Roadside Vehicle Sales

There are very few places on the roadside where you can legally park a vehicle with a "For Sale" sign on it.

To find out where you can park a vehicle for sale please call Tauranga City Council on 07 577 7000.

Below is a list of roads where you cannot park a vehicle for sale either on the road or on the grass verge.

Vehicles can’t be parked within 30 metres of any intersection of any road on the prohibited list.
