    So I was driving through the local supermarket today with a friend and decided to go around back. This is what I found sitting next to the contractors equipment trailer. My guess is it happened the other day during New Jerseys large snow event, guess the operator forgot where there was curb.:nono:
    The one side is pretty badly bent and the other side was bent alittle. I guess you can just heat up the sides and bend them back to save money, but still its got to be a pain in the A$$.

    It looks like it was bent from the top. Like someone backed into it. If a curb did that the bottom would be bent.

    :laughing: I see, it is upside down. The side that is not bent that bad looks like it won't touch the ground.

    Getting better educated on what my competition does / uses, on what they do right or wrong. educating myself in case I want to bid on that property in the future. If I see something wrong I might snap a couple of pictures to show my guys so they know what not to do if we ever do get a contract for that property.

    And to be honest, it wouldn't be the first time I see my competition driving around on one of our properties...
