Warehouse StorageWith everything else you need to think about when it comes to your household move, there’s one vital thing you may not have thought about: storage. Alas that could become a massive issue. Many folks find it desirable, if not critical, to de-clutter their residence before a move. Others must move out of their old house before their new house is prepared for occupancy. And still others might have all sorts of reasons for not being able to accept delivery of their possessions to their new house immediately. What should they do with their stuff? They look for someplace to keep it.

Many moving companies in Atlanta – like A-1 Freeman Moving Group – offer their customers several short-term and long-term storage choices. The industry term for this is “vanline” storage. Its rate is dependent upon the moving company and the options you choose, of course.
