    I am based in Venice. Do you have any pictures of your rig?. If you own your home perhaps you can file a claim with your home owners policy or renters insurance?
    Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

    That news is better than I expected, keep after the local detective handling the case. I hope you get your truck and trailer back soon. Will your insurance company provide you with a rental in the mean time?, how go's the claim for your equipment losses??.
    I believe you may be eligible for a victims compensation fund due to your work truck being stolen as well. Check with your local Police and or the States attornys office for more details. All the best.

    Check on the victims assistance fund thru the State of Florida. Is it possible to secure a short term loan from your bank or credit union based on your circumstances? I believe your still in it, don't give up yet!

    What if you used your insurance settlement as collateral?, funds could go directly to bank and you would still be able to secure your replacement equipment for say a 30 or 45 day note?. Otherwise you could try JD went worth 877cashnow.
