Self Storage in Bergenfield, NJ: Frequently Asked Questions

Is self storage in Bergenfield expensive?

It's often true that certain areas in a city offer much lower storage rental rates than others. By widening the breadth of your search, you'll open yourself up to even more facilities and a greater range of possibilities. Sure, it might be more of a pain to drive to the facility, but hundreds of dollars in potential savings might alleviate that. Knowing whether or not you should look in nearby cities depends on whether or not self-storage (sometimes called mini storage or public self storage) in those cities is less expensive than in Bergenfield. We've gone ahead and figured that out for you.

With its average price of $177 a month for a unit, Bergenfield is the 10th most expensive city for self-storage in the state of New Jersey, which itself is the 5th most-expensive state for storage. In general, storage units in Bergenfield go for $80.40 more than the state average of $96.6.

An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Bergenfield 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 Bergenfield is $177 and the median income in New Jersey is $63,646.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 3.34% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. According to our calulations, this makes Bergenfield quite the expensive place to rent a storage unit, its price as a percent of income coming in at the 91st percentile of all cities in New Jersey.

Bergenfield storage prices are very expensive on the national scale as well. When compared with national cities they rank in the 93rd percentile. Expect to pay $104.85 more than the national average of $72.15 when searching for self storage in Bergenfield.

Are self storage prices in Bergenfield, NJ lower in certain seasons? Should I book my unit in the spring, summer, fall or winter to get the best deal?

Finding and locking in a good monthly rate on your self storage unit has a lot to do with the time of year you book it, as prices vacillate from season to season. The high season typically begins in April or May and lasts till August or September, with prices dropping back down to their lowest in the late fall and winter. 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. 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.

Bergenfield is particularly affected by seasonal swings, seeing a much wider fluctuation in price than most cities. To avoid these seasonal changes as much as possible, try to lock in a rate during the slow season that will remain unchanged through the high season. Shop for self storage in Bergenfield during August to get the best price, when units go for an average of $30. Prices reach their highest in July, which at an average price of $177 a month you might want to avoid.

What's a normal price for a storage unit in Bergenfield, NJ?

You'll have a tough time telling a good deal on storage in Bergenfield from a great one if you don't know what storage in Bergenfield normally costs. Since the average price of storage can be over $100 different between two cities in the same state, any past experiences booking storage elsewhere will be little help here. That's why the analysts at SelfStorage.com have crunched the numbers so that you can know what to expect before you begin your storage search.

Storage rentals in Bergenfield have an average montly rate of $177. If you're thinking of renting a unit for the long term, that's approximately $2124 per year. That average doesn't discriminate by size, so it shouldn't be taken as an extremely accurate figure. Prices for different unit sizes are, of course, quite different from one another. There are six standard sizes of storage units in Bergenfield, including: 10x10, 10x15, and 10x20. The average prices for each are:

Storage Unit SizeAverage Price in Bergenfield, NJ
10x10$160
10x15$232
10x20$320

Does Bergenfield, NJ offer plenty of options when it comes to different storage facilities?

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. In terms of the number of storage businesses in Bergenfield, are there plenty of options available, or few?

According to our numbers, there are 3 total storage facilities in Bergenfield, NJ. New Jersey's state average is also 3 units per city. Among these 113 cities, Bergenfield ranks in 35th place for the most storage facilities, with 0.85% of all facilities in New Jersey. Though Bergenfield is average among cities in its state, it has 6 fewer facilities than most cities across the nation do.

But of course, there are vast differences in population between Bergenfield and other cities in New Jersey, and even more so nationwide, so not controlling for population makes little sense. Bergenfield, NJ has approximately 25,583 inhabitants. Do the 3 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? Comparing Bergenfield to other cities in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket, we find that Bergenfield doesn't quite have as many self storage facilities as average. Other cities in that bracket average 7 facilities, while Bergenfield has 4 fewer. One might point out that comparing Bergenfield to cities of a similar size doesn't prove its lack of storage for the size of the population, and that a better measure would be actually looking at its facilities per capita. Well, we have, and it has firmly strenthened our former results. On a self-storage facilities per-person basis, Bergenfield ranks in the 30th percentile among cities across the United States. In other words, there's not exactly a ton of extra storage space for the 25,583 people living there. Compared to other cities in New Jersey, on the other hand, Bergenfield doesn't seem so lacking in storage facilities per capita. In the scope of its state, Bergenfield ranks in the 52nd percentile.

Before drawing the topic of storage facilities per capita to a close, we think it important to bring the fact that Bergenfield has been experiencing a shrinking population to the table. Bergenfield had 2.4% less people in 2010 than it did in 2000. The state of New Jersey, however, had 4.5% more. With a lower growth in population than the rest of New Jersey and a high number of facilities per person for the state, Bergenfield should be a great place to find a storage unit.
