Changing seasonal demand often causes storage prices to swing between highs and lows during different parts of the year. Storage seasonality is in synch with the moving seasons, which are at their highest in the late spring and summer, as a huge amount of storage demand is generated by people moving into new homes. National Moving Day (the day following Memorial Day) is typically seen as the first real day of the high season and is often the busiest day of the year for storage facilities. 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 doesn't affect prices in Turlock as much as it does other cities, meaning there's less of a difference in price between low and high seasons. Sudden seasonal price swings could of course still happen, and one of the best ways to prevent your rates from exploding is by locking them in for the entirety of your stay when you first sign the contract with the facility. Your chances of getting a low price on a storage unit in Turlock are highest during September, when the average rental rate drops to a low $58. Your chances are lowest during November, which with an average price of $110 is the most expensive time to book a unit.
If you’re considering buying/selling a home instead of renting, it’s crucial to find a storage unit that will last you through the purchase or sale process. Especially when, according to Zillow, Turlock had an average home value of $259,900 which in the past year is up 0.285%.
