Ready-to-Rent Tags provide coverage from check in to check out

Ready-to-Rent tags from the American Rental Association (ARA) are designed to help track rental equipment from check in to check out and provide an efficient way to keep your equipment service records up to date. The tags include three colored portions to help with tracking.

  • Yellow portion: Used to record the customer’s checkout information.
  • Red portion: Used when the equipment is returned to record any repair and maintenance needs after inspection.
  • Green portion: Used once the repair is done. The red portion can be torn off, leaving the green part of the tag to indicate the equipment is ready to rent.

The tags are sold in boxes of 1,000. ARA members insured with ARA Insurance receive an additional 10 percent discount on their order.

ARA members in Canada now can order Ready-to-Rent tags that are both printed and shipped from Canada.

Ready-to-Rent tags are in stock, ready to ship, and can be ordered by logging into your account at and clicking on “Shop.” You also can call ARA member services at 800-334-2177 to reset an account password or order tags by phone.
