How to Prevent Parking Penalties

One possible roadblock you may face when attempting to move house is parking penalties. Normally your house removals London company will take the necessary steps to ensure that everything is sorted out, but if they cannot handle the task then it will delay your move and may end up incurring more costs. This happens especially during situations where there is not enough space on the road in front of the house to accommodate the lorry or van. To help speed up the process and assist the removal Man and Van London team, take a look at the space in front and determine where is the best place for the movers to load and unload. Always keep a lookout for the single and double yellow stripes on the road.

Most man and van services in London will be familiar with the process to avoid penalties, but depending on where your apartment/house is located, they may just receive a curveball that they can’t handle. Penalties can add up and result in extra costs. Whether you’re driving a private or commercial vehicle, you can unload your lorry from 11 am-6 pm and for a maximum of 20 minutes. Check carefully for the double yellow stripes on the side lane – these indicate a parking ban and you should never park in these areas.

If your residence is near a paid parking area, consider mentioning it to the removal team and adding a little extra to the cost of the rental. It can help save a lot of time and reduce the hassle involved with the loading/unloading process. Always ensure that the lorry or van is attended by at least one person, and there must be evidence of activity going on if the vehicle is parked in a single-stripe lane. Hopefully, these simple tips will help your house removals team avoid parking penalties when attempting relocation.
