Are self storage prices in Naples, FL lower in certain seasons? Should I book my unit in the spring, summer, fall or winter to get the best deal?
One of the most prominent factors involved with finding a cheap storage unit is the time of year you go searching for that unit, as storage prices change due to seasonal demand. 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. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.
Analysts at SelfStorage.com have determined that seasonal swings aren't as extreme in Naples as they are in other cities. However, even though prices are less likely to change dramatically in Naples, locking in a rate for your entire stay often allows you to bargain the total price down. Your chances of getting a low price on a storage unit in Naples are highest during August, when the average rental rate drops to a low $35.67. Your chances are lowest during December, which with an average price of $111.07 is the most expensive time to book a unit.
Is self storage in Naples expensive?
It's often the case that storage prices can swing to the opposite end of the spectrum within a few blocks in the same city, just as real estate values are liable to do. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. The longer trip to the facility could easily be worth the monthly savings, particularly if you only plan on accessing your unit occassionally. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Naples than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.
