Storage Options: Moving Company VS. Self-Storage

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

With everything else you’ll have to remember when it comes to your household move, there’s one thing you may not have thought about: storage. But that could become a big issue. Many folks find it good, if not critical, to de-clutter their home ahead of a move. Others need to move out of their old home before their new house is ready for occupancy. And still others might have all sorts of reasons for not being able to accept delivery of their belongings to their new residence right away. What should they do with their possessions? They look for a place to store it.

Many moving companies in El Paso – such as A-1 Freeman Moving Group – can provide their customers a variety of short-term and long-term storage options. The industry term for this is “vanline” storage. Its rate varies based on the moving company and the options you pick, of course.

Yet many people choose to locate their own storage solutions, aside from those of their moving company in El Paso. It is smart to look at what vanline storage provides versus what you will get with self-storage. The following chart might help you do that.



Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of vanline storage versus self-storage, one will likely give the advantage to vanline storage through your professional moving company in El Paso. Your situation, though, could lead you to a different conclusion. But the choice is yours. And it’s well worth considering sooner rather than later in your move planning. Need a bit of help deciding?
