Successfully booking the storage unit you're looking for will have much to do with the number of self storage businesses in your city, as the more facilities there are the more options you'll have available. When it comes to the number of facilities operating in Brick, how many options are available?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 6 storage businesses operating facilities in Brick. Brick's 6 facilities make it one of the larger cities for storage in New Jersey: the state average is 3 facilities per city, 3 less than what's available in Brick. Brick accounts for a surprising 1.69% of all facilities listed in New Jersey, coming in at 11th out of 113 cities in terms of facility count. While Brick may be above average for its state, it's not on a national scale, coming in 3 below the national average of 9 facilities.
But of course, there are vast differences in population between Brick and other cities in New Jersey, and even more so nationwide, so not controlling for population makes little sense. Are the 6 facilities in Brick sufficient at supplying the 76,119 people who call it home with enough extra storage space? On average, cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 have 11 storage facilities listed on our network, which means that Brick, with 5 fewer facilities, has a slightly-low amount of storage space for a city its size. In addition, if we look at Brick's per capita facility count, our former findings seem to be definitively validated: Brick does seem to have few facilities for its size. For a city of 76,119, 6 self-storage facilities is not a high number at all: in fact, Brick only places in the 19th percentile for facilities per capita in United States cities, indicating a meager level of storage coverage. How does Brick compare to other cities in New Jersey? Even when we restict the scope to other cities in its state, Brick still only ranks at the 36th percentile for per capita storage facilities.
It's not uncommon for another community a few miles down the road to offer substanial savings on storage compared to the rates in your community. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Brick than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.
Brick's average price of $106.7 a month for a unit ranks it as the 36th most expensive city for self-storage in New Jersey, which itself ranks as the 5th most expensive state for storage. In more exact terms, storage in Brick costs an average of $10.10 more than the average storage unit in New Jersey, which goes for 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. To give you a better idea of affordability, we've created a 'relative price' scale that estimates how expensive storage is for median income earners in that state. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Brick is $106.7 and the median income in New Jersey is $63,646.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 2.01% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. As a percentage of income, storage costs rank at the 68th percentile among cities in New Jersey, making Brick more expensive than most cities.
The same holds true on a national scale, where storage in Brick is comparatively somewhat expensive, ranking at the 68th percentile among cities nationwide. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $34.55 more than that for self storage in Brick.
