Calculating Time Basis of Rates

It is the general practice in the industry to base rates upon one shift of 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week, or 176 hours per month of a 30-day consecutive period.

Rental Period

On local rentals the equipment rental period most often starts when equipment leaves the lessor’s warehouse and stops when it is returned to the warehouse.
