Do Wesley Chapel, FL self storage rental rates change depending on the time of year? If so, which months are the most and least expensive?
As self storage is a seasonal industry, the rates you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. 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. College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.
There's a greater difference in price between high and low seasons in Wesley Chapel than there is elsewhere, which means you should be more conscious of the timing of your storage search here. One way of insulating yourself against seasonal rate changes is by signing a contract with the facility that specifies a length of stay and a single, unchanging rate, if possible. July is the least expensive month for storage in Wesley Chapel, with an average price of $50.5 for a storage unit. June is the most expensive month, when storage goes for an average rate of $188.8.
