Scoring a good monthly price 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. The period between April and September is typically considered the high season for storage, while prices are lower the rest of the year, notably through October and March. Memorial Day weekend marks the definitive end to the low season. The following Tuesday is often so busy that it's popularly known as 'Crazy Tuesday' within the self storage industry. Seasonal prices are often even more extreme in college towns, where students book a large number of self storage units during their summer vacation.
