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

With all the things you’ll have to consider when it comes to your household move, there is one thing you may not have thought about: storage. But that could become a big problem. Lots of people find it useful, if not essential, to de-clutter their house ahead of a move. Others will have to move out of their old residence before their new home is prepared for occupancy. And still others might have lots of reasons for not being ready to accept delivery of their belongings to their new residence immediately. What can they do with their possessions? They look for a place to keep it.

Many moving companies in Oklahoma City – such as 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 cost is dependent upon the moving company and the options you choose, of course.
