Describes how to update the due date of a specific product on a rental contract in the customer access portal.
Change the due date for a product on a rental contract when you need to shorten or lengthen the rental period for that specific piece of equipment without having to contact the rental company directly. This enables you to keep your business running smoothly, without interruptions.
For example, if you are renting an excavator for a job, and the due date for the equipment is Friday, September 6, but the job is going longer than expected, you can change the due date of the product to Friday, September 13 so you can keep the product a bit longer. The contract will be updated immediately.
