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. Storage prices generally reach their peak during the period from May to September, coinciding with moving season. The single busiest day of the high season is typically National Moving Day, also called 'Crazy Tuesday' by storage facility operators for the amount of activity they see that day, which is the day after Memorial Day. If you're looking for a storage unit in a location with a large student population, be aware that your high season might see an even greater lift in prices than elsewhere, as students often book a large number of units during the summer.
The high season isn't as relatively high, nor the low season as low, in Temecula, where according to our data seasonality has a lesser effect on storage prices. Even though you shouldn't have to worry as much about your rates changing later in the year, it's always best to lock in your rate with the facility if possible.

About how many storage facilties are serving the Temecula area?
16 storage facilities in Temecula, CA are listed on SelfStorage.com's facility network. Other California cities have an average of 9 facilities on our network, 7 less than Temecula, which leads us to conclude that Temecula offers a moderately-high number of facilities. In fact, Temecula's 16 facilities give it the 28th-highest count in the state out of all 253 cities. It's home to a surprising 0.74% of all facilities in California. And Temecula doesn't just have a lot of storage facilities for its state, either: it also surpasses the national average of 9 facilities per city by 7.
Of course, simply comparing cities irrespective of their various populations tells us very little about these cities, even when we're comparing Temecula to other cities in California. Temecula, CA has approximately 98,876 inhabitants. Do the 16 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? Cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 average 11 storage facilities, 5 fewer than Temecula's 16, which leads us to conclude that Temecula has a decent amount of storage space for a city its size. One might well argue that comparing Temecula to cities of a like size doesn't necessarily show that there are a great number of facilities for the size of its population, and that a better measure would be facilities per capita. And indeed, per capita data seems to have opposed our findings. On a self-storage facilities per-person basis, Temecula ranks in the 41st percentile among cities across the United States. In other words, there's not exactly a ton of extra storage space for the 98,876 people living there. Compared to other cities in California, on the other hand, Temecula doesn't seem so lacking in storage facilities per capita. In the scope of its state, Temecula ranks in the 68th percentile.
We can't feel satisfied concluding our look at facilities per capita without mentioning the fact that Temecula is seeing some major population growth. The city saw 43.9% more people move there from 2000-2010, a whole 33.9% more growth than the 10% California in total saw. But of course, a surging population isn't the only reason to think that storage in Temecula might be in high demand: combine that with a low number of facilities per person and you've got a recipe for a red-hot storage market.

Sometimes storage prices in the next town or suburb over are significantly cheaper than those in your immediate area. That's why those looking for the best deal on a storage unit should expand the area of their search as far and wide as possible. 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 Temecula 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.
