Orange City, FL Self Storage: FAQ
How many self-storage locations are there in Orange City? Should I have trouble finding a facility?
The more facilities there are in the area you're searching, the more options you'll have. When it comes to the number of facilities operating in Orange City, how many options are available?
SelfStorage.com has 7 storage facilties in Orange City, FL listed on its network. That's not a large number of facilities compared to most other cities in Florida. In fact, it's significantly fewer: the average city in Florida offers 10 facilities to choose from, 3 more than Orange City does. Compared to the rest of the cities in Florida, Orange City ranks quite low in terms of number of facilities (65th out of all 173 cities), with a meager 0.43% share of the total. Orange City is below the national average as well, with 2 fewer storage facilities than the national average of 9 per city.
But of course, there are vast differences in population between Orange City and other cities in Florida, and even more so nationwide, so not controlling for population makes little sense. How, then, does Orange City with its 9,931 people compare to cities of a like size? Orange City, as it turns out, has a moderately-high amount of storage space for a city its size. The average for cities in its 5,000 to 10,000 population bracket is 4 facilities, which is, of course, 3 fewer than Orange City's 7. Orange City's above average number of facilities seems to be affirmed when we look at the actual per capita number of facilities. Per person, the 7 self-storage facilities in Orange City rank it in the 84th percentile nationwide, meaning there should be a very high amount of storage space for its 9,931 residents. When it comes to cities in Florida, Orange City still has a comparatively-high level of storage space per capita, ranking in at the 86th percentile.
Our discussion of facilities per capita can't be completed without mentioning Orange City's rapid population growth from 2000-2010, a period over which it took on 25% more people. That's a 7.4%-higher growth rate than Florida, which grew by 17.6%, saw as a whole. But even if Orange City's growth in population has caused a surge in demand, keep in mind that the city still, even after all that growth, has a good number of facilities per capita, which may balance out the population surge.

It's hard to tell a good price on storage from a great one when you're unaware of how much self storage in Orange City should cost in the first place.

What are the cheapest months to rent storage in Orange City, FL? Which months are most expensive?
If you do your comparison shopping for storage units a few months from now, you might be surprised to see that prices have changed. That's because the self storage market is highly seasonal. 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 day after Memorial Day (which those in the moving and storage industries often refer to as 'Crazy Tuesday') is typically seen as the start of the high season and is frequently the most expensive day to rent storage during that season. 5x5 and 5x10 units often see wider seasonal swings, primarily due to college students renting these smaller sizes when they leave town for the summer. College towns will be particularly affected by this.
The difference in price between high and low seasons is negligible in Orange City, which experiences low seasonal effects, according to our data. Even though you shouldn't have to worry as much about your rates changing later in the year, it's always best to lock in your rate with the facility if possible. Storage prices are at their highest in Orange City during the month of July, where they hit an average price of $110.63, while prices are at their lowest in September, where they go for a low $39.6 a month.
How does the price of a storage unit in Orange City compare with other cities?
It's often true that certain areas in a city offer much lower storage rental rates than others. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. You might have to spend more on gas getting out to that unit, but the savings you'll be building up could totally compensate for that. If self-storage (often known as public self storage and mini storage) in Orange City is more expensive than elsewhere, then you should definitely broaden your search. So we asked our analysts to find out.
Orange City's average price of $63.33 a month for a unit ranks it as the 102nd most expensive city for self-storage in Florida, which itself ranks as the 15th most expensive state for storage. When searching for storage in Orange City, expect to pay $15.30 less than Florida's average price of $78.63.
An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Orange City is $63.33 and the median income in Florida is $45,281.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 1.68% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. Compared to the price-as-percent-of-income in other Florida cities, Orange City ranks at the 40th percentile, making storage here relatively affordable.
In national terms, however, storage in Orange City is actually on the opposite side of the specturm, ranking in at the 53rd percentile nationwide, making it somewhat expensive. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $8.82 less than that for self storage in Orange City.
