Some communities are home to plenty of storage businesses, offering those looking for storage a wide variety of choices, while other communities are less-well served and may need to expand their search into neighboring cities and suburbs. How many facilties are operating in Perris?
Analysts at SelfStorage.com report that there are an estimated 4 storage facilities located in the Perris area. On the state level, the average city in California is home to approximately 9 self-storage businesses, meaning that Perris, with 5 less than that, offers few facilties relative to the rest of its state. Compared to the rest of the cities in California, Perris ranks quite low in terms of number of facilities (161st out of all 253 cities), with a meager 0.19% share of the total. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in California, Perris also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 5 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 Perris to the rest of California. Are the 4 storage facilities providing the 56,153 people living in Perris with enough storage space? As it turns out, Perris is significantly below average versus storage facilities in similarly-sized cities. The average number of facilities in its population bracket (cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000) is 11, while Perris has 7 less with its total 4 storage facilites. Perris may indeed be short on storage space. We've further verified Perris's relative lack of storage space by examining its per capita count of facilities. Perris places in the 16th percentile for self storage facilities per capita among cities across the country. That very low rank indicates that the 4 storage businesses serving the 56,153 people living in Perris is not a very large number of facilities after all, and may mean that finding the right unit in Perris isn't as easy a task as it is elsewhere. If we restrict our scope down to the state level, we get similar results: for cities in California, Perris only ranks in the 25th percentile, meaning that Perris has little per capita storage space even compared to other cities in its state.
Finally, it also seems that Perris is undergoing a high level of population growth. According to the US Census, Perris grew by 54.2% from 2000 to 2010, 44.2% more than the 10% growth California saw. Add that high rate of population growth to a low number of storage businesses per capita and you have a recipe for some very high levels of storage demand in Perris, accompanied by high prices and low availability.
If you're new to searching for self storage in Perris you might not know what kind of prices should be expected. With rental rates being as dependent upon the facility's location as they are, comparing prices at facilities in Perris with those in other cities you might have rented a storage unit in in the past will do you little good. That's why, in order to help you go into your storage search as knowledgeable as possible, we've had our storage analysts go over all the data on Perris we have available.

The demand for storage being as highly seasonal as it is, moving between highs and lows throughout the year, the season you decide to book a unit during can have as much affect on the price you pay as any other factor. The low season generally lasts from October through March, with prices kicking up in April and hitting their high from May to September. The high season is considered to be in full swing on National Moving Day, also called 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day after Memorial Day. Smaller unit sizes are often more strongly affected by seasonality, as college students make up a decent portion of those moving in the summer and tend to book 5x5 and 5x10 units.
Perris is particularly affected by seasonal swings, seeing a much wider fluctuation in price than most cities. This makes it particularly important to find a unit at a good, low price, then to lock in that price for the duration of your stay. Your chances of getting a low price on a storage unit in Perris are highest during November, when the average rental rate drops to a low $43. Your chances are lowest during January, which with an average price of $200 is the most expensive time to book a unit.
Just like real estate prices, prices on storage can be totally different in different parts of the same city. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. However, if self-storage (often called mini storage or public self storage) in Perris is relatively cheap for the area then searching farther afield might do little good. So how do prices in Perris stack up to the rest of the state?

But average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage is in a given city, as money goes further in some states than it does in others. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Perris storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Perris is $200 and the median income in California is $54,681.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 4.39% of a median earner's monthly paycheck.
