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 is one thing you may not have thought about: storage. But that might be a major issue. Many people find it good, if not essential, to de-clutter their residence before a move. Others need to move out of their old home ahead of when their new home is prepared for occupancy. And still others could have all kinds of reasons for not being ready to accept delivery of their things to their new home right away. What can they do with their belongings? They find someplace for storage.

A lot of moving companies in San Antonio – like A-1 Freeman Moving Group – can provide their customers different short-term and long-term storage options. The industry term for this is “vanline” storage. Its cost depends on the moving company and the options you choose, of course.

But a lot of people decide to find their own storage solutions, apart from those of their moving company in San Antonio. It’s a good idea to look at what vanline storage gives you versus what you will get with self-storage. The following chart will help you do that.



Looking at the pros and cons of vanline storage versus self-storage, one will probably give the advantage to vanline storage through your professional moving company in San Antonio. Your circumstances, though, may lead you to a different decision. However the decision is yours. And it’s well worth considering as early as possible while planning your move.
