Metairie Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Metairie, Louisiana

Metairie, LA Self Storage: FAQ

Metairie is a large suburb of New Orleans, located north of the city on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain, connected to the north side of the lake by the Lake Pontchartrain causeway. Metairie is an unincorporated, census-designated place, and so is not technically a city. If it were, it would be the fourth-largest city by population in Louisiana. Like the rest of New Orleans, Metairie is susceptible to flooding due to its proximity to large bodies of water and its low elevation (only 3 feet above sea level). The city was struck hard by Hurricane Katrina, and a significant portion of its population was forced to flee. Many have yet to return. If you're a resident of Metairie, then you'll know all of that already, but do you know which ZIP codes offer the cheapest self storage in Metairie?

How many self-storage locations are there in Metairie? Should I have trouble finding a facility?

Over the course of your search you'll likely be comparing a number of facilities against one another to find the right option for you. Most would agree that the more storage businesses there are to compare, the better. After all, who doesn't like options? So does Metairie offer plenty of options when it comes to different storage facilities?

There are 15 total storage facilities in Metairie, LA on the SelfStorage.com network. Other Louisiana cities have an average of 11 facilities on our network, 4 less than Metairie, which leads us to conclude that Metairie offers a moderately-high number of facilities. Out of all 42 cities in Louisiana listed on the SelfStorage.com network, Metairie ranks as the 9th-highest in terms of number of storage businesses, accounting for 3.14% of facilities. Even by national standards, Metairie boasts a large number of facilities, 6 more than the national average of 9 facilities in each city.

Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Metairie and other cities in Louisiana, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. The population of Metairie, LA is 138,481. With 15 self-storage facilities, does Metairie offer relatively good or bad storage coverage? Metairie, as it turns out, has fewer storage facilities than is typical of a city its size. Cities with a population of 100,000 to 250,000 have an average 18 facilities, 3 more than Metairie's 15. Indeed, that Metairie has relatively few storage facilities for its population is corroborated once more when we look at its per person facility count. On a self-storage facilities per-person basis, Metairie ranks in the 28th percentile among cities across the United States. In other words, there's not exactly a ton of extra storage space for the 138,481 people living there. Among cities in Louisiana, Metairie ranks in the 4th percentile for storage facilities per capita, meaning that even compared to its neighbors in Louisiana, Metairie offers its population a relatively low amount of self-storage space.

Are some parts of Metairie cheaper for storage than others?

Self Storage rates can change dramatically from one neighborhood to the next in Metairie. The 70001 ZIP code offers the best rates on storage in Metairie, with an average price of $110.47 a month. On the other hand, the 70002 ZIP code is the costliest area of Metairie to rent a storage unit, with rental rates averaging $150.99 a month.

Are self storage prices in Metairie, LA lower in certain seasons? Should I book my unit in the spring, summer, fall or winter to get the best deal?

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. Storage seasonality is in synch with the moving seasons, which are at their highest in the late spring and summer, as a huge amount of storage demand is generated by people moving into new homes. 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. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.

Seasonality is slightly more pronounced in Metairie than it is in other cities on the SelfStorage.com network, meaning some price shifts throughout the year should be expected If you know how long you'll be renting your unit, one way of avoiding seasonal price changes is by agreeing to pay a single rate for your entire stay. Your chances of getting a low price on a storage unit in Metairie are highest during December, when the average rental rate drops to a low $45. Your chances are lowest during November, which with an average price of $233 is the most expensive time to book a unit.

What kind of rental rates should I expect on Metairie, LA storage units?

Scoring a great deal on a storage unit in Metairie 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.

Is self storage in Metairie inexpensive?

Sometimes storage prices in the next town or suburb over are significantly cheaper than those in your immediate area. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. 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 on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Metairie than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.
