Yard Club Rolls Out Innovative Mobile App

San Francisco, CA, Aug. 8, 2014 -- Yard Club has released a unique peer-to-peer mobile app for the construction industry. Compatible with iPhone and Android smart phones, the app enables renters to browse pictures and rates of available construction equipment and place rental orders in 15 seconds. Owners can rent out idle equipment in one click and equipment managers can easily monitor rentals through documented inspections and update notifications sent by e-mail and text message. The new mobile applications will help Yard Club's members better manage their equipment while in the field.
Yard Club's mobile app allows members to:

  1. Photograph and Inspect Equipment:
    Regardless of whether the equipment is used for an internal job, an outside rental or a rental through Yard Club, the app makes it easy to take inspection pictures and add comments. This helps equipment managers and contractors keep an eye on the condition of their fleet and avoid damage disputes.
  2. Search and Order Equipment
    Contractors can search Yard Club's fleet, check prices, view pictures, and request equipment at any time.
  3. Track and Monitor Rentals
    Members can extend or call-off rentals, add pictures in the field and communicate by sending messages directly to Yard Club and owners.

Yard Club (www.YardClub.com) allows contractors to safely earn income on idle equipment by renting to other trusted members. Yard Club takes care of the entire process – from scheduling, to contracts, to payments. Prices are less than rental company rates by cutting out the overhead of a typical rental company (physical branches, sales forces, overhead) and pass on savings to renters and owners. The company recently opened a Southern California office and will be targeting select East Coast markets later this year. For more information, contact info@yardclub.com.
