Park PODS in Philadelphia?

PODS/U-Haul Box/ABF U-Pack etc. - Any advice on the feasibility/advisability of using a service like this for moving to a Philadelphia apartment without a driveway? I'm particularly concerned about parking the storage container on the street while unloading it.

Can a POD/U-Box be parked on the street in University City (specifically 45th street)? We'd move on a weekend, when our block seems to have at least some available parking. So the 2-hour non-resident parking limit shouldn't be an issue. But I don't want to break any laws, nor do I want to completely inconvenience my neighbors before I've even met them. Basically, is this feasible? Is it a crazy idea? I'd appreciate any advice about making this work.
My partner and I are moving to Philadelphia from upstate NY. Our apartment is about 700 sq feet and we have mostly small furniture that we can move ourselves, so hiring movers seems a bit excessive (although I'm pricing it out anyway). Neither one of us wants to drive a UHaul truck for 5 hours, let alone park it in Philadelphia, but we'll do that if necessary.
Thanks for your help!
