Storage Possibilities: Moving Company VS. Self-Storage

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Warehouse StorageWith everything else you need to think about about your household move, there’s one vital thing you might not have thought about: storage. However that may be a big obstacle. Many people find it desirable, if not necessary, to de-clutter their residence ahead of a move. Others need to move out of their old house ahead of when their new residence is ready for occupancy. And still others could have all kinds of reasons for not being ready to accommodate delivery of their possessions to their new residence right away. What do they do with their possessions? They look for a place to store it.

Most moving companies in Dallas – such as A-1 Freeman Moving Group – offer their customers different short-term and long-term storage choices. The industry term for this is “vanline” storage. Its price varies based on the moving company and the options you select, of course.

But many people decide to locate their own storage solutions, aside from those of their moving company in Dallas. It’s a good idea to think about what vanline storage gives you versus what you get with self-storage. The following chart might help you do that.
