. Click Edit Consumables
  4. Search the items by using the search items text box and click on the item and choose the correct Measurement Style and Rate
  5. Click close 

Consumbales from Contract

Note, that you can only Edit Consumables when the Machine is in Reserved status or Checked Out. It is recommended that the Consumable Item is labeled as a rental consumable in the Item’s Description, as well as has the correct unit type set in the Base Units section.

The Consumable item will show in the Out and In sections of each applicable Machine. Until consumable amount has been set, the consumables amount will show as Null. To change this,

  1. Click the Out or In sections in the Machine Line
  2. Change the Machine Hours, Date Out, and the Consumables amount
  3. Click Save Changes

Measurement Style

The Consumable amount will change only in the Out or In section which was edited. The Consumables cost for a machine on the Rental Contract is calculated by subtracting the total consumable cost when checked In from the total cost when checked Out.

  • E.g., if a tractor was checked Out with 25 gallons of diesel but checked In with 22 gallons of diesel, and a Consumable Charge where diesel’s list price is set at $4.00 was set up, then the total Consumable cost for this machine would be $12.00.
