It's often true that the same storage unit at the same storage facility will cost significantly more or less in April than it does in November. That's because self storage is a seasonal industry. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. Sometimes called 'National Moving Day' or 'Crazy Tuesday', the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest for storage businesses and the highest point of the high season. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.
Seasonality is not particularly pronounced in Pomona, meaning that month-to-month prices vary less than they do elsewhere. But even if price changes are less of a risk in Pomona, locking in a rate is almost always a smart, safe move. Those looking for self storage in Pomona will find the lowest prices in December, with its average price of $44.33. October, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $111.75.

Which is why, in order to ensure that you go into your storage search as well informed as possible, we've gone ahead and processed the data for you.

Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. The more expansive your search, the more facilities you'll be able to compare, and the more options you'll have. You might have to spend more on gas getting out to that unit, but the savings you'll be building up could totally compensate for that. Knowing whether or not you should look in nearby cities depends on whether or not self-storage (sometimes called mini storage or public self storage) in those cities is less expensive than in Pomona. We've gone ahead and figured that out for you.
An average price of $67.58 a month for a storage unit makes Pomona the 160th most expensive city in California for self-storage, while California itself is the 9th most expensive state. In more exact terms, storage in Pomona costs an average of $23.78 less than the average storage unit in California, which goes for 91.36.
While average prices will give you a good idea of how much you should expect to spend, they don't necessarily tell us if storage is relatively affordable in that city. To give you a better idea of affordability, we've created a 'relative price' scale that estimates how expensive storage is for median income earners in that state. In California, the median income is $54,681.00 a year, which would make the average $67.58 unit in Pomona cost 1.48% of a median earner's monthly income. Compared to the price-as-percent-of-income in other California locations, Pomona ranks at the 36th percentile, making self-storage here moderately affordable.
If we measure according to the national scale and compare it to cities across the country, self-storage rates in Pomona are still relatively cheap, ranking at the 43rd percentile in terms of relative expense. Expect to pay $4.57 less than the national average of $72.15 when searching for self storage in Pomona.
Over the course of your search you'll likely be comparing a number of facilities against one another to find the right option for you. Most would agree that the more storage businesses there are to compare, the better. After all, who doesn't like options? If I'm searching for storage in Pomona, should I expect plenty of available storage facilities, or only a few?
According to our numbers, there are 8 total storage facilities in Pomona, CA. In California, the average city is home to 9 storage businesses, a whole 1 more than what's offered in Pomona, meaning you'll have fewer options in Pomona than you might elsewhere in the state. Out of the 253 cities in California, Pomona is home to only the 94th highest count of facilities, or 0.37% of the state's total. Just as Pomona has a below-average number of storage facilities for a city in California, the same is true on a national scale, where the city has 1 fewer facilities than the 9 that can be found in the average US city.
But of course, comparing Pomona to other cities in California or across the nation regardless of population tells us very little. Do the 8 self storage facilities in Pomona offer the 152,367 people living there enough extra storage space? How does Pomona compare to similarly-sized cities? For a city its size, Pomona is a bit below average when it comes to self storage facilities. Other cities in the 100,000 to 250,000 population bracket have an average 18 facilities, 10 more than the 8 on offer in Pomona. We've further substantiated Pomona's relative lack of storage space by examining its per capita count of facilities. Pomona places in the 10th percentile for self storage facilities per capita among cities across the country. That very low rank indicates that the 8 storage businesses serving the 152,367 people living in Pomona is not a very large number of facilities after all, and may mean that finding the right unit in Pomona isn't as easy a task as it is elsewhere. How does Pomona compare to other cities in California? Even when we restict the scope to other cities in its state, Pomona still only ranks at the 16th percentile for per capita storage facilities.
In discussing facilities per capita, we also feel that we should mention the fact that though Pomona's population is growing, the rest of California is growing more. Pomona's population saw a 2.8% increase in the first decade of this century, 7.2% less than the 10% increase the whole state of California experienced. The relatively few people moving to Pomona might not be generating as much demand for storage as they are in faster-growing cities in California, but keep in mind that Pomona already has few storage facilities for its size, meaning it's not quite the storage seeker's market.
