Temporarily Prohibit Parking While Moving

truckCabMoving is an exciting experience, but at the same time, it can be dreadful. Sure, it’s thrilling to move into a new environment, but lugging heavy furniture for hours on end isn’t one of life’s highlights. Combine that with the inevitable banging into walls, denting of furniture and of course, figuring out how the heck you’re going to arrange your furniture. But one thing that’s often overlooked while moving is — you guessed it — parking.

Nothing could put a bigger dent in your move than a lack of convenient parking, preferably in front of your new home. You could go on a wild-goose chase for a parking spot blocks away. Or you can temporarily prohibit parking in front of your home, making your move as seamless as possible.

So if you’re planning a move and need convenient parking, contact the Streets Department’s Right of Way Unit at least three business days (72 hours) before your move. Keep in mind: requests made less than three business days before moving will not be processed. There’s also a permit fee of $25 per 40 feet of space (40 feet equals two parking spaces). Requests for moving trucks can be submitted here.

Now you have one less thing to worry about during your move. If you have any questions, get in touch with us through Twitter or Facebook — we’ll move you in the right direction.
