Planning a Move in San Francisco

SAN RAFAEL − Moving is usually a complex undertaking, but when it comes to moving in downtown San Francisco, there are some additional factors to consider. One of these is parking, which tends to be limited in highly concentrated urban areas. To avoid problems, get your parking situated ahead of time by reserving a spot for moving day. You can do this by calling the City of San Francisco and purchasing a temporary parking permit. The day before your move, the city will send someone to post signs stating the reservation times, which will keep the space available for your movers.

If you live in a high-rise apartment or condo, it’s also a good idea to reserve an elevator for moving day. Having an elevator specifically dedicated to your move will simplify the process and make it easy to move things in (or out) of the building. Contact the building management to arrange this, preferably well in advance to ensure availability.
