Subhiring equipment in Rentman is useful to solve equipment shortages. Your stock is increased for the period of the subhire, so that your equipment shortages can be solved.

You can subhire from within a project, or use the Subhire module. You can also send a digital subhire request to another Rentman user.

Available for: Lite Classic Pro
