How can you hunt for a cheap storage unit if you don't know how much one in Sewell should cost? 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 we've had our analysts at SelfStorage.com analyze all the data you might need to find a cheap unit in Sewell.

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. So are there a large or small number of storage businesses operating in Sewell?
SelfStorage.com has 2 storage facilties in Sewell, NJ listed on its network. New Jersey cities have an average 3 self-storage facilities listed on our national network. To give you a little more perspective, that's 1 more facilities than are listed in Sewell, meaning Sewell offers slightly lower-than-average options. It should come as litte surprise then that Sewell only ranks as the 59th largest storage market out of the 113 cities in New Jersey, accounting for a mere 0.57% of the state's total facilities. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in New Jersey, Sewell also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 7 fewer than the national average of 9, to be precise.
But of course, comparing Sewell to other cities in New Jersey or across the nation regardless of population tells us very little. How, then, does Sewell with its 38,950 people compare to cities of a like size? Upon analysis we have discovered that Sewell certainly does not have a large number of storage facilities for its size, and may in fact be significantly underserved. The 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket of cities on our network averages 7 facilities, 5 more than are available in Sewell. Other cities clearly have a good deal more storage space for their populations than does Sewell. One may of course argue that measuring Sewell against cities of a like size isn't the best yardstick and does not prove that there are few storage facilities for the number of people who live there. In order to address these concerns we've looked at Sewell's facilities per person, which seems to have supported our former conclusions. For a city of 38,950, 2 self-storage facilities is not a high number at all: in fact, Sewell only places in the 10th percentile for facilities per capita in United States cities, indicating a meager level of storage coverage. Just as Sewell offers little storage space per person on a national scale, the same goes when we compare the city to others in its state, where it only ranks in the 15th percentile for facilities per capita.
It's often true that the same storage unit at the same storage facility will cost significantly more or less in April than it does in November. That's because self storage is a seasonal industry. Storage prices generally reach their peak during the period from May to September, coinciding with moving season. National Moving Day (the day following Memorial Day) is typically seen as the first real day of the high season and is often the busiest day of the year for storage facilities. College students looking for a place to keep their things during the summer holiday can also have an effect on high season prices, pushing up prices on smaller units in particular, which is something to keep in mind if you live in a college town.
The price difference between high and low seasons in Sewell is minimal, which means you shouldn't have to worry about huge rate changes from one season to the next. But even if price changes are less of a risk in Sewell, locking in a rate is almost always a smart, safe move. August is the least expensive month for storage in Sewell, with an average price of $34.3 for a storage unit. December is the most expensive month, when storage goes for an average rate of $93.33.
Some of the most successful storage finds occur when the storage seeker includes nearby towns, suburbs, and neighborhoods in their search. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Sewell than in other nearby cities, we can make it easier for you to decide whether or not to take the time on a wider search.
Sewell's average price of $46.17 a month for a unit ranks it as the 98th most expensive city for self-storage in New Jersey, which itself ranks as the 5th most expensive state for storage. To give you a better idea of what this means, Sewell's average price is $50.43 less 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. 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 Sewell is $46.17 and the median income in New Jersey is $63,646.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 0.87% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. When compared to the price of storage as a percent of income in all New Jersey cities, Sewell ranks at the 12th percentile, meaning that storage here is extremely affordable.
Sewell storage prices are very cheap on the national scale as well. When compared with national cities they rank in the 9th percentile. Expect to pay $25.98 less than the national average of $72.15 when searching for self storage in Sewell.
