Maybe a stupid question: Are there ever any restrictions in parking your tractor in your own driveway? If it's not blocking the sidewalk or sticking out in the street or anything, is it legal? I only ask because I know A LOT of people have nothing better to do than look for things to ***** about - so if you're parked in your own driveway and your neighbor doesn't like the sight of the truck or whatever, is there anything they can do about it?

Yes. I cannot park a commercial vehicle past the side of my house must be in side or back yard

Every company is different...best be upfront with them before it's too late. Most companies are concerned about their equipment. They don't want it stolen or vandalized. Parking tickets are going to be your responsibility.

I asked my neighbors ... they just didn't want engines running all night ...

never had a problem

good luck

I can only imagine your Homeowners Association may have some rule about it. Now if you don't have an HOA, and your driveway can handle the load, you may be in luck.

Neighborly relations is another thing, though. Talk it over with them - how often you'll be parking, and for how long. Things like that.

And if you live in a northern area, like I do, you will also need a place to plug the truck in. That probably means renting a spot. A friend of mine pays $50 per month for his.

I parked my truck and trailer at a local Walmart but asked permission each time just to be safe. Then took Uber or Lyft home.

I Checked with my local city ordinance, and they played bobtail parking...always check😎😎

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Ours says you can park on the streets (bobtail) from 6am - 11pm but not in between.

I emailed my local city gov and got a response saying I was allowed to park at my apt, watch for weight restrictions on residential roads....
