I would love to but, I rarely see the trailers in the summer because they just go from job to job. No need to come back to the shop and load up miscellaneous tools. Each crew has everything they need in there. They even have microwaves to heat up the tacos.

hey we have a microwave too for jobsites!

You don't go to the jobsite? No pic, then we're calling B.S! B.S, that's what it is! It's all B.S!

Another great thing about cargo trailers is that when it rains there's a place to go and hide from the rain that's when you do the cleanup in the trailer

I'm reminded of people with cars that are either paid for or almost paid for.

They'll get tired of getting 23 MPG, so they'll go out and buy a new car merely for the 31 MPG! LOL

But the money they're spending on the monthly payment costs more than the gas they're buying for their previous car!

Also cracks me up. Every time!

On the positive side, it's good for the economy!

Also makes me think of when someone calls for a retaining wall. I get there and they say "I want a wall back here I'm tired of mowing this hill".

Ok, we'll build you a wall for $24k, but you can hire. Mowing service for $55 / mow

My absolute favorite thing about enclosed trailers(with all tools needed for any landscape job) is the laborers never have to come to shop. Only windshield time we pay for is 2 delivery drivers(who mobilize 6 enclosed trailers and 6 skids and deliver all necessary materials). Our guys drive their own cars to the job and punch in when they get there. Can you imagine the savings!

I thought I would add to this thread because every one else has. I am in the excavating, site work business.
Different then you guys but a lot alike also. We use cargo trailers because of the need for stuff you didn't even know you needed.
I used to keep my tools in a pick up truck with tool boxes, still use the truck with the tool boxes but most everything is in trailer.

Every night when we would get back to the shop we would have to unload truck and reload truck for the next day. Then if we used the truck to go to a store for some reason we would be concerned than the demo saw, or gas can or something would be stolen out of the truck at some gas station.
The trailers are 7 x14 used for around $2000.00 so not a huge investment and we would never go back. We also use a F450 flat bed truck with tool boxes as a daily driver for what ever that is worth.
