Marlborough Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Marlborough, Massachusetts

Marlborough, MA Self Storage: FAQ

When are Marlborough, MA storage prices cheapest? Should I book in August or December?

Storage rental rates are highly seasonal, with prices often fluctuating widely throughout the year. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. The day after Memorial Day (which those in the moving and storage industries often refer to as 'Crazy Tuesday') is typically seen as the start of the high season and is frequently the most expensive day to rent storage during that season. 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.

The difference between seasons is somewhat greater in Marlborough than it is elsewhere, meaning you should be more wary of seasonal effects. 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. The lowest prices on self storage in Marlborough can be found during the month of December, with an average price of $78.25, while the most expensive month is August, with an average price of $199.

About how much does a Marlborough, MA storage unit cost?

Does Marlborough, MA offer plenty of options when it comes to different storage facilities?

Finding storage is a game of numbers, and one important number is that of the amount of storage facilities in your city. More facilities bring more options, so the odds of finding the perfect unit increase as the number of facilities in your area does. So how many storage businesses are located in Marlborough?

In total, 8 Marlborough storage businesses have listed themselves on our self-storage facility network. That's a signifcantly-higher number of facilities more than the average Massachusetts city offers. Other cities in the state average only 3 facilities, 5 less than what's available in Marlborough. Out of all 69 cities in Massachusetts listed on the SelfStorage.com network, Marlborough ranks as the 6th-highest in terms of number of storage businesses, accounting for 3.37% of facilities. While the average city in Massachusetts may have fewer storage facilities than Marlborough, the average city nationwide actually has more: 1 more than Marlborough, to be exact.

'But what about self storage facilities per capita?', you might be thinking. Comparing Marlborough to other cities in Massachusetts irrespective of population does, indeed, make little sense. We ought to be comparing Marlborough, with its population of 38,465, to cities of similar size. It turns out that Marlborough actually does have a decent amount of storage space for its size, with a few more facilities than average. Cities with populations of 25,000 to 50,000 average 7 storage facilities, 1 fewer than in Marlborough. But then again, such a population bracket covers a wide range of cities. A more accurate measure would be Marlborough's per capita facility count--a measure which has supported our former results, showing Marlborough to indeed have plenty of storage space for its population. Per capita, Marlborough ranks in the 50th percentile for storage facilities compared to cities across the country. That means there's a reasonably-high amount of storage space in Marlborough compared to other cities. Just as Marlborough appears to have a large amount of storage space per person compared to cities across the nation, the same goes when we restrict the comparison to Massachusetts, where Marlborough lands in the 83rd percentile for facilities per capita among cities in the state.

It also bears mentioning that Marlborough saw a large amount of population growth in the past decade, growing by 5% from 2000 to 2010, a good 1.9% more growth than the 3.1% the state of Massachusetts experienced over the same period. Thankfully, Marlborough's robust number of storage facilities per person should be able to handle any extra demand created by a large influx of new residents.

Are storage prices in Marlborough relatively low?

Sometimes storage prices in the next town or suburb over are significantly cheaper than those in your immediate area. That's why those looking for the best deal on a storage unit should expand the area of their search as far and wide as possible. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Marlborough than in other nearby cities, we can make it easier for you to decide whether or not to take the time on a wider search.
