Some of the most successful storage finds occur when the storage seeker includes nearby towns, suburbs, and neighborhoods in their search. One of the best pieces of advice we can give customers looking for the cheapest storage in their area is to expand the breadth of their search. 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. But is it worth expanding your search, or is self-storage (commonly called mini storage or public storage) cheaper in Kenner than its surroundings? We asked the analysts at SelfStorage.com to find out.
Kenner is the 20th most expensive city for self storage in the state of Louisiana, with the average price of a storage unit there coming in at $71.8. Louisiana itself is the 19th most expensive state for storage. When searching for storage in Kenner, expect to pay $3.37 less than Louisiana's average price of $75.17.
While average prices will give you a good idea of how much you should expect to spend, they don't necessarily tell us if storage is relatively affordable in that city. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Kenner is $71.8 and the median income in Louisiana is $40,599.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 2.12% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. Compared to other cities in Louisiana, this is a fairly-high percentage of income, ranking in the 53rd percentile statewide, leading us to label Kenner as a relatively expensive place to rent storage.
In addition, storage in Kenner is also somewhat expensive on the national scale, ranking at the 72nd percentile compared to other cities across the nation. Expect to pay $0.35 less than the national average of $72.15 when searching for self storage in Kenner.
One of the most prominent factors involved with finding a cheap storage unit is the time of year you go searching for that unit, as storage prices change due to seasonal demand. The period between April and September is typically considered the high season for storage, while prices are lower the rest of the year, notably through October and March. Memorial Day weekend marks the definitive end to the low season. The following Tuesday is often so busy that it's popularly known as 'Crazy Tuesday' within the self storage industry. College students looking for a place to keep their things during the summer holiday can also have an effect on high season prices, pushing up prices on smaller units in particular, which is something to keep in mind if you live in a college town.
Seasonality doesn't affect prices in Kenner as much as it does other cities, meaning there's less of a difference in price between low and high seasons. Even so, it's often a good idea to book at the lowest price and then lock in that rate with the facility. June is the least expensive month for storage in Kenner, with an average price of $47.14 for a storage unit. August is the most expensive month, when storage goes for an average rate of $125.4.
Some communities are home to plenty of storage businesses, offering those looking for storage a wide variety of choices, while other communities are less-well served and may need to expand their search into neighboring cities and suburbs. So how many storage businesses are located in Kenner?
SelfStorage.com has 12 storage facilties in Kenner, LA listed on its network. Across Louisiana, approximately 11 facilities are located in each city on average, 1 less than the 12 available in Kenner, meaning Kenner is home to a few more facilities than the average city. This ranks Kenner as the 13th largest storage market out of 42 Louisiana cities in terms of number of facilities, making up 2.51% of the state's total. Kenner also has a large number of facilities for a city on the national scale, with 3 more facilities than the national average of 9.
Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Kenner and other cities in Louisiana, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. The population of Kenner, LA is 67,842. With 12 self-storage facilities, does Kenner offer relatively good or bad storage coverage? It turns out that Kenner actually does have a decent amount of storage space for its size, with a few more facilities than average. Cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 average 11 storage facilities, 1 fewer than in Kenner. But if we look at the number of facilities per person in Kenner, our story begins to change: indeed, these figures seem to have disputed our claim that Kenner has a large number of self-storage facilities per person. The 67,842 people living in Kenner have access to 12 self-storage facilities, which puts them in the 45th percentile for facilities per capita nationwide. That's not a very high rank, meaning that Kenner doesn't offer a ton of storage businesses for its 67,842 residents to choose from. Is Kenner still relatively low on storage space compared to other cities in Louisiana? Indeed, it seems as if it is, as Kenner only ranks in the 17th percentile for per capita storage space among cities in Louisiana.
We feel it worth mentioning that Kenner saw a net loss in population from the 2000 census to the 2010 census, where its number of inhabitants fell by 3.5%. Over that same period, however, Louisiana took on 1.4% more people. But remember that, despite the fact that population growth probably isn't generating a great amount of demand for storage in Kenner, the city already has relatively few facilities for the size of its current population.
Scoring a great deal on a storage unit in Kenner has everything to do with knowing what kind of price range to expect. Storage prices can shift significantly from city-to-city, so knowing what's standard for an area can be difficult.
