For the courtesy of residents moving in or out, temporary no-parking “moving signs” may be picked up at our office for no charge. Then simply write the date and hours of the move on these paper signs and post using string or, in the event of rain, plastic wrap on nearby trees and light poles adjacent to the street section where the moving truck/van would be parked for loading & unloading. These moving signs should be posted 48 to 72 hours prior to the moving date. Note that these signs are non-enforceable.
For enforceable signs, moving companies (or residents) can have TOW ZONE no-parking moving signs posted by the Chicago Department of Transportation. Apply for these in room 904 of City Hall (312-744-4652) far enough ahead of the moving date to allow the City to post the signs a few days prior to the moving date.
