I am sorry to hear of your misfortune I am assuming that your trailer was not covered by insurance. That would have helped you purchase at least a good used one to get your business off the ground.
You could try looking in your local junkyard to see if you could locate a fixable trailer that will at least help you not loose your potential clients. You would be surprised at some of the things people deem as garbage when all the item really needs is a few screws here and there and a good paint job.
Clinton - Sorry to hear about your loss. You might want to try crowd funding websites for loan where members contribute small amounts to make up the amount you are looking for. The interest rate you will pay is typically lower than that charged by banks depending on your credit history. Try www.prosper.com and www.lendingclub.com . These are the most popular ones I have come across.
I have never heard of such a concept and it sounds interesting. Could you please elaborate a little on how this works or have you had any experience using this type of site? Maybe others can benefit from this information. Thank you for posting it.

Hello Fellow Members,
My name is Clinton, I am a U.S. Veteran who feels thatthe only way to get ahead in life is by working hard and being honest in every aspect of my life and I apply the same to my business as well.
Before getting m business started I worked nights (Still Do) for a temporary agency to provide for my family and I and I used whatever extra money (was not much) to buy used lawn care equipment and about a month ago I found someone who was willing to sell me a utility trailer on payments and it looked as if my business was starting to take off, but about two weeks ago I returned home from work at 2:30 to find my trailer missing, so I called the police and filed a report with them, but it still has not been found and I am left with still having to pay for a trailer that I am not able to use and to add to everything many of the lawns I had worked hard to line up for service are large lawns and without the means to transport my equipment I am on the verge of seeing them lost.
Now please do not misunderstand me here, I am not here asking for a hand out, I am here asking if anyone could nelp me out with loan or maybe a trailer in exchange for lawn care services.....Please Let Me Know.
