As storage prices are closely tied to local real estate prices, it makes sense that rental rates can often differ substantially even in neighboring cities. By widening the breadth of your search, you'll open yourself up to even more facilities and a greater range of possibilities. You might have to spend more on gas getting out to that unit, but the savings you'll be building up could totally compensate for that. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Sandy Springs 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. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Sandy Springs is $51.33 and the median income in Georgia is $45,741.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 1.35% of a median earner's monthly paycheck.

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. Known to some in the industry as 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest of the year for storage and brings the high season into full swing. Seasonal prices are often even more extreme in college towns, where students book a large number of self storage units during their summer vacation.

To avoid these seasonal changes as much as possible, try to lock in a rate during the slow season that will remain unchanged through the high season.
