"I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them”

- Mark Twain

Travel is one of the great joys of life. Yet how much thought do we put into safely securing our precious cargo before hitting the open road? This might give you pause - a suitcase weighing 20kgs and placed in the boot when hit at only 48 kms an hour has the potential to hit the back seat with the force of a large motorcycle. Aye carumba.

Most professional transport vehicles that navigate around our road systems secure their goods in case of an accident - we’d be outraged if they didn’t.  However, it isn’t uncommon for regular motorists to be travelling with passengers with shopping or pets unsecured in seats next to them. Maybe it's that long holiday with a car overloaded or getting ready for a party...

Whatever the reason, the simple fact is that any unsecured items in a vehicle can become projectiles and place either yourself or your passengers in danger should your vehicle be in an accident.

Fortunately, many Tyres & More stores stock quality cargo restraints, designed to maximise protection between your cargo and your passengers.

Ensure your cargo barrier is tested and rated to the Standard: AS/NZS 4034 and that it is manufactured by a quality certified organisation. And if in any doubt speak to your local Tyres & More store today!
