Storage Possibilities: Moving Company VS. Self-Storage

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Warehouse StorageWith all the things you’ve got to think about when it comes to your household move, there is one important thing you might not have thought about: storage. But that might become a major obstacle. A lot of folks find it useful, if not critical, to de-clutter their house before a move. Others need to move out of their old residence before their new residence is ready for occupancy. And still others have all sorts of reasons for not being ready to accommodate delivery of their things to their new residence straight away. What should they do with their possessions? They locate someplace to store it.

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

But lots of people choose to find their own storage solutions, aside from those of their moving company in Denver. It’s smart to think about what vanline storage provides versus what you will get with self-storage. The chart below might help you do that.
