As self storage is a seasonal industry, the rates you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. 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. Sometimes called 'National Moving Day' or 'Crazy Tuesday', the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest for storage businesses and the highest point of the high 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.

Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Jefferson City and other cities in Missouri, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. How, then, does Jefferson City with its 41,297 people compare to cities of a like size? The average number of facilities listed on our storage network in cities with populations of 25,000 to 50,000 is 7.

That's a 5.3%-lower growth rate than Missouri, which grew by 7%, saw as a whole.
