    Hi everyone! I hope this is the right spot, and is okay to post. I, myself am not a trucker, but my boyfriend is. He just started with Hirschbach and he has to bring trailer home with him during home time. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere near west palm beach to park a truck and trailer? and around home much it costs. Thanks in advance!

    595 truck stop is the only choice and kind of expensive.will make the carrier psy for the demn parking or park it on 95 north bord so it can be towed heading up towards georgia line.

    There is free parking at truck stops in Ft. Pierce, but I would need someone to drive me back and forth and thats too much to ask of family. It may be an option for you guys though.

    South Florida property values are high and that far south isnt a major trucking lane for OTR so its not hard to see why truck stops are scarce.

    If you are in palm beach $5/ day MLK and Congress I think it's a marathon/ fleet pride. You can't miss it, on the northeast corner. $15/ day at the marathon in pompano. If you hauling reefer park at the market.

    Wherever you park it, don't leave anything in it of value or that can't be replaced. Odds of the truck not being there when you return are much higher in south Florida then most other regions. Don't ask me why.
