The more facilities there are in the area you're searching, the more options you'll have. So how many storage facilities are there in Greeley?
In total, 16 Greeley storage businesses have listed themselves on our self-storage facility network. How does that compare to other cities in Colorado? Greeley is home to 4 more facilities than the average city in Colorado, which is only home to about 12 storage businesses. Greeley also boasts the 8th highest count of storage facilities out of all 30 cities in Colorado, making up 4.44% of the state's facility count. Does Greeley perform as well against other cities outside of its state? In fact it does, as its 16 facilities put it 7 above the national average of 9 per city.
But how does Greeley compare to the rest of Colorado and the nation on a per capita basis? After all, not controlling for population makes most city comparisons obsolete. So how does Greeley, with its population of 92,625, compare to cities with similar populations? For its size, Greeley is actually a bit above average in terms of the number of self-storage facilities servicing the community, as the average among cities in the 50,000 to 100,000 population bracket is 11 facilities, 5 below Greeley. But if we look at the number of facilities per person in Greeley, our story begins to change: indeed, these figures seem to have disputed our claim that Greeley has a large number of self-storage facilities per person. The 16 facilities in Greeley for its 92,625 residents rank it in the 44th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across America. That's a relatively-low rank, and seems to indicate that there's not a whole lot of extra storage space in Greeley for those 92,625 people living there. Even when we only compare Greeley to other cities in its state, it still appears to have relatively little self-storage space for the size of its population, coming in at the 41st percentile for facilities per capita among cities in Colorado.
The fact that Greeley is growing, and doing so at a rapid rate, also bears mentioning in our discussion of storage facilities per person. The US Census reports that Greeley saw 18.1% more people move there in the first decade of this century, 1.2% more than the 16.9% population that Colorado saw altogether. Don't forget that Greeley also offers relatively few facilities per person, meaning that its strong population growth may be exacerbating its shortage of storage.
The self storage market being of a seasonal nature, the prices on offer at the moment could be substantially different from those you'll see two months from now. The low season generally lasts from October through March, with prices kicking up in April and hitting their high from May to September. 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. Those looking for storage in areas with a large population of college students might find that seasonality affects prices on smaller unit sizes in particular, as students book 5x5s and 5x10s to store their things while they go home for the summer.
Our data shows that the average price of a storage unit does not change throughout the year in Greeley to the same degree as it does in most cities, so seasonality should be less of a hassle for those looking for storage in Greeley. 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. Those looking for self storage in Greeley will find the lowest prices in February, with its average price of $31. November, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $91.
Scoring an excellent price on a storage unit in Greeley often comes down to knowing what kind of price range to expect. Even though you may have booked storage units in other cities in the past, prices could be quite different in your current location, which makes it difficult to know what the standard price is. 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 Greeley storage you might need.
The average rental rate of a self storage unit in Greeley is $39 a month. If your storage needs are longer-term, keep in mind that that would equate to an average price of $468 per year.

The amount you'll actually end up paying will depend on the size of the unit you decide to rent. The standard sizes of storage units in Greeley are: 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and 10x30.

Self storage rates being as highly-dependent on the real estate market as they are, it should come as no surprise that prices can change dramatically within the space of a few miles. 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. The sum you'll save each month could totally be worth the extra drive, especially if you'll only need to visit your unit on the rare occasion. However, if self-storage (often called mini storage or public self storage) in Greeley is relatively cheap for the area then searching farther afield might do little good.
