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


I just went through this whole thread for the 3 time sense joining here.I'm amazed on how organized people are.I myself am good at organizing and figuring out a good system.Hopefully by the end of the summer i will have a 10-12ft trailer.For now i have a 7x20 shipping container for tool storage.I don't think ill need that big of one but then again i am constantly buying tools.I tried to set up the container how i would like a cargo trailer to be set up.After seeing this thread once again i know that there are certain things i want to add to my storage ideas.I do mostly painting and handyman jobs.I def want to carry most if not all my tools.I'm constantly doing extra work for customers and would love to have any tool i need whenever i need it.I have much planning to do and this place is a great start.

Well still not done, got the majority of it built. Still a few more things to add, then it's just tweaking it as I begin to use the setup and add tools ect.

Thanks man, took way to long to get it built. Between the holidays and slammed with work.

The biggest issue was not to fill it up with tools and crap before it was built.

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


Okay so I'm having a bad day... I live in metro Atlanta about 45 minutes outside to be exact and we got hit with 7" of snow the day before I am scheduled to pick up my tandem 6x14 that I bought on sale for 2200$, now I will also pay a 400$ fee for the factory to store it in their yard. I told all of my customers I would be back today and now I'm two days late on finishing for their daughters birthday, that I gave my word I would deliver by, So to add insult to injury, I went to pick up breakfast for the family this morning and some head not watching we're the he was going backed into my baby on her right 1/4 panel and door... I'm at a loss of words. Lucky for me it was a major electric company truck that backed into me so they will pay. Please prey for my sanity!!!!

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


I had to use those today to pull my truck and trailer out of the ditch I slid backwards into. Pretty steep and icy road.

I could have done with them a few weeks back when I slid down a hill backwards with my trailer. That was a pucker up moment.

I'm still waiting on my 7 x 14 trailer also. I guess all this snow may delay things a bit. We got about 18" last night and today. Expecting more tomorrow and Saturday.

Happened to me on ice on that storm a couple weeks ago. Had to stop at a stop sign at the top of a hill and when I started going I started sliding back It's a scary feeling... Sliding backwards and trying to back a trailer and having zero control...

That could have happened easy but it would have been worse as there was a river to both sides down a drop off about 15ft. I lucked out that day.
