As you see above, the designated parking location for a trailer is at a tight corner between the ramp and another trailer. In order to reverse park our trailer, we need proper space for reversing as well as turning back the trailer.

Since it is not easy to manoeuvre a large trailer due to its large radius, many players often find it hard to park their deliveries and instead choose to skip it completely.

Now move your truck to another location so you can easily reverse and park the trailer in the highlighted location.

You can switch to the interior camera by pressing 1 and use the mirrors if you are not comfortable with the exterior camera. Make sure that your truck is completely straight before you start reversing it.

To make your trailer in the direction that you want, you will need to steer the truck in the opposite direction. For instance, if you want the trailer to go left then you will need to steer your truck towards the right and vice versa.

You can also switch to the top-down camera by pressing 3 to get a better view of your entire truck and trailer so you can steer properly. In case your trailer starts gliding away then you need to steer in the direction that it is leaning towards.

Once you manage to get the trailer in the correct direction, you will need to slowly reverse your truck to ensure that the trailer doesn’t change its direction again.

If you have almost managed to park the trailer but the highlighted area is still not turning green then you need to slightly readjust your position to properly park the trailer. Just move your truck a bit forward and start reversing slowly to readjust the position of the trailer. Press Y to detach the trailer from the truck once you are done and the delivery will be complete.

That’s it, now go ahead and follow these tips to get the perfect parking for every delivery!
