Wheel chocks: for extra safety on the loading bay
Wheel chocks, also known as wheel blocks, prevent the vehicle from rolling during loading and unloading. A wheel chock is placed behind the wheels of a truck.
This prevents major dangers that creeping of a truck can cause. It is not only important to use a wheel chock to prevent damage, but also to guarantee the safety of your staff and bystanders. The use of a wheel chock therefore not only ensures safety but also increases it.
