Covert, wireless technology identifies and captures “off rent” equipment usage
It’s off rent, but not really
Warren Darby built his successful rental company, Rent E Quip, on hard work and trust. So when one of his best customers called one Monday night explaining that he wouldn’t have his rented backhoe back until the following morning, Warren thought nothing of it. When the following morning came around, the customer explained that he was in the middle of pouring concrete and would have it back that afternoon without exception. When the machine did return, Warren informed the customer that since he had run it an extra 2.6 hours that day after he called it off rent the night before, and would be charged an extra day’s rental. The bewildered customer inquired how Warren could possibly know that, and Warren gladly explained that the TITAN Equipment Monitoring System remotely tracks every hour the machine runs every day. With an embarrassed smile the customer came clean, “Well, I’m busted then. I did take it to another job and run it this morning”.

Sure enough, the backhoe was on a different job miles away from where it had been that morning.
"Knowing the hours and location in case a situation arises is as much the reason we selected the TITAN as theft protection. Having access to the equipment’s history to use in case a dispute arises is invaluable and undisputable evidence for proper resolution. In this case we picked up a second day’s rental, where before we simply would have never known"
