Process an in yard return occur when your customer rents a piece(s) of equipment from you that must be loaded from your yard because it is too large to hand over the counter, but the customer does not need you to transport it for them.  The customer intends to either transport the equipment themselves, or hire a third party to pick up and return the equipment.  

When the customer returns the equipment to your yard, you can use Texada Mobile to check the piece(s) of equipment directly back into the yard.  

At the time of the return, use the app to select the customer, contract, and piece of equipment being returned.  Establish the condition of the equipment by taking photos and adding comments to the equipment’s record, protecting your company in case of any disputes. You are then prompted to collect an email address and digital signature from the customer for the return.

Finally, if the customer is on-account, they are billed automatically.  If they are a cash customer, you must prompt the customer to go to the counter so they can pay for the rental in person.
