If there are several loose items in the luggage compartment or the folded-down rear seat, a cargo securing net is a good idea. You can stretch it over cardboard boxes, smaller boards or other individual parts and then attach it to the floor of the boot using snap hooks. The tension keeps all the parts in place. The nets differ in the surface area they can cover and, the corresponding meshes also come in different sizes. This allows you to choose a suitable safety net with meshes small enough to stop objects from slipping through. Thanks to the stable yet elastic nylon, a good cargo securing net for the car can even withstand the forces resulting from emergency braking and still not crush any of the load. This way, you can be sure that you won’t be suddenly hit by an object from the boot during the journey if you have to brake hard, and the driver and cargo will arrive safely.
Since larger, and above all heavier, objects can be transported in a transporter, cargo securing is even more important in a transporter than in a car. Here, too, nets perform a valued service. As in a car, they can be stretched over objects and in this way prevent uncontrolled slipping of objects. They can also be fitted at the rear to prevent the load from hitting the rear door and, in the worst case, opening it in the event of a rear-end collision due to the pressure. In this way, the transported items remain safe in the transporter no matter what happens and arrive at the next home or customer without any scratches or damage. These nets are also attached to the floor or sides of the transporter using snap hooks or fittings.
According to Article 22 of the German Road Traffic Regulations, drivers of a vehicle are obliged to ensure that their load is well secured. A cargo securing net for the car but also cargo securing in the transporter are therefore a great help with loose objects, and are perhaps even essential. This point should be considered before the next transport journey and you should equip your vehicle accordingly with all the necessary means. This way, you are legally on the safe side and will not endanger your own life or the quality of the cargo being transported.
