PHH Arval has introduced a service for fleets that rent equipment for short-term projects: PHH Equipment Rental Management Services. The customizable service is designed for fleets that need assistance in securing and/or managing storage trailers, construction trailers, forklifts, lift trucks, aerial lifts or other material handling equipment for projects throughout the United States.
PHH says its rental specialists will help fleet clients secure the right equipment at the right time, using clients’ existing suppliers or PHH’s network of equipment rental suppliers. The specialists manage all aspects of the rental – from delivery and inspections to preventive maintenance – where applicable – and pickup at the end of the project. PHH also audits supplier invoices, consolidates billing and provides detailed information about equipment rental event activity from inception to conclusion via PHH InterActive. The Center for Transportation Safety, a PHH Arval company, provides operator training.
“The management of equipment rentals for short-term projects can be a complicated process with major cost implications when it’s not done efficiently,” says Rob Stowers, senior vice president of PHH FirstFleet, PHH Arval’s truck and equipment services division. “The addition of this new program solidifies our leadership position as the one-stop resource for all truck services.”
