Parking Permit in London

The temporary suspension of a parking bay reserves a specific bay for use on a specified day, by the specified vehicle for your house move.

Parking Permit

What is a parking bay suspension?

A parking bay suspension is used when works need to be carried out or when the bay is needed for access. Normal parking controls are suspended. Parking bays cannot be suspended to gain preferential parking or for other non-essential reasons.

Parking Suspension

Arranging a suspension for Domestic removals.

Arranging a suspension well in advance will mean it is more likely nearby spaces will be available. However, please note that there is an exemption allowing vehicles to stop when continuously engaged in a property move and a suspension might not be required.

Most of London Borough councils require to arrange Parking Bay Suspensions in advance. Depending which council area you live period to arrange may be from 24 hours to a 3 weeks so we recommend you don't leave it for the last minute.

London Man Van recommend that you make sure whether permission will be needed for parking during your house move or you think parking would be a problem on the move day.
