Pack correctly

Pack correctly

Escape from everyday routine. But not without the smaller and bigger things that make our daily lives even more convenient and pleasant - or the planned travel adventure. With our tips, you will soon have stowed away everything that is important to you. Simply and securely.

More than just a few grams.

Even in the event of an impact at 50 km/h, unsecured objects shoot forward with about fifty times their weight.

This is how to pack safely

Seats as support

Don't fold the seats over. They are an important support - best bolstered by diagonally buckled belts.

Make space for yourself

Secure sports equipment like skis or bikes on special roof carrier systems or in a roof box.

A grille for high stackers

Use a robust luggage compartment grille if you load above the height of the rear seatback.

Heavy things at the bottom. Light things at the top

Pack heavy things at the bottom and, where possible, directly against the seat back. Light things go on top.

Keep the back free

Don't place objects over 25 kg on the rear seat or behind people, but preferably in the foot well. Make sure that no luggage is unsecured.

Keep important things within reach

High-visibility vests, first-aid box, warning triangle and other important things should always remain within reach.

More weight. Less control

On the road with heavy luggage.

An overloaded car is prone to skidding and is more difficult to steer and brake. No need to worry: Our checklist will ensure that you don't let it get that far.

On the road with heavy luggage

Pack correctly.
  • Read up on the permitted total weight in the vehicle registration document or your Owner's Manual
  • Take your passengers' weight into account
  • Weigh heavy luggage, observe permissible load
  • Balance! Distribute the weight evenly
  • Increase tyre pressure if you have a lot of luggage
  • Secure the luggage
  • Adjust your headlight setting (see Owner's Manual)
