Loading and unloading

LOADING AND UNLOADING

When driving and working in areas which are in close proximity to others, especially in the early morning or late at night:

  • Use a defensive driving style to minimise engine, body and suspension noise
  • Ensure all loads are properly secured and, where appropriate, covered
  • Avoid excessive revving of the engine and switch it off during delivery operations using off-street service areas wherever possible
  • If delivering from the kerbside use designated loading bays, park as close to the kerb as possible and avoid double parking
  • Ensure that you always lock your vehicle and fold the mirrors in, even if you are working at the rear of it
