No parking? No problem.
In big cities with limited parking, finding space for a moving truck can be a challenge — especially if it has to be parked for multiple days. To help make moving in these circumstances possible, U-Pack offers a “live load,” where the driver stays with the equipment so there’s no need for long-term parking. Take a look at how it works, the areas where live loads are most common, and the details of this type of delivery.

Rules for parking at apartments or storage complexes
Many apartment and storage complexes have tight parking — either due to limited space or because things like gates and buildings make them difficult to navigate through. Because of this, moving from these types of facilities can pose a challenge. If you only have access to one or two spots at an apartment or the storage unit doesn’t allow overnight parking for equipment, special arrangements may have to be made. The first step is finding out what the parking rules are, and then you can choose a moving company that can accommodate them.

Parking permits for moving equipment
Parking permits are usually one of the most overlooked details when preparing a long-distance move, but they’re also one of the most important. And because planning and packing can be hectic, you don’t want the added worry of wondering whether or not parking is available at your new residence. Save yourself some time and stress by determining if you’ll need permission to park the moving equipment and then arranging for it in advance.

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.

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.

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:
