Earlsfield is no different to any other London area in that parking can be tricky unless you know where to go, and traffic is chaos at rush hour. Here are some handy hints to make moving day easier:
• Watch out for parking restrictions. Wandsworth Council has designated parking zones (viewable on their website) so it could be worth doing some research in advance to avoid being stung by parking enforcement.
