    Been in business for three years now, never a problem. Just a couple of days ago got 2 br550 and 1 br600 stolen out of enclosed trailer. It isnt even safe closed and locked up.

    yea thats what i thought. when i ordered my enclosed trailer i thought about not getting a side but then decided to get one. once i pick up the trailer i am putting plywood and 2x4's over the side door so there is no access to it. i figured if i didnt get the side door it would be harder to sell if i ever decided to get rid of it.

    I always locked my side door from the inside.....

    yeah getting stuff stolen seems to be a rite of passage...

    one thing I did, on all my equipment was to engrave a unique asset number on the unit. took a pic of it and then keep that in the binder int eh truck. I was able to get a stolen blower back this way... went to a pawn shop the pawn guy reported it and it was on the police blotter. the kid that pawned got arrested... most S/N on the small stuff is on a decal that is easily removed...

    I unload my enclosed every day and then leave it unlocked so the doors dont get pryed open. If its unlocked and empty they wont damage the doors and there is nothing to steal.
