Damn dude, that sucks!

This is like the 3rd guy who's had that happen and posted about it here just in the last few months.

Was the trailer at the shop, or on a jobsite?

Are you the same guy who damn-near lost a hand in a bailer or something like that a couple years back?

Good run of bad luck.

Did you have insurance? Any markings on the tools?

Check the local pawn shops, Craigslist and eBay.

I have insurance
not really any markings

pawn shops will only will give info to the cops
everything they take in gets reported and sits for 30 days

I'll be watching Craigslist and ebay

I use harbor freight sensors but you have to be within400 ft of the sensor for the speaker to beep. So once the door opens I'll hear it and then I can catch them red handed. But harbor freight has loads of different alarms. I did also just get wireless cameras for my house and I can watch live video of it from anywhere on my phone but they need wifi. I love em.

The harbor freight sensors are 15 bucks and are very worth it. I'm waiting patiently for another thief.

I run a Dewalt Mobilelock, have GPS warning stickers on the trailer and nobody has messed with my trailer. Literally had other trades get stuff stolen from their trailer across the street from mine. I have some tough looking locks as well. Deterrence I think helps a lot.

Dude I'm sorry.... If it was a thorough job maybe an employee? Or a disgruntled former employee? My old boss had some sketchy employees for awhile, part of the reason I quit, and the foreman and I were always wary of stuff "walking off"...

I'm sorry man... I hope you can get it resolved. What kind of locks did you have? I ask because I'm hoping to set up a trailer based business soon.

A couple of months ago my insurance agent told me one of their clients got their trailer cleaned out and they had him a check the next day.
