Storage rental rates are highly seasonal, with prices often fluctuating widely throughout the year. 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. The single busiest day for self-storage businesses is typically the notorious 'National Moving Day' (which facility operators have dubbed 'Crazy Tuesday' for the chaotic scene at many facilities) the day after Memorial Day. University towns often see the sharpest seasonal spikes, as college students rent a significant number of storage units when they go home during their summer break. Smaller sized units in particular will see a rise in price during this period.
Self storage prices in Omaha 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 though you shouldn't have to worry as much about your rates changing later in the year, it's always best to lock in your rate with the facility if possible. Those looking for self storage in Omaha will find the lowest prices in March, with its average price of $41.43. July, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $75.
