For residents moving in or out, our office provide non-enforceable “courtesy” no-parking moving signs which may be picked up at our office (M-F 9-5) for no charge. The date and hours of the move would be written on the these paper signs and then the resident would post them 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.

For enforceable signs, moving companies can have TOW ZONE no-parking moving signs posted by the Chicago Department of Transportation. The application process is now handled online at:  https://ipi.cityofchicago.org/profile   [instructions:  https://ipi.cityofchicago.org/Resources/Information/CDOT/DOT_Occupy_Public_Right_of_Way_Permit.pdf
CDOT permit office 312-744-4652]. Note the application should be made far enough ahead of the moving date to allow the City to post the signs a few days prior to the moving date.
