How GPS Tracking Benefits Your Equipment Rental Company

15 Mar 2018

If you’re in the equipment rental business, you don’t need any help to know that it can operate at a hectic pace at times and the smallest details can be lost through the cracks for months at a time before you notice. GPS tracking can help you get a better handle on those fine details and so much more. These are just a few of the benefits GPS tracking has to offer your equipment rental company.

Ensure Timely Deliver of Your Rental Equipment

This is a bigger issue than you may realize. With some communities expanding rapidly, old maps are no longer relevant and new areas and neighborhoods might not even show up on the maps you already have. With GPS fleet tracking, you get access to the latest map updates and turn by turn directions, so your deliveries make it to the right location every time. More importantly, you can offer highly accurate appointment windows based on the schedule of your daily deliveries thanks to GPS navigation that can help you route around traffic delays, weather, and more.

Improve Billing Accuracy

With GPS to serve as a billing guide for drop offs and pick ups of rental equipment, you can improve accuracy in a way that wasn’t always possible when you relied on drivers to do the record-keeping. If there are disputes from customers, GPS data offers proof of deliveries and collections, so they can be confident that you’re not trying to take advantage of them if questions do arise.

Schedule Maintenance

Routine maintenance is essential for extending the life of your rental equipment. It is especially important since the people who rent the equipment may not be as careful with said equipment as they would be if they owned it. GPS tracking allows you to automate the scheduling of routine maintenance ensuring that it gets down and keeping your equipment in excellent operating order, thus making you more money, longer.

Discourage Thievery

Most of the equipment you rent out is expensive equipment that people don’t necessarily want to buy. Unfortunately, they may not be overly eager to return the equipment either. Some may even try to sell it for a quick profit. GPS tracking allows you to find your equipment – substantially increasing the likelihood of recovering your equipment if it is sold or just stolen.

As you can see, GPS tracking has much to offer your rental equipment company. These are just a few quick examples. The big question you need to ask is why you aren’t using it yet.
