Seattle is a nightmare trying to locate parking in a 100 mile area.

When you ask about "secure truck parking", what are wanting to do? Do you have a semi-truck + trailer to leave alone for a while? Or as safe place to park for a few days? Or what?

Unless you have a High Value Load (that's a technical term), you should be able to lock and leave your truck at a busy truck stop for a day or so.

I'm needing to park my truck & trailer for at least 7 days at a time(home time) No truck stops.....

Helpful to know what your HOME AREA is.

Example - here in SoFla, an O/O friend of mine has a place he parks his FB rig at, nights and weekends, that rents spots for $15 a day. We also have the 595 TRUCK STOP, that rents short/long term in a large yard.

I doubt any company is going to let you sit on a load for 7 days - so I'm assuming you will be EMPTY when you park for that long.

There are likely a number of local storage/parking options - none of them are probably going to be FREE.

I'll be taking home time in either the seattle/tacoma or alburqerque areas. I have bought homes in both areas. Just needing storage for a semi truck & trailer(empty) for my 7 days off.

I would locate a truck stop with paid, reserved parking and contact the manager with your plans. You may get a reduced rate per day.

After 1500 there is no parking in the Seattle area. There is a TA in North Bend which is 25 miles outside Seattle on 90. I tried to get a spot there at 1600 and there was not even a paid spot. I ended up parking at an old weigh station 5 miles west of there. That was the only time I ran past my 14. There’s not much in Seattle.
