There are many things to remember when it comes to move day – almost too many! You might think that once you’ve booked the movers all you’ll need to do is pack up your home, but that’s not the case. There are many other items that must be checked off the list before your move. One of them being, if you don’t have a driveway and live in a busy area, is a moving truck parking permit.

Beltway Movers can not secure the permit for you it’s something you need to handle on your end. It’s fairly easy, but you’ll want to secure the permit sooner rather than later, so you’re not scrambling to get one at the last minute.

Beltway’s fleet is designed to accommodate the alleys, cul-de-sacs and courtyards of the communities we serve.  Your role is to ensure that parking space is available nearest the front of your home for the parked truck.  Failure to secure space for the moving truck will require the crew to search for parking or walk long distances to your home with your furniture in hand while on the clock.

If you don’t have a driveway or ample on street parking in front of your home, you’ll need to reserve on street parking spaces with posted signs through your local police or government center. You might also elect to use companies that will perform this service for you. If you’re interested in this sort of service, we recommend contacting MovingPermits.com – they’re permit pullers that will secure a moving truck permit for you for a fee.

If you’re more of a DIYer, below are links to local government organizations that can assist you with obtaining a moving truck parking permit for your move day.

Below are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to securing and installing moving truck parking permits.

  1. Most jurisdictions require that reserved parking signs be in place no less than 72 hours prior to move day.
  2. Remember to check if there are posted hours or rush hour limitations on your street. Advise your move consultant of any restrictions.
  3. For busy city parking you might place obstacles such as cones or trashcans in the spaces where you have posted no parking signs to encourage people to comply.
  4. Our moving trucks require 3 car sized spaces minimum; 4 spaces would allow safer extension of a loading ramp.

Top Rated, Highly Recommended

Overall really satisfied with the level of care and cooperation from the move team. The process to obtain a quote was very thorough and honest and the expertise was very much appreciated as we needed to know a precise estimate of how much inventory would be moved in order to schedule the appropriate amount and size of self storage units. The sales director kept in contact with us leading up to the move day, answering our questions and updating the move plan as we learned more about our storage needs. Will definitely use them for our next move and highly recommend.

I had a great experience with Beltway Movers. Being new to the area I hadn't heard of them before, but someone recommended them to me and I figured they seemed like a big enough outfit to be legit. What I didn't expect was a great crew! Brian, JR and Ben were friendly, efficient, and attentive as they moved my stuff from a downtown DC apartment to a house in the 'burbs. Brian even fixed my platform storage bed that the previous movers had broken! Moving is a huge pain and I hope to never do it again... but if I do, I'll definitely use Beltway Movers.

Bill Barrett and his moving team led by Brian, along with Ben, JR, and Juan, did a *phenomenal* job with our local move in DC. They were incredibly efficient, professional, and super friendly. They were complete pros and took all of the stress out of our move. Couldn't recommend them enough! Very reasonably priced, too! If another move is needed, they will absolutely be my go-to movers!
