There are many reasons why moving house might be difficult or even impossible. One of the most common ones is that you’re unable to find and secure a parking space. If this is the case, then you need to know how to reserve a space for removalist vans. This article provides some handy tips on how to do just that and make your move easier.
The importance of a parking space
Often, when moving house, you might find yourself without a parking space. This can be especially difficult if you’re relying on a removalist van to transport your belongings. If this happens to you, then it’s important that you know how to reserve an allocated space for the removalist van. As soon as the removalist company contacts you about the move, call them and ask them about booking a parking space for their vans. This is your chance to make sure that they’re aware of your specific situation and request an allocated spot in advance.
Make sure to confirm
Once a parking space has been booked, remember to get confirmation from the driver or other staff member of that company before making any plans with friends or family members over whether they should park near your new home. This will help avoid confusion and miscommunication if someone else ends up using your reserved parking spot.
If there are no spaces available in your area, then it might be worth contacting the council to organise a temporary parking space for you while you wait for suitable options in the area.
How to reserve a parking space for removalist vans
First and foremost, you need to make sure that the parking space is available before you book it. It’s not worth reserving a space for removalist vans if there are already people lined up to get it. So, you need to make sure that the space is vacant when you reserve it. You can also get in touch with your local council or find out information on availability from the public register of properties.
Next, decide how long you want the parking spot reserved for and what time frame your moving company needs the space for. Once this information has been decided, you can go ahead and book the spot or reserve it online at ParkingCrew, which is Australia’s largest online booking service for reserved parking spaces.

Permit information for removalists across Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane
Parking permits vary between towns and cities, with some allowing parking in designated areas. It is important for those moving in or out of their homes to check what the parking permit information is in the location they are moving to. Parking permits are issued by local government councils and require a permit to be displayed at all times in order to avoid parking fees and fines. Parking restrictions vary depending on the type of vehicle being moved, with some vehicles requiring a permit to be displayed 24/7.
Most Australian states and territories have implemented this system for removalists across the country, with only Western Australia yet to adopt this system. People moving interstate will find it much easier if they know where they can park their vehicle, as local parking rules change from location to location.
