Finding and locking in a good monthly rate on your self storage unit has a lot to do with the time of year you book it, as prices vacillate from season to season. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. 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. 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.
