Load Securement For VansPosted by in Cargo securement | Load binders | Load Securement | truck tie downs | winch straps
TweetFor some, the interior of a van offers the sort of safe security they need in preparing and actually shipping a freight shipment. Rather than the open air of a flatbed truck, which sometimes can appear a bit flimsy, the van assures that loads will not go falling off into the street in transit.
Of course, that does not mean that people driving cargo vans should skimp on buying some load securement. With the shifting around of items in the back of your van being inevitable, you are going to want to make sure that things stay put and, more particularly, that your van’s doors are properly secured. Using a ratchet strap you can reinforce your van’s back doors so that even if a large piece of furniture rams into the doors, they do not fly open.
If your cargo is not secure in a van things can be just as, or possibly more, dangerous than with a flatbed. While driving behind a truck piled with stuff many drivers will be deferential and extra careful. They rarely, if ever, show that same care to a seemingle harmless cargo van.
The safest way to transport stuff might be a cargo van but that doesn’t get you off the hook for load securement.
