One of the biggest challenges facing house removals in London is parking at your old home address and also the property that you are moving into.
If parking is not considered then our London removal team may need to park far away from your home or office and which could result in parking fines and your house move or business relocation could take much longer than originally planned. Depending on which borough you live in, nearby loading bays or single yellow lines for parking may only be available for 20 to 40 minutes. If either of the properties are on a red route you will need to check when the enforcement is in place.
If your property doesn't have its own driveway or there is no parking available in your apartment block or there are parking restrictions outside your property then organising a parking suspension is the best solution to avoid parking fines.
Parking Suspension or Parking Dispensation in London
Each London borough has different arrangements for organising parking suspensions or yellow line dispensations to allow loading and unloading at your property. London parking suspension charges depends on each borough, each road, duration and the number of parking spaces that may be required.
Parking suspensions allow you to reserve a parking space specifically for your use in a controlled parking zone or parking bay. Suspended parking bays are marked out by yellow warning notices which should have been put in place approximately 10 days before the suspension start date.
Parking dispensations allow parking of our removals vehicle on a yellow line or a parking bay for a set time period. However, a dispensation does not guarantee a parking space.
Arranging parking for your London House removal
To make your move completely stress free, I Like to Move It Move It can organise your removal parking for you. This can be a confusing process if you have never arranged it before. We arrange parking suspension for London House moves all the time, so we understand the process for each council and will contact them directly to obtain the permits. However, we do need enough time, as some councils can take up to 20 days to process the parking arrangements. Simply let us know about your parking situation at the time of booking. Please note that Red routes cannot be suspended so the move will have to be outside of the restriction hours.
If you need to arrange the London removal parking suspension yourself, then we have provided a list of the most common boroughs:
Kensington & Chelsea
Hammersmith & Fulham
