If you do your comparison shopping for storage units a few months from now, you might be surprised to see that prices have changed. That's because the self storage market is highly seasonal. 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. The single busiest day of the high season is typically National Moving Day, also called 'Crazy Tuesday' by storage facility operators for the amount of activity they see that day, which is the day after Memorial Day. University towns often see the sharpest seasonal spikes, as college students rent a significant number of storage units when they go home during their summer break. Smaller sized units in particular will see a rise in price during this period.
According to our data, there's very little change in the average price of a storage unit throughout the year in Evansville, meaning you shouldn't have to put too much thought into seasonality when looking for your unit. Sudden seasonal price swings could of course still happen, and one of the best ways to prevent your rates from exploding is by locking them in for the entirety of your stay when you first sign the contract with the facility. Those looking for self storage in Evansville will find the lowest prices in December, with its average price of $40.5. November, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $77.
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, the average price of a home in Evansville is $99,000.
