How do you trust hired help with equipment?

I see lawn guys working off of other companies equipment how are they doing that? That guy can just walk off with their stuff at anytime.

Don't know how. I know it's not insured though. Insurance covers work done by the company. Insurance doesn't extend to "non-jobs". Got an invoice from the "job"? Or are you talking about employee theft? Where the employees are using the company gear for a "moonlighted job"?

I think what he's trying to say is. employees are using equipment off the job site.

for like personal use....

if this is what your refering. I do sometiems lend equipment. But most people can pay the deposit.
it's 5,000.00 per trailer. and a ztr is 20,000.00 deposit
