Columbia is the academic capital of Missouri and the seat of the state's brain-power, hosting both a large portion of Missouri's colleges and universities (including the University of Missouri, the state's largest university, as well as Columbia College and Stephens College) as well as Missouri's most educated population, with more than 50% of Columbians having attained a bachelor's degree. Like many other college towns, Columbia possess a politically liberal culture, which is in stark contrast to the surrounding conservative state. Columbia is the largest city in the Mid-Missouri region and is closely connected to the state's capital, Jefferson City, which is only a 30 minute commute south. Columbia has been experiencing an urban revival in recent years, with its downtown seeing a large amount of development as new apartments, condos, and businesses transform the cityscape. Of course, if you're a Columbian then none of that is news to you, but do you know how much you should expect to pay for self storage in Columbia during the high and low seasons?

The unit in Columbia, MO I I had planned on booking jumped in price from January to May. 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 high season lasts from late spring to late summer, the most popular period for those moving into a new home. Known to some in the industry as 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest of the year for storage and brings the high season into full swing. 5x5 and 5x10 units often see wider seasonal swings, primarily due to college students renting these smaller sizes when they leave town for the summer. College towns will be particularly affected by this.

Those looking for storage in Columbia shouldn't have to worry as much about seasonal prices swings, as according to our data these swings are much less extreme here than elsewhere. Despite the low level of seasonality, those looking for a self storage unit may still want to lock in their price at the time of booking.

Your chances are lowest during May, which with an average price of $107.99 is the most expensive time to book a unit.
