Parking to move home

You can park outside your home when you are moving home free of charge

Liveried vehicles

These vehicles are for hire. They must clearly show the company branding and logo. Removal company vehicles and/or hire vehicles 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

These vehicles must observe the same rules as liveried vehicles, but they have additional restrictions in place:

  • Before 11.00am un-liveried vehicles can park for an unlimited time  
  • After 11.00am  you can park for up to 40 minutes

Please use our maps to view the types of parking that are available near your address.

Estate parking

The above does not apply on Islington estates. If you are moving to or from an estate, contact Housing Services for advice about getting a temporary estate parking permit. 

Still concerned?

If you think there will be breaks in the loading and unloading or your removal vehicle 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.  Use 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 to process your application in time.
