In most cases:
Liveried vehicles (vehicles clearly showing the removal companies branding and logo) can park for an unlimited amount of time as long as the following is observed:
- loading has to be continuous
- you must be parked on a single yellow line or in a resident’s bay.
- there must be no other loading restriction in place.
Un-liveried vehicles must observe the same rules, but they have additional restrictions on time:
- Before 11am they can park for as long as they like.
- After 11 am they can park for up to 40 minutes
Please see our maps to see the types of parking that will be available near your address.
The above does not apply on 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.
If you think there will be breaks in the loading and unloading then you should purchase a permission to park and park in a bay, not on a yellow line.
There are also short stay bays on most residential streets in Islington. See our maps to see where these are located
If you wish to guarantee a space close to your home you should consider suspending a bay, bearing in mind we need at least 14 days’ notice for this.
