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. About how many storage facilties are serving the Pompano Beach area?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 22 storage businesses operating facilities in Pompano Beach. If you were wondering how that compares to other cities in the state, it's a very high number of facilities for a city: the average city in Florida offers only 10 storage facilities, 12 less than Pompano Beach. It should come as no surprise then that Pompano Beach has the 19th-highest count of facilities out of all 173 cities on our network in Florida, acting as home to 1.34% of facilities in Florida. But what about on a national scale? Even then, Pompano Beach has more storage facilities than the average city, 13 more than the average 9, to be exact.
On the other hand, comparing the total number of storage facilities in one city to another irrespective of the number of people that live in each city makes little sense, even when we're comparing Pompano Beach to other cities in Florida. Do the 22 self storage facilities in Pompano Beach offer the 102,609 people living there enough extra storage space? How does Pompano Beach compare to similarly-sized cities? Pompano Beach offers a slightly higher than average amount of storage space for its size: cities in the 100,000 to 250,000 population bracket have an average 18 storage facilities, 4 fewer than what can be found in Pompano Beach. Per capita measures seem to have verified our conclusion that Pompano Beach is in possession of a healthy number of storage businesses for its size. Per capita, Pompano Beach ranks in the 51st percentile for storage facilities compared to cities across the country. That means there's a reasonably-high amount of storage space in Pompano Beach compared to other cities. But does Pompano Beach have a large number of storage facilities per person for a city in Florida? Indeed, it does, ranking at the 51st percentile.
Another thing about Pompano Beach we feel we should mention is that while it has grown in the past decade, it hasn't done so by as much as the rest of Florida has. Pompano Beach saw a small 2.2% jump between the 2000 and 2010 census, 15.4% less than the 17.6% the state of Florida experienced as a whole. Such a low growth rate relative to other cities in Florida, not to mention its higher number of facilities per capita than most of those cities, would seem to make Pompano Beach a high supply but low demand city for storage, which of course is ideal for anyone seeking to book a unit there.
