How do you properly use wheel chocks for caravans and trailers?

To properly use wheel chocks for caravans and trailers, follow these simple steps to ensure safety and stability. First, park your vehicle on a level surface and engage the handbrake. Next, examine the wheel chocks to ensure they are in good condition, free of damage or wear. Place the chocks snugly against both sides of the tyres, ensuring they make solid contact with the ground. For caravans, use chocks on both the front and rear wheels. For trailers, chock the wheels on the towing vehicle as well. Double-check that the chocks are secure and cannot roll or slip. Finally, proceed with caution when hitching or unhitching, and always remove the chocks before driving away.
