Is self storage in Whittier cheaper or more expensive than other cities in California?

Sometimes storage prices in the next town or suburb over are significantly cheaper than those in your immediate area. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Whittier than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

An average price of $61 a month for a storage unit makes Whittier the 183rd most expensive city in California for self-storage, while California itself is the 9th most expensive state. In general, storage units in Whittier go for $30.36 less than the state average of $91.36.

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. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. In California, the median income is $54,681.00 a year, which would make the average $61 unit in Whittier cost 1.34% of a median earner's monthly income. This is a moderately small percentage of income to spend on a self-storage unit compared to rates in other cities, ranking at the 27th percentile among other cities in California, meaning self-storage here is relatively cheap.

Whittier self-storage prices are relatively cheap on the national scale as well. When compared with cities on our national network they rank in the 34th percentile. The national average monthly price of a storage unit is $72.15. Depending on the size of unit you rent and the time of year, you should expect to pay approximately $11.15 less than that for self storage in Whittier.

What's the best time of year to book self storage in Whittier, CA?

Rental rates on self storage units can change significantly from one month to the next over the course of the year, climbing higher or diving lower depending on the season. The low season generally lasts from October through March, with prices kicking up in April and hitting their high from May to September. The single busiest day for self-storage businesses is typically the notorious 'National Moving Day' (which facility operators have dubbed 'Crazy Tuesday' for the chaotic scene at many facilities) the day after Memorial Day. College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.

Compared with other cities, Whittier experiences very high seasonal changes. The best way to protect yourself from these high seasonal swings is by booking during the low season and locking in your rate. May is the most expensive month for storage in Whittier, with an average price of $211. The cheapest prices on storage in Whittier can be found during the month of January, where the average cost of a unit is $61.

How much should my Whittier storage unit cost per month? How do I know if I got a good price?

Scoring an excellent price on a storage unit in Whittier often comes down to knowing what kind of price range to expect. Comparing rates at facilities you booked storage at in other cities can give the wrong expectations, as the average price for storage could be hundreds of dollars different in that location. In order to prevent you from going into your storage search in the dark, we've had our analysts comb through all the data on Whittier storage you might need.

Rental rates on storage in Whittier average $61 per month. That monthly rental rate would come out to a yearly price of about $732, should you be thinking of renting for that length of time. Keep in mind though that prices for all unit sizes in Whittier were included when calculating that figure, so comparing it any individual unit will do you little good. Units of different dimensions will of course go for different prices. The standard sizes of storage units in Whittier are: 5x10, 10x10, and 10x20. Here are the average monthly rental prices for each unit size:

Storage Unit SizeAverage Price in Whittier, CA
5x10$69
10x10$129
10x20$239

How many self-storage facilities are on offer in Whittier? How much storage space is there per capita?

More facilities in an area mean more options, with some cities offering storage-searchers a wide range and others one that's much more narrow. If I'm searching for storage in Whittier, should I expect plenty of available storage facilities, or only a few?

In total, 8 Whittier storage businesses have listed themselves on our self-storage facility network. That's a somewhat-low number of storage facilties serving the Whittier community, at least when compared to other cities in California, which have an average 9 operational facilities, 1 more than in Whittier. When ranked against the other 253 cities in California in order of number of facilities, Whittier only comes in 94th place, with 0.37% of the state's storage facilities. Whittier also has a below-average number of facilities when compared to cities on the national scale, where it's 1 below the national average of 9 storage facilities.

But of course, comparing Whittier to other cities in California or across the nation regardless of population tells us very little. Do the 8 self storage facilities in Whittier offer the 81,871 people living there enough extra storage space? How does Whittier compare to similarly-sized cities? Cities of similar size, as it turns out, offer more storage space than Whittier does. The average number of facilities for a city in the 50,000 to 100,000 population bracket is 11, which is 3 more than can be found in Whittier. In addition, if we look at Whittier's per capita facility count, our former findings seem to be definitively demonstrated: Whittier does seem to have few facilities for its size. On a self-storage facilities per-person basis, Whittier ranks in the 25th percentile among cities across the United States. In other words, there's not exactly a ton of extra storage space for the 81,871 people living there. Does Whittier perform any better in terms of per capita facilities for cities in California? Apparently even then the city is somewhat low on storage space, only ranking in the 44th percentile for facilities per person in California.

It's worth mentioning that Whittier has seen its population shrink in recent years, its population dwindling by 2.3% from the 2000 census to the 2010 census. During that same period, however, the state of California actually saw a population increase of 10%. Whittier's low growth rate may mean that, with fewer incoming residents than elsewhere in California, the demand for storage is lower, but let's not forget that Whittier already has relatively few facilities for its size., meaning demand from the local population might be just as high.
