One of the most prominent factors involved with finding a cheap storage unit is the time of year you go searching for that unit, as storage prices change due to seasonal demand. Storage prices generally reach their peak during the period from May to September, coinciding with moving season. The day after Memorial Day (which those in the moving and storage industries often refer to as 'Crazy Tuesday') is typically seen as the start of the high season and is frequently the most expensive day to rent storage during that season. Cities with high proportions of university students may see more pronounced seasonal highs and lows, as many students book storage units during the summer.
Our data shows that the average price of a storage unit does not change throughout the year in Concord to the same degree as it does in most cities, so seasonality should be less of a hassle for those looking for storage in Concord. Still, hunting for storage during the cheapest month of the year is always a great way to find a good deal. February is the least expensive month for storage in Concord, with an average price of $36 for a storage unit. March is the most expensive month, when storage goes for an average rate of $114.
Self storage rates being as highly-dependent on the real estate market as they are, it should come as no surprise that prices can change dramatically within the space of a few miles. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. You might have to spend more on gas getting out to that unit, but the savings you'll be building up could totally compensate for that. That being said, if we can determine that self-storage (which also goes by mini storage and public storage) prices are lower in Concord 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.
