Stand Downs - Creating a Stand Down

Once the status of a contract has changed to On Hire, you will notice the Stand Downs tab appear in the contract:


From the stand downs tab, you can:

  • Select which asset in the contract that is being stood down
  • Select the stand down period (up to 24hrs)
  • Select the reason for the stand down


Once the stand down has been saved, it will appear at the bottom of the page as a contract line item:

On the hire calendar, stand down periods will appear against assets.

Red tiles are breakdowns & blue are for remaining types of stand downs


By hovering over the blue section with your cursor, you will see the following:

  • Contract Number

Stand Downs - Invoicing

Once a contract is invoiced, any Stand Down/s will appear as a reduction in the invoice items:


The figures in the stand down invoice item can be modified if necessary.

Stand Downs - Client Settings

In client settings, there are invoicing toggles that will change the way that stand downs behave in the system:


  • Charge by Tracked Hours - If this setting is enabled, FleetHire will monitor the utilisation of tracked assets and cancel a stand down if more than 30 minutes of utilisation is recorded on the day.
  • Stand Down Apply Maximum - If this setting is enabled, stand downs won't be included in invoices if the maximum hours for the asset are reached.
