Successfully booking the storage unit you're looking for will have much to do with the number of self storage businesses in your city, as the more facilities there are the more options you'll have available. So are there a large or small number of storage businesses operating in Glen Burnie?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 4 storage businesses operating facilities in Glen Burnie. When placed in comparison to other cities in the state, Glen Burnie offers storage searchers relatively few facilities: the average city in Maryland has 5 storage businesses listed on the SelfStorage.com network, 1 more than Glen Burnie does. When ranked against the other 48 cities in Maryland in order of number of facilities, Glen Burnie only comes in 22nd place, with 1.71% of the state's storage facilities. Just as it has few facilities relative to other cities in its state, Glen Burnie also has a meager number of self-storage facilities compared to other cities nationwide, 5 less than the national average of 9.
But of course, comparing the raw number of storage facilities in Glen Burnie to other cities in Maryland and nationwide without taking population into account tells us very little. How, then, does Glen Burnie with its 67,639 people compare to cities of a like size? As it turns out, Glen Burnie is significantly below average versus storage facilities in similarly-sized cities. The average number of facilities in its population bracket (cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000) is 11, while Glen Burnie has 7 less with its total 4 storage facilites. Glen Burnie may indeed be short on storage space. One may of course argue that measuring Glen Burnie against cities of a like size isn't the best yardstick and does not prove that there are few storage facilities for the number of people who live there. In order to address these concerns we've looked at Glen Burnie's facilities per person, which seems to have demonstrated our former conclusions. With only 4 self storage businesses serving a community of roughly 67,639 people, Glen Burnie lands in the 12th percentile for storage facilities per capita nationwide. That obviously means there's not as much storage space for each resident as there is in other cities, which could clealy complicate your storage search. Even for a Maryland city, Glen Burnie doesn't seem to be inundated with an overabundance of self-storage space, as it only ranks in the 10th percentile for storage businesses per person among cities in the state.
Sometimes storage prices in the next town or suburb over are significantly cheaper than those in your immediate area. 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. The extra drive to the facility could very well be worth the monthly savings. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Glen Burnie than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. A storage unit in Glen Burnie will on average cost 2.16% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in Maryland is $67,551.00. This is a relatively-large percentage of income compared to other cities in Maryland, ranking in at the 66th percentile statewide. We have to conlude from this that storage in Glen Burnie is somewhat expensive.
