The transporting of cylinders should ideally be via open vehicles or trailers. If the cylinders must be carried in an enclosed vehicle, ensure good ventilation at all times.
  1. A car boot would not normally be a ventilated compartment suitable for gas cylinder transportation.
  2. Cylinders must be protected against damage from other cargo - especially the valves.
  3. Do not store cylinders in an enclosed vehicle overnight or for periods longer than 1 hour.
  4. Ensure driver is aware of the potential hazards of the load and knows what to do in the event of an accident or an emergency.
