I am moving next week from a single family home on a block with several 2 flats and med apt buildings. How do I get space in front of my house for a moving truck? I was told you can get temp parking permits from the alderman, but apparently not in my hood (ald laurino - albany park). I don't know all the people who park on the street so I can't ask them personally.

help! I've never hired a moving company before so I don't know how it is done.

thanks

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to get parking passes from your alderman. Where did you hear that? Go directly to the office with your lease or a utility bill to prove your address and then let them know the day and approximate hours that the truck will be parked.

The signs, however, do not mean diddly squat legally. The police will not enforce them. Put them up approximately 72 hours before your move but try to park your vehicle in the center to save the spot the night before. If there's still snow on the ground lawn chairs will work too!

I almost got them when I moved last year but decided not to.

Trust me. The moving company's know how to get by just fine without them. I was unloaded in the middle of the day on a busy street. People just drive around the truck.

If you do a search there are a few threads on this board regarding the passes.

I'd welcome you to Albany Park, but I'm a newbie here too (2 weeks now)
