Parking in Islington for your move
We know parking in London can sometimes be a bit tricky, but don’t let parking scare you for your move. We’re more than happy to guide you through this and make it as easy as possible. However this information is here to be useful and let you know as much as possible in advance.
All council’s in London have to allow 20 minutes for loading and unloading removals in resident bays or yellow lines (although loading restrictions may apply). However, the majority of removals typically take longer than the permitted time, therefore, we will need to organise one of the following below.
Please note that the below information does not apply to Islington estates. If you are moving to or from an estate, contact your local area housing office for advice about getting a temporary estate parking permit.
Suspension Parking on removal day
This is where parking in a resident permit zone outside your property can be reserved for a certain amount of time. Yellow signs will be displayed on the posts to mark out clearly the space reserved and only registration plates assigned to the booking can park there. The cost for a resident to suspend a bay for sing day parking is £92.65 and £29.50 for each subsequent parking space per day. To make the suspension enforceable you are required to provide 14 days notice, this means that if an alternative vehicle is parked within a space, enough warning has been granted to get the vehicle removed.
Parking on packing day
As we do not need to park directly outside the property on the packing day, it is more cost efficient to display a visitor vouchers or an e-voucher, however, if you do not have access to these then a parking permission is your next best option. The parking permission allows you to park in a resident permit holder bays or on single yellow lines at any time (providing those loading restrictions are not in force) Monday – Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The cost of a parking permission is £25 per vehicle, per day.
Permission to park anywhere in resident zone or single yellow line
If you can simply park on the road, there are a few things to consider; Are you able to reserve enough space for the removal vehicle to park close enough? If not, then a suspension may be the best option however, it is still important to display a valid permit. If you think you can save enough space, then please read the following:
If you do not have any access to vouchers to display in the vehicle to park in a resident bay or we need to load on a single yellow for 20 minutes, then most councils charge for a ‘permission to park’ where you can load and unload on a single yellow or resident bay, or park whilst packing. However, Islington is slightly different as in most cases you can park near your property for domestic removals for free. Liveried vehicles (vehicles that clearly show the removal companies branding and logo) can park for an unlimited amount of time as long as the following is adhered:
- Loading must be continuous
- You must be parked on a single yellow line or in a residents bay
- There must be no other loading restriction in place
If at any stage you think there will be breaks in the loading and unloading then we suggest you purchase a permission to park within a bay and not on a yellow line.
Have red lines outside your property?
Although these roads may be within your council boundaries, they will be managed by Transport for London. Red routes make up 5% of London’s road, but carry 30% of traffic so a specific set of rules apply. Please click here for details on the options that apply.
