Default Are U-haul cargo vans allowed on the highways, parkways, etc?

The customer service rep insists that I could even use their 10 foot truck without a problem. A friend says that this is doubtful. I'm moving from the Upper West side in Manhattan to White Plains. Also,there is no available parking in my building (waitlist - grrrr) and I'm not sure whether or not the landlord will allow me to temporarily park in the lot while I move my items. I realize that there is no overnight parking on the streets in White Plains, but what goes on during the day? I'd only be leaving it there to transport items to and from my apartment. Is this okay? Thanks!

Default No "commercial vehicle" on Parkways

Strictly speaking the answer on parkways is no. If it's a van, e.g., Econoline, you might be able to get away it, but the U-Haul graphics all over it would a red flag for cops. If it's really a truck, forget it. If a parkway cop sees you they'll go after you instantly.

I agree that I would not chance it with the U-Haul on the parkway, since the Henry Hudson has a toll plaza with a police presence. You an easily take the Deegan to the Cross Westchester, and it's not that much longer of a trip, so that's the route I'd recommend with a U-Haul.

As for parking, that depends upon the street, and what the zone says. Sometimes if there's someone to babysit the vehicle, it may not be an issue with the parking authority, but if you don't have a licensed driver with the vehicle, I'd count on a ticket as part of the cost of the move if it's the only way to load/unload.
