  • Five Great Tips on How to Best Pack Your Car

    Have you any idea how much force can develop inside a vehicle on full braking or in an accident? Objects flying around, as a result, are often the cause of serious injuries to passengers. Avoid these situations by following these tips on packing your car:

  •  Heavy objects should be stowed right at the bottom of the trunk directly behind the backseat.
  • Never pile up luggage to above the height of the backrests in vans.
  • Try not to leave any gaps and pack individual items of luggage as closely together as possible.
  • Fix the load in position with straps or use non-slip mats.
  • Make sure the driver's vision isn’t obstructed in any direction.
