Old tyre. Or a ratchet strap. Or both. Depends on if you have a full load or not.

If you're coming back from Europe, just get one of the illegal immigrants to hold it for you 🙈
If you're local in the UK, nip over to Europe and pick an illegal immigrant up first 😝
Saves them having to wait for a free dinghy on the weekend 🙊

Quite simple use the laws of pallet truck physics
They can carry mass weights but can't roll over a plastic cable tie on the floor
Simply put a cable tie on the floor at the front and back of each wheel
It's going nowhere
