Hello All, I'm helping a family member get started in the business and lawn care/landscape maintenance is not my specialty so I'm looking for a bit of guidance. My main question is ... I'm about to purchase a trailer for this new endeavor and I'm wondering if I should purchase an open or enclosed trailer? My budget is around 3K and I'm located in AZ. I'd like to keep it cheaper if possible but I'm not sure what is better. Equipment hauled at the moment will be a couple of push mowers, backpack blowers, trimmers/edgers, cans and typical tools/gas/etc. No riding mowers yet, but we may get one in the future if business takes off. The trailers I'm looking at lately are either: - 8x12x2 Open Trailer with mesh sides or - 6x10 (or 6x12 enclosed) - 6 foot height. My concerns with the open trailer is theft of equipment at night. While locked up behind a gate its still not that hard to hop the fence and steal the equipment. What is everyone's opinion on this? Splurge and go enclosed? or just roll with the open trailer? Thanks a lot!
