How do I get a parking permit for a moving truck?

Do I need a parking permit for my moving truck?

If we had a nickel for every time this great question was asked… well, we’d have a lot of nickels. Whether you’re driving the truck yourself, or having a company like U-Pack do the driving, you may need a parking permit.

Parking rules and regulations vary from city to city, so it’s very important to check the requirements as far in advance as you can (and definitely before moving day). Ignoring the need for a permit may result in being charged fees. Or worse, the equipment could be towed, leaving you responsible for the charges.

Do you have enough space to deliver and park a U-Pack trailer?

If you're considering a move across the country in a U-Pack trailer, how does the idea of getting this truck delivered to your home make you feel?

ABF Truck Profile

Are you concerned that the driver won't be able to get it to your location or that there won't be room to park it?

As long as you have a safe, legal and paved (or hard-packed gravel) location, free from low-hanging trees and power lines (with a clearance of 14 feet), and you have at least 40 feet of length for parking (think 2.5 Chevrolet Malibu cars), getting a U-Pack trailer delivered should not be a problem.

Are you worried about parking a moving truck?
When you picture a moving truck, what comes to mind? Is it a large, bulky moving van? I think that’s the image that comes to mind for a lot of people. And in many cases parking something that large in a neighborhood or apartment complex is simply out of the question. There’s good news though; when you move with U-Pack, the truck that’s delivered to you is much smaller, much more maneuverable, and much more affordable. Here’s what I mean:

It's Flashback Friday— each week, U-Pack will revisit a blog topic that's been helpful and fun for our readers. Be sure to check the comments section of each post for even more valuable moving advice!

On moving day, parking is likely the last thing on your mind. Remember to check on parking permission for your U-Pack moving trailer or ReloCube a few weeks before the big move— you'll be glad you did!

To Park or not to park?

We've all experienced parking woes; whether learning to parallel park to get our driver's license (still can't), warnings from our parents about ’parking' when we were teens (didn't listen), or that pesky law enforcement officer insisting on issuing a parking ticket (I still maintain that meter was faulty!)

A parking issue is the last thing you'll want to worry about on the day of your move!

Not sure if you need a parking permit in your city? 

It's a good idea to check it out – because some cities require that you have obstruction or parking permits.  

Why get a parking permit?

  • It ensures that your ABF moving trailer or ReloCube has a guaranteed place to park on your move day. 
  • It keeps you from getting a ticket for the equipment being double parked or parked in a loading zone without authorization.
  • It ensures that you have a safe, clear area for loading and unloading

Ask permission first, not forgiveness later...

Although the forgiveness route may work with some things, when a parking violation is on the line I wouldn't suggest it! City governments like to know what is being parked on their streets and if they don't approve, you could end up with a ticket. This is clearly not something you want to deal with when you're trying to move.

Save yourself a headache (and money) by calling your city hall or local police department before you move

Larger cities are usually more concerned with parking permit issues than rural areas, but it's always wise to check. You know what they say about people who assume….

New Orleans Parking Permits

There is no place in the world like New Orleans, LA.  Where else can you find Cajun cooking, Mardi Gras, and several major universities – only in the Big Easy. What a great place to live!

If you've lived in, or even just visited New Orleans, you probably know that parking can sometimes be a challenge.  Part of the New Orleans charm comes from the beautiful historic presence that is seen in its classical architecture, "old timey" feel and narrow, building-lined streets. Although the layout makes for a beautiful city, it may not be very practical when you're trying to move.
