According to our numbers, there are 6 total storage facilities in Avon, IN. 6 facilities isn't a very high number for a city in Indiana; in fact, it's 3 less than the 9 an average city in Indiana has on offer. To put it into a different perspective, that's just barely 2.24% of the facilities in Indiana, ranking it as the 14th largest out of 29 Indiana cities in terms of number of storage businesses. Just as Avon has a below-average number of storage facilities for a city in Indiana, the same is true on a national scale, where the city has 3 fewer facilities than the 9 that can be found in the average US city.
'But what about self storage facilities per capita?', you might be thinking. Comparing Avon to other cities in Indiana irrespective of population does, indeed, make little sense. Avon, IN has approximately 12,708 inhabitants. Do the 6 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? It just so happens that in being in possession of 6 facilities, Avon is average for its size. The average for other cities with populations of 10,000 to 25,000 on our self-storage network is 6 each, making Avon perfectly unexceptional. There might, however, be a better way to measure whether or not there's enough storage space for the 10,000 to 25,000 people living in Avon. For example, we could just calculate the actual number of facilities for each one of those people. On a per person basis compared to other cities across the nation, Avon ranks in the 75th percentile for number of storage businesses, which is what we consider a very high amount of space per resident. Just as Avon appears to have a large amount of storage space per person compared to cities across the nation, the same goes when we restrict the comparison to Indiana, where Avon lands in the 71st percentile for facilities per capita among cities in the state.
In discussing facilities per capita, we also feel that we should mention the fact that Avon's population is growing, and by a significant margin. Its population saw a 46.8% increase in the first decade of this century, which is 40.2% more than the 6.6% increase the whole state of Indiana experienced. Thankfully, Avon's robust number of storage facilities per person should be able to handle any extra demand created by a large influx of new residents.
Much like real estate values, storage prices can be totally different on one side of a city as they are on another. This should be of little surprise given storage's conection to the real estate industry. It could indeed be that a facility just a mile or two outside of town offers a much lower rate, but you won't find that facility unless you include a wider area in your search. The extra drive to the facility could very well be worth the monthly savings. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Avon than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.
An average price of $68.5 a month for a storage unit makes Avon the 11th most expensive city in Indiana for self-storage, while Indiana itself is the 27th most expensive state. In more exact terms, storage in Avon costs an average of $2.81 more than the average storage unit in Indiana, which goes for 65.69.
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. The median income in Indiana is $46,020.00, which means the average storage unit in Avon would require 1.79% of a median earner's monthly income. When we compare this storage price as a percent of income to other cities in Indiana, we find that it ranks in the 62nd percentile, making it a fairly expensive place to rent storage.
The same holds true on a national scale, where storage in Avon is comparatively somewhat expensive, ranking at the 58th percentile among cities nationwide. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $3.65 less than that for self storage in Avon.
It's hard to tell a good price on storage from a great one when you're unaware of how much self storage in Avon should cost in the first place.

As self storage is a seasonal industry, the rates you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. Storage prices generally reach their peak during the period from May to September, coinciding with moving season. 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. 5x5 and 5x10 units often see wider seasonal swings, primarily due to college students renting these smaller sizes when they leave town for the summer. College towns will be particularly affected by this.
Seasonality seems to be a very low factor in Avon self storage prices, with little change between high and low season prices. Despite the fact that seasonal price changes are less of a risk in Avon, they're not impossible, so a good idea might be to play it safe and lock in your rate for the entirety of your stay, if possible.
