Quincy Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Quincy, Massachusetts

Quincy, MA Self Storage: FAQ

What are the cheapest months to rent storage in Quincy, MA? Which months are most expensive?

As self storage is a seasonal industry, the prices you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. National Moving Day (the day following Memorial Day) is typically seen as the first real day of the high season and is often the busiest day of the year for storage facilities. 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.

Self storage prices in Quincy are not nearly as affected by seasonal changes as other cities are, meaning there's a greater likelihood you'll find stable year-round prices. Even so, it's often a good idea to book at the lowest price and then lock in that rate with the facility. The lowest prices on self storage in Quincy can be found during the month of April, with an average price of $35, while the most expensive month is May, with an average price of $83.

How much does the typical storage unit in Quincy cost?

Searching storage in Quincy without knowing how much a unit should cost is no way to go about finding a good price. With the average rental rate varying widely from place to place, the only truly valuable comparison you can make is with other storage facilities in the area. Which is why, in order to ensure that you go into your storage search as well informed as possible, we've gone ahead and processed the data for you.

You should expect to pay an average of $35 a month for self storage in Quincy. For you long-term storage seekers out there, that's about $420 per year. Now, that number doesn't discriminate by unit size, instead averaging all together, so it shouldn't be taken as an incredibly accurate figure. You can easily end up paying up to or exceeding twice as much money for the larger units than the smaller sizes. The standard sizes of storage units in Quincy are: 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20 and 10x30. The average monthly rental rates for each are:

Is self storage in Quincy expensive?

Much like real estate values, storage prices can be totally different on one side of a city as they are on another. This should be of little surprise given storage's conection to the real estate industry. The more expansive your search, the more facilities you'll be able to compare, and the more options you'll have. Sure, it might be more of a pain to drive to the facility, but hundreds of dollars in potential savings might alleviate that. If the average price of self storage (which includes facilities called mini storage or public self storage) is higher in Quincy, then you'll definitely want to expand your search. So is it?

An average price of $35 a month for a storage unit makes Quincy the 67th most expensive city in Massachusetts for self-storage, while Massachusetts itself is the 8th most expensive state. When searching for storage in Quincy, expect to pay $60.58 less than Massachusetts's average price of $95.58.

But average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage is in a given city, as money goes further in some states than it does in others. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Quincy storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Quincy is $35 and the median income in Massachusetts is $63,085.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 0.67% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. As a percentage of the local median income this is very cheap compared to other cities in Massachusetts, ranking Quincy at the 2nd percentile statewide. We feel comfortable then saying that self-storage in Quincy is extremely affordable.

The same holds true on a national scale, where self-storage rates in Quincy are comparatively very cheap, ranking in at the 3rd percentile among cities on our nationwide network. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $37.15 less than that for self storage in Quincy.

How many self-storage facilities are on offer in Quincy? How much storage space is there per capita?

Finding the unit you need at the price you want has everything to do with what's available in your area, with more facilities offering more options. In terms of the number of storage businesses in Quincy, are there plenty of options available, or few?

Analysts at SelfStorage.com report that there are an estimated 4 storage facilities located in the Quincy area. The average city in Massachusetts is home to about 3 storage facilties, 1 less than what can be found in Quincy, meaning Quincy has a reasonably-large number of facilities. In fact, Quincy's 4 facilities give it the 22nd-highest count in the state out of all 69 cities. It's home to a surprising 1.69% of all facilities in Massachusetts. While the average city in Massachusetts may have fewer storage facilities than Quincy, the average city nationwide actually has more: 5 more than Quincy, to be exact.

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 Quincy to the rest of Massachusetts. We ought to be comparing Quincy, with its population of 91,028, to cities of similar size. Quincy's 4 facilities put it under most other cities of similar size, as it turns out. For cities with the 50,000 to 100,000 population group, the average number of self-storage facilities is 11, which of course is 7 more than can be found in Quincy. Quincy, it seems, is lacking in extra storage space. Indeed, that Quincy has relatively few storage facilities for its population is affirmed once more when we look at its per person facility count. Compared to other cities listed on our national network, Quincy place in the 8th percentile for storage businesses per person. This clearly shows that 4 is a low number of facilities for a city of 91,028, meaning that finding the storage unit you need could be more challenging in Quincy than it is elsewhere. Even if we restrict our scope of comparison to the state level, Quincy doesn't seem to offer its population as much storage space as other cities do, attaining a low rank in the 11th percentile for facilities per capita among cities in Massachusetts.

The fact that Quincy is growing, but not doing so at a particularly rapid rate, also bears mentioning in our discussion of storage facilities per person. The US Census reports that Quincy saw 3% more people move there in the first decade of this century. That's not insignificant, though it is 0.1% less than the 3.1% population that Massachusetts saw altogether. But remember that, despite the fact that population growth probably isn't generating a great amount of demand for storage in Quincy, the city already has relatively few facilities for the size of its current population.
