Is self storage in Bedford cheaper or more expensive than other cities in Ohio?

Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. The more expansive your search, the more facilities you'll be able to compare, and the more options you'll have. The longer trip to the facility could easily be worth the monthly savings, particularly if you only plan on accessing your unit occassionally. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Bedford than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

Bedford is the 1st most expensive city for self storage in the state of Ohio, with the average price of a storage unit there coming in at $215. Ohio itself is the 30th most expensive state for storage. In general, storage units in Bedford go for $151.25 more than the state average of $63.75.

These average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage in one city is compared to another, as the cost of living changes from place to place. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Bedford storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. A storage unit in Bedford will on average cost 5.61% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in Ohio is $45,991.00. According to our calulations, this makes Bedford quite the expensive place to rent a storage unit, its price as a percent of income coming in at the 100th percentile of all cities in Ohio.

In addition, storage in Bedford is also very expensive on the national scale, ranking at the 98th percentile compared to other cities across the nation. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $142.85 more than that for self storage in Bedford.

How many self-storage facilities do you offer in Bedford? Is there enough coverage to meet the population's demand?

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. So how many storage facilities are there in Bedford?

In total, 7 Bedford storage businesses have listed themselves on our self-storage facility network. How does 7 storage facilities compare with the number on offer in other cities in Ohio? It's relatively low, 2 lower than the average 9 on offer in other cities in Ohio, to be more precise. Bedford accounts for only 0.93% of facilities in Ohio, ranking as the 32nd largest storage market out of all 88 cities in the state. And just as Bedford is below the state average, it's also below the national average of 9 by 2 storage facilities.

Of course, simply comparing cities irrespective of their various populations tells us very little about these cities, even when we're comparing Bedford to other cities in Ohio. Bedford, OH has approximately 12,851 inhabitants. Do the 7 storage businesses there offer the community enough storage space? It turns out that the average city in the 10,000 to 25,000 population bracket has 6 self-storage facilities listed on our network. That's 1 fewer facilities than are listed in Bedford, leading us to conclude that Bedford is slightly above-average among cities of similar size. One might point out that comparing Bedford 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. Well, we have, and it has firmly validated our former results. On a storage facilities per capita basis, Bedford ranks in the 78th percentile nationwide, meaning that it has a very high number of facilities for each resident compared with other cities. How does Bedford compare to its neighbors in Ohio? It seems that even compared to other cities in Ohio, Bedford still has a large amount of storage space on offer for its population, as it sits in the 79th percentile for facilities per capita.

Another thing to note is the fact that the population of Bedford has been shrinking in recent years, falling by 9.3% from 2000 to 2010, according to data from the US Census. During that same period Ohio as a whole experienced population growth of 1.6%. Combine Bedford's lower population growth than the rest of Ohio with its above-average number of facilities per capita for the state, and you get a recipe for relatively low storage demand, which should make the job of finding a unit easier.

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

Changing seasonal demand often causes storage prices to swing between highs and lows during different parts of the year. 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 high season comes into full swing on the day after Memorial Day, which is such a popular time to rent storage that those in the industry have taken to calling it 'Crazy Tuesday.' College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.

Compared with other cities, Bedford experiences very high seasonal changes. One way of insulating yourself against seasonal rate changes is by signing a contract with the facility that specifies a length of stay and a single, unchanging rate, if possible. The best month to go searching for storage in Bedford is April, when the average unit goes for a low $29 a month. The worst month, on the other hand, is March, when units hit a high of $215.
