About how much should I expect self storage businesses in Benicia to charge per month for my storage unit?

Searching storage in Benicia without knowing how much a unit should cost is no way to go about finding a good price.

To prevent you from going into your storage search in the dark, the analysts at SelfStorage.com have prepared the numbers you need to know.

This average does include all storage unit sizes, which means that it should be taken with a grain of salt. You can easily end up paying up to or exceeding twice as much money for the larger units than the smaller sizes. Self storage in Benicia comes in these standard sizes: 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and 10x30. Here are the average monthly rental rates for each size:

How many options are there in terms of different storage facilities in Benicia, CA?

Finding the unit you need at the price you want has everything to do with what's available in your area, with more facilities offering more options. When it comes to the number of facilities operating in Benicia, how many options are available?

Analysts at SelfStorage.com report that there are an estimated 5 storage facilities located in the Benicia area. For a city in California, Benicia is home to relatively few storage facilities. The average city in California has 9 facilities listed on our network, a full 4 more than what can be found in Benicia. Benicia accounts for a mere 0.23% of facilities listed in California and only ranks as the 253 largest city out of the state's 253 in terms of number of facilities. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in California, Benicia also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 4 fewer than the national average of 9, to be precise.

If we're making comparisons between cities, however, we're missing out on some important insights if we don't factor population in, even if we're simply comparing Benicia to the rest of California. Are the 5 facilities in Benicia sufficient at supplying the 26,180 people who call it home with enough extra storage space? For a city its size, Benicia is a bit below average when it comes to self storage facilities. Other cities in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket have an average 7 facilities, 2 more than the 5 on offer in Benicia. When we next look at Benicia's actual per person self-storage facility count, our former conclusions seem to be corroborated beyond any reasonable doubt: the Benicia community has few facilities for its size. The 5 facilities in Benicia for its 26,180 residents rank it in the 48th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across America. That's a relatively-low rank, and seems to indicate that there's not a whole lot of extra storage space in Benicia for those 26,180 people living there. However, though Benicia is below the 50th percentile at the national level, in terms of cities in California it falls in the 77th percentile, meaning it has a large amount of storage space per capita for its state.

To conclude our discussion of storage facilities per capita, it's worth noting that Benicia's population has been dwindling over the past few years. In the decade span between the 2000 and 2010 censuses, Benicia experienced a 2.8% decrease in inhabitants. During that same span, however, the state of California took on 10% more people. That low rate of growth relative to its state, combined with its high number of facilities per person, ought to make Benicia a storage renter's paradise.

Is self storage in Benicia cheap?

As storage prices are closely tied to local real estate prices, it makes sense that rental rates can often differ substantially even in neighboring cities. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Benicia than in other nearby cities, we can make it easier for you to decide whether or not to take the time on a wider search.

To give you a better idea of what this means, Benicia's average price is $9.76 less than the state average of $91.36.

An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. A storage unit in Benicia will on average cost 1.79% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in California is $54,681.00. As a percentage of the local median income, storage costs rank at the 53rd percentile among cities in California, making Benicia more expensive than most cities.

Are self storage prices in Benicia, CA lower in certain seasons? Should I book my unit in the spring, summer, fall or winter to get the best deal?

Peaking in May through September, when most people in the United States move, and dropping to their lowest in October through March, when far fewer people move homes, storage prices and closely linked to moving patterns. Memorial Day weekend marks the definitive end to the low season. The following Tuesday is often so busy that it's popularly known as 'Crazy Tuesday' within the self storage industry.
