In our latest Contractor Dilemma, ‘The Big Heist’, trim carpenter Johnny Millen left his tools over the weekend in a site trailer owned by contractor Bryce Christie. The trailer was broken into and Millen’s tools worth $4000 were stolen. How should Christie deal with the loss, if at all?

Some respondents placed the responsibility on Millen. It was his decision to use the trailer for storage, they said, and if he had no insurance, that’s a shame. Happily, no one suggested a false claim should be submitted, a kudo to the integrity of our readers! However, a contractor like Bryce would certainly have comprehensive insurance covering his work sites. No matter who owned tools that were stolen, a legitimate claim could be made that, according to our sources, would not impact Bryce’s premiums going forward.

Our panel of judges selected the outline submitted by Mark Bernier of Minden, Ontario for his excellent and detailed explanation of the correct resolution.

Mark will receive a DeWalt 20V XR VersaClutch Drill, complete with two batteries, charger and kit bag (Model #DCF622M2. Retail value $380)

Our next Contractor Dilemma Contest will be posted in a few weeks. Be sure to enter and have a chance to win a great prize, courtesy of DeWalt!
