Whether you live in close to Lake Merritt or in an apartment downtown Oakland, you should realize that moving around Oakland can be a bit like moving around a maze replete with obstacles and challenges. Oakland has some of the most confusing intersections in the Bay Area, and parking can be a nightmare if you don’t plan and prepare. If you’re a local and you haven’t had nightmares about the 27th street on Northgate intersection then you probably haven’t travelled around the Oakland much. That’s okay, read the rest of the article and feel comfortable moving within Oakland. These tips can help you make your move smooth. And of course, All in Moving Systems stands ready to assist you with whatever moving needs you have.
Here is a helpful list to guide you with your Oakland moving needs:
- Secure a parking obstruction permit (if necessary) by visiting:
Oakland City Hall – Permit Center
1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza
Oakland, CA 94612
- Ask your building manager or home-owners association about regulations related to parking in and around your property. Remember that parking tickets and moving violations are the responsibility of the customer to pay if one is issued to the company’s moving vehicles doing business with you.
- Realize that moving trucks can be up to 40 feet long from front to end, which is about 2.5 times the size of a regular pickup truck. With the walk-boards and the tailgate room needed, that adds another 10 to 15 feet of space. All of these are factors in how much space needs to be obtained.
