In many cases you can park that truck...
by: Hervy

You can likely park it at the truck stop. Just ask the manager on duty. As long as you are leaving the truck and trailer they don't mind so much.

You might also find a shopping center closer to you. Read midway down this page for more details pertaining to this.

Well if someone that owns trucks cant park it in their house get out of the business. I hate owner operators and company drivers that park their trucks in the truckstop taking spaces that otr truckers need to sleep its annoying!!!!

I've gotten to places and I've see the drivers being drop off on a car like what kind of crap is that.

Just be sure to get the owners permission. Remember parking is deductible as a tax return expense. Keep those receipts, for everything, keep a log. Your tax person will know what to use and not !

Be smart !

Parking on the street and Walmart
by: Anonymous

We live in an apartment building community and my husband was told by our apartment manager that there is NO truck parking whatsoever in the parking lot.

A couple of blocks up from our apartment building is a police station and my husband even went in to ask if he could park on the street by them and a cop at the front desk told him no problem.

Well when my husband's home time was over and he went to the truck, he found a ticket on his windshield whereas all the other trucks parked near him had none. My husband went in to the police station and was told he got the ticket because no parking allowed and my husband asked why the other trucks did not get a ticket, he was told because your truck is the one that bothered us.

My husband used to park at Wal-Mart, then was told by security, he can no longer park there, no truck parking allowed. So now my husband parks his truck at one of his terminals which is 90 miles away from home, and then he takes the train to home.

Good luck to you, it seems as though a lot of people seem to have issues with trucks!

It's not up to your neighbour !! We park ours at the house all the time ! It would have to be the city , that would stop you ! Park at home , until the city tells you to move :) good luck !

Finding places to park
by: Hervy

Sure. Just let them know first that you will be leaving it for a few days. They typically don't care. But if you just leave it and they don't know and anyone notices that the truck has been sitting there without anyone coming or going they might think someone is in it dead.

Also, grocery stores and Walmart might let you park for a day or 2 if you ask.

If that doesn't work find other shopping complex with enough room for truck parking. Ask the person who has the space but don't need it if you can park there when on home time.

That would be better than driving hours or taking a bus from terminal. Maybe even the nearest truckstop is close enough to drive to.
Best of luck man.
