Reserve a parking spot for your moving truck
A permit for your moving truck is not required, but it guarantees you a parking spot to avoid parking tickets. You have two options:
- The street space you want to reserve needs to be an actual parking spot. The spot can be residential, commercial, metered, or something else, but it must be legal to park a vehicle there.
- From August 31 to September 2, some common moving locations are blocked off to allow for moving truck dropoffs. They don't require a permit.
- If you want a permit in the North End from July 1 - August 31, you must have permission from the City before applying online. Please call the Boston Transportation Department at 617-635-2560.
- You must come in person for permits for overnight storage or moving containers. You also need to give us a letter of authorization from the company that owns those containers. The company must hold a bond with the City.
