Mr Garvock worked for Ellon-based tyre and recovery firm Kairdson Group.
A spokesman for the firm said: “Robert died tragically doing the job he loved.
“He was reliable, diligent and always willing to help in any way he could.
“Nothing was ever a problem for him.
“He was very well-known in the Aberdeenshire area and many of our customers, suppliers and ex-colleagues have been in touch with us to say how sorry they are to hear of his passing.
“He was a very private man and our uppermost thoughts are for his family and friends at this very difficult time.”
Police said they are investigating the incident with the Health and Safety Executive.
Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said: “Our thoughts are with Mr Garvock’s family at this very sad time.
“We have spoken to several people already as part of our inquiries.
“However, I would still be keen to speak to the driver of a white Ford Transit van who I believe was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident.”
A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course and witnesses are asked to call police on 101.
