    Where is the best place to buy a boxed trailer to move large objects?

    Are second hand boxed trailers good?
    What qualities do I have to look for? when buying one.

    Once purchased if you leave it in your front yard, what's stopping someone from coming along and stealing it? Do you need to lock it down with a chain? or chain it to a tree?

    Rent one from bunnings when you need one, unless you use it all the time.

    Or buy 50 heaters from bunnings and use the free trailer to take them all home, use the trailer for other things, then return the heaters at the end

    Chain your pitbull to it, no one will come near it.

    If it's house trained it wouldn't need to be chained up unless it misbehaves.

    What if the trailer runs away?

    @D.T. - it's chained to the dog.

    i used a wheel brace, chains are very easy to cut then again my cordless angle grinder could get through it fast enough.

    ohh and stuff buying 50 heaters, just buy a sheet of yellow tounge flooring, quicker and easier :p.

    We rented for years and got a second hand (large but rough beater) and love having it, easier than always sorting it out if i need it even if we didn't generally have to pay for them.
