Loading and fixing a car into a container


The fixing of the car must be done professionally. For the stowing of the car you need 8 woodenblocks. 4 woodenblocks have to be positioned behind each wheel, the remaining woodenblocks sidewise against the rime. You will have to nail down the woodenblocks on the floor. The buckle must be fixed between the wheels and axels on one side and the metallic loop.After having fixed the vehicle- verify that the batterie is disconnected and the tank is nearly empty.

 

Closing of the container after the loading


When the container is being positioned, the driver will hand over a seal to you with which you will finally close the container. To seal the container you will have to fix it on the right door of the container.
If you do not get a seal from the driver, don't worry! The driver will put it on when he collects the containers.
If the container remains on site during the night- put a padlock on it!
