A rental reservation places a hold on the type of tool you want to rent for a specific date and time so it's available for you. No payment is necessary for the creation of a rental reservation. 

The rental contract is the document that Sunbelt Rentals agrees to rent specific equipment to you and you agree to the terms and the price listed in the rental contract. Rental contracts are created at the time of pickup or delivery and will require your signature and payment at that time.

While the reservation number and contract number are different, they are linked in our system.
