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. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. However, if self-storage (often called mini storage or public self storage) in Statesville is relatively cheap for the area then searching farther afield might do little good. So how do prices in Statesville stack up to the rest of the state?

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.

Of course, simply comparing cities irrespective of their various populations tells us very little about these cities, even when we're comparing Statesville to other cities in North Carolina.

One might point out that comparing Statesville to cities of a similar size doesn't prove its healthy supply of storage space for the size of the population, and that a better measure would be actually looking at its facilities per capita.
