Thanks Jerry. I used a pine 1x10 ripped down to 9" for the top four drawers and ripped down a 1x8 to 6 1/2" then joined two pieces together to make a 13" front for the bottom drawer.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I often look at the pics of these trailers and setups and always wonder how things travel.

Nothing worse than having all your neatly organized stuff on the floor when you open your doors getting to the site.

Just an observation.....

Story....
I forgot to lock the side door one day in a hurry and lost everyone of those bins coming around a corner. Nails screws, fasteners, everything right in the middle of the intersection.



I used a grain scoop and just shoveled it all into a couple of trash cans.
I'm still sorting that mess out.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Some very nice set ups here. How many people leave thier trailers on site? Anyone with security systems? I ask because I am outgrowing my Chevy's 8' box. But at least my tools come home with me every night. What do you guys do?

99% of the time, the trailer gets pulled back to the shop at night. It would cost way to much money to replace everything in there.

I've got insurance on the trailer and contents, but rarely leave it. If I do it's in the driveway where they will block it in with their cars at night.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I always make sure it is a good place to leave it parked, if not i find a nearby place to park mine. I also make sure it is a well lit area. I also have three locks on the back door and two on the front. I have ins. on the trailer but couldn't find anyone to ins. the contents. If anyone has any info on where to get some ins. for the contents, please let me know. I also see on this site where some of the guys here have trailer alarms, I also would like some info on that also. It's a shame that we all have to work so hard on protecting what we work so hard for. Maybe we need to sit, every now and then, inside our trailers and give them a big surprise with a 44 mag when they open the door!. Maybe then we can get the word out that we are not going to put up with theft. I think I'm speaking for all of us, we work to damn hard for what we have to have to go home and have to worry about some low life a**hole breaking into our trailers. Thanks for the info.

I believe its called Inland Marine Insurance. I have $5000 tool and equipment coverage, and its just through the same company that handles my gen. liability. I never have more than that left in one place so I am more than covered.
