Safety Tips PDF Print E-mail

All our vans are regularly serviced and maintained to the highest standards, with your safety in mind. Even if you have never driven a van or small truck, it is no big deal ! Here are a couple of basic tips :

  • Adjust your mirrors.
  • Be aware of the extra height and width of the van you are driving.
  • Trucks and vans are higher, longer and wider than cars and have a wider turning radius.
  • Watch out for low bridges and overhead barriers at the entrance to car parks etc.
  • Park the vehicle close to the point where you want to unload.
  • Get somebody to guide you back into position and tell you when to stop.

A few tips that may help you on the "Big Day". Remember a well loaded van can hold a lot more items than one loaded at random:

  • Take time out and plan, room by room, exactly how you are going to load your vehicle.
  • Load the larger items first.
  • Protect all items well, to avoid breakages.
  • Wrap small breakable items in bubble wrap or newspaper and pack safely in cardboard boxes (or an empty drawer is ideal).
  • Try to pack the vehicle as tight as possible.
  • Fill all available space to stop items shifting during transit (a mattress or cushions are ideal padding between items to avoid damage).
  • Make large items smaller if you can i.e. if legs can be removed from a table do so, if bunk beds come apart etc.
