Whether you get your news listening to the radio, watching television, reading the paper, or browsing online, it always seems that someone's trailer or its contents was stolen from a home, business, or worksite. It doesn't matter who owns the trailer - it could be an individual, a farming operation, a volunteer organization, a summer youth baseball team, a university grounds crew, or a commercial pesticide company - all trailers are vulnerable. Thieves always look for "inviting" opportunities to take trailers, equipment, and/or pesticides off your hands. Permanently. That's because we know that there is, and always will be, a market for stolen goods like trailers, construction equipment, pesticides, and hand tools. Most thieves steal these items, because they are hard to trace and thieves can quickly and easily turn them into cash. Thieves can sell your trailer (or what was your trailer) in states that do not require a title at the time of sale, and they can sell your tools from the trailer at a pawn shop in another city. It's as simple as: here today, gone tomorrow.
