Do I Need a Permit for a Garage or Estate Sale?

April 9, 2014 03:16 PM



Any resident planning to hold a garage sale must obtain a Garage Sale Permit which is provided to Park Ridge residents free of charge. To apply, simply visit the City's website at and search "Garage Sale Permit" in the upper right corner of the webpage.   When completeing the online Garage Sale Application, you will be asked to provide the City with your name, address, telephone number and the date(s) of your sale.  After you have completed the application, you will be able to print your permit immediately which must be prominently displayed in a front window of your home on the day(s) of your sale. 
The permit limitation is three per year, not to exceed three days at each occurrence, and your sale must be held between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  Conducting a garage sale without a permit may result in a fine.  Indoor Estate Sales do not require a permit.
Advertising signs are to be placed on private property only. Signs are not allowed at street corners or on public property. Please call the city at 847/318-5464 with any questions.
