Default Where to park while driveway is painted

We are closing on the 4th of Sept. I will be coming down and staying at the house so I can be there to coordinate contractors coming in to do upgrades like Plantation Shutters, Spectrum, Nova water filters, etc...

After most of the upgrades are finished Decorative Concrete of Florida will be coming out the following week to clean, seal and paint our drive, garage Lanai, etc.

What do people do with their car while they have their driveway and garage sealed and painted? I understand it will take two days (after it is cleaned.)

Do you just park on the street? Do you ask neighbors to let you park in their driveways?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks,

Frank

Parking on the street is probably your best option so when you need your car it is right there.
If a neighbor is kind enough to let you park in their driveway that would be good also, but it might not work for them if they need to get in and out of their garage.
Leaving your car in a parking lot would be a pain because you would need someone to take you to your car.

Street parking is probably the best solution and it would only be for two days.

Thank you, that seemed to me to be the answer, but I was concerned about the neighborhood watch getting excited about a new car parking for a couple days. Is there some "standard" way to let them know it's mine?

Is there even neighborhood watch in McClure yet?

Here I’ve seen folks park their car in the garage, but put their cart on the lawn. They just use their cart for two days.

I am having the garage cleaned, sealed and painted also, so I can't leave the car in it - sadly.

And I was going to leave my car at home and rent a cart for a month, but I don't think a cart work be much use in McClure right now, since about the only place I could go would be Finney Grill

You could park on the street or in a neighbor’s driveway with their permission of course.

Yes there is a neighborhood watch presence in McClure. I doubt you will have an issue out here on the island. Our connections to the mainland are coming.

Why wouldn't you just park on the street? There are no laws that say you can't park on the street.

Absolutely, connections are coming, I am perfectly happy waiting for them, I was just mentioning that I was considering a cart to ge around and parking in my yard, then realized I couldn't get anywhere for shopping yet - lol!

Eagerly awaiting connection to Brownwood so we can buy a cart and get with the TV LifeStyle!

Well, that is why I am asking the question, since other than temporary for deliveries or lawn care I never see people parking their cars in the street I did't know if there was a law.

And also the concern that if I leave it parked in the road for 2 days, neighborhood patrol might've it towed thinking it was abandoned, or call the police to report it.

So, I thought asking here first might be a reasonable thing to do.
