A greater number of storage facilities equates to more available storage space, so the number of facilities operating in your city will be one of the most important factors in your storage search. So does Reno offer plenty of options when it comes to different storage facilities?
There are 38 total storage facilities in Reno, NV on the SelfStorage.com network. Reno is home to a slightly-higher number of storage facilities than most other cities in Nevada. The average city in Nevada is home to 22 storage businesses, 16 less than what can be found in Reno. This ranks Reno as the 2nd largest storage market out of 13 Nevada cities in terms of number of facilities, making up 13.53% of the state's total. How does Reno fare against cities outside of Nevada? On a national scale, it still has more facilities than the average city, 29 more than the average 9, to be more precise.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Reno to its neighbors in Nevada or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. So how does Reno, with its population of 219,636, compare to cities with similar populations? Reno offers tons of storage space for a city its size: other cities with populations 100,000 to 250,000 average only 18 storage facilities, while Reno offers 20 more than that. But on the other hand, Reno's count of facilities per capita seems to have contended the notion that it has tons of extra storage space for the 219,636 people living there. On a national scale, Reno ranks in the 44th percentile for self-storage facilities per person, clearly indicating that most other cities on our network offer a greater number of storage businesses per capita. In other words, due to a relative lack of extra storage space, the 219,636 people living in Reno might have a harder time locating the right storage unit for them than they would in other cities. Perhaps if we only compare Reno to other cities in Nevada it might appear to have more storage space? Unfortunately, even by that measure it does seem as if Reno offers relatively little space, as it places in the 25th percentile for per capita storage facilities in Nevada.
The fact that Reno 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 Reno saw 19.3% more people move there in the first decade of this century. That's not insignificant, though it is 15.8% less than the 35.1% population that Nevada saw altogether. Remember, though, that while relatively fewer people are moving into Reno and generating additional demand for storage, there's already a shorter supply of that storage than in most other cities in Nevada, as Reno had a low level of facilities per capita for its state.
