Load Shift

Ever wonder what happens inside a truck that has to slam on it's brakes or swerve to avoid taking out a car?

Some loads are heavy and don't take much to shift.

Banding, straps and various restraint methods may not ensure that the load remains secure in an emergency move.

Sometimes the packaging or improper loading can contribute to damage from an evasive action.

Best thing is to leave lots of space between vehicles and don't give trucks a reason to make evasive moves, it just might save your life!

That's really a bad packing.
So, check before move!
