Some communities are home to plenty of storage businesses, offering those looking for storage a wide variety of choices, while other communities are less-well served and may need to expand their search into neighboring cities and suburbs. How many facilties are operating in Lawrenceville?
Industry experts at SelfStorage.com estimate that there are approximately 14 storage facilities servicing the Lawrenceville, GA community. How does that compare to other cities in Georgia? Lawrenceville is home to 4 more facilities than the average city in Georgia, which is only home to about 10 storage businesses. It should come as no surprise then that Lawrenceville has the 17th-highest count of facilities out of all 88 cities on our network in Georgia, acting as home to 1.62% of facilities in Georgia. Does Lawrenceville perform as well against other cities outside of its state? In fact it does, as its 14 facilities put it 5 above the national average of 9 per city.
Of course, simply comparing cities irrespective of their various populations tells us very little about these cities, even when we're comparing Lawrenceville to other cities in Georgia. 29,837 people make Lawrenceville their home. Is 14 a relatively high or low number of storage facilities for such a population? It turns out that the average city in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket has 7 self-storage facilities listed on our network. That's 7 fewer facilities than are listed in Lawrenceville, leading us to conclude that Lawrenceville is slightly above-average among cities of similar size. One might point out that comparing Lawrenceville to cities of a similar size doesn't prove its healthy supply of storage space for the size of the population, and that a better measure would be actually looking at its facilities per capita. Well, we have, and it has firmly corroborated our former results. Lawrenceville places into the 75th percentile for storage facilities per person nationwide, meaning that the 29,837 people living there should have plenty of extra storage space. On a state level, Lawrenceville still has a good amount of storage space per person, ranking in at the 52nd percentile for cities in Georgia.
We feel we should also mention the fact that Lawrenceville has seen large population increases in the past decade, jumping 29.7% from 2000 to 2010. That's 11.4% more than the 18.3% growth the state of Georgia saw in total. On the other hand, Lawrenceville's large number of facilities per person seems to indicate that storage businesses in the area have kept pace with population growth and any extra demand that has created for storage units.
It's not uncommon for another community a few miles down the road to offer substanial savings on storage compared to the rates in your community. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. If self-storage (often known as public self storage and mini storage) in Lawrenceville is more expensive than elsewhere, then you should definitely broaden your search. So we asked our analysts to find out.

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. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Lawrenceville storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. The median income in Georgia is $45,741.00, which means the average storage unit in Lawrenceville would require 1.1% of a median earner's monthly income. As a percentage of the local median income this is actually a very cheap price to pay for self-storage. Indeed, when compared to other cities in Georgia, the relative price of self-storage in Lawrenceville ranks at the 22nd percentile.

Changing seasonal demand often causes storage prices to swing between highs and lows during different parts of the year. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. 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. If you're looking for a storage unit in a location with a large student population, be aware that your high season might see an even greater lift in prices than elsewhere, as students often book a large number of units during the summer.

If you'd still like to play it safe, which of course is always a good idea, one way to guard against seasonal price changes is by setting up an agreement with the facility to pay a single rate for your entire rental period. The lowest prices on self storage in Lawrenceville can be found during the month of January, with an average price of $41.86, while the most expensive month is April, with an average price of $103.46.
