Are storage rental rates seasonal? Do storage unit prices in Hudson, FL change depending on the time of year?
Prices on self storage units can change dramatically from month to month over the course of the year, spiking higher or dipping lower depending on the season. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. The high season is considered to be in full swing on National Moving Day, also called 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day after Memorial Day. 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.
Expect a slightly higher high season and a slightly lower low season in Hudson, which according to the data feels the effects of seasonality more than many other cities do. In cities such as Hudson that have highly-seasonal prices, its often a good idea to agree on a length of stay and a single monthly rate with the facility, and to get that agreement down in writing.
