How to Reserve Parking Spaces for Removalist Vans
Here are the quick links to parking permit information for Removalists across Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane for tight street or city parking access.
If you are moving to a complex, or a narrow street in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne or Brisbane's densely populated inner city areas you may need to consider the parking situation in the immediate vicinity of your new property. There may be parking restrictions such as hourly time limits or clearways which could impact on how you or your removalist can access the property easily. In this case you will need to weigh up the cost of a parking permit for close faster access versus having the Removalist park further away and having to ferry things back and forward.
Depending on which Removalist you are working with either they can pay or you can pay on behalf of them to secure the space. You can apply and pay for permits online so you don't have to worry about them when moving time is upon you.
It can be helpful if you are able to assess the area visually in person, but, for the location you are moving to, take a virtual look on Google Maps street view to help you gain a better understanding of any challenges.
Use the links below to find maps on where parking permits are required in Sydney and more importantly how to apply for a tradesperson or residential permit for yourself. The estimated cost for the tradesperson permit is $56 and for further information we recommend calling the hotline to check the guidelines on 02 9265 9333.

All cities have their own rules around reserving parking if you are moving into a tight street. Our recommendation is to always check at least 10 days in advance of who will pay for the permit, who will organise it, and how much it will cost, and any other procedures you need to follow to avoid any surprises come moving day.
