New Orleans Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, LA Self Storage: FAQ

An indubitable American treasure, New Orleans is a one-of-a-kind city that captures the history and startling diversity of the United States like few others can, while still remianing a relevant, buzzling metropolis even today. The centerpiece of Cajun culture, New Orleans still bears the marks of its distinctive French history, but what makes NOLA so unique is less the way its preserved its Old World French feel than the way in which that culture has mixed with many others, most notably African and Native American cultures, creating a unique blend known as 'French Creole.' Out of this cultural melting pot has come New Orlean's richest cultural legacies and contributions, such as the invention of Jazz music, food that includes po'boys and beignets, and the festival known as Mardi Gras. The city's economic vitality is based on its location at the end of the Mississippi River, where that mighty river meets the Gulf of Mexico. New Orleans is divided into 13 Districts and approximately 72 neighborhoods, which include: the French Quarter, Central City, East Riverside, Garden District, Irish Channel, Lower Garden District, Milan, St. Thomas, Touro, Audubon, Black Pearl, Broadmoor, Dixon, East Carrollton, Freret, Hollygrove, Leonidas, Fontainebleau, Uptown, West Riverside, Bayou St. John, Fairgrounds, Tulane, Park View, Navarre, and Bywater, among others. If you're a New Orleanian then you'll know all of that like the back of your hand, but do you know how much you should expect to pay for self storage in New Orleans, or which times of year offer the best prices?

The unit in New Orleans, LA I had planned on booking jumped in price from December to March. Is this a regular seasonal change, and if so, what's the best month to book a unit?

Prices on self storage units can change dramatically from month to month over the course of the year, spiking higher or dipping lower depending on the season. 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. 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. If you're looking for a storage unit in a location with a large student population, be aware that your high season might see an even greater lift in prices than elsewhere, as students often book a large number of units during the summer.

The high season isn't as relatively high, nor the low season as low, in New Orleans, where according to our data seasonality has a lesser effect on storage prices. Even so, it's often a good idea to book at the lowest price and then lock in that rate with the facility. Shop for self storage in New Orleans during December to get the best price, when units go for an average of $39. Prices reach their highest in March, which at an average price of $124.4 a month you might want to avoid.

How many storage facilities do I have to choose from in New Orleans? Does the area offer a large number of options?

A greater number of storage facilities equates to more available storage space, so the number of facilities operating in your city will be one of the most important factors in your storage search. When it comes to the number of facilities operating in New Orleans, how many options are available?

Based on our data, we estimate that there are about 48 storage facilities doing business in the New Orleans, LA area. When compared to other cities in Louisiana, there are a very large number of facilities operating in New Orleans. The average Louisiana city is home to only 11 facilities, 37 less than in New Orleans. New Orleans also boasts the 2nd highest count of storage facilities out of all 42 cities in Louisiana, making up 10.03% of the state's facility count. When compared against the national average of 9 storage facilities in each city, New Orleans still offers a full 39 more than the average.

If we're making comparisons between cities, however, we're missing out on some important insights if we don't factor population in, even if we're simply comparing New Orleans to the rest of Louisiana. Are the 48 facilities in New Orleans sufficient at supplying the 354,850 people who call it home with enough extra storage space? New Orleans, as it turns out, has fewer storage facilities than is typical of a city its size. Cities with a population of 250,000 to 1,000,000 have an average 49 facilities, 1 more than New Orleans's 48. That New Orleans has few facilities for its size seems to be further verified when we look at New Orleans's actual per capita storage facility coverage. On a national scale, New Orleans ranks in the 36th percentile for self-storage facilities per person, clearly indicating that most other cities on our network offer a greater number of storage businesses per capita. In other words, due to a relative lack of extra storage space, the 354,850 people living in New Orleans might have a harder time locating the right storage unit for them than they would in other cities. If we restrict our scope down to the state level, we get similar results: for cities in Louisiana, New Orleans only ranks in the 7th percentile, meaning that New Orleans has little per capita storage space even compared to other cities in its state.

Finally, it bears mentioning that New Orleans has been experiencing a downward trend in population growth in recent years, losing 26.6% of its population from 2000 to 2010, according to the US Census. Meanwhile, the rest of Louisiana as a whole saw a population increase of 1.4% over that same period. Concluding that demand for storage in New Orleans would be lower than in other cities in Louisiana due to its relatively-low growth rate would, however, be ignoring the fact that New Orleans has fewer facilities for its population than many of these cities, and that a shorter supply would have the same effects on price as high demand.

Where can I reserve the best deals on storage units in New Orleans, Louisiana?

As they are closely linked to real estate prices, self storage unit prices can be very different in one part of New Orleans to another. Those trying to find the cheapest storage in New Orleans would do well by looking at facilities in the 70123 ZIP code, where storage units go for an average of $143.18 a month, the cheapest in all of New Orleans. Storage is priciest in the 70129 ZIP code, where you should expect to pay about $157.33 a month for a unit.

Is self storage in New Orleans pricey?

Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. By widening the breadth of your search, you'll open yourself up to even more facilities and a greater range of possibilities. The longer trip to the facility could easily be worth the monthly savings, particularly if you only plan on accessing your unit occassionally. If self-storage (often known as public self storage and mini storage) in New Orleans is more expensive than elsewhere, then you should definitely broaden your search. So we asked our analysts to find out.

New Orleans's average price of $88.67 a month for a unit ranks it as the 12th most expensive city for self-storage in Louisiana, which itself ranks as the 19th most expensive state for storage. In general, storage units in New Orleans go for $13.50 more than the state average of $75.17.

These average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage in one city is compared to another, as the cost of living changes from place to place. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. A storage unit in New Orleans will on average cost 2.62% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in Louisiana is $40,599.00. When we compare this storage price as a percent of income to other cities in Louisiana, we find that it ranks in the 73rd percentile, making it a fairly expensive place to rent storage.

When placed on a national scale and compared to cities across the country, storage prices in New Orleans are still very expensive, ranking at the 83rd percentile in terms of relative expense. Expect to pay $16.52 more than the national average of $72.15 when searching for self storage in New Orleans.
