Permits can be issued by fax at 510-494-4751 if the transporter has an account with the City. We do not issue permits with credit cards. If someone wants a permit but they do not want to set up an account they can go through a permit agency or come to the City at 39550 Liberty Street, Second Floor, Transportation Engineering Division in person and fill out a permit. Business hours are from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, except holidays.
Police Department Involvement
A transporter must obtain City of Fremont Police Department approval/signature on the permit if a house is being transported or a convoy is planned. Please contact the Traffic Division at 510-790-6800 for details on how to secure their signature on the permit for these instances.
If a house is being transported, arrangements must be made with the Police Department in advance in case traffic control is needed. Also, check with Development Organization/Planning at First Floor, 39550 Liberty Street, to make sure they have proper permits for the delivery location. This is only if the house will be delivered to Fremont.
All transporters are required to have current auto liability insurance on file and a copy of the current auto liability insurance certificate must be forwarded to the Transportation Engineering division. The City does not require being named additional insured.
