It's often true that the same storage unit at the same storage facility will cost significantly more or less in April than it does in November. That's because self storage is a seasonal industry. Late spring to late summer is typically considered the high season, while fall, winter, and early spring are when prices are usually at their lowest. 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. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.
Expect higher highs and lower lows during their respective seasons in Fayetteville, which data tells us is significantly more affected by seasonality than most other cities. The best way to keep seasonal changes at bay is to negotiate with the facility when you first book your unit for a single rate that will remain unchanged for the entire time you stay there. With its average price of $49, July is the cheapest month to book storage in Fayetteville. With an average price of $200, December is the most expensive month to rent storage in Fayetteville.

Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Fayetteville than in other nearby cities, we can make it easier for you to decide whether or not to take the time on a wider search.

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.

According to the data on our facility network, there are 8 storage businesses operating in Fayetteville, GA. 8 facilities isn't a very high number for a city in Georgia; in fact, it's 2 less than the 10 an average city in Georgia has on offer. It makes sense then that Fayetteville is only the 37th largest city for storage out of all 88 cities in Georgia listed on our network, containing only 0.93% of all facilities in the state. The same can be said for Fayetteville on a national scale as well, where it has 1 fewer than the nine facilities that can be found in the average American city.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Fayetteville to its neighbors in Georgia or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. Are the 8 storage facilities providing the 15,093 people living in Fayetteville with enough storage space? The average number of facilities listed on our storage network in cities with populations of 10,000 to 25,000 is 6. As Fayetteville's facility count beats that by 2, we can establish that Fayetteville has a bit more storage space than average for a city its size. When we next look at Fayetteville's actual per person self-storage facility count, our former conclusions seem to be corroborated beyond any reasonable doubt: the Fayetteville community has plenty of facilities for its size. On a storage facilities per capita basis, Fayetteville ranks in the 77th percentile nationwide, meaning that it has a very high number of facilities for each resident compared with other cities. When it comes to cities in Georgia, Fayetteville still has a comparatively-high level of storage space per capita, ranking in at the 59th percentile.
Another thing about Fayetteville we feel we should mention is that it's growing, and rapidly, having seen its population increase by 32.4% between the 2000 and 2010 census, a 14.1% higher growth rate than the 18.3% the state of Georgia experienced as a whole. Though this influx of new residents may have indeed created a greater demand for storage, keep in mind that Fayetteville still boasts an abundant number of facilities per capita, meaning that storage businesses seem to have been able to keep up with the added demand for units.
