If your area is well-served by a large number of facilities, finding the right unit might be easier for you than for others in communities where less storage space is on offer. So how many storage facilities are there in Kapolei?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 2 storage businesses operating facilities in Kapolei. On the state level, the average city in Hawaii is home to approximately 4 self-storage businesses, meaning that Kapolei, with 2 less than that, offers few facilties relative to the rest of its state. To put it into a different perspective, that's just barely 3.78% of the facilities in Hawaii, ranking it as the 7th largest out of 13 Hawaii cities in terms of number of storage businesses. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in Hawaii, Kapolei also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 7 fewer than the national average of 9, to be precise.
Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Kapolei and other cities in Hawaii, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. How, then, does Kapolei with its 15,186 people compare to cities of a like size? For a city its size, Kapolei is a bit below average when it comes to self storage facilities. Other cities in the 10,000 to 25,000 population bracket have an average 6 facilities, 4 more than the 2 on offer in Kapolei. That Kapolei has few facilities for its size seems to be further verified when we look at Kapolei's actual per capita storage facility coverage. The 2 facilities in Kapolei for its 15,186 residents rank it in the 35th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across America. That's a relatively-low rank, and seems to indicate that there's not a whole lot of extra storage space in Kapolei for those 15,186 people living there. Just as Kapolei offers little storage space per person on a national scale, the same goes when we compare the city to others in its state, where it only ranks in the 41st percentile for facilities per capita.
Self storage rates being as highly-dependent on the real estate market as they are, it should come as no surprise that prices can change dramatically within the space of a few miles. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. Depending on how often you'll need to access your unit, this could be the way to go. If self-storage (often known as public self storage and mini storage) in Kapolei is more expensive than elsewhere, then you should definitely broaden your search. So we asked our analysts to find out.
Kapolei's average price of $67.38 a month for a unit ranks it as the 6th most expensive city for self-storage in Hawaii, which itself ranks as the 3rd most expensive state for storage. In more exact terms, storage in Kapolei costs an average of $34.00 less than the average storage unit in Hawaii, which goes for 101.38.
But average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage is in a given city, as money goes further in some states than it does in others. To give you a better idea of affordability, we've created a 'relative price' scale that estimates how expensive storage is for median income earners in that state. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Kapolei is $67.38 and the median income in Hawaii is $60,232.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 1.34% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. Compared to other cities in Hawaii, this is a fairly-high percentage of income to spend on storage, ranking Kapolei in the 58th percentile statewide. This leads us to label the city as a somewhat expensive place to rent self-storage.
In terms of our national network, however, storage in Kapolei is actually on the opposite side of the spectrum, ranking in at the 34th percentile nationwide, making it relatively cheap. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $4.77 less than that for self storage in Kapolei.
