Ruskin Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Ruskin, Florida

Ruskin, FL Self Storage: FAQ

How many self storage facilities are there in Ruskin, FL? Are there plenty of options available?

If your area is well-served by a large number of facilities, finding the right unit might be easier for you than for others in communities where less storage space is on offer. How many facilties are operating in Ruskin?

According to our estimates, there are approximately 2 storage businesses operating facilities in Ruskin. 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, 8 more than Ruskin does. Ruskin's low number of facilities places it down low on the chain in terms of storage market size: the city is only the 131st largest out of all 173 cities in Florida, its share of total facilities barely above 0.13%. Ruskin also has a below-average number of facilities when compared to cities on the national scale, where it's 7 below the national average of 9 storage facilities.

If we're making comparisons between cities, however, we're missing out on some important insights if we don't factor population in, even if we're simply comparing Ruskin to the rest of Florida. Are the 2 storage facilities providing the 17,208 people living in Ruskin with enough storage space? Among the other similarly-sized cities we have listed on the SelfStorage.com network, Ruskin has fewer self-storage facilities than average. Cities in its population bracket (10,000 to 25,000) average 6 facilities, while Ruskin comes under that mark by 4. Indeed, that Ruskin has relatively few storage facilities for its population is strenthened once more when we look at its per person facility count. Ruskin's 2 self-storage facilities for its 17,208 residents ranks it in the 30th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across the country. That low rank means that there isn't as much storage space for each person in Ruskin as there is in most other cities. How does Ruskin compare to other cities in Florida? Even when we restict the scope to other cities in its state, Ruskin still only ranks at the 32nd percentile for per capita storage facilities.

Is self storage in Ruskin inexpensive?

Self storage rates being as highly-dependent on the real estate market as they are, it should come as no surprise that prices can change dramatically within the space of a few miles. 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. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. Knowing whether or not you should look in nearby cities depends on whether or not self-storage (sometimes called mini storage or public self storage) in those cities is less expensive than in Ruskin. We've gone ahead and figured that out for you.

Ruskin is the 41st most expensive city for self storage in the state of Florida, with the average price of a storage unit there coming in at $98.33. Florida itself is the 15th most expensive state for storage. When searching for storage in Ruskin, expect to pay $19.70 more than Florida's average price of $78.63.

But average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage is in a given city, as money goes further in some states than it does in others. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. In Florida, the median income is $45,281.00 a year, which would make the average $98.33 unit in Ruskin cost 2.61% of a median earner's monthly income. This is a very high percentage of income compared to other cities in Florida, ranking in at the 76th percentile statewide, which leads us to conclude that storage in Ruskin is not cheap.

When placed on a national scale and compared to cities across the country, storage prices in Ruskin are still very expensive, ranking at the 83rd percentile in terms of relative expense. To put that in more concrete terms, storage in Ruskin should cost an average of $26.18 more than the national average price of 72.15.

Do Ruskin, FL self storage rental rates change depending on the time of year? If so, which months are the most and least expensive?

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. The high season typically begins in April or May and lasts till August or September, with prices dropping back down to their lowest in the late fall and winter. Sometimes called 'National Moving Day' or 'Crazy Tuesday', the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest for storage businesses and the highest point of the high season. College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.

Seasonality doesn't affect prices in Ruskin as much as it does other cities, meaning there's less of a difference in price between low and high seasons. However, even though prices are less likely to change dramatically in Ruskin, locking in a rate for your entire stay often allows you to bargain the total price down. The best month to go searching for storage in Ruskin is November, when the average unit goes for a low $77 a month. The worst month, on the other hand, is April, when units hit a high of $149.5.
