NEW PORT RICHEY, FL Self Storage: FAQ
When are NEW PORT RICHEY, FL storage prices cheapest? Should I book in August or September?
Finding and locking in a good monthly rate on your self storage unit has a lot to do with the time of year you book it, as prices vacillate from season to season. 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. 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. Cities with high proportions of university students may see more pronounced seasonal highs and lows, as many students book storage units during the summer.

If you'd still like to play it safe, which of course is always a good idea, one way to guard against seasonal price changes is by setting up an agreement with the facility to pay a single rate for your entire rental period.
