Need to reserve spot for movers if in private property?

We're close to the pick-up date where the movers will come to load the 20' container with our stuff. I am wondering if we must do any paperwork for the movers to park the truck for a few hours.
We live in a building which has a private lane that people living in the building can access. Should we get approval form our landlord, or it is not necessary?

Tried looking for this info here on EF or elsewhere with no luck. Anyone with experience please help....!

I think that the best and easiest thing to do would be to check with your Landlord and the moving company.

You ought to get explicit permission:

Public ground: Police (and who most likely would have given you permission to cordon off / reserve space on public ground for the movers to park at!)

Private ground: Landlord (or representing administration, or caretaker). If that private lane has one of these removable / foldable blocks, you would have to talk to them anyway for the key.

The moving company should have told you as part of their service package.

Re: Need to reserve spot for movers if in private property?

Either you, or the movers, need to visit the town police in Morges and arrange for them to put out the no parking signs. The police usually need about 3 days notice and charge a fee. They might need to know the length of the delivery truck (70 feet plus?).

http://www.police-region-morges.ch/en/

I expect it is this office
Other Police Departments (Management, fines, lost&found, trade activities, parking, traffic signs et local Court), Place Saint-Louis 2:

I have just gone back and read the post again, and as it is a private road, you should speak to the landlord. How are other owners going to reach their property if the truck is blocking the lane?

Maybe the truck will have to park on the public road and they must carry all the stuff to your home?

Monday through Friday: 8 am to 12 pm and 1.30 pm 5 pm

Re: Need to reserve spot for movers if in private property?

As Sbrinz said, since this is a private road you want to talk to the landlord. The less effort required by him the more likely he're to agree to what you propose, so I'd offer to inform the people in your building (where you just put up a post in advance[the earlier the better], say when there'll be a van, the road may be partially blocked [or whatever applies] and to please excuse the inconvenience)

Additionally, if it's a big van you may need to make sure access to the private road is available, ask the moving company what they need. For this case you may also need the police, e.g. to have them put up no-parking signs on the public road leading to your private road.
