    Look for a storage facility that has automobile parking. They might work out a deal with you to park the tractor and/or trailer on a regular (monthly?) basis.

    look on craigslist or other sites that list rentals and such, there were several on cl in NH when I was looking. I ended up renting a spot from a family friend in the bidnes, its 100 a month wether im there or not, but I don't have to worry bout it.

    as to the "its there junk...wha-wha-wha" crowd, you are correct in that you don't have to pay....just work somewhere else

    You might have to go out a little to find a spot. In the city its hard. Try out in west Seneca or boston. I know its rough. There is a half abandoned plaza in south buffalo where I found a few trucks parking...sorry don't remember street...around Casanova park area.

    What about the Truckstop by the airport and mall in Buffalo. I parked my truck at the commuter lot in Springville on weekends when ii had a girlfriend up there. Check with the truck dealers, they have paid parking quite often.
    Here in Orlando, there is paid parking all over. Heck even the TCI tire shop has paid parking. They will tow you in a second from a shopping center though. I can't imagine a trucking company not reimbursing parking fees to park their truck securely.

    There is a truck stop in Buffalo...Jim's Truck Plaza..it's off I90 in the area of Walden Ave..I'm not sure of the exit. If that doesn't work, and you can drive to pick him up/drop him back off, he can park at the truckstops in Pembroke...there is a TA & a Flying J there.

    Thank You!! I tried Jim's on Walden, but they said that you can't park overnight unless your inside the truckstop, but I will try the 2 places in Pembroke. Thanks again!!
