Bradenton, FL Self Storage: FAQ
Are storage rental rates seasonal? Do storage unit prices in Bradenton, FL change depending on the time of year?
As self storage is a seasonal industry, the rates you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. This seasonality, which is primarily generated by national moving patterns, hits its zenith in the late spring and early summer, and its nadir in the fall and winter. 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.
Bradenton, according to our data, is virtually unaffected by seasonality relative to other cities, with lower highs and higher lows relative to what other cities experience. However, even though prices are less likely to change dramatically in Bradenton, locking in a rate for your entire stay often allows you to bargain the total price down. January is the least expensive month for storage in Bradenton, with an average price of $53.1 for a storage unit. May is the most expensive month, when storage goes for an average rate of $91.41.
