It's often true that the same storage unit at the same storage facility will cost significantly more or less in April than it does in November. That's because self storage is a seasonal industry. 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 for self-storage businesses is typically the notorious 'National Moving Day' (which facility operators have dubbed 'Crazy Tuesday' for the chaotic scene at many facilities) the day after Memorial Day. Smaller unit sizes are often more strongly affected by seasonality, as college students make up a decent portion of those moving in the summer and tend to book 5x5 and 5x10 units.
Seymour isn't nearly as affected by seasonal change as most other cities are, the average price of storage remaining relatively stable throughout the year. 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. With its average price of $35, March is the cheapest month to book storage in Seymour. With an average price of $67.33, January is the most expensive month to rent storage in Seymour.
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 Seymour is $109,900.
