Boise Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Boise, Idaho

Self Storage in Boise: FAQ

Is Boise well-covered when it comes to the number of storage facilities? Or are my options to choose from few?

Finding storage is a game of numbers, and one important number is that of the amount of storage facilities in your city. More facilities bring more options, so the odds of finding the perfect unit increase as the number of facilities in your area does. So how many storage businesses are located in Boise?

Based on our data, we estimate that there are about 29 storage facilities doing business in the Boise, ID area. If you were wondering how that compares to other cities in the state, it's a very high number of facilities for a city: the average city in Idaho offers only 11 storage facilities, 18 less than Boise. It makes sense then that Boise is also the 1st largest in terms of facilities out of all 11 cities in Idaho listed on our storage network, accounting for approximately 23.39% of self storage facilities listed in that state. But what about on a national scale? Even then, Boise has more storage facilities than the average city, 20 more than the average 9, to be exact.

'But what about self storage facilities per capita?', you might be thinking. Comparing Boise to other cities in Idaho irrespective of population does, indeed, make little sense. Boise, ID has approximately 210,145 inhabitants. Do the 29 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? The average number of facilities listed on our storage network in cities with populations of 100,000 to 250,000 is 18. As Boise's facility count beats that by 11, we can establish that Boise has a bit more storage space than average for a city its size. But does Boise's relationship to other cities in the 100,000 to 250,000 bracket prove that it has a relative surplus of self-storage facilities for the population, or would a different measure be more relevant? As it turns out, per capita data seems to have repudiated the importance of those figures. Boise's 29 self-storage facilities for its 210,145 residents ranks it in the 36th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across the country. That low rank means that there isn't as much storage space for each person in Boise as there is in most other cities. Among cities in Idaho, Boise ranks in the 20th percentile for storage facilities per capita, meaning that even compared to its neighbors in Idaho, Boise offers its population a relatively low amount of self-storage space.

How much should I expect my rental rates to be on my storage unit in Boise, ID?

Before you go out looking for a cheap storage unit in Boise, it's important that you know how much a unit in Boise ususally costs. Average prices varying as they do from place to place, the only valuable comparison you can make is with other storage facilities in the area. In order to make sure you don't go into your storage search unprepared, we've had our analysts comb through all the data on Boise storage you might need.

Storage rentals in Boise have an average montly rate of $55. If your storage needs are of a longer term, remember that at those rates you'll be paying approximately $660 a year. Keep in mind that that average does not differentiate between the different sizes of units, and so should be taken with a grain of salt. Larger units can be more than twice as expensive as the smaller sizes. Storage units in Boise come in these standard sizes: 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, and 10x20. In Boise, the average price for each standard size is:

Which areas of Boise are least expensive for storage units? Which areas are the most high-priced?

Just as home prices will differ from neighborhood to neighborhood in Boise, so will self-storage rates. The cheapest area for storage in Boise is within the 83716 ZIP code, where prices average $64.67 a month. You probably won't be finding the best deal on storage in the 83713 ZIP code in Boise, which with an average price of $91.68 a unit is the highest-priced area in town.

When are Boise, ID storage prices cheapest? Should I book in June or April?

The self storage market being of a seasonal nature, the prices on offer at the moment could be substantially different from those you'll see two months from now. 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. 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. College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.

Boise self storage prices on average change very little throughout the year relative to other cities, making seasonal price changes less of a worry for renters. Despite the low level of seasonality, those looking for a self storage unit may still want to lock in their price at the time of booking. Those looking for self storage in Boise will find the lowest prices in April, with its average price of $46.5. June, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $74.36.

How does the price of a storage unit in Boise compare with other cities?

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. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. 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. Knowing whether or not you should look in nearby cities depends on whether or not self-storage (sometimes called mini storage or public self storage) in those cities is less expensive than in Boise. We've gone ahead and figured that out for you.

With its average price of $55 a month for a unit, Boise is the 4th most expensive city for self-storage in the state of Idaho, which itself is the 47th most-expensive state for storage. In more exact terms, storage in Boise costs an average of $7.92 more than the average storage unit in Idaho, which goes for 47.08.

These average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage in one city is compared to another, as the cost of living changes from place to place. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Boise storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Boise is $55 and the median income in Idaho is $47,997.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 1.38% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. When we compare this storage price as a percent of income to other cities in Idaho, we find that it ranks in the 66th percentile, making it a fairly expensive place to rent storage.

In national terms, however, storage in Boise is actually on the opposite side of the specturm, ranking in at the 36th percentile nationwide, making it relatively cheap. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $17.15 less than that for self storage in Boise.


Are you searching for an incredibly affordable self storage unit in Boise, ID? April is the best time to begin your search for storage, while the least expensive are for storage is the 83716 ZIP code. The worst month to look for storage is June, when unit prices reach their year-long summit, and be aware that the 83713 area is pricier than other areas.

Boise self storage typically costs between $40 and $99 a month. Storage is currently in stock.

If you’re considering buying/selling a home instead of renting, it’s crucial to find a storage unit that will last you through the purchase or sale process. Especially when, according to Zillow, Boise had an average home value of $199,900 which in the past year is up 0.097%.
