Improve Internal Charge Rates

Accurate equipment internal charge rates are an essential component of the bid estimation process as well as a critical part of rent vs. own decisions. Leverage the Internal Charge Rate product, with 24 customizable ownership and operating cost factors, to create hourly rates that match the unique ownership and operating cost factors of your equipment, allowing for maximum charge rate precision. Useful for asset-specific rates or more general “rate groups”.

Whether at acquisition or disposition, precise, data-driven equipment values are key to maximizing use of your capex budget. Use EquipmentWatch Values & Market Data to keep current on market prices, with disposition-channel specific valuations (FLV, OLV, and FMV). Additionally, ensure precise salvage values for use in your internal charge rate creation process.

Covering nearly every major piece of heavy equipment built in the last 50 years, our online Verification product gives you the ability to identify and verify serial numbers in order to determine a model’s year of manufacture. Use as the first step when considering asset purchase, especially in the retail channel where 10% of serial numbers are inaccurately represented.
