Ways of payment for a parking lot

The parking stalls should be paid before car parking itself. The payment system is described in detail here. Parking can be paid by the following means:

  •  Sending an sms to 7757. 
  •  Web-site/Mobile app*.
  • Using e-wallet VisaQiwiWallet.
  • Parking ATM.

*Muscovites appreciated this means of payment as it is easier, quicker and much moreу and much more efficient then other ways of paying. App is available for Android and Apple.


We strongly recommend you not to park illigaly in the places with a forbidding sign or on the paid parking zones without preliminary payment as the fines are rather sizable. The most modest fine bill makes up about 2500 rubles. 

You can learn more about the fines by the following ways: 

1. Free sms to 7377, indicating in the text the Cyrillic word «штраф», Number of Vehicle and Certificate. 
2. On the web site of public services
3. On the website of State Traffic Safety Inspectorate

At this evacuation of a passenger car costs 3000 rubles, 24 hours car storage on the special lot makes up 500 rubles.

Other places available for parking in Moscow

Parking in the fenced yards

If you use your car only on weekends and live in the very centre you can find a parking lot inside the fenced yard of the house you live in. Most likely the house where you are going to rent a flat is equipped by the lifting gates. 

Recently Moscow authorities adopted the resolution making for lifting gates installation in each yard. Thus all the residents of the definite house will be provided with fixed parking stalls.


Underground parking in new building

We should notify our clients that despite the impossibility of underground parking construction under historical pre-revolutionary mansions almost all the new business and premium class buildings are provided with parking stalls. Such buildings are usually equipped with guest parking on the fenced territory and with underground parking under the house.

If you reside a pre-revolutionary building pay your attention to the new houses located nearby. Probably there is one or another parking stall 'shelved' in a new houses located at hand or apply to your personal broker – he shall know if there is anything available in the neighborhoods.
