Self Storage in Bridgeport: FAQ

The city of Bridgeport, CT sits on a harbor where the Pequonnock River, which runs south from northern Connecticut, meets Long Island Sound. Bridgeport was one of America's early industrial powerhouses, and rose to prominence during and immediately after the Civil War, providing supplies for the Union Army. For the next century, Bridgeport's industrial economy remained strong, attracting a large number of European immigrants. In the 1970s and 80s, however, Bridgeport suffered a loss in factory jobs, much as the rest of the United States, and the Rust Belt in particular, did during this period. In addition, suburbanization saw many of the cities residents move out into the surrounding area, further stripping the city of much of its vibrancy. Today, however, Bridgeport is seeing new life, as its economy becomes more knowledge-based and former factories are converted to apartment buildings. Those of you who call Bridgeport home or soon plan on doing so will know all of that, but do you know how much a self storage unit costs in Bridgeport, or in which neighborhoods you can find the best prices?

How many self storage facilities are there in Bridgeport, CT? Are there plenty of options available?

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 Bridgeport, should I expect plenty of available storage facilities, or only a few?

There are 5 total storage facilities in Bridgeport, CT on the SelfStorage.com network. How does that compare to other cities in Connecticut? Bridgeport is home to 2 more facilities than the average city in Connecticut, which is only home to about 3 storage businesses. It should come as no surprise then that Bridgeport has the 10th-highest count of facilities out of all 43 cities on our network in Connecticut, acting as home to 3.82% of facilities in Connecticut. While Bridgeport may be above average for its state, it's not on a national scale, coming in 4 below the national average of 9 facilities.

But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Bridgeport to its neighbors in Connecticut or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. Bridgeport, CT has approximately 137,298 inhabitants. Do the 5 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? It seems clear, upon investigation, that Bridgeport does in fact have a low number of storage facilities for its population. With 5 self-storage facilities it's 13 facilities below the average for cities in its 100,000 to 250,000 population bracket, which seems to indicate a low level of storage space. In addition, if we look at Bridgeport's per capita facility count, our former findings seem to be definitively affirmed: Bridgeport does seem to have few facilities for its size. The 137,298 people who call Bridgeport home have access to only 5 storage businesses, which puts the city in the 6th percentile for facilities per capita among US cities. That clearly indicates a very low level of storage coverage for a city its size. How does Bridgeport compare to other cities in Connecticut? Even when we restict the scope to other cities in its state, Bridgeport still only ranks at the 4th percentile for per capita storage facilities.

Lastly, with regards to facilities per capita, we feel it worth mentioning that Bridgeport saw its total population fall by 1.6% over the first ten years of this century. The rest of Connecticut, however, did quite the opposite, taking on 4.9% more people in that same time period. Recall, however, that Bridgeport also had a low number of storage facilities per person for its state, so while there might not be as much demand generated by inbound migration, demand may already be high due to its short supply.

What's the best time of year to book self storage in Bridgeport, CT?

Changing seasonal demand often causes storage prices to swing between highs and lows during different parts of the year. Late spring to late summer is typically considered the high season, while fall, winter, and early spring are when prices are usually at their lowest. 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. College students looking for a place to keep their things during the summer holiday can also have an effect on high season prices, pushing up prices on smaller units in particular, which is something to keep in mind if you live in a college town.

There's a greater difference in price between high and low seasons in Bridgeport than there is elsewhere, which means you should be more conscious of the timing of your storage search here. If you know how long you'll be renting your unit, one way of avoiding seasonal price changes is by agreeing to pay a single rate for your entire stay. With its average price of $60, January is the cheapest month to book storage in Bridgeport. With an average price of $170, May is the most expensive month to rent storage in Bridgeport.
