As Construction prospers in the warmer months, so do thieves with more targets everywhere they look. Many contractors assume locking their expensive tools, equipment and supplies in a trailer at the end of each day secures their investment for the night.

With two similar stories, these business owners experienced first hand how devasting the loss is when your trailer is stolen. From $15,000-$40,000 in stolen equipment, that doesn’t include the time, energy and pay lost during the search and timeframe of obtaining the tools again.
