    We had one of our local storage places catch fire today and several units were damaged. Caused by someone working on there motorcycle in there unit.The Fire department had to saw holes in many units to stop the spreading fire. That is always a risk along with theft.

    So most of the things that are stolen are at job sites?

    another view, tried to get pics of the other trailers but the sytem wouldnt up load. All of our trailers have similar locking systems. Locks on trailer are welded to trailer and run through walkers and in puch mowers and lock on to other side of trailer. There are also locks on trailers gates so they will not open.
