Self Storage in Clermont: FAQ
What's storage facility coverage like in Clermont, FL? Are there plenty of facilities to choose from, or only a few?
Finding the unit you need at the price you want has everything to do with what's available in your area, with more facilities offering more options. If I'm searching for storage in Clermont, should I expect plenty of available storage facilities, or only a few?
According to our numbers, there are 5 total storage facilities in Clermont, FL. That's a very small number of facilties compared to what's on offer in other Florida cities, a full 5 fewer than the Florida average of 10 per city. Clermont accounts for only 0.31% of facilities in Florida, ranking as the 90th largest storage market out of all 173 cities in the state. The same can be said for Clermont on a national scale as well, where it has 4 fewer than the nine facilities that can be found in the average American city.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Clermont to its neighbors in Florida or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. 13,465 people make Clermont their home. Is 5 a relatively high or low number of storage facilities for such a population? Among the other similarly-sized cities we have listed on the SelfStorage.com network, Clermont has fewer self-storage facilities than average. Cities in its population bracket (10,000 to 25,000) average 6 facilities, while Clermont comes under that mark by 1. It is important to note that comparing cities of like size might not be the best measure, and that a more accurate conclusion might be had by looking at how many facilities there are for Clermont's 13,465 people--a figure which seems to have undercut our former finding that Clermont is low on storage space. Per capita, Clermont ranks in the 68th percentile for storage facilities compared to cities across the country. That means there's a reasonably-high amount of storage space in Clermont compared to other cities. Among cities in Florida, Clermont still has a high number of storage businesses listed on our network per inhabitant, ranking in at the 69th percentile statewide.
The fact that Clermont 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 Clermont saw 28.9% more people move there in the first decade of this century, 11.3% more than the 17.6% population that Florida saw altogether. Fortunately enough, Clermont has that high level of facilities per person, which should help to mitigate any spikes in demand caused by a migration into the city.
On average, how much does a storage unit in Clermont rent for?
Just like real estate prices, prices on storage can be totally different in different parts of the same city. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might 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 Clermont than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

While average prices will give you a good idea of how much you should expect to spend, they don't necessarily tell us if storage is relatively affordable in that city. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Clermont storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account.

Do Clermont, FL self storage rental rates change depending on the time of year? If so, which months are the most and least expensive?
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. Known to some in the industry as 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest of the year for storage and brings the high season into full swing. If you're looking for a storage unit in a location with a large student population, be aware that your high season might see an even greater lift in prices than elsewhere, as students often book a large number of units during the summer.
Analysts at SelfStorage.com have found that seasonal price changes on self storage in Clermont are marginally higher than in other cities, with a greater average difference between low and high seasons. The best way to keep seasonal changes at bay is to negotiate with the facility when you first book your unit for a single rate that will remain unchanged for the entire time you stay there. The lowest prices on self storage in Clermont can be found during the month of June, with an average price of $32.99, while the most expensive month is July, with an average price of $139.99.
