    Just figured I'd let you boys know to keep your trailers LOCKED when you're not in sight of them..

    I had four guys in a back yard and, while they were there, someone took it upon themselves open the door to the enclosed and take the blower ($500) and a weedeater ($400).

    I swear these thieves must have some bal*s. Four men less than 100 ft. away but you're gonna walk in to a trailer and grab equipment?

    I wish that one of my guys would have caught whoever it was....

    All four have been with me over a year.. Additionally, I had two friends on the same contract (Government cleanout work) in the same area with two-cycle machines stolen in the past couple of months..

    Yeah, 4 guys for a backrad. The crew was doing cleanout work on houses that have been neglected since Hurrican Katrina (3 years), so 4 guys in a backyard was nothing; some of the more neglected houses take nearly a half of a day and will yield 100+ cu. yds. of debris.

    I absolutely have contractor's insurance, though it wouldn't make much since to pay a $1,000 deductible for $900 worth of stolen equipment...
