Storage Options: Moving Company VS. Self-Storage

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

With everything you need to consider when it comes to your household move, there’s one thing you might not have thought about: storage. Alas that could become a major problem. Many folks find it desirable, if not necessary, to de-clutter their home ahead of a move. Others will have to move out of their old house ahead of when their new residence is prepared for occupancy. And still others could have all sorts of reasons for not being able to accommodate delivery of their things to their new home right away. What do they do with their stuff? They find a place to keep it.

A lot of moving companies in Killeen – like A-1 Freeman Moving Group – offer their customers a variety of short-term and long-term storage selections. The industry term for this is “vanline” storage. Its rate varies based on the moving company and the options you pick, of course.

But many people decide to locate their own storage solutions, different from those of their moving company in Killeen. It is a good idea to compare what vanline storage gives you versus what you get with self-storage. The chart below will help you do that.



Comparing the pros and cons of vanline storage versus self-storage, one will likely give the advantage to vanline storage through your professional moving company in Killeen. Your considerations, however, might lead you to a different conclusion. Yet the option is yours. And it is well worth pondering early on in your move planning. Need some help deciding?
