Storage Container Rental Software

Storage container rental may be your main focus, or perhaps it’s just one part of your total rental inventory.  But container rental has it’s own unique set of requirements. Alert’s container rental software has helped several companies organize and codify their inventory, search more easily for specific features within a class of container, and handle longer term billing easily.

Both Rental & Sales

Alert is known for providing superior rental software, but did you know we can also help you with sales?  Alert’s container rental software can allow you to do long-term or short-term rentals, sale of new containers, and even sell items directly out of your rental fleet on-the-fly!  And, just as easily, we can reverse the process and move items from your sales fleet into rental with the click of a button. So, no need to turn away rentals or sales – we can help you fill both needs from a data standpoint. Now, all you have to do is get the inventory headed your way!

Reduce friction

Make it easy for your clients to do business with you, that’s what we mean by ‘reducing friction’.  Give them a customer portal where they can self-serve: print contracts, pay invoices, even call equipment off-rent.  Use Sign & Rent to send them quotes to be electronically signed, then have the signed copy automatically attach back to that ticket for historical purposes.  Use the same signature capture tool to take and store photos from the pick-up/delivery, notes from the driver, or even request payment in advance.  Alert’s container rental software can also tie to your website’s shopping cart to allow clients to request pricing, and all it takes is one click to convert that request to a quote and send it to the client for their signature.  We can even offer you a true e-Commerce solution if you want clients to book real-time resevations on your website!
