Moving Trailer Parking

U-Pack Trailer Parking Requirements

One of the most important tasks to take care of before moving day is securing safe, legal parking for the moving trailer. You’ll need to arrange for parking on both ends of the move, so any necessary parking permits should be obtained in advance. Most moves require parking for 3 business days.

To park the trailer, we’ll need approximately:

  • 40 feet of space in length (for the trailer and the ramp)
  • 10 feet of space in width
  • 14 feet of overhead clearance

The area should be a solid, level surface clear of obstacles such as low hanging trees and power lines. The trailer can’t be parked in fire lanes, in front of fire hydrants or the wrong way on a one-way street.

Alternative Parking Solutions

Some locations may not meet the requirements for overnight trailer parking. In these cases, you can:

  • Move in a ReloCube. This moving container is large enough to hold one room of furnishings, but small enough to fit into a single parking space. Reserve just one or as many as you need. Get a quote to compare prices.
  • Load/Unload at a Service Center. Instead of having the equipment brought to your door, you can load and unload at a nearby service center location. This solves parking issues and helps you save!
  • Request a Live Load. In some large cities, it’s possible to avoid overnight parking. Live loads require you to load in just a few hours.
